Robert Alai - New Zealand Man Jailed for 2 Years for Sharing Christchurch Shooting Video

#1
Wale wanasema Alai should not be arrested for sharing gory terror pictures, the same is happening in New Zealand. A guy has been jailed for 2 years for sharing that mosque shooting video.

Also, it can be argued that Alai broke the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2012.

In New Zealand they're fighting the result rather than the cause. The cause is sooooooo deep that any attempt to fight it will bring "anti-Islam issues" which no country in the world currently wants to confront.

Responsibility is a virtue. This Alai oaf ought to out-mature himself and start doing what he does with civility and decorum. He could have exaggerated the story all he wanted, but out of the respect of the dead and the bereaved, the pictures were supposed to be taboo. Unwittingly helping the murderous alshabaab, the kind of shitty shenanigans that made me dislike Ali jicho kavu mpaka sasa!

You cannot justify the way government is treating its uniformed officers. Alai is right. Officers are with him, thou they can't express it openly. Its time the king is told he is naked

That's true. The soldiers bodies were bundled up in a pick up one on top of the other as if they were criminals or bananas going to the market. But also Alai should be aware of the general practice regarding photography in times of armed conflict.

People who justify sharing of pics of the dead online do so because those of their loved ones are yet to be shared. Siku that will happen is when you will know why you should not share such pics
That's a good point. But it's also pretentious that Alai was censured for being "insensitive" to the killed soldiers' families and that the photos would glorify terrorists and cause despondency among the military. But then why not transport the bodies more humanely? Couldn't they have got a chopper or something to airlift the bodies? Or at least bodybags? Why pile the bodies on top of each other like that?

Do you know how the photos got to Alai from wajir? Police are killing themselves due to what you are trying to justify. Alai is a hero. Uniformed officers sent the photos to Alai
