Why are they not terrorists? There is nothing to suggest that this isn’t a terror attack.

It depends on the motives. E.g. if the person had a grievance against that particular mosque, or people in it, then it wouldn't be terrorism. If the purpose of the attack was to make the general Muslim population scared, or for some other political reason, then it's terrorism.

My guess - terrorism. Confirmed by Jacinda Ardern.

Two mosques attacked so less likely to be a grievance against a particular mosque.
Terrible business, I do not know how to properly express sympathy for so many victims.

Simply stunned that this is being celebrated online by some, and the live stream was shared on social media by one of the attackers.

I'm not that surprised. It's going to bring out the cream of the f00knuggets in the coming days, clamouring to be heard.

Same after every terrorist attack.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

It's reported now that 49 people were killed in the Christchurch terrorist attack.

My heart goes out to the people of Christchurch. The city has suffered terrible natural disasters over the last few years, and now this tragedy.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

It is Friday, nothing humorous to post but I am just mulling over how opposites seem to converge and adopt the same tactics and strategies.

In Christchurch it looks like the far right did an ISIS copy cat terror attack shooting unarmed victims in a holy place and loading vehicles with explosive devices.
Except they did not commit suicide at the end; next time hopefully.

I think it’s only correct and proper that 22 yards apologises on behalf of all Australians.

Of all the clueless, moronic things you have posted, this is among the top (or bottom) for idiocy. Let me know if I need to spell out why.

Speaking of moronic posts, I wonder why you didn't post your stock refrain: "New Zealand gun laws must be tighter!!!11!!" I'm sure you had no idea about gun laws in NZ, but lack of knowledge has never stopped you in the past.

That’s because guns don’t kill people, Australian white supremacists do
