It may seem like a strange question but realistically how could WINZ have possibly anticipated and prevented the terrible attack and murder of their staff? We live in a country that does not allow us to arm ourselves in public so when we are in public and a criminal is armed we are helpless to defend ourselves. We live in a country where our Police are not allowed to routinely carry arms so if they are confronted by an armed criminal they are helpless to defend themselves and the public. We live in a country where security guards are not allowed to be armed so if they are held up by armed criminals they are helpless to defend themselves.
Given these facts how possibly could WINZ have (within the law ) taken all practicable steps to prevent the shooting of their staff?
Bullet proof glass? Are we expected now to keep staff isolated totally from their ‘ clients ‘ behind bars or glass?
