NBC– The Orlando gunman’s wife has told federal agents she tried to talk her husband out of carrying out the attack, NBC News has learned.
Omar Mateen’s wife, Noor Zahi Salman, told the FBI she was with him when he bought ammunition and a holster, several officials familiar with the case said. She told the FBI that she once drove him to the gay nightclub, Pulse, because he wanted to scope it out.
Mateen opened fire at Pulse early Sunday, leaving 49 dead and 53 injured. Twenty-seven victims remained hospitalized Tuesday. Six were in critical condition, according to hospital officials who said the death toll was still at risk of rising because one or two of those patients were “profoundly ill.”
Authorities are considering filing criminal charges against Noor for failing to tell them what she knew before the brutal attack, law enforcement officials say, but no decision has been made.
CONSIDERING? Why are they only “considering” pressing charges? She knew he was deranged, She knew he bought weapons, she drove him to purchase ammo and holsters, yet the FBI is only considering filing charges.
This stupidity is the reason this attack happened. The FBI had questioned the terrorist multiple times yet they did nothing. His ex-wife is clearly an accessory at the least, but she is still not behind bars.
Like the NRA said, political correctness is the reason the attack wasn’t stopped ahead of time. Now it seems that political correctness is what’s keeping this woman out of jail.
But hey, at least she allegedly tried to convince him not to do it. That’s got to count for something. Right?
