    Outside the building, there was anger.
    "He's a coward... He was laughing. Just put me, for 15 minutes, with him in one cell and then we'll see if he can laugh anymore," said Aziz Abdul - who became a local hero after defending the Linwood mosque with an Eftpos machine during the live-streamed shootings.
    "It was very hard for us even just to look at him."

    So glad he is going to stand trial and, hopefully, suffer the full extent of NZ's justice system.


    Judge Mander said in a statement on Friday: "No issue arises regarding the defendant's fitness to plead, to instruct counsel, and to stand his trial. A fitness hearing is not required."
    He is currently being kept in isolation at the Auckland Prison in Paremoremo, considered New Zealand's toughest prison.

    I think the pics they are showing are from his first court appearance in March. Captions say "Brenton Tarrant in his first court appearance in March". And they have him in isolation now.

    He appeared by video link today.

    Absolute ****** for going for not guilty.

    I think he's going to turn it into a circus like the Anders Breivik trial with numerous stupid requests and defiant slogans.

    You get the impression that all this is real life 'trolling' to him with his whole act of streaming and the 'manifesto'. The trial is just adding to it further.

    Yes, I agree. He is a white supremacist and will probably try to use his court case to further exhibit his far right ideologies.

    NZ is not the country to do that in. They are about as far away from far right as a country can get. It won't be tolerated there.

    'Love always wins', what a beautiful sentiment.
    There is a certainty to that statement.

    51st Christchurch terror attack victim named
    June 14, 2019

    "Christchurch: The 51st victim of the Christchurch mosque shootings battled for his life for 48 days before succumbing to his injuries.
    Zekeriya Tuyan, 46, died on May 2 – taking the death toll from the March 15 shootings to 51.

    Shot in the chest at the Masjid Al Noor on Deans Ave, he remained in a critical condition in Christchurch Hospital after the attack, battling fevers and infections.

    Tuyan can be named for the first time after Justice Cameron Mander lifted the suppression on the names of some of the victims, after the accused gunman pleaded not guilty to all charges in court on Friday."

    Absolutely. The only problem he has is it won't be live streamed and he won't be given the opportunity to use the trial as a platform for his ideology. Apparently local news outlets have agreed on a set of guidelines for reporting on the case which include not reporting on his white supremacist views.

    I’ve read that no-one has ever been sentenced to life without the possibility of parole in NZ and that the longest previous sentence for murder was 30 years without chance of release for a man convicted of a triple murder. The judge has the discretion to remove the possibility of parole if ... let's say "when" he is found guilty.

    He deserves to leave prison in a box, a cardboard box.
