UPDATE: I just heard a reporter on MSNBC telling a story related to him by a victim’s father. He said he was wounded, shot in the leg, fell on the ground and got trampled. Said his kid saw a report on TV which showed a picture of the alleged shooter and he claimed he saw him that night at the bar drinking. So this guy who hates gays is at the bar, wearing a vest and carrying an AR-15 and drinking at the bar with gays? What?
UPDATE: Suspect, Omar Mateen, worked for private global security company, G4S for the past 9 years or so. You mean to tell me this guy who liked to wear NYPD shirts, who’s father was a wannabe big wig in Afghanistan and who worked for one of the largest for-profit security companies in the world, just “went off” and decided to kill gay people because he saw a couple kissing a few months back and then dedicated himself to “ISIS”? Is that really the fucking story? Really?
Oh wait… he had been investigated by the FBI twice since 2013 for supposedly making “terrorist sounding threats”… and yet he was still working for G4S? bullshit
UPDATE: According to the official story, the suspect called the cops during the standoff and “pledged allegiance to “ISIS™” They said that phone call happened about 20 minutes into the standoff so that would have been around 2:30am. The chief of police held a news conference this morning at 10am and he was asked about whether or not it was terrorism related and he said they had no evidence that it was. WTF was that?
You’re not going to believe this.
Apparently after barely escaping the Pulse nightclub with their lives, all the victims decided to walk back down the street, in front so some dude with a camera, right past the still ongoing hostage situation.
What? No. That didn’t happen. The police would have prevented anyone from doing anything that stupid.
Well, apparently not.
A reader sent me a little insight via email, so I looked it up and there they were, walking down the street, right back toward the Pulse nightclub across the street, right through a hostage standoff scene. And just one group (the one with that guy in the stupid hat who did all those TV interviews) but in fact, several groups of “injured” people. There they are, walking right back through the police standoff scene.
All these guys survived the attack at the club only to get away, down the street a little ways, and they walk back, in a neat little well timed convoy of dramatic scene groups, right back in front of the location where cops just had a shootout with the bad guy.
As you can tell from the darkness, the cops had yet to break in and clear the guy out and even if they had by then, they would still have the area locked down.
To give you an idea of how close these people are to the scene, here’s a Google Street View of the location. They were right across the street.
As you can see, they were set up right across the street from where the shootout was taking place inside the club.
The cops would NEVER have let wounded civilians, or civilians of any kind, just walk across the street from an active hostage scene where there was just a massive shootout in the parking lot. That’s ridiculous.
