| Four Years Ago Today: A Tribute to the Victims of the San Bernardino Jihad Attack
| Tuesday, December 03, 2019
Jihad Watch : Four years ago today, at 10:58 PST
on December 2, 2015, Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik began
shooting his own friends and colleagues at the San Bernardino County
Department of Public Health.

By 11:04, the first police arrived at the scene, but Farook and Malik
had already escaped. Four hours later (at 3:08), they were sighted on
North Tippecanoe Avenue in San Bernardino by a law enforcement officer,
and by 3:14:53, both had been killed in a dramatic shootout with police,
just 1.7 miles away from the Department of Public Health.
Here are the pictures of the 14 people who lost their lives in this Islamic Jihad attack. More can be learned about them here, here and here. What we don’t see here are the pictures of the 17 other people who
were injured during the shootings, nor do we know very much about what
they’ve gone through because of their injuries, or how they’ve have been
doing in the last four years since the attack.
We don’t know very much about their families, either, and the great price they have paid since that day, four years ago. I have had the honor of getting to know some of them. As a sworn Federal Law Enforcement Officer who has also been deeply
affected by this case, it is my intention, in the weeks, months and
years ahead, to help make sure that their stories are not forgotten, and
that on one fine day, we will all know more about what really happened
on that December day in San Bernardino.
