FBI press conference

President Obama is not going to like this.

The FBI has taken over the investigation into the mass shooting in San Bernardino, CA.

Moments ago, an FBI official said during a press conference, "We are now investigating these horrific acts as acts of terrorism."

Syed Farook, 28, and his wife Tashfeen Malik, 27, killed 14 people and wounded 21 at the Inland Regional Center on Wednesday. Hours later, they were killed during a wild rolling shootout with police.

President Obama, who memorized the Koran as a boy, previously called the mass shooting in San Bernardino "workplace violence."

Most of the victims were attending a holiday lunch for employees of the San Bernardino Mental Health Department.

Farook was an employee of the San Bernardino County health department.

During the press conference, the FBI official addressed reporters questions about CNN ransacking through the terrorists apartment after the FBI boarded up the apartment and turned it over to the landlord.

Angry social media users dragged CNN's reporters for rummaging through a baby crib, searching through piles of clothing and the personal affects of the terrorists.

"Last night .. we turned [the apartment] over back to the residents," said the FBI official during a press conference. "Once the residents have the apartment, and we're not in it anymore, we don't control it."

CNN showed video footage of official documents left in the apartment, including a driver's license that belonged to Farook's mother, Rafia Farook.

A Twitter user joked that, "this same woman just applied for 358,973 credit cards."

Shortly after CNn was allowed into the apartment by the landlord, police took the landlord aside and told him the apartment was still off limits to reporters. CNN reporters were kicked out and the apartment was once again boarded up.

    I wonder how many times that brown man in the back has been harrassed by those same ppl giving that press conference.

    It's a shame because as the extremists use more and more creative methods to attack Westerners, innocent Muslim's will be discriminated against. And even though I'm saying that, I myself would be extremely uncomfortable riding a plane with a person that looks Middle Eastern. Nucca might be Puerto Rican, but I'd be shooting bullets at him with my eyes. But I'll fight for them publicly because as a black person I can relate to being judged by the actions of the lowest in my community.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    They always have 1 in every conference ?

    A brother-in-law of one of the San Bernardino
    shooters said the Christmas party massacre was “a personal act”
    unconnected to the culprit’s Muslim faith and described him simply as “a
    bad person.”

    Farhan Khan said he had “no idea” what led to Wednesday’s rampage, in
    which 14 people were killed. He added that Syed Rizwan Farook and his
    wife, Tashfeen Malik, were “a happy couple” who loved their baby
    daughter. The tot was left with her grandmother before the mass
    shooting.

    In an interview with NBC News, Khan once more expressed sorrow to the
    victims’ families and said he was “very upset and angry” at Farook for
    his actions.

    “What’s the outcome?” Khan asked. “You left your six-month-old
    daughter … in this life. Some people cannot have kids. God gave you a
    gift of a daughter. And you left that kid behind. What … what did you
    achieve?”

    Khan, who is married to Farook’s sister, also revealed that he had begun legal moves to adopt the orphaned girl.

  • maleorderside

    That grandma must be pissed. Whose gonna come pick that dang Chile up? She has temple on Sunday :(

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Speaking of guns, y'all know T.I is starting in the Roots remake?

    *jacked ms nb c

    Khan added: “My message is, you know, that I am with all those
    families. I understand … how they are going through right now, how sad
    they are. And my heart is with them. And … sorry that this has happened.

    “It shouldn’t happen. Something … stupid that something like this
    doesn’t relate to my religion. I am Muslim. I’m a good person. And
    there’s a lot of good Muslims there. He was a bad person, that was his
    personal act.”

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I like that the brother-in-law said this.

  • Yoni

    LMAO

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Lol

  • Lulu

    I'm sure the President will accept the FBI ' S findings. Did you really expect him to take the word of some keyboard warriors without credible proof considering the high stakes involved world wide? He is an educated man and he deals with facts, not guesses.

  • Yoni

    Photo op, right.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Yes, it's a revival *sister act 2 choir * and he will be Cyrus

  • LibraGirlonly

    I was in a store in a isle looking for my toiletries I turned the corner to the other ilsle and a white guy and his child where in that isle and the little girl looked at me and said uh oh and ran I was like wow. The dad looked at me and said stranger danger I was like yeah right. I was thinking are you teaching this child to be afraid of black people.

  • LibraGirlonly

    LMAO

  • Bootcampgirl

    I wondered that too when they were doing the news conference updates on Wednesday, he may be some form of security..*shrugs*

  • SpillyNillie

    But they had guns and pipe bombs...what were those for? Clearly this couple had terroristic intentions...I think Farook was upset at the conversation that took place at the holiday party and decided to make a move.

  • Just Keya

    As WHO? And WHY are they doing a remake?!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Chicken George ?...I kid

  • Just Keya

    FUGGIN DEAD. NOOOOOOOO. Who's idea was this?

    ALBANY, N.Y. – An upstate New York
    sheriff is urging residents of his county who are licensed gun owners to
    arm themselves when they leave home, citing recent mass shootings in
    the United States and Paris.

    "I urge you to responsibly take advantage of your legal right to
    carry a firearm," Ulster County Sheriff Paul Van Blarcum, a Democrat,
    wrote on the department's Facebook page less than 24 hours after 14
    people were shot dead in San Bernardino, California.

    "I'm not trying to drum up a militia of any sort," Van Blarcum told
    The Associated Press on Thursday. "It's just a reminder that if you want
    to, you have a right to carry it. It might come in handy. It's better
    to have it than not have it. We're partners with the public in crime
    prevention."

    The largely rural county in the Catskill Mountains about two hours
    north of New York City has 10,000 licensed handgun owners, Van Blarcum
    said.

  • Just Keya

    Temple? Is she Jewish? I thought that was the Mosque?

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Or Masjid
    OH :kona:

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Did slaves come in his color at that time?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Why does that movie need to be re made? It's not like we can forget....smh

  • harley_quinn2.0

    But for real tho why T.I.? And who in his camp did he consult with on this decision?

  • Just Keya

    It does not need a remake. At all.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Cyrus, a headstrong slave. Mekhi in it too.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Well that would be more realistic than Ben Vereen's pure African arse in the role. TI is a good actor.

  • Just Keya

    Fuggin dead. ...well Queen was yellow.....

  • PettyEyezPrime

    A headstrong slave named Cyrus

  • SpillyNillie

    *clears throat* yella not yellow *giggles*

  • Bootcampgirl

    well is this same sheriff going to be the defense witness when they starting killing folks they "suspect" as a threat...not saying not to protect yourself...but according to some courts, we are not partners with the po-po in crime prevention..

  • Just Keya

    *rolls eyes* for what Baby Jesus?

  • Just Keya

    oops. lol. Sorry.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    You know he deep, stop playing ?

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    For a new generation sorta like The Wiz. I own the box set and my children have seen it, but many haven't. It might be a good time for our kids to see where we came from and how crazy it is to take their opportunities for granted.

  • Just Keya

    As a kiddie pool. :poof:

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Idk. I'm reading more now. Letting google be my friend lol.

  • Just Keya

    Then why can't they watch the original? Nothing is wrong with the original and it won't be watered down.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    You gon let Cyr...I mean Clifford be great ?

  • Bootcampgirl

    Now Bird, I have to disagree with you there...I love Tip but good actor he is not..

  • Just Keya

    He is good in hood rolls. He don't have to act too much doing that. However, Roots is not a hood roll. Well not the original. The remake might be....

  • SpillyNillie

    I agree...maybe they're assuming that the younger audience will identify more with familiar faces *shrugs*

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    I kinda sorta feel where he is coming from. I also think that if a nucca trying to shoot everybody anyway, instead of cowering in a corner everyone needs to rush that fool to minimize casualties instead of being sitting ducks.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    They play Roots all the time. Mr. Reading rainbow is a starruh. I've never seen all of Roots ?

  • Bootcampgirl

    And it's going to be on A&E..

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Yea, ok. This chit definitely does not apply to Black men. FOH

  • Just Keya

    I did not know the first several times who the people were, when I was made to watch Roots, however, it still did the job. I'm not for a remake. And kids need to read the book as well.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    This is what in thinking. I need to see a clip first because I can't picture certain people ?in certain roles

  • Bootcampgirl

    right, the first one who even attempts to heed his warning will be put up under the jail..

  • Just Keya

    Yall let me know how all 5 of the nights go....or are they going to do it in one day?

  • PettyEyezPrime

    The 1's in the house did ?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Can't they make a movie about something positive we contributed to this country? I want my kid to see us in a positive light. We come from greatness but how will our children know that if all they see are us as slaves.

  • Bootcampgirl

    I won't be able to because I won't be watching..

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Exactly. Sounds like a damn set up to me.

  • Just Keya

    +1

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I love Tip but good actor he is not..
    *****
    I laughed out loud

  • Bootcampgirl

    I've seen plenty of positive docs/movies depicting us in a positive light, those are the only movies I try to show my kids at work...

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Puddle ??

  • SpillyNillie

    Honestly, I don't think they would understand nor receive the message. We learned about slavery in school. I don't think slavery is taught as much or at all in school now.

    If I showed Roots to my 9 year old son, who at this time in life does not see color, he would have 101 questions...

  • Just Keya

    I am not showing Roots the original or the remake to my 9 year old. my 12 and up sure.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    NO! They want us to FOREVER remember we were slaves! *bams desk like DTTS* LOL

  • Bootcampgirl

    One would be, why is this soooooo looonnngggg...#kona

  • Just Keya

    no, it's easy to just remake a film, and not actually to the homework and write a script. They can just piggy back off of something that was great. smdh.

  • SpillyNillie

    LOL...he wouldn't make it past 32 minutes...

  • LibraGirlonly

    They should make a movie about the brave men and women who risked their lives during the slave revolt.

  • Bootcampgirl

    lol..kids attention spans are the size of a gnat...they ain't got time for 5 days of Roots...

  • Just Keya

    truth be told, as an adult, I am not sitting all that time to watch Roots. Sorry. I did my time.

  • Just Keya

    "Roots" premiered in 1977, and is based on the 1976 Alex Haley novel Roots: The Saga of an American Family. The Roots' ?uestlove is serving as the executive music producer for the remake. Other stars of the series include Forest Whitaker, Laurence Fishburne, Anna Paquin, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, James Purefoy, and Mekhi Phifer.

  • Miany

    They should be remaking cleopatra, depicting her in a more historically accurate shade.

  • Bootcampgirl

    Ummmm, still not interested...

  • Just Keya

    Now this I would be for.

  • SpillyNillie

    Where's Clifford Harris?

  • Just Keya

    NOPE. Not at all.

  • jussaying

    ...Jonathan Rhys Meyers? The Irish actor that was on the Tudors? Wasn't there reports of him using the n word before...

  • Just Keya

    Oh sorry, the article was about him and they were saying who else was going to be in it.

  • Just Keya

    Again, I won't be supporting this.

  • SpillyNillie

    Exactly...I'm sure his role will reflect his choice of words

  • jussaying

    It isn't. They have tried to stop teaching it entirely.

  • Just Keya

    And what kind of soundtrack are they trying to do? Uhh I thought Roots was mostly instrumentals? See, already, I'm like naw.

  • jussaying

    Definitely in poor taste to have him affiliated with this film smh.

  • Bootcampgirl

    TI vs TIP slave edition..

  • Bootcampgirl

    damn, that's a fail before it even begins

  • Just Keya

    IMO redoing this film is in poor taste. IMO.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I'll pass ?

  • Just Keya

    DEAD. I don't wanna hear Rick Ross rapping over the movie while Toby gets his foot cut off. I'm good.

  • Just Keya

    Miany, wasn't it you who's daughter (or niece) had to do a project and you made her take all of the names we gave you and had her research them all.
    Or no? :facepalm:

    Saying all that to say, sometimes we have to teach our own what we want them to know...

  • Sincerity7

    LOL - I caught that too. Sandra can't stop herself from those random unnecessarily shady comments about the President.

  • jussaying

    I agree. But Hollywood is very lazy too. They have been finding any and everything to remake lately. If they show this in schools, however, I hope they set the stage for it. Maybe then these dumb spritelets will stop posting dumb stuff on Twitter like where is the all white version of the Wiz.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I agree that's exactly what I am talking about. I am reading a book called Black Genesis. It'd about the cover up of the ancient Egyptians who were of African decent but no one wants to be honest and say that because it was the greatest civilization ever built. The people drew themselves on the walls and they most diffentely were black. The ancient Greeks said their skin was black as night and remember Egypt is the land of Ham and Ham was one of Noah's son who was black that is why it's called land of Ham.

  • Just Keya

    Hollywood is to lazy and it's a damn shame. And the all white version of the wiz was on many many moons ago. It's called "The Wizard of OZ"

  • Bootcampgirl

    Agreed, I think they could have left that Back to the Future...in the past..

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Cleopatra was of the Ptolemaic dynasty. Ptolemy was a Macedonian Greek and his successors mostly married within the family to keep bloodlines "pure." She WAS white.

  • Bootcampgirl

    All I saw was Ham...#imhungry

  • LibraGirlonly

    What about Hidden Colors Trilogy? You can only find it at the swap meet lol

  • Just Keya

    It'd about the cover up of the ancient Egyptians who were of African decent but no one wants to be honest and say that because it was the greatest civilization ever built.
    -------------------------------
    See, this is where I get annoyed. CLEARLY they were of African decent because of where they were. It's no secret. Not at all.

  • Just Keya

    I see you MOD with the facts! Yasss girl.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    There were absolutely black Egyptians. Cleopatra was NOT one of them though.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I minored in History, focused heavily on the Ancient Middle East (Sumeria etc...), Ancient Egypt, and Ancient Rome. I LOVE history.

  • jussaying

    Lol that's the irony. The kids are so dumb today. But you see that mess anytime an all black celebration comes about. There's always the jackass asking why their isn't an all white thing.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    One "History" book in a reference to early immigration referred to Africans brought to the U.S. as "workers," not slaves.

  • LibraGirlonly

    they try to say the people from ancient Egypt is from Persia of a medeteranian decent but those people came later l.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I got so lost in that book. There was a black man forgot his name. He did his thesis on it a long time ago he was known for being very intelligent proposed that they do DNA on the Pharoh's to prove it but they people in Cairo said no to that. You ever see the Egyptian man that do the documentaries about the Pharoh's well the author of the book said not to believe a word he says the book is really awesome.

  • Sankara&Lumumba

    Dear SANDRA!!!

    All these DEADLIEST U.S. MASS SHOOTINGS since 1984 were perpetrating by CHRISTIANS aka Jesus 'followers and lover and if my memory does me justice, President Obama was a young man still "memorizing the Koran".

    I was never afraid of muslim men or indian men
    not at all. even on a plane.
    NOW, the MEDIA wants us to be afraid of MUSLIM WOMEN.
    thats why they keep focusing on this angle.
    Because the week before it was, "who is afraid of orphaned children and women" Now they are trying to create a Woman Jihadist!!! its ridiculous.
    I dont belive any of this stuff about her shooting at them out a window.
    I dont believe she pledged allegiance to ISIS on a facebook page.

    THE POLICE LIE as we know, and the FBI will tell us anything as well.

    Show me the video and show me the facebook posting.
