All of this was part of the end goals and desires of the Christchurch shooter. In his manifesto he specifically wanted governments and regulators to escalate censorship to the point of creating civil unrest. His main goal was to accelerate a civil race war via inciting governments enact policies that would create national division in certain regions.Sharing video footage or the shooter’s manifesto of the Christchurch, New Zealand massacre is outlawed in New Zealand. Not only that, but even making memes using still images, photos, or video footage is also illegal in the region.
ABC News is reporting that at least six people have been charged with “illegally” sharing the video contents with other people. 44-year-old Philip Arps pleaded guilty to two counts of distributing the video of the mosque massacre and will remain in jail until June 14th, where he could face up to 14-years in prison for sharing the video with over 30 people.
