Put him in a pen full of hungry boars.

The extreme hate that breeds on the internet is out of control.

Terrible news such a terrorist attack.

RIP for the victims

I also heard that he might have attached additional bombs to vehicles?
How far can a sick mind go?!?

Agreed that radicalism/extremism no matter what form has no place in this world, be it from any religious group Christian, Jewish, or Muslim, any race White, Asian, or Black, or any ideology, extreme-left or extreme-right.

When it reaches this extent of violence and hatred, they are one in the same; they are terrorists.

The perpetrator was so sick in the head that he even livestreamed his attack to Facebook Live via a head-mounted camera (videos have since been removed).

Unfortunately, this is the type of hatred that will only breed another generation of hate and the cycle starts all over again.

Yes, fortunately, police said they defused a number of IEDs, so at least through that some lives were saved.

Still tragic nonetheless.

Terrorism of any stripe has no place in this world. What an utter tragedy.

Tragedy. RIP.

There cannot be any word to explain when innocent people are killed. Regardless of race, color and religion.

Very sad...

It seems that he had written a manifesto in which he hopes his actions would eventually lead to a civil war in the united states as the 2nd amendment argument heats up and spills over into mass violence. Despicable, truly.

Picked New Zealand to make a point.

No one is safe anywhere, given the country's rep as one of the safest places to live.

A true sicko...

So let's NOT allow his actions to have any bearing on our "civil war" and not post names/details/manifestos, but rather concentrate on helping those injured by the actions to heal/deal with grief.

I was on Instagram and someone posted the video footage with no comments or context. I watched it thinking it was COD. Then I realized shit was real pretty quick. Guy who rushed the shooter almost made it.

It's crazy how people do this to each other.

And people on here wonder why we have non-US members giving their opinion on US politics. What happens socially, culturally, politically, and economically in the US has global effects. And sometimes (as in this case), those effects are very, very personal.

So here we go again, everything that happens in the world is America's fault. Oh, and I've already seen that some idiot on CNN stated that this massacre was Trump's fault. What a bunch of shit.

Nothing more than using a tragedy to push a political agenda. It's sickening. Exploiting the misery of others for your own benefit/advancing your political or social agenda.

I've been to countries all over the world during my time in the military, from Europe to the middle east and also the far East. America's influence is far less pervasive or influential than you may think.

Yes, that guy almost got him, hopefully by him doing that, he helped save someone else's life.

This was pretty bad news to wake up to, half my family lives in Christchurch.
