Orlando Shooting Attacks LGBT Community

Early morning Sunday, June 12, 2016, a gay night club in Orlando, FL. Pulse was heinously attacked by Omar Mateen, identified by the Orlando police.

The 29-year-old Mateen, born AMERICAN (born in New York), called the 911 himself, proclaiming his “allegiance” to ISIS, currently the world’s most dangerous terrorist group.

There will be a candlelight vigil held tonight, Monday June 13th, at the Philadelphia City Hall at 6:30pm.

According to NPR News, Mateen held-up dozens of hostages in the bathroom of the Pulse gay nightclub.

Orlando Police busted a hole in the bathroom wall, what I will call Mateens personal glory hole. Continue reading “Orlando Shooting Attacks LGBT Community”
