Great result. The funeral can't be undone - but should this kind of situation arise again, the "powers that be" will know how the public feels about this and shouldn't make that mistake again!

We need to see the end of the Jedi mindset in the ADF that rewards D.V.

Dismissing this poor young woman as 'collateral damage' regarding this damaged man's behavior is no cop out. He had enough presence of mind to use her phone and credit cards after he had killed her. Of course his poor family is hurting as well but if the Navy had handled this in a different way then both families would not be going through this publicity now. Don't add blame to Kate's family this is not of their making.

This disgusting excuse for a human should never have been afforded the same honour as other hard working, honest members of the defence force. He is a disgrace to our services.

The military organisation has failed ordinary people. Elliot Coulson was a murderer and yet he was given full honours!!! Shame.

Any violence is wrong and why should the criminals be treated with more respect then the victims.

Appalling lack of sensitivity and communication breakdown on Navy's part

Why did this guy get a full military funeral? He didn't die as a result of active service. What about the girl he killed?

People in a normal mindset don't murder a loved one. People in a normal mindset don't leap off balconies.

Thanks for taking away from his family the gratitude shown to them, for his years of service and commitment.
