Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen is not the first employee of British security giant G4S to go on a rampage. Sunday morning’s attack in Florida has raised questions over the quality of vetting procedures among the firm’s recruits. The Orlando killer is believed to be 29-year-old Omar Mateen, an Afghan-American G4S security guard. The killing spree, carried out with apparently legally acquired automatic rifles, claimed the lives of 49 partygoers and injured 53 according to the latest figures. The gunman was also killed. Mateen is reported to have been shot dead after police stormed the club in a bid to rescue 30 hostages being held there. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has since claimed responsibility for the attacks, though Mateen’s connection with the terror group is not yet clear. The British firm is one of the world’s biggest military and security providers. It employs more than half a million people – many of them ex-military – in 110 countries including conflict zones like Iraq and Afghanistan. It has been rocked by repeated controversy. The firm’s shares plunged to a seven year low in the wake of its admission that Mateen was an employee, losing £200 million. Orlando may be the worst atrocity attributed to a G4S employee, but it is not the first. In 2009 former paratrooper Danny Fitzsimons – an employee of Armour Group, a division of G4S – was convicted of killing two colleagues and sentenced to life in prison. According to human rights NGO Reprieve, Fitzsimons was employed by the mercenary firm despite having been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in May 2008 – the same month G4S took over Armour Group. He is thought to have developed the condition after exposure to a number of brutal events as a combatant in Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq. Some 36 hours after arriving in Baghdad as a mercenary in 2009, Fitzsimmons killed fellow security operators Paul McGuigan and Darren Hoare following what was reported to have been a drunken brawl. Looks like G4S has a problem of hiring horrible people and doing proper vetting of employees in the past. The mainstream news is stating Mateen bought his guns legally, but I bet anything his guns he killed with came from this mercenary security firm. Why I say this is because G4S is armed security, which has guards patrolling the streets of our military communities in America. So if you have this security patrol where you live by G4S, guess what you have mercenary contractors making sure your communities are safe. America and other places in the world possibly have a security firm with radical Islamic followers behind the wheel.
