‘This is about men’s behaviour’ says Melbourne Police Assistant Commissioner
Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius says Melbourne is a safe city but attitudes against women needed to change.
Mr Cornelius comments come in response to questions from reporters over the death of Courtney Herron in a Melbourne park on the weekend.
A 27-year-old homeless man has since been charged over her brutal murder.
“What is it in our community that allows some men to think that it’s still OK to attack women or take from women what they want?” Mr Cornelius said. “Violence against women is absolutely about men’s behaviour.”
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews agreed that men’s attitudes to women need to change.
