It's not definitive, but an FBI agent said that the suspect may lean towards a radical Islamic ideology.

I am bout 5 miles away- moms looking for their children- it is a gay club but all party- not only gays go party in the clubs--- one girlfriend got away and can't find her boyfriend- the mom just balling her eyes out - ORMC hospital taking them all in a room now to see who is related to who- The dead are 20 inside the club- there were trucks taking injured to the hospital which is 2 blocks away. Others just dragging folks to get help, over 100 rounds can be heard firing- finally killing the stupid AXX joker who killed all these people..

wished these people just commit suicide and leave others alone! Orlando Grieves today..

I am going to say this once. Please use this thread to talk about the tragedy that happened. All posts that diverge to discuss the greater details of Islam, pro/anti 2nd ammendment conversation, pro/anti-homosexuality or any other subject or philosophy meant for other forums will be deleted. You are welcome mention these things within the context of the conversation. If you cannot help yourself and must insert your opinion in a way that it causes this thread to go off topic it will be deleted. This is a moderating post. Do not respond to it, and/or quote it.

Heaven help the innocent.
Sure, it's always tragic and awful to wake up and read news like this. I suspect this was some act of terrorism against the gay community given that it came on pride weekend.

But it's important not to lose the forest for the trees. Crime rates are at their lowest point in 50 years. International violence and war is less frequent than any time in human history. Diseases are way less prevalent than in the past. Cars and planes are 5 and 100 times safer, respectively, than in 1970. Be glad you live today.

The world is not falling apart: The trend lines reveal an increasingly peaceful period in history.

These are human beings who died and families are hurting- other fighting for their lives- they are asking for blood donations, if anyone is in the area. Prayers and positives thought always help, his impacts us all- we need to enjoy our lives in safety.

It is being reported that the FBI is saying "Shooter made terror threats in the past" insinuating that he was on their radar or "watch list".
Start of Ramadan, radical nutcase, large club packed with people who are considered by some as "controversial" or "outside societal norms" sadly became a killing field this morning.

What you believe or feel SHOULD NOT GET YOU KILLED.

From a tactical point of view, this was absolutely a planned attack for maximum killing. Look at the time of day he began the attack. At such an hour many in the club would be intoxicated from drugs and or alcohol. Their reaction time would be greatly reduced thus giving him an opportunity to kill or injure many victims. 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.

That's all I can find out about him. They report his parents are from Afghanistan. Most likely Muslim and under Sharia law, homosexuals are to be killed. Possible motive.
