The Orlando Pulse Nightclub mass shooting, Christina Grimmie’s murder at the hands of a fan, and celebrity stalking issues are explored on Crime Time. The past violent behavior and relationships of Omar Mateen, and response to the shooting from Donald Trump (including his infamous ban on muslims) are discussed with retired FBI SSA Steve Moore and former head of homicide prevention at New Scotland Yard, Laura Richards. Stalking, celebrity stalking, the death of the Voice contestant Christina Grimmie, as well as the man who was obsessed with Lily Allen, and the impact of the 1989 murder of Rebecca Schaeffer on how we prevent stalking are all examined, in this uncensored discussion hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.

Steve Moore was appointed an FBI Special Agent in 1983 at the age of 25. He served as a Special Agent and Supervisory Special Agent for 25 years, retiring in 2008. Steve’s early career was spent in covert operations against white supremacist organizations in northern Idaho and the northwest. Later, he led the investigations of many high-profile crimes in LA, including the first ever conviction for an anthrax threat, the Buford Furrow shooting/murder spree at a Jewish Community Center and the interdiction of a planned attack on California’s second-largest oil refinery. Five of his bureau years were spent on the LA FBI SWAT team as an assault “Operator” and sniper. Several more years were spent as an FBI helicopter pilot-in-command. Ultimately, Steve built up over 6,000 hours of airplane and helicopter flight time. He retired in June, 2008. His recent book is titled Special Agent Man: My Life in the FBI as a Terrorist Hunter, Helicopter Pilot, and Certified Sniper.
