    saddened, but not surprised

    I'm guessing the man under arrest would be known to state mental health, but finds himself in a situation where he can no longer afford to buy his smokes. Well done NSW government... Well done... bloody idiots.


    Man allegedly stabbed in chest in Bankstown cafe after being asked for a cigarette

    To be fair , refusing a guy a ciggie isnt really justifiable for stabbing him
    ( and if you watch the video the guy clearly says " My family has stabbed me .... over effing drugs man "... I presume talking over a previous incident ? or mental illness? )

    straw...... grasp (re ciggies to blame )

    Must be careful not to confuse a blokes really poor sense of social interaction ( stabbing) with an assumed causal effect ( ciggies too expensive )

    .... I shall now depart and stab someone because my council rates went up again ....and I am addicted to living in my house

    I couldn't watch the movie, vagaries of the internet. If he was known to victim, the report doesn't mention that (and I'm not surprised at that either).

    Knives, its like remembering to take your house keys, out west...

    The two were known to each other i might point out, so its nothing but the usual "got a durry, yah c%^&?" tiff between two blokes from lower socio economic backgrounds, or the pair of them are fricking junkies..

    This will explain all

    I dunno - have seen and heard of and actually experienced just as bad from people looking for ciggies - I wish sometimes more stories like this would make the press - but they simply dont for a number of reasons- including gag orders

    The anti smoking stance of the govt is toxic and has no back up plan - no harm reduction - no psych funding or welfare reform - nothing really- and hurts the ones that are already hurt enough

    Recently I have read a couple of stories like this
    Shop owners fuming as tobacco-related robberies increase: 'I will kill them' - NZ Herald

    where those that stock cigarettes are likely to be robbed and no wonder really - but bet ANTZ has no policy on these things - they are just happy to put people at risk for the greater good yada yada

    Still no real mention of the large increase of never smokers getting lung cancers .. its all tobaccos fault .. etc etc etc
    ďBut I donít want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you canít help that," said the Cat: "weíre all mad here. Iím mad. Youíre mad."
    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldnít have come here.Ē
