Police woman on tv just now was pretty adamant there are less than 30 hostages.

my guess is the initial estimate of 13ish may be about right.

It's being reported that the employee who escaped left the door open, with a stick of tactical troopers at the door. It's gonna get busy soon.

The employee coming from fire escape or other door was followed by armed police??


The policeman was outside the building, you could just not see him behind the wall.

Not a knock on Australians, but DANG the police tape used there is dumb. Checkered blue and white? What lovely calming colors.

I don't. They KNOW.

They aren't saying.

Hell that's been going on for hours.

Anyone else think it was weird seeing a shield driver putting the pistol on top and sticking his head over?

Never been a cop and don't really know all tactics but that seemed dumb/weird. There's a peephole for a reason.

Anyone else think that they keep repeating the livestream footage over and over so that the criminal doesn't know what's going on outside?

I'm looking at 3 different livestreams and all have suddenly begun to loop through the same video where the hostages escape.

Everything police use in Australia is checkered blue and white. Their cars, it's on the uniform, it covers their police stations etc.
