It's upsetting how little care the average intelligent and educated world citizen seems to have about this very dire ongoing development. It's accelerating alarmingly fast, and the obliviousness or blasé attitude of the general public is concerning to say the least.

Holy crap, this is getting so bad, so fast.

I don't care what stripe of writing this guy does--why does anyone think it's okay to shut down anyone's voice, and all of our collective rights to buy and read whatever the fuck we want? How does an authoritarian state help, whatever side of the imaginary intellectual fence you're on? Are people really that dumb that if it's the "other" guy now, it's not going to be you next? Jeepers.

To the people who think that "protecting" the "public" from "objectionable" material is a good idea, I'd like them to consider this:

People are killed and maimed in terrible gory traffic accidents all the time. Protectionism would then dictate that we should close all roadways immediately and declare an automobile surrender program.

Or, crazy people use the postal service to send bombs or threats sometimes. By this logic, we should change the postal service such that it only delivers grocery flyers and official government documents.

Such fun times we live in :/

This is the ugly core of it. "Objectionable material" equates to "whatever we can use to put you away if we don't like you."

SO true. I've edited my post though, bc it's not limited to NZ. Any minute now all the five eyes nation-states risk being completely under this sort of iron-boot clamp-down. We so did not sign up for this.

There's also some nazi-related song on there as well. I almost felt like he hung around at the first mosque until the damn song was over, so his "soundtrack" would sync with his "action." What a fucked up mess.

So he makes reference about 14 mins in that the NZ shooter's clip with white writing on it was on the floor of the 1st mosque before he even entered. I went back and checked, and all I see is him throwing his first gun to the floor. Is anyone else seeing what he is talking about?

I'm disturbed by the section on PG&E in that they seem to be pushing for privatization as the solution, and neglecting to mention that it might have been something more darkly implemented than an aging infrastructure and poor equipment. You don't even need to go straight to DEW and all that--the argument for so-called smart-meters being the culprit is pretty strong.

That cloudiness on the bottom of the windscreen--can you tell if it is powder/smoke residue or crazing of the glass? As someone who has only shot guns at bottles in the distance, I can't tell what's going on in the video.

To me the difference is that the officer is shooting at the part of the windscreen that is less angled, and has about four inches of space before the bullet makes impact.

NZ bozo has the gun right against the glass, at the bottom where the screen is at the most acute angle. I dunno. The physics of firearms is not my area of expertise.

The guy seems highly trained (and on major roids) and I almost wonder if he was doing that as a game? Like knowing it wouldn't shatter, and "shooting" at people like you might "squeeze their tiny head"?

The only thing i can think of, (not being a gun user) is that having the nozzle (or whatever it's called) right against the glass like that makes it impossible for the bullet to gain any "play" against the slick surface of the glass? I only say such a silly thing bc the bullets, if iirc, kind if slide along the surface and drop to the dash (I might have to watch again.)

Gun people, would you need an inch or two for the bullets to have enough momentum to be able to pierce the glass?
