I wouldn't be surprised if you are right. I wonder if this guy wasn't being dosed with a prozac-type drug, as he was reportedly depressed beforehand. Anyway didn't the cops start searching bus passengers in Canada right after this happened? That is always the acid test for a mind-control op.

I'm sorry I have to agree to disagree with your use of the death penalty. Yes he poses a threat. Yes he is a tax burden. But can you seriously sit there and look someone in the eye and tell them that they NEED to die because of a mental defect and we can't trust them ?

Call me simple, or just plain old ignorant, but I think the system could have saved itself a whack of dough by simply noting the obvious when this incident occurred . . .
Then again, I guess a guy sitting on a greyhound bus doing his lumberjack impression on a neckstump of some unsuspecting victim all while singing the theme to Oklahoma! just might be sane.
Good thing we've got all those psychoanalysts around . . . maybe they can ply their craft with the 'economists' now and figure out that we may/maynot/are/might be soon in a recession/depression/economic slump.

Logically he should be in a mental institution, plain and simple.
How does it make sense to put a person into a prison who could put other inmates and guards at risk by outbursts because he is not being treated properly.
Also, everyone seems to think a mental institution is a piece of cake compared to prison. A high security section of a mental institution is probably just like prison, if not worse...especially if you are in a ward with only highly disturbed patients.
Let's say you were a rancher that had many sheep and one of the sheep went crazy and decapitated another sheep, so you kill it. A little while later, another sheep goes crazy and kills a few of your sheep...so you kill it. This keeps happening, and instead of asking questions, or determining cause, prevention, etc. you just keep killing these sheep. Wouldn't you want somebody to take the crazy sheep in so that it can get treatment, and society can learn of warning signs/prevention methods for other crazy sheep in the midst. Especially if it was becoming more and more common on many ranches everywhere across the land.
Bad analogy...but the point has been made. This man will be investigated by many people, not simply treated. How do we stop this from happening in the future if we just killed these people or locked them away in prison?
Try walking a mile in his shoes. Imagine snapping back to reality and realizing what you've done. I wouldn't be surprised if this man kills himself.
And by the way, do the people who support the death penalty realize that it usually costs more then keeping a person in prison? Extra legal fees, etc. plus it can takes many years before they actually get killed anyway.

No offense but if you have ever been to a mental institute it is essentially a prison for those deemed to be threats. Violent people , or those convicted of violent outbursts generally are sedated and kept in solitary rooms until such time that the drugs, therapy or other methods show signs of working then they are release to general population rooms where they are monitored HEAVILY. People have this idea that a mental institute is this place where you can do whtever and eat Jello just for acting out a bit. This is far from the case. Please take the time and go to one of these facilities or talk to a healthcare professional who works in one.
