At least 40 people killed in mass shootings at two New Zealand mosques, prime minister says. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said more than 20 people were seriously injured in one of the worst acts of violence in New Zealand's history. Four people have been detained in connection to the attacks, New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush said in a news conference on Friday. Source 5j.
Apparently he had help and filmed the whole thing live on Facebook via a body camera he was wearing. This is going to cause some serious retaliation in the Muslim world and divide New Zealand.
49 is a lot of people to be killed in one place and the most tragic thing is the children who were involved. There will be lots of hate brewing from this but I hope people calm and react in a civil way.
If with a tactical error he was successful in killing 50 people can you imagine what would have happened if there were no mistakes?
I do not think it was an error. He wanted fame and he did it in the way he did it for maximum terror. If you think about it he could have just threw grenades or planted a bomb but going in there and killing like that takes a whole different kind of deranged mind.
