And if we had concealed carry laws and people could own firearms and train with them and be educated on the laws behind firearms many of these issues wouldn’t be a problem

And if they got the guns from people it would end up with someone being hurt. Or killed

I hear a lot about indecent assault, but is there such a thing as a decent assault? Anyway I'm glad he's caught. Fancy doing that near her family.

Bloody dog....

That so unfair he was just trying to do his job

That is so horrible. That poor man sleeping on the street. Housing affordability and availability in Sydney is at disgustingly low levels. I feel horrible for the driver too. But what was he doing driving onto the footpath?

I'll just sleep in the middle of the highway then and when I get hit I'll blame everyone else.

Brenton jesus

Y he take Sydney eye hospital

Just because a guy is sleeping on a footpath does not mean he can lawfully be run over by someone "just doing their job" Police likely would not brought charges if it was a simple unavoidable accident. Looks like the driver was possibly reckless?

Sounds like he did it on purpose, he had no reason for driving on a footpath, very sad 😢 poor homeless guy didn’t have a chance!!

I am occasioning laughter on this one. That's what happens when the old three tier government systems gets privatised. Notice how the police part of it all still works ok. Less State Gov Replenish Federal & Local govs

Think this says more about the city's homelessness problems than a debate by people who weren't there at the time to say if it was reckless or not.

If every rich person in aus bought a block of units to house the homeless there wouldnt be any homeless and this poor man would still be alive, rest in peace you're in a much better place now

What a sad story for everyone involved

How about think of the victims and forget the political crap for the this story

I feel sorry for the driver here! It would have been hard to notice or see the homeless person! There are so many others that contributed to this accident in some small way! There are some saying that the homeless should have some housing, well there is! If you talk to some of these people they choose to live on the street as it’s safer than living in the shelters!
