Sadly, shooting sprees are popular all over the world... but what about stabbing sprees? These disturbing true stories of insane knife-wielding maniacs take place anywhere, from D.C. sidewalks, to British shopping centers, to the streets of Tokyo. Senseless stabbing attacks seem to happen in broad daylight, with adults and children witnessing the massacres, if not being victims to them. Whether it's terrorism or psychosis (although perhaps the former is impossible without the latter), this list of crazy public knife attacks will shock you.
Passer-bys are not immune to these murderous maniacs, as the knife wielders who perpetrated the crimes on this list will stab pedestrians at random. That's what's so scary about these chilling tales; there is no rhyme nor reason to the fatal stabbings, no pattern to speak of - and the sheer randomness of them is terrifying. Take the Canadian beheading on a Greyhound bus ride. Or the slashing at a Wal-Mart in Texas. How about the Hollywood Walk of Fame? And a stabbing spree at a Target? You ain't seen nothin' yet.Collection Photo: NY Daily News
