This is nuts! Shootings at a suburban shopping centre in the middle of the day (and during the week many Australian's minds are on the Port Arthur massacre). What are we becoming?
I know, very frightening. And from the news reports, it seems to have something to do with bikie gangs, or organised crime, and for that to just be played out in public, in a shopping centre??!! Extremely scary.
Two well-known (in the Lebanese, criminal and police circles anyway) Sydney crime families who run 'legitimate businesses'. This shooting is payback for the recent Condell Park shooting. Police are still searching for shooter and telling the warring sides not to 'take matters into their own hands. Three chances of that - Buckley's, none (and you can guess this word) all. The shooter wants to hope they find him before anyone assocuated with the other family does or he needs to know how to hide real good and for a really long time (like the rest of his life). All scuttlebutt from Lebanese friend, who is not involved and doesn't want to be (as most Lebanese people aren't and don't).
The man suspected of killing Hamad Assaad was murdered a few weeks later.
Why doesn't this surprise me?
