‘It was a deliberate act’: Police arrest two men after they ‘drove a car into Christmas rush hour crowds’

From BBC – The man who deliberately drove a car into a crowd in Melbourne is a drug user with mental health issues but no known terrorism links, police say.

The Australian citizen of Afghan descent was taken into custody after a struggle at the scene of the incident.

More than a dozen pedestrians, including a toddler, have been injured with two fighting for life in hospital after a car ‘deliberately’ ploughed into rush hour crowds in the heart of Melbourne.

A white Suzuki SUV with p-plates crashed into a large group of commuters and shoppers at the corner of Melbourne’s busy Elizabeth Street and Flinders Street at 4.41pm on Thursday.

The crash injured 19 people, two in a critical condition while a pre-school aged child has been left with serious head injuries but is in a stable condition.

    Thanks BCF for the update. I was running this one too, but hadn’t seen the straight Christian white male being arrested.

    • The headlines should read: Progressive Multi-Culti Fantasies in Melbourne.

      • Yaacov ben Moshe

        Yes, but here is the thing; the fantasy begins to fold back on them and destroy their imaginary world. Multi-Cultis were much better off with “lone wolf” and “ISIS sympathizer” explanations. What they are actually allowing into the narrative here is that Moslems, even those “unconnected” to terrorist networks, are liable at any time to commit mass casualty events. Normal people with observational abilities unclouded by progressive ideology will then make the connection there must be a reason that so much bloodshed is being perpetrated by immigrants and their children from one particular cultural background.

        I am having the same issue with Pale moon, explorer, and firefox

    Why is there not a bullet hole in his head? Why waste the time with the courts who will feed those worthless POS, and probably claim that they had a sexual emergency, and be out on the streets in a couple of weeks?

  • ontario john

    Just because the driver is a muslim we must not jump to conclusions. Muslims driving into Christians has never happened before. Remember, Justin says diversity is our strength.

  • Blacksmith

    Yeah, I am sure he was a well integrated Aussie from Afghanistan. Nothing to do with pisslam for sure……

  • Observer

    Then ban all immigration from Muslim countries because of the very high rates of mental health issues probably due to generations of first-cousin marriages which poses severe risks both due to high healthcare costs if not also security costs.

    See I didn’t even have to mention “the Religion of Peace” to justify this and upset the perpetually offended SJW’s or PC Police!

    • canminuteman

      Zoolander wants to (or already has) gotten rid of rules that demanded that potential immigrants be healthy. Now we can import all kinds of people who will consume more in medical services than they will eve pay in taxes!

      • Liberal Progressive

        But it’s racist not to allow all the worlds sick to come here for free treatment! It’s only a billion or two people.

        It is your humanitarian duty to work harder to pay for these people for the centuries of colonialism from which you have benefited because I say so!

      • Frances

        Not to mention knock native-born Canadians out of the line-up for our rationed healthcare.

  • David Murrell

    Nope. No signs of terrorism here. Nosiree. Move along, move along folks, there’s nothing to see here.

    • ontario john

      The Canadian media does not know what the motive can be. But we know it has nothing to do with islam.

  • Dana Garcia

    Attempted murder is how muslims recognize the Christmas holiday.

    • Watchman

      Well, their religious holy month of Ramadan is usually the month where the death toll from jihadist attacks rises dramatically. So for them, Religious days = Days to Kill, even in their own religion.

  • Dave

    “with mental health issues but no known terrorism links” Really? that excuse is getting a little stale. But is does show that mental health issues are rampant in islam, or at least seem to be.

    • Mal

      Couldn’t have anything to do with fourteen centuries of consanguinity, could it?

      • Dave

        I would think thats a good starting point.

      • Frances

        Of course not, you racist and Islamophobe. It’s all the fault of the white Aussies who failed to facilitate his integration into their society because they wouldn’t change said society into an image of his back home.

    • moraywatson

      This incident isn’t ‘linked’ to terrorism, it IS terrorism. Yet another muslim attempting to strike fear into the hearts of the unbelievers. And of course you have to have mental health issues to follow through on the edicts of islam.

      • Norman_In_New_York

        They have already struck fear in the hearts of politicians who are morally incapable of leveling with the governed.

        • moraywatson

          Some politicians are fearful. Others are too ignorant to determine that there is a threat. And then there are the appeasing members of the cabal that believe penance is required for their ‘white privilege’.

    • Watchman

      They didn’t find a Al Quaeda ID card and playbook on him, so they can claim, “no known terrorism links”.

  • Mal

    They believe that people won’t know that an attack on the public by a muslim is terrorism? Or do they just hope that?
    The authorities’ desperation to deny the peril is so sickeningly obvious.

    • H

      I’m not sure “desperation” is the correct word here – how about “determination”? “We WILL shove multiculturalism down all your stupid throats whether any of you want it or not. Now open wide.”

    • P_F

      Believe me there are many stupid libtards around in the western world who wholeheartedly accept this narrative. islam is a religion of peace & tolerance, muslims mean no harm to anybody.

  • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

    /r/melbourne is full of people claiming it’s drugs and mental illness
    and that the definition of terrorism does not include religion.

    /r/australia has people posting stories about regular car accidents and stories
    about senior drivers to bury this one.

    Pathetic.

  • Mark

    Liberals can’t keep their stories straight. Drugs were harmless and should be legalized I thought? Just like Muslims are peaceful and aren’t Terrorists.

    • Watchman

      The apologists say that if drugs were involved then islam isn’t involved because imams have assured that is against all drugs and the proof is that alcohol is banned and even smoking tobacco is frowned upon.

      What they don’t say is that muslim drug addicts who feel that their life is hopeless might feel suicidal. The problem for the muslim is that they are afraid of not making it into the muslim heaven (Jannah) because of their bad acts and they know that only one thing that theologically guarantees entry into Jannah is martyrdom. The same is true for thieves, rapists, murderers, depressed, or mentally ill muslims: the guaranteed way to Jannah is through martyrdom to live forevermore with 72 virgins.

      When the politicians, police and social workers claim that drug addiction, criminal behaviour or mental health means that the person could not be acting out a jihadist terrorist attack for islam, they are wrong and were deliberately misled by the imams they have talked to.

    Relax, guys. Police says: ‘It was a deliberate act’, but not terror related. They were ‘mental’.
