Nightclub gunman took wife to Walmart, bought bullets the night before shooting, source reveals

Noor Salman, the wife of the Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen, shopped with her husband at a Walmart the night before the massacre where he bought five containers of ammunition, a source close to the investigation told on Tuesday, shining new light on what the widow may have known.

Salman failed four lie detector tests and was subjected to IQ and other psychological tests to determine her intelligence and state of mind before prosecutors filed federal charges against her, the source said.

A federal indictment unsealed Tuesday charged her with aiding and abetting her husband’s support of the Islamic State, as well as obstruction of justice. The charges could put her behind bars for life if a court convicts her. The FBI arrested her Monday at her house in Rodeo, Calif.

Her social media posts will be used against her to demonstrate her support for ISIS, the source added.

Salman appeared nervous and spoke softly as she faced a judge in Oakland Tuesday. “She knew he was going to conduct the attack,” federal prosecutor Roger Handberg told the judge.

    If that woman knew her husband was planning an attack on Americans, was with him when he bought the ammunition, took him to the location where he shot and killed people, then she was an accomplice and is just as guilty as if she helped him pull the trigger.

    I had someone tell me his Indian friend who lives in India, torn between Muslims and Hindu and this guy says: “There are two kinds of Muslims. Those who dream of killing you and those who do it.”

    Nuff said.

    I’m glad to see investigators are doing their job in a thorough manner. Everyone involved in the attack or its preparation needs to be held responsible for their part in this horrible action. That is what the criminal justice system is for.

    Still the only one responsible, was the shooter, no matter how much support from his wive (s) and the koran. He could have done the right thing.

    1. goldie says:

      That’s not true. To aid and abet a crime is a crime.

      1. GrizzMann says:

        I insist that he is responsible. he was the one to say no, I wont do it. Yes she could be one that abetted hm and encouraged him. That is a separate crime. for which she could have done the right thing. They are individuals responsible for their acts.

      You are wrong:

      What is Complicity or Accomplice Liability?

      Complicity is the act of helping or encouraging another individual to commit a crime. It is also commonly referred to as aiding and abetting. One who is complicit is said to be an accomplice. But, even though an accomplice does not actually commit the crime, his or her actions helped someone in the commission of the crime.

      The concept of accomplice liability means an accomplice faces the same degree of guilt and punishment as the individual who committed the crime. Indeed, accomplices can face the same penalties, including prison time. The key consideration is whether the individual intentionally and voluntarily encouraged or assisted in the commission of the crime, or (in some cases) failed to prevent it.

      Elements of Accomplice Liability

      With some variations, depending onbthe state,ba prosecutor must be able to prove the following four elements in order to convict someone for being an accomplice or aiding and abetting:

      • A crime was committed by another individual;
      • The defendant “aided, counseled, commanded, or encouraged” the other person in the commission of the crime.
      • The defendant acted with the requisite mental state in their jurisdiction, for example, knowingly or purposefully, to assist in the crime
      (see Mens Rea – A Defendant’s Mental State).

      Examples of Complicity

      The following examples illustrate the many ways an individual may be an accomplice to a criminal act:

      • Serving as the getaway driver in a bank robbery.
      • Turning off the alarm system of a jewelry store in which you work, knowing that it will be robbed later that evening.
      • Loaning a handgun to someone who you know is planning to commit a crime.
      • Directing a vehicle to a dead-end street where you know an armed carjacker is waiting.

      The Difference Between Complicity and Conspiracy

      When an individual takes on an active role in the planning of a crime, the crime may instead be one of conspiracy. A conspirator agrees with others to commit a future crime, while an accomplice assists, in some way, in the actual commission of a crime. Furthermore, unlike accomplices to a crime, conspirators can be guilty even if their plan is not completed.

      Example: If a group of individuals gets together, agrees to plan and commit a robbery, and takes an overt action to accomplish their plan (e.g. purchasing a car, guns, and tools for the robbery), they could each be charged with the crime of conspiracy to commit robbery, even if the robbery never happens. However, if and when the planned robbery is committed by the individuals, they could be charged with both conspiracy and robbery (as principals or accomplices, depending on their role in the robbery).

      1. GrizzMann says:

        They could each be charged with the crime of conspiracy to commit robbery, even if the robbery never happens. Absolutely true, Each will be charged. That is my intent. Each is responsible for their own actions.

    3. Roy Fredrichsen says:

      GrizzMann – Are you implying that being a believer of the Koran makes it O.K. to “Kill the Infidel” and no one should be held accountable for the murder of innocent even if she knew in advance what he planned and did nothing to stop him?

      1. GrizzMann says:

        Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

        Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

        Just a couple.

        1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

          One of the Ten Commandments says “Thou shalt not kill” Remember the Quran requires it of every Muslim believer.
