New heartbreaking and disturbing details have been revealed about the San Bernardino terror, in a new report released by the Justice Department and the Police Foundation.
On the morning of December 2, 2015, at a training session and holiday party for San Bernardino county health workers, Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and his wife Tashfeen Malik, 29, opened fire on the unsuspecting workers, shooting over 100 rounds in two to three minutes. The pair killed 14 people and wounded 22, leaving carnage that resembled a war zone.
The new report released Friday, September 9, titled “Bringing Calm to Chaos,” reviews the police response to the attacks, provides new details, as well as lessons on how law enforcement can respond to future attacks.
It describes heros who tried to stop the attack, and the carnage police found when they entered, including dying victims pleading for their lives.
Farook is described as a health inspector at the department who was a diligent worker and tech-savvy with computer problems – but his colleagues thought he become “more stoic” after he returned from Saudi Arabia with his new bride, Malik, originally from Pakistan.
