....

Not really a perspective on what was a tragic and senseless death. Same as happens to so many other families nearly every day of the year.

Sadly, yes. The bully was Cooper Ratten. Must be a nightmare for parents to see their cute little toddlers transform into dangerous teenagers as they grow older.

It often does. The grief and empathy you feel for eg a toddler will be different for a 90 yr old. Or a criminal. Or it's different compared with someone you know (or knew of) to someone you'd never met before.

Not really. Still a tragic waste of a life. Let's not pretend the kid was a saint though.

Random terrorism, killing innocent people all around the world. Is it happening more often? Or do we just get more coverage of it now.

Today is the ten year anniversary of the passing of Gary Dhurrkay who played for Freo and the Roos. He retired at the age of 25 in 2000, tragically died in a car accident five years later. Was a massive loss for the NT indigenous community. RIP bloke
