On Tuesday, a 21-year-old with a history of mental health issues stabbed and killed two women, killing one, in the streets of Sydney, Australia. But Mert Ney might have done more damage were it not for a bystander, wielding only a wooden chair, who backed Ney into a corner, where Ney was pinned to the pavement with more chairs and a milk crate until police arrived. “They were significantly brave people,” New South Wales Police Superintendent Gavin Wood told The Sydney Morning Herald. “To approach a person...with clear evidence of a stabbing previously, these people are heroes.”
