The 41yo North Shore terrorist was granted name suppression today when he appeared in Waitakere District Court charged with one count of Assault and four counts of Wounding with Intent to Cause Grievous Bodily Harm.
Yesterdays media reports appeared purposely vague regarding an offender description or motivation for the attack. We have seen overseas that it’s not unusual for Islamic police to hide Islamic crimes, as they did for decades with what is now referred to as the Rape of Britain, as documented in the book Easy Meat.
The Waitakere district commander, Naila Hassan, would have us believe that this is not a terrorist incident, that it was unplanned, and just ‘random’. However one doesn’t leave the house with a kitchen knife in hand to roam the streets without a plan to use the knife for some purpose.
If Hassan was trying to hide an Islamic event, North Shore terrorist granted name suppression would be the first step.
The media blackout on offender information is typical of the collusion we saw between various media outlets to withhold information after other Islamic events.
This from NZ herald:
A 41-year-old man has been granted name suppression after appearing in court over “random” stabbings that injured four people on Auckland’s North Shore.
The man has been charged with assault and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm after the stabbings in Auckland’s Murrays Bay yesterday.
He appeared in Waitakere District Court this morning and was granted name suppression.
The man did not enter a plea and was remanded in custody to reappear in court on Monday.
The accused faces a charge of assault and four counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
“Police would like to reassure the community that this was an isolated incident,” police said earlier today.
“People may notice an increased police presence in the Murrays Bay and Mairangi Bay area as the investigation into the incident continues.”
Police had said that a display of “extreme bravery” by members of the public helped capture the suspect in Mairangi Bay yesterday, after four people were stabbed in a “random” attack at neighbouring Murrays Bay.
One of the bystanders used a crutch to bring the suspect to the ground.
Police arrived shortly after and handcuffed the offender.
Waitemat? District commander Superintendent Naila Hassan said yesterday that the group’s brave actions likely saved others from harm.
“There were members of the public that acted in extreme bravery, they apprehended the offender and brought this incident to its conclusion,” she said.
“It could’ve been a lot worse and that’s why I really need to acknowledge the bravery of those members of the public.”
The four stabbing victims suffered moderate wounds, but the attacks left many more locals shocked.
Hassan described it as an isolated and random incident. There was no indication it was a hate crime, she said.
It occurred just before midday in broad daylight on normally peaceful streets.
