Christchurch Mosque shootings

Recommended Posts

You sort of think this kind of stuff shouldn't happen in New Zealand as it's such a chilled place.  

 

Dozens are feared dead as at least two gunmen opened fire at two central Christchurch mosques.  Shots have also been fired at Christchurch Hospital, which has activated its emergency plan and expects 40-50 victims.

One gunman, who is believed to be Australian, filmed as he shot victims in the mosque. A manifesto outlined what he was planning to do.

Stuff.co.nz reports that the shooters' rifles had Alexandre Bissonette and Luca Traini written on them - the names of mosque shooters in Italy and Canada.

That bodycam video is grim viewing. Like a first person shooter, people huddled in corners and he's spraying bullets left and right.

Our first terror attack. Every other major country in the world has had them so it was only a matter of time till it got to us I guess.

 

A sad day. Thoughts go out to all the victims.

Now then, don’t be trying to boost yerself into the major country category on the back of this.

 

i wonder if there will be any calls to send him back to somewhere other than Australia and strip his citizenship, I’ve not met many black fellas by the name of Tarrant.

Yup, of course the most rational explanation to this is that it’s the victims’ fault for being Muslims.

There were almost certainly terrorist sympathisers among the victims.

No it’s not a unique take at all, loads of fellow bogans think the same as you Hades. This is a press release from one of the higher profile ones for example.

2 chronicles 15:13

But that whoever would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, should be put to death, whether young or old, man or woman.

 

So using his own logic he shouldn't be too surprised if a Muslim kills him, they are just responding in kind to what Christians threatened to do first.

Hades you really are a malignant prick these days.

Because I'm sick of the violent killing, torture and slaughter of all animals and ideologies that justify dominion over the rest of nature?

Take it he was voted in spouting that sort of hatred.

Yup, that sort of attitude is pretty standard in Australia, particularly amongst bogans in the backwater towns. We have a live one in Hades FFS. I had the misfortune of growing up with some of them in the boarding school I went too, we had a lot of kids from farming towns... the saddest thing is they were just like normal kids... easy to get along with, particularly if you stick to simple topics like the AFL. They just grew up in very isolated towns, where they had very little contact with people from different cultures, and the media over there is completely dominated by Murdoch.

    • If there is one Liverpool player who would love to get one over Barcelona more than most it is James Milner.

      Part of the Man City squad who were eliminated by Barcelona from the Champions League in back to back seasons (2013/4/2014/5), Milner does not want to make it a hat-trick of defeats.

      While the Spanish giants are many people's favourites to win the competition, the versatile veteran believes the Reds can pose them plenty of searching questions of their own.

      The Liverpool Echo reported Milner as saying:

      "I've played against Barcelona a couple of times before in the knockout stages and not had the greatest success.

      "They are a strong team and it is a tough place to go, but I don’t think they will have played too many teams like us.

      “It will be difficult. They are a team full of great individual talent and a great side too.

      “The Nou Camp is a fantastic stadium and a fantastic place to play with a great atmosphere. 

      "It will be very tough and we will have to be at our best.

      "But over the last couple of seasons, with the teams that we have beaten in the Champions League, we should go there with confidence, no matter how tough it is going to be.”  

      The win over Porto on Wednesday evening saw the Reds progress to the final four of Europe's elite club competition for the second consecutive season.

      It is the first time they have achieved such a feat since Rafa Benitez's tenure (2006/7-07-08).

      Milner believes it is a sign of all-around improvement by Jurgen Klopp's men.

      "It’s great. Doing it back-to-back shows that we are improving as a team and getting to where we want to be.

      “It’s not easy. The teams in the semi-finals are completely different to last year but it’s a great a place to be and mission accomplished.”

      Milner said he expected a real challenge from Porto in the second leg, but the pleasing thing is that it showed a resilience that has been a real trademark of this squad this season.

      "The pressure they put us under from the start, we knew it would be tough but we just ground it out. We defended, we got the chance and once we took it, that helped in terms of the tie.

      "We showed different sides to ourselves, defending and showing what we can do depending how the game is. 

      "You are not going to play well in every single game. It says a lot about the character within the team.

      "In the second half we got some great goals – a great ball from Trent Alexander-Arnold for the second. We are scoring different types of goals as well, from set-plays.

      "Virgil (van Dijk) is getting a few now. He was getting a fair bit of stick earlier in the season for not getting enough, now he can’t stop scoring.

      Milner is a perfect man to have on board at this time of the season as he has lived through the pressure of a title race.

      He knows that his former club will quickly put the disappointment of their heartbreaking Champions League exit behind them and focus on the league which includes getting revenge over Tottenham in the early kick-off on Saturday.

      While for Liverpool it is about keeping their mind on the job at hand.

      "City are Premier League champions for a reason and I am sure they will react like champions.

      “They will go again, but Spurs will have their backs up and will want to go again after getting such a great result to get through. 

      "They are two top teams and it will be an exciting game for the neutral.

      "We will keep one eye on it but all we can do is influence our games. There are big games coming all over the place, the first thing we have to do is recover for Cardiff.

      "There are a lot of tough games coming up and it won’t be easy. We are used to a game every three days and when the pressure is on towards the end of the season, it maybe takes a bit more out of you.

      "But the team has been fantastic in terms of how we have dealt with it all. We have got a big game of our own at the weekend that we have to get a result in.”

    • For many Liverpool fans, a special place in their heart is reserved for Rafa Benitez. The Spaniard brought with him a tremendous managerial pedigree when he arrived on English soil from Valencia in 2004.
        While Liverpool had made important headway under Gerard Houllier, Benitez elevated the squad to a new level, famously winning the Champions League in his first season.

      It was not only his tactical nous along with the quality of player he was able to sign which won him plaudits, it was his ability to connect with the supporters which is so important in modern football.

      So it is for that reason that when the current Newcastle manager gives his nod of approval to the current man in the Anfield hot seat, you have to give a whole lot of value to his comments.

      The Liverpool Echo (via Marca) reported Benitez as saying:

      " Klopp is doing a great job at Anfield.   "They are in that position because they deserve it.

      "Last weekend I watched the game against Chelsea and they play with an intensity and an impressive level.

      “They are a clear contender to win both titles and have the potential to do it."  

      Benitez was a master of getting the right result in Europe over two legs, be it against the almighty Barcelona and Real Madrid or Juventus and Inter Milan.

      Since his acrimonious departure at the end of the 2009/10 season, the Reds fell off the radar in terms of top flight European football for quite a few seasons.

      It has been a methodical build with the German in charge, culminating in back to back Champion League semi final appearances.

      While last year's path to the final was captivating and thrilling, the ability to get to the final four while also having a title challenge on their plate adds that extra bit of merit to the achievement.

      Rafa's priorities are quite rightly with his Newcastle side at this time, however you get a real sense that his trademark grin will appear if the Reds manage to lift some silverware at the end of this season.

    • Not quite sure who you are but thanks for the mention.    #HendersonIsBoss 
    • Virgil will lock down Suarez. He's still a big goal threat but is average in general play and there are a few players in the Premier League that are harder to deal with at this point in his career.    The keys will be limiting Messi obviously, and whether we can outrun them and beat them up physically.
