One of New Zealands Darkest Days


Sadly there is so much violence in the world that its affecting everybody on the planet..and New Zealand has not escaped the wrath of whats being called a terrorist attack on Mosques there killing 49 people and wounding 20 more.
March 15th 2019: Christchurch New Zealand :
At least 49 people were killed in a great mass shooting at two mosques full of worshippers attending Friday prayers. One man was arrested and charged with murder in what appeared to be a carefully planned racist attack .Police also defused an explosive device in a car.two others are being held in custody the Police are trying to determine how they are involved.Many of the victims of the brutal slaying could be migrants or refugees .While there was no more reason to believe there are any more suspects other than three men and one woman, it has raised the national security level from the lowest low to the highest high .Flights have been cancelled in and out of the Island Country because with whats been going on the security had to stop screening customers and baggage to fully concentrate on the attack.
A man who claimed responsibility for the shootings left a 74 page anti -immigrant manifesto in which he explained who he was and his reasoning for the attack.28 year old white Australian and a racist.While many of the dead and wounded are immigrants and refugees themselves , they have chosen to make New Zealand home and were welcomed with open arms.
I personally have friends and acquaintences in New Zealand and they are the warmest happiest people I know..it is devastating

thanks that's sweet of you ..people don't realize that this is a real paradise and I wish I lived there New Zealand is their own Island Country and they sustain themselves real well..They are probably the only people who fought visiously for their land when the white settlers came and tried to claim it..The Maori people who are the first to settle the land are so sweet and caring..the term" guerilla warfare " was how the Maori people kept their land from getting into the hands of the white settlers...they used it as a means of keeping their land..fighting the enemy head on...

well this post is in sympathy to the people who lost their lives and the wounded who almost died also the families left behind in the aftermath of the attack..I am not interested in any debate or war of words with someone obviously missing the point of this post ...if you have something to say about what you believe is an important part of New Zealand acceptance of all walks of life .best you put up your own post..my friends in New Zealand are going through some tough times because they live in and around the Christchurch area ..

This is why there is no such thing as a casually racist or bigoted comment. Somewhere, early on, these killers were encouraged to hate and not called out for their unacceptable bullshit.

Again jack always a pleasure wish there were more to the point comments out of respect for the people involved in the attack..everyone has an opinion and is allowed to express just that so it is what it is..thanx Jack
