Bondi Junction Stabbing: Seven People Dead In Australia And Baby Injured


Recommended Posts

At least seven people are dead, including the attacker, as a result of a stabbing spree at Westfield Bondi Junction, a six-level shopping centre in Sydney’s east. A lone man walked through the shopping mall wielding a knife, stabbing people apparently at random. He was chased by a lone senior police officer and shot dead. A shopper earlier tried to confront the man on an escalator. The NSW assistant police commissioner, Anthony Cooke, says there was 'nothing at the scene that indicated any motive or ideology'

 

I can't imagine the terror people must have felt. Rest in peace to the victims.

Fingers crossed the baby is ok

Not terror related.

Which of course sounds kinda weird 

 

It depends on the circumstances. Terrorism is carrying out violence to pursue a particular agenda or push a certain cause, such as Islamism, neo-nazism or left wing anarchism. If this was just some unhinged mentally ill person then it wouldn't be classed as terrorism.

 

I see the scumbag mostly attacked women too. What a coward. Rest in peace to the victims.

The New South Wales police commissioner, Karen Webb, said in a press conference on Saturday evening the attacker was a 40-year-old man but he was yet to be formally identified. Police did not believe his motive was related to terrorism, she said.

 

“If it is the person we believe it is, we don’t have fear for that person holding an ideation,” Webb said. “In other words, that it’s not a terrorism incident.

It's pretty clear they think it's not terrorism.

That would imply "that person holding an ideation" to use the police's words.

 

Apart from the police saying it wasn't terrorism everything else is speculation at the moment.

Vrsaljko stated that he attacked mostly women, just a thought.
