Abstract

The Port Arthur massacre has raised the expected queries of what manner of person would go berserk in this fashion and how far the crimes could have been anticipated. Without wishing to pre-empt later legal findings the report thus far is that the killer is a young man believed to have had a history of mental illness. How is it possible that such an apparently disturbed young man has escaped scrutiny for so long?
