A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    and of course, delude people (for whatever reason), want to gain the "oxygen of publicity".

    So how do we organise ourselves such that horrific acts are investigated, reported, but not glorified?

    Reading about those ISIS freaks doing more, and more disgusting things, looks a little bit like vying for attention...or is it media focus?

    My condolences to all affected, this was a most disgraceful criminal act :-(
