Well within the frame for Home Detention, but that was denied by the judge.

Making an example of him. Child pornography busts have had much more lenient sentences.

Indeed

He is appealing apparently so am guessing it will be reduced.

Apparently he is in segregation, so he doesn't even get a warm welcome from our friendly gang guests

I'm not in favor of child pornography and I sure as Hell am not in favor of Islam in New Zealand. But snuff films are pretty high on the depravity scale no matter who the victims are and this one is a doozy.

I'd be very surprised, but we'll see.

The average sentence for murdering a child is a touch over 4 years, so there's definitely an issue there.

I imagine "segregated" in Chch prison just means he's in with all the other white blokes, where he'll be a hero. Any of the Harris gang inside right now?

No worse than some documentaries. Our 6pm network news has no problem showing violent deaths, and whether it's 1 or 50 makes no difference to me.

The video itself is widely and freely available on the internet, so whether or not someone distributes it to willing watchers is moot, to me - they can go and watch it right now.

The telescopic sights were a nice tough in Arps' video, though.

We're going to turn this bloke into a martyr for white supremacy. Clever play.

Why not? How about Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity?

None of these religions are native to New Zealand, all have extremists. So why separate one from the others for special attention?
