Is it just me or is the reply feature of the site broken?
Anyway, I'm not able to reply to http://www.sydneycyclist.com/forum/topics/cyclist-steals-gun
so I'm adding my reply here (for I think there are some interesting points)...
Interesting that the link on The Age site is dead. Here's another: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6732685/Robber-walks-gun-s...
What is more interesting (I think) is that the word "cyclist" doesn't actually appear anywhere in the dailymail link. In fact, the only reference to any "vehicle" is:
He was last seen riding his bike towards the Frankston railway station
So why is it that The Age needed to categorise the man as "a cyclist" while on other (international sites) the fact that he used a bike is nothing more than a footnote to the real article?
