How much you want to bet?

This is a horrible story, just breaking in the news. Murder and beheading on a Greyhound bus in western-central Canada.



Man beheaded on bus in Canada




UPDATE:

I guessed wrong. So, are we seeing beheading as a trend now, or is this just the work of some random madman?

TORONTO — Police on Friday identified the man who witnesses say stabbed and beheaded a passenger aboard a Greyhound bus traveling across the Canadian Prairies.

Sgt. Brian Edmonds said that 40-year-old Vince Weiguang Li, of Edmonton, Alberta, has been charged with second degree murder. Li is due to appear in court Friday.

The Canadian Press reported that the victim’s friends identified him as Tim McLean, a 22-year-old carnival worker. Authorities have not released his name and Edmonds would not confirm his identity. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

Uh, how on earth is this only second degree murder? The whacko got on the bus with a giant knife intending to kill someone. And then he did. He may have chosen the victim at random, but I’d say he had “malice aforethought”. I don’t like all these degrees of criminality. The guy killed someone on purpose, not by accident, and not in self defense. That’s murder. No degree.

Now let’s see if Li was an illegal alien.

PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, Man. — Shocked passengers aboard a Greyhound bus in Manitoba said the attack was incomprehensible.

One moment, the quiet man near the back of the bus was minding his own business.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, hadn’t talked to anyone around him, and seemed to pay no attention to the younger fellow sitting next to him, who was listening to music on headphones.

The next moment, witnesses said, the older man stood up, still quiet, and repeatedly stabbed then beheaded his seat-mate with a large hunting knife.

“We heard this blood-curdling scream and turned around, and the guy was standing up, stabbing this guy repeatedly, like 40 or 50 times,” Garnet Caton said Thursday from a hotel in Brandon, Man., where he and other passengers had been taken to rest.

“There was no rage or anything. He was like a robot, stabbing the guy.”

Caton said the bus stopped and everyone scrambled to get out while the attacker started methodically carving up the victim’s body, not paying attention to anyone else.

Caton and the driver shut the bus door from the outside while they waited for police to arrive.

“We put our bodies up against the door, waiting for him to come out ... and he went back and brought the head to the front and pretty much displayed it ... and dropped it on the ground in front of us,” Caton said.

“All very calmly. He was wearing sunglasses. It was no big deal to him.”

Fellow passenger Cody Olmstead from Kentville, N.S., also recalled the chilling scene.

“The guy came to the front of the door with buddy’s head in his hands, decapitated. He dropped the head and went back and started cutting the body back up,” Olmstead told Brandon radio station CKLQ.
...
One man was taken into custody after Mounties surrounded the vehicle.

PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, Man. - A portion of the Trans-Canada Highway remained closed Thursday morning as police continued to investigate an incident aboard a Greyhound bus.

Yellow tape surrounded the empty bus and RCMP officers remained on the scene, but they were saying little about what occurred on board the vehicle late Wednesday night.

Traffic was being rerouted onto a sideroad.

Several published reports earlier said a stabbing had occurred on the bus, with one unconfirmed report that someone had been decapitated.

The bus was carrying about 37 passengers and the driver to Winnipeg from Edmonton.

Police shut off a section of the east-bound Trans-Canada Highway, about 15 kilometres west of Portage la Prairie, ordering everyone away from the scene and rerouting traffic.

Day decries bus stabbing as one-of-a-kind in Canadian history

LEVIS, Que. — Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day is expressing shock at what he calls a “horrific” bus stabbing that he’s calling one-of-a-kind in Canadian history.  Day was reacting to what witnesses say was a savage knife attack on a Greyhound bus in Manitoba that resulted in a person being killed and later beheaded.  Day, in Levis, Que., for a summer planning session of Conservative MPs, says the full weight of the law must be brought to bear on the perpetrator. But he says such an incident is, thankfully, extremely rare - in fact he’s calling it “probably one-of-a-kind in Canadian history.”

Day says he wouldn’t even entertain the notion of registering knives as dangerous weapons, noting that millions of kitchen knives alone are likely sold each year.

The incident happened late Wednesday west of Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, but a standoff between the attacker and police lasted into early Thursday.

The bus was traveling along the Trans-Canada Highway from Edmonton, Alberta, to Winnipeg, Manitoba, and was about 45 minutes from its destination when the attack occurred, said Greyhound spokeswoman Abby Wambaugh in Dallas, Texas.

Witnesses told Canadian TV that the attacker was wielding a butcher-type knife. They said the trucker who stopped provided wrenches and crowbars to several of the men, who were able to keep the suspect on the bus until police came. After the standoff, police took the man into custody.
...
“There was a blood-curdling scream. I was just reading my book, and all of a sudden I heard it,” said Garnet Caton, who was sitting in front of the two men. “It was like something between a dog howling and a baby crying, I guess you could say. I don’t think it will leave me for a while.”

The names and/or pictures of the victim and the murderer have not been released yet as far as I can tell. But for identity of the murdering, beheading scumbag who did this, up in Canada about 150 miles northwest of Grand Forks North Dakota ... you know what my question is, and you have already reached the same conclusion I have.  Let’s see if we’re wrong for once.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
