Orlando Mass Killer's Father Speaks Out
Seddique Mateen the father of Omar Mateen who went on a shooting rampage at Orlando gay nightclub (Pulse) in the early hours of Sunday morning, has come forward to talk about his son after reports from the Police that his son pledged allegiance to ISIS. The mass shooting has led to the death of 49 people with 53 critically injured.
According to reports, Omar 29, had visited the club several times before the attack. CNN reports that he had also visited Disney hours before the shooting. We don't know if he visited Disney with his son as a farewell visit or if he was contemplating to carry out his evil plot there.
Seddique said he last saw his son a day before the Orlando nightclub shooting and that he looked normal but he had no clue his son had such dark thoughts in his head. He vehemently agreed his son committed an act of terror and said"I don't know why he did it."
