Vince Li is not a prisoner; he's a patient.

He suffers from a terrible disease that screws up the chemical make-up in the brain which can result in a person doing some pretty fucked up things (as demonstrated).

Proper medication will "normalize" the guy but the problem is making sure that he takes his medications regularly.

That cannot be guaranteed.

So, imho, he should remain in some sort of environment whereby that is assured, be that environment a hospital or a group home or even if he must report in daily to a facility of sorts to take his meds.

Don't forget, there are a lot of people just like him out there only they haven't done what he did.....yet.

You know, I'm soft on criminals by US standards - meaning I think they have rights and are entitled to untainted prosecutions and should be protected from sexual assault and other violence while in custody - but what you're saying just doesn't seem fare....

Vince Li doesn't need "therapy." He needs to be put down.

The people who are so lacking in empathy that their approach to the horror that Li committed is to "diagnose" him, "treat" him, and then release him onto the public are seriously messed up. It would be generous to offer them "therapy," rather than simply putting them down as well as part of the same cancer plaguing society.

You should take it upon yourself to become more knowledgeable about mental illness.

Most people forget to realize that the brain is an organ, just like your liver or onions, but a hellava lot more complicated.

We would never consider killing someone that was diagnosed with a heart problem, but for some reason, we do with someone with a brain problem.

Heh...ya...cannibalism is pretty much looked down upon in most conventional circles, and, in this case, clearly demonstrates just how out of touch with reality Li was at the time, imho.

Because of privacy issues little is known about Li, his demeanor, character, personality etc. The media calls his names, labels him a beheader and focuses on negatives only, giving the public the opinion he's ready to go on a rampage. He waqs free for decades and killed once, when extremelly ill. Keep it in perspective and hope for a positive outcome.
Well now we know he has internet privileges....

You have a brain problem, judging from your response.

The logical conclusion of this trend of "pathologizing" immoral behaviour is that every immoral act should be treated as a "condition" to be "treated."

What prompts this psychobabble? A narcissistic, self-important affinity to assert one's self as different -- as more perceptive and more enlightened -- giving one a platform to condescend upon others. No different than the affinity of others toward fundamentalist religions, which give them platforms to condescend upon others and regard themselves as more righteous. Please, find a way to worship yourself that is less sociopathic and destructive.

it is Canada's immigration policy that should be blamed.

this guy spent almost 40 years in China as a computer engineer with no problem. after he and wife moved to Canada, he failed to get any decent job, he worked in MacDonald, did cleaning, just before he committ that Greyhound beheading, he was doing newspaper delivery. and then his wife left him.

too many Asian immigrants especially from China have such problems. can't find meaningful job, wife run away, can't find any girl friend. develop mental illness.

Canada is a sick place.

How did a schizo get pass our Immigration authorities?

He should have never been allowed here in the first place.

Longer ago, immigrants were quarantined if they arrived with a disease. Now they are welcomed with open arms and full of HIV. Same thing with this Chinese schizo...should have been sent home.

Do you really know what the words in your post mean, or did you just throw big words in your post, in order to come across as intelligent?

Liberalism is not necessarily politics. It is a notion in society that, among other things, promotes failure.
