The picture that is emerging of Mateen is not of a person with any religious piety, but of a violent, abusive and deeply troubled man who had spewed racist and homophobic bile for years.
Mateen was licensed to own firearms and worked for the global security and incarceration firm G4S since 2007.
G4S has long been the focus of protests by the Palestine solidarity movement for its role in Israel’s human rights abuses.
