Bourke Street attack: Fundraiser for hero 'Trolley Man' passes $100kYesterday, it was revealed that 'Trolley Man' was homeless. Now, a crowd-funding campaign has raised more than $110,000 for the brave bystander. 9News Be great if people were willing to help the homeless without having to do stuff like this..... but people love their virtue signaling. Be interesting to see how a homeless, ex drug abuser spends that much money... time will tell I guess... Yes the fact is he has spent most of his life committing crimes against himself and against innocent people and is homeless by choice (a place has been provided but he chooses to live rough). I hope he uses the money to turn himself around.

‘Trolley hero’ praised for running at Bourke St knife manA MAN with a shopping trolley has been praised for rushing towards danger in a bid to subdue a knife-wielding attacker who had just stabbed three people in Melbourne. If he was a licensed gun holder; he could have stopped this mongrel. We cannot keep relying on police when these situations develop I’m sure he knew he could have been injured. He risked his safety and life to try and save others. We praise him for his actions! So much respect for this guy! Glad he is ok.

Bourke Street 'Trolley Man' wanted for questioning over spate of burglariesA man dubbed a “homeless hero” after he tried to ram a shopping trolley into the terrorist in the Bourke Street attack is wanted for questioning over a spate of recent burglaries, police have revealed. Ned Kelly MyHero just got a bit more interesting. Can whoever is currently Australian PM pardon him or something? If these allegations are anything at all. Or can the Police pretend he's a Catholic Priest and just like cover up his burglaries as if he was merely taking cherries? only in Oz!! So what you are saying is that he is more of anti hero character. Less of Superman or Spiderman and more of a Batman or Punisher

Was Trolley Man making it worse?He’s the hero that Australia deserves, but not everybody thinks the homeless legend who faced off with a knife-wielding jihadi was doing the right thing. Once the police are on the scene, let the police do their job. Trolleyman is lucky he was not stabbed by the terrorist or accidentality shot by the police. Get out of the way and let the police do their job. When I first saw it I cringed when he fell over. Only that the terrorist was moving away from him and had his view obstructed, he could have been stabbed as well. Not to mention that he could have been shot by the cops. Use the money wisely with a guardian. Too much too fast can be deadly to someone struggling with drug probs. -E
