Alleged attacker boasted on social media before attack

A male who claimed to be the shooter at today’s attack in Christchurch send out messages on social media prior to the event.

His postings on Facebook and Twitter are filled with messages of racism, hate and praise for those who conducted mass shootings in other countries.

He told followers it was “time to stop shitposting and time to make a real life effort” to “attack the invader” and said he would stream his attack live.

The messages indicate a clearly planned and premeditated action of a white supremacist.

Scoop will not be linking or further reporting on the messages of a hate-filled bigot without careful thought.
