Another idiot with a gun

Another idiot with a gun
This time in Alabama. A law abiding citizen afraid of the government takes a child off a school bus and holds him hostage in his survivalist bunker.

As reported at TPM:

Quote:According to an official in the Dale County, Ala. sheriff’s department, the man who took a child hostage after shooting a bus driver on Tuesday is a “survivalist” with “anti-America” views.

“His friends and his neighbors stated that he did not trust the government, that he was a Vietnam vet, and that he had PTSD,” Tim Byrd, chief investigator with the Dale County Sheriff’s Department, told The Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch blog on Wednesday. “He was standoffish, didn’t socialize or have any contact with anybody. He was a survivalist type.”

[....]

Authorities have not, however, officially confirmed the hostage situation or the name of the suspect, which has widely been reported as Jimmy Lee Dykes. Dykes reportedly boarded the bus on Tuesday and shot Poland several times, then took a 6-year-old boy from the bus to a bunker near Dykes’ home, where they have remained.

According to al.com, authorities have been negotiating with Dykes through a PVC pipe leading into the bunker. The 6-year-old boy is reportedly autistic, and requires medication, which has been delivered. Dykes reportedly has no ties to the boy. Sources also told al.com that Dykes is looking for attention to “air his grievances.”

Another case of stochastic terrorism.

RE: Another idiot with a gun
Funny how these "anti-American" idiots used to be the ones waving the flag and calling themselves "patriots".
What could have happened to them to make them think this way? Could it be Fauxnews and RW radio bloviators telling them to be afraid, be very afraid, of the black man in the White House???

RE: Another idiot with a gun
I'd love to know what they think is so patriotic about shooting a bus driver and kidnapping a 6 year old child?

They are bullies and they have this mistaken notion that "Obummer" is going to take their guns away. Well, in this case, the guy should have lost his gun!

I hope they get this settled soon, and rescue that poor little boy.
