Co-worker: Omar Mateen homophobic, 'unhinged'

Via Billy

A former Fort Pierce police officer who once worked with 29-year-old Omar Mateen, the assailant in an Orlando nightclub shooting that left at least 50 dead, said he was "unhinged and unstable."

Daniel Gilroy said he worked the 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. shift with G4S Security at the south gate at PGA Village for several months in 2014-15. Mateen took over from him for a 3 to 11 p.m. shift.

Gilroy, a former Fort Pierce police officer, said Mateen frequently made homophobic and racial comments. Gilroy said he complained to his employer several times but it did nothing because he was Muslim. Gilroy quit after he said Mateen began stalking him via multiple text messages — 20 or 30 a day. He also sent Gilroy 13 to 15 phone messages a day, he said.

"I quit because everything he said was toxic," Gilroy said Sunday, "and the company wouldn't do anything. This guy was unhinged and unstable. He talked of killing people."


  1. I didn't want change. I was happy with the way I grew up.
    According to the FBI, Mateen had help. The guy who held
    the door shut so others could not get out. WTH A woman
    who escaped finds the police standing outside and tells them
    to get inside, people are being shot, "why are you standing
    outside." Police scanner has three hrs. of missing info
    starting at 3 a.m. - response was it was a technical glitch.

    1. Thanks and do you have a link/links?

    2. Here is some info. Have to still find the article
      on the scanner:
      Heard a lot of info on Fox -Megan. A Latino
      woman on Megan talked about the cops standing
      outside. Very upset.

    3. Thanks.
