    Woman Beheaded

    Well, the post says it all.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...e-machete.html

    I myself have an apartment at the HG Christian Sur which is 5 minutes walking straight up that road, I personally have been in that "supermarket" where the attack has happened and frankly it was an accident waiting to happen, seeing as they have rather large swords, machete's and knifes all on display in the store which could easily have been taken. However it was very good for things like can openers and bottle openers, The store is massive by the way it goes underneath that whole block.

    My Parents Aged (70 & 73) where currently out there at the time where it happened the casually went down to the main supermarket which from where the attack happened is up the road for a minute turn left and walk for 10 minutes and you will arrive at Hyper Trebol, they then walked back before mid day, and the strange thing is they hadn't heard anything about it until they went into a restaurant later that day at night.

    What a tragedy. But, I'm not sure how you say it was "an accident waiting to happen". The attacker was a homeless man with a criminal record recently released from a psychiatric hospital who stalked the victim days before the attack... the psycho could have used anything.

    Yeh true, but no one with any sense would leave a machete out on display and eye level. I mean this is a super market, it wouldn't happen in the UK.

    Wow, that is just horrible. It's stories like this that make me avoid homeless people when I come across them.

    That's a pretty sad statement and unfortunate how full of prejudice it is.

    It's a sad statement, but it is definitely not full of prejudice. Being a single young woman in a large-ish city, I have to watch out for my safety. That means walking on the other side of the street when I see someone walking around muttering to themselves. Don't get me wrong, I've had several nice conversations with homeless people. I've even found out one nice man's life story.

    It's not full of prejudice, but thank you for assuming so.

    The point is Homeless or Not. You have to watch yourself.

    Eh, it's all relative I've had lots of glowing conversations with the homeless in and around Toronto, Vancouver & everywhere in between. Never did I feel even a bit unsafe.

    However, I've had conversations with folks who've had a bit to drink, or are higher than kites, and I've feared for my life -- even had people swing at me, threaten me, and intend to cause me all kinds of bodily harm.

    Drug use & addictions may be higher or more prominent among the homeless, but they're far from mentally unstable 24/7 like some would assume. I've got my moments too

    LOL so thats the real picture of Canada.

    Its same all over the world with home less people.

    Here in India there is a guy nicknamed "ripper" who has killed many people during the night who sleep on the streets/outside shops with stones hitting on the head. He hasnt been caught by police yet. A mystery unsolved.

    Let me help you out with the definition of prejudice....

    an unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason.

    Both of my parents were homeless - guess I've got a bit of a different viewpoint than needing to walk on the other side of the street or the need to avoid contact with the homeless.

    I've worked with the homeless since I was a young kid. If you take the time, you'll find out that a large majority of them (like any sub group of our population) are good people. They're husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, grandparents and someone kid, just like you.

    Yes, This Guy belongs to Cochin. So there are very few beggars in this city and it is rather a clean city compared to many others.

    Probably killing scares beggars out.

    The police, inspite of constant effort have failed for a number of years to catch him yet.

    Night is scarry in this place. In the morning you will find a blood covered dead body ouside some shop. At times there are a large number of killings in nearby days.

    The killing style is the same, he uses a single stone and throws at the head of the victim, the time is usually night close to early morning.

    Prejudice or not, statistically it can be proven homeless people has problems. Just as racial/culture/sex profiling do work but not politically correct.

    Are you saying the same percentage of homeless people have mental problems as non-homeless people? It's common sense. The crazier you are, the less likely you are to hold down a job and pay rent. It might sound "mean" but it's true.

    Even I would agree with this. There are many people who try to help others out there, being homeless themselves.

    Yes, there are homeless people who are much more giving than the rich.

    I once got astonished when homeless street people offered us roasted birds.

    My theory as to why some geniuses like Nikolai Tesla end up psychotic without it being caused by “medication” is because they “don’t know anything”, on the forefront of knowledge, rationalizing based on the unknown. Lesser intelligence knows everything already within their own environment, within which they need not look further.

    50% of the US population is on one or more kind of pharmaceutical, 10% of the US population is on antidepressants.

    I also have on several occasions, my main route back from the centre of town. When did you go, things have changed since then. They have done some really nice work to the beach front 3 years ago.

    Unbelievable.
    I know you don't understand the ignorance of this statement and surely don't comprehend the prejudice.
    That is fine. Ignorance is bliss.

    Question.
    How do you know which are homeless and which are not?
    How do you know that the guy you just passed who is wearing a suit is not a wife beater or serial killer?

    Some of the profoundly ignorant in this thread are making all sorts of wild claims about who is mentally unstable by probability etc.
    So many stereotypes and so many accusations and SO much ignorance.

    So little facts.

    Amazing.

    It's a tragedy that this woman died. It's as much a tragedy that her death spawns so much bigotry and ignorance.

    What's with the accusations of ignorance? Do you know why most stereotypes start? Because they have a basis in reality.

    Besides, when people say they will avoid homeless people, they probably just mean they will avoid the ones that look crazy to them. You feel free to go ahead and interview everyone who walks past you on the street. Most people don't have the time so they make assumptions based on probability.

    Nobody said all homeless people were serial killers. Nobody said all non-homeless people weren't serial killers.

    Well Ashley Limestone chooses to be extra cautious and just avoid all homeless people, that's not ignorant that's just more careful. Ignorant is choosing to ignore the laws of probability just to act like you're on a higher moral ground than everybody who doesn't.

    Yeah Ashley Limestone chooses to be on the safer side with strangers. That's fine but I believe that even the strangers who are white collared and rich are even more to be feared.
