Absolutely " just tragic and terrifying that stuff like this can happen. Police saying they don't think it's terrorism-related but I guess we'll likely learn about motivations in the coming days.

Must be so disappointing for you that they weren't black, or even brown.

What a ^&*^*% comment to make roar.

Burn his body and dump him in a tip for toxic waste, and never say his name.

Gutless prick, no excuses.

I guess we should thank small mercies that a mentally Ill bloke commits these attacks with a kitchen knife rather than an AR15.

5 of the 6 dead are women, apparently, not sure if anything can be read into that.

Of course it can. He wasn’t a small man in stature but clearly a small man inside, he took on the defenceless, at least 2 were tourists.

And yes, thankgod it wasn’t a gun.

The continual cuts to mental health services, by successive governments over the past 40 years... what could possibly go wrong.

New year’s mental health cuts defy years of expert advice

The Albanese government will slash access to psychological treatment for Australians under the Medicare Better Access program next week " under the guise of making mental health care “more accessible”. It claims Australians accessing more than 10 sessions have been somehow making it harder for those from low socio-economic backgrounds or regional and remote areas to get the help they need.

A piece written just a few weeks ago..

https://insightplus.mja.com.au/2024/10/mental-health-crisis-looms-without-funding-reform/

But in the end, the disappointing slippery dip of Australia’s mental health reform journey is revealed in the graph below, which shows mental health’s share of the total government spending on health care at 6.78%, the lowest it has been since 1992, the year Australia’s National Mental Health Strategy began.

No doubt many people had a script ready to go if he had been Muslim or a refugee.

Never been arrested before. Likely he was known as he'd been a rough sleeper for several years.

It's great to see the media name a person who wasn't the assailant and then claim human error. It's very sad and I am now starting a week of not watching or listening to mainstream media. They are in their glee, they love this crap.

Two things. Firstly I have heard so many times about people wanting to ban guns in the USA because someone with a gun can kill more people than people an arsehole with a knife. Obviously this is correct although a total of 6 or possibly more victims is still a significant amount of people. I feel so sad for the victims and families.
Secondly older Collingwood fans will always remember Kerry Good who kicked a goal well after the siren to win a night series grand final for North in 1977. Tragically one of the victims was his young daughter 🥲

He wasn't mentally ill. He was targeting what he perceived as weak and defenceless people.
