Meme creation and narrative set ups are not uncommon these days, so why not include the creation of a concept of zombie apocalypse? We witness narrative creation everyday via the main stream media. Every single war narrative has started somewhere and been built upon through so called news reports until finally the peak is hit, conditions are right, troops and weapons in place, then the shock & awe begins.
All this zombie stuff has called to mind this sad, scary and sordid news. A few years back, 2008 to be precise, an incident took place, in Canada on a Greyhound bus. The attacker was allowed by law enforcement to stay at the scene and commit brutalities unrestrained on his victim, in full view of other passengers, who law enforcement had conveniently moved to just the right viewing position.
In 2008, there was no media meme on zombies. Only your typical "mad man" and such.
Now, everything is zombies and zombie attacks. Why?
I recall at the time of that attack being completely shocked by it all.
August 01/08 Greyhound bus incident-updated with RCMP Press Release
As I followed along with the reports, discrepancies appeared. Inconsistencies became apparent
This news story is beyond bizarre, emotionless killer, silent, wearing sunglasses through the entire slaughter. Random victim, 20 yrs old, stabbed 50-60 times, beheaded, gutted and acts of cannibalism on a grey-hound bus?
An ordinary means of travel for ordinary people.
Problems with the time line. Problems with the police response. Or lack of response. The way the remaining passengers were moved to the best seats in the house. The leaking of a specific audio clip. I doubt it is available any longer. The clip was police talking of the cannibalism that was taking place on the bus as they stood and watched. So much of what happened appeared as if done to maximize the trauma.
I won't relink every post. Just, a few of the most relevant
"Why didn't they do something in that three hours, rather than having my son locked in with this maniac who, there was no question, had done this? And (they) allowed him to defile my son's body in the way that he did? What was their game plan? Why did they wait for him to throw himself out a window or fall out of it?"
To: Tim Mcleans Mom and Family regarding some tough questions- This is a lengthy post. Where the time line discrepancies are picked apart.
Was increased bus security already in the planning?- Transport Canada and Homeland Security working together on "security"
Just to make this whole sordid tale more bizarre, after the McLean/Li incident, law enforcement put two other individuals onto buses with tragic results. One in BC. One in Ontario.
First: Christopher Alguire told the police repeatedly to shoot the attacker, instead they stood around for 4 to 4 1/2 hours.
Secondly: He criticizes the RCMP for moving the passengers to the windshield of the bus, enabling them to witness the atrocities being committed to the young victims body, after he" shepherded" the passengers to the back of the bus
Why would the RCMP do that, unless they had intended to further traumatize the other bus riders? They had the highway closed in both directions, so there was no traffic danger.There is no reasonable answer for this action.
Three tragedies on buses, in one short span of time. Nothing since. Bus travel has been uneventful save for crashes etc. Recently it has been in the news that Vincent Li is being allowed day passes.
You know what else is odd?
Vincent Li, the perp is of Chinese descent, born in China. Tim Mclean, victim, young male 20is.
The perp in the latest cannibal/zombie incident is Newman/Magnotta 20ish, Canadian born.
His victim Jun Lin is 30ish, Chinese descent, born in China.
It is as if these two incidents are the photographic "negatives" of one another
" A negative image is a total inversion of a positive image"
There has been comparisons made of Magnotta & Li Magnotta similar to Li?
There is a post from last month on the Magnotta crime, which also involved cannibalism.
