Robson Street Stabbing?
On my way home tonight there was a police cordon on Robson Street just below Thurlow (1 block from my apartment). There was a large number of police officers (6+ cars worth), along with 2 ambulances, a stopped Robson city bus, and a ton of curious onlookers.
The policeman I asked wouldn't give me any information about what had happened. The only info I got came from onlookers, who said that somebody had gotten stabbed (possibly had their throat slit). 2 different stories were going around: that a bus driver had been stabbed, or that it was a homeless guy that got stabbed.
I walked by a little after 9 PM. The police were fully set up by then, so I imagine the action took place some time before then.

The confusion about it happening to a bus driver, rather than the fourth homeless man stabbed by the same suspect, was probably because the homeless guy was attempting to board the bus when his throat was slashed.
The strange part is the guy thinks he is doing the city a favour by cleaning it up.
| Whoa. Take care of yourself, now.|
| Wow. that is so...vile...and so ...sad.|
