Thanks for the link. The story may be a little bit different. I still regard it as a "racial attack" or at least a random attack which turned into a racial attack.

I'm particularly disgusted by the woman saying "Rob them, they are Chinese. The are rich", which shows nothing but racial bias.

it happened before the Wolli Creek station, but the train stopped at that station after the attack, and then the victims got off at a later station, it seems

the tweeter makes a point of saying nobody helped

I suspect everyone in that carriage was terrified

not many people know how to tackle six (or seven?) attackers

I've been attacked once this way but managed to get into a cab before the door was kicked

Well the lovely Chinese contributors call us hogs, dogs, jackals, vultures, hyenas and Smithi has a few choice very individual insults too, so now they know that it's not nice to call people names, especially when you yourself are an anti-semitic racist little Nazi.

On the information so far, the primary motive was robbery. Anything from that point was intimidation and rage, I think.

The use of glass in the attack suggests they were openly drinking on the train. They used cigarettes to burn one guy. This suggests to me they were intoxicated, drinking and smoking on a train. Neither activity is allowed on our trains. They did not care for rules. They are clearly antisocial. They are also stupid. Doing this on a train guarantees you will be caught. They are all monitored.

The racist taunts are limited to "dogs and pussies", in a gang setting and they wanted money, presumably for drugs and/or more alcohol or possibly a taxi fare. It is clear enough that robbery was the objective and violence/intimidation the tool to get that money.

If this was a purely racial attack, it would not be this way. That's my view anyway.
