    Exclamation What's Going On In ChCh?

    I'm watching a video on LiveLeak and there's a guy shooting up a Mosque or two in ChCh.

    https://news.sky.com/story/serious-f...doors-11665804

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/li...-incident-live

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/111...tchurch-mosque

    This is pretty gruesome - it's from the shooter's GoPro camera and he's shooting a LOT of people...................

    The Link has been taken down for anyone just now trying to see it --- but it is running on my 'puter at this moment although I cannot link you guys to it.

    [edited] (I think this link is now dead and pulled down)

    My prayers and thoughts are with all my buddies in Upsidedown Land. Watching the people get shot and die on the screen is so unreal! Gads - I warn you, if you CAN see it - be very careful!

    We know as much as you do right now
    The entire city is practically in lockdown, shops are closing, busses have stopped, no taxis, no uber, all schools are in lockdown
    its surreal.
    The Internet moves in mysterious ways.

    From Stuff I wonder how much the first reporting will be found to be accurate
    2 gunmen
    1 gunman is Australian
    30 dead
    A mosque goer shot back at gunman with rifle or shotgun
    Its amazing how Potatoes give us chips,fries and Vodka.

    Get your s*** together every other vegetable.

    I watched the whole 15:45 GoPro vid and I do NOT hear any sirens.

    FIFTEEN MINUTES! Fer crying out loud!

    Here's what I saw on LiveLeak until it was pulled down.......

    I have the vid playing on my tablet. I stop it and replay it so I can get a decent count on the bodies - but this guy's a sick-o.

    This guy must've dumped 10 mags and then walks out to his car and gets a different --- what is it - an AK? and takes a lot of long distance, metered shots at people outside the mosque.

    I believe I counted 45-50 victims, most shot multiple times......

    Everywhere he hears moaning, he pumps another bunch of rounds into the pile of dead and dying people.

    At 12:03 - still no sirens. Music is "The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown 'Fire' " Where in hell are the cops?

    Back into his car at 12:51... he's shooting a 12ga at more people through his own windshield....

    13:50 - still no sirens - he's giggling and 'Fire' is still playing. 14:33 - speaking foreign language - driving fast to ?

    14:52 I hear a second voice with a NZ accent in English "This **** happens" or words to that effect.

    15:09 - he's complaining about dropping mags and talking about how 'that's not a proper firefight.... '

    Background music is some sort of Brit marching stuff - I don't know name, but recognize the tune.... sick!

    .... and I've lost the connex and now the link is dead.

    Now there's a "EDITED" version up at the LiveLeak link.......
    Man - the news here is saying that you guys have blamed this on Trump. Whaaaaa-aaa-t?

    OK - the link is up again and it's about 15 seconds long, just as he enters the front door of the mosque, and starts to shoot, it ends.

    Despite bans on the video etc some NZ fans have it up and there are some approval comments.
    Other forums have banned discussion so idiots are posting bogus thread titles and discussing it.

    I think the guy is probably one of Aussies deported back to NZ lot.

    This is why guns suck and white nazi types.

    Not all muslims are terroists, as we see, some white people are too, whatever religion this jerk is, if any.

    Sadly maximum here is 17 years for murder...although that is generally a parole period. There is a preventative detention thing, used a couple of times recently, but it's pretty lame.
    We should have the USs sentences really, and a death penalty.

    Just try and find him guilty on each death and run the sentences consecutively, not concurrently like they tend to do here in the US.

    Police release:


    [/B]"UPDATE 6 - Christchurch serious firearms incident"
    [/B]
    Please attribute to Police Commissioner Mike Bush

    Police continue to respond to an ongoing serious and tragic firearms incident in Christchurch.

    The incident remains fluid and information is still coming to hand.

    We can confirm that Police have been dealing with two shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, one at Deans Avenue and one at Linwood Avenue.

    Those locations remain locked down.

    We can confirm there have been a number of fatalities.

    We cannot at this stage confirm the precise number but it is significant.

    So far, four people, three men and a woman, have been taken into custody after being apprehended by Police.

    We are speaking with those people.

    Police are still treating this incident as ongoing and Christchurch residents are strongly urged to stay indoors and keep safe, and monitor the Police website and social media for further information.

    We continue to utilise every possible resource to resolve the situation.

    Police work with a number of agencies in preparation for events of this nature and we have plans and procedures in place which we are following.

    We are receiving assistance from NZDF, Ambulance, Fire and Emergency NZ, and wider Government.

    At this stage we will not be discussing the offenders’ possible motivations or the causes of this incident.

    We have asked all mosques nationally to shut their doors, and advise that people refrain from visiting these premises until further notice.

    The lock down of schools through Christchurch has been lifted.

    We thank the public for their ongoing cooperation at this very serious time.

    We would like to reassure members of the public that there is a large Police presence in the city and the safety of the community is our priority.

    We will provide further information as we are able.
    I have very high hopes that seriousness is a reversible condition.
