Thoughts are with the families of the 2 Aussies that died as well as those that survived & have to deal with what happened. I hope the media & public give them all the space & support they need & not smother them. Our "need to know" what happened isn't as important as their need to survive this.
The worthless piece of shit that did this was a Criminal & was on bail for "accessory to murder" & 40 counts of "sexual assault" & knew he would be in a jail cell very soon. Regardless of what flag he waved, he was a sexual predator that possibly murdered his wife, had been flagged as a problem by many in the Muslim community & was desperate.
The media & politicians will call him all sorts of things to suit their own purposes but, IMHO, his actions had nothing to do with religious zealotry & everything to do with being a fucking mongrel dog that was backed into a corner & waiting to be put in a cage. His actions were his alone & while different bail or court conditions MAY have changed this outcome, the actions of a sadistic criminal are not the responsibility or fault of those in the Aussie Muslim Community.
Hate only breeds more Hate & the old "Fight Fire With Fire" leaves you only with a burnt out landscape where nothing survives. Hopefully most Australians won't give in to fear, hate or racism or parade it in front of their kids or each other like it's something to be proud of. It's not.
