The friend of the San Bernardino shooters has now been placed under arrest. But what did he do?
Enrique Marquez was arrested today in California and faces probable charges for his role in the San Bernardino shootings that left 14 dead.
Enrique was a Muslim convert who was good friends with the 2 California shooters who went on the rampage. He admitted he had discussed a possible terrorism assault 3 years ago with one of the shooters, Syed Farook.
Enrique also provided the rifles that were used in the assault; Syed had told him that he might be unable to pass the background check.
So Enrique knew that Syed was planning a terrorist assault and he provided the weapons. In most courts of law, this would be called being an accomplice. And yet our government has waited almost two weeks to arrest him.
We continue to await word on Syed's family who must have seen the arsenal they were building, the pipe bombs, the rounds of ammunition, and the guns -- and yet they remained silent. Syed's father was the one who said he wondered why Syed was upset since he, the father, had told Syed that Israel would cease to exist within two years.
How many more people like this do we have living among us in America?
