Fast forward to last night when this happened .............

Hope both officers make a full and successful recovery.

Kudo's to the officer that dealt with the threat in spite of being stabbed............Maybe he should head over your way and give some of 'New Yorks Finest' some lessons in marksmanship and how to economise on ammo.............

    Are Australian police officers armed under normal circumstances, or was this one of those special situations where sidearms are authorized?

    Aussie Police carry them as a matter of course and are armed while on duty.

    Over here the police are unarmed...........but have access to firearms if responding to an incident that requires them..........

    My town has a college and a university. The former with a meager middle-eastern student body and the latter with a majority middle-eastern / Arabic student body. It genuinely concerns me and I am truly surprised we've not yet seen any ISIL symbols or garb yet. Yet.

    I'm ready for em. Not sure who else is though.

    Glad those Aussie officers were armed and took care of business in a most efficient manner. Hope both have no problems recovering from their wounds from the attack.

    As to the attacker, put him out somewhere in the outback; dingos need to eat, same as worms.
