Not a feel-good story--graphic

HoneycurlsHoneycurls Posts: 1,889Registered Users
This absolutely terrifies me. The way the attacker is described as being calm and robotic during this vicious, brutal, unprovoked attack. The age of the victim, the randomness, the grisly nature, the close quarters with no escape. It's all very, very disturbing. This is more like the plot to a bad slasher movie than a real-life happening. Surreal.

There was another video story on cnn.com on this where one of the eyewitnesses was describing the whole thing. Had I been that close and witnessed such a thing, I would be a quivering, dazed mass of frazzled nerves.

How awful for the victim and his family. How absolutely tragic and shocking.

Sometimes a news story will stand out from all the others on that day...this is one of those for me.
OK, I admit it.....I'm an alias! I wasn't born with the name Honeycurls!
:lurk: Dood, get over it; there's no time limit on lurking.

    Oh my God. Even with all of the grisly news stories I've seen, I wasn't expecting that. He was only my age - and he died in such a horrible way, for no reason at all. This robot needs to be deactivated, and fast. I can't even type very much, because my brain isn't giving me words. It's just so awful.
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:

    Beggining to read that slightly scared me because my brother is riding greyhound in Canada right now. Fortunately he shouldn't be around Manitoba but damn, that is absolutely horrific. He's on his way to Ft. Saint George in B.C. but he did miss his connection, and he had to sleep around the terminal last night so he probably would be sleeping now. He would have had to have taken the wrong bus, so I'm not worried it's him, but it gives me a bit of pause.

    Yeah, no reason to worry because he said he was waiting for an 8. a.m. bus this morning in Vancouver and he didn't have a reason to go that direction. Read the whole story now...and don't know what to say either.

    Wow that is highly disturbing, it's even more scary because I take greyhound a lot from Albany (go to school there) to NYC and to have something like this happen is really scary

    Now if I take greyhound (hoping to get a car!) this story will be in the back of my head, Ill keep a close eye on my seat mate!!!!

    My heart goes out to the victims family, that is a horrible way to die and at such a young age
    Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

    I thought this was the story you might be talking about - when I read your OP. Can't even go to sleep on a bus anymore...

    I wish they had just killed the attacker outright. He may have a good chance of a diminished capacity defense. I'm not a violent person, but someone like that just needs to be put down.

    Some guy told me about that today, I thought he was making it up. Holy mess.

    How bizzare! Poor guy. I'm sure no one saw that coming. This guy needs to be put away out of society. I never ride the bus, thank god. There are some real weirdos out there. This guy was so butchered for no apparent reason. This is so sad for him & his family.

    Wow, that's truly shocking and just freaky. The things the guy did... yikes. It's scary. And for no apparent reason! What a sick person.

    I just read this.... how awful. Did you read how everyone ran from the bus? Did anyone try to intervene and stop the stabbing???????

    To be fair, I would imagine that it was too late for the poor victim by the time someone noticed, and he could have massacred all the other passengers if they'd intervened.


    Scary scary story.

    That was my thought, too.

    My God, what this kid's family must be going through, to lose a child like this.

    Why didn't anyone try to help him?

    I went to my friend's house last night & his boyfriend told me about this. I was sure he was mistaken or exaggerating.

    And here I thought nothing in the news could shock me anymore. :sad8:

    Oh my God. That is sick, demented, twisted, I can't think of enough words to describe because there are none. Wow, this guy is living proof that some people are just sick enough to be put down.

    Honeycurls--how do you post a link the way you did in your inital post? I still can't figure out how to change the name like that so it doesn't show the entire link.

    Here is another horrific incident I just came across. :sad8:
