This morning, the families of Ms Dawson and Mr Johnson attended the court hear Mr Barnes' findings into the 2014 terrorist incident that took their loved ones away.
NSW Coroner Michael Barnes admitted that while police can make mistakes on the job, they cannot be blamed for the deaths of Ms Dawson and Mr Johnson.
In fact the Coroner remarked that the fault of the Lindt Siege falls solely on gunman Man Haron Monis.
"I cannot stress too heavily that the deaths and injuries that occurred as a result of the siege, were not the fault of the police."
"All of the blame for those rest on Monis. He created the intensely dangerous situation.”
The coroner went on to describe the full extent of the horrifying situation. "He created the intensely dangerous situation, he maliciously executed Tori Johnson, he barricaded himself into a corner of the cafe and his actions or police to enter the cafe in circumstances where the risk of hostages being wounded or killed was very high."
