Chilling radio communications describe Bourke St attacker as 'armed, dangerous and psychotic' | Sky News AustraliaA Coronial inquest into the Bourke Street massacre will on Tuesday hear from the police officer who tried to convince convicted killer James Gargasoulas to surrender as he led police in a car chase across Melbourne. \n\nThe inquest was played chilling radio communications from police units as they followed Gargasoulas from his home in Windsor where he stabbed his brother Angelo as he led them to the Melbourne CBD. \n\nGargasoulas was described as “armed, dangerous and psychotic” in radio excerpts from January 20,2017, when he killed six people and injured 27 more. Armed, dangerous & psychotic, and the police response........let him get into the pedestrian laden CBD in the hope he will calm down. Had he known fatal vehicle stopping force would be applied, he probably would have complied with an order to stop well before the cbd. Shocking response. He certainly did play the police as cowards. Just hope police are ready if there’s a next time. Not confident of that though. The police officer tries to reason with a lunatic. How's that workin' for ya?

Why it doesn't pay to care: gender equality scorecard shows caring not highly valuedNurses and carers ask why they cannot stay in caring roles and still move towards equal pay with male managers. Caring is unproductive to the bottom line, so they expect you to pretend to care while doing your chores. No time to listen to the feelings of others it requires an open system where all concerned are not under companies pressure for profits. Old people need time for everything. It is supply and demand economics, there are more people who are qualified carers, if there was a shortage wages in these fields would be higher which in turn would attract others. Nothing at all to do with Gender Equality, just the laws of economics Encouraging women in STEM careers is great, but until we value 'women's work' we'll never achieve equality
