Case Ref : 19960429, Port Arthur Murders

Official Narrative

The Port Arthur massacre of 28–29 April 1996 was a mass shooting in which 35 people were killed and 23 others were wounded in Port Arthur, Tasmania. The murderer, Martin Bryant, pleaded guilty and was given 35 life sentences without the possibility of parole. Fundamental changes of gun control laws within Australia followed the incident. The case is the worst massacre in modern Australia committed by a single person.

I'm convinced that the Port Arthur murders in 1996 [followed by gun control measures being enacted] were not entirely [if at all] enacted by the man convicted of doing them. He wandered about over a lengthy period of time shooting at people, including shooting into vehicles. Two of the people best able to identify him were among his victims. I think he was meant to die in the guest house fire which it is 'assumed' that he set. Of course he was a mentally-impaired fellow, friendless and isolated from his community. He pleaded guilty so there was 'no need for any evidence to be presented'.

Hi Richard, I have some info on the port Arthur massacre here in Tasmania, it’s in relation to the police video of the “crime” scene being leaked on Youtube, I watched the video 3 times, wished I had copied it, the first thing that was glaringly obvious was that one man could not have done this, and certainly not Martin Bryant, instead absolute chaos as seen in the America’s MacDonalds, there was none no one under tables cups of tea not spilt, no sign of panic at all, and the majority had neat holes in their foreheads, the staff were lined up on the floor like they were waiting to be shot...the only sign of panic was on the coach where people had tried to hide under seats, but that didn’t look real either as they were just crouched down in front of seat not under them...the mother and children’s bodies were all face down but the blood trail showed head wounds...the others 2 or 3 on the roadway also were shot in the forehead, ( those in particular should have been shot in back as apparently they had just witnessed the mother and children being shot. The site also had a 5 kilometre no go zone, land air and water, and I believe they have sealed the files in the case. I still would like to pass on this information, as it was the catalyst to gun control here in Australia. Port Arthur is a reasonably isolated location and so it would be impossible for press to arrive in time to record perhaps an alternative story...also noted as in several uk murders the perpetrator always seem to kill close family members. That’s my story hope it is of some use to you. Thank you for Richplanet.

If you have already researched the Port Arthur shooting of 1996 in Tasmania, then my apologies. If you haven't then you will find it quite disturbing as an innocent man of low iq is rotting away in prison, after no trial for a special forces grade shooting.

I believe it was a govt psyop to disarm the aussies much like the Christchurch shooting.

There are so many flaws and coincidences it is unbelievable.

Wendy scurr (rip), who was a witness and never called to give evidence tried in vain to get the truth aired and there are some good videos on YouTube of her account.

I truly believe this was an evil govt operation which has been covered up much like many others like 9/11, jfk. Jo Cox etc.

For a rundown you could go to Richie Allen show/ Keith Noble, who has written a book on the massacre.
