This is ridiculous. People shouldn't say mean things, but it's not the government's job to threaten people who do say mean things. The government also shouldn't get to decide what we're allowed to say. We're already seeing in other countries, people being punished simply for saying facts that "hurt people's feelings".
Threats against people should always be taken seriously, but being called mean names should not be a punishable offense.

People are saying the sushi restaurant should change the menu to fit with these wasteful people's desires. Reminds me of a man who yelled at the Fish and Chip shop worker for not selling vegetarian burgers. Go somewhere that has the food you want! You can't expect them to change their menu because you want to be a selfish child. It is especially disrespectful to do this in Japan because of their culture, so I really hope these people are just ignorant travelers.

This kind of horrific accident happens all the time. It doesn't matter how old you are, if a child is behind the car, they are probably too small to be seen. It's most common from parents backing out of their driveway. Let's not take a heartbreaking tragedy and turn it into some political agenda. I can't imagine how painful this must be for the grandfather and the rest of the family. They don't need nasty comments. He will be feeling guilty enough.

Strangerland, maybe you could look up any NZ news such as her party's sex scandals and the Ihumatao land protests she doesn't want to sort out.
News poll says 80% of New Zealanders don't believe her when she says she didn't know about the sexual assaults, which is probably because it was all over the media so we all knew, why didn't she know?

Yeah it must be nice for her to run away from all the problems going on in New Zealand right now. Typical Jacinda.

I thought he came out as gay a while back too. You can't be homosexual AND agender. Homosexual means a man attracted to a man or a woman attracted to a woman. If anything, being a nothing makes him heterosexual now.

She says she didn't know about it, but everyone else knew. It was in the media, even the opposition were posting about it. Even I knew about it and I don't go looking for NZ news.

And how much could be prevented by having safe sex?

I'm a woman and I was carrying my (at the time) boyfriend's little sister through the supermarket, and we got to the checkout and she said, "We're not family!" to the worker. I was scared something would happen but nothing did. If I were a man, perhaps I would have been reported.

Threats to kill should always be taken seriously. That isn't under the umbrella of free speech in other countries.
But the harsh words of a racist should be protected even though it's horrible.
Once we start limiting speech, it doesn't end. Everyone interprets offensive language differently and we could end up being banned from saying things like "there are two genders" or even "foreigners are causing a lot of crime".
An American I worked with called me an animal, I don't know why though, and we are different races. While he's a terrible person, it is not the government's job to stop him from speaking. And I reserve the right to call him something back, though I decided he isn't worth my time. I would say he's a roach not worth stepping on and I shouldn't be punished for that.

Women are capable of voting, are they not? And women are allowed to vote for men, are they not?
Saying that the government is not representative of women is an insult to women and women's intelligence.
If I had to choose between my parents for who to best represent my interests, I would choose my father.
Being the same sex doesn't mean they magically represent my interests.

Jacinda played on the emotions of the people by using a tragedy to force through her rules without asking the public or even other politicians what they thought. She has labelled her own citizens criminals.
Before this new scheme took affect, she had authorised gun raids against innocent citizens:
"One of the complaints is from a Christchurch contractor who says a rifle was levelled at his 12-year-old daughter during a raid on his home by police acting under the Search and Surveillance Act. The act allows police to search an address without a warrant."
The buyback laws will be giving the gun owners almost nothing compared to what they paid for it depending on the "condition" the police decide the gun is in. While perfect condition will receive 95%, average condition receives 70% and "poor" condition receives 25% of what they paid for it.
Don't worry if you have a gun not on the police list though, you can pay $120 and they'll check it for you....
Let's also keep in mind that this mosque shooting Jacinda adores was actually stopped by a man with a gun. People like to ignore that part. The shooter had gone back to his car for another gun to continue shooting. A brave man threw a credit card machine at him but he simply tried to shoot at him and went back inside and continued shooting. When he went back to the car again, the brave man had picked up one of the empty guns and pointed it at the shooter, who fled. He wasn't going to stop until he saw that gun.
Jacinda banned the viewing of the video and the reading of the manifesto, making it illegal to know exactly what happened. Then allowed the media to lie about him saying things like he was Christian or far-right etc. They call him a white supremacist but he highly admired the Chinese for their structure of government. But all we know about him and his way of thinking comes from a few people who got to read the information themselves before it became a crime. People have already been charged as criminals for having this information.
Jacinda put on a hijab and had her picture taken and posted everywhere, making her the face of the mosque attacks and taking the focus away from the real victims. Does anyone remember the real victims' faces now? Or just the big Jacinda mural painted in Australia?
She tried to cancel our annual Anzac Day remembrance ceremonies of our fallen soldiers, because it was supporting "violence". 58 services were cancelled.
The taken guns weren't even being held safely. A man stole 11 guns from a POLICE STATION after they had been handed in. Luckily the police have found the man and taken them back.
Oh and I suppose taking all the guns will keep the people of New Zealand safer because less bad people will have guns right? Well here's a word from our friendly neighbourhood gang leader:
"Gang members will not be handing in their guns following the law reform announced by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, a Mongrel Mob leader has said."
Don't worry, he assures us gangs will only use guns for gang-on-gang violence. I'm sure they won't take advantage of the disarmed population. Oh by the way, our police force don't typically carry guns on them. In the event of an emergency, they have to go get them. Safe, right!
Jacinda has also been talking about limiting free speech and social networking sights. Already police have been harassing citizens for posts they've made on the internet.
The police officer in this video has even brought his gun with him as if this citizen is a threat because of his opinions.
"The Prime Minister isn't ruling out changing laws that could go as far as blocking Facebook if it's used to share extremist or violent content like the alleged Christchurch gunman's video of the March 15 terror attack."
She needs a disarmed population to control what we say, and she's not quiet about it. She's using the mosque tragedy to push her agenda; it was never about the victims for her.

Illegal immigration is costing Americans about $134.9 billion a year.
The children who died, died because of prior existing medical conditions or because of sickness related to the hazardous trip towards the border. The children were given emergency medical care and died in hospitals.
Illegal immigrants have been found to be much more likely to commit violent crimes.
If they want to come to America, they should be applying like everyone else has to. They are the ones endangering their own children. Criminals (someone who has broken the law) are always separated from their children. These people made the choice. America is not responsible for other countries but they allow asylum to people who apply properly.
