Alleged Sydney CBD stabbing attacker had 'material linked to mass crimes'



A knife-wielding man who allegedly went on a rampage through Sydney's CBD, leaving one woman dead and another injured, was found in possession of material about "mass casualties around the world".

The man, later identified as 21-year-old Mert Nay, allegedly fatally stabbed a woman, 21, whose body was found in a unit on Clarence Street about 3pm on Tuesday.

Watch the video above

A short time earlier, a 41-year-old woman was found with non life-threatening stab wounds to the back. She was taken to hospital in a stable condition.

During the alleged rampage, Nay was captured on video running through the CBD streets, shouting “Allahu akbar” while being chased by members of the public who managed to apprehend him.



The shouts of "Allahu Akbar" could have been more an attention-seeking attempt, as opposed the an actual terror attack. The cops aren't actually treating this as "a terror attack" per se. Luckily, heroic bystanders cornered the madman before he could hurt anyone else...

From: news.com.au

Today’s shocking events in Sydney could’ve been far worse if this was America


If it had been some US city and not Sydney, and a man with an assault rifle and not a knife, we’d be having a different conversation right now.

Those who are especially fond of America’s Second Amendment often like to say that the way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

As we’ve witnessed in Sydney today, a more effective way of halting a bad guy’s apparent determination to inflict harm on multiple people is to make it difficult for him to have a gun in the first place.

Australia’s most populous city was plunged into panic at 2pm when a man allegedly stabbed a woman, seemingly at random, at a hotel near Wynyard Station on the corners of King and Clarence streets.

A woman’s body was later discovered in a nearby residence, her throat slashed, with police alleging she was killed by the man.

During a brief rampage, police allege he attempted to attack “a number” of other people with his butcher’s knife, about 30 centimetres long, but they managed to evade him.

Within minutes, a group of several heroic bystanders confronted and chased him, using two chairs from a cafe and a plastic milk crate to bring him down.

The men pinned him to the ground until police arrived.

But consider this. Had this alleged attacker been armed with an AR-15 assault rifle, as so many of America’s recent mass shooters have been, the outcome would’ve been far worse.

In those incidents in the US, which we seem to hear about every week or so, someone wanders into a shopping centre, place of worship, office building, music festival or school and unleashes carnage.

In roughly the same amount of time that the man in Sydney sparked uncertainty and terror, those Americans can slaughter countless innocent people.

We don’t know the motive of the alleged Sydney attacker at this early stage.

But what we can all surely agree on is that Australia’s strict gun laws should never be watered down.

Our priority must continue to be to have the strictest possible oversight to keep firearms out of the hands of those who wish to use them to kill others.

Any efforts to take a backwards step on the legacy of the government in 1996 to toughen our gun laws would be a recipe for disaster.

America might believe that a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with one.

But in Australia, we prefer a situation where a group of top blokes with some chairs and a milk crate can stop a bad guy with a knife.

He nearly was. If you watch the videos, one of them has him jumping on someones car who then accelerated and he flew off the back and fell to the ground quite hard.

Tell that to the NRA who is constantly down here lobbying our politicians about loosening our gun laws. So much so there are calls for a Royal Commision into NRA interference in Australian laws.

If your NRA wants to interfere with us then we take license to say what we want about your laws. See how that works?

Make sure you have ALL the facts before shooting your mouth off next time eh?

Yeah lets just forget the hundreds of people whose lives were potentially saved because he ONLY had a knife. Had it been a gun many more people would have been injured or killed.

Again, THINK before you shoot your mouth off with nonsense OK?

Wow, way to twist words.

The NRA is in Australia, interfering with our laws trying to get our gun laws watered down. What part of that VERY SIMPLE CONCEPT is so difficult to understand?

(Hint: Its easy to understand but you are deliberately twisting it to suit your own agenda)

Whats that got to do with the fact the NRA is here trying to water down our laws and yet you complain that we comment on American laws? Please explain how that is not completely hypocritical.

And you are using her to push your "More guns" agenda. By your own metric you are "horrible" for doing so.

LOL. Yep, keep that hypocrisy going for all to see.

The Police are saying that while he had terrorist stuff on him, there are no known links to terrorist organisations. He was a "try hard" basically. You wouldn't know this though as you have done ZERO research about this, you're just parroting the old "MOAR GUNS" disproven nonsense and hoping someone will believe you.

How the brave actions of civillians on the streets of sydney gets twisted into no guns I will never understand.
Other than "never let a crisis go to waste".

Err they will be asking you to hand them in....

Well if the American NRA wasn't actively using the incident to call for more guns in Australia and the loosening of our gun laws then perhaps we wouldnt be talking about American gun control would we?

Why are you ignoring the fact the the NRA is actively getting itself involved in this incident hey? And further to that, why are we Aussies not allowed to respond to that hey?

Seems a very convenient way to silence the opposition - make claims then cry victim when those claims are challenged.

How pathetic.

So the NRA can come and make comments about his incident and Australia having strict gun laws - and yet we cant respond?

Why not?

I simply pointed out the anti american agenda you are attempting to push during an event that has nothing to do with america.
Sorry having your hate exposed seems to have set you off.
Perhaps you should anti american rant in a thread designed for such?
or not
no worries

It isn't Anti-American, genius. Calling for more gun control to SAVE LIVES is NOT anti-American, no matter how desperately you want it to be.

Go push your "MOAR GUNS" agenda elsewhere. Its not wanted here.

I guess english is funny down there.
No where in the op is america mentioned.
You brought that. Funny to see you attempt to distance yourself from such.
Using a lady stabbed to say in america it would be so much more worse is actually anti american.
Also no where have I posted anything about "MOAR GUNS" perhaps you are off your meds today?

nice try tho........you people fooled the aussies you wont fool us
