Orlando Shooter's Employer Says He Was Subject To "Detailed Screening"

Tyler Durden's picture

As we first reported yesterday, one of the big surprises to emerge from the background of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen, was that he was an employee of UK's G4S, the world's largest security company (by revenue), whose corporate logo is "security your world." As we further reporter, a curious observation here is that according to Judicial Watch, the very same G4S had been the company contracted by the US Department of Homeland Security to transport "Other than Mexican" illegal immigrants away from the Mexican border, onward to Phoenix where in many cases they would be released without proper processing or the issuance of court appearance documents.

While G4S's role in facilitating illegal immigration - with the encouragement of the US government - is yet to be probed, overnight G4S released a statement according to which the gunman "was subject to detailed company screening when he was recruited in 2007 and re-screened in 2013 with no adverse findings." This explains why despite his various encounters with the FBI, and potentially with US jihadists, such as the first US-born Syrian suicide bomber, he managed to buy weapons just last week, prompting many to wonder just how ineffective the US gun purchasing background check system may be.

Here is the full statement from G4S:

Omar Mateen was employed by G4S at a residential community in South Florida and was off-duty at the time of the incident. Mateen was subject to detailed company screening when he was recruited in 2007 and re-screened in 2013 with no adverse findings. He was also subject to checks by a U.S. law enforcement agency with no findings reported to G4S.


G4S is providing its full support to all law enforcement authorities in the USA as they conduct their investigations.

Meanwhile, a skeptical market has pushed the stock of G4S plc down 5.5% in UK trading, perhaps anticipating a firestorm of Congressional hearings in which the company will be forced to explain just how this could happen.

The yids just keep mixing lies with half truths with half lies with truths. Eventually the important evidence will disappear and be covered up in all the background noise.

If "detailed" screening missed that he was a wife beater and bipolar, the standard screening must be pretty sloppy.

But hey, close enough for government work.

who screened the other gunman?

To prevent this sort of thing we must limit gun ownership and use to properly vetted law enforcement and security personnel.  Oh wait . . . . Maybe we could just declare the whole country a safe space.

G4S are the same idiots that fucked up royally during the London Olympics in 2012...

"whose corporate logo is "security your world.""

That's a heluva logo.  Chinese-owned company?  Sounds like it's written in Chinglish, like all the stuff you buy from Harbor Freight.

Note that no actual photos/video from inside the bar have been posted/released (same with Paris, no photos/video from inside Bataclan Theater). 

I guess it's because gay people don't carry iphones nor take selfies, right?!  /s

Yes, and the SWAT team locked it down and the Orlando police commish said it would stay that way for "several days". 

Nothing to see, move along sheep....and turn you brain off. Just folllow CNN and Wolf Blitzer in the Situation Room.

They didn't interview his wife/ex-wife?

"who screened the other gunman?"

Likely CIA/Mossad.

The other gunman was an off duty cop, and , apparently a crack shot.  Probably emptied two magazines, some thirty hollow points, without hitting anything: at least, the gunman.

No, it meant he was screened to make sure he was not a WM.

All else is overlooked or forgivable, cause only non-whites are allowed to abuse or beat women.


That's how fucked up our HR systems have become in the US and the West: total self-destruct mode in slow motion. Not by accident either.

Does screening include mind reading?  If not, it's TOTALLY WORTHLESS.  All this company is saying is don't sue us, we followed procedure.


Protect yourself, 'cause nobody else will.  Protect and serve -- that's true but you are NOT IN THE BIG CLUB.

Wat I would like to know is how many people died because of Omars bullet and how many died due to bullets of trigger happy SWAT team members.

Agreed, but the only evidence we need is common sense. Nothing about this bullshit story makes any sense...

Fake Orlando shooting is a psy-op

TY Nati. Very logical.

Expell G4S and any other alien Corp. From any security role in the US.

Expell alien owned media outlets. Equities of broadcast, cable and news should only be owned by US citizens.

Screening... Gee, that was sure helpful.


Anyone who thinks screening is THEE one and only answer is delusional

Was he screened to be sure he would work out as night club shooter?

This guy could work for a company employed by the DHS, but the DHS forces me to buy a certified birth certificate from the state just to renew my drivers license. Security much?

I'd say two FBI investigations into Omar in two years would be a plenty big enough tip off, but there is also his co-worker at the residential facility who is on record having complained to GS4 that Omar was constantly talking about killing people and stalking said co-worker via cell phone and texting, sometimes 100 times per day.
But the clincher: Omar's father thinks he is president of Afghanistan and does internet TV to send messages back home and is a vocal supporter of the Taliban.
(You really can't make this shit up)

All the screenings and they missed the fact that he's a Musloid.

There are no terrorist attacks where the perpetrators are not known to the security services, anywhere

If he had not been Afghani, which gave him plenty of political protection, he would've been fired.


E.g., I know of a guy who was on probation (alleged performance drop), who got terminated when he started surfing online for firearms, while at work. They turfed him the same day. He was white. The HR woman, he says, had a last name that ended in -man.


Given everything I've seen myself, I can't say  surprised. We still have as much discrimination and injustice as ever -- only now it's coming from a Totem Pole, that's been flipped upside down.

oh, ok.  the answer is easy - TIME FOR A GAY PRIDE YEAR!  You see, he totally missed the joy of being gay - not enough gay training and gay parading.  We need to make it mandatory now to attend gay pride parades, gay this and gay that.  The more gay there is, the more inclusive people will be.

NOT ENOUGH GAY - fix that and all the troubles will be gone!

when is the MSM going to start talking about the fact that the cowardly orlando cops waited outside for 3 hours eating doughnuts while Mateen was able to kill many more people inside the club before the cops finally ran out of excuses and had to go inside the nightclub and do their jobs?

And since the MSM won’t do their jobs, then that is where the online blogosphere comes in, right? Chortle…

And the cop that was there initially got schooled by a wannabee.   Well maybe the cop was a wannabe too.

I credit him, the cop, with upto 30 friendly fire kias/wounded.

DHS is the worst agency to work for. management is filled with "retired" LEOs who couldn't find anything else to do.

Hey Roger, any agency is a bad agency to work for.

muslim nutcase hater forced police officer to quit via harrasment. nothing done.  talked constantly about his desire to kill gays.  calls 911 to claim isis affiliation during his gun-free-zone crime.  his parents and ex knew him well.  FBI interviewed him 3 times.  obama refuses to say islamic fundamentalism, wahabiism or islamic terrorism and seeks to generalize the inherent hate and prejudice of islam against ALL KAFIRS..that means YOU!

Pigeon's picture

I stated this early yesterdayin a post. OF COURSE THEY KNEW ALL THIS STUFF ABOUT HIM. THEY DIDN'T CARE. Because ...you know..."racism". The guy was NOT subjected to what a white guy would have been because this asshole was MUSLIM. It was a political decision pure and simple. Nothing this or anything affiliated with it does, is done with the country's or the citizens' best interests in mind. NOTHING.

Pigeon's picture

It's all about identity politics - and dividing the electorate and stirring hate and division among the people so that our anger and blame is turned against one another - rather than at what it rightfully belongs - against the govt, its handmaidens and cronies.

conscious being's picture

Naive. Dig deeper. Here's something to ponder. Why was global security firm G4S so incompetent? Why was the FBI so incompetent? Maybe the FBI doesn't work for truth, justice and the American way?

LA_Goldbug's picture

"global security firm G4S"

I find this amazing as hell. Putting these guys in a school bus and moving requires a specialty firm. Things are totally Ka-Ka in the US.

conscious being's picture

Indeed, a specialty firm with Israeli connections.

Detailed screening?

I certainly could not dream this stuff up for a picture. I don't think Philip K Dick could have come up with this shit. And I suspect we are beginning a long journey of new revelations.

Transporting and releasing illegals for DHS. What the fuck is that?

Detailed screening:

 ) Is you a terrorist?

 ) Is you not a terrorist?
