Watching the men run away makes me shake my head. It seems that Australia has a serious lack of men!

Yep, if every able bodied male grabbed chairs/flower pot/sign/stick/rock and rushed the stabber- throw whatever at him. He'll have to react to it- tackle him- control the knife- and kick him in the face until the cops get there.

That’s exactly what I said to my wife. I’d send her and the kids to safety while I grabbed a clothes rack or whatever. I’m not running away, I’m running towards danger!

You can never know for certain until it's actually put to the test. My thinking has been greatly influenced by what my son told me about his service in Iraq. Battalion XO of an Army NG unit that saw lots of action. Said you never know how someone will react until the metal starts flying. He saw "badasses" curl up in a fetal position, and the scared skinny kid come through. In general, he had little regard for a certain armed "profession". Acknowledged that these are generalities, with exceptions.

On a personal note, I know my values, know what I think and hope I would do, but admit I can't predict for certain. At my age I hope I make it through whatever is left of my life without being put to that test. Peace.

I saw a pic on ABC News, the psycho was riding up on the escalator, you can see the big knife in his right hand. At the top of the escalator stood a civilian, he had a four foot long flower pot made of metal, something like that, heavy and 4 feet long, and he was waiting on Psycho and going to attack him then and there. I don't know what happened there, the news caster didn't explain and it was a still photo not video.

So, at least one man had the guts to confront the Psycho.

So, he's known to police but they can't "formally" identify him. Sounds like sandbagging until the story loses some steam, to me.

I guess I was wrong, or not completely right, anyway. Sounds like a deranged nut job.

Some of you blokes are just too ready to jump in, in complete ignorance of the facts, to let your prejudices have full rein. I thought it was only the left which would seek to capitalise on tragedies to make petty political points.

There's just so much nonsense to wade through. It wasn't a terrorist event. The bloke wasn't a Muslim. He was an Australian, with a history of mental illness, and according to his parents and some of the women he dated, socially inept and desperate for a relationship - an incel in other words.

Self defence isn't illegal here. The men didn't all run away - several confronted him, while others helped women and children to safety. Those who confronted him are being hailed for it, not criticised. Would you armchair heroes have done any better?

Yes, people don't carry here. But they never did. People in Australia didn't routinely go armed even when it was legal. Australia is a safe place - crime rates are low and have steadily been dropping for decades. And incidents like this are vanishingly rare. I remember well the last time there was a mass killing in a shopping centre, because I was there - and it was 33 years ago. It was the first time too. However as this and the other stabbing this week have demonstrated, that doesn't mean we are cowards - people will step up nonetheless, and confront evildoers.

I don't need to be lectured or sneered at about our gun laws either. Especially by those who have no clue what they are. I lived through all of what followed Port Arthur, and I don't agree with much of what changed. However, I quite like living in a country where people don't generally feel the need to go armed to do the shopping.
