New Zealand's response to the deadly mosque shootings has been swift and strict. Following the ban on most semiautomatic weapons which came into effect last week, the courts have turned their attention to people who illegally shared the video of the attacks which left 50 dead. Six people appeared court Monday charged with illegally redistributing the video which the gunman livestreamed as he shot worshippers. Christchurch District Court Judge Stephen O’Driscoll denied bail to 44-year-old businessman Philip Arps and an unnamed 18-year-old suspect, while the four others aren't in custody. The teenager is charged with sharing the livestream video with the caption “target acquired.” The charge of supplying or distributing objectionable material carries a penalty of up to 14 years in prison. The footage of the attack and the manifesto written and by suspect Brenton Harrison Tarrant were both banned by New Zealand’s chief censor.

I wonder why the authorities there don’t want that specific video to be seen by anyone. Several websites have cucked since the video was released. Wtf is even going on? Out of all gore videos to ban, you choose some virtual reality Call of Duty re-enactment?
Because the Kiwi government wishes you stopped asking questions like "how did it take half an hour for cops to show up when there were several police departments near the mosque?"

I wanted to compare jail times to other crimes and this article lists pretty much everybody who ever received a significant sentence. Most murderers get 20-30 years. Guy commits 95 sexual assaults and gets 22.

I really doubt these guys will get the full 14 because those numbers are for child porn distribution and we’ll have a Dankula type situation where they make a big deal and end up with a small fine. At least I hope so.

This is like how the NCAA is furious it can't intimidate Ohio State, so when OSU gets caught in a recruiting scandal and just says "where do we mail the check?"..... they sanction Appalachian State thrice as hard for a process violation. Just to show you WHO is in CHARGE.

This is a government taking out it's frustrations on people who can't fight back..... and I don't even know why since they CAUGHT the guy who did it and took him in alive.... you usually don't get that luxury with spree shooters.

Yeah, that’s true. The last time I’ve ever heard of any government trying to take down a video that wasn’t CP or copyrighted music/TV shows was back in 2005 when these two faggots stuffed a cat in a hamster cage, took it in a field, doused it in some green liquid, and set it on fire. It was what spawned the NEDM fad on YTMND. The German authorities tried to scrub the video from the internet, and it was even what lead to ogrish and b0g(dot).org being shut down IIRC.

The fact that they have a Chief Censor is a fucking harrowing thing I was not aware of. God, at least be subtle about it.

There are some theories floating about that the video's length alone is telling of the PD's stupidly "impressive" +30 minute response time. If the entire population finds out that their defenders can do fuck all in that timeframe, things could get out of hand. Sadly, beefing up your police force takes money and amending laws so they can be effective takes balls. Both of these being things the NZ officials lack.

Seriously: Let's not forget that the higher ups in their PD said it was legitimately an amazing response time. For all the shit they give the burgers, it's funny their cops don't show up to a mass shooting in the time it takes for an American squad to arrive at some forsaken ghetto.

New Zealand is a small island nation in the middle of nowhere. Nothing ever happens there. Of course they’re gonna freak out after a shooting. It’s like putting a sheltered homeschool white kid in a public school in Detroit (back when they had schools). They freak out and can’t understand why no one else gives a shit.

Give those provincial sheep fuckers some time to calm down.

I mean you can watch videos of a brazillian cartel carve a little boy like a turkey and rip out his heart, watch a man with a skinned face desperately try to stop it with the stumps of his wrist but 50 people die in bloodless carnage like an FPS and that's where NZ draws the line?

Look, it's a tragedy, but ffs what a bunch of pussies.

Try to imagine living in a country where the government can just swoop in and deprive you of your basic human rights or charge you with crimes that aren't even crimes.

As an American I can't really fathom that but it's an interesting thought experiment from an intellectual perspective.
