An Auckland man has been dragged from court screaming during his sentencing for distributing Islamic State propaganda videos.
In May he pleaded guilty to possessing, making and distributing videos containing beheadings, executions, immolation and mutilation and the sentence makes him the first person in the country to be handed a punishment for possessing footage of extreme violence. He could be heard angrily screaming from the cells for some time afterwards.
What's next? Will this become commonplace in NZ? What do we do to stop this cancerous infection from spreading?
