Dixon Cider: So... just more of the same?Shame subby... SHAME!!!
AverageAmericanGuy: So no body brought up. Boy is safe. Antigun sentiment increased sharply.This play acting worked out great. Lucky for the agents, the press furor died down long enough to let them concoct the endgame story without much scrutiny.
MindStalker: I just wish they had used a drone. There would be people out there that celebrated that use in this situation, while decrying its use in other countries in similar situations. The cognitive dissidence would be been spectacular.
positronica: My guess is the FBI somehow got a camera down inside. They probably drilled down through the earth next to the bunker real slow so as to not make noise and then found a seam in the buried shipping container to feed the camera into. I've also heard in other stories that the FBI build a duplicate bunker on their own so that they could better plan entry strategies. Once they had a camera in place and had studied the layout, and once they felt negotiations were falling apart, they just watched until both the guy and the kid were in the optimum positions for an entry, and then they went for it.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: if the kid is still rocking back and forth in a corner somewhere screaming "NO LOUD NOISES! NO LOUD NOISES! NO LOUD NOISES!"
banandar123: Not only is this article from like 27 hours ago, but there's also nothing else to really learn about the situation.1. Guy kills bus driver.2. Guy kidnaps kid, holes up in a bunker.3. Cops try to negotiate for almost a week.4. Cops storm bunker, kill guy, rescue boy.Anything beyond these 4 points is just the media trying to suck ratings out of this story as much as they can.Then again, it would be interesting to know more about the investigation, such as the guy's demands, motives, etc., and perhaps an update on the boy's mental state in a few weeks/months. But until those facts surface, the media should just shut the fark up./end rant.
