GENESIS 4:8-11 (THE FIRST MURDER)
8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.
11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;
GENESIS 6:11-13 (EARTH DESTROYED BECAUSE OF TERRORISM,MURDERS)
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
13 Thou shalt not kill.(Murder)(THAT INCLUDES ABORTION)
6 But whoso shall offend (HURT) one of these little ones (CHILDREN) which believe in me,(JESUS) it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.(THATS THE DEATH PENALTY FOLKS)
12 He that smiteth (MURDER)a man,(OR BABY) so that he die, shall be surely put to death.(THATS THE DEATH PENALTY PEOPLE)
20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils,(OCCULT) and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries,(DRUG ADDICTIONS) nor of their fornication,(SEX OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE) nor of their thefts.(STEALING)

2 And I will turn thee back,(RUSSIA-ARAB MUSLIM ISRAEL HATERS) and leave but the sixth part of thee,(5/6TH OR 300 MILLION DEAD RUSSIAN/ARAB/MUSLIMS I BELIEVE) and will cause thee to come up from the north parts,(RUSSIA) and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

Key developments-FROM LOS ANGELES TIMES-DEC 6,15-Two assailants opened fire in San Bernardino at a holiday party in the Inland Regional Center around 11 a.m. Wednesday. Fourteen people were killed and 21 wounded, most of them county employees. The Times is collecting their stories.The two attackers, who were married, were killed in a gun battle with police. They were U.S.-born Syed Rizwan Farook and Pakistan national Tashfeen Malik, and had an arsenal of ammunition and pipe bombs in their Redlands home.There is no sign the couple were part of a terrorist network, officials said, but it is officially investigating the shooting as terrorism. Federal law enforcement sources say the attack might also be workplace related. Officials said Malik pledged allegiance to Islamic State in a Facebook post and Farook had contact with people from at least two terrorist organizations overseas. A radio station and website associated with Islamic State claimed the couple were supporters of the militant group .Malik was a onetime "modern girl" who became religious during college and then began posting extremist messages on Facebook after arriving in the U.S., a family member in Pakistan told The Times.President Obama will give a rare address from the Oval Office on Sunday at 5 p.m. Pacific time, 8 p.m. Eastern time.
San Bernardino Shooting update: Rifles used in attack were modified to be illegal-Chris Keller December 04, 08:11 PM-89.3KPCC
Modifications made to rifles used Wednesday in the mass shooting in San Bernardino made them technically illegal to possess in California under the state's assault weapons ban.Fourteen people died and 19 people were injured in the shooting at the Inland Regional Center. Two police officers were later injured during a shootout that killed suspects Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik.Meredith Davis, a special agent with the bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, said the rifles were purchased legally. But the .223 caliber Smith & Wesson M&P 15 authorities recovered had been modified to make it fully automatic, illegal under federal law.A field test of the rifle showed the modification did not work, she said.The other rifle - a .223 caliber DPMS A-15 - was modified to accept a high-capacity magazine, and to bypass the so-called bullet button, which makes removing a magazine easier, Davis said.California bans guns with magazines that detach for quick reloading. Since 2000 the state has banned the sale or manufacture of magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds.At least four magazines designed to hold 30 rounds were recovered from the Inland Regional Center.Technicians are coming to California to examine both rifles to make an official determination, Davis said.Davis said the agency isn't publicizing where the rifles were sold, and declined to name the person who purchased the rifles citing the ongoing investigation.Earlier Friday, the Dave Bowdich, the FBI’s assistant director in charge of the Los Angeles Field Office, said the agency has spoken to the person who purchased the rifles. "That person is not under arrest at this point," Bowdich said.The rifles and two semi-automatic handguns were found Wednesday following the shootout. The handguns recovered had not been modified, Davis said. Authorities said Farook purchased those firearms legally.Authorities also recovered thousands of rounds of ammunition, explosive devices and a .22 caliber rifle.Legislators enacted California's assault weapons ban in 1989. Following a court challenge in 2000, the law was upheld. Gun owners could keep their assault weapons provided they registered with the state before Jan. 23, 2001.There are some 145,000 assault weapons that remain in the state under this grandfather provision, according to state Department of Justice data.
I JUST DISCOVERED WERE FAROOK AND MALIK LIVED BEFORE THEY MOVED TO THE REDLANDS HOME.THEY LIVED IN RIVERSIDE CALIFORNIA.RIGHT BESIDE THE GUY WHO BOUGHT THE RIFLE LEGALLY.TODAY POLICE BROKE INTO THE HOUSE OF EITHER THE ONE WHO BOUGHT THE RIFLE OR WERE FAROOK AND MALIK USED TO LIVE.I WILL HAVE TO FIND OUT MORE FROM THE NEWS ON THAT.ON THE UPDATE HERE.THE RAID WAS DONE ON THIS HOUSE IS BECAUSE THIS GUY WHO BOUGHT THE 2 RIFLES WAS FAROOKS ROOM MATE.NOT NEIBOUR.SO IT WAS THE HOUSE WERE BOTH LIVED.THE LONG RIFLE BUYER AND FAROOK.
Sources: Tashfeen Malik pledged allegiance to Islamic State on Facebook-los angeles times-dec 4,15
Tashfeen Malik, who joined husband Syed Rizwan Farook in the San Bernardino mass shooting that killed 14 people, pledged allegiance to an Islamic State leader in a Facebook posting, two federal law enforcement officials said Friday.The officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter, cautioned that the new evidence did not mean that the militant group directed Malik and her husband to carry out the attack and that investigators think it instead suggests that the couple had become self-radicalized.Malik, who was born in Pakistan, spent time in Saudi Arabia before becoming engaged to Farook. She gained legal permanent resident status last year after they were married.One of the officials said the post was made under a different name and had since been removed, apparently by Malik herself. FBI technicians were able to recover it. Officials said the posting strongly suggested the attack was premeditated.Another federal law enforcement source told The Times that the suspects made an attempt to destroy electronic devices that they owned, which held data that could have helped investigators. The law enforcement source characterized the efforts to destroy the devices as unsuccessful.Richard A. Serrano, Brian Bennett and Richard Winton
FBI seized guns, ammo, computer and notebook from home of San Bernardino shooters-Inside the home of San Bernardino shooters Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik-Kate Mather, Laura J. Nelson and Marisa GerberContact Reporters-DEC 4,15-LOS ANGELES TIMES
FBI agents who searched the Redlands home of the shooters involved in a San Bernardino attack earlier this week removed a .22 caliber rifle, dozens of boxes of ammunition, weapons accessories, invoices from two gun sellers, a laptop computer and several data storage devices, according to an inventory the FBI left behind at the scene.Other seemingly more mundane items removed from the home included Christmas lights, an iPhone, a bank receipt, audio cassettes and a notebook with foreign language writing. From a black Lexus parked nearby the agents took shooting targets, a U-Haul receipt, packaging for a Go Pro camera, legal documents and other items.The weapons invoices came from Cheaper Than Dirt and Budsgunshop. com, but the document left at the home did not say what purchases the invoices were for.Cheaper Than Dirt is a “shooting sports discounter” based in Fort Worth, Texas, that sells guns, ammunition and tactical gear over the phone and online, according to its website. Among its wares are camouflage armored vests, high-capacity magazines and an array of semi-automatic rifles. Its logo features a speeding bullet.“Bringing a firearm into your home is one of the most important decisions you can make,” a woman said in a peppy tone on the company’s message for callers waiting on hold. She later adds: “Federal law requires all firearms are to be shipped to federally licensed firearm dealers only.”Reached by email, Chief Operating Officer Roberta Wilson declined to comment on whether Cheaper Than Dirt sold anything to Syed Rizwan Farook or Tashfeen Malik.An employee who answered the phone for Budsgunshop.com said she could not comment.Not long after reporters were able to review the FBI inventory left at the Redlands home, a ticker at the top of the shop’s Web page showed 2,668 customers were currently online.The site, which assures customers that “purchasing a gun online is really, very easy,” includes a specific section focused on helping Californians buy guns.“Due to the amount of restrictions the State of California has placed for the ownership of firearms,” the site reads, “we have dedicated an entire category of our website to help get you the firearms you need! You can find some of our 100% verified California legal firearms in the categories below.”

KILLED CITIZENS AT INLAND REGIONAL CENTER
Fatalities-Robert Adams, 40-Injury: Fatal-Gender: Male-Hometown: Yucaipa-Occupation: Environmental health specialist-Marital status: Married-Children: 1--As an environmental health specialist with San Bernardino County, Robert Adams often inspected pools and food facilities during the construction phase.Adams, 40, and his wife grew up in the Inland Empire and were high school sweethearts, said family friend Jenni Kosse. They had tried to have kids for some time, she said, and he adored their 20-month-old daughter, Savannah. He loved taking her to the park and uploaded new pictures of her to Facebook almost every night."When you saw the three of them together," said a distressed Kosse, "you just wanted to jump in the middle and think, 'I want to have fun too.'"He always looked out for others. He could sense when someone was angry or frustrated, she said. He'd smile at them and ask, "How can I help you?" Almost always, Kosse said, the person's anger would melt away.Adams — who wore bright ties and his beard in a goatee — also spent time helping his parents, who donate doves to Inland Empire families who have lost a loved one, Kosse said. They give them away for free, she said, so families can release them at ceremonies."To be supportive," she said, her voice quivering. By Thursday night, a fundraising page set up by friends, who said they were struggling to "make sense of what makes NO sense," had raised more than $20,000 for the widow and young daughter.— Marisa Gerber.
Isaac Amanios, 60-Injury: Fatal-Gender: Male-Hometown: Fontana-Occupation: Health department employee-Marital status: Married-Children: 3--A family member called Isaac Amanios "an amazing father, brother, an amazing everything."In a brief conversation with a reporter, the woman, who asked not to be named, said Amanios was survived by his wife and three adult children. He worked for the county health department, according to the woman.On Twitter, Nat Berhe, safety for the New York Giants, said Amanios was his cousin and "a great human being.""Just got word that one of my cousins was among the 14 killed yesterday, I'm so sick right now," Berhe said in one Twitter post.Berhe is a San Bernardino native who played football at Colton High School."The true terror is that this keeps happening. I still can't believe it. Take a moment to think of the families hurting right now,"— Ben Poston
Bennetta Betbadal, 46-Courtesy of the family-Injury: Fatal-Gender: Female-Hometown: Rialto-Occupation: Environmental health specialist-Marital status: Married-Children: 3--Bennetta Betbadal fled to America with her family to "escape Islamic extremism and the persecution of Christians that followed Iranian Revolution."She was 18 at the time, according to statement released by her family. Her first stop was New York but she eventually moved to California, where she met and married Arlen Vedehyou, a police officer.Betbadal left her Rialto home Wednesday, eager to deliver a presentation to her colleagues in the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health at their meeting at the Inland Regional Center.She would not return to her husband and their three children, 10, 12 and 15 years old.Betbadal, who earned a chemistry degree from Cal Poly Pomona, worked as a health inspector and also led a team of restaurant inspectors, said Mark Russell, a friend who was acting as a spokesman for the family."It is the ultimate irony that her life would be stolen from her," the family said in their statement, "by what appears to be the same type of extremism that she fled so many years ago."— Matt Hamilton
Harry Bowman, 46-Injury: Fatal-Gender: Male-Hometown: Upland-Children: 2--Nobody was home at Harry Bowman's apartment in Upland on Thursday evening.A package was tucked neatly under the welcome mat on the concrete landing. It had been sent "priority express" by his mother from York, Pa. The postage was $44.95.It was addressed to "Hal."Bowman's name had been released by authorities earlier in the day, along with the 13 other victims of the mass shooting Wednesday in San Bernardino. He was 46.Neighbors said they didn't really know much about him, or anybody else at the Stoneridge Apartment Homes for that matter."There's not a lot of socializing," said Gina Lugo, 54, who lives in the one-bedroom next door with her mother. "People just go to work and come home."She said they had talked only once, when he advised her to call the management about a problem with the hot water.Across the hall, Dr. Guillermo Saenz, a 29-year-old medical resident, said he knew Bowman had at least one daughter."He would come out to the pool and teach her how to swim," he said.Reached by phone in York, Bowman's mother, Marion, said that her son had grown up there and moved to California for work more than 15 years ago.He had two daughters, she said, adding that the family wanted to protect their privacy.The package, she said, contained Christmas presents.— Alan Zarembo
Sierra Clayborn, 27-Injury: Fatal-Gender: Female-Hometown: Moreno Valley-Occupation: Environmental health specialist--Sierra Clayborn, a 2010 graduate of UC Riverside, worked as an environmental health specialist for San Bernardino County."I love hanging out with my friends and I love my blooming career in public and environmental health," she wrote on her Facebook page, where her profile photo still has the red, white and blue filter honoring victims of last month's terrorist attack in Paris. "I am dedicated to enjoying my new life, that God so graciously gave me, so I thank Him… and live life to the fullest. I love my life.""I love you more than you ever knew," her sister Tamishia wrote Thursday morning in a Facebook post. "You were taken too soon. My heart is broken. I am completely devastated."She was energetic, thoughtful and always smiling, said Mary Hale, manager of the Fontana apartment complex where Clayborn had lived for a year and a half."When I think of Sierra, only one word comes to mind: She was a lady," Hale said. "That's not a word I use lightly. She was a super, super lady."Hale told The Times that Clayborn had frequently said how much she loved her job. "She was dedicated to her profession, and she loved the opportunities to meet different people," Hale said.Clayborn shared an apartment with a boyfriend, Hale said.— Laura J. Nelson and Louis Sahagun
Juan Espinoza, 50-Courtesy of family-Injury: Fatal-Gender: Male-Hometown: Highland-Occupation: Health inspector-Marital status: Married-Children: 2--Juan Espinoza worked as an inspector for the county health department, his daughter, Jerusalem, said in a brief telephone interview. He is survived by his wife, a daughter and a son.— Laura J. Nelson
Aurora Godoy, 26-Injury: Fatal-Gender: Female-Hometown: San Jacinto-Occupation: Office assistant-Marital status: Married-Children: 1--Aurora Godoy had a wide smile and an open heart, and at the age of 26, the life she had planned for herself was falling into place.She and her husband, James Godoy, had met in 2003 during a Junior ROTC class at Carson High School, her husband said.They dated for about eight years before eloping in 2012. They bought a home in San Jacinto. She gave birth to their son, Alexander, who will turn 2 in January.Speaking by telephone as his son fussed in the background, James Godoy praised his late wife as a devoted mother."It was all about him," James Godoy said of his son.They did not plan on having more children, he added: "Oh no, one was enough."Over the years, Aurora Godoy had attended various colleges and a culinary school, and she was a few credits shy of completing her associate degree.For about three years, she worked for the San Bernardino County elections office.Since January, she worked as an office assistant in the county's Department of Public Health. She had joined her co-workers on Wednesday for a meeting at the Inland Regional Center.On Thursday afternoon, following a difficult, daylong wait, authorities informed James Godoy of his wife's death.Calls have since flooded in and co-workers have set up a fundraising page. But he said he had not yet processed what happened or how to move forward. No funeral arrangements have been made."Disbelief is the word," he said. "Disbelief."— Matt Hamilton
Shannon Johnson, 45-Injury: Fatal-Gender: Male-Hometown: Los Angeles-Occupation: Environmental health specialist--Shannon Johnson, a resident of Koreatown, rose before dawn to commute to San Bernardino.He worked as an inspector for the county's public health department for a decade, overseeing food safety, recreational health, and housing, according to his LinkedIn page.He was an ideal inspector, according to Susan Wangeman, former general manager at a Baker's Drive-Thru location where Johnson reviewed health conditions."When you see a health inspector, nine times out of 10 you say 'Oh my god,'" Wangeman said. "I never felt like that when he came him.""He was great at his job," she said. "Awesomely great at his job and he seemed like he truly liked it."Wangeman said Johnson regularly dined at the Foothill Boulevard restaurant, where he routinely ordered two burritos, fries and a big Coke.Johnson lived with his girlfriend, "a longtime member" of Mayor Eric Garcetti's crisis response team, a mayoral staff member said in an email."I send my deepest condolences to Shannon's family and all who are grieving loved ones in the aftermath of this senseless tragedy," Garcetti said in a prepared statement.— Laura J. Nelson and Ben Welsh
Larry Daniel Kaufman, 42-Injury: Fatal-Gender: Male-Hometown: Rialto-Occupation: Ran coffee shop at Inland Regional Center--Larry Daniel Kaufman, 42, considered himself a free spirit. He loved horror movies. He often held up the grocery store checkout line because he talked to everyone he met.He refused to get a driver's license, saying he didn't want to give up the daily rides to and from work from his boyfriend of nearly three years, Ryan Reyes. Reyes was the one who dropped him off Wednesday at his job running the coffee shop in Building 3 at the Inland Regional Center, training the developmentally disabled clients who worked there.Throughout the morning the couple traded texts and photos. At 10:37 a.m., Kaufman sent what was to be his final photo — a picture of a friend he had met at a comic book conference.About an hour later, Reyes, 32, received a text from his sister: "Hey Ry does Daniel work at the Regional Center in Sb? Check the news.""Call me ASAP!" he texted Kaufman. He left messages and texted repeatedly. There was no reply. After false information that he had been wounded, Reyes and Kaufman's loved ones waited 22 hours for word. Authorities needed a description to compare to the dead bodies still at the facility.Just under 6 feet tall and around 195 pounds, Reyes said. Black dress shoes with square toes. Khakis. A black polo shirt — the uniform for Coffee N More. No tattoos. Lots of rings and necklaces and one earring on each side — rainbow bars for gay pride.One minute past 24 hours from the last time Reyes heard from Kaufman, his phone rang. The aunt who adopted Kaufman had news: he was gone. — Alan Zarembo

On the job, she screened plenty of mom-and-pop restaurants, and away from work, she made sure to stay in constant touch with aunts, uncles and nearly 30 cousins ranging from age 3 to 41."You cannot imagine how caring she is. She had such a big heart," Emily Nguyen, 16, said of her cousin. "She never said no to us and would give you anything you asked."The extended family united every Sunday for dinner, according to uncle Phu Nguyen. "Tin was a huge part of our gatherings.

"If I could tell people anything from this experience, I'd say: 'Whatever you're planning, don't push it off. Get it done.' "Her mother Vanessa called her daughter "such a good soul.""Only she can understand me — she understood everything I went through," said Vanessa Nguyen, sobbing.Mother and daughter had planned for a wedding at their beloved St. Barbara's Catholic Church, a few miles from their house."She promised that no matter what, she would return to have her wedding there and now we're having a funeral," her mother said.

One key question, said the official, “is if they had any weapons or terror training in Pakistan.”— Richard Serrano-11:27 A.M.“We are now investigating these horrific acts as an act of terrorism."David Bowdich, assistant director of the FBI's Los Angeles field office.10:46 A.M.FBI says it released shooters' apartment back to owner-According to FBI spokeswoman Lourdes Arocho, the FBI had concluded its investigation at the property.“When we finish our searches we release the property back to the owner,” she said.— Richard Winton-10:17 A.M.Sheriff's official says apartment is still an active crime scene-San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputy Olivia Bozek said the apartment that reporters were allowed to enter Friday morning is still under investigation."My understanding is it was an active crime scene," she said.Reporters were allowed by a landlord to enter the apartment of San Bernardino assailants Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik.

Some were shown going through photos and entering closets.The scene had been closed off since the shooting. It was not immediately clear if law enforcement officials had allowed the apartment to be accessed.Los Angeles Times reporter Kate Mather was among the reporters allowed in.In the apartment, there were small black tables in the middle of the main room. On one table was a copy of the Koran.Another table had a lengthy list of dozens of items that the FBI had seized as part of their investigation. The list included Christmas lights, an iPhone, several boxes and bags of various types of ammunition, letters, a passport and gun accessories.— Kate Mather and Stephen Ceasar-9:06 A.M. Farook's sister and brother-in-law express sadness for victims — and shock-The sister of Syed Rizwan Farook told CBS that she was shocked that her brother and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, could be capable of carrying out a mass shooting that would leave so many people dead.Saira Khan condemned the Wednesday attack at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino that killed 14 people and injured 21.“There is so many things I ask myself,” Khan told the TV news station. “I ask myself if I had called him that morning or the night before and asked him how he was doing and what he was up to. If I had any inclination, maybe I could have stopped it.”Khan described the couple as “shy and quiet.”Farhan Khan, a brother-in-law of Farook, told NBC News that Farook was a “bad person” and that the shooting was a "a personal act" unrelated to his faith.— Veronica Rocha and Stephen Ceasar-8:33 A.M.-Sources: Tashfeen Malik pledged allegiance to Islamic State on Facebook-Tashfeen Malik, who joined husband Syed Rizwan Farook in the San Bernardino mass shooting that killed 14 people, pledged allegiance to an Islamic State leader in a Facebook posting, two federal law enforcement officials said Friday.The officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter, cautioned that the new evidence did not mean that the militant group directed Malik and her husband to carry out the attack and that investigators think it instead suggests that the couple had become self-radicalized.Malik, who was born in Pakistan, spent time in Saudi Arabia before becoming engaged to Farook. She gained legal permanent resident status last year after they were married.One of the officials said the post was made under a different name and had since been removed, apparently by Malik herself. FBI technicians were able to recover it. Officials said the posting strongly suggested the attack was premeditated.Another federal law enforcement source told The Times that the suspects made an attempt to destroy electronic devices that they owned, which held data that could have helped investigators.

They were totally frustrated.” Chelsey said investigators are “clueless” about Farook’s motivation.“There was nothing to characterize to make him act in this manner,” Chelsey said.— Veronica Rocha--6:10 A.M.-Tashfeen Malik's K1 visa and what it could mean-Tashfeen Malik arrived in the United States last year with a K1 visa, which is reserved for the fiancés of U.S. citizens, and allows the foreign-citizen fiancé to travel to the U.S. and marry his or her American sponsor within 90 days of arrival. It is one of dozens of visas that allow foreigners to enter the U.S.State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Thursday that K1 applicants, like other visa applicants, undergo an extensive counterterrorism screening that includes checks based on fingerprints and facial-recognition software.The attack has brought new attention to the previously obscure program, with some advocates for stricter immigration enforcement calling for investigations into the nation’s visa screening process, and for the U.S. to halt its Syrian refugee program.If someone has a perfectly clean record and absolutely no evidence of ties to terrorist groups or organizations … how do you detect that all of a sudden they are going to leave their 6-month-old and go put body armor on ...?

Pete Aguilar learned about the tragedy back homeToday, Wire found many of California's Democrats visibly angry over what they feel is a pattern of mass shootings that Congress does nothing about.From the story:One California member of Congress will no longer stand on the House floor to pay tribute to mass shooting victims. The day after the horrific attack in San Bernardino, Rep. Jackie Speier says she'll boycott the congressional chamber or stay seated instead.“I’m not going to stand up for a moment of silence again and then watch us do nothing. It’s hypocritical and it speaks to our impotence that we think that it’s good enough to just take out one minute and pray for the lives,” the Hillsborough Democrat said. “The families of those who have died don’t want our one minute of silence. They want some assurance that this kind of conduct is not going to be sanctioned in this country moving forward.“I’ve had it. I have had it with inaction. I’ve had it with the sense that it’s OK that we not act,” Speier said, pounding her hand against her leg as she spoke.Speier was shot five times while on a congressional fact-finding mission into the People's Temple in Jonestown in 1978.A Republican state lawmaker minced no words responding to Speier's decision on Twitter.— Christina Bellantoni--9:25 P.M. | Killed-Aurora Godoy, 26-Aurora and James Godoy, high school sweethearts, dated for about eight years before eloping in 2012.

Assess your environment before there's any sign of danger.2. Always be vigilant, and trust your gut.3.

Some wiped away tears as they held candles. Others sat with their arms wrapped around each other.There were prayers for peace and praise for the police officers and firefighters who responded to the attack. "SB Strong" flashed on the video board in the outfield.The mood was somber but touched with a defiant optimism. City officials drew applause when they spoke of San Bernardino's resilience."Though we are a bankrupt city, and now we are a terrorized city, we will not be beaten," City Atty. Gary Saenz said.As families left the stadium and headed home, many placed votive candles below two wreaths of red and white flowers that were just outside the stands.People spoke quietly as they walked to their cars, still shocked by the scale of the tragedy.-- Soumya Karlamanga and Kate Mather--LOS ANGELES TIMES
