Orlando Shooter's Security Firm Didn't Take Away His Gun After He Claimed To Have Family Connections To Al Qaeda
More disturbing details are surfacing about Omar Mateen's past.
But apparently, his employer had been alerted to some serious statements he had made about terrorist organizations, and STILL allowed him to carry a gun.
The killer had been working for G4S Secure Solutions USA, Inc. since 2007, and was stationed at St. Lucie County Courthouse in 2013.
FBI Director James Comey had said earlier this week that colleagues claimed Omar boasted of family connections to al Qaeda and Hezbollah, and that he wanted the cops to raid his home "so he could martyr himself."
After those comments, county Sheriff Ken Mascara says officials from the courthouse immediately requested that the Florida resident would be removed from his station at the building.
So, the firm relocated Omar from the courthouse to PGA Village gated retirement community, but a spokesperson told NBC News that he was still allowed to carry a weapon for the job, even though he was now working an "unarmed" post.
How can they possibly call it an unarmed position if he was still armed?!
But that's not the only complaint about him.
