NZ MASS MURDERER: “I worked for a short time before making some money investing in [cryptocurrency] Bitconnect, then used the money from the investment to travel,” Tarrant writes.

The man who livestreamed himself attacking a Christchurch mosque and murdering at least 40 people identified himself online before the rampage as Australian citizen Brenton Tarrant.

On a now-deleted Twitter account, Tarrant posted multiple photos of what appear to be machine gun magazines and a link to what is being described as a manifesto for his actions.

The 74-page document starts off quoting a Dylan Thomas poem, Do not go gentle into that good night, and then moves onto a rant about white genocide.

Tarrant outlines his motivations: including to “create an atmosphere of fear” and to “incite violence” against Muslims while offering up autobiographical details.

Tarrant, an Australian citizen who is believed to come from the northern New South Wales town of Grafton, entitles his document ‘The Great Replacement’

In it he claims he had “brief contact” with Norwegian mass-murderer Anders Behring Brevik and that Brevik gave a “blessing” for his attack.

Police have not confirmed that Brenton is one of the men in custody over the shooting. They have said one man has been charged.

Australian prime minister Scott Morrison said an Australian citizen was involved in carrying out the attack.

In the document, Brenton introduces himself as growing up working-class, in a low-income family.

“I am just a regular white man, from a regular family, who decided to take a stand to ensure a future for my people,” he writes.

“My parents are of Scottish, Irish and English stock. I had a regular childhood, without any great issues.”

Tarrant details his lack of interest in his education growing up and how he had barely achieved a passing grade in high school and had not attended university.

“I worked for a short time before making some money investing in [cryptocurrency] Bitconnect, then used the money from the investment to travel,” Tarrant writes.
