Was this also timed for the mass school student climate protests that were occurring simultaneously in New Zealand and Australia I wonder? School Students protesting climate change inaction were evacuated from cathedral square in Christchurch. Here in Australia, the protests are rapidly being pushed off the top headlines. Right wing extremism at its worst

It's almost like humans fallibility exists all over the world.

I'm sure many will be saddened to find out it isn't unique to america. How ever will they cope with that.

Weapons like that are near impossible to obtain in Australia or New Zealand.

Who is behind this?

This is nuts. So Sad!

nz cops dont have guns of any kind baring their airport police who carry glocks and have bushmaster ar-15s in their cars . en.wikipedia.org...


eapons New Zealand Police officers do not routinely carry firearms; officers only carry OC spray (pepper spray), batons and tasers. The Diplomatic Protection Squad and Airport officers are the only officers who routinely carry firearms.[18][19] The majority of New Zealand Police officers are trained in the use of the Glock 17 pistol and Bushmaster XM15 M4A3 Patrolman rifle and wear a holster attachment for the pistol to enable carriage of the firearm if necessary.[20] Senior officers can approve carrying of these firearms located in stations if necessary. In addition, since 2012, frontline vehicles have had a locked box in the passenger foot-well containing a loaded and holstered Glock 17, and in the rear of the vehicle, there is at least one Bushmaster rifle secured in a case together with ballistic vests. The vehicles are fitted with glass break car alarms. Each officer in the vehicle carries a set of vehicle keys and a set of safe keys.[21][22] Officers are required to advise their supervisor or communications if a firearm is to be retrieved from their vehicle and carried.[23] The Police Association has stated carrying of handguns is inevitable. In January 2013, a Waikato officer was attacked by at least five men after he deployed his OC spray and Taser. His radio was taken from him and his pistol was misplaced during the attack. The Police Association's request for routine carrying of firearms for all officers after this incident was dismissed by the Police Commissioner.[24] The current firearm training and issuing policy has been criticised. Not all police officers receive regular firearm training nor do their vehicles contain a secured firearm. In October 2015, unarmed officers at a routine police checkpoint at Te Atatu South who pursued a vehicle that sped off from the checkpoint were shot at from the offender's vehicle.[25] In December 2015, the Police Association referring to the incident requested that all frontline officers receive firearm training and that their vehicle contain a secured firearm; this was rejected.[26] In July 2015, the Police Commissioner announced that Tasers would be routinely carried by police officers.[27][28] Tasers were first trialled in 2006 and in 2010 were rolled out throughout New Zealand with all frontline vehicles containing a secured Taser in a locked box, providing ready access for officers, if needed, to a Taser model X26 or X2.[27][29][30][31][32] In 2012, figures showed that a 'disproportionate number of people' targeted by police Tasers were mental health patients.[33] Police officers receive regular training called Police Integrated Tactical Training (PITT) in a three-tiered tactical response structure, as Level 1, 2 or 3 responders. All officers are trained as Level 3 responders in defensive tactics, handcuffs, OC spray, baton and taser. Of the approximate 8,100 frontline officers, 5,700 receive training with the pistol and rifle as Level 1 and 2,100 receive training with the pistol only as Level 2.[34] The New Zealand Police annually release a report of their use of force including OC spray, Tasers and firearms.[35] All officers wear a stab vest named Stab Resistant Body Armour (SRBA) based on a design similar to that used by United Kingdom Police with a ballistics vest able to be worn over the stab vest.[36][37]
so until those cops show up hes in a target rich environment with mostly un armed cops .....
