    "Police believe it was a deliberate act, coming at the end of a suspended police chase, and have confirmed it had no links to terrorism.

    Witnesses reported the man doing burnouts and doughnuts near Flinders St station, leaning out of his window and yelling at bystanders.

    It’s believed the man was involved in a stabbing at Windsor early this morning. Police allege he and his brother fought at a house, and their mother was also assaulted.

    The man left the scene and was driving a car with a woman beside him, initially believed to be a hostage. She got out of the car at Bolte bridge before he drove into the city.

    The man is known to police, with an “extensive” background of family violence, and known mental health issues, and drug use."

    If it ain't terrorism, can't help thinking that recent events ain't give him the idea?

    Even when the police shoot the offender after he's mown down dozens of people and killed a baby it's still bigger news than the actual act. Ridiculous

    :(.

    Questions whether it's a hobby or other
    And re-questions the term Terrorism and it's definition

    Thinking political correctness has gone too far

    Sad to see a new trend developing with cars and trucks being used as weapons to carry out "suspected" terrorist attacks. I wonder how long before every major shopping / high street will have to be totally pedestrianised to prevent such attacks. I've just read a couple of news articles that state that Dimitrious Gargasoula is Greek (Kurdish) Muslim that was witnessed burning a Bible a couple of days ago as well as posting various religious themed comments on Facebook. Reading between the lines it does seem that this individual has flipped out and went on a rampage, using religion as an excuse. I could be wrong though.

    Instead of branding things as 'terrorism' I'd much prefer it if the newspapers/tv reports were far more clinical in the reporting. Name the dead, numbers and known surrounding events, name the acts the person committed without opinion. Too often the actual facts are being hidden and a narrative projected.

    probably suffering from mental health as usual

    The media and the governments want to divert any attempt to call this a terrorist attack

    And if you believe that it isn't a terrorist attack then no matter what I reply it will not answer your question.

    That's an utterly bizarre response. Have you ever been to Melbourne?

    if there is a link to terrorism they'll find it but he was driving around in circles at that junction for quite a while goading the police like a joyrider, loads of pedestrians there & he wasn't trying to hit any of them
