  103. What we know about the terror attack suspect

    One person has been charged with murder in connection with the terror attack on two mosques in New Zealand that left at least 49 people dead.

    Here’s what we know about the suspect:

    He is 28 years old.

    Just before the attack, an account believed to belong to the gunman posted a link to an 87-page white nationalist manifesto online. The unsigned manifesto is filled with anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim sentiments, as well as explanations for an attack.

    In the manifesto, he identifies himself as a white man, born in Australia, and lists the white nationalists who have inspired him.

    He will appear in court Saturday morning local time.

      “A white-nationalist manifesto
      Before the shooting, someone appearing to be the gunman posted links to a white-nationalist manifesto on Twitter and the online forum 8chan. The 8chan post included a link to what appeared to be the gunman’s Facebook page, where he said he would also broadcast live video of the attack.

      The Twitter posts showed weapons covered in the names of past military generals and men who have recently carried out mass shootings.

      In his manifesto, he identified himself as a 28-year-old man born in Australia and listed his white nationalist heroes.

      Writing that he had purposely used guns to stir discord in the United States over the Second Amendment’s provision on the right to bear arms, he also declared himself a fascist. “For once, the person that will be called a fascist, is an actual fascist,” he wrote.” NYTimes Report

      White men & their notion of White supremacy, makes them

      THE MOST DANGEROUS TERRORIST in our country, and now worldwide.

      So don’t fall for the system of jailing folks for traffic stops, and killing them cold-dead, shooting them in the back, while unarmed.
