Very sad. The murder of innocent people is horrible and evil. Here is a recitation of the facts, by REUTERS:
WELLINGTON, March 15 (Reuters) – At least one gunman killed 49 people and wounded more than 20 during Friday prayers at two New Zealand mosques in the country’s worst ever mass shooting which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern condemned as terrorism.
A gunman broadcast live footage on Facebook of the attack on one mosque in the city of Christchurch, mirroring the carnage played out in video games, after publishing a “manifesto” in which he denounced immigrants.
New Zealand was placed on its highest security threat level, Adern said, adding that four people in police custody, three men and one woman, held extremist views but had not been on any police watchlists.
What is also horrible is the rush to blame conservatives and “deplorables” for the actions of a crazy person. Or Donald Trump. Or MAGA followers.
I just watched this Steven Crowder video, and he makes the case well:
