Seems as though another lunatic has gone on the rampage in Melbourne, possibly in a copy-cat crime in relation to the one one year ago- - https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/two-people-stabbed-man-shot-after-car-set-alight-on-bourke-street-reports/ar-BBPvuga?li=AAgfYrC&ocid=spartanntp Sad

An excellent job done by our Police in Melbourne today.

When most sensible people are doing their best to avoid events like this, these brave men & women run in to try and stop the madman from inflicting any more terror.

Today, they showed us this again. Well done.

It will save the state the costs of a trial and long term isolated imprisonment and perhaps more importantly, it will save the survivors the potential trauma of re-living all of it again during court proceedings. For these reasons, it is a good thing that the policeman's bullet proved fatal.

I think you will find with these idiot's, they go out basically on a suicide mission, so really he has achieved his objective, what's the more worrying thing for me, is that it has been reported that he has links to terror plotters, that's the real concern, they could still be on the loose somewhere...

Seems as though the fellow was ISIS inspired, he was known to have become radicalized in the past, but didn't pose any threat.

Have to feel for the cop who pulled the trigger; apparently, he's only 3 months out of the academy. I've been told by a workmate, who has a son in the force, that the newest recruits are the ones in the Divisional vans and therefore are the first on any scene like Fridays, so they get to experience all the "joys" of car and train fatalities, suicides, shootings, etc. amazing that most stay on with all the potential for PTSD!

Are 'radicalised' and 'no threat' not mutually exclusive?

Sadly the police are hamstrung by the whinging cry for everyone social media warriours/civil libeterians who chuck massive tanties about the police state and ethnic targeting.

You rednecks make it too easy.

Of course.
That was the intent of my post (but it is not what I wrote, admittedly).
I will now edit it (if I can).

Rather disappointing statement from Matthew Guy. No sympathy for the victims. No praise for the police, other emergency services or bystanders.

So, what you're saying, is that we shouldn't keep an eye on people that have become radicalized, and pose a threat??

IRFan dont sweat it old bings just using the far left standard tactic of if you do not agree with peoples thoughts then shout them down and call them rednecks....a very standard response from the so called caring sharing types ...they love everyone till they disagree.

At times like this politics should be pushed aside and he should be both thanking and supporting the Emergency Services and anyone else in a bi-partisan. As an election in Vic is coming up soon, both the Opposition Leader and Premier should travel together to do a joint walk down and thank in person the police, VFS etc for doing their job. Leave the politics for another day.

Reflections on this...

Firstly, regardless of what you choose to label him, the police tried to control the situation and acted as they thought necessary.

Secondly, if people want to leave the country let them. The government can cancel their passport or detain them upon their return. Some people put their God before Country.

Hearing the usual expert commentary, the Muslim community (whatever that is), is supposed to be responsible for an individual. OK, who is responsible for preventing Martin Bryant, Julian Knight, the Walsh Street killers? Even authoritarian countries with their legions of informants still have crimes against the state.

It seems that anyone who invokes Allah in a criminal act is considered sane and a stanch, calculating terrorist. However, when a former US Marine or retired real estate agent calculates a massacre their mental state is the issue, not terrorism. Go figure.
