Mass shooting New Zealand Mosque - MOD NOTE POST #1

https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-...oter-situation

Rip to all involved.

Filmed himself doing it and videos are on the net/YouTube.


Mod Note:

Please do not propagate videos or links to manifestos in this thread. Given the seriousness and impact of this event, its just not appropriate right now.

Given this happened this morning, i dont want any victim blaming or conspiracy theories that have no direct basis or backing in fact.

Can't say I blame them. Folks like Brevik who immediately demonstrate a willingness to surrender are a rarity.

However, usually such things turn out in the end to be self-inflicted gunshots, not police-fired ones.

At least one shooter confirmed to be an Aussie. 2 shooters confirmed, possibly more at another location

A foul act of complete cowardice to attack and murder people at prayer.

That's an interesting twist, from that article.

Second shooting at mosque in Linwood

A second shooting happened at a mosque in the Linwood area of the city.

One Friday prayer goer returned fire with a rifle or shotgun.

Witnesses said they heard multiple gunshots around 1.45pm.

A well known Muslim local chased the shooters and fired two shots at them as they sped off.

He was heard telling police officers he was firing in "self defence".


Note, for the record, Kiwi firearms laws are quite different from much of the world. They work off "Track the man, not the weapon". If a person is good to go, they can own pretty much what's on the permit, which can, in theory, include full-on machineguns. Firearms are generally not registered, only owners. That said, I have no idea what their position is on Aussies with permits.

So it's looking likely that there were two shooters?

Looks like he killed at least 30 on the Facebook Livestream. It's really really bad.

That statement is going to be very very controversial.

Pardon my ignorance, has there been any terrorist attacks in New Zealand by those who subscribe to a version of Islam? I ask because I can't recall any. How do you radicalise someone to the point of them murdering people of a different identity when that identity hasn't even committed any violence in the radicals' homeland? Extreme level of brainwashing.

In many ways I find this event more disturbing than other mass killings.

The last with the manifesto is not even from New Zealand. He's one sick puppy. His Twitter was all dodgy memes and he was a regular on 8chan supposedly.

CBC News are reporting 4 have been arrested so far.
