Few people really want to know why people do these things. Some say they want a reason but when they are given the reason, they don't understand it because it judges themselves.

It's sad really.

sometimes we never know the reason because the reason cannot be grabbed?

The reason is simple. They judge others, so they do these things to judge themselves. It then accumulates with no where else to go until they decide to carry out a sentence upon the accused. Then they know they will be judged also, so they finish themselves off before they can get the satisfaction.

The origin of the problem is; people are taught to judge right from wrong, always and it brings destruction.

I'm assuming from that news article that he didn't get a chance to shoot or harm anyone. That's at least a plus.

It's kind of odd really. I would think these people that are involved in shooting up random places don't care who they're shooting, they just want to kill and/or harm people. Obviously the guy must've been having second thoughts and hesitated alerting the police to his suspicious actions. I would think if he was hell bent on killing people he would've gone in shooting without hesitation.

Glad it turned out well.

Honestly, people who do this kind of stuff always have an excuse. However, most people are tired of hearing the same old worn out ones. I understand that life is hard and that there are things that trigger this sort of an incident, but to go out and take your rage out on people who have absolutely nothing to do with your mental, social, economic, et cetera, state is bizarre to me. It always has been.

I read that he was carrying three clips with ten rounds each for a semi-automatic hand gun and that he had almost 50 rounds in his car. The police believe he was planning a massacre at the shopping centre as he made no effort to conseal his identity or had no clear escape planned. He was spotted by a shopper in the car park behaving oddly who then called police which resulted in him being shot. The fact that he was noticed behaving oddly might be an indicator of his mental state and affect. I believe the police won't release any details until they know that he was truely acting alone and unaided and that they are satisfyied the attending police who shot him acted appropriately in using lethal force.
It is an alarming crime for our city and country as massacres are few and far between, as is gun owner ship. I know this individual was in a gun club and a pistol shooters club, so that might explain his access to fire arms but not his motives....i guess we'll have to wait and see.
I sometimes go into the NSW Police Commisioners Office to Give their Media Manager all the media monitoring data from the Premiers Dept. So if i go on monday i might ask a few cheeky questions and see if they'll spill a bit.

Yeh thats tru i never see stuff like this happen in sydney though there was a scare after the VT shooting in the US. In my area someone pulled a gun out on uni students in penrith university. Y thay do this sometimes we will never know but reason is there most the time.

It now appears he commited suicide before police could arrest him. so i guess that explains why police refused to comment earlier, they probably wanted to gain access to his living quarters to see if it was connected to groups etc or if he was acting alone.....guess we'll never reall know what was going on with this poor kid.

So, did you ever find out more about this case? There's been no follow up whatsoever re the searching of his computer etc. I knew this young man...when he was a boy...I'm not just saying this, he was such a nice guy whom I thought could never harm a fly. I find it hard to believe that he'd ever could hurt someone else.
