    I think she could be regarded as the first of the modern day shooters. In particular, she was a Minor and a Student.

    Although you could regard the Bell Tower Sniper as the first that received nationwide attention.

    An interesting list and I haven't finished it yet but most of the things mentioned are not relevant to what we are talking about. There's a lot of wild west stuff. A number of female teachers were shot for rejecting amorous advances. Up to the 1970s when students at Kent State University were shot by badly trained or untrained National Guardsmen.

    I'll keep looking...

    The thread went that way after a clip was revealed showing Seymour coming down the escalator at britomart in Auckland, proclaiming he was running for prime minister while also claiming he could shoot people on queen street without losing any voters. Well if the victims were not registered Epsom voters that is. True story bro

    Now, let's be serious for a second here...

    Would this decrease or increase his popularity with the rest of New Zealand....















    I'm joking of course.....




    We all know it would increase it.

    That’s scary broad in scope and even the govt could be considered guilty on a variety of counts under those words.

    I preferred the traditional definition in its simplicity “ violence to achieve polical or ideological goals”
    What’s stated in that legislations is basically doing anything that scares the population or harms infrastructure and economy. Failure to control inflation anyone???!

    Here we go again. Don't believe all the propaganda you're reading. Inflation here is lower than some comparable countries and similar to others. National like to say, "Higher than our trading partners." Presumably they are referring to China which does have low inflation. So does Afghanistan.

    It's a world wide problem and NZ is handling it as well as most and better than some.

    It's not a world wide problem, it's a problem for all the countries that applied similar fiscal policies.

    If you print money, increase minimum wages, shutdown the economy etc. You will get inflation.

    To quote Terri Hatcher it’s real and it’s slectacular.... Rampant inflations is real it’s not just an “ idea”....

    My fixed mortgage rate is about to double specificly from this govts policies so they could get re-elected again. They snorted a line of cheap cash for a short term high now here comes the afteraffects....
    Btw I can afford the rise it’s no big deal to me and my repayments still cheaper than renting. But it’s going to smash many labour voters who only just got onto the ladder and now will be mortgagee/repo sale victims as the banks call in their debt.
    Just like 2009 the banks will land bank the properties and drop feed them into market furthering the housing availability crisis.

    No problem, pissed off landlords will keep selling up, so the first home buyers will still have something to buy. Of course their tenants will then have nowhere to live, so will join the housing NZ waiting list, and end up living in a motel.

    Inflation as a measure is bollocks when the things people need cost more due to external factors, and not because there is an excess of cash increasing demand for things they don't need, but still the punishment is taking even more money off the people who already have less of it.

    And then there's the real world. Apart from exceptions like China, Japan, and Malaysia, most people couldn't even point to many of the countries with 2% inflation on a map.

    Hold up... It's a world wide problem... with Exceptions.

    And going by the exceptions you listed, 2 of them are major economic powers.

    So if it's not an issue that was directly caused by Policy - pray tell Pritch: Why did it not happen to Japan?

    What's more, I suspect (I haven't looked at this deeply) there's probably a strong correlation between countries that predominantly export to the likes of US/Europe not having high inflation, whereas the countries that predominantly import from the likes do.
