Vince Li, the accused in the Greyhound bus beheading! August 5, 2008

Li, who is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Tim McLean aboard a Greyhound Bus last Wednesday, stared at the floor through much of his brief appearance in court Tuesday.

 Court heard how, since his arrest, the 40-year-old has declined to speak with justice officials and a legal aid lawyer assigned to his case.

 When the judge asked him if he wanted a lawyer, Li shook his head no and then quietly said “please kill me.”

 Li’s remark was heard by reporters and confirmed by court clerks but was not acknowledged by the judge. The judge did order a psychiatric evaluation for Li. According to a police report read by the Crown, officers discovered a plastic bag containing an ear, nose and part of a mouth in the pocket of the accused. The night of the deadly attack, Dalmyn said the only response officers received from Li: “I have to stay on the bus forever”.

Witnesses have described what they call an uprovoked attack in which McLean was savagely stabbed in front of horrified passengers, and then decapitated.

 Li, who recently immigrated to Canada from China, lived with his wife in Edmonton prior to the attack. He worked as a newspaper delivery man as well as at a Wal-Mart in the city. Reported The Canadian Press

I think Li’s punishment should be somewhat like this. He should be taken to a laboratory and constrained first. After that his body should be used for experimentation of new drugs and medicines. He may be used for testing the strength of cosmetics etc instead of testing them on animals. All the experiments that are done on rats and other animals for the benefit of mankind should be performed on him. If he dies at some point, well and good. But if he doesn’t, then his body should be continued to be used for such experiments.
