The Railway Killers and the Hoddle Street Massacre...
British serial killers John Duffy and David Mulcahy became friends on the first day of high school. They had a lot of interests in common like karate, the music of Michael Jackson and raping young women near deserted train stations. This brutal rapey game of theirs escalated and they started murdering their prey. Duffy was caught and sentenced but he didn't roll over on his school chum for over a decade, leaving Mulcahy free to do god knows what in that time.
On the 9th of August 1987, disgruntled ex-Army guy Julian Knight went on a shooting spree in Hoddle Street, Melbourne. He killed 7 people and wounded 19 others all because he was angry that his car had problems and some barmaid didn't like him. This episode has some chilling clips where Knight talks about his crimes and how disconnected he was from reality while shooting everyone up. This guy is so dangerous that the Victorian government drafted new legislation to keep him off the streets.
