Racism in Christchurch? I don’t believe it
There is an ugly smell coming from the Christchurch crash that saw two girls killed, two in serious conditions and many others wounded, and it is the suggestion that the man driving the car was racially attacked by skinheads and that is what drove him to such a devastating act. Racism in Christchurch? I can hardly believe it.
Race fights led to tragedy say witnesses
Police are investigating whether racially motivated violence led to a hit-and-run in Christchurch that has left two girls dead and two other people fighting for their lives. Witnesses spoken to by the Herald have described seeing "skinheads" fighting with Polynesians around the time a car drove through a group of people outside a party of several hundred on Saturday night. Lipine Sila, 22, is facing two charges of murder after allegedly driving through a group of people and killing Jane Young and Hannah Rossiter, both 16. Partygoer Felix Sekulla, 17, told the Herald the street outside the 20th birthday party was calm until some groups started picking fights. Jacob, 17, who was also at the party said fighting between the skinheads and Polynesians happened down the street from the party and many were rushing down to see it.
