Ridgewood NJ, The mass murders and shootings in Orlando committed by Omar Mateen has produced many questions as federal and local authorities continue to probe into his background.

But what if he’s the latest in the long line of people who have something in their brains which turns them into murderers? Brain imaging expert and best-selling author Dr. Daniel Amen,founder of the Amen Clinics and his staff have scanned the brains of 90 murderers, searching for answers.

Mateen’s ex-wife, who suffered domestic abuse at the hands of her former husband, has also said he was bi-polar. And as we continue to learn more about the human brain, scans such as what Dr. Amen provides, are being used in court, keeping some criminals in court and others from being executed.

Amen is heavily involved in the discussion about CTE and is the lead researcher on the largest brain imaging and rehabilitation study on professional football players and was a consultant on the movie “Concussion” starring Will Smith.

Orlando gunman had used gay dating app and visited LGBT nightclub on other occasions, witnesses say

Omar Mateen, Terrorist Who Attacked Orlando Gay Club

by Molly Hennessy-Fiske, Jenny Jarvie and Del Quentin Wilbe

The gunman who attacked a Florida LGBT nightclub had attended the club before the attack and had used a gay dating and chat app, witnesses said.

Kevin West, a regular at Pulse nightclub, said Omar Mateen messaged him on and off for a year before the shooting using the gay chat and dating app Jack’d.

But they never met – until early Sunday morning.

West was dropping off a friend at the club when he noticed Mateen – whom he knew by sight but not by name – crossing the street wearing a dark cap and carrying a black cellphone about 1 a.m., an hour before the shooting.

“He walked directly past me. I said, ‘Hey,’ and he turned and said, ‘Hey,’” and nodded his head, West said. “I could tell by the eyes.”

Imam Speaking in Orlando Said Gays Must Be Killed Out of ‘Compassion’

islamic Jihad gay night club

BY PATRICK POOLE JUNE 12, 2016

There is new information on the horrific terror attack in Orlando last night that has killed at least 50 and wounded more than 100 in the largest mass shooting in American history.

Sources are telling the Daily Beast that suspected killer Omar Mateen hadpreviously been investigated by the FBI in 2013 and 2014, making this yet another “known wolf” terror attack:

Omar Mateen of Port Saint Lucie, Florida, came to the attention of federal authorities twice prior to being identified as the gunman in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, a senior law enforcement source told The Daily Beast.

Mateen 53 people and shot more than 100 in total at the Pulse gay nightclub early Sunday morning, in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

The senior law enforcement source reports that Mateen became a person of interest in 2013 and again in 2014. The Federal Bureau of Investigation at one point opened an investigation into Mateen but subsequently closed the case when it produced nothing that appeared to warrant further investigation.

“He’s a known quantity,” the source said. “He’s been on the radar before.”

Mateen was a U.S. citizen; his parents are from Afghanistan, CBS News reports.

Muslim Mass Murderer OMAR MATEEN Had Been Investigated by FBI, tied to Islamic Terror Groups

Omar Mateen, Terrorist Who Attacked Orlando Gay Club

By PAMELA GELLER on June 12, 2016

The jihadi who slaughtered at least 50 at a gay nightclub in Florida last night was known to law enforcement. More of their “Muslim outreach,” I’m sure.

“Omar Mateen, Terrorist Who Attacked Orlando Gay Club, Had Been Investigated by FBI,” Daily Beast:
Mateen was a ‘known quantity’ to federal law enforcement before he killed 53 people in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

Mateen came to the attention of federal authorities twice prior to being identified as the gunman in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, a senior law enforcement source told The Daily Beast.

The source reports that Mateen became a person of interest in 2013 and again in 2014. The Federal Bureau of Investigation at one point opened an investigation of him, but subsequently closed the case when it produced nothing that appeared to warrant further investigation.

“He’s a known quantity,” the source said. “He’s been on the radar before.”

The gunman is said by the source to have been born in New York and to have been married for a time to a woman from New Jersey. His father, Seddique Mateen, appears to reside in Florida, but is said to be presently running for office in Afghanistan.

Seddique told NBC News that the sight of two men kissing angered his son.

“We are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident. We weren’t aware of any action he is taking,” Seddique said. “We are in shock like the whole country.” Seddique added that the attack “has nothing to do with religion.”

His father’s first response is, the massacre “had nothing to do with religion.” The bodies are still warm and the first response of the father of a mass murderer is protect Islam.

And if this has nothing to do with Islam, why is there an imam at the press conference?
