    Seriously, why has no one discussed this yet in the News?

    https://theintercept.com/2016/06/14...t-murderer-employed-by-global-mercenary-firm/

    "
    But one of Mateen’s former coworkers told the New York Times that he “saw it coming,” that Mateen “talked about killing people all the time,” and that he was “always angry, sweating, just angry at the world.”

    The coworker, who said he quit his job due to harassment from Mateen, explained that he “complained multiple times” to G4S, because Mateen didn’t like “blacks, women, lesbians, and Jews.”

    These are the firms such as Xe/Academa/Blackwater that we pay for to claim we don't have troops in locations. Their employees get advanced training in weapons use (obviously an important detail in this incident) and these types of firms have a tendency of hiring the worst of the worst in hyper-masculine types.

    Any thoughts?

    Like San Bernardino, people are reluctant to report Muslims because they'll be instantly labeled racist. If they do, the government bureaucracy won't act because racism.

    No, your synopsis was very good. And I'm on a phone.

    Please read it, this thread isn't about the shooting event, it's about the mercenary firm G4S whom hired the shooter.

    Whenever you can, I'm not going to demand from the internet that you get off your phone :p

    He was a security guard/corrections officer. Far from a mercenary.

    Has law enforcement confirmed he had a CCW permit? I saw the publicly available G & D security licenses issued by the state.

    He's watching hockey fights on YouTube.

    Please read the full article. This company, on our and other western country's dime, has had employees commit multiple depraved violent acts and killings all over the world. THAT is the point of this thread.

    Okay...

    I did read the article. Same hippie garbage written about every contractor firm that has ever existed.

    Blackwater/Xe attracts some knuckle-dragging losers and they're pretty much universally despised by green suiters.

    I'm sorry to detract from the larger, serious issue - but, who exactly eats chips and takes shots out of peoples butt-cracks on purpose? WTF?

    Bros. The hyper masculine homoeroticism seems to be common in "bro" culture.

    What you describe is in the eye of the beholder.

    It's a dirty business to begin with. That kind of talent pool comes with assorted personalities.

    "Assorted" or "sordid"?

    Or "assorted" presuming some are purportedly "sordid"? :D
