He Killed 14 People Because They Mentioned His Beard
The latest spin by the lawyer for the family of the San Bernadino terrorists is the Sayed Farook and his wife killed 14 people, and wounded 17 others, in cold blood not because they were radicalized Daesh sympathizers, but because some of his co-workers had commented and joked with him about the beard he'd started growing after he returned from his month long paid vacation to Saudi Arabia.
WHAT A CROCK OF BULL ****!
No one goes out and buys assault rifles, flak vests, thousands of rounds of ammunition, and builds pipe bombs in revenge for a few remarks about a beard. I feel fairly confident in stating this, as I am a man who wears a beard and I know that around the country there are untold numbers of men who wear beards, including Muslim men, to whom it would never occur to conduct a well planned mass shooting over jokes about our beards.
This was a planned act of terrorism. The lawyer for the family is trying to shift the blame for the killings from the perpetrators to the victims. He needs to call the attack what it was, instead of trying to portray Farook as a victim driven to commit violence by intolerant co-workers. The people Farook and his wife murdered are the victims here, and no amount of double-talk by the family's lawyer will change that.
I believe Farook came back from Saudi Arabia intent on committing the terrorist act that took place in San Bernadino, and that his wife was instrumental in his radicalization. This is my opinion based on what has been reported thus far. Feel free to disagree with me and offer your reasons why you think the killings were not a terrorist act.
