    The guy that did this is from Australia. Not that it really matters but I wonder why he did this in New Zealand? There must be mosques in Australia.

    What a completely senseless and horrible attack on fellow human beings.

      Some unfortunate but probably wise precautions going on here...

        there is very little middle-ground anymore


        Unfortunately The media will need to expand censorship for all, in efforts to not set off the lowest common denominator .... that’s where we’ve gotten ourselves

          Instead of censoring media or grabbing guns, perhaps we could go back to the days when crazy people were locked up in institutions.

            He was born in Australia but living in New Zealand apparently.

                gun grabbing is your own thing

                And if you don't see how media is already ramping up censorship, then there is no use in really talking about it anymore

                  One of the best stories I read today was about two officers with the Toronto Police Service who, when they heard about New Zealand, walked into a Toronto mosque and asked for the imam. When he came, they asked "are you alright? are you feeling safe? Is there anything we can do for you?"

                  It's a scary world sometimes. I'm not religious and I don't care for the most part what religion people follow, but churches should be a safe place. This is just so sad. I'm glad the police were able to disarm the car rigged with IEDs. I can't imagine what those police and first responders and hospitals had to see last night.

                    What a sick world we live in. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this attack.

                      Make sure you turn autopay off if you're logging into Facebook or Twitter this morning, or just take a day off. Some things cannot be unseen, and I'd assume this is one of them.
                      I am always mystified at the outrage over sharing the video of stuff like this. Are you telling me you've never seen a holocaust documentary where emaciated corpses are thrown in to mass graves where they tumble rag doll-style on to a pile of other emaciated corpses? What'd you do, shut your eyes? Demand it get banned?

                        just an imo…...but these vids and emotional style coverage just fuel other wannabes and copycats.

                          An Australian writer and producer said it a lot better than I ever could...

                            Absolutely they do. The underground forums and communication mediums are bad enough but this, IMO, will actually INSPIRE other people filled with hate to do something similar. For those that have similar hate and stances to this fellow, he'll be glorified the same way the Norwegian guy from 2011 is.

                              I would argue there is a difference between documentaries on the Holocaust that happened in 1945 used for educational purposes vs a live streamed video of a brutal mass murder that just happened that is shared widely on social media and is inadvertently seen by many when it pops up in their feeds who would rather not see it, including friends and family of the victims.

                                The ****bag that did this looked at the other ****bag that did the shooting in Quebec as some sort of hero.
