The white supremacist attacker who slaughtered at least 49 people at two New Zealand mosques Friday was “borrowing from the ISIS playbook,” police brass said.

“What I see is a lot of similarities to, in terms of tactics, you can see that the neo-fascist groups, white supremacists, are borrowing from the ISIS playbook ,” NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Counterterrorism and Intelligence John Miller said Friday on “CBS This Morning.”

The suspected gunman, Brenton Tarrant, livestreamed the attack on Facebook in a horrifying 17-minute video — an ISIS tactic that the NYPD often calls “dying live,” he said.

“This was an ISIS tactic where they said, ‘If you’re going to do a mass-casualty attack, you should livestream it over social media,'” he continued.

He added that neo-fascist groups and white supremacists have been increasingly adopting tactics featured in ISIS and al Qaeda magazines.

Later in the day, Miller spoke to worshipers and officers at the Upper East Side’s Islamic Cultural Center, one of the largest centers of its kind in the city, where he said 5,000 worshipers would be attending 1 o’clock prayers.

“Precinct commanders [have] dedicated house of worship cars to check in with all the churches and temples and mosques as part of their daily routine,” he said. “Counterterrorism resources, resources from the Strategic Response Group, the Emergency Service Unit, the Hercules Team — and of course mosques and masjids will be a special focus today and for the next few days until we understand the breadth of, the details of the attack.”

The primary suspect in Friday’s deadly shooting at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, appeared in court on Saturday. Brenton Harrison Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian, did not enter a plea on one count of murder and made a white power gesture from the dock. Authorities have two more suspects in custody.

• New Zealand’s leader vowed its “gun laws will change.” Suspect had license to carry the types of guns used in deadly attacks. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Tarrant had modified guns used in the killing that left at least 49 dead, and Attorney General David Parker says the government will ban semiautomatic rifles.

• A live video that appeared to be of one of the shootings was streamed on Facebook and uploaded to other sites like Twitter and YouTube, raising questions about the role social media plays in radicalization.

• President Trump on Friday said he had not seen a 74-page manifesto that Tarrant had written railing against Muslims and immigrants, but did not believe white nationalism is a rising global threat, adding, “I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems. It’s certainly a terrible thing.

New Zealand ‘shooter’ flashes ‘white power’ symbol in court
By Ben Feuerherd

The suspected white supremacist who allegedly slaughtered 49 people in mass shootings at two separate mosques in New Zealand appeared in court in the city of Christchurch and was charged with murder Saturday morning local time, authorities said.

Brenton Tarrant, 28, was hit with just one murder charge, New Zealand Police said, but more charges were expected.

Tarrant, who was handcuffed and clad in a white prison jumpsuit, made an “OK” hand gesture during his appearance — a symbol used by white nationalists and racist internet trolls , according to a photo published by the New Zealand Herald.

He was remanded without bail and is expected back in court April 5.

He killed 41 people at the Al Noor Mosque in the center of the city, then slaughtered seven more at the Linwood Mosque about 3 miles away, authorities said.

Another victim died at a nearby hospital.

Tarrant livestreamed his attack on Facebook and left behind a manifesto, in which he rambled about white supremacy and racism.
