So ya wanna go Galt? Well okay then!
 
2013-02-04 05:04:57 PM
The kid's OK apparently, and the guy is dead.
 
2013-02-04 05:05:26 PM
I hope he offed himself, and left the kid alone, but things like this usually don't work out like that...
 
2013-02-04 05:05:37 PM
herp. derp.
 
2013-02-04 05:06:05 PM
So, there is/was a hostage situation in Georgia as well as in Alabama?  And both in cities named Midland?  Weird...

yeah because watching some nutjob that kidnapped you off himself would be not at all traumatic.
 
2013-02-04 05:06:26 PM
The article says Midland City, which I believe is in Alabama.
 
2013-02-04 05:06:32 PM
Kids O.K.? Fantastic!
 
2013-02-04 05:06:35 PM
I read the kid is safe and Dykes is dead.

Midland, Alabama.. not Georgia.

Word around Alabama is the kid ok and the guy's dead.

I am really hoping this is true.

Dead goblin and living kid.  It's a good day.

Guess who came and took his guns. And they weren't even the military.

From what I've heard from others, it's happening at other sites too.

They do all blur together, like the "food" at Golden Corral.

The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a bad guy with a gun.
 
2013-02-04 05:11:00 PM
This wouldn't have happened if the 5 year old was armed.
 
2013-02-04 05:11:16 PM
That kid is going to need a lot of consoling in the years to come.
 
2013-02-04 05:11:16 PM
Thank god the kid is ok!  As for the kindnapper, well bye
 
2013-02-04 05:11:42 PM
So the kid is okay?  I hoped it would work out for the kid.

/thought it would end up tragic
 
2013-02-04 05:12:10 PM
That poor kid is going to have a heaping dose of Stockholm Syndrome to work through. That is a hell of a thing to lay on a little kid with Aspergers and ADHD.

It's kinda funny how people who spend so much time preparing for a violent last stand with the government seem so unorganized when it actually goes down. (hmm funny, not ha ha funny)

Update:

Suspect is dead, child is OK
 
2013-02-04 05:12:29 PM

AspectRatio: The kid's OK apparently, and the guy is dead.


Can't wait to hear how they pulled this off.

I don't think he was all that kind.

Oh my god.
This is so much better than I thought it would end.
Wow.
I'm so glad to hear that the boy is okay.

Earguy: AspectRatio: The kid's OK apparently, and the guy is dead.

My guess is that he ate a bullet, and on hearing a gunshot they blew the doors probably expecting the worst but delighted to find out that the kid was safe.
 
2013-02-04 05:14:09 PM

Ow! That was my feelings!: Link


FTA: Authorities said 65-year-old Jim Dykes killed 66-year-old Charles Albert Poland Jr. before escaping with the kindergartener, who has Asperger's syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

Wouldn't this have driven the man mad? The kid couldn't sit still and was clumsy about it. Maybe the kid is a hero.

ordinarysteve: That kid is going to need a lot of consoling in the years to come.


Yep. Not only was he kidnapped, but he saw his kidnapper murder the bus driver. Lots and lots of counseling in this poor kid's future.

Magnanimous_J: It's kinda funny how people who spend so much time preparing for a violent last stand with the government seem so unorganized when it actually goes down. (hmm funny, not ha ha funny)


Also kind of funny how they prove themselves to be right.

See!  Government out to get me!

Like the most disturbing episode of Animaniacs ever...
 
2013-02-04 05:15:36 PM
LOL, Local news is saying he got out and asked for Cheez-its and Hot Wheels.
 
2013-02-04 05:15:52 PM
Tuned in just in time to get some nice medical facts about the kid. Not sure where I got the idea that peoples' healh issue were private.

Also, I got some nice dirty laundry about the -- apparently -- dead guy.

As a father I'd rather my kid be traumatized instead of dead.  You can do something about the trauma.  Dead, not so much.
 
2013-02-04 05:16:49 PM
The moment in this whole case that ripped my heart out, was the parents going on TV, thanking the nutcase for "taking care" of their son.  I understand the strategy behind it, but I'd have  a hard time delivering those lines without launching into a profane tirade.

I like the idea of "kindnapping." Like somebody grabs you up, takes you to Vegas, and plies you with cheap whores and expensive liquor for a couple of days before releasing you at your local airport.

kvinesknows: jojostan: I hope he offed himself, and left the kid alone, but things like this usually don't work out like that...

yeah because watching some nutjob that kidnapped you off himself would be not at all traumatic.


This is my fear... I hope the kid is okay and also not forever traumatized.  :(

Asperger's and ADD/hyper? I'd have killed myself within the first 2 hours.

Especially after having to spend days with him in what amounts to a walk-in closet.  With no bathroom.
