Statement on Orlando Nightclub Shooting, 6/12/2016

In the Orlando nightclub mass shooting on 6/12/2016, it is puzzling that the police handled an alleged “hostage situation” by waiting outside for 3 hours while 50 people were murdered and 53 more were injured. Surely the police should have heard the shots and screams and intervened earlier? I cannot fathom what sort of “hostage situation” would be handled by allowing the alleged lone gunman to injure or kill half of the approximately 200 people in the nightclub, over a period of 3 hours (2:02–5:00 a.m.).
