"A man who beheaded and cannibalized a fellow passenger on a Greyhound bus in Canada..."

"... won his bid to leave the grounds of the mental hospital where he is being kept, a criminal review board ruled Thursday."
The board said the passes should only be granted if Li's treatment team believes his condition is stable and that it would be "appropriate and safe for him to leave the locked ward." He will have to be escorted at all times by a staff member and a security officer.
The crime occurred only 4 years ago.

If they have him shackled with enough antipsychotics he will be fine. The problems will occur when they let him out and he stops taking them.

4 years for beheading and canabalizing a person in Canada seems about right to me. I mean it's not like he was speaking out against radical Islam or something terrible like that.

"The crime"? No mens rea, no crime.

Just think of it as an accident- instead of falling under the bus (for example), the victim fell under, umm, the control of a mentally ill bus passenger.

"appropriate and safe for him to leave the locked ward."

Not appropriate and safe for anyone else, though.

The US is not much behind the Canucks in this postmodern idiocy.

The lack of trust in government extends to all its spheres, not least of which is the farce of criminal justice.

He should be required to spend all his release time in the neighborhoods of the criminal board members.

I'm in favor of this sort of thing because it creates jobs.

Even American inmates are superior to Canadians. American inmates had the sense to beat Dahmer to death.

Whatever happened to putting a rabid dog down? Liberals are so compassionate in having your loved ones dismembered by some psychopath in order to feed their self righteous notions of how to treat criminals.

They should make him promise not to kill and eat anyone.

I'm having second thoughts on annexing Canada.

I did have a few names picked out, though:

Really North Dakota.

U.S, eh.

Canuckistan.

Codenames lunch and dinner.

His first response: "know where can I get some good take-out?"

elkh1 said...

He should change menu and eat dogs instead.

Mr. Forward said...

If he had eaten the greyhound would half the country give him four more years?

edutcher said...

Remind me to avoid Canuckistan

gutless said...

Oh, Canada.

Ha!
