Makes me sick reading about this guys history and all the outstanding warrants that he had on him. This was preventable.
Victorian Government needs to get rid of the bail justice system asap. Anyone can basically be a bail justice and there is little to no training at all to become one.
Not exactly true Trip ess.
However, that is why it is called a "Justice" system. Police should not have the power for unfettered detainment of suspects, and they need to present their case, they obviously did not here.
More legitimately, we should be questioning a system where some-one can be in jail on bail for 18 months and then either found not guilty at court or police drop charges due to lack of evidence or they find the real villain.
Reality is that this nut-job had not committed any serious offenses until he stabbed his bro on Friday. Probably impossible to protect our society from lone madmen who want to kill and maim, without all of us giving up massive freedoms.
Easy after the event to be wise, but it doesn't bring those killed back to life.
