Suspicious of men around shooter’s house for weeks, guy afraid he’d be called racist so he didn’t report

He didn’t want the police to think he was a racist.

A man who has been working in the neighborhood of the suspected killers in Wednesday’s San Bernardino mass shooting told  CBS News Los Angeles anonymously that he and his co- workers noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area of the residence, but they kept it to themselves because they didn’t want to be accused of racially profiling the individuals.

“We sat around lunch thinking, ‘What were they doing around the neighborhood?’” he told the station.  “We’d see them leave where they’re raiding the apartment.”

He added that the activity went on every other day for about three weeks.

The apartment was the Redland, California home of Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and his Saudi-born wife of two years, Tashfeen Malik, 27, who were suspected of methodically killing 14 and injuring an additional 17 people enjoying a Christmas party at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino.

Now, thanks to this man’s statement, we know that there may be as many as an additional six people who played some role in the massacre — and the chances of finding them are slim to none.

And they’re probably still in the country, possibly planning another attack.

Profiling your neighbors is a slippery slope and police could not have acted on a “suspicion”  but we hear it every day that political correctness will be the death of us. Wednesday’s attack is proof.
