Alleged Christchurch mosque gunman sends letter from prison cell

(CNN) New Zealand's prison authority has acknowledged it made a mistake in allowing the alleged Christchurch mosque attacker to send a letter, which then surfaced on 4chan, an online message board known for hosting the views of white supremacists.

In a statement released Wednesday, New Zealand's Department of Corrections admitted that the message, written by Brenton Tarrant from his prison cell, should have been withheld.

Most of the six-page screed appeared to be mundane, but the 28-year-old took the opportunity to reassert his anti-immigrant views.

"I have no concern about myself and I only worry for Europe's future," Tarrant wrote. "I only hope our people can survive the coming demographic shift."

The letter was sent to an address in Russia, a country which Tarrant also wrote at length about, before it was posted to 4chan.

1. The same trifecta AGAIN

white supremacist mass shooters, Russia, and 4chan...

These themes are beginning to form a pattern
