More on Vince Li, the Greyhound killer

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20080806.BUS06/TPStory/National

That article contains some interesting background on the last 24 hours of Li's life before he attacked Tim McLean on that fated bus. Also provides an interesting, macabre twist at the end re an ad campaign by Greyhound that was recently pulled as a result of these attacks. From the article:

Greyhound has scrapped an ad campaign that extolled the peaceful, worry-free upside of bus travel after the beheading of a passenger near Winnipeg.

The punch line of the ad was: "There's a reason you've never heard of 'bus rage.' "

No doubt, that should have been pulled. Youch.

The victim's name is Tim McLean. There was a Darren interviewed in the article, but he's obviously not the same person.
