Co-Worker of Orlando Shooter: Employer Ignored His “Unhinged” Behavior Because He Was Muslim

A co-worker of Omar Mateen said his complaints about his “unhinged and unstable” behavior were ignored by his employer because he was a Muslim.

Florida Today:

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.”

Gilroy said this shooting didn’t come as a surprise to him.

LA Times has more:

“I complained multiple times that he was dangerous, that he didn’t like blacks, women, lesbians and Jews,” Gilroy told The Times on Sunday.

Mateen threatened violence in front of him, Gilroy said. Once when Mateen saw an African American man driving past, he said he wished he could kill all black people, using a racial slur, Gilroy recalled.

“You meet bigots,” Gilroy said, “But he was above and beyond. He was always angry, sweating, just angry at the world.”

If Mateen felt comfortable telling his co-worker his murder fantasies, what did he tell his family?

Mateen reportedly gave his sister his home in Port St. Lucie for just 10$ two months prior to his terrorist attack.
