Here We Go… New Zealand Officials Request Personal Info on Any Online User at Kiwifarms Website Who Discussed Shooter’s Manifesto

On Friday a crazed killer attacked two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and murdered 50 Muslim worshipers.

The shooter left a 74-page manifesto and broadcast his mass murder live on Facebook.

Media and political pundits immediately blamed Facebook and internet forums for the deranged mass killing.

The media later reported the killer advertised the shooting—and the fact that he would stream it live—on the message board site 8chan. According to Foreign Policy 8chan is “an image-sharing site that prides itself on hosting content deemed too offensive for the internet’s other cesspools.”

The killer, Brenton Tarrant, posted on 8chan his intentions but the post did not go live until his attack was underway“by the time you read this I should be going live.”
