    i hope this isn't the spark that ignites the fire.
    After hearing about this perpetrator today/tonight on the ABC news and current affair programmes; he was not a nutter - he was a cold, calculating psychopath. He knew exactly what he was doing.

      That the attorney thinks his deceased client was unbalanced is probably not categorized as a privileged communication.

      As to the professionalism of the dead client's attorney in characterizing his client, perhaps its a mute point at this juncture, but a comment which could serve to lessen the dead guy's culpability would be in the client's best interests.

        I'm not up on my medical terms, but is not psychopath a subspecies of nutter?

          It is a moot point, agreed, but just surprising - and I guess somewhat disappointing.

            I guess the dead nutter's lawyer is probably a pretty good one, a pro; he got bail approved for a psychopath, anyway.

              According to DSM-V "nutter" is not an official psychiatric diagnosis.
              This guy really sounds like he was hard core.
              Lawyer almost seemed to want his ten minutes of fame in interview I saw.

                Sullying further the reputation of lawyers is a difficult task, but the unofficially crazy dead guy's lawyer managed to pull it off.

                  Able to sully a reputation... I'd say that is an endorsement, far as most lawyers go.

                    The hostage taker isn't popular with Sydney's Muslim undertakers.

                    [COLOR=#333333][FONT=Georgia]The 50-year-old was killed by police after two hostages died during a 16-hour-siege at a café earlier this week.
                    His body will be released before Christmas as soon as autopsies are completed but no one has claimed it, the Australian Daily Telegraph reported.
                    Amin Sayed, a funeral director with the Lebanese Muslim Association, told the newspaper neither he nor any other establishments would perform the rites.
                    “We don’t care about him, we don’t know him, chuck him in the bloody s***house,” he said. “Nobody’s going to do his funeral, no Muslim funeral home will accept him. They can throw him in the bloody sea.”

                      I would say that is a fairly big statement on the Muslim community's part. Good on them for making a stance.

                        Cremate him that would be poetic justice for the slag.
