The state is investigating a false statement by a security company that allowed Orlando massacre shooter Omar Mateen to get a state license to carry firearms as a security guard. G4S, then known as The Wackenhut Corp., in 2007 submitted a signed and notarized character certification form to the state that claimed Mateen had passed a psychological evaluation that found him to be "mentally and emotionally stable." But the psychologist listed on the form says she could never had tested him because she had sold her practice and moved out of Florida by Sept. 6, 2007, the date on which the form claims he passed the test. G4S blames that on a clerical error and said Mateen was tested on that date but by a different psychologist. The company said he passed the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-II, a standard psychological test administered to prospective law enforcement officers.
“He basically was a perfect shot, not quite perfect, but he was an expert marksman,” Murrow said, adding, “He came in. He did his four hours of refresher. That was basically the last time I saw him.” The Sentinel notes that, in addition to Mateen’s outstanding grades on the shooting portion of the exam – 235 or higher out of 240 in four of ten tests – he passed the written portion of the test seven times with a perfect score. Mateen’s exemplary grades on shooting tests suggest years of training.
While Mateen did undergo some corrections officer training and on multiple occasions attempted to enter police training programs, he was either rejected or ultimately expelled from all the programs he attempted to complete

Yup, G4S provided Security for the place where the Dallas shooter died.
Are these ALL coincidences? I know they are a big firm but c'mon.....

OK. This may be a very long shot but when I heard that he worked for a security company something popped up. I remember hearing that the San Bernadino suspects had a friend who 'did security'. There have been security breakdowns in attacks or attempted attacks. I looked it up. I started reading and for some reason the same company kept coming up.
Over and over. I started to look at a few ties that could let someone or some entity have total access to allow certain events to occur. The best thing you can have to plan is HUMINT. I started to look where they are. I started with the latest terror shooting.
They are there...and do private security for government buildings.
They are responsible for security at NASA.
Washington Naval Yard. They, G4S provide private security.
The Orlando shooter. He worked for G4S.
G4S does security in a lot of places so....is this all a coincidence, or, is it not. Now, 4GS is also not an American company. They are based on the UK.
Last one...where else does G4S have security?
Now, where else do they have security? Nuke plants. There have been quite a few attacks in recent years that were buried in the press so is there worry there also.
Just wanted to put this out there to see if anyone else had any thoughts.
What better way to be able to case a future target than to be 'allowed' to be there. I am not implicating the company but stating that it may be being used for bad reasons.
