The perpetrator was arrested by a bunch of locals before he could do anymore damage - good on them

A witness told reporters that the man was screaming comments about religion, before yelling to police that he wanted to be shot. Police said he used the Arabic phrase "Allahu akbar."

Or maybe it was a case of the guy wanting "suicide by cop" and used "religion" as the excuse!

This is fairly close to my workplace. Local news is reporting that there was a deceased woman in an apartment block nearby which they've confirmed is related.

That woman had her throat cut.

Really? news is going around that it was a few British tourists subdued him. Either way, good action.

Well done to those who restrained him, people, milk crate and chairs. Thank goodness he didn't have a gun, imagine the fatalities if he had

It feels like every time there is a white supremacist terror attack this is being balanced out by a Muslim terror attack.

I hope one day this lunacy will end and we can all live our lives in peace and tranquility.

I watched the video. Well done the brave locals - they saved lives.

Seemed to take a long time for the police to arrive.

The following link has a picture of three of the guys who helped apprehend him. Real heroes and should be praised as such.

As I predicted the usual excuse to cover up terrorist attacks yet again brough in to play.

Police had not listed the rampage as an act of terrorism

had collected information on his computer about mass killings in North America and New Zealand, New South Wales state Police Commissioners Michael Fuller said.

Police said he used the Arabic phrase "Allahu akbar."

Excuse me but how is this not an act of terrorism ?

Does this guy look ‘Caucasian’ as described in the article above?

He does actually but Caucasian persons after they converted to Islam have committed Muslim terror in the past as well.

The guy's surname's is French in origin.So maybe he's French/Arabic, leading to the tired,oft repeated chant before crime. His name's Mert Ney.
