    Guy posted on Chan before he went live. Must have been 20+ fatalities just in one mosque from his stream.
    Brenton tarrant I think his name was.
    Iron cross
    Nordic symbols
    And muslim attacks plastered across his guns.
    Anti immigration.
    Looked to have been training for a while. He was fairly calm on clearing weapon jams and his movement.

    One brave soul ran at him to stop the gunman, but was gunned down a metre from him. Old men and young kids. Stupid waste of life.

    If you have issues take it up with parliament (legally). Don't gun down innocent people. Anyone being killed in this manner is disgusting.

    His Manifesto makes interesting (sic) reading. So far his strategy seems to be working.

    He is not the only sick puppy in all this

    They are noticeably growing in numbers in parts of the web. They are being pushed underground, with the result seemingly starting to band together. Where before they were generally loners.
    Worrying trend.

    My biggest concern would be revenge attacks that start fueling the fire. This was a terrorist attack aimed at dividing. Well planned to get the greatest media coverage and views.

    Apparently he wanted to show that Muslims were not safe in any country. Also that muslims had infiltrated every nation.
    He had traveled a fair bit

    I'm interested from a sociological view why you think this event needs to be kept hidden from the people that are interested in viewing it?

    Was that a thought after Charlie Hebdo too? I agree tit for tat isn't the way forward but one mob tends to want the last dig.

    Because we have to treat all people like children, except television reporters and journalists.

    That video (i haven't seen it) will live forever same as all those crazy ISIL videos, this guy wore a camera, i suppose a Go-pro? its a recruitment video for the social media instant video generation.

    I imagine Facebook and twitter etc will come under some pressure to somehow stop being used as platforms for promoting terror and extremism.
