Man kills Alabama bus driver, holds child hostage underground - CNN.com

So listening on the news this morning, they were prophetic in announcing that this man was a prepper. Almost making it a condition on events (on this news and not in the article provided) rather than just a coincidence of circumstances. Granted, there might be a correlation, however, you'd think that the media would have learned their lessons (funny, I know) from the Sandy Hook debacle being about 99% wrong on all initial reports.

Dirtbag. I hope one of our deputies gets a clean shot.

Sheriff Olsen still hasn't released the details, so we still don't know what the heck is going on. I'm betting on a family dispute of some sort. Still, no good reason to blow away the driver.

We're about to have a strong line of storms roll through. That's going to make the situation worse. I hope the dirtbag gives up, beforehand.

Im not surprised people are starting to "tip" over the edge. With the stress of life then the government compounding that stress on folks. The human condition can only take so much unless specially trained to endure stress they will "snap".

I do hope this ends well for the boy but I have a feeling we will continue to see these people that just cant handle all the stress piled on them. These things are often the result of that. But yeah we always learn more after the events so its difficult to speculate what started it all for this guy.

This should point out to anybody who thinks building a bunker is a good idea that once you are in one you are trapped.
Remember - make it too hard for the enemy to get in, and it will be too hard for you to get out.
If the kid was not in there, they could just do to the perp what the Marines did to the Japs in WWII.

Directly from CNN's very own Carol Castillo:

Police: Hostage Taker in Alabama Standoff Has 'Anti-America' Views
Posted in Anti-government, Extremist Crime by Ryan Lenz on January 30, 2013

The man who ignited a hostage standoff in southern Alabama when he shot a bus driver and took a child into an underground bunker is a "survivalist" who has ties to the anti-government movement, an official with the Dale County Sheriff's Office told Hatewatch this morning.

The gunman is identified as Jimmy Lee *****, 65, a Vietnam veteran. On Tuesday afternoon, ***** allegedly stormed into a school bus in Midland City, Ala., shooting the bus driver four times before taking a child to an underground bunker behind his home. The bus driver later died.

Tim Byrd, chief investigator with the Dale County Sheriff's Office, told Hatewatch that ***** had "anti-America" views, though he did not immediately elaborate, saying he had to attend to the pressing investigation. Police continue to communicate with ***** through a PVC pipe leading into the bunker.

Law enforcement officials said the hostage, a 6-year-old boy who has not been identified, "is okay" and had recently been delivered some needed medication. Local officials have cancelled schools, and Dale County Sheriff Wally Olson cautioned local residents to avoid the scene.

"Stay at home and pray," Olson said, according to ABC News.


By the way, they are attempting to create valid arguments to use NDAA for survivalist.

A shame!

Silly.
Midland City is chock full of mouth-breathing rednecks, but the notion of some Ametica-hating survivalist group is stupid.

Now anyone with a bunker in the backyard will be looked at with suspicion for the next few months or even years. Just as the Bushmaster .223 got a bad reputation because some nut job used it as his choice of weapons, so will bunkers.

so the child in the bunker was delivered his medications for Aspergers Syndrome and ADHD... Now we got something to move this on to the CT realm. But itleast he got his Ritalin. So much for the perp sleeping anytime soon. :idea:

Great, now we have a real life Buffalo Bill.

I noticed this didn't reach international news.
Only fodder for the agenda.
This is local to maybe regional; no reason anyone out of this area should care. Sleight of hand, the action to keep us looking away from the important action.

Hatewatch and CNN? No bias there is there? Talk about America-hating.
