Amidst the horror of what happened in Bourke St today, my god, I’m grateful we have the kind of police that we do, the systems and protocols we use in these situations, and - absolutely, completely - STRICT, UNBENDING GUN LAWS. #auspol #bourkest
Betting odds shift further in favour of a Labor victory after terror attack in state election final weeks. 1:35 to 1:30. #auspol #BourkeSt.
2) Yet when brainwashed loser (likely ISIS-driven) explodes in lethal frenzy in #BourkeSt the coward makes no wider cultural judgement. Just shrugs: No biggie, Melbourne. You just gotta get used to this shit. What, no condemnation of toxic (Islamic) masculinity? #Vicpol.
#BourkeStreet attack: Important thread about mental illness and radicalization. #BourkeSt.
Let me get this straight. Dutton, the man with ultimate responsibility for Federal crime agencies, has just used a press conference about #BourkeSt to say ‘Labor aren’t up to it’, politicising the tragedy to campaign against Shorten’s Labor Opposition. Are you kidding me?.
@theage Gunned down? Or shot to subdue? It was Bourke Street, Melbourne, not the streets of Laredo. Deep breath and spare us the hyperbole. #BourkeStreet #BourkeSt.
Dutton: these are very difficult circimstances to stop How about state and federal governments provide mental health services properly? #BourkeSt #auspol.
Sick of privileged white people who sip their Italian coffees and think they are worldly and multicultural living in their all white crime free suburb who criticise our PM for calling out Islamic extremists. Go fuck off, you pretentious wankers! #BourkeSt.
Any media at the 3pm Dutton presser want to help us out here please? Medivac needs Canberra authorisation. #bourkest Tag a journo who might know someone there please.
In 2011 Fairfax reported Morrison urged shadow Cabinet to capitalise on electorate fear of Muslims in the community. Well worth remembering. #BourkeSt.
Flowers and gifts and cards left outside Pelligrinis have been collected and passed on to Sisto Malaspina’s family. #BourkeSt.
Some straightforward advice for your armchair warriors @LiberalVictoria #BourkeSt.
Why can’t it be both Islamic terrorism & mental health issues? They don’t seem mutually exclusive. The reality is, this type of attack is *mostly* carried out by Islamic extremists. That’s not a coincidence. #BourkeSt #MelbourneAttack.
@Cameron_John @YaThinkN Trolleyman, thank you whoever and wherever you are. Your unassuming heroics at the worst of times gives us hope. #BourkeSt #trolleyman.
I agree. My impression of the man waving a knife around trying to (and succeeding) in stabbing people looks like a person who has had a mental breakdown to me. And yet people focus on his as if THAT is the motive. #BourkeStreet #BourkeSt.
We would like to recognise the incredible efforts of our @VictoriaPolice colleagues, our emergency service partners and bystanders who stepped in to assist during the #BourkeSt incident yesterday. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this tragic event..
An awful thing in Melbourne’s CBD today. So well managed though. Brave people responded appropriately. What if the #BourkeSt incident had happened with someone who had a #automaticrifle though?.
The stabbing of people and threats are not the most heinous things to come out of the #BourkeSt attack. The most despicable thing will be Matthew Guy’s attempt at politicising this inhumane act for his own greedy, selfish ambitions. That, is truly fucked up. #auspol.
@Goldsteinm8ty @wrongdorey progressive saviour complex you learn something every day from the right wing and how they love to label people , thanks for the respectful debate #BourkeSt #auspol.
Sad to hear people say that @MatthewGuyMP used the terrible & radical Islamic terrorist attack @ #BourkeSt, for political point scoring. He did not, that is a disgraceful lie. But when will people learn?.
If what they say is true about #BourkeSt How the hell was the planning for this missed? No ongoing terror.
And I am extraordinarily grateful for, and proud of, all our Emergency services and first responders. ❤️ #melbourne #BourkeSt.
Received upwards of 30 RUOK messages this evening. Yes, I am okay. Yes, I was in Bourke St (again) when it all went down but this time, I was 2 blocks away so I was unaffected. #melbourne #BourkeSt.
Not really what we want a legend like @IAmJericho to see but with what unfortunately happened at #BourkeSt he had to see it.

Someone has died from their wounds. This is so sad. #bourkest.
