As much as possible, Orlando can start to put the tragedy behind them.

"A visibly anxious Salman, wearing a dark suit, stood in court as the verdict was read. One of her uncles, seated in court behind her, stifled a sob as relatives held one another.
"We are so grateful to them, so grateful for their verdict," Susan Clary, the spokeswoman for Salman's family, said outside court. Salman's relatives and Clary said they were sorry for the victims and survivors but grateful for the verdict.
"It's Good Friday for everybody," an uncle, Al Salman, said. "I want to say thank you, Lord"

I haven’t seen any pics of her wearing Muslim clothing, before or after this case.

His ex wife was pretty hot, also no Muslim clothing.

The article doesn't say it, but early on, I recall MSM reporting that she had stated to authorities that she would drive around with him "casing" the scene (or something similar).

I remember reading that too. Apparently the prosecution didn’t have any evidence of that happening. Also, the fbi didn’t have any recording of her 11 hour interrogation.

Seems like they could show him getting gas, for example, by the Pulse nightclub and then buying her a Louis Vuitton or Birkin bag. Someone didn't do their homework prepping the case for trial.

Apparently the jury felt she was guilty, but had no option but to acquit
Perhaps the FBI (task force out of the Tampa office handled the investigation) should have recorder the interviews with Ms Salman.

"Salman avoided a potential life sentence Friday after she was found not guilty on charges of obstruction and aiding and abetting by attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization – a controversial decision that left survivors frustrated and angry."
From the jury foreman:
"I want to make several things very clear. A verdict of not guilty did NOT mean that we thought Noor Salman was unaware of what Omar Mateen was planning to do. On the contrary we were convinced she did know. She may not have known what day, or what location, but she knew. However, we were not tasked with deciding if she was aware of a potential attack. The charges were aiding and abetting and obstruction of justice. I felt the both the prosecution and the defense did an excellent job presenting their case. I wish that the FBI had recorded their interviews with Ms. Salman as there were several significant inconsistencies with the written summaries of her statements. The bottom line is that, based on the letter of the law, and the detailed instructions provided by the court, we were presented with no option but to return a verdict of not guilty."
