Interesting. Where's the truth in advertising?

A man beheaded his 5-year-old sister in front of police after killing another sister. WCVB reports.
I wonder what the policeman was thinking when he witnessed the beheading?

Yeah, that does seem like a very young age to be decapitated.

Just read that she was celebrating her 5th birthday the day of her beheading too. Now that makes it even more sad.

Revelus was agitated after a fist fight with a neighbour on Friday and, about 24 hours later, his anger spilled over into murder, police said. The siblings' parents were away while their grandmother, who lived with them, was downstairs.

Nevertheless, Revelus knifed Samantha, a budding poet who friends described as graceful and classy. Sarafina called 911 and a policeman on patrol in the area arrived in less than a minute and broke the door down.

But what greeted him was Revelus cutting off little Bianca's head as her birthday cake lay on the kitchen table.

Re: Beheading on Greyhound Bus In Canada

So you're mad at your neigbour - naturally killing your sisters is the only thing to do. WTF!?

And why does a grown man have a 5-year old sister?

Re: Beheading on Greyhound Bus In Canada

He was 23, that's not a ridiculous age span.

I'm kinda surprised the first officer on the scene didn't put the guy down as soon as he beaded the 5 y.o.. Not that I'm questioning his judgment or actions (because how the hell do you properly react to something like that) but I would have guessed shooting would have been the first response.

Re: Beheading on Greyhound Bus In Canada

WTF????

Day passes suggested for bus beheader

WINNIPEG - The doctor of the man who beheaded an innocent passenger aboard a Greyhound Bus less than two years ago is recommending day passes for his client, Vince Li.

The treating psychiatrist believes the man found not criminally responsible for slaying Tim McLean in front of a busload of horrified bystanders is ready to leave his secure mental health facility for hours at a time, provided he is accompanied by two "special constables."

Li's treating psychiatrist says Li continues to suffer hallucinations, but at a reduced intensity and frequency than at the time Tim McLean was killed.

He said Li is assessed as a low homicidal risk and suicide risk, and he responds well to hospital staff.

"His demeanor on the ward, he doesn't argue with staff... he is responsive to their requests."

Meanwhile, McLean's family is lobbying to toughen the law against those found criminally not responsible for killing another person and was previously appalled when a psychiatrist commented Li could be potentially be released within five years.


"Tim's Law" aims to set at least a minimum mental health facility term for mentally ill killers.

Vince Li has been treated at the Selkirk Mental Health Centre since he was found not criminally responsible for the July 2008 killing aboard a Greyhound Bus.

Manitoba's Criminal Code review board will perform annual reviews of Li's mental health as long as he remains in the facility.

His doctor is insane and needs to be placed in psychiatric custody.

Re: Beheading on Greyhound Bus In Canada

Good news. He's been cured and has received an absolute discharge.

http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/man-fou...arge-1.3280420

I remember when this happened. I was living in Regina at the time and used to take the same bus route this happened on regularly to visit friends. The next time I caught a bus out of Winnipeg, they had an extreme security check, with guards asking you questions and you had to submit to letting them search through your carry-on. It was like security at the airport.

In the interest of public safety, at the very least this guy should be closely monitored for many more years, if not the rest of his life. Oh well.
