I'm glad we had a greenlit thread for this detailed breakdown of how SWAT took this guy down.

I figure this is a good place for me to give you my recipe for Ratatouille:

How it went down:

FBI Chief: "This is going on six days and we're in Alabama. Let's shoot this guy in the face and go get some Olive Garden. We'll say he was unravelling."

IF only there was some Asian news agency that could make wildly inaccurate and wildly entertaining CGI recreations of events like this.

Wow, this kind of reporting seems to be catching. Here is a story explaining the reason that power stopped getting relayed to the Super Bowl. It turns out that what happened is that the relay device stopped working.

FarkingReading: Here's a new detail I didn't know before: The closest thing he had to a friend was the bus driver that he killed. The bus driver delivered a "gift of eggs and jam to Dykes' trailer several days before the incident, as a thank you for Dykes' work shoveling a narrow road so that Poland could make a three-point turn on his bus route."

Also, the two guys argued for quite a while on the bus over whether or not Dykes could take the boy, and then Dykes killed him. I didn't realize it was a drawn-out argument.

As if we needed any more evidence as to what a HUUUUUGE butthole Dykes was.

Excellent headline, subby.  Very witty and well thought out.

Wow, that explains everything.  I have absolutely zero interest in knowing anything else about this.  Thanks, subby

banandar123: Hobodeluxe: I'll bet the camera(s) they has in there were probably in the toys he allowed the kid to have. really small and with 360 deg field of view.

I was thinking something similar to this. They did say that they wouldn't elaborate on the method used to place the cameras in there, so it gives me a feeling it was something a little sneakier than simply lowering a camera down the PVC pipe. So yeah, out of the items known to have been lowered into the bunker, the toys would seem like the best medium for the job.

"Don't you ever laugh as the hearse goes by,For you may be the next one to die. They wrap you up in a big white sheet From your head down to your feet. They put you in a big black box

And cover you up with dirt and rocks. All goes well for about a week, Then your coffin begins to leak. The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, The worms play pinochle in your snout,

They eat your eyes, they eat your nose, They eat the jelly between your toes. A big green worm with rolling eyes Crawls in your stomach and out your eyes. Your stomach turns a slimy green,
And pus pours out like whipping cream. You'll spread it on a slice of bread, And this is what you eat when you are dead."

someonelse: Did I misread that, or did it say that the guy's body is still down there? Because, gross.

Reading comprehenshun, apparently you have that....

"Dale County Coroner Woodrow Hilboldt says he had not been able to confirm exactly how Dykes died because the man's body had remained in the bunker. An autopsy is to be conducted in Montgomery once the body is removed."

And the article is dated yesterday and the ordeal was over Monday afternoon so it's been about 50 to 75 hours by now. YUMMY!!!!!

From another article:

"FBI special agents were positioned near the entrance of the bunker and negotiators were able to convince Dykes to approach the bunker door. FBI agents used two explosions to gain entry into the bunker"

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.
