Werribee man arrested over alleged Melbourne New Year's Eve terrorism plot
user posted image

A man has been arrested in Melbourne's south-west for allegedly trying to get a gun and "shoot as many people as he could" on New Year's Eve, Victoria Police said.

The 20-year-old Werribee man accused of the terrorism plot was described by police as one of their "high persons of interest".

Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton said they believed the man was trying to get an automatic rifle to "shoot and kill as many people as he could" around Federation Square, in Melbourne's CBD, during New Year's Eve celebrations.

Police said they moved in because the man had been having face-to-face meetings about getting a gun.

The man, who police said was connected to other extremists, did not manage to obtain one, Deputy Commissioner Patton said.

Federation Square is of the most popular spots in Melbourne to bring in the new year.

He is facing charges in relation to preparing to commit a terrorist attack and collecting documents to facilitate that attack.

The man is described as a Muslim, who is an Australian citizen with Somalian parents.

"We were monitoring this person. He has been subject to our active investigation and at no stage did he access a firearm — albeit that was his intention," Deputy Commissioner Patton said.

Just another lone wolf with lots of support, no doubt. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/mad.gif

It's just fake news designed to try to lift Turnbulls approval ratings. http://s7.postimg.org/j7qtvsrc7/sarcasm.gif

Why are the Federal Police holding press conferences regarding ongoing investigations.?
They should shut their mouths and get on with the job.

"Hi there, I'd just to show my appreciation for allowing me to be Australian, and for letting my Somali-born parents come to your wonderful country. I'm going to get a gun, and, on New Year's Eve, I'm going to SHOOT AND KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS I CAN! It's the least I can do....." http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/rolleyes.gif

Well spotted Flin. http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/lbill.gif

The Border Farce guy looked cool in his black shirt, but the Victorian copper looked like he'd rather be somewhere else.

NewsPoll for this week has been delayed/suspended for this week, and will be held this coming weekend.

scepo's "It's just fake news designed to try to lift Turnbulls approval ratings" http://s7.postimg.org/j7qtvsrc7/sarcasm.gif is just a wild guess. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/lbill.gif

Yes, if there are ongoing investigations this should not be broadcast.

The man is described as a Muslim, who is an Australian citizen with Somalian parents.

The Australian born wannabe terrorist has a name, he is Ali Khalif Shire Ali, 20, from Werribee - why is there all this hatred for the country, and its people, who have welcomed their families and been so generous to them? http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

Australia will never be the same....
