Greyhound bus killer found not criminally responsible

Postby Egaladeist » Sat Mar 07, 2009 6:17 pm

Vince Li has been found not criminally responsible for the unprovoked killing and beheading of fellow passenger Timothy McLean on a Greyhound bus last summer.

Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench Judge John Scurfield said Thursday that Li, 40, could not be found guilty of murder and is not criminally responsible for the crime because he was mentally ill at the time of the killing.

"These grotesque acts are appalling... but are suggestive of a mental disorder," the judge said.

"He did not appreciate the act he committed was wrong."

Li had pleaded not guilty to a charge of second-degree murder. Psychiatric evidence at his trial suggested he is a schizophrenic who suffered a major psychotic episode last July 30 when he fatally stabbed McLean, 22, ate some of the body parts, and cut off McLean's head.

What I think was criminal was the other passengers who just sat and watched.

True, but if you saw someone cutting someones head off with a knife would you seriously intervene?

Can't say I would or wouldn't...but probably not...1. because it'd be too late to help 2. insane people are usually very strong, so it might take three or four to bring him down, especially with a knife in his hand...I certainly wouldn't try it alone.

LMAO, he'd run up to him with a TAZ Zone tee-shirt and ask him to wear it before the photogaphers get there

I'd still like to get a TAZ Store up...I attempted to create one a couple of times, but my skills just weren't up to it...

How about a Taz bumper sticker on the coffin? Or is that just way too demented?
