Looks like a far right based attack... they live streamed it on Facebook and other online sites ...and published a similar document to Anders Behring Breivik stating their reasons. Neutral

New Zealand of all places felt like it wouldn't, couldn't, be touched by this sort of hatred. Terribly sad. Big Cry

England 2016 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 SE Tech Auto Loire BlueDiscovery 4

it is a terrible awful thing to happen, but politicians in all countries havent grasped the resentment some folks have over immigration. All these folks see is people coming in and changing what they saw as "their" country in a way they dont like, not really integrating (staying within their own communities), and taking/getting benefits which seem over and above what locals would have got (rightly or wrongly). It then makes it easy for extreme (and not so extreme in some cases) points of view to build and be played on by those wanting to fuel tension.

United Kingdom 2005 Discovery 3 TDV6 S Manual Zambezi SilverDiscovery 3

A mindless and cowardly act. Sad

To AC comments, too often the perception isn't the reality but unfortunately praying on peoples fears sells newspapers or fits a political agenda. Besides, its always easy to blame a minority who are different and sadly too much of today's vitriol and rhetoric against minorities, or those who are different, has too many similarities of 1930's Germany Twisted Evil

In respects I agree, but then, it seems very familiar to what the British were doing whilst we were building our empire.

My apologies, as this thread should be focused on events in Christchurch.

New Zealand 2011 Discovery 4 5.0 V8 HSE Auto BournvilleDiscovery 4

We are in shock that it has happened here. The last time anything like this occurred was 29 years ago. We have reasonable gun control, but it appears that we have become complacent.

One of the things that makes New Zealand great is that it is truly multi-cultural. We have people from all over the world living here, and it makes it better for all of us. We have plenty of space, and we should welcome all people and make them feel safe.

There is no excusing the narrow minded, bigoted, pieces of Censored that have done this terrible thing. Our PM summed it up nicely when she said these victims had a place in NZ, but the evil scumbags who did this do not.

We are all one people. We should care about other peoples religions, skin colour, sexuality, or what colour t-shirt they decide to wear. We are all people. We are all human. Except the dicks behind this, I won’t call them animals because I like animals, and don’t wish to insult them.

Some people need to get over themselves. Just because someone worships a different way, or at all, doesn’t make this OK. We have jobs for those who want them. We have opportunities for those who want them. Taking your frustrations out because you don’t have the inclination, drive or intelligence to better your own life makes you a small minded, stupid, low life.

Religion is the biggest killer in history. Maybe we should start learning from what has gone before.

I’ll finish here as I’m starting to get my rant on, and that’s just not helpful to anyone.
 King of the typo.

MY11 D4 5.0 V8, Bourneville, lots of goodies!

Now departed: '85 RR Vogue, '94 D1, '95 D1, '70 SIIA, '97 D1, '04 D2a. All V8, except for the SIIA - but that drank as much petrol anyway!
