“Chris Callen, who worked at Pulse as a performer, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper he’d seen Mateen dozens of times at the club. According to his estimate, Mateen visited Pulse twice a month over a period of three years. ‘He was very friendly when we said ‘hi.’ He didn’t seem like the kind of guy who just did what he did. It makes no sense.’ Callen said. ‘My partner said that he was very nice [and seemed] comfortable.'”
Speaking to CNN, an unidentified Pulse patron said he saw Mateen try and pick-up men, making casual physical contact and dancing. The reporter said one of Mateen’s colleagues had accompanied the Security agent to a gay bar after work. The FBI reports that Mateen attended some of Disneyland’s Gay Days events prior to the attack.
Mateen was twice married, leaving behind a three-year-old son. Put all this together and it appears that the Pulse killer was either under deep cover to plan his attack, or a closeted bi-sexual wrestling with radical Islam’s homicidal intolerance for homosexuality and, thus, his own nature. Or, in some bizarre way, both.
Not that it matters — especially when compared to the fact that The Pulse customers were unarmed in a “gun free” zone. But there is is.
