Just one person's opinion: All right, I've let this story alone for a few days to see what transpires on the news. The stories all ignore one thing...there were at least five to seven adult males on that bus and nobody did anything to help the poor victim. According to witnesses on the bus, the suspect stabbed the victim 5o to 6o times. I'm not a math wiz, but if you ask me, it would take some time to stab someone that many times. So that means that passengers actually watched and counted as the stabbing took place, refusing for whatever reason to intervene. Then, and this is the best part, they watched as the suspect decapitated the victim. Now, to cut someone's head off takes time with a knife and a pair of scissors, probably ten minutes or more at the very least. And the passengers only looked on. This alleged cowardice is disgusting and throws us Canadians into an international view of uncaring pieces of shit, of which the majority of us are not. The Canadian public should voice their horror at this uncaring attitude towards a fellow human suffering such awful agony and demand that the passengers on this bus defend their inaction and indifference to all fellow Canadians and the victim's family. Just as it is a criminal offence to refuse to provide first aid to a person who has been in an accident, is it not the same for refusing to help someone who is being murdered?
