FLORIDA: Federal Court Revokes Bond For Wife Of Pulse Massacre Killer, She’s Now Remanded Until Trial

Courthouse News Service reports:

The widow of the gunman who killed 49 people in an Orlando nightclub last June will remain behind bars while she awaits trial in Florida, according to a court order. Although a California magistrate judge earlier this month authorized Noor Salman’s release from an Alameda County jail on a $500,000 bond, a federal judge in Florida revoked the release on Friday and ordered Salman to remain in custody until she is tried in an Orlando courtroom.

U.S. District Judge Paul Byron of the Middle District of Florida said in a 29-page order that Salman is too dangerous to be released and could flee to her mother’s empty apartment in Palestine if she is freed. “Defendant Salman is charged with aiding and abetting a horrific terror attack,” Byron wrote. “The existence of the defendant’s past involvement in a terrorist attack, even recognizing she did not pull the trigger, poses too great of a danger to the community to warrant pretrial release.”

The Justice Department charged Salman in January with helping her husband Omar Mateen carry out a terror attack on the Pulse nightclub in the early hours of June 12, 2016, then later lying to the FBI in the ensuing investigation.

According to the FBI, Salman has admitted to making three trips to Downtown Disney and local Orlando nightclubs to case the best location for the attack. Despite that, Salman claims that the Father’s Day card she bought for her husband proves she had no idea that he was planning anything. Last year Father’s Day fell one week after the attack.

These voters are the sort who think that they should be able to live the high life without having to think for themselves, work more than 40 hours a week, stay current in whatever field they work in even if it means spending 5 hours a week going to night school and doing the assigned exercises, or otherwise exert themselves.

        Well, when one regular poster here, a libertarian among us posts that he believes the Matthew Shepard conspiracy theory that he was not gay bashed, but believes the debunked claim that he was killed over drugs, we have issues.

      OMG. People are so incredibly sick and twisted. I don’t understand why anyone would claim this (or the Sandy Hook shooting or any other massacre) were hoaxes.

      • AJ Drew

        In my better moments, I want to believe that the “false flag” theories are from folks who just can not believe others could be so evil. Upon waking, I still believe that might be true for a few. Folks who go to such lengths as to make and post a video about it, though…

        • Christian1234567

          I honestly don’t get it. I can’t wrap my head around why anyone would think like this.

        • JustDucky

          I wonder if there’s some element of guilt to it. When they oppose gun control, they’re saying “my toy is so important that I’m opposed to any attempts to keep you from getting murdered.” When the victims are so young, that almost has to feel a little bit gross. It’s probably easier in some ways to just deny that there were any victims.

        • I get that. There’s a dissonance sometimes between what happened and what seems likely/possible otherwise. I feel that way about 9/11. I used to work downtown. It can’t have happened and yet it did. But… Yeah, so I get how it can be hard to accept a reality that doesn’t seem right. (Note: I watched it on tv and had to go around Ground Zero to get to work after we were allowed back down there but….ugh anyway.)

          But no, what most false flag things are about is intentionally discounting anything that causes them to admit that bad tihngs happen to people they don’t like anyway. Orlando victims were gays and their friends (and in one case a mom). They can’t have gay people seem sympathetic. We might want rights! heaven forbid! So they discount the whole thing. And Sandy Hook. Well that’s a good reason why we might limit some people from buying certain kinds of guns so that must be fake too. It’s lunacy like all conspiracy theory crap.

      • Ben in Oakland

        Because they have guns for brains and concrete for hearts and dried fish for souls.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        It’s because they love their metal penises. They’re afraid ANY admission/proof that unfettered access to guns can cause problems will increase gun control. They are so selfish that they’ll scream “LIes! Lies!” to people getting killed rather than have to give up their beliefs. I suspect a lot of the people behind this are part of the NRA.

        • And because their paranoia is being fed by gun manufacturers who make profits from them going out and buying more and more guns. Obama is going to take away your guns, which never happened btw, was just a way to sell more weapons and ammo. It was a lucrative scam. Who cares if anyone gets hurt.

      • Natty Enquirer

        For the usual reasons: money and notoriety. People believe them because they would like to think they are smarter than everyone else and in so doing, prove that they are vain idiots.

      • Daveed_WOW

        That’s how deep their hatred of minorities goes. They make up things because they can’t deal with minorities, women and less fortunate people being victims due to the system of America.

      • Christopher

      The USA is exceptional among the liberal western democracies:
      – you have a large proportion of your politicians that are overtly religious, and base their policies on such;
      – you have people carrying guns as a norm;
      – you have a health system that is aggressive towards poorer people.

      You are exceptional, but not in a good way: there is primitivism, fronteerism, gungho Christainism, behaviour and views little different from central Africa or the ME. In the UK, your ethos appears uncouth.

      Believe me, I say this in sorrow, but you are not part of the society we live in, in which I include Canada, Oz, and NZ, as well as UK,NL, France, etc

      • David Walker

        Understood. Worse, I don’t see things changing for the better, changing to (at the very least) civility, changing to if not accepting differences at least understanding that people are different and that doesn’t make them bad. And I’m as bad as most in the US; I may be coming at it from the left, rather than the right, but the right has told us to go fuck ourselves, The Truly Religious have told us to go fuck ourselves, conservative TV hosts have told us to go fuck ourselves, former friends are former because they told us to go fuck ourselves. We’re not coming together anytime soon, we will be the laughingstock of the entire world, and some of us will try to explain that, like certain christians have tried to say, “we’re not all like that.” I wish Germany or the Netherlands or whatever country assumes the mantle of “leader of the free world” the best of luck. There are countries and leaders who can do it. We sure as hell can’t.

      Thirty-five survivors would check into Orlando Regional Medical Center and Florida Hospital as a result, and the damage done was extensive. Doctors would perform 76 different surgeries on the shooting victims.

      Two days following the horrific attack, six victims remained in critical condition, but all of those patients survived their numerous procedures.

        It was a rebellious time across the northern border.

        The Rebellions of 1837 (French: ‘Les rébellions de 1837′) were two armed uprisings that took place in Lower and Upper Canada in 1837 and 1838. Both rebellions were motivated by frustrations with political reform. A key shared goal was responsible government, which was eventually achieved in the incidents’ aftermath.

      • Friday

        Frankly, their paranoia about ‘white people’ being bred out somehow just hasn’t held up in reality when people *can* intermarry: apparently, statistically, a good majority of people just tend to pick mates that look similar, but not too similar, to their own relatives, on top of all the lingering segregation in this country. (I don’t know if this actually applies to queer folks, but so they say.)

        • The whole idea of separate races is based on very bad and incredibly racist 19th century pseudoscience. The genome project results should have debunked all that but alas no. In short you are just as likely to share similar genomes with someone with ancestors from around the world than from the next village over. That is if you consider things besides pigmentation and eye and hair color. Most of us do.

          Yes, a lot of people do pair off with people who are similar to them. But some find those similarities in things other than the most superficial aspects of their appearance. I’m not trashing people for their preferences in that regard. Whatever turns your crank! But this fear among some white people that we’re going to lose our “purity” because some people intermarry…most of us aren’t as “pure” as we think anyway.

          • Friday

            Well, that’s why I put ‘white people’ in the little quotes, actually. (And the pseudoscience was intended to rationalize ‘Biblical’ prejudices among others in the first place. Few of *my* ancestors were considered ‘White’ till maybe around the turn of the previous century to begin with. ) I was just addressing the weird paranoia that somehow failure to punish people over violations of their ideas of ‘purity’ even means they actually even *do* to the extent they fear, like everyone’ll end up the same shade of brown or anything, (which is a stupid thing to think is worthy of keeping people up nights in the first place,) …I was pointing out that in reality, most people don’t even, without any need for various hatreds or whatever.

            It’s just another proven mirage, like the idea that if they don’t persecute LGBT people enough ‘everyone will turn gay and there’ll be no more babies.’ Obviously that doesn’t happen in the first place. 🙂

  • Treant

    OT: Has anybody ever had sinus issues up to and including surgery?

    Long story short, what with the colonoscopy and EGD, I’ve paid my entire deductible for the year, and currently have the time to deal with it. I’ve had blocked sinuses and a sinus headache for about 35 years now, so…

    I’ve also spent good chunks of time with a dependency on Afrin (much like Kaley Cuoco and for the same reasons), just admixed down to a 5% solution (95% Alkalol and distilled water). It’s about the only thing that keeps me reasonably clear and reasonably pain-free. Most of the time.

    But I’ve gotten very tired of waking up with my sinuses completely caked shut, and still with a headache about a quarter of the time…

    • safari

      Let me know how that goes.

      • Treant

        You too?

        • safari

          I’ve only had sinus problems for about ten years, but even when I’m vigilant I can’t clear them fully… and if I do they are so inflamed that it hurts.

          • Treant

            Exactly. After reading about Kaley Cuoco’s experience–a smashing success–and doing some research, it’s time to look into it. They do great things today with endoscopic procedures and lasers, so no more black eyes, scarring, and Phantom of the Opera bandages.

          • BTW, I’ve had good luck with Flonase rather than Afrin or similar.

          • Treant

            Alas, Flonase…I might as well be shooting tap water up there, at least there might be amoebas in there that will kill me and just get it over with. 🙂

          • EweTaw

            My neti pot. One of the best things I’ve ever bought for myself. Warm distilled water poured through each nostril until everything is flushed out is such a great feeling.

          • I do the same thing. It’s just that neti alone during allergy season isn’t enough.

            I tried those Neil Med squeeze bottles, too. Just too much water all at once, sometimes feels like it’s pushing gunk higher, which is definitely what I don’t want.

    • Yes. Surgery a long while back to correct a deviated septum. Later on, additional surgery to deal with blood vessel problems which led to excessive nose bleeds (like massive sometimes).

      Really not a good idea to remain dependent on those acid-based nose sprays long-term. If you have the financial and insurance means to deal with your issues this year, it’d probably be a good idea.

    • JWC

      Have you tried a sea salt spray before bed time? I use something called Neal Med. Another tip after I quit smoking(35 years ago) I had major sinus problems Apparently the nicotine produced its own antihistimines meaning my natural system ceased to function It took 6 months to recify I mention this only as a thought could your meds be doing the same ? Check it out It won’t be an overnight but I offer my story

      • fuzzybits

        My surgeon gave me the neil med bottle and saline packets after my surgery. I still use it. The hubby bought me a puremist for xmas but I’m not too sure about it.

        • JWC

          I have found that natural remidies are better in the fact that there are less side effects than chemicals

    • Natty Enquirer

      Cold air and dust mite dung make my nasal passages swell at night, often painfully. I take Claritin before bed to reduce the allergic response. If I wake up with an ache, I take three Advil. Maybe once a week I use a spray decongestant when it gets really bad. So far I have been able to live with this regimen.

      • EweTaw

        I want one of those machines the doctor uses to suck out the sinuses. It’s like getting your teeth cleaned. Everything is soooooo much better afterwards. 🙂

      • Tomcat

        See a sleep doctor for a cpap machine. The air is filtered, clean and moist it you have one with water tank. I now cannot sleep without it filtering my air since I have dogs and have developed allergies to dog dander and dog hair.

    • Beagle

      I had surgery last year for a deviated septum and too-narrow sinus passages. The surgeon put a metal splint in each nostril, which (along with being unable to blow my nose) meant I had to breathe through my mouth for a couple days. Once the splints were out, it was so much easier to breathe. There were a couple of follow-up appointments where surgeon had to clear blood clots from my nostrils, which was uncomfortable but manageable. For a few weeks, I also had to rinse out my sinuses with distilled water (made slightly saline). It’s weird, feeling the water running through your sinuses.

      But I can breathe so much more easily. For me, it was definitely worth it.

          • Treant

            So how bad was the post-surgical pain?

          • fuzzybits

            Not really that bad. I think they gave me pain meds for the first couple of days. The worse part was the horror show you blow out for the first week or so.

          • Treant

            That I don’t care about. I had polyps removed, so I have experience with that from the other end. 🙂

          • fuzzybits

            Well I had polyps removed from the nose.

          • EweTaw

            You have my greatest and deepest sympathy. My ex had sinus polyps removed. It too four separate surgeries. He was miserable for months and on the verge of killing himself. But once it was over he was a much happier camper.

          • fuzzybits

            It was during the septoplasty surgery that it was done. They also had to take some of the turbinates out. I was in surgery nearly three hours.

          • EweTaw

            1I throw even more sympathy and respect at you. Three hours? Ugh.

          • EweTaw

            I found the pain was mostly mental. You have to breathe through your mouth for 2 – 3 weeks. Then the process of removing the splints holding the septum in place being yanked out was more than a bit surprising. It was like two shoe horns the ENT had snuck up there and stitched into the gristle. After that, a thorough vacuuming of all the agar used as packing to keep everything from slipping.

            If you are having a deviated septum straightened and insurance is paying for it ask the ENT about a nose job while he’s at it. A deviated septum is usually caused by an injury (basketball slammed to the nose, etc.) and if you have a honker you’ve always wanted to have made less prominent, you most likely qualify for having your insurance pay for it. Many ENTs also do rhinoplasty.

            However, the mortality rate for sinus surgery is higher than many other surgeries. It depends upon how skilled the ENT is. The more experienced the better, of course. But secondary infections leading to sepsis, temporary blindness, and a few other potential complications might outweigh any potential benefits.

          • fuzzybits

            I wished I would’ve talked about rhinoplasty while I was having my septum surgery. I guess I’ll live with my honker.

          • EweTaw

            I had a prominent bump which I was born with. So I pretty much insisted on having my nose whittle down and straightened while having the septoplasty. I asked everyone, all relatives and friends and strangers, everybody if they thought I should have my nosed fixed. Everyone said, “No, your nose has such ‘character'” Yeah, right. So I was even more determined to have it done. I have never regretted it.

          • Treant

            I rather like my nose, so I’m cool with that!

          • fuzzybits

            Be careful if you have to have turbinate reduction done too. They removed some of my turbinates also.Make sure your Dr. won’t remove them all. It can lead to a condition called dry nose. Look it up.

          • my migraines and seasonal/weather related head ache problems mostly went away when i had all four wisdom teeth removed. trigeminal nerve cluster, etc. i’m so glad, as before that happened, i would get Serious head pain, weekly.

          • Robincho

            It’s fun to take your last two sentences out of meteorological context…

          • Treant

            Not this evening. I am, as always, up for just about anything but he’s not feeling well. I’ll just do a waistband tuck and wait until tomorrow evening.

        • I don’t get headaches but they keep me from sleeping. I slept not one wink last night. Ugh.

      • fuzzybits

        Feel better.

      • MaryJOGrady

        I hope your headache vanishes soon.
        I too am tired of barometric head pain.

        • Treant

          A bit of a nap and I’m feeling much better! I can still tell that something’s coming (and it’s huge), but at least my head isn’t pounding any longer.

  • this one is a little bit hard for me, bc the person responsible is not the one being punished. she’s involved, but she’s not the one who pulled the trigger and shouldn’t be treated as such.

    i know, this is probaby the wrong blog to say that, but my dad was a defense lawyer and i know what ‘railroading’ is. i’m not saying she’s a morally wonderful person or that she isn’t in part responsible for the massacre. but really, these days? all they have to do is take her passport away and inform TSA that she’s not allowed to leave until the trial. we’re still trying to be a better country and a nation of laws, and fair bail is part of that. this smells like politics and posturing.

    • The allegation is she helped her husband pick his target, at his behest.

      She’s involved. When questioned, she also intially lied about her knowledge, which itself is also a felony offense. Later she’d admit to the FBI she knew her husband was going to go through with it.

      If a bank is robbed, the guy who cased the bank and helped pick it for robbery is considered to be in on the conspiracy, even if this guy did not participate in the actual execution of said robbery.

      More from the linked story:

      They said Salman told the FBI that she knew her husband was going to carry out an attack in the name of the Islamic State, and that she had seen him leave the house the night of the attack with an assault rifle and ammunition.

      In addition, they said that Salman admitted that she accompanied Mateen on three occasions to case nightclubs and Downtown Disney, and that Mateen had asked her, “What would make people more upset, an attack on Downtown Disney or a club?”

      The couple also went on a spending spree before the attack, blowing through nearly the equivalent of their yearly salary on clothes, jewelry and the AR-15 rifle Mateen used in the shooting.

      If you have reasonable cause to believe someone is about to go on a mass murder spree, it’s actually a crime NOT to report it unless there are extenuating circumstances.

      • houstonray

        Thank you Becca. Yep, I feel the same way.

        Simple answer…if she had picked up the phone and called the police, ONE simple phone call, 49 people would still be alive today and 49 families would not have experienced such unimaginable grief and horror…

        She might as well have pulled the trigger herself and she deserves no different privileges than he would have had if he had been alive to go to trial.

        • i don’t misunderstand any of those facts. she is most likely criminally responsible, in the eyes of the law.

          but bail is one of those things that we have to be so careful about. “we” being judges. dad was both a defense attorney and later a judge. he was always careful to be correct in the matter of bail. cause it really does make a difference. bail should not be a judicial weapon applied *before* a trial.

          this is like when the ACLU defends nazis who want to hold a parade but fail to get a permit bc the town council thinks it’s right to deny them, but not others. i don’t like nazis and neither does anyone in the ACLU. their only client is the Constitution, in cases like that.

          i question how one judge set what seemed to be a pretty strict but fair bail in one state, and denied it in another. to me, that spells “politics and posturing.” only one bail is truly fair for this person, and not having all the facts i won’t say i know what it is. but the judiciary should be consistent. as a black woman who occasionally buys pot, this is a very important issue to me.

I did this when I was 20 years old and only after she had called the police to try and arrest me for drug possession for the 5th time. A friend of mine on the police force snitched on her. I never was hauled off and arrested. I was just made miserable for an hour or two each time the police searched my home. The beauty of the 20/10/5 mixture was that not only did it burn dead letters into her lawn, but it came back twice as green as the rest of her lawn for three years. The old bitch deserved worse.

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      Same day the Democrats have demanded Trump present evidence that Obama wiretapped him.

    • Bryan

      Is IT Happening?! Shit finally going down?
      We shall be Vigilant!!!

    • Henceforth, the President will abstain from his old title — Mr. President — and from now on be referred to as Mein Fuhrer.

      Facetiousness aside, chances are good if this is real it’s to serve a few purposes:
      – Consolidate nearly all executive power to the White House itself
      – Gut all departments to bare minimums…or propose abolishing altogether
      – Whatever else Bannon and Russia have decided to do in order to dismantle America’s central federal government.

      • Bryan

        THIS one has me on edge a little. Nothing he does will be legal or last very long but I fear what he might try to do between signing it and it being struck down. The trick seems to be to dismantle us bit by bit until all our governmental agencies are taken apart. Then in the meantime they use the laws/test runs as a way to sweep populations away bit by bit too, they ‘know’ it’ll be struck down but they’re gonna go mass deportation in the meantime and nail as many innocent people as they can grab. It gets struck down… “oopsie, we already did it” – then they’re allowed to repeat it with the next group or revise it a bit like the Muslim Ban and try to go for Round 2 or more.

        • DaddyRay

          If it was going to be something over the top it would have leaked already

          • Bryan

            I imagine so, it’s just a scare tactic – he wants us to be afraid – I am going to be ‘not afraid’ instead to spite him. Two final exams (admittedly Open book/open notes) and two large papers. By not letting the fugue take over me I’ll be skullfucking his damned hateful agenda. I won’t let the miasma affect me any longer!

        • The State Department is already such a hollow shell of what it once was, the Secretary of State has no deputy and appeared not to be the least bit put out when the Mexican foreign minister visited the White House to meet with Kushner, but State didn’t even know he was in the country.

          Word I’ve seen is the remaining staffers at Foggy Bottom just hang out in the cafeteria and conference rooms because they literally have nothing to do.

          Other departments have similarly been gutted.

      • SoCalGal20

        Here’s John Dean’s reaction. Nixon apparently tried an executive branch reorganization too.

        • DaddyRay

          The Nixon parallels make me oddly calm

        • Nixon *had* enemies and worthy adversaries on the Hill.

          Donald has…willing quislings, sycophants, and unwitting co-conspirators.

    • OdieDenCO

      Reorganizing? isn’t that something you do when you declare bankruptcy? I guess he’s going with his strengths

  • Cuberly

    Sheesh, this really is where we’re at. Trump unfollows people that have been critical of him. It really is a “reality show”. A bunch of whiney immature 13yo drama queens are running our government!

    • DaddyRay

      I’m not your friend no more… stomps off

      • Cuberly

        Exactly.

        “Um, no! I won’t sign your yearbook!”

        (sigh)

        • “Okay fine, I’ll sign your yearbook, give it here.”

          (signs) “Here’s your stupid book, now go away.”

          (reads) “You’re ugly, no one likes you, and you’ll always be sad. I hate you. I hate you. Sincerely, Donald. p.s. You suck.”

          • Cuberly

            Lol…yup, that nails it.

    • Natty Enquirer

      Whatever. It’s Twitter. Look at how Rachel’s show has improved since she stopped reporting on social media inanity and started doing serious journalism.

      • Consider also: Colbert’s Late Show was having a lot of trouble and losing badly in the ratings. Then, last year they decided to go after Donald. Meanwhile, Fallon’s show acquired a reputation of being Donald’s personal fawning court jester.

        Colbert’s show is pulling down huge ratings. Seth Meyers is doing well and has made an almost Daily Show type news review his normal bit — and it’s doing great. SNL is enjoying ratings better than they’ve been in decades — and it’s entirely because people want to see anti-Donald skits.

        Fallon? His ratings are in the toilet.

        • Skeptical_Inquirer

          Maybe if Joe & Mika’s ratings bump up, they’ll get more toothsome in their criticism.

          The networks allowing this shows that the demographic with the $$$ power is the one eating this up.

      • Cuberly

        That’s actually my point. Instead of using twitter as a promotional or informative or even commemorative media choice, instead, it’s trite shallow fragile ego bluster.

    • EweTaw

      What a whiney little bitch. Imagine what a terror he was in third grade.

      • Cuberly

        Why do I think in 3rd grade he bought some kids candy, and lorded it over them from that day forward so other kids subsidized his candy requirements hence forth.

        Why are so many people ignorant of bullies? But then again, they sort of attract each other I spose.

  • fuzzybits

    Most folks probably saw this, but it was one of the better things in a pretty lackluster show. https://youtu.be/xa4QaNIoPco

    • Meh, it was okay. Not crazy about the relentless barrage of gay/lesbian stereotypes.

      Thanks again Blake for another great post. Daisy’s will always be tops, and this places a close second. I just learned about the TED TALKS from a young soon to be college student. Great way to get some good words out there. I’ll be watching more.

      Silly Kellyanne. Everyone knows microwaves are used to alter people’s thoughts, not spy on them.

    • WHAT IS THE FREQUENCY, KELLYANNE?!!!

    • Mike_in_the_Tundra

      She also believes our TVs are watching us.

      • safari

        Some are listening to us if you’ve purchased one with voice control.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      Kids at school: Your mom thinks the appliances talk to the President.

      Conway’s kids: That’s not my mom.

      I saw this with a touring company in Minneapolis. My husband and I were totally blown away.

      • Cuberly

        I’m jealous, would have loved to have seen it like live.

        So far the only Bourne I’ve seen on the stage was his Edward Scissorhands which was quite good.

        To escape I’ve been looking for his other performances on YouTube.

    • TuuxKabin

      it is so beautiful and nice to see, first thing in the morning!

      Here’s a curious bit for you in return.
