Reported "Siege" Just Down From Here

In sleepy old Perth, where the shops close at 6:00 pm every day, it seems someone has decided to liven things up for us a bit. has said that the Perth Stock Exchange Building is under siege by a guy with a gun. For the benefit of the US audience – guns in Perth are pretty much only seen IN gun clubs and on rifle ranges. It would be like a tank rolling through the streets of New York – it just doesn’t happen.

Unfortunately, my window doesn’t face the building, but there are a couple of helicopters hovering just outside my window (my phone camera doesn’t take good closeups, but if they turn out ok, I’ll post them here) and the police have blocked off part of one of our main streets.

Ok, enough excitement, back to work 🙂

  1. Yeah, I heard he was on the roof, figured that I could jump on one of the helicopters and start hurling rocks at the dudes head, knock him straight off the building, kick his body under a bush that’d sort him out, and everthing could go back to ‘business as usual’! They should have me on their Tactical Assessment Unit!
