Abstract


  • This comment explores the range of responses to Thomas Kelly’s death. Mr Kelly suffered fatal

    head injuries after being king-hit in the face when walking down the street in Kings Cross,

    Sydney, in July 2012. It is argued that these responses form a populist and far more nuanced

    response than the more typical ‘law and order’ reactions of state governments witnessed in the

    past, making us think about taking populism more seriously.
