New Zealand Shooting: Parkland Students Heartbroken for Their Friends in Christchurch

‘My first thought was our kids and how it would impact our kids, and my second thought was our friends in New Zealand,’ a Stoneman Douglas teacher said.

By Kalhan Rosenblatt | 15 March 2019

NBC NEWS — When Isaac Christian saw the news Friday that a gunman had entered two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, he frantically began sending text messages.

In July 2018, Christian was among the 28 students and four chaperones who traveled from Parkland, Florida, to the University of Canterbury in Christchurch — a visit that was intended to help the students cope with the aftermath of the mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

“It’s kind of like the same feelings as when our school shooting happened. It felt so surreal,” Christian, 17, a junior at Stoneman Douglas, said of the latest massacre.

One friend wrote to Christian that she had been locked down in a library. Christian said that message brought him back to his own memory of hiding in a classroom to survive the Stoneman Douglas shootings that killed 17 people.

“It’s the same way I felt because I was stuck in a room and didn’t know what was going on … it messes with my mind because it’s so hard to process that something that happened in my home and my city happened there,” Christian said. […]

5 Comments on New Zealand Shooting: Parkland Students Heartbroken for Their Friends in Christchurch

  1. It’s increasingly thought that the NZ ‘massacre video’ is fake … as noted by many including counter-terrorism expert Scott Bennett, there is an astonishing lack of damage or noise from walls etc getting hit with high-speed bullets, a lack of human screams and body movements as people are shot, etc … No wonder they are trying to ban people viewing it, it seems fake as hell to many people, including those in the gunfight business. Whoever actually died in this incident, may have been ‘pre-killed’.

    Israeli press admits that Brenton Tarrant was in Israel; travelling to North Korea, Pakistan, Turkey etc, the intel agencies obviously knew him.

    Veterans Today in several articles claims that, per Russian intel, Tarrant is actually age 42, part of a Jewish family that emigrated from Palestine to the Anglo countries in the 1940s … and a highly trained-in-Israel killer-commando type. There are unanswered questions as to how he could have obtained his USA-commando-style guns & high tech optic gear in NZ, even with a licence. Fits with the hush-hush in NZ, Tarrant in isolation, no visitors allowed, being his own lawyer etc.

    Here, an image with two stills from the video, you can see a ‘shooting victim’ apparently getting cold feet, putting on socks a minute after ‘being shot’

    The first frame, at about 6:49, is when Tarrant is entering the building and beginning to ‘kill people’ – the victim who falls in a hallway at a side door entrance, has bare feet, as is often seen inside a mosque, where shoes & sandals are typically prohibited

    The second frame, at about 8:41, is when Tarrant is heading along the same hallway in reverse direction … same ‘victims’ are lying in the hallway at the same side door entrance … but the ‘victim’ formerly with bare feet, now has socks on

    For those adults who might want to evaluate the video-game-like 17 minutes and see a ‘shot’ man on the ground quickly get his socks back on, and sprays of bullets seeming to do nothing to easily-damaged plaster walls, it is still online here

    Aangirfan is tracking a lot of the oddities on her blog

    • Solid rundown of the dicey aspects of New Zealand event.

      I would offer that beyond no blood splatter or holes in the walls, several dozen rounds were fired in the direction of the two end windows without breaking or impacting them. You could claim they are bullet proof windows, but does a bullet proof window produce no sound or vibration and emerge unblemished when hit with multiple bullets? Test firing shows window is damaged, shows effects and emits impact noise.

      Watch at 6:04- 6:06 of analysis video and also at 7:12-7:13 he is sweeping left and firing directly in direction of window. At 9:00 you can see “bodies” piled up in front of the window. He was spraying from a backed off position, how could he miss the window? Also at 9:00 just stop the video, and notice no blood wall splatter and no wall bullet impacts- pristine. This AFTER he returned from the car with the other weapon for additional firing.

      As man approached the mosque entrance he ignores the few people standing on the sidewalk out front and the people didn’t even react to him holding a gun.

      There is a magazine on the floor in the entry hallway that is there before the shooter enters for the 1st time. He picks it up and uses a minute or two later and claims that he dropped it when driving away from the scene. The magazine was in the mosque on the hallway floor before he entered.

      There are two manikins laying in a pile of bodies on the right side of the room. The manikins are missing their heads. There is no blood where the heads should have been.

      He shoots at cars in the parking lot that presumably have people in them. No sign of damage can be seen when bullets hit the cars.

      There is only one shooting that appears somewhat real, but for some reason, the person shot appears to have removed her shoes an placed them neatly by her head before lying down in a gutter. The shoe removal would to have happened in a span of 5 to 7 seconds where you can’t see her after being hit by the first shot. In other words, it didn’t like it could have really happened the way it was depicted.

      Two shotgun blasts at the front windshield as the shooter drives down the road do not blow out the window or even leave marks on the window or dashboard, but the third shotgun blast blows out a side window. There appears to be no reason to shoot out the windows.

      • That link above may not last long being hosted on Zuck’s Fakebook

        For military and law enforcement who view the Tarrant 17 minutes of mosque ‘shooting’, seems a key item proving to them the video is fake, is what the above link mentions as #1, the ejected brass cartridge cases disappearing into vapour, also covered on Kyle’s site:

        With the woman in the gutter begging ‘help me’, the apparent blood-splatter – something otherwise rarely seen in the video – may be a release of coloured fake-blood fluid she controlled with her hand

        It is clear why the New Zealand and Australian authorities are seeking to suppress viewing of the video, as firearms professionals quickly come to the conclusion it is all a giant hoax and lie. And this means that the New Zealand government is participating at a very high level.

  2. Anyone else think this false flag event is a test run to guage the reaction because they are planning on implementing similar measures in terms of suppressing evidence to the public the next time they run a false flag Op here stateside?

  3. Intentional confusion in ChristChurch, and the ‘conspiracy theory’ smear –

    Every serious analyst reviewing the New Zealand Brenton Tarrant mosque shooting video, finds credibility-nullifying elements of hoax and fraud – the ejected rifle brass casings turning into vapour, obvious computer graphics; the lack of damage in walls and windows from rifle fire; the lack of physical reactions & screams in bodies being shot; the barefoot victim shot down, having socks on two minutes later, etc

    But it’s not easy to accept this, as the next logical question is, how you can get an entire Muslim community to keep quiet about a ‘fake’ shooting, whilst ‘crisis actors’ give interviews etc

    The logical conclusion is that, as Veterans Today suggests, there was a real mosque massacre by one or two gov-tied killers, and a fake video was made to sow confusion, and marginalise anyone who notices the fakery.

    With real Muslims dead, all you need to shut up real witnesses, is to have one or two corrupt Muslim leaders, tell their flock they are dishonouring martrys by trying to talk to media, and Allah wills the situation as is, so shut up. The same Muslim leaders who let the interior of the mosque be filmed earlier, as backdrop for the fabricated Tarrant show.

    NZ media would dismiss as ‘crazy’ and not even report, any wounded or witness Muslim who tried to argue against the video – which they maybe haven’t seen anyway, given NZ censorship.

    The ‘white nationalist’ boogeyman is obviously very long-term useful & narrative-friendly, to prop up as alleged shooter. At the same time, there seems meagre ground to argue the gov-mercenary shooter angle, and the ‘truther’ crowd is distracted, and made to look obsessive and foolish quibbling about obvious video fraud.

    The value of confusion is high to government operations. Consider 9-11, with five widely-spread stories about what took down the New York World Trade Centre towers on 11 September 2001, four stories all deflecting from whatever is the real truth:

    (1) Official story, planes, jet fuel, etc – Denounced as impossible by thousands of architects & engineers
    (2) Conventional pre-set explosives, linked to the ‘Israeli art students’ photographed by the New York Times, with boxes whose industrial codes showed them to be bomb detonator components (my vote)
    (3) Nano-thermite advanced explosives
    (4) Destructive energy rays which the government can use from a distance
    (5) 1950s-60s recycled ‘mini nuclear weapons’ detonated inside the towers
