I hope judges, lawyers and politicians take note. Until we tighten our laws this madness will continue. The Sydney Siege was NOT about terrorism or Islamic fanaticism, it was about happens when our judicial system fails us. This man should have been behind bars not behind a gun.
Bravo to the police who chose safety of hostages above that of the fake sheik. Bravo to the media who chose the safety of the hostages over broadcasting the videos sent to their journos by the madman. Bravo to the public for choosing the safety of the hostages over the temptation to rant over social media. Bravo to the woman who posted #Iwillridewithyou on Twitter for choosing unity over division.
Prayers and thoughts to those who lost their lives and to the families who mourn a senseless crime.
