    The video is horrific man. The official statement about it is disgraceful.

    You chose to watch a video of people being murdered? That's * up. It is certainly way beyond my comprehension.

    I have to hold my hands up here and admit that this attack has done nothing about my own prejudice against white Australians. My first reaction was to say you would expect this in Australia and then you see he is a white Australian. I know that not every white Australian isn't a racist *, but I naturally have inbuilt doubts...

    You make it sound that I watched it for entertainment values. I watched planes flying into the twin towers and people jumping off them. Is that * up too?

    * like Trump and the scumbag media who have helped create this culture of hatred sending their deepest condolences has me gritting my teeth.

    Watching some stuff about the far-right in NZ and Australia and I'm just surprised no one saw this coming.

    Nothing wrong with viewing it Vin. Maybe not for the squeemish but we see plenty of video of daily atrocity in Syria and Palestine. Also gruesome viewing in world at war or Vietnam documentaries. We are living in a harsh world and it will be caught on camera as they are in use everywhere. Ethiopia 84 was really hard watching millions starve. I'm in your camp because when it's reported you visualise it also.

    Yep. I can't understand how anyone can watch it or why. Each to their own then. I think it is a problem with modern society, this desensitisation of murder, death and extreme violence.
    I guess that's for another thread.

    Seen 2 video's on whatsapp..

    * me man it's grim. I'm quite squeamish as well had to turn off the flight 1 going down the other day as well as I'm petrified of flying..

    Guy's an animal. Guy's rather. He's casually driving down the main road after shooting through his window laughing I think through his mirror with music on..

    Has to be military trained? Literally didn't miss anyone he shot at inside or outside..

    Watched the video and honestly say that fella is one * nutjob! Just calmly walking about like that taking innocent people out was horrific. Even the part where he blasted the women twice outside, left her to die then while she was crying for help, walked straight over and put two into her head! All i could think of was dirty rotten *! If this was against muslims, what i cant get my head around is he then proceeded to drive away, stopping the car and taking more people out well away from the mosque. Wasnt going to watch the video but theres a curiosity that us humans have that makes us click ply. Its not a blood * or anything like that, could be something educational for our own saftey incase it ever happens near us. Tell you one thing, i wont be waiting about if i hear shots getting fired near me ever again. When growing up during the troubles, i seen many a gun man firing a gun and there was also this curiosity, waiting to see it and running to see the victims but now, id GTF out of there because these new attacks are about taking as many out as possible. * that!! As for the victims of this attack, was sad to see them losing their lives in this way. No one deserves to die in this way!

    As said the promotion/acceptance of racist/xenophobic views needs to be tackled head on by the vast majority of us who are not prepared to accept these views becoming any more 'normalised' than they have already become.






    What an embarrassing post. When an event like this happens normal people state their sadness at the needless loss of life yet your dot joining 'brain' kicks in, you just cant help yourself can you.

    You know, I have to be honest with you. I am absolutely shocked with the images I've seen today. But maybe not as shocked as I should be. Maybey that Is * up. I dunno.

    That's what I am getting at. A friend said the same thing in a 'WhatsApp' group where someone shared the video. Society has gone wrong somewhere.
