You don't stand up and reason with him...you stand up and KILL him...that is if you have the balls to do that rather than cower under your seat and wet yourself as these passengers did. COWARDS.
I guess you didnt read my post #140, but here it is again for you BIG MAN:

"This from the CTVA article I found, so all who thought it was horrible that nobody tried to help rest assure they did:

"Passengers attempt rescue

Caton gathered a small group of people to go back and help the victim, said CTV correspondent Murray Oliver in Winnipeg.

"They returned to the back of the bus to find that the person who was stabbing the person in the neck had now sawed off the head of (the victim)."

The man, with the head in one hand and the knife in the other, then tried to attack the other passengers, said Oliver.

The group was able to exit the bus and slammed the door behind them.

The man then stabbed the door with his knife but was unable to break through and get off the bus. Eventually, he attempted to start up the bus to drive away but the operator had hit a switch, disabling the vehicle."

Too bad gun laws are so strict in good old socialist Canada.
Somebody should have taken this freak out, permanently.
Yeah, then the guy could have had five guns and killed everybody on the bus.

This lunatic will be given his day in court. Then they will slap his hand and put him in a mental instuition, where he will be given treatment. Then he will be put in prison for how long????? All the while he will get meals, health care, cable tv, maybe air conditioning, all at the expense of taxpayers. Meanwhile a totally inocent person was butchered. Doesn't seem right does it? Our society has sunk to very low levels

How nice another American hater....Let's just say that there are pshyco's and freaks all over the world. Just check out international news reports. It is not the country that a person comes from, it's an individuals actions, or choice they made. It's individuals like you that help to make the world judgmental and racist. Thanks ever so much for your destructive contirbutions to society.
And another thing to all that are aginst guns or tried to make this a gun control issue, which it is not. I am not one that likes guns because they can be dangerous in the wrong hands. But I like the fact that if need be I can own a gun and use it if needed to be to protect myself and my family. Kudos to the one that mentioned use of metal detectors before boarding a bus. Good idea they use them in schools, federal/government buildings and airports. Why not bus terminals?
Lets get this straight I don't hate all Americans!!(JUST THE ONES THAT THINK CANADIANS ARE SOCIALIST COMMIES).

I know what you mean, I was lucky enough lol, to be on a bus with a bunch of negros. They were loud and threatining several pasingers, I didnt sleep either. And that indian who dosnt like the stereotype should get her head out of her **** and wake up. I dont think I'd be to thrilled traveling with indians either.
It sickens me that people like you reproduce. If anyone need to get their head of their a** it is you. Individuals with your pea brain are reasons that people should need permission to reproduce. Yet another person with destructive not constructive views of individuals with mix backgrounds. Oh yeah I am also Scottish...any thought on that a**hole! Once again evil is evil and constricted to the color of anyone skin.

now the liberal loons are calling for a knife registry!

when are we going to be rid of the drug addled peace and love generation that have ruined this country ...gay marrige ....gun registrys....multi-culturalism ...globalism...enviornmentalis m....femminism...liberalism... socialism..

a knife registry would be just as effective as the billion dollar gun registry ..for the citizens who were no problem with guns to begin with...the bad guys are still shooting and stabbing without pause..

the only difference now is that the good citizens are more rectricted in obtaining and using firearms for what they were intended....protection.

just how would a knife registry have stopped this product of multi-culturalism from sneaking his knife aboard the bus?...

if this country was run by men who had a pair, we would not be prevented from packing firearms ,and this dirtbag who lopped the head off an innocent man would have got an injection of lead and saved the taxpayer millions of dollars in court costs and prison..

AGAIN, ONE guy with a knife in one hand and a head in the other and a GROUP of people were too chicken to take him out. This is a ONE MAN job for an Army Ranger like me ...behind a keyboard or not. I and others like me have been in far worse situations but we are NOT cowards. I guess relying on big brother to the south for protection and taking weapons from your citizens made them all puzzies I guess.
You are about as RUDE as they come, and I feel sorry for anyone that has to come face to face with you.

Look it buddy my brother was one who was taken hostage in Iran in 78 and was part of the Air Force, are you saying that those guys were cowards when a idiot who never held a gun before took them hostage and they could do nothing.. I am so glad you think you know everything. And like I said before I truly feel sorry for anyone that meets you in person...

What good did they think going back would do? They should have done something immediately,while they were still on the bus.

And why did another young man have to die? Greyhound seriously needs better security in place.
Unfortunately security on buses is very difficult to regulate but in this case he had to have the knife on him. According to the article it was a very large butcher/hunting knife so just sticking it in the waistband of his pants probably wasn't an option. I wonder if anyone had noticed a large knife sheath hanging off this guy before this happened and never said anything? Security screening on Greyhound style buses could be possible if metal detectors/baggage screening took place just prior to bording. It would not be a perfect solution but it might hinder some weapons from getting on the buses. City buses on the other hand are impossible to regulate due to the number of stops located on any given street.

I can't find it in myself to point a finger at the passengers that fled the bus and didn't help the victim. I'm sure the instinct to run for safety combined with sheer terror/shock overtook all of them when this happened. I mean let's face it, this isn't something you would ever expect to witness or have to react to in your lifetime. They simpy did what any of us would have done.

I feel so horrible for this family that was waiting for their son to get off of this bus and come home. My heart is breaking for them. I feel badly for the passengers that had to witness this and what they are going to visualize for the rest of their lives. Most of all right now I am engulfed in anger towards this savage that did this! I firmly believe in an eye for an eye and this man should have this same horrible act done to him.

how to disarm your citizens?

how to force homosexual marrige down your throats by orders in council ,and force of law?

how to appoint socialists and femminists to high governmental positions ?..where they go to work changing and destroying your traditional institutions..

how to use the media and educational systems to indoctrinate your children and citizens into how to be good little socialists/marxists/ and liberals?...global citizens.

how to turn your country into a turd world cesspool through the insane devisive policy of multi-culturalism?...

yeah!....you could learn a lot about how NOT to ruin YOUR country ....
