    Now that we know the background of the arrested alleged killer governments must act to remove dangerous vagrants living rough from our parks and gardens. Why should young women live in fear when travelling home at night, or even in daylight.

    Great work Victoria Police.

    Some citizens of Melbourne have organised a silent gathering on the steps of the Parliament of Victoria, Spring St CBD, tonight (18 Jan 19) at 1800 hrs (6 pm).

    There will be no speeches or ceremonies, religious or otherwise, the women organisers have stated. Attendees are asked to wear black.
