    There's definitely something in the Venn diagram though with videogames. Sorry my dudes, but all these honkey supremacists seem to be at least linked to our shared interests

    Apparently, he was trying to do a Christchurch style massacre but was denied entry into a synagogue. Angry, he went random and shot a woman and got a guy (I think kebab shop)... It's something like that anyway.

    Well yeah but also what young lonely guy doesn't play video games? I bet he had Netflix too, doesn't mean it caused him to shoot up the place.

    There's not really an online community forum for Netflix users though. Or if there is, there's barely any goading of people to perform and record atrocities

    I think the distinction is that videogames don't cause this kind of thing, but fans of videogames do.

    The link between playing games and violence is unproven but the link between playing games and being an absolute twat is undeniable.

    Yeah some guy at my work, but he's also a massive creeper who is incredibly awkward to be around and can't have a conversation unless it's about him in some way.

    I found them to be selected screenshots and not, I don't think the most graphic parts.

    I heard a report that he threw a hand grenade at a door and it bounced off it back towards him

    Ok I assumed the hidden media was the video and not screenshots. Still though, that thread is peppered with those screens including what I assume is a pic of the shooter.

    Especially given he's still alive you don't think people fawning over it like that twatter thread does (full name and all as well) will be exactly what he wanted? Fame and notoriety? Why do you think NZ kept his name and images out of the media (which I thought was very good)?

    As for reporting a tweet, lol.

    I understand, agree with your points but just don't find the Twitter thread to be as heavy as that. I suppose whatever informations are always going to be for someone's agenda (I'm not condoning). Even if it be a name and a mugshot. We should care in the informations we're informed.

    When I first saw the tweet, I didn't get a "view sensitive information' prompt. I tend to steer clear of that too and didn't think was that bad.

    If you find reporting a tweet somewhat humourous , maybe you could try this - https://www.parliament.uk/get-involved/contact-your-mp/

    Reports saying that the death toll would have been much higher, but his guns were home-made and kept jamming. This ought to be picked up on by gun control advocates - look how much harder it is to commit mass murder when you can't just go into a supermarket and buy a military rifle.

    The death toll would have been extremely high if the synagogue didn’t have security, which the likes of Jackie Walker claim is unnecessary and all part of Jews weaponising antisemitism.

    There is an issue with the toxicity of the hard core gaming community. If you live the majority of your life in front of a screen either playing games or in 4chan type forums it's going to have an effect on your psychological state. It may not be the primary driver but it's a contributing factor.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/german-synagogue-shooting-halle-attack-latest-stephan-balliet-suspect-neo-nazi-a9150451.html

    Balliet’s livestream and online documents seen by The Independent suggest he was deeply embedded in online forums, gaming culture and had a fascination with Japan.

    Balliet said he had “originally planned to storm a mosque or an antifa ‘culture’ centre” which he thought would be less secure than the synagogue targeted.


    Speaking in English at the start of his livestream, Balliet said he was a Holocaust denier and said he believed feminism was ”the cause of declining birth rates in the west”.



    Can't remember who but make sure you have a thorough talking to with your 15 year old.

    @Load_2.0

    He called himself a “weeb”, denoting an obsession with Japanese culture, and an “anon” – the term used to describe users of 4chan, 8chan and other imageboards that were used by previous mass shooters to share manifestos.

    One of three documents Balliet posted online before the attack was entitled “manifesto” in Japanese and included an image of a sexualised anime “cat-girl”.

    Yup. I agree.

    Without wanting to be accused of "whataboutery": some Labour dickhead getting their misguided knickers in a twist about Gaza and bankers is one thing. Actual gun wielding Nazis is another.

    Both on the same continuum though. The Nazis didn’t go straight to death camps.
