During a Wednesday speech, Seddique Mateen — father of Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen — threw part of the blame for his son’s deadly attack on the “sloppy security” employed by Pulse nightclub.
“When anyone opens up a business, I’m not aware of the situation of this club, they should have enough security,” Mateen stated.
“They should have enough security when 300 or 400 people come to the business,” he continued. “The lives of 400 people depends on that business, so it’s easy for them to make money, but they don’t want to spend. Maybe they had some kind of sloppy security.” (RELATED: Orlando Terrorists’ Father Supported Afghan Taliban)
Mateen further proposed that “if anyone wants to open up a social club, they should have a tight security 24-hour on guard security.”
“If they had good security, tight security, they would have eliminated my son, and we wouldn’t have had this nightmare and these losses for the families.”
On Sunday, Mateen’s son Omar perpetrated the deadliest terror attack on American soil since 9/11.
His attack in Orlando claimed the lives of 49 victims and hospitalized more than 100 others.
