  • Who was Omar Mateen?

    This thread is intended to explore who this low life was. What we know now and what we will learn about him in the future.



    On 9/11, Omar Mateen’s classmates mourned. Some say he celebrated.

    At a high school in Florida, students watched the horrors of Sept. 11, 2001, unfold on live TV. When the second hijacked airliner slammed into the World Trade Center’s south tower, the class watched in stunned disbelief. But one student, a classmate recalled, “started jumping up-and-down cheering on the terrorist.”

    That was sophomore Omar Mateen, according to one of the accounts from Martin County High School remembering 9/11 and the reaction by the student who, nearly 15 years later, would carry out the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

    The recollections of Mateen’s actions could not be independently verified, and the memories could be clouded by the years that have passed. But they appear to offer yet another stitch in the wider tapestry of Mateen’s life and views before Sunday’s rampage, which included his pledge of loyalty to the Islamic State during a call to police during the standoff .

    In an interview, Robert Zirkle, then a freshman at the Martin County school, said he saw Mateen excited and making fun of how America was being attacked on 9/11. “He was making plane noises on the bus, acting like he was running into a building,” Zirkle recalled. “I don’t really know if he was doing it because he was being taught some of that stuff at home or just doing it for attention because he didn’t have a lot of friends.”

    ORLANDO -- His ex-wife said he was unstable and beat her. His father said he spoke openly of his disgust for gay people. A co-worker recalled him as a virulent racist.

    Those who knew Omar Mateen, the 29-year-old Florida security guard who carried out the worst mass shooting in American history, described him Sunday as an angry and disagreeable person. But the roots of his rage -- and much else about his assault on a gay nightclub in Orlando -- remained unclear.

    Was the killing of 50 motivated by the homophobia Mateen spewed to his family and co-workers? Or by the allegiance to Islamic State that he professed to a 911 operator the night of the attack? Or by a mental unraveling that drove his wife away after four months of marriage?

    And what lay behind his choice of a target: a Latin dance party at a club 130 miles from his home?

                    I heard on the radio today that he had been seen at the LGBT club before and that he had several posts on some LGBT dating sites. Was he a closet gay or doing recon work? I don't know

                      A registered Democrat. Pretty much says it all.
                      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                        You think he was looking for a gay goat?

                          I respectfully ask you to keep this thread centered on who the perpetrator was. I don't want this to devolve into a political argument or a pro gun anti gun rant. We have plenty of those...
                          There will be a lot of information released in the future about this guy. I hope to make this thread available for a clearing house for that information
                          Thanks for understanding and your support.

                            I also saw that, and I saw one clip from a drag queen who said he had dated the guy.

                              That doesn't connect Trump or the NRA to Omar Manteen.
