Does anyone have information on how this madman was able to get off at least 100-150 rounds? Was the weapon converted to full automatic? How many clips was he carrying? How many times did he reload? Why didn't anyone in the club notice his weapon and the large case or bag filled with ammunition? Why did no one return fire?

Old man Phelps was actually heavily involved with the Civil Rights movement, represented a lot of poor blacks that were unjustly accused of crimes when no other attorney would. He did a lot of good stuff and became somewhat of a Democrat party heavyweight, becoming very close friends with Al and Tipper Gore.


At some point in the early 80's, after one of his secretaries sued him, he seemingly lost his marbles, flipped out in court, lost his legal license and it was all pretty much downhill after that.

Pops just said he was mad that Omar purportedly saw two menses kissing in Miami. This is as if to say, mah son's a lion (highly devoted to his "deen" of Islam) and he did right.

This also happened during a very busy night (Saturday night/early Sunday morning).

I suggest the homosexual community be cautious and watchful prior to and during any gay pride events.
I'm going to the TC Pride festival in Minneapolis. I spoke with a representative that told me they're getting cops and FBI agents to ensure the safety of those in the events. I'm not letting radical fundamentalists scare me from expressing myself.

It hasn't been a good weekend for Orlando. It seems all the crazies from other parts of FL have decided to make Orlando their target.
Agreed. I'm still choked up by the killing of Christina Grimmie I wasn't like a huge fan of her, but I DO remember when she was up and coming on YouTube, and she was a very talented young woman and going places. It's heartbreaking, and now this horrifying news at a nightclub. Prayers for Orlando. City's been having a horrible weekend. I was just talking to my cousin who was down there at the parks. Horrible stuff.

Well, I just sent an email to a cop friend of mine to tell him
about a very dark, angry Muslim chef in my town...with
an expired passport and asking my friend to marry him, so he could stay in the country.

Equation: Muslim, very angry guy, no ID, expired passport, looking for an American wife!

Did I do the right thing....yes...investigate this guy!

Send it to the FBI. Do not wait for your cop friend to help....

There are far more ford of mental illness than schizophrenia. And let's be honest, American culture promotes violence as a solution to most problems. And people who go into law enforcement generally are more prone to reacting with physical force than other groups.

We don't need to go and blame every Muslim for this one guys bad deed.
