New Photos of Pulse Attack
New photos of the Pulse massacre were just released. There are over 400 altogether that show more details of this horrible tragedy. The photos of the back of the building are chilling.
Mateen’s stand-off with authorities came to an end after they rammed the back wall of the building and made holes big enough for officers to enter. At this point, Mateen came out and was gunned down.
The One Orlando Fund, set up to help survivors and the families of victims since the tragedy, has raised just short of $30million.
More On Wife of Orlando Killer
Here’s another follow up that talks about why the wife of the Orlando killer, Noor Salman, was arrested.
Noor Salman, 30, was taken into custody by the FBI on Monday (16 January) and has been charged with with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization and obstruction of justice, the BBC reports.
‘She knew he was going to conduct the attack,’ federal prosecutor Roger Handberg said in court.

Gay Teen and Deportation…Because Sweden Doesn’t Think He’s Gay
This one is a little confusing. There’s a gay teen in Sweden who might be forced to go back to Nigeria because Sweden doesn’t believe he’s gay. How did they come to this conclusion? They claim it’s because he didn’t talk about feelings in enough detail. From the way it sounds, a good deal of the confusion resulted through interpretation…and a bad interpreter.
I see ridiculous stories on Twitter all the time that claim to be “riveting,” but this one really is about as riveting as it gets…
After two and a half years, Kaodimuo fled back to Nigeria, together with his boyfriend.
A neighbor back home caught the couple having sex and alerted others, quickly gathering a mob.
They beat Kaodimuo’s boyfriend; unable to flee, the young man died.
Kaodiumo fled and spent a few nights on the street, until a relative gave him money to buy a passport and a plane ticket to Sweden.
You can read more here, and there’s a photo of him. I hope there’s a follow up to this one.
