Deja Vu... all over again

-- WHITE RIVER, ONT. -- A young man was stabbed Sunday as he slept aboard a Greyhound bus travelling through Northern Ontario, a second stabbing incident in as many months.

The victim, believed to be in his 20s, was stabbed by another young passenger near the town of White River, about 300 kilometres north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., an unnamed passenger told The Canadian Press.

"Yes, if only there was some blindingly obvious step we could all take when we see somebody being stabbed."

LAST WORD: In Dalton McSlippery's Ontario...

...there's no such thing as a bad boy...
A man who killed his wife and two children with a meat cleaver, believing them to be evil, has been declared not guilty of murder by reason of mental illness.

Huc Minh Chau, with black hair unkempt, bowed his head and trembled in the prisoner's box as a judge pronounced him "not criminally responsible" for their near decapitations.

Clearly, a total knife ban is needed. Only a knife ban making knives illegal would have prevented this trajedy, nothing else.

"ontarian says... Clearly, a total knife ban is needed."

that's a little extreme, don't you think? clearly, the preferred solution is to ban bus travel in canada.

the greyhound bus... like nasty, inanimate guns... must go.

It's being reported on the news here that the man with the knife was actually put on the bus by the police.

"reid says... was actually put on the bus by the police."

in this oh-so, politically correct world, the cops hands are tied... their best solution is just to sweep this type of thing under someone else's rug.

if you are schizophrenic... you need an appointed guardian... who is responsible for you taking your meds each and every day... and, more importantly, alerting authorities when the train goes off the track.

if you're this crazy dangerous, walking around with a weapon... you shouldn't be out in the field of folk... period.

I think banning bus travel and knives is the answer.

Butter knives should have red handles th alert police that they aren't dangerous and thus they can still be allowed.

As an aside this Chris Reid guy who was apparently running in Toronto and made it into the media for stating that carry and conceal would help Canadians defend themselves. Well the media states that thought is "embarrasing". What's so embarassing about carry and conceal? It occurs in many States and hasn't caused any increase in gun crime.

"langmann says... this Chris Reid guy..."

as someone who once possessed a concealed-carry permit... (yes, of course in the evil usa)... i am fairly sympathetic on that one.

i am much more disturbed by the liberal candidate being allowed to compare the prime minister to hitler... which the msm is, of course, chooses to ignore.

I howled with laughter over the comment we need "A bus registry" to funny.

I suspect the freaks on the left will demand we all travel on buses naked, like that NDP fella who wanted his body painted by kids.
