Widow of Pulse Nightclub Shooter Acquitted

Noor Salman, 31, was acquitted at trial on her charges of Obstruction and Providing Material Support to a Terrorist Organization for her alleged connection to the shooting at the Pulse nightclub that her husband, Omar Mateen, carried out in 2016. Her attorneys argued that she was an abused spouse, that Mateen concealed much about his life from her, and that there was no way she could have known he would attack Pulse nightclub. Ultimately, a jury agreed that the government did not prove her contributions and found her not guilty. Whether or not she could have done something to stop it is another story: but her failure to stop him would not be criminal.
