I searched various news sites in Canada and can’t find a description of the killer. It will be quite interesting if this turns out to be a ROP attack ...

I blame "big corporation" here since Greyhound Bus did not explicitly state this was unacceptable behavior in their passenger guide.

The guy went out for a smoke during a bus stop.
I wonder what he was smoking?
Meth perhaps?

Here's a link on the story from the Calgary Herald...

Man beheaded on Manitoba bus

Looks like the perp still hasn't been ID'd, at least publicly.

Complete silence on a description of the perp, therefore, as we all know, he is most certainly an Islamist.

The cops will probably let him go rather than identify him so they can't be accused of being bigots.

I’m sorry for second guessing the other passengers, but from the sounds of it, nobody thought to try to help the poor victim. They just ran screaming..

A little more info on the perp fm AOL Canada:

A 40-year-old man believed to be from outside Manitoba was arrested early Thursday morning and remains in RCMP custody. Charges have not yet been laid, and the suspect has not yet been interviewed, said RCMP spokesman Staff Sgt. Steve Colwell, adding that he could release no further information on the investigation.

RCMP declined to identify either the suspect or the victim.

Hard to believe that no one at least tried to intervene while he was busy killing this man. Sounds like they had plenty of time to do something.

36 people on the bus, and none of them jumped the guy. They all ran off the bus. Disgusting. He was locked on the bus so he could continue his Jack the Ripper impersonation.

Let’s keep on this one. The media will drop it if it turns out the perp was a member of the Cult of Death.

The police may be hesitant to identify the perp. They wouldn't want to be brought up on charges by the Canadian Human Rights Commission (Mark Steyn).

"The police may be hesitant to identify the perp. "

As of 4:15 p.m. today, when the article was published, the perp hadn't even been questioned or charged. He's probably tranquilized in some psych unit. God forbid they should violate his rights.

From another article:

"It looked kind of like a scuffle or an argument, you know, and then somebody's, like, 'Knife! Knife! Run!' so I was running up the alleyway, slapping people telling them to get going, move, get off the bus. I got pushed over, some lady got pushed over, I was just making sure everybody was OK, and we all got off the bus," said Olmstead

...The attacker ran at them, Caton said, and they ran out of the bus, holding the door shut as he tried to slash at the trio...

..."They did an awesome thing, holding him in there, because if not, what would have happened?" said Olmstead.

Oh yeah, real frikkin heroic there. Dudley Doright would be ashamed...

The guy said the passengers were watching the movie “Zorro.” By the way they beat feet, I think it was more like “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” Run away, run away!

I guess that must mean an American Indian or "Eskimo" in Canadian?

details are sketchy, and I’m not watching the video, but what were they to do, pick up the guy’s head and try to put it back on?

I fault people when they cower in the corner and let themselves be killed.

I’m not going to fault people who, when confronted with an armed assailant, and the opportunity to run away from the assailant, they do so.

Sure, a hero would jump in to help out, but then we might have 3 or 4 beheaded people.

I am willing to cut them some slack, I am sure at least some of them wanted to help out, however by the time people realized what was happening, it might have already appeared to be too late. I think I would have at least had the impulse to help him. However, I was not there, and I dont know how I would have reacted in that situation.

Still, it kinda bothers me. I wish I would have read about someone at least considering it.

I am curious now. Was the dead person travelling with the muzzie or were they simply chance seatmates. If chance turns out to be the case then we have to strongly consider that the Islamic War may have entered a new phase in America.

According to a witness interviewd on Canadian news, the “alleged” murderer had just gotten on the bus, they stopped for a smoke break, started off again and the perp
assaulted the sleeping victim shortly thereafter.

Manitoba has a large native population (Metis = half-breeds). It’s likely as one poster noted, the perp smoked crack or whatever and he did this to another injun, well, “just because”.

Don’t think this is fresh fodder for “Little Mosque on the Prairie” — move along folks.

Don’t fault the others on the bus, the victim was probably beyond saving from the first few blows. Be thankful the driver and others got the bus evacuated.

And lets sent up a prayer for the kids on the bus who had to see this unfold, ok? Let’s do the freeping right thing.
