Mosque shooting video: Philip Arps launches second appeal.

Let’s not forget the long history of the many radicals amongst Christchurch Muslims that have been supporting Kireka-Whaanga in his creation of a halal funded Islamic State here in New Zealand:

2018:  Kiwi teenager radicalised planned mass killing in Christchurch ‘for Allah’.
2015: A foreign assessment of NZ’s contribution to the Islamic State
2014: Aotearoa Muslim is proud to support Isis  <  –  a dozen more radicals ID’d right there!
2014: A Kiwi lad’s death by drone – Daryl Jones
2014: The Deans Ave facility was partly funded by a $460,000 gift from the Saudi kingdom.
2009: Mark Anthony Taylor visits Daryl Jones in Yamen.
2002: THE ROCKING OF THE DOME.

Self-confessed white supremacist Philip Neville Arps, who was jailed for sharing the Christchurch mosque shooting video, is launching a second appeal against his sentence.

Arps, 44, who thought graphic and banned footage of the Al Noor Mosque attack on March 15 was “awesome”, was jailed for 21 months at Christchurch District Court in June after admitting two charges of distributing an objectionable publication.

Judge Stephen O’Driscoll said Arps, who owns a white supremacist-themed insulation company, had “glorified” the killings and showed “particular cruelty” and callousness.

Arps went to the High Court to appeal that his sentence was “manifestly excessive”.

His lawyer, Anselm Williams, argued that Arps should have avoided jail and been sentenced to either a community-imposed sentence or one of home detention.

He said Arps had been sentenced on his extreme views rather than the acts he had pleaded guilty to.

The court earlier heard how Arps shared the video with a group of 30 “friends or associates” after the shooting.

Millions of people worldwide from all walks of life had done the same thing, Williams said.

Arps also had a version of the video modified to have crosshairs and a “kill count” added.

His offending was, in effect, a hate crime against the Muslim community, Judge O’Driscoll said.

When he was arrested and asked by police about the victims’ deaths, he replied, “I could not give a f***, mate”.

Justice Rachel Dunningham rejected his appeal arguments and agreed with the District Court judge’s “appropriate and justified” decision.

Now, he’s making another bid to overturn his sentence.

A spokeswoman for the Court of Appeal today confirmed that an application for leave to bring a second appeal against his sentence will be heard in Wellington on November 18.

Today, Williams confirmed the move, saying his client feels he was jailed for too long and that home detention should’ve been made available to him.

In 2016, Arps was one of a group of men who filmed themselves doing Hitler salutes as they delivered boxes of pigs heads and offal to the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch.

“White power … Bring on the cull,” Arps was seen saying in the video.

In that case, he was convicted of offensive behaviour and fined $800.

One thought on “Mosque shooting video: Philip Arps launches second appeal.

  1. Arps’ conviction only reinforces the mistaken belief the “live-stream” video is genuine, which it manifestly isn’t. It’s a fake, made in advance of March 15, and shows a “shooter” firing a replica airgun at heaps of dummies. The “shots” do not damage the dummies. They do no more than ruffle the clothes and, in one case, blow a prayer cap off. They also leave no marks on the walls of the mosque. Only a person who has no knowledge of the power of modern weapons – and in particular the power of the AR-15 or M-16 – would be taken in by this cheap production. Viewers should also note that, in the “firing” outside the mosque, ejected cartridge cases vanish in mid-air. They do not fall to the ground. It’s all hocus-pocus.
