I've been watching this unfold, dreading the outcome. Praise to the cops for acting decisively when it mattered; condolences to the families of the innocent victims.
Already the talking heads are bringing up 'mental illness'.
Personally I think they're delusional.

So sad. The media made mention of the fact that they were flying a Muslim flag that indicates extremism. It is a fact that terrorism is on the rise. Be prepared!
I saw a blurb on my Internet home page of extremists beheading Christian children.

Sydney is my home town and we are all fine, Sydney is a great place to live, and a safe one to visit, this was just a violent act by a single criminal, he was facing jail for a few reasons, he had a long history of anti social behavior including for sending hateful letters to the families of our deceased Afghanistan soldiers, he was also facing sex charges for the abuse of minors, he was also charged with being an accessory to the murder of his wife, his girlfriend is charged with committing the murder of his wife, just a criminal who has a long history with the Police and our Courts of Law, you guys in the USA have your share of them, the fact that he made this an Islam thing got him worldwide publicity, more than he deserved, I think that he planned to negotiate a surrender and thereby be a famous prisoner, as he was going to prison anyway but a hostage thing is hard to control and a few of them saw him fall a bit asleep so they took a chance to get free, in the struggle his shotgun went off, details still to be revealed, when the gun was fired then the Police stormed in and they fell on him so you all would have seen the flashbang when our Police moved in, he dies and two of the hostages also died, I don't think that this was his plan but being on his own the he had no one to help him keep control of 15 persons and he could not stay awake, This guy was a nutcase who had been disowned by all who know him, the city is back at work, we don't just lay down Aussies are as tough as anyone, this man lived and died the life of a coward and he wont be missed by anyone, we lost a very well respected lady barrister and the manager of the Lindt Cafe, he seems to have been the one fighting for control of the gun, as brave a man as any Aussie ever has been and we have some Heroes, he will be remembered as one of them, the coward who took these innocent persons prisoner, he wont be remembered at all.

The ba***rd was on bail, accused of complicity in his wife's murder ⁉️ .
He also had some 40-odd charges of a sexual nature and convictions for sending "obscene" mail to the families of deceased Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan. He also claimed supernatural powers �� .
At least, we Australian taxpayers won't have to pay for his imprisonment for however many years! He's no great loss!

Sure we do Stick but a criminal has no difficulty finding them which makes gun controls a farce. Neville described it perfectly.

Well put Neville, the guy was a sicko. Living in a democracy is liberating. Sadly there is a price to be paid from time to time. Thinking of you all........
