Just one thing I would challenge:
It should be considered that this young man is an angry echo of Isis at its peak. He was radicalised at a time the Caliphate spanned enormous territory. Since then, Isis has crumbled. It exists in pockets. Its focus is on survival and far less on exporting terror across the world.

I say bull shite to that.

The Merkins claimed that the Taliban were dead as well, and we all know about that.

Islamic extremists are just pissed off losers looking for some mates to stir hell with.

ISIS will grow again. Islam is full of splinter groups going way back.

Wtf this happened today???
Yeah.

ISIS follower. Stabbed six people. Gunned down by the Special tactics group who were following him covertly.

VIdeo was harrowing on fb, you could not see him, but seeing all the people running and yelling and then the guns firing in rapid succession right in the middle of Countdown near the tills.....they blasted him with everything.

Dead as a dodo.

He is dead Gizzy.

Special Tactics unloaded about eight rounds into him at close range.
I know, I meant what they should have done It reminds me of a guy who shot a Cop in the Southern US. he wouldn't surrender so they shot him 45 times. When asked why 45 shots the Sherriff replied they ran out of ammunition. Te Coroner declared it natural causes, when you are shot 45 times, naturally you die.

I've just been watching the full press conference and the Prime Minister clearly states that she could not give out certain information based on the law and privacy acts. Then the stupid reporters often go back and ask her the same questions and she cannot answer them and is clearly pissed off. They don't get it. They are just dumb idiots.

I know they are just doing their jobs but when she says she can't tell them the full time line and why, what, where, when, and how, they need to listen to her.

That's along the lines of what the article posted on here says by Bruce. It's the bloody law. You'd think the reporters would have a grasp of that. If she was to ignore that she'd be exactly what all these conspiracy theorists say she is and be acting like a communist or whatever they say she is.
Hopefully they update the laws, he should've been deported the first time he was charged.

This prick emigrated here by choice. He has shown himself to be not a fit and proper person to have citizenship. We have shown we can grow our own fuckwits perfectly well. Deport his sorry arse, the laws are there to do it.
Ironically, he tried to leave to join up with ISIS and we stopped him at the airport 🤯

The man reportedly told a worshipper at his mosque he planned to join Isis in Syria, then was caught at Auckland International Airport after booking a one-way ticket to Syria in May 2017.

Reposting to this thread:

Last year, the Crown had sought to prosecute S under the Terrorism Suppression Act 2002, but a High Court judge ruled that preparing a terrorist attack was not in itself an offence under the legislation.

During his trial, S told the jury: "You're worried about one knife, I am telling you I will buy 10 knives. It's about my rights."


Whats the point of a Terrorism Suppression Act if it doesn’t cover preparing (not just planning) a terror attack?

1 of my mates reckons he should've been forced to have mental health help rather than just being under watch. What's your guys thoughts on that? Is it possible to change an extremists mindset?

Remember there is suppression orders over a lot of information so as usual, a reminder to be careful what we post…

Difficult. The government is wrestling over the hate speech legislation and it is for guys like this.

But as they are finding, it’s a fine line when it impacts free speech. It’s very hard to change people views on life, especially religion where you have revolved your ethics, morals, lifestyle, etc around it and basically given years of your life to something bigger. It becomes so embedded that it becomes unviable to admit you could be wrong.

Honestly when someone’s already caught planning an act like this, there has to be laws where they can hold these guys, until they are not a risk anymore. This was a failure of our legal system.

There was an Order for Psych assessment, it was never done. Corrections have offered no comment as to why not.

I think I counted 7 ;) , we need a train spotter emoji.:D

Seriously though those cops are well trained, that is a lot of lead, not quite Bonnie and Clyde, but they must have really been pumped up.

My guess is the cunning little shite picked Countdown New Lynn, during lockdown, because if I were him, and wanted to lose my tail that would be the best supermarket I know to do it.

Those cops would have known that straight away when they lost sight of him.

The adrenalin would have been pumping.

I think they did a fantastic job.

I though the same myself...but...as you know the psychiatrists have a professional method of working out insanity...this fecker wasn't insane... just plain bad.

So the psychiatrists would have been asked to bend their ethics which I think is a big ask.

Now judges are a different breed...they bend ethics all the time.
