In April 2012, on a remote rural property in northern NSW named the School of Happiness, police shot dead Ryan Pringle. Ryan, who was high on a cocktail of drugs and who suffered from mental illness, had been threatening attendees of a hippie festival, known as a rainbow gathering, with a crossbow and hunting knife. When a husband-and-wife police team arrived, they tried to disable him with a taser gun, but ultimately fatal shots were fired.In Wild Man, Alecia Simmonds follows the coronial inquest into this police shooting of Ryan Pringle - the 'Wild Man'. She reveals what really happened that night and unravels the web of issues entangled in the episode: a cultural clash between hippies and rednecks, drug use, mental health and overstretched police services. This spectacular book examines this fascinating, tragic and, at times, bizarre case, and is also a clear-eyed look at some of the most pressing issues in contemporary society.
