I know right. Even the professional witnesses got confused when the shooter at port arthur started the massacre in the wrong place.
"t is evident that the massacre was planned to happen on the ferry which sailed to the Isle of the Dead every day. The victims were to be eighty elderly American tourists who had come in two coaches. But the plan went awry because the sailing time of the ferry had changed from 1.30 to 2.00 pm.
All the preparations were made for a 1.30 massacre, so the killer began his work at the Broad Arrow Cafe at 1.30, instead of on the ferry at 2.00.
Here is some evidence suggesting that the plan was to kill the Americans at 1.30 on the way to the Isle of the Dead where tourists are shown the ancient convict cemetery -
(a) The gunman had tried to buy a ticket for the 1.30 sailing.
(b) When the gunman began pulling out his weapons in the Cafe, one Professional witness [Anthony Nightingale] stood up shouting "No, no, not here!!" If it was not meant to be "here", then it was meant to be somewhere else. Nightingale was shot for he had obviously given the game away."
Interesting story. Reminds me of the underpants bomber screw up. A smart dressed man got the suspect through a bypass in security. If it wasn't for a bunch of random civilians becoming alarmed at the suspicious activity the plot would have worked. The smart dressed accomplist got away though.
The idea that it was to disarm the Australian people would make sense... If there was some political unease/unrest. But there is none. at all. Fuck, even America has more political unrest/unease then us
