Maybe you all will remember our “spirited” back and forth years ago on the relative merits of Canadian bus passengers sitting on their asses as one of their fellow passengers gets his poor head sawed off, then gnawed on? You know, the same “sat on their asses” do-nothings who decided two years later they were SO TRAUMATIZED they had to sue the bus company?
Yeah. THOSE guys.
Well, the lunatic who caused all this grief IS, in classic Canadian fashion, NOW a free man.
FREEDOM GRANTED TO MAN WHO BEHEADED BUS PASSENGER IN CANADA
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — A Canadian man who was found not criminally responsible for beheading and cannibalizing a fellow passenger on a Greyhound bus has been granted his freedom.
Manitoba’s Criminal Code Review Board announced Friday it has given Will Baker, formerly known as Vince Li, an absolute discharge, meaning he is no longer subject to monitoring.
Baker, a diagnosed schizophrenic, killed Tim McLean, a young carnival worker who was a complete stranger to Baker, in 2008. A year later he was found not criminally responsible due to mental illness.
“NOT SUBJECT TO MONITORING” Heh.
“He is no longer a violent person,” Summerville said. “I will say, yes, he absolutely understands that he has to (take his medication) and has a desire to live a responsible, moral life and never succumb to psychotic episodes and not to hurt anybody ever again.”
That should turn out well.
And WHEN it does, I sure hope the NEXT round of Canadians who have half a chance to distract him while he’s in the process of murdering another human being in a most horrific fashion…um…DO SO.
