Canadian Greyhound bus murder revisited

The man is unfit for society.

I'm also glad to see the blood-lust is strong among the Canadian people...

Will this result in TSA and backscatter scanners at Greyhound bus stops? Whenever I have ridden a Greyhound bus I have not felt unsafe, but I am in Australia and we do not have so many problems except drive by shootings in Sydney.

This is giving them more justification for greater security at bus stops. This is to keep you safe citizen.

Pages of comments and not one with anything intelligent to say. I don't think I've ever quite seen that. Even YouTube comments always seem to have at least one constructive post.

A lot of it was downright scary and so ironic, it was just mind blowing.

I remember taking the bus to British Columbia to see my girlfriend at the time after the event happened, not a fuck was given but I haven't seen people that paranoid since 9/11.

Dare I say, maybe even MORE paranoid.. I was suprised Alex Jones didn't take a trip down and investigated a case for mind control.

I'm not sure how it's like now but before you couldn't take one trip without one shmuck commenting on it and the listener bracing himself for violent fury.

At least with 9/11 you had a chance of guerrilla warfare; this incident was just some crazy guy that went off his gourd. It's sad it happened, but seriously, when was the last time you heard of this incident in Canada?

People of the first world are way to paranoid and insecure.

See, before this happened, my friends always came back from Greyhound trips with stories about the biggest creeps ever riding those buses. When this news broke out, I wasn't the least bit surprised.

I'm sure we've all been tempted to snap like that when on a very long bus trip. I'm shocked it doesn't happen more regularly throughout that vast chunk of land.

No, I cannot say I've ever been tempted to carve someone's head off with a knife and then start eating them.

Neither do I. Incidentally, my most disgusting fantasies revolve around murdering released psychopaths vigilante-style. Especially rapists. Chop chop chop.

I was on a Greyhound once where a passenger tried to attack the driver at 3:00 AM, claiming the driver was falling asleep. Fortunately other passengers were able to stop him and he was escorted off by police.

In my opinion, riding the Greyhound is something of a risky venture. There's virtually no security and the stations are always cesspools. I've thought many times about how easy it'd be to bomb a bus or something, quite honestly. I think the problem is, though, that it doesn't have the same high profile as the airlines. No one wants to put money into Greyhound security, especially with its reputation in terms of the people who use it.

That said, I find the Greyhound to be an interesting argument in terms of security. A terrorist could do just as much damage blowing up a bus as blowing up a plane, but we haven't seen buses get blown up, despite how easy it'd be. What that says to me is that our terrorist fears are greatly overblown.

This reminds me of the movie Traitor.
