Vince Li, man who beheaded passenger on Greyhound bus, given absolute discharge by Ian Hettingkedge - Mon, 13 Feb 2017 18:52:33 EST ID:pLlEOZYt No.155794 Ignore Report Quick Reply

Vince Li, the man who was found not criminally responsible for beheading a man on a Greyhound bus in 2008, has been granted an absolute discharge.

The Manitoba Criminal Code Review Board ordered the discharge on Friday, saying Li, now known as Will Lee Baker, does not pose a significant safety threat.

Vince Li OK'd to move to Winnipeg group home
Vince Li could get absolute discharge

Baker was found to have been suffering from untreated schizophrenia when he stabbed, beheaded and partially cannibalized Tim McLean, 22.

McLean's mother, Carol de Delley, a vocal critic of Canada's not criminally responsible laws and who believes Baker should remain in custody for life, posted to Facebook on Friday that she has nothing to say about his discharge.

"I have no comment today. I have no words," de Delley wrote.

Baker was found not criminally responsible in 2009 and spent seven years in treatment at the Selkirk Mental Health Centre before being allowed to move to Winnipeg, where he was treated at Health Sciences Centre.

Last year, he was permitted to move into independent living, but he had to abide by certain rules, which included taking medications and attending counselling appointments.

Although part of me is happy that a guy not criminally responsible for what he did is able to get a second chance, I cant help but think it's entirely wrong. He killed and began eating a person because he wasn't medicated, and now he'll be free to not medicate himself if he chooses and have the whole situation happen again. They stress that he realizes how important his medication is, and he likely does, but who's to say he always will?

We've all gone through rough patches in life, and sometimes things get so bad we quit caring about our own future and do something irresponsible. If this happens to him, and he decides to stop medicating, it could very well cost someone their life. Whats done is done, I'm just glad that if worse comes to worse, the blood won't be on my hands. Unless God tells him to kill me, that is.

Realistically, all he needs is heavy medication and supervision. It's not necessary to keep someone under lockup forever because they were unmedicated and started hearing God telling them that they needed to stop an alien invasion of Earth. Severe mental illness killed that guy on the bus.

Absolutely, which is why it's distressing to see them give him an absolute discharge instead of a conditional discharge. It wouldn't take much to make sure this doesn't happen again. I do think we should focus on reintegrating the mentally ill back into society, but I don't think that route is the best for this kind of case.

No yeah I agree that the possibility for a simple release is kind of off at this point, but all they've actually done now is put him in a group home under supervision, which isn't as expensive I bet as housing him in a prison.

Sure they say he may have the possibility of being let go for good, but courts in America also told Charlie Manson that he was eligible for parole, lol. Just because a court says as a matter of procedure and law (based on sentencing guidelines, usually) that someone can go free eventually, doesn't mean it'll ever happen.

You have two ____, both are broken. One ____ killed a stranger in their sleep in a public place, decapitated said stranger, then proceeded to mutilate and eat the murdered person in front of others. The other ____ has not murdered anyone, and while prone to outbursts in public spaces when confronted and is easily irritable and makes others uncomfortable with their rambling and frenzied speech in public.

They're both broken, both suffering from the exact same condition, and there's no guarantee you can fix either one. That being said, which one do you attempt to fix? Would you attempt to fix both even if the end result could be failure on your behalf and your failure putting others in danger? At what point do you prioritize the lives of others that could be affected by these broken _____ above your desire to fix them? Or do you not consider the collateral damage because it does not affect you and you're convinced will not affect you in any way?

That's irrelevant, he's an actual schizophrenic. That being said, not all schizophrenics murder, decapitate, mutilate, and eat people. I'm all for medicating and rehabilitating non-dangerous schizophrenics, "non-dangerous" meaning ones that have not shown any inclination of causing serious harm to others (acting hostile, shouting at people, or attempting to hit them with their fists would not be considered "dangerous" in this case). Li is a "dangerous" schizophrenic that has a documented case of an evil act.

I get it that Canadians pride themselves as being the tolerant North, but it's irresponsible to let someone like Li out into the public with no supervision just because you believe you've "cured" him. Institutionalize someone like Li, allow them to work and converse with others institutionalize to quell your concerns and allow him to live a controlled, but reasonable life, until he dies.

People die every day. People get murdered by completely sane people every day.

What is your outrage about that?

People always go batshit insane when a crazy person commits murder, calling for death penalties or life imprisonment, and then some regular guy beats his brother-in-law to death over a debt, or stabs his wife to death because he was jealous of her talking to the neighbour - and people just think "oh that's just murder, he'll just do life and maybe they'll shave some years off by the time he's elderly if he has been nice in prison."

What's the logic in that? The crazy guy had no control over his actions when he murdered someone, meanwhile the sane person was in FULL CONTROL when he decided to murder someone.

This is completely batshit insane. People are deadly afraid of crazy people killing, but no one fucking sees that ANYONE AROUND YOU could just murder you for some personal subjective reason while being completely sane.

No shit, it's because you can't anticipate what some crazy nutjob is gonna do. They're sitting on a bus and then they decide that they should really kill you, completely out of the blue. In both of the examples you gave, you can understand why they did it and see the logic behind it. That doesn't mean you agree with it or think it wasn't bad / wrong / stupid / immoral / whatever, just that you can process the situation and make some sense of it. I'd also argue that the husband stabbing his wife for talking to the neighbour straddles the line between sane and mentally unhinged and that a dude killing his wife after walking in on her cheating on him would have been a better example, but that's not the point.

People don't like things they can't wrap their heads around. It's really as simple as that. It's the same reason why our ancestors had a hundred gods for every part of life, there was a bunch of shit they couldn't possibly begin to explain and it was unnerving so when somebody came up with an answer, everybody was on board.

How is it not relevant? Because you don't want to argue for child rape?

You're right, child rape is unsavory compared to being stabbed to death, beheaded, and cannibalized.

The truth is you're making excuses for a homicidal lunatic because this particular homicidal lunatic is more mentally unstable than normal homicidal lunatic. I can't wrap my head around how that logic makes sense to you, so I wont. Instead, I'm going write the following:

If Vince Li was a sane man in all respects, and he stabbed, beheaded, and cannibalized a person, he should go to prison for life.

If Vince Li was a diagnosed scizophrenic, and he stabbed, beheaded, and cannibalized a person, he should go to prison for life.

And I'll put this forward too:

If any of you see me running around stabbing, beheading, and eating people, feel free to put a bullet in my head. I would prefer being dead to being a danger to everyone around me.

No, it isn't relevant because what the catholic church does does or would do in a hypothetical scenario has no bearing on this at all. I can't fathom why you think it would.

There's a reason people aren't help criminally culpable for actions committed when they're mentally unhinged, it's because they're not intentionally committing a crime. The law makes a distinction between willful and unwillful acts, hence separate charges for manslaughter and murder. They're not in control, their illness is. That's why you medicate them, because it solves the problem. People who are (relatively) sane and murderous are inherently dangerous, people who are schizophrenic and have a violent episode are no longer dangerous when they're on their mediation.

It's a totally relevant question, because it doesn't matter exactly what was going on inside the mind of the person to see the effect of said person on society. If the person was just murderous, or if he was completely losing his shit and became murderous, it doesn't matter, they're both fucking murderous. The whole point of jailing and prosecuting people is to place threats to society in a place where they're no longer threats to society. The fact that he has a diagnosed condition doesn't change the threat that he poses.

Thankfully we live in a world where the people who actually know what they're talking about are occasionally listened to and their knowledge can be used to discover what's actually true and act with reality in mind.

It was god talking to him, not demons. I believe he should be reintegrated, however he should still be monitored on a regular basis. He's likely harmless when medicated, but leaving a proven violent schizophrenic in charge of medicating himself doesn't sit well with me. All it takes is someone to check up on him once a day.

I just wanna drop in and mention some things to you guys, as a Winnipeg native who remembers the original incident vividly and has had a lot of experience in the local mental healthcare system.

Vince Li is not a free man, don't misunderstand this, he meets judges yearly who'll review his case and any relevant changes and decide if he can remain free. He cannot move without the approval of his medical team. He takes his medication under legal supervision, I'm not sure the exact details but this means that either someone is watching him swallow pills every single day or he's being injected with large doses of long lasting medications monthly, if he were to skip out on this there would be a manhunt and likely criminal charges separate from the incident years ago. He lives in a secure halfway house with 24/7 psychiatric monitoring, the proposed Absolute Release in the years to come would mean he could move into a private residence and likely move down from 24/7 surveillance to daily or weekly visits to ensure compliance with his medication. If nothing else this'll save our healthcare system money and manpower that could be routed to people who are both in much more danger of acute mental illness and who havn't committed a crime.
This comes after 8 years of intense psychological evaluation and treatment, his psyche is more understood than almost anyone in the country, if its possible to declare anyone "not a risk" he's had more vetting and evidence put towards that claim than any other person in this country.

And finally for American friends who might not understand the criminal justice system in Canada. From your perspective we can be relatively soft on crime, the maximum possible sentence for any crime (first degree murder and treason) is life with no parole for 25 years, most offenders are paroled at some point after they're eligible. Even if you considered Mr Li criminally responsible for his actions it'd be second degree murder which carries a minimum ten years of parole ineligibility, the vast majority of offenders with no incidents in custody and who express deep remorse and a desire for penance as Mr Li have are paroled as soon as they are eligible, so even convicted of murder he could reasonably be out in 2 years.
All that said, we also have far less civil liberties than Americans do on a fundamental constitutional level and this applies to the justice system, if the Crown doesn't want you out you will simply never see the light of day again. You don't even have to commit a crime, judges and the RCMP can order peace bonds on citizens who they feel might commit a crime.

Sorry for double posting but after thinking some more I have one more thing I want to add, on the money and manpower note.
Why should someone who's for all intents and purposes sane and stable be taking up a bed in our overcrowded mental health system? There are countless people who could use the resources being tied up there solely to keep the public from feeling uncomfortable. People in the same situation Mr Li was in 8 years ago.

An American jury would have dropped a first degree charge on him, letter of the law be damned, and threw away the key. 25 to life here too, with capital punishment on the table in some states.

No reason to rehabilitate, since there is only treatment and no cure in this situation. No reason to treat, since he should be put down for what he did anyway.

Yes, yes, the death penalty can prove to cost more on paper, than a life sentence. Either way, who gives a shit about remorse or illness here. A fuck up like this isn't something that should see the benefit of a soft response.

Where's the incentive to stay sane anymore? Why not just flip out and decapitate people? Countries that go soft on this kind of crime benefit no one.

Anyway, he's probably being kept alive, so he can be carefully studied in a medical context. Not because anybody gives a fuck.

Yeah, this isn't manslaughter like, whoops! Got drunk and drove my car into a playground and decapitated 5 children!

But if it WAS a drunk driver more people would be on board with a life sentence, because "chose to get drunk" is part of the idea, and that scumbag was completely fucking irrensponsible about alcohol. People would howl for a drunk driving death sentence.

Oh! Okay! So, "chose to get drunk" means "chose to decapitate children"?

But asshole does the reverse, goes off his meds, and same basic outcome. Yeah... whatever.

This guy's failure mode is unprovoked psychotic mutilation. Unlike a drunk, who fails into normal mode and requires an automobile and drunk-mode activated by alcohol.

The barrier is low in each case, but one requires the will to activate, while the other is the default mode. Lock him up, even if he's old and sucks.

So it wasn't his fault. So fucking what. That should not preclude him never again seeing the light of day.

If his life is fated to forever lack choice, and thus it his a misery he can never unknow, then his life already wasted on madness will not be missed in some pit of a cell he'd scarcely understand if pills were never wasted on him.

Alright, if you won't accept an argument of justice, how about utility?

According to people who are far more able to make the determination than anyone here, the man is no longer a danger.
The fact that his illness costed someone's life does not diminish the value of his own life considering his illness is controlled.

For your concern that he is more likely to commit murder because he has done so to be valid, you would have to be far more concerned about every single non-mentally ill release as they have a higher recidivism rate.

Only slightly. Virtual computing shows us that a system can describe a replica system of itself, within itself, and require only a small amount of breathing room as an affordance layer as a control surface for proxying and listening to events that change the virtualized simulation.

Based on this, without any significant chaotic noise disrupting a scenario, and with suffient awareness of preconditions, plenty can be predicted before it happens.

Consider the inevitable collision of the Milky Way galaxy with the Andromeda galaxy. Since we know enough about both systems before the event, and since the event will be taking place at geological timescales, and since we're way in front of it, we'll probably be able to completely simulate the results long before they ever happen.

It's really about scope, proxkmity and duration of the situation that dictates what we can predict.

All except the superstitious crap, is exactly how it should have gone down, and that's what justice is.

You can treat a schizophrenic human to make them sane and not a danger to anyone around them, you can't do the same with a rabid dog, as absurd as it is that anyone even has to entertain this braindead analogy


Humans aren't dogs, numbnuts. Aside from that, there are treatments for schizophrenia, there is no treatment for rabies. Aside from THAT, utilizing the death penalty for murder guarantees that innocent people are going to be executed sooner or later, because the justice system is far from omniscient and omnibenevolent. Having the state become murderous itself isn't a good situation.

>People whom it is inherently unreasonable to take capital punitive action against due to their lack of sanity at the time of their crimes should be killed, because ME ANGRY

Yeah they have to keep taking their medication. So do diabetics. You don't say there's no treatment for diabetes because there is. Treatment is different from cure, but if the result is a reversion to normal nonviolent behavior then the problem is solved.

>It's not the disease you dipshit, it's what he DID.

He didn't do anything. His mental illness took over and someone died, but he didn't craft some plan to murder someone and then do it. That's why the law makes distinctions regarding intent. I already explained this.

>We're saying this piece of fucking shit took a human life, and "muh brain had a fart" is not a valid excuse in this situation.

Uh...yes it is. He wasn't in control. You want to punish a person for something they didn't willfully do. That's asinine, not to mention needless cruel.

>I don't care if you had proven 100% MK ultra mind control, you're getting put down, because you might do it again.

>Also psychology is one of the WEAKEST FUCKING SCIENCES out there BUB so quit acting like anything a psych says about this sack of shit matters.

First of all, fucking relax. Secondly, regardless of how real science happens in psychology, this is more of a neuroscience and psychiatry thing, and research has been done, as I and other people have said.

>He cut someones head off and ate it.

You're thinking emotionally and are caught up in the legitimate horror of the act and thus disregard the circumstances. Not a good idea when you're deciding someone's fate in a legal context.

The argument boils down to this:

The welfare of the group vs the welfare of the individual.

If keeping Vince Li away from society helps to prevent the murder/mutilation/cannibalism of another person, in the event he "casually forgets" to take this amazing DRUG to curb his natural insanity, his naturally violent insanity inherent to his nature, then I am for it.

A pitbull is aggressive and violent in its natural state. The same argument applies; not all pitbulls are dangerous! But when a pitbull maims and/or kills a person, the care the pitbull was in was wrong/inadequate.

You want to house a dangerous animal? Don't be surprised when something get's maimed/killed.

And here you demonstrate the root of your inability to understand this. In your mind, its not just about public safety, its not just about the greater wellbeing of humanity in general, its about someone being punished. Something bad happened, and to make it feel right to you, someone else has to suffer. You cannot accept the idea that a person could commit a horrifying act and not be held morally accountable, even if science, reason and the law say that said person was not responsible for the act they commited. Keep coming up with ridiculous hypothetical scenarios; you're avoiding the root of the issue, which is the fact of diminished responsibility.

Since you're into fantasy, try this one out; imagine that you had an illness that prevented you from seeing the world as it really was. Imagine that unable to tell what was real, you killed someone. Imagine that you were apprehended, the illness treated, and that only then did you learn, to your horror, the reality of what you had done.

How do you think you should be treated if that were to happen to you?
