Horror

I just can't get over this story, about a young man - who was just sleeping on the Greyhound bus last night - being stabbed dozens of times by a a stranger, and then decapitated. I just can't. I don't mean to sensationalize, it's just that I can't really do anything, now that I've read some details of this, but think about it. Maybe it's because I take the bus regularly. I can't imagine being a passenger on that bus. Oh, the horror.

TD and I *just* saw this on CNN and were absolutely shocked as well - I think the man must have been a paranoid schizophrenic or something. That's the only way to explain such unwarranted violence. I hope.

The whole thing is totally disturbing. Even his response to the police. Definitely something wrong with the guy.

What I'd like to know is if he even knew the guy.

I feel like the RCMP needs to comment more on this now that the information is out in the open.

Oh my God. That's--horrifying. God.

I can't even think of anything to add. I feel sick.

I KNOW! I KNOW!! It's so disturbing! I read about it this morning and I couldn't believe it was a real story. I am just shocked and horrified for both the victim and the passengers...

That's the most disturbing think I've read in a long time. It reads like a scene straight out of a Dean Koontz novel.

I know, I was absolutely horrified by this story. I just kept thinking, "This kind of thing does not happen in Canada!". MW's suggestion of paranoid schizophrenia is the first thing I've heard that could make sense of it. It just doesn't make sense how or why someone could do that.
