Not really, because the place is still basically a fucking prison. You don't have race wars in lockup, you just have areas of the exercise yard where certain pigmentations hang out and which you avoid. You have to understand, Australian psychology is a lot more "Can't be fucked" than American is. It comes from being descended from a British Anglican establishment standing over an underclass of Irish Catholics. Yes, we had a White Australia policy once, but that's been gone since roughly the fifties/sixties and the Aboriginals out here are never going to let us forget it existed, mainly because they make a shitload of guilt money out of the government on the subject.

RE: Melbourne car attack against pedestrians
This incident occurred just a few blocks away from where I was working, on a footpath I've walked down countless times...A family member was less than a km away from it at the time as well.
Kind of hits home how easy it is to just be in the wrong place at the wrong time. A very sad day for Melbournians.
We all got sent emails at work saying to not let anyone into the building and there was some uncertainty about the motivation behind what happened, but it's pretty clear now that there was no link to terrorism. Not sure how anyone could invoke a 'race war' either, the fact that he happened to be Greek doesn't seem particularly relevant.
What is relevant is that he had a history of violent crime and that the police did not wish for him to be released on bail. This has led to calls for reform of bail laws in Victoria which are less stringent than other states:
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-01-22/me...es/8201252
Parole is equally lax here - the incident is redolent of that concerning Adrian Bayley, the convicted rapist who was released on parole only to rape and murder the journalist Jill Meagher.
The drive to rehabilitate these criminals has overshadowed the fact that reoffending is so very common, and community members are dealing with the fatal consequences of these poor decisions.

What does it matter if the people believe it's terror or mental illness related? Nothing will be done either way. The mentally ill will continue to be allowed to roam the streets endangering the lives of all those who pass by instead of being locked up in a mental hospital like they need to be(I'm assuming it works this way in Australia too). And absolutely nothing will be done to limit the dangers of Islam by stopping it's people from coming to Western countries and killing us. Mass murder no longer seems to inspire change for most, people just ignore it or rationalize it away. But good to see the police have their priorities straight in Australia too, gotta manage the public's perception of reality before, you know, protecting the people.

RE: Melbourne car attack against pedestrians
Perhaps not unexpectedly, an attention whore has decided to whore off this idiot's attention.

Quote: AN OLD friend of accused Melbourne killer Dimitrious ‘Jimmy’ Gargasoulas has revealed his father called her an “Australian sl*t”.

Alisha Bland, former girlfriend of the driver’s half-brother George, told news.com.au the family “didn’t accept her because she wasn’t Greek.”

She said the boys’ father Chris told her over the phone, “You’re nothing but an Aussie sl*t, and Aussies are for a good time not a long time”, and that the driver’s mother Emily would “get on the phone telling me to leave George alone”.

Ms Bland, 30, added: “They even accused me of trying to get pregnant to steal his inheritance.”

[Image: 47ad498e03d37063713ebfb526e026ca]
Bland by name, bland by nature

Quote:She “couldn’t believe it” when she heard Gargasoulas had allegedly mowed down pedestrians in Melbourne’s CBD on Friday, killing five people, including two children, and injuring 15.

She used to speak to him on the phone when he was a teenager living in Coober Pedy, South Australia ...

Okay, now some of the picture becomes clearer, since living in Coober Pedy when you're a teenager is liable to drive anyone slightly potty. For those who came in late, Coober Pedy is a rural opal mining town that looks like this from the air:

[Image: Aerial%20View%20of%20Coober%20Pedy%20%20W.jpg]

And like this from ground level, because it's too damn hot to have an above-ground house:

[Image: 10188685324_6718d09ebb_b.jpg]

Quote:... and she was dating his older half-brother George.

“He was adorable,” she said. “He was this sweet teenage boy who I’d talk to on the phone and cry to about my relationship problems and he would try and make me feel better. He was flirty and smooth-talking.

“He was only a teenager — such a sweet kid, just a normal teenage boy.”

So she was stringing this fucker along in the friendzone while banging his brother from another mother.

Supposedly our boy would visit Coober Pedy often, and cars would be visiting him all hours of the day and night for brief periods. If so I'd diagnose his problem as the standard millennial thirst for ice, and he seems to have become the local Coober Pedy connection for it.

He looks like Nick Kyrgios, the tennis player, whose dad is Greek and whose mother is Malaysian.

Maybe, but Melbourne is the largest Greek city in the world after Athens and Thessaloniki and I know full Greeks who are darker than that guy, and others so fair they could pass for Irish. There is a lot more variety in skin tone in the Mediterranean basin than further north in Europe. Bashar al-Assad is a good example, he has white skin and blue eyes even though he's Syrian.

He's definitely not fully Greek. Apart from the fact that he doesn't look Greek, his mother gave a rather heart breaking interview. She spoke with a non-Greek accent and appeared to be of a non European dark hue.

He described himself on social media as a half Kurdish Moslem, which may well be the case.

I have no sympathy for this piece of shit, but let's not pretend he was all there. Clearly, somewhere along the way, the mental health services and Justice system have let the community down.

The people who said that this was motivated by Islam have been vindicated, as Dimitri has appeared in court today yelling that Islam is the only true religion and that he was the "saviour", also claiming that he was not guilty:

RE: Melbourne car attack against pedestrians
A similar attack's happened in the same place just now. It's too early to tell whether he was a terrorist like our Greek-Tongan/Kurdish friend or just a sicko.

ABC News Wrote:A number of pedestrians have been hit by a car near Flinders Street Station in central Melbourne.

The extent of the injuries are not known and the driver of the vehicle has been arrested.

Emergency crews are treating 12 people at the scene between Elizabeth and Swanston streets.

A witness, John, described seeing an SUV travelling "at high speed" and "hitting people".

"I saw a car, a SUV coming at high speed and really just heard the collision with people with bags and what must be shopping trolleys — and I hope not prams," he said.

Two people were taken to hospital, including a preschool-aged child with a head injury.

The child was taken to the Royal Children's Hospital in a serious condition.

Another person was taken to the Alfred hospital. Their injuries and condition is not yet known.

Police said they "saturated the CBD area in the vicinity of Flinders, Elizabeth and Swanston streets to ensure community safety".

One day there's going to be an attack like this, the police are going to "saturate the area" and then another muslim is simply going to run down a shitload of police.

Anyhoo, for another decade or so it'll be a body-count race between islamic moto-jihadists and senile boomers who've momentarily forgotten which is pedal is the brake.

The ABC page which I linked a few hours ago now says that the guy was "a 32-year-old Australian citizen of Afghan descent, and was known to police, but was not on bail at the time of the incident."

Japan isn't having this problem of mass immigration as a result of ease for now.

Although there is pressure for them to do so from westerners.

There must be something more to it than that simple ease culturally and genetically.

There were two involved from one article I read. It sounds almost like a hijacking with the passenger calling the driver a dog, but that could just be a rumor.

RE: Melbourne car attack against pedestrians
Naively I was believing that you need a rigorous police investigation to determine if a driver who try to kill people is connected to terrorism or not.

The journalists are here to enlighten me: no need to investigate.

Quote:CNN: Melbourne attack driver had mental health issues but no terror connection

Melbourne, Australia (CNN)The driver of a car which plowed into Christmas shoppers in Melbourne Thursday had a history of drug use and mental health issues, police said.

Acting chief commissioner of Victoria Police Shane Patton told reporters that while the crash was considered to be deliberate, there was no evidence of a link to terrorism.
Eighteen people were injured, including at least one young child, when the car hit pedestrians outside Melbourne's iconic Flinders Street station just after 4.40 p.m. local time

After WW2 we basically cut their balls off and they haven't recovered that culture since.

I remember it was a few decades ago that we started letting the crazies out and onto the streets instead of locking them out of harm's way.

It was a deliberate policy of cost reduction and "human rights"
