Another beheading

This isn't new news, so maybe that means it shouldn't be called news, and you've probably already heard this story, but I'm becoming the queen of beheading posts. Matt told me about how a guy in Canada was riding a Greyhound bus and pulled out a hunting knife (not sure if that part it completely accurate) or what I've also heard as being described as a Rambo knife and started stabbing the random kid (kid as in 22 yrs old) sitting next to him. The bus stopped, pulled over, everyone got off, and then the guy cut off the head of the boy he had been stabbing. Seriously. Read about it here.

When I heard this story, it was the first time I've ever felt like capital punishment was OK. Then I thought about it more and changed my mind. Death is just too easy of an out.

(Don't bother arguing with me about the death penalty, cause you just won't succeed.)

Who got you thinking about capital punishment? I was always for the death penalty until Bruce got me thinking a little differently. Grisham books, too, gave me a different view.

Kari! Don't you know that it's the vampires that are doing all these beheadings and weird crimes? Oh, sure... no one would ever say so, because no one really knows about them! But THEY'RE REAL! It's the vampires I tell you! It's the VAMPIRES!!!!!! They're thirsty! They're hunting! Maybe Victoria had some part of her that wasn't thrown away and burned completely and she "resurrected" and is now in Canada to join that coven! Who knows!!!???

I concur on the death penalty. Suffer in prison.... However, I think we should make things a lot harder on them there. Another day and time, I'll go on...

That was one of the most disturbing news stories I've ever read.

If you can argue with truth and sound logic... go ahead.
