norseman: I've read the manifesto and viewed the footage. He was no "nutter" he knew what he was doing! Not condoning his actions but you can see why the politicians and lefties are trying to shut down any alternate discussion of this tragic event!

Penguin Island is a short distance of the coast at Rockingham, about 50km south of Perth. It's connected to the mainland by a shallow sandbar across which one can wade to visit the island and enjoy the aroma of penguin poop. The 2004 Boxing Day tsunami send a wave past the area; a number of people wading along the sandbar were washed off but were aided to shore by kayakers. By all reports it was a small wave, but carried a surprising amount of force.
It's entirely plausible in my opinion that should a similar event occur in a slightly different way the west coast could be in a world of trouble. So could the rest of Australia's coastline, depending on the epicentre at the time.
Just as someone in an Australian forest must consider bushfires as a risk, those near the coast must realise that water damage is a risk. It's one of the negatives of living on an island.
