Wow: Disney Warned FBI About Omar Mateen Back In April

New reports are emerging that Disney warned the FBI about Omar Mateen several months ago. Mateen visited the parks with his wife, who told the media that he was considering attacking Disney Springs.

Mateen also visited the Disney Springs (formerly known as "Downtown Disney") area during Gay Days, a weeklong LGBT festival in Orlando.

Insane. There are thousands of people who visit Disney each day--and Mateen must have been doing something very out of the ordinary to stand out and set off alarm bells and warrant the FBI being notified. That's horrifying.

Further, what are law enforcement agencies doing? Mateen was, by all accounts, a ticking time bomb. How was he not stopped before he was able to buy a gun and go on a rampage?

Disney made a $1 million donation to the OneOrlando fund to assist victims of the attack.
