    Unbelievably insane loss of life.
    This is what happens when intolerance is encouraged and hate rhetoric is pumped up.
    'Ban the Burqa' my arse.
    Absolutely sick

    A friend of mine, also a red, is in Christchurch for work and is stuck in the city as the flights are all grounded.

    Very very sad state of affairs, though I am only surprised that this has happened in New Zealand.

    I fear it won’t be the last similar incident.

    Absolutely shocking. Just watched the video that was broadcast. Can't believe what I've just seen.

    It sounds like he's been planning it for 2 years, in Australia though, not New Zealand. Hes only had that mosque planned for a few month.

    Surprised it hasnt happened sooner to be honest, our tolerance and wish for diversity has been met in some quarters by intolerance and hatred and murder directed towards us. It was only a matter of time before some nutter took it upon himself to exact revenge. RIP to the poor people murdered and condolences to their families.

    A mate a mine as just sent me the video, I opened it not realising what it was, I’m utterly speechless and sick to the stomach, it’s genuinely made me ill.

    Just seen it too Boss, words fail me they really do. Poor blokes just went to the Mosque with their kids, just a normal day. Sat here at work with tears in my eyes. Awful.

    Unbelievable.. What's wrong with these people... Having just read what's taken place I feel numb... There's no need for this in today's society.. A total waste of life... For what... An ideology of white supremacy.. Not in my name... Rip the victims condolences to all their families... Speedy recovery to those that may have survived
    So much hate and aggression in this world... Why oh why..

    A horrific & sad day.

    I would say some of the sick people that post on here with muslim hate messages should see the end result of their words.
    I won't tag anyone, but I'd like some of them to have the balls to say how wrong this is.

    Tommy Robinson fans are no friends of mine.

    The sad thing is that NZ is one of the most tolerant places in the world. All races and nationalities get along great, they're all friendly to each other. I was in Christchurch 3 years ago and the friendliness towards each other no matter what religion was palpable. It just shows that even an idyllic country like New Zealand is not safe from this extremist nutcases.

    A bit off bbc site...
    The names of men convicted of killing Muslims and migrants are written on the suspect's weaponry.
    One item had the words "For Rotherham" written on it, a reference to a child abuse scandal in the UK,

    It takes a truly special kind of idiot to think that reminding a young lass what she went through and killing innocent people in her name - putting the blood of 49 people on her hands - could ever do anything other than cause her more harm.

    I've just seen the video, I think he streamed it live . What is truly shocking is that one coward can inflict that kind of suffering on innocent people . My heart and prayers are with the families involved .

    It's a disgusting act of terrorism. It's beyond my comprehension that anyone can be so fuelled by blind hatred that they can go out and kill innocent people for no reason besides irrational hate.

    I hope there is a special place in hell for this disgusting terrorist and all those who support his actions.

    Not wanting to be controversial but pretty strong accusations there. I am struggling to recall 'Muslim hate messages' on here.
    Surely, Gally or anyone in Admin would remove them if they were posted.
    Haters will hate. In spite of all the claims that Right wing politics are the cause of all this my belief is that the type of people who commit these atrocities have always been around. As a proportion of the population I don't think the numbers have grown. However as the poplulation increases the number of these people willing to carry out theses acts has.
    Conroversially or not, I don't believe right wing politics necessarily increases the frequency of these criminal acts. Promoting racially motivated violence through social media is not like advertising cars or chocolate. A sane rational person is NOT going to be influenced to the point of carrying out massacres like these simply through reading about racists like Tommy Robinson in the papers or reports on TV. It takes more than the ground swell of opinion in small sections of society to turn a tolerant nation into a baying mob supporting acts of violence against other sectors.
    I genuinely believe the 20s and 30s Germany situation could not recur, in spite of those who argue it is being repeated. Social media and instant news via TV result in instant condemnation with people instantly aware of what has happened. Whilst ever the overwhelming majority see these acts of senseless violence for what they are.
    Take recent events at football matches where a referee or player incenses the crowd. 99.99% of the crowd , whilst angry will shout and complain but only one feels the need to run onto the pitch to enact violence against someone. So it is with society on general. Some people have genuine concerns about mass migration. Again 99.999% of the population it is not about racism. For the tiny minority it is and it is those who carry out these acts in the same way as 99.999% of Muslims are just ordinary people wanting to live life, work and bring up a family. And for a tiny minority they feel the need to carry out violent acts of 'revenge' agains an enemy as they see it. Violence breeds violence
