Bus passenger beheaded seat mate, witness says -

Bus passenger beheaded seat mate, witness says -


As of now this story is all over the news - a man on an eastbound Greyhound Canada bus in Manitoba beheaded the sleeping guy next to him, apparently for no reason at all. What is this world coming to? Are people cutting off each other's heads just because they feel like it? What the heck, there's just no rational explanation for this.

As linked above, the news story comes from CNN. Oddly enough, CNN seems to have a (very dark) sense of humor. Check out these lines from their article:

  • "It was like something between a dog howling and a baby crying, I guess you could say" - WTF?! I know this is a quote from an eyewitness, but still - is this America's premier news source, or this is little kids on Halloween?
  • "Colwell praised the "extraordinary" level-headedness and bravery of the bus driver and passengers." All right, let's make it perfectly clear that there's NO GODDAMN WAY that some journalist innocently decided to use that phrase. This isn't a quote from a person on the's something the writer had to have added in. Funny how they mentioned heads in a story about decapitation...'nuff said.
  • "everyone except the knife-wielder and his victim had left the bus" - Who knows, maybe it was a poor choice of words, but I kinda doubt that after the previous two. Maybe it was a bad attempt at some twisted humor...How did the dead guy get off the bus? Haha, he couldn't cause he was dead! Wow - bad, BAD joke.
  • "Once they are released, Greyhound will take them by bus to Winnipeg" - yeah, I guess this is a fact, but if I saw a guy lose his head (literally) on a Greyhound bus, I sure wouldn't want to ride again...I mean, what if someone chopped off my head while I was sleeping? I'd rather look out for myself - and that's only possible if I get to keep my head.

I've always considered CNN to be a humdrum, mainstream news source. Guess I'll have to head over to more often and take a close look.
