No bail for man accused of distributing live stream of mosque shootings

An 18-year-old man has appeared in Christchurch District Court today charged with distributing a live stream of the Christchurch mosque shootings.

He has also been charged with publishing objectionable publications in the week prior to the attacks, including a photo of the mosque with the words "target identified", and messages inciting extreme violence.

The man, who has interim name suppression, was arrested by the police on Friday. Police have said they do not believe he was directly involved in the attacks.

The public gallery was cleared for his appearance, where Judge Stephen O'Driscoll decided not to grant him bail, and imposed strict limits on what the media can report.

They could never pull this scam off in the US even with 9/11, so they rescheduled it to NZ, I guess.
