Authorities investigate whether police ambush was planned



Authorities investigate whether the Queensland Police ambush was planned, as a community mourns.

Tragedy in Australia with two police officers and an innocent bystander killed, in what has been described as a senseless attack.

Investigations are continuing into how exactly this incident unfolded.

Police were attending a routine missing-person inquiry on a remote Queensland property, three hours west of Brisbane.

Ambushed with heavy gunfire as soon as they set foot on the property, it’s now clear they didn’t stand a chance.

The key questions are whether the officers were lured into a trap and whether this whole ordeal was planned from the very start.

Queensland’s Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll says investigators will focus in on the online presence of the attackers.

They were both shot dead following a mammoth six-hour siege.

Graphic body camera footage will be used to piece together how Constables Matthew Arnold and Rachel McCrow, as well as bystander and neighbour, Alan Dare, died.

Thousands moved by lives taken too soon

The attackers were seemingly well-armed. Additionally, the property itself had a security camera system set up to alert them if anyone entered the boundary.

The Commissioner told the ABC’s 7.30 program police will “get to the bottom” of what happened.

“We’re definitely investigating every avenue. We will investigate what they have been doing not only in recent weeks, but in recent years. Who have they been interacting with, family, friends, their online presence,” the Commissioner said.

“I know that the officer in charge also spoke to them, so they were quite comfortable going out to the property and in fact, from what I understand, quite jovial and having fun with each other. For us, this was a standard job.”

A community and a nation in mourning. Authorities trying to work out exactly what happened and how these two young Constables lost their lives.

Big tech caught in political drama



Nine Google employees were escorted out of company offices in New York and Sunnyvale, California, following a sit-in protest against a cloud contract with Israel’s government.

The protest in Sunnyvale targeted Thomas Kurian’s office, CEO of Google’s cloud division, while in New York, it occupied a common area on the tenth floor.

Videos showed Google security staff and local police involved in the removal. Four workers in New York and five in Sunnyvale were reportedly detained, but details of any charges remain unverified.


The protest aimed to pressure Google to drop a $1.2 billion cloud computing contract known as Project Nimbus, citing concerns about its involvement with the Israel Defense Forces.

The protesters included software engineers and activists from groups opposing tech contracts with Israel. This incident reflects ongoing activism within tech companies regarding political issues, such as Israel’s actions in Gaza.

Antitrust concerns arise for streaming sports venture



U.S. lawmakers Jerry Nadler and Joaquin Castro expressed competition concerns regarding the planned sports streaming joint venture involving Walt Disney, Fox, and Warner Bros Discovery.

They addressed these concerns in a letter to the CEOs of the media companies, questioning the impact on access, competition, and choice in the sports streaming market.

Voicing apprehension about potential consumer price hikes and unfair licensing terms for sports leagues and distributors, they requested responses by April 30, urging the companies to also send their replies to the Department of Justice.

Despite the companies’ announcement in February of launching a joint sports streaming service in the autumn to attract younger viewers, the deal faces DOJ scrutiny and an antitrust lawsuit from FuboTV. While Disney and Warner Bros remained silent on the matter, Fox declined to comment.

The joint venture encompasses a broad range of professional and collegiate sports rights, including NFL, NBA, MLB, FIFA World Cup, and college competitions, offering non-exclusive access to sports networks such as ESPN, Fox Sports 1, and TNT via a new streaming app.
