A guy suffering substance abuse & mental illness (incl. paranoid delusions & hallucinations) has his passport cancelled & is placed on a terror watch-list. If the authorities knew all this, why wasn't a court order issued to admit him into psychiatric care?! #BourkeStreet #auspol | 11 h

Riposa in pace, Sisto. You were a true gentleman, a stylish Italian of old, a friend to all who passed through your doors to enjoy a plate of gnocchi & watermelon granita. You didn’t deserve this. Melbourne won’t be the same without you. #SistoMalaspina #BourkeStreet #Melbournepic.twitter.com/CKzxyjDiDM | 11 h
We had a tragedy here in Australia yesterday. A vile human took it upon himself to bring terror to #BourkeStreet. One innocent man died. Thankfully, he didn’t have a gun. If he did more lives could have been lost.
Learn from your mistakes.

i’m blocked by #matthewguy. any sign of him trying to politicise today’s #bourkestreet attack?
while most of us are in a somber mood, i’d hate to think there are strategists somewhere out there tonight with ear-to-ear grins. | 11 h
