Dramatic footage taken from an officer that responded to the terrible Pulse Nightclub Shooting in 2016. Warning: This video contains graphic content.
On Sunday, June 12, 2016, a man by the name of Omar Mateen made the decision to enter a popular Orlando nightclub, called Pulse, to wreak havoc. In his rampage, he managed to kill 49 innocent people before he himself was brought down by responding officers. Newly obtained body worn camera footage gives a glimpse into that terrible evening, and shows the bravery of the officers who responded with extreme prejudice against the attacker.
This video is difficult to watch, and to some it may be extremely disturbing. This is the kind of havoc that one maniac can induce when he enters a location where people are absolutely barred from being able to defend themselves. Had the responding officers not been fully prepared for this type of scenario, this terrorist may have been able to continue his rampage. Thankfully, the officers were able to respond swiftly and defeat the attacker.
To the individuals who had to experience this terrible fear filled night, know that our thoughts are still with you and your loved ones. We understand what you may be going through even still as you recover from this terrible act of terrorism. We love you, and we see you.
