Is this really where we want to be as Australians? Video, quite a hero!

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-30/video-shows-anti-semitic-road-rage-in-melbourne/10763556

A man has been caught on video making "vile" anti-Semitic remarks to a rabbi during a road rage incident in Melbourne in what a Jewish anti-hate group says is one in a series of similar outbursts against Jews in Australia.
From the passenger seat of a car waiting at traffic lights on North Road in Caulfield, in the city's south-east, the man can be heard saying: "Would you like me to get out and show you what Hitler did?"
The man then called the rabbi a "f**king selfish c***t of a Jew".
Mel Gibson back in town?

"It’s understood detectives from the NSW Homicide Squad have recommended the South African financial adviser should not face charges for the fatal struggle"

I'm betting a mint some millenial or some feminist amongst the ranks will charge him. He should've asked him to leave politely not punch him :drunk:
How is that a “home invasion”?

Years ago in Sydney when returning to a friend’s flat after being out drinking all night, I got back to the flat, walked in, banged on my mate’s bedroom door, put my soft drink down on the kitchen table, then looked around and realised I was in the wrong flat.

I’d gone up two flights of stairs instead of one.

I am the home invasion expert!

There's something seriously sick and wrong about this. The owners died and the guy simply moved in on his own accord? Who gave him permission to do that? He didn't have title to the home or a rental agreement and just decided to move into a random house? What a ****** country we live in! That's a disgrace!
Lawyer Barbara Coorey told the program the husband-and-wife real estate agents should have contacted the NSW trustee after Ms Grimes died. The couple declined to comment to the program.

- I wonder if they got anything out of it?

What about this guy? Uses the video of 50 dead for political purposes.

The New Zealand government has criticised Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, after he repeatedly showed video footage of the Christchurch mosque attacks to crowds at election rallies.

Erdoğan said he would send home “in caskets” anyone attempting such an attack in Turkey, which he claimed was not the work of a lone gunman.


New Zealand’s foreign minister, Winston Peters, rebuked Erdoğan for using footage of the shootings, saying it could endanger New Zealanders abroad. Erdoğan also displayed extracts from a “manifesto” posted online by the suspected attacker and later taken down.

Erdoğan, facing an uphill battle in local elections at the end of the month due to Turkey’s deep economic difficulties, which include high inflation and a construction crisis, claimed part of the Christchurch suspect’s manifesto was to keep Turks out of Europe, and said the attack was part of a worldwide campaign of Islamophobia.

Ironically, Turkey’s vice-president, Fuat Oktay, had earlier called for all sides to stop using inflammatory language in the wake of the Christchurch attacks.

Some good news, has run out of appeals.

A man accused of being the "world's largest" child porn facilitator has been extradited to the United States.

Eric Eoin Marques was surrendered to FBI Agents at Dublin Airport this morning, and is due in court on Monday.

Mr Marques' extradition was sought by the US over allegations that he conspired to distribute and advertise child pornography on the dark web.

He is accused of renting out his vast network of servers to websites such as Lolita City and PedoEmpire which trade in the buying and selling of the most extreme forms of child abuse material. He is also alleged to have profited greatly from this activity, earning €1.15 million over a five-year period.

With Wednesday’s ruling, Marques has used up all his appeals, as the European Court of Human Rights has declined to hear his case.
