Last week there was a sudden stabbing of a Sydney teacher at a bus stop one evening by a crazed person who attacked him while he was waiting there. This was apparently caused by a combination of drugs and mental illness which resulted in this fatal incident . It turned out it was one of my nephew’s teacher who he admired and he and his classmates was devastated at the shocking news . What made it worse was that he saw him the day before he was murdered in such shocking circumstances and could not comprehend why something like this could occur in an area that was suppose to be a safe environment .Thoughts and prayers go to his family and the children at this time and lets hope that the Government put more security procedures in public areas such as bus stops and train stations especially in the late evenings for the safety of the public .

  • Very sad and your thoughts go out to the family at this time of the year,l see crazy people alot drunk or on drugs when l catch transport and you just avoid them.


  • yeah so many crazies in the city though! try to take any public transport and they are everywhere. I was on the train and this dude dressed as a lady had a fake dog in a purse and was pointing out people on the train to the dog. i got creeped out because my little one year old was with me, at the time. Hubby was as well. We got off and this person followed us for a fair bit. W e thought that we had lost them in the crowd but later went to take the train and here was that person again! We got the bus instead lol.


  • That is so horrible. Far too much drug related things going on


  • What a tragedy, There are too many horrible tragedies resulting from drug use.


  • A shocking and sad tragedy.


  • Its tragic news.. But it seems anyone can get off anything these day claiming mental illness and drugs. Im kind of sick off hearing that excuse. My Brother has a mental illness and im p***ed off to the max that they get off by that excuse. (he has) They should be treated the same and be punished the same as everybody else that does a crime. Esspecially one that ends in a tragic loss. I hope your nephew and his friends get some help to get some closuer over this terribe crime.. My sympathy goes to every one who knew this person…

    • Thank You , Yes he was charged .


  • How terrible. I haven’t heard about it. In which part of Sydney did it happen? Poor man! :-(


  • That is terrible for all involved. The ripple effect of tragedies makes such incidents widely felt. Something needs to be done to improve safety and to help curb drug use and to support those suffering mental illnesses. So many goods points raised by you.
