Shooting at Australia's Monash U, two dead eight injured
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - An attacker opened fire at a university in the southern city of Melbourne on Monday, killing two people and wounding eight others, police said.
Police said a person had been arrested in the shootings at Monash University in southeastern Melbourne.
Paramedics were called to the campus just before 11:30 a.m. (0130 GMT), an ambulance spokeswoman said.
The paramedics at the scene confirmed two people were dead, and two badly wounded, the spokeswoman said on usual condition of anonymity.
She said one man who had been shot in the stomach was airlifted to a hospital with serious injuries.
Another person had been shot in the leg, she added.
Police later said two people were dead and eight people were injured.
No further details were immediately available. - AP
This is from Google News.
Taking something that happened on CNN to extrapolate a broad generalization of the entire country is way over-reacting. And perhaps you could give more weight in THIS forum to what the members of the forum are saying (if you bothered to read them, you would notice that most of them are words of sympathy for our Australian cousins) rather than insulting them by comparing them to a "news" organization most of them wouldn't even watch.
That being said, to the other Aussie members of FR, heartfelt sympathy for everyone affected by the murderers in Bali and by this incident as well.
Addressing everyone in the United States as if we were a single person is as "insular" and ignorant as oh, say, thinking there is only one university in Melbourne.
Two people are dead, and there are scant details. Insulting my entire country because the Communist News Network demonstrates its usual level of stupidity serves no cause except to give you some bizarre excuse to vent what is obviously a psychotic disdain for all Americans. If America bugs you so much, then CHANGE YOUR DAMNED HANDLE and leave my country.
So how about getting back on your medication, pulling that stick out of your butt, and stop being such a damned hypcrit, okay, MATE?
If this is how you get your kicks, insulting Americans who would have otherwise sent condolences, then it is you, madam, who needs therapy. May I suggest you find a good one...perhaps in Melbourne...?
Ahh, you caught us, troll. How abusive of you.

Not meaning to be rude, Cicero, but where've you been the past ten years...?
If that's true, you might want to consider suicide.
Acccording to Associated Press Filing Practices, a NewsAlert is a "one-line, non-publishable headline that briefly describes a story about to move as a bulletin or urgent.". The full article comes later.
At the time this thread was started, only the NewsAlert was available, not a full article.
piss off. No society has had greater global influence in the history of mankind. none.
No nation has ever had a greater number or variety of cultures, races and nationalities immigrate and call themselves Americans.
Yes, the average American education is close to Third World standards. But if you think Americans are insular you need only look at our corporate movers and shakers.
To judge all Americans by what you see on CNN is like us judging Australians by watching kangaroo videos.
