The records show that a total of 32 people were shot in the Broad Arrow Cafe, so at best we would expect 4 dead and 28 injured, or at worst 6 dead and 26 injured. These are very reliable military figures based on hard science, but the actual figures in the Broad Arrow Cafe were 20 dead and 12 injured an incredible inverted ratio of 1.66 to 1. Special forces train continuously for months on end to achieve a ratio as high as this, which lies far beyond the abilities of regular soldiers, and is an absolute scientific impossibility for an intellectually impaired registered invalid.

Those desperately trying to protect the "lone nut" Iegend will scream foul at this point and claim that flukes happen. No they do not. About seven months ago trained Israeli soldier went berserk in Hebron and fired a complete thirty-shot magazine of ammunition from an identical Col AR15 into a crowd of Palestinians at the same range His thirty high velocity bullet injured nine and killed no-one at all This Israeli example helps to drive home the absolute lunacy of insinuations that Bryant, registered invalid, suddenly metamorphasized into the lethal equivalent of a fully trained an highly disciplined US Navy SEAL.

Next we come to the kill-rate which refers to the speed at which people are killed, thereby reflecting the skill, co-ordination, and accuracy of the shooter. It is accepted by all the authorities in Tasmania that immediately after the shooter entered the Broad Arrow Cafe he killed his first 12 victims in 15 seconds.

The first thing special forces do when entering an enclosed area containing superior numbers is lay down very fast accurate fire designed to kill as many hostiles l as possible, thus gaining absolute control of the area in record time and minimising the risk of injury to themselves. Because hostiles frequently wear body armour protecting the heart area, special forces are trained to aim instinctively for the smaller heart target. Following these unpublished protocols precisely, the shooter at Port Arthur gained absolute control of the Broad Arrow Cafe in fifteen seconds flat killing most of his victims with single a shot to the head. To even suggest that Martin Bryant (whose proven weapons handling experience was limited to a single shot Webley Osprey air rifle) could have caused this carnage is absurd.


When the shooter entered the Broad Arrow Cafe and fired the first shot, everyone inside reacted instinctively to the huge muzzle blast, but each reacted in a different way. Some just turned their heads while others moved physically, temporarily obscuring yet more diners and shielding them from the line of fire. In a millisecond the cafe was full of targets moving in at least ten different directions while the muzzle of the AR15 was still recoiling upwards from the first shot.

Despite the enormous difficulties and the complex target trigonometry involved, the shooter controlled the recoil, shooting 12 moving and partially obscured targets at the rate of one every 1.25 seconds. He did not trip over any obstructions, indicating that he must have been in the cafe some time earlier, during his final reconnaissance when he studied the layout to ensure no hiccups occurred during the operation. Ninety seconds after entering the Broad Arrow Cafe the shooter departed, leaving thirty two people lying on the floor, twenty of them dead.

All of these hard scientific facts were deliberately excluded by the frenzied media pack. Long blonde hair did not prove that the shooter was Martin Bryant, and the media somehow forgot to remind the Australian pubic that long wigs are the most common form of basic disguise ever used. In the Broad Arrow a long wig would also have been necessary to conceal the ear protection worn by the shooter. Firing more than thirty high velocity AR15 rounds in that hollow confined space produced as much concussive blast as a pair of stun grenades; sufficient concussion to severely impair the shooter's spatial orientation (and thus aim) unless wearing ear protectors or combat communications headphones.

Official accounts are hazy about what happened next, but it is confirmed that most of those killed thereafter were shot with the Belgian FN, a heavier assault weapon which has a completely different weight and balance from the Colt ARI5 and fires a round producing more than twice the recoil. But despite switching between weapons with very different handling characteristics, and shifting from close to intermediate range, the shooter constantly maintained an awesome inverted killed-to-injured ratio.

Overall the massacre produced 35 dead and 22 injured for a final killed-to-injured ratio of 1.60 to 1, almost identical to the 1.66 to 1 ratio in the Broad Arrow Cafe. To say the shooter was consistent would be the understatement of the year. In layman terms, the shooting of 35 people who were killed at Port Arthur should have been accompanied by between 175 and 245 injured survivors; very similar ratios to the American McDonalds and other random massacres. Instead there were only 22, the trademark of a highly trained combat shooter.

The professional shooter in Tasmania presented us with a final display of his unquestioned prowess when tourist Linda White and her boyfriend Mick approached Seascape Cottage on the Port Arthur road (in a small four-wheel drive vehicle) shortly after the massacre in the Broad Arrow Cafe. Both saw the shooter aim and Linda White felt the wind of the first round as it passed her cheek and shattered the driver's window next to her head. The shooter corrected his aim and the second round hit Linda White in the arm, just to the right of the heart target area. The third round killed the engine and stopped the vehicle.

In this, his ultimate demonstration of combat skill, the shooter fired one sighting shot at a fast-moving target of unknown speed from an unsupported freestanding firing positron (the most difficult posltlon of all). He instantly and accurately compensated for vehicle speed and weapon recoil with the same blinding speed as the computer gunsight on an F14 Tomcat, then disabled both driver and vehicle with shots two and three. This man might have been an indispensable asset stopping speeding car-bombers in Beirut, but his professional skills were far too conspicuous for Port Arthur
