Possibly, but I've travelled on these trains frequently and recently. There are no crews. The on ...

Maybe it's the case: ticket inspectors were in fact not on the train. And I also understand why you made the case against calling the incident as a "racial attack."

But I doubt Chinese would care about whether it is racial. A Chinese who is studying in a foreign land was attacked in a train where people just looked on and did nothing -- a woman was actually reported to have shouted "Rob them, they are Chinese" (at least according to the Chinese media).

And all that, believe me, has already brought tons of abuse and resentment against Australians among the Chinese.

I can accept this viewpoint. However, Chinese in China need to understand one critical difference. There is nothing like Sydney or Melbourne in China. If China had a city with truly stupendous immigration, there would be some attacks, like this, with racial comments. Perhaps worse.

The important thing about this attack is that it is well publicised.

You need to also know that most of our taxis are driven by Chinese in Sydney. If there are attacks on them, they are not publicised, unlike the attacks on Indian taxi drivers in Melbourne.

There is likely to be an incidence of attacks on taxi drivers in both cities, like any big city. So why only did the Indian cases get reported?

I wonder if it is because in Melbourne, the drivers are students, like this attack on students in Sydney.

I even reviewed the assault and homicide rates and posted them here, when the attacks on Indians happened in Melbourne.

The assault and homicide rate for Indians was *lower* than for others.

I may review statistics for Sydney.

For chinese in China, they will only see the violence against their own and maybe this will blind them to the reality. There is violence everywhere. There is not much you can do about this kind of attack except increase public awareness. It seems to be working in Melbourne.

I do not believe that there is cause for widespread alarm amongst Chinese students. There will of course be incidents of robbery in large cities. I am sometimes surprised that Chinese students are not targeted more by thugs. I am not condoning the attack by any means.
I teach Uni students here and I have often seen them on trains late at night, head phones on, iphone and laptop out, oblivious to the outside world. I'm afraid to say that to a dishonest thug they would appear like lambs tied to a post in front of hungry wolves.
Self preservation and common sense should be in the minds of the students. When I am in Beijing I would not flash a wad of money and then put it in my back pocket if I didn't want to be pick pocketed.
Luckily the perps have been apprehended by the authorities and the law will be followed appropriately. There will be no bribes to police to get them off the leash and the government will probably scramble to make a public amendment for the incident.
