So You CAN’T Kill Carnies Anymore?

Vince Weiguang Li, who immigrated to Canada from China in 2004, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 22-year-old carnival worker Tim McLean. He has yet to enter a plea.

Thirty-seven passengers were aboard the Greyhound from Edmonton, Alberta, to Winnipeg, Manitoba, as it traveled at night along a desolate stretch of the TransCanada Highway about 12 miles from Portage La Prairie, Manitoba last Wednesday. Witnesses said Li attacked McLean unprovoked, stabbing him dozens of times.

As horrified passengers fled the bus, Li severed McLean’s head, displaying it to some of the passengers outside the bus, witnesses said.

A police officer at the scene reported seeing the attacker hacking off pieces of the victim’s body and eating them, according to a police report.

Li was been ordered by a judge earlier this week to undergo a psychiatric evaluation before he faces trial.

Seriously?  This is frowned upon in Canada now?  I thought Carnie-Killing was a God-given right throughout all of North America.

The times they is a’changing, I guess.

  1. You’re a cynical fuck.

  2. I knew it was over the line but I couldn’t help myself.

  3. Very similar to Jonathan Swifts response to the potato famine…eat the children! Sometimes sarcasm truly gets the point across. Canada is certainly trying to keep up the the Jones’ on this one…peaceful loving country….my ass!

  4. Li should be tortured to death very slowly.

  5. Over the line isn’t even close to how far out of the boundaries of good taste you stepped. Ever stop and think that Tim McLean has a family? Being desensitized to extreme violence is an unfortunate fact in North American society, but that doesn’t mean that you have the right to dehumanize it.
