Beheading on bus in Canada

Scroll down for update;

It's time to play "name that religion"!

Debbie Schlussel has posted a report on a beheading in Canada. The beheading of a passenger by his seatmate as fellow passengers fled. Debbie nails it!

Reuters is reporting; WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - A man sleeping on a Greyhound bus as it rolled across the Canadian Prairies was killed and decapitated by his seatmate as horrified passengers fled to safety in the night, witnesses and police said 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 on the bus. Caton said that when the attack was over, the knife-wielding killer displayed his victim's severed head to the onlookers.

A 40-year-old man was taken into custody at the scene on Wednesday evening on a desolate stretch of the TransCanada Highway about 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, but has not been charged, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Police declined to speculate on what prompted the attack, and witnesses said the victim and killer, who apparently did not know each other, had enjoyed a casual cigarette break with other passengers only minutes before the attack.

Witnesses described a scene of bloody mayhem that erupted without warning on the bus, which was traveling east to Winnipeg, Manitoba, on a routine scheduled run.

"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 told CBC Television.

The attack continued as other passengers fled the bus and waited for police, Caton said. He said he, the driver and another passenger desperately tried to hold the bus door closed 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."

Police praised the calmness and cooperation of the passengers, who were taken to a hotel in Brandon, Manitoba, and were being given crisis counseling and other assistance by authorities and Greyhound.

"Believe me, if we could do our jobs without having you relive this terrible experience we would," RCMP staff Sargent Steve Colwell said in a statement to the passengers that was read to reporters in Winnipeg.

Passengers said they were having difficulty coping.

"I tried to get to lay down at 4 o'clock this morning but was up 10 minutes later because every time I closed my eyes I'd see this man in the window with some guy's head I had just smoked a cigarette with," Cody Omstead told CTV News.

Greyhound said in a statement that it was cooperating with police to determine what happened. It said that intercity bus travel remained the safest mode of transportation in the country.

Could it be that the Canadian cannibal, Vince Weiguang Li, may be a Chinese muslim, an uighur?

My immediate reaction is to blame "Big Tobacco."

Nicotine is the Devil's blade, after all.

But since "beheading" was the crime, maybe Canada should consider that they have brought such violence upon themselves as they continue to placate the evil in their midst.

Let's not forget, your humble blogger is (embarrassed to be) a smoker.

It appears Vince Weiguang Li may be a chinese muslim, an uighur.

(wḗgŏŏr)...Looked it up and still don't know how to pronounce it.

I hate to see people mistreated, but I imagine that China, like Sadam Hussein, knows how to keep the lid on the pot... Or deport their problems to Canada, perhaps.

I hear ya Chris. It seems the only thing they understand is force.

How ghastly. Can you even imagine??? Next, watch the dhimmidiot lefties line up to look for 'root causes' and roll out the old - 'he's depraved, because he's deprived' routine.

And how about about the government's lame response?

"It said that intercity bus travel remained the safest mode of transportation in the country"

I'd just add..."unless you're sitting next to a Muslim, that is."

But the Canadian government will never bring themselves to say that...

(It's time to play "Name that Religion" - hah-hah. "Blame big tobacco." LOL. Good ones,guys.)

I was impressed with the other articles that said this story is making Canadians look like wussies: "Something bad is happening! We're Canadian. Run!!!"

As opposed to the impression of Americans: "Something bad is happening! We're American. Beat the crap out of him!!!"

And the Democrats say we've lost our stature in the eyes of the world. Snort!

And you know this guy well enough to know that he is??

Debbie Schussel is a zionist propagandist, clearly not a balanced reporter!

Julia Riber Pitt said...

And by the way, this happened in Canada (where I was last week), so technically US politicians can't do anything about it.

janice said...

Thanks for weighing in Julia. First, I asked a question regarding his "faith", you know the "faith" that beheads unbelievers. I did not make that statement into fact.

However, I have to disagree with you. Do you know or have you ever met Debbie? I didn't think so. Don't come here to my blog and call names, especially Debbie Schlussel, do it somewhere else, OK.

For you to opine here you must have at least some understanding of the facts. Which you clearly do not.

Again, thanks for stopping. I doubt you'll be back. You seem to be akin to the cowards on that bus in Canada. Flight 93, fought back. That's America!

Malott said...

"Flight 93, fought back. That's America!"

Nicely said, Janice!

Dinah Lord said...

Oh boy, Miss J.

The guy has just been charged with ...wait for it - 2nd degree murder!!!!

If taking a big ass knife on a bus, befriending a fellow passenger and then repeatedly stabbing, decapitating and slicing off body parts to dine on, while putting some in your pocket for later only gets you the 2nd degree, WTF do you have to do to get murder one?

(Julia - I'll give you this - this is plain ass crazy - even for a Muslim! Ha-ha.)
