Did police ignore the warnings about the Perth shooter?

The country has been rocked by another story of men’s violence against women after a Perth man killed a mother and daughter on Friday. It’s believed the man, a licensed gun owner, was looking for his ex-partner at the time of the incident. In the wake of the incident, the shooter’s daughter has issued a public statement about what she says is a failure by WA Police to adequately address safety concerns she and her mother had about her father. She claims she “raised the alarm” about her father three times, and was ignored by police.

In today’s podcast, we’ll discuss what we know about the incident, the investigation now being launched by WA Police and how the WA government has responded.
