Oh come on HS! You think mental illness only strikes "proles"?

Half Sigma we are all interested in your thoughts on this crime, which has gripped the nation's interest like few other crimes have. What is it about this incident that is so fascinating?

My theory - the recent fascination with zombies/walking undead, especially the last decade's interest in "fast undead" is a manifestation of our collective dread about urban unrest and anarchy. (George Romero is on record as saying this was the original intent of the Night of the Living Dead.)

The description of the crime was just too disturbingly close to a scene out of a zombie movie.

Deep down America is terrified frenzied growling naked black men will eat our faces while people cycle by.

Which Stuy grad do you find more jarring - Ronald Poppo or Eric Bellucci?

Deep down?

Drugs can bring anyone low.

I attended a prestigious high school. Some of my classmates are losers, although most are doing quite well. A quality high school, or even a high IQ, is no guarantee of success.

Paul Rise said, "Deep down America is terrified frenzied growling naked black men will eat our faces while people cycle by."
Were we as as scared of Jeffrey Dahmer? This cannibal crime is horrific, but I don't think this should be construed as a racial incident. I would need to see some evidence that black people are more likely to eat human flesh than people of other races.

Actually all the zombies in that movie were White people. The hero/lead was a black male.

How did you miss that?

America's Number 1# fear is WHITE RACISM. That's why the Zimmerman story blew up. That's why Obama was elected, that's why MSNBC is desperately trying to get ratings off Trump's birther nonsense.

The face eater is getting attention because, well, a drugged up lunatic chewed another man's face off. Kinda bizarre don't ya think. The story will soon be forgotten and we'll be back to the next example of White Racism haunting the land.

Relax.

"America's Number 1# fear is WHITE RACISM"

I keep expecting this story to be reported as "Police shoot an unarmed black man!"

Mental illness strikes smart people as well as dumb people. It was a big mistake to shut down most of the mental hospitals and turn the people out. A lot of them end up living under bridges, etc. and a small number of them are extremely violent.

There has been a bizarre case in Canada in the last week involving cannibalism. A deranged freak (a gay porn star) in Montreal video-taped himself killing some poor guy with an ice pick and dismembering him and eating part of him. He posted the video on line last week at "snuff" sites. (An American lawyer Roger Renville saw the video, believed it was real, figured out it happened in Canada, and contacted police in Canada. But they brushed him off, telling him it was a fake)

Several years ago this same freak posted videos of himself killing kitten. An animal rights group had a bounty on his head.

Any way, last week the Montreal killer mailed body parts of his victims body out to Liberal and Conservative party headquarters, and other places. Yesterday (May 30) a foot arrived at the Conservative party headquarter in Ottawa and that is when the story began to break.

The latest news I've heard is that he may have travelled to Europe in the last few days.

Total depraved whack job, but on one web site he claims to have an IQ of 165.

You couldn't make this stuff up.

What happens with the victim now? His face needs to be reconstructed. He'll need a lot of medical attention. If he gets discharged, he'll be back on the street, but its too expensive to keep him in the hospital. His sister thought he was dead.
What happens to him?

@blue willow
Don't forget that the dude is rumoured to have been Karla Homolka's ( famous canadian female serial sex killer) boyfriend or husband at some point. He denies ever having been involved with Karla but there are pictures of him ( lukka) hanging out with her. It does say someting about Karla that she managed to find herself in the company of such a sick individual after her release from jail. Her career might not be over.

@ ogunsiron

Canada is a soft on crime leftist dystopia. I hope more incidents like this expose the socialist paradise for what it is.

Yes, the justice system in Canada has a lot of problems, but the reason Homolka got such a light sentence was because of a police screw up. They thought they needed her testimony to put Bernardo away so they made a plea deal with her. If they had searched the house properly they would have found the video tapes that these monsters made of the murders. Still it is a disgrace that Homolka is a free woman. A lot of Canadians are very angry about it.

I'm wondering if the gay porn/psycho/kitten killer freak who is currently on the run could possibly be Bernardo's son. He grew up in Scarborough and may have been born around the time period when Bernardo was on a rape spree in Scarborough. Many people are commenting on the physical resemblance between the two.
