I heard 4 in custody now on? Not that the numbers matter.
One released as not being connected. I expect that number to increase though given what they're reporting on. Police moving in on related addresses.
The fucking fash were talking about weapons training in plain sight. A well known writer/RW political type followed one of the killers on twitter ffs. This was preventable and we did nothing.
Sickening story to wake up to. Two different mosques involved, and mentions of a school too, and a number of explosive devices found. Absolutely horrendous.
treefrog who was the RW writer? That whaleoil cunt?
David Farrar. Works for the National party.
I'm a long way from New Zealand but I think I might leave some flowers outside the local mosque later, is that a thing people do?
Nice thought, shows sympathy, compassion and unity in grief.
[silly comment edited]
I kind of woke up to this and that makes me really sad.
No words. Just sadness here.
Muslim leaders say concerns about terrorism not taken seriously
It is horrid isn't it. I am in the UAE at the moment and have been treated with such kindness. Feel a bit sadder at the world today.
It’s a nice gesture of solidarity and respect.
Fucking evil bastards.
Christchurch was severely damaged in an earthquake in 2011 which killed 185 people from which I don't think it has really recovered and now this barbarity. I can only imagine how shocked and vulnerable people there must be feeling.
As mentioned above it's always had a strong coterie of white power wankers, living in a pastiche of a small English city. The Avon river for fucks sake.
Prayer-goer returned fire at one of the mosques, apparently. Gun laws must have liberalised in NZ of late.
Words seem redundant.
Can the thread title be updated?
The BBC are reporting that the touring Bangladesh cricket team were just about to enter the mosque when the shooting started. Possible that they were the target?
Grim all round. Thoughts to those involved.
Australian PM confirms Australian national, 40 fatalities and 20 injured, Controlled explosions in Auckland train station, NZ authorities seem to saying now it was one attacker, two other persons still in custody, with one other released.
One of the standard cunt responses on stuff like this goes along the lines of ‘I can’t condone actions like this, but if the people had been listened to on immingration...’. Expect some compassion-free shite like that from Hopkins/Liddell/some kipper politician in the next few days.
There is some mainstream anti-immigration sentiment in NZ, but I got the impression that was mostly directed towards Chinese/Korean people, rooted in people being priced out of housing by foreign money etc. Australia seemed more a hotbed of anti-refugee stuff.
Really wish that the media would stop talking about events like these as if they were isolated incidents perpetrated by disaffected individuals.
I once read a manual written by white nationalists that basically advocated for this style of terrorism as a means of advancing the race war. This shit isn't taken seriously enough.
Fuck, now 49 dead.
And 48 seriously wounded.
Hatred never sleeps, it’s remorseless and vindictive.
Fatalities now 49. Four nine.
