Just think how the article would have read if this had happened in Texas.

I'd rather be shot than stabbed repeatedly.
I hope to god you're joking.


Actually being shot is less painful than being stabbed. The vast majority of gunshot wound victims note that the pain is bad once the adrenaline wears off, but that the initial impact and entry feels like you're being punched or kicked very hard. Different pain receptors are involved.

Lol, on the radio they said "this is the first time anything like this has happened in Canada" and that just made me wonder how common on-bus decapitations are elsewhere...

I was also wondering why no one tried to stop the man.
Guns or not, he's only got a knife... And you're all going to run and allow this to happen?

Everyone aboard that bus is going to hell, whether they believe in Jesus or not.

If someone just decapitated someone in front of you, and still has the knife, you're going to take him on? Bull.

I'd imagine it was a rather large knife.

He decapitated the guy after everyone was off the bus, at least the way I read the story.

If I see someone stabbing some guy, I'd hope I'd not be the only one who tried to stop him.
A gun would be a different story, but a knife?
1) I've got my own on me 99% of the time
2) Even if 2-3 people attacked the lunatic, it would be easy enough to overpower him.

If I died saving that guy, at least I die a hero right? Not like I've got a whole lot of things to live for anyways.

I'm sure those are useful

And sorry, this is the same as every bad situation internet toughguy thread. I don't believe for one second that you would take on someone who had a knife, even if there were three of you, because the odds are pretty good that someone is getting stabbed, at least in the hands/ arm, and it's a natural reaction to not want to have that happen.

I LOL'ed hard.

I think anyone with any training in self-defense knife fighting probably would be willing to take him on. That said, I didn't see the knife, and sometimes size does matter. Also, if you're not carrying your own knife, taking on someone with a knife is not a fun proposition.

Ya and its like The Joker said, Guns are too quick, you don't get to savor all of the little emotions. where as with knives you get to see who people really are, so in a way i know your friends better than you do. (inaudible mouth smack and that evil puppy eye look he did)
