Man Beheaded on Greyhound Bus By Seatmate
— Ace

Buses! Mobile crackhouses on wheels! Except crackhouses smell less strongly of urine and desperation.

(Actually, I don't mind buses, but this really doesn't help their bad reputation.)

A man sleeping on a Greyhound bus as it rolled across the Canadian Prairies was killed and decapitated by his seatmate on Wednesday night, other passengers who were on the bus told media on Thursday.

"All of a sudden, we all heard this scream, this bloodcurdling scream," said Garnet Caton, who was sitting just in front of the victim, in an interview with CBC Television.

"The attacker was standing up right over top of the guy with a large hunting knife -- a survival, Rambo knife -- holding the guy and continually stabbing him, stabbing him, stabbing him in the chest area," Caton said.

The attack continued as other passengers fled the bus and waited for police on a desolated stretch of the TransCanada Highway near Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, said Caton, who helped bar the bus door to prevent the attacker from leaving.

"He calmly walks up to the front (of the bus) with the head in his hand and the knife and just calmly stares at us and drops the head right in front of us," Caton said.

"There was no rage in him ... It was just like he was a robot or something."

Actually he was programmed to kill by Republican subliminal advertising.

Thanks to Conservative Belle and KevinD.

It's Canada. 30 days in a psych unit and they will declare him sane, safe, and release him with a bus ticket to get home.

2 You know who rides buses? Upscale hobos. This may just be a case of bad technique.

Seriously though, wtf is with people who just stand there or run away when someone is getting murdered? It seems to be happening a lot lately (or just reported more). I've never been in that situation but I'd like to think I'd try to help.

It happens alot in Canada.  Not so much in USA churches.

Without a description of the guy I thought it was a muslim.  It turns out it was just a regular nutjob.

6 There was no excuse for the people who stood by as the California guy stomped his child to death, but a survival knife? You can't expect people to intervene there - the chances of disarming this individual are slim for anyone not trained in hand-to-hand combat.

8 When I fly I''m going to drink even more just in case someone drops a head in the aisle next to me. I would love to see a picture of the guy, just to get a baseline.

Gah, somebody must have uttered the trigger word.  The program wasn't supposed to be executed until he got to Celine Dion's house.

I'll pass the note along to Dark Lord Rove when I get the chance.

14 I'm afraid to see what this guy looks like.  I'm picturing a big lumberjack with a potato sack on his head and 20-inch forearms.

Tell the truth now though-which one of us hasn't been driven to murderous rage by the monotony of the Canadian praries? 

Huh, guys? 

Can I get an Amen?

16 At first I thought maybe R.o.P., but looks like a regular nutjob.  The victim was apparently native, so maybe race was a factor, but seems more like an opportunity freak-out.

Anyone with a knife is very dangerous. I remember years ago we practiced defense against knives in my karate class, and it was very difficult. Pretty much you have to accept that you are going to cut, and just try and disable your opponent before you're fatally injured.

The heads on the bus go rolling out, rolling out , rolling out, the heads on the bus go rolling out, all day long…

The psycho on the bus goes chop chop chop, chop chop chop….

Is this one of those "name the party" posts?

Did he throw it under the bus?

20 "Buses! Mobile crackhouses on wheels! Except crackhouses smell less strongly of urine and desperation."

Actually, most buses do too.

Well, he was stabbing someone else. So you've got an opportunity there, maybe with his back to you while he stabs the other dude.

Not to disarm him of the knife, fuck that - smack him in the head with something heavy.

Something heavy might not be readily available on a bus...  but maybe someone's briefcase or something. Or your own knife. 

But... you probably wouldn't even save the guy he was stabbing, and then you'd get in trouble for killing the stabber.

And leave the driving to us...Goes to show that bus drivers should be trained and carry fire arms these days--captain of the ship and all.

Jesus, this has to be the first time on Greyhound!! I can hardly believe it!

That nightmare leaves Italy's pest problem squat. But with the decapitation, and with the ticks and fleas on Italian transport, one has to wonder exactly WHO is causing all the trouble. Are Muslim immigrants involved?

"In recent years, there have been several cases of infections from ticks or fleas on Italian transport, particularly on trains."

from Tropical Medical Bureau regarding a 1st class ferry cabin infestation.

24 So where in the story is he ID`d as a regular nutjob as opposed to an ROP Nutjob?  Didn`t see the perps name anywhere.

So much for mass transit.  I'd rather drive and arrive broke, with my head attached, than save a few bucks on Greyhound.

Seriously, what's with mass transit?  I've seen a passenger kicked off Amtrak several hours outside NY because her sister bought a ticket so the names didn't match her ID.  (ID?  Anybody heard of train hijackings lately?)   Anyone who has flown has seen the TSA in action. 

Now the TSA wants to fine an airline if  certain people aren't allowed to fly.  Those people's names are on the no fly list that comes from the TSA, but they aren't the people the TSA wants the airlines to keep off the planes.  How the airlines are supposed to distinguish among them is their problem.  Likewise, I suppose getting sued for discrimination is the airlines problem as well.

Just wait until they run healthcare.

I have heard differnt reasons here why this happened.....race was the main one , location and so on . But the only reason that this happened was from Pure Evil!! I live 30 min from where this happened and I can tell you one thing nothing even close to this has ever happend b4 in a small country area . The world is changing  , more evil in the world and scitsos. No matter where you are , you always have to be careful . You never know from looking at someone  if they are capable of doing something like this or not, never judge the book from the cover.

I fell for the family of tth victim and also the one's that seen this happened. I read there was a small boy there that seen this ( sigh) My heart goes out to all of them .

And the person that said that they should of tried to save him .... Im sure at that point when he was stabbed in the neck , several times, there was nothing to save at that point. They would of been risking thier own lives also .... heck , this started at 10 pm or so and went on till 1 :30 am with rcmp .... just shows how carful you have to be with evil.

34 I haven't seen anything about the attacker's nationality/ethnicity, etc.  Has that been determined yet?  I guarantee you if he had a cowboy hat on the headline would read:  "Asshole Texan Decapitates Hockey Fan."

How the hell do you get to New Jersey from here if they stop you every time you kill soomebody? Jeez, things was easier when ya just shot the mook wit a .38 and stuffed him in the trunk of a car and crushed it.
Mass transportation has made my job so freakin much harder.

Besides, they screw you at the drive thru. I said it, I mean it.

Obviously due to lack of evidence, right?

Why no ID on the suspect, or the victim? I have my suspicions....

1. Muslim (I know, obvious)

2. A "hate crime" that wasn't, because the victim and perp don't fit the media template.

49 I find it appalling that people could just watch or run.  If three or four people stepped up and even started kicking him or hit him over the head anything  this 22 year old might of had a chance.  I know his family is going to have a hard time dealing with the fact that nobody even tried to help.

50 Vince Weiguang Li, 40, 22-year old Tim McLean-neither of these names are Muslim. Stop projecting racism and it will cease to exist, only asses assume. It was not racially motivated, just a nut.

54 This sort of thing doesn't just happen in Canada though. It happens all over the world. The reason people tend to run in situations like this though is because they are scared that something is going to happen to them as well.
