Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

NZ authorities are taking draconian measures to prevent people from viewing or circulating the livestream video the shooter broadcast.

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

Livestreaming videos assures nutters an audience of millions and instant infamy. Maybe social media should disable this capability so future whack jobs won't be able to livestream their atrocities and these sick videos never see the light of day except at jury trials. https://www.businessinsider.com...

Especially the claims that it is a "false flag" attack designed by (insert name of ev...

Re: New Zealand Mosque Shootings

One of the four people arrested in the aftermath of the incident was a dumb-ass who dressed in cammies and went out carrying a gun to pick up his child from school (he was afraid for her safety). That seems incomprehensibly stupid to me, and he's lucky the police showed great restraint when they enc...

Re: The Coming Civil War

I'm seeing more incendiary rhetoric about a coming civil war, which I can't post because of the no-politics rule. But it does seem like the level of bombast and vitriol just keeps getting cranked higher.
