NZ Threatens 10 Years In Prison For ‘Possessing’ Mosque Shooting Video, by Tyler Durden.
New Zealand authorities have reminded citizens that they face up to 10 years in prison for “knowingly” possessing a copy of the New Zealand mosque shooting video – and up to 14 years in prison for sharing it. …
Popular New Zealand Facebook group Wellington Livenotes that “NZ police would like to remind the public that it is an offence to share an objectional publication which includes the horrific video from yesterday’s attack. If you see this video, report it immediately. Do not download it. Do not share it. If you are found to have a copy of the video or to have shared it, you face fines & potential imprisonment.” …
Meanwhile in the UK:
On Saturday afternoon, a 24-year-old man from Oldham was arrested on suspicion of sending malicious communications in support of the mosque attacks. It is unclear what he is alleged to have written.
The Greater Manchester Police said in a statement that they “became aware of a post on social media making reference and support for the terrible events in New Zealand,” adding “Police have made urgent enquiries and a man aged 24 from the Oldham area is now under arrest on suspicion of sending malicious communications.”
And back in NZ the police have also been busy protecting citizens from certain information:
An 18-year-old man was denied bail at a court in New Zealand on Monday after he was charged with distributing a live stream of the mass shooting at a mosque last week, the New Zealand Herald reported. …
The teen was initially charged with publishing material insulting other races and ethnicities but that charge was withdrawn and replaced by the two new charges on Monday.
We live in a free, open, and tolerant societies where public policy is made by listening to what everyone has to say and then rationally choosing an evidence-based solution, everyone is given equal opportunity, and the law is applied equally to all. Are still we allowed to say that in Australia, comrade?
The propaganda effort and the response of the political class over the Christchurch terrorist massacre have been massive. And so very different from responses to the tens of Islamic terrorist massacres in the West. Yet somehow, both cases get turned into concern for protecting Muslims, and open-hating-season for those on the right. Don’t you get suspicious when they say every problem has the same solution, a solution that just happens to benefit them?
Dutch police have arrested a man of Turkish origin suspected of being involved in a shooting in Utrecht that killed three people and wounded five, city authorities say. …
But hours after the shooting, the gunman’s motive remained unclear.
Scarcely even rates as “news” now, does it?
A reader notes:
In other news, a female colleague (very non-PC) said she went to a meeting last week with public servants up here from Canberra. Three men and her. The public servants apologised to her at the beginning of the meeting that there weren’t more women present. She’s far too smart to day anything but thought they were total fools.
