New laws for Australian police
Shoot terrorists on sight
And don't negotiate

Sorry no link just heard it on me TV.


Australian new laws shoot terrorists do not negotiate

Big game changer.


New South Wales Police are being trained to shoot terrorists on sight rather than try to contain them and negotiate, in a change of policy prompted by recent attacks.

Acting Police Commissioner Nick Kaldas said the new approach was needed in the terrorist environment where "you're dealing with someone who is there with a preconceived aim of dying and who wants to kill as many people as they possibly can".

He said in that scenario, it was "far more urgent for police to intervene".

"In situations where people's lives are being threatened as we speak and perhaps being killed even - that would be a terrorist incident - in those cases we certainly would have to look at it differently.

Its the old.."Shes a Witch Burn Her" scenario from Monty Python. Throw her in the Pond if she floats she's a witch..if she drowns she was ok.

Thanks. Not really a law then:

NSW police are being trained to shoot first when dealing with armed attackers


Seems like a practical approach and good idea to me.

Doesn't seem to have much with "looking like something" as much as being an armed attacker.

BTW, this should be hoax binned.
Unless, of course, someone can show the new Australian law which the OP refers to. Because his link certainly does not.

In fairness, since this is the Breaking News forum, the thread title is supposed to be the title of the news article being discussed.

Can you find a news article with that headline? I can't.

K.
So that would be a "no."
So, is there such a law in Oz?

Can't. Unless it's a drone or a sky lantern.

But this OP is pretty clearly wrong.

Not a law, more a change of policy

www.businessinsider.com.au...


The new approach abandons the “contain and negotiate” policy in place for two decades. Kaldas said “contain and negotiate” will still be used for domestic situations, which can generally be resolved without incident the longer they last, but there was a new urgency required to deal with terrorism incidents. Last month a lone gunman, 15-year-old Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar, shot and killed 58-year-old accountant Curtis Cheng, who worked for the police, outside the NSW Police headquarters in Parramatta. The acting commissioner said that in dealing with a “terrorism environment” and extremists with a “preconceived aim of dying and [who] wants to kill as many people as possible” it was “far more urgent for us to intervene”.

I messaged the QP to change the heading .

I've just edited the hit-and-run OP to include news article. No laws, just a change in policy so that terrorists shooting people with guns get shot immediately.

"How do we know they're terrorists?"

"Oh they'll be the guys firing AK47s and wearing suicide vests."

Problem.
In this forum it is required that the title match the news headline.



Headline of source news article: (must be the actual, word-for-word, original headline)


That means there is only one other bin for this thread.
