Posted on 06/12/2016 1:27:08 PM PDT by Zakeet
The ex-wife of the 29-year-old man suspected of killing 50 people in a Orlando nightclub early Sunday said that he was violent and mentally unstable and beat her repeatedly while they were married.
The ex-wife said she met Omar Mateen online about eight years ago and decided to move to Florida and marry him.
At first, the marriage was normal, she said, but then he became abusive.
After the couple split, a friend of Mateen's said the young man became steadily more religious. The friend, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Mateen several years ago went on the pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia known as the umrah.
"He was quite religious," the friend said.
He said Mateen had hoped to become a law enforcement officer but that plan never panned out.

Quite religious Muzzie ... violent ... beat wife repeatedly ... registered Democrat ... mentally unstable!
Not surprised. The hallmarks of a observing Muslim.
Never panned out? I would say he had a very excellent, but brief, career as a law enforcement officer.
She moved to Orlando from where?
He beat her? So what? She opted to where a costume for the rest of her life and submit to her husband under Islamic law.
Why feel sorry for what is expected and accepted as a cultural norm in the Muslim community.
Now if he beat her with a wooden stick bigger than his pinky that could be problematic.
Red Herring - find out how she helped him plan the attack.
Uzbekistan. She met him online. That's what I heard on Fox News this morning.
She sounds Islamophobic to me.
You want to explain that comment?
Closer you get to the demon god at Mecca the more jihadist you become. Truly a religion of peace!
I wonder if he also had a criminal past or was connected to a violent (Marxist or Mohammedan) ideology? /s
Condolences to the ex-wife and families and friends of the innocent victims.
I wonder what feminists will say about this?
my guess is they will say nothing and the liberal Us Media will ask them absolutely nothing.
He is muslim, leftist Democrat.
What should she have expected? That he would treat her with respect?
None of this matters.
The only legitimate angles of this story is how it can be tied to white Christian “homophobia.”
Already ACLU lawyers, through Twitter, have blamed this act of Islamic terror on the “atmosphere” created by anti “gay marriage” Christians.
Sounds like your typical moderate Muslim.
Funny, he doesn’t look religious to me. He looks like a snot nose punk.
You have t wonder why any Western woman would give marrying a muzzie a second though. But then look at how Hitlary appeals to women and you may have an answer. They are, for the mostpart, wired up completely differently than men.
alarm bells, rockets going off, sirens blaring. And yet, after returning to the USA he was given a gun and a job in government services. What have we learned today about the children of naturalized citizens?
with a punch-me face.
