Title: A lawyer with a chair
Post by Gordon on Aug 15th, 2019 at 5:07pm
Great work!

Lawyer who helped subdue Sydney stabbing suspect with chair breaks silence


Following the stabbing attack in Sydney's CBD that left a woman dead and another injured, attention has turned to the brave civilians who subdued the knife-wielding suspect using a cafe chair and milk crate.

Two days after the rampage, the Sydney lawyer, initially labelled "chair man" after footage emerged of him clutching the chair as he wrangled the alleged attacker, has now broken his silence.

John Bamford, 64, appeared on Sunrise on Thursday morning on the advice of a friend after a day of "people inhabiting my building and hounding me".

He said he had "no option" but to intervene on Tuesday when he saw the knife-wielding assailant and believed he was witnessing a terrorist attack.

Some people find it very hard to run, many find it easy and age has little to do with it. The fight/flight reaction is not evenly distributed in the population.

Yes, a very brave man.

He deserves our thanks.

But why the hell did he go on Sunrise?   ::)

I'm pretty sure everyone would agree a retard kid with a plastic drink bottle already thrown and no longer armed, even if the vigilante had the right retard kid, is not the same as an allahu akbah with a knife in his hand.

Don't start thinking you and this other lawyer have anything in common but your uni degree and practice, or not.

What retard kid? It was no retard and no kid.  What plastic bottle?  It was glass.  You been reading the sewer crap?

Point is, I agree with Peccerry.  Why did that bloke make himself a national headline?

As far as I've seen in schools in the last 20 years they do not sell glass drink containers. There are very few drinks even sold in glass. As you would know I have asked about this since you posted about the damage to your car. You refused to answer openly or via PM.

You mean why did he do what he did? That's what made him a national headline. Or perhaps you mean why did he do it on Sunrise? No idea, his choice, I doubt he was thinking about Sunrise when doing what he did. That you two are trying to diminish his actions/motive by his choice of media says more about you.

Me? I haven't questioned what he did, I applaud him, there are far too many people whose flight response is greater than their fight. I haven't questioned his choice of media. It's just probably weight of odds that one media outlet would get access over others. I doubt he thought it a political statement.

Not that I particularly care what you think, as you'd know, but I'm curious. Why am I beneath contempt for my comments?

There you go yet again.....thinking there is a hand grenade lobbed.  It is obvious...why did the Lawyer allow himself to be commercialised on national TV?  How come you could not work that out?

I still am, always have been. Actions/motive is a choice. You and Aussie are having a go at him for his motive it seems now in speaking to Sunrise. I don't watch it for reasons you are probably well aware and one of the reasons I don't do TV anymore, but it is popular. It's understandable that he would.

I'm still curious as to why I'm beneath contempt. That's a pretty harsh judgement! :-/

Yup, if a special needs kids is ever rampaging through the streets of Sydney with a half full bottle of creaming soda, I'll get Aussie on the hotline.

The Sunrise interview was short, to the point and it's really obvious he wanted to throw the media their bone and move on.

I'm guessing he chose Sunrise as the Today studio is around the corner from his office.  :o

If anyone bothered to watch his interview, he said he was being hounded and perused by media and wanted to tell his story on his own terms.


And any Lawyer worth the name who was not touting would have told them to far cough.


In your opinion, the opinion of a bloke who pins kids to trees.


At least this lawyer pinned something worthwhile but how dare him talk to Sunrise...


Yup, if a special needs kids is ever rampaging through the streets of Sydney with a half full bottle of creaming soda, I'll get Aussie on the hotline.

The Sunrise interview was short, to the point and it's really obvious he wanted to throw the media their bone and move on.

I'm guessing he chose Sunrise as the Today studio is around the corner from his office.  :o


I haven't seen it obviously, I don't do TV, but I wonder if Aussie and Gregg watched it. Do you have a youtube or other link?


I don't watch TV, just watched it online now. BTW his office is 5 mins walk to the Sunrise studio, so he obviously chose it for that reason.

Is Aussie suggesting he is a hero for pinning a kid to a tree?


I had the impression he was just sharing with us as a bit of PTSD therapy.

I mean, a half full bottle of creaming soda hurled by a child would make a barrage of
Katyusha rockets seem like nothing.

The trees on that street are not big, I doubt they'd withstand the force applied by a not small right hand. I Aussie was on the scene, would have he shouted WHICH TERRORIST?

Just watched that, not blowing his own trumpet at all. Pretty much "I'm doing this to get you lot off my back, I did what I thought I should do."  We need more people with a less developed flight response like him.

I had the same thought. My image is of Aussie pinning the kid to a mighty oak tree, one that could have withstood the force of his not small hand.

The best weapon I could see in area was one of those green bikes. Those things weigh about 15KGs.

"Which retard?"


I'm pretty sure everyone would agree a retard kid with a plastic drink bottle already thrown and no longer armed, even if the vigilante had the right retard kid, is not the same as an allahu akbah with a knife in his hand.

Don't start thinking you and this other lawyer have anything in common but your uni degree and practice, or not.


What retard kid? It was no retard and no kid.  What plastic bottle?  It was glass.  You been reading the sewer crap?

Point is, I agree with Peccerry.  Why did that bloke make himself a national headline?


As far as I've seen in schools in the last 20 years they do not sell glass drink containers. There are very few drinks even sold in glass. As you would know I have asked about this since you posted about the damage to your car. You refused to answer openly or via PM.

You mean why did he do what he did? That's what made him a national headline. Or perhaps you mean why did he do it on Sunrise? No idea, his choice, I doubt he was thinking about Sunrise when doing what he did. That you two are trying to diminish his actions/motive by his choice of media says more about you.


Don't pull that poo on me Set.

I said:

"Yes, a very brave man.

"He deserves our thanks."


Your lie says an awful lot about you.

You are beneath contempt.


Me? I haven't questioned what he did, I applaud him, there are far too many people whose flight response is greater than their fight. I haven't questioned his choice of media. It's just probably weight of odds that one media outlet would get access over others. I doubt he thought it a political statement.

Not that I particularly care what you think, as you'd know, but I'm curious. Why am I beneath contempt for my comments?


So do I.

I kinda gave it away when I said:

"Yes, a very brave man.

"He deserves our thanks."


I hope you're acting this stupid, because if you're not, it's a real worry.

As if it makes much difference to what media he spoke to. If you read my responses it was to the fact the particular media he spoke to was the problem, or questionable in your eyes. I'm still curious as to why pointing that out makes me below contempt.


You said I was "trying to diminish his actions/motive".

I wasn't, and that's obvious to anyone reading this thread.

You used to be a decent guy, Set.

I'll back Aussie up here for a change. There was no mention of his hand (not a small thing) near the throat. He put his hand on the boys chest, pushed him against a tree, gave him a gob full then released him.

Not an easy thing to do.
One of the 'Heroes' was ex-Military and even he said he 'hesitated' in some moments, but his 'experience' in Iraq helped him to take action.

Sadly for Sydney. Heroes are a rare breed now. The 'community' Spirit died long ago.
Even the Cronulla Riots of Australians standing up against Moslem violence on their Beaches was suppressed by those in Power who don't like others doing a better job than them (Wouldn't want to get the sack now :-?).
Now Moslems and other grubs are a majority of violence in Sydney.
It's a free-for-all for the evil people. But hey, as long as there is a Mardi-Gras of self indulgence 'love' and vain examples of fashion. Everything will be ok.  ::)

Heroes: 4
Villans: 1544

Nuke Sydney. It's the only way to be sure.  ;)
