Terrorist That Attacked Orlando Night Club had been Investigated Twice by FBI
Omar Marteen, of Port Saint Lucie, Florida early Sunday morning of June, 12 killed 49 people and shot more than a 100 in total at the Pulse Night Club, Orlando in the worst mass shooting and terror attack since 9/11 in the United States history.
In a press statement FBI Assistant Special Agent Roland Hopper, prior to the incident, Marteen, had come to the attention of the Federal Authorities and had been investigated twice in 2013 and 2014 by the FBI after expressing sympathy for a sympathy for a suicide bomber, Hopper said.
Eye witness, Christopher Hansen said he was getting a drink at the bar about 2 a.m. when he "just saw bodies going down." He heard gunshots, "just one after another after another."
The gunshots went on for so long that the shooting "could have lasted a whole song," he said.
Marteen’s father, Mir Seddique told NBC news that the sight of two men kissing angered his son. The Pulse Night Club is a gay club where it was reported by attendants Marteen was seen occasionally.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation at one point opened an investigation into Mateen, but subsequently closed the case when it produced nothing that appeared to warrant further investigation. He’s a known quantity,” the source said. “He’s been on the radar before.” According to the senior law enforcement officer.
In the past two weeks Mateen legally purchased a Glock pistol and a long gun, ATF Assistant Special Agent in Charge Trevor Velinor told reporters. Although, it is not known if those weapons were used in the attack. "He is not a prohibited person. They can legally walk into a gun dealership and acquire and purchase firearms. He did so. And he did so within the last week or so," Velinor said.
The first law-enforcement source told The Daily Beast there is no immediate indication that Mateen had any direct connection to ISIS. But ISIS recently called on Muslims across the world to attack targets in the West during the holy month of Ramadan, which began last week.
As investigative officers are unable to piece together behavioral trends, associations since his investigation, intelligence gathering begs for alternative solutions. Acquiring critical data in a timely, safe and in a non-invasive manner is key to understanding or piecing together very quickly complex plots, behavioral issues or vindication of alleged suspects. This is where Brain Fingerprinting becomes the most valuable intelligence gathering tool.
WHY BRAIN FINGERPRINTING
Brain Fingerprinting is a highly advanced technology apparatus that offers an objective and knowledge-based means of identification. By analyzing specific brain responses called the P300 and P300 MERMER, the solution safely and non-invasively verifies whether the information contained in the person’s account is present in his/her brain. Inversely, the system can detect the information a suspect would deny knowing terrorist affiliations and behavioral facades.
The capability to detect whether specific information is stored in a person’s brain is unparalleled—no other security solution in the world offers a powerful specific screening solution that is able to efficiently answer to the crisis of terrorism globally. Investigation and background checks are exorbitantly time-consuming, interrogation is most often unreliable, and biometric identification cannot reveal what information the person is harboring.
Investigators now are faced with ever more growing number of lone wolves, therefore access for investigative purposes becomes increasingly difficult. This is a problem with especially high profile suspects. Law enforcement agents need an alternative source of intelligence gathering to collect and analyze critical information. This information could disrupt or foil a terrorist attack or hate crimes before it develops, making it extremely harder for future plots. Brain Fingerprinting is an advanced means of getting intelligence, eliminating number of suspects, highly accurate tool to corroborate/ cross verify assumptions and leads.
