Orlando killer was kicked out of prison guard training nine years ago after ‘talk of bringing a gun to class’

Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen was ‘involuntarily dismissed’ from a corrections officer training program in 2007 after he reportedly talked about bringing a gun to class.

Mateen’s dismissal from the program came after he was in the academy for six months and within days of the tragic Virginia Tech shooting, documents released on Friday revealed.

‘He did not complete his academic program and was not certified as a correctional officer,’ the Florida Department of Corrections told CBS in a statement.

    He should have been kicked out for having one frickin eye 1/2 inch above the other, in classic mutant cousin marrying for centuries screw ups. These guys would get kicked out of Appalatia for gods sake!

    As Mark Steyn commented “we’ve gone from better dead than red, to better dead than rude”.

    So glad the “mo-foe” is dead. Take no prisoners – waste of space. Next ….
    His mosque “community” (imam?) knew something was out of sync with him and his family members the same (where’s his wife now and his brother-in-law has his deed to his house but refuses to cooperate with FBI).

      I’m surprised the new york times hasn’t worked up the angle that bigoted police took their time coming to the rescue of gays…

      He conducted his rampage with all the time in the world. And yet somehow taking ‘high capacity’ magazines out of the equation would have stopped this, because that would have meant he’d have spent maybe an extra 10 seconds total throughout the methodical killing spree to reload. Might have cost him time better spent taking jihadi selfies.

    I’m surprised SeeBS “reported” on this. Just whipping up Islamophobia at this point.
