One more Reason Not To Take Bus

(CNN) -- As horrified travelers watched, a Greyhound Canada bus passenger repeatedly stabbed and then decapitated a young man who was sitting and sleeping beside him, a witness said Thursday....

...Caton said the victim was sleeping with his head leaning against the window when the attack happened. Caton said he shouted at the other passengers, many of whom also were sleeping, to leave. "Everybody got off the bus. Me and a trucker that stopped and the Greyhound driver ran up to the door to maybe see if the guy was still alive or we could help or something like that," Caton said.

"And when we all got up, we saw that the guy was cutting off the guy's head. ... When he saw us, he came back to the front of the bus, told the driver to shut the door. He pressed the button and the door shut, but it didn't shut in time, and the guy was able to get his knife out and take a swipe at us," Caton said.
The world is getting crazier by the day.

And no one tried to stop this animal? Not a soul?

It doesn't sound like it. I'd like to think that I would have tried, but who knows.

It is pretty darn scary.

From the press it look like those that could do something tried but it was too late. They evacuated the women and children away from the animal and by the time they got back to the bus he was already waving the poor man's head around.
