That Didn't Take Long - Terror in Melbourne

Not even a month since I asked when would Melbourne get it's Berlin moment, it's here. A terrorist has killed 4 people by driving into them as they walked down Bourke Street Mall in the Melbourne CBD. It is still unclear if he is a Muslim or not at this stage. Those killed include a man and a women both in their thirties and a 10 year old boy. Here is a MSM story on the attack with a timeline, Melbourne CBD Rampage.

Just like in the bombing of the Australian Christian Lobby in Canberra last month, the Police have once again told us this has nothing to do with terrorism. The story this far is that he is a violent man who is known to police, that he has already been charged with domestic violence offences, that he is a drug user and has mental illness. It is also believed that he stabbed his brother around 6am and that the police have been actively looking to arrest him since at least 11:30am, But he was not arrested because the three times they tried he got away!

At 1:30pm he started driving in circles at one of the busiest intersections in Melbourne, the corner of Flinders Street and Swanston Street. Two men tried to stop him by bashing in his window, but unfortunately failed, it is not known if these men were police or civilians. He then drove down Swanston Street before driving into the Bourke Street Mall where he killed three and injured around 20, including children. He then seriously injured a toddler when he continued down Bourke Street, hitting a women pushing a pram. Only then was he shot, in the arm, by police and stopped.

It is something that once upon a time would have been unthinkable, that something like that could happen, let alone in Melbourne. But now it is just another event, something those who's only job is to protect us say is something we all just have to get used too. They will say they tried everything to stop this, but this is entirely due to their policies. Everything is getting worse and Liberalism is making it worse.

Update: 25/1/2017
At this time 5 people have died due to this attack, 2 of them children.

  1. Sounds like drugs and possibly poor policing played a large role in this. Legal cannabis a good idea? It often takes some sort of drug for people to cross the line into violent actions, Islamic or no. Peter Hitchens has influenced my thinking in this regard.

    I must add that I enjoy your blog. It is solid and thoughtful. Keep it up.
