Years before he slaughtered 49 people at a gay club, Orlando shooter Omar Mateen was threatening to go on a school rampage, according to a former classmate. In fifth grade, the future gunman said that he was going to bring a gun to school and kill the students, fellow Mariposa Elementary alumnus Leslie Hall told TMZ. Hall, who said that she was bullied by Mateen at the Port St. Lucie, Fla., school, told the outlet that he was suspended for two weeks because of the threat.
Hall remembered that “Omar even as a kid had issues and always caused problems in school and hated women.
An anonymous teacher from his school days also told WPEC that Mateen had a tendency towards violence and lashing out while at Mariposa, which he attended from third to fifth grade.
She said that he had been told by his father, Seddique Mateen, that he did not have to listen to women and that school staff did not get support from his father during attempted interventions.

His activation point keeps getting younger and younger.
It must be the parents fault for sure now.
Especially the Father.
It also looks like the CIA and state Department were the father's handlers.

Wow......two weeks, for that sort of threat??? Haven't we seen kids suspended for longer for stupid crap like a pop tart "gun"?? What they heck?!?!?
No counseling, no treatment, just shuffle him on through.
Clearly, protecting this agenda is a bigger priority for some than protecting innocent people.
G4S confirmed in a statement that Omar Mateen had worked for the company since 2007, and said it was “shocked and saddened” by the shooting. A later statement said that Mateen was subject to “detailed company screening” in 2007 and again in 2013, “with no adverse findings.” But one of Mateen’s former coworkers told the New York Times that he “saw it coming,” that Mateen “talked about killing people all the time,” and that he was “always angry, sweating, just angry at the world.” The coworker, who said he quit his job due to harassment from Mateen, explained that he “complained multiple times” to G4S, because Mateen didn’t like “blacks, women, lesbians, and Jews.” Yet G4S continued to employ Mateen, who was able to obtain a “security officer” license to buy firearms in addition to his state license and conceal carry permit. Mateen was even allowed to work at G4S while under FBI investigation. According to the FBI, Mateen was suspected of involvement in terror in 2013. The FBI investigation included the use of paid informants, recording conversations, following him, electronic surveillance, and interviewing him three times, FBI Director James Comey said on Monday. The investigation was closed because it produced no hard evidence of terrorist complicity.
“He told his co-workers that he had family connections to Al Qaeda, that he was a member of a Shia terrorism organization, and that he hoped law enforcement would raid his home and assault his wife so that he could then retaliate and martyr himself.”
Here’s the really bad part: The FBI dropped its inquiry because they apparently believed his terror threats were simply a response to “being marginalized because of his Muslim faith.” Mateen was then removed from the terror watchlist.
the concerns and complaints of vigilant accusers were dismissed as the rantings of anti-Muslim bigots and Omar Mateen was free to go about his deadly business.
That wasn't an investigation; it was a cover up.
