This Day in Failure: July 30

2008: Vince Weiguang Li, 40, savagely attacks fellow bus passenger Tim McLean Jr., 22, aboard a Greyhound bus en route from Edmonton to Winnipeg. Li stabs McLean dozens of times before decapitating, carving up, and allegedly eating some of his victim’s body parts. In the aftermath of the incident, Greyhound scrambles to terminate a national advertising campaign that promotes Greyhound as a peaceful, stress-free way to travel. The campaign features ads with the tag line: There’s a reason you've never heard of ‘bus rage.’

1996: The federal government announces that Richard Jewell is the prime suspect in the bombing that took place three days earlier at Olympic Centennial Park in Atlanta, Georgia. Jewell is later cleared of any involvement.

1971: All Nippon Airways Flight 58 collides in mid-air with an F-86 fighter over the Japanese Alps, killing all 162 people aboard the Boeing 727. The pilot of the military jet was able to eject and parachute to safety; he was later charged with involuntary manslaughter, but acquitted at trial.
