So the cops have been following this maggot for years all armed and
ready to shoot.
How many more muslims do we have who are potential threats???
And has Cindy dropped the burka ?????
You attempt to show solidarity with the derabged and biggotted
offender is mispaced, George - all you demonstrate is your own
bigotry, lack of compassion, and determination to turn everything into
an attack from yourself, whether religious, racist, religious bigotry
or just stupidity.
This is a time to reflect and think about what needs to be done - and
first should be to show no tolerance in nz.general to posts such as
yours that must at some level make most New Zealanders uneasy, through
to enraged that you should assume that a criminal act can by one
person should cause us to expect similar behaviour from others of the
same race or religion. You were in my view out of line with your post,
George, and should apologise.
As always, we ask whether something should have been done - and that
is not an easy question to answer. Our current government does have a
bill before the house, but this incident highlights that the
provisions proposed would not have been applicable in this case. The
previous government decided not to give priority to similar
legislation, probably on the basis of reasonable advice at the time.
Since then, different issues have arisen, and the legislation is seen
by some as probably among the most difficult issues faced relating to
individual conscience, public order and safety of individuals. I do
not think Judith Collins needed to have been so defensive; the
previous government undoubtedly acted on relevant advice at the time.
