Alabama hostage situation enters 3rd day

The hostage situation in Midland City, Ala., is approaching its third day with no new developments.

“We really don’t have a whole lot to add. I hate to tell you that, but that’s the way it is,” said Dale County Sheriff Wally Olson at a morning news conference in which he refused to answer questions about the 5-year-old kidnapped from a school bus Tuesday afternoon or the 65-year-old man holding him.

That man, Jimmy Lee Dykes, reportedlystopped a school bus on a dirt road about 3:35 p.m., shooting the driver four times with a pistol before seizing a random kindergartner and returning to an underground bunker on his property.

I hope the kid gets out OK and then they torture this crazy old fug for a few days. If you flip out don't take children with you.

I read elsewhere that the poor kid fainted and that is why the man took him. What a nightmare for both the kids and parents.

I do wonder if perhaps they could put some kind of knockout gas into the bunder thru the air pipe, maybe while the guy is asleep.

A gunman holding a 5-year-old boy hostage in an underground bunker in rural Alabama was killed on Monday and the child was plucked to safety without injury, a local law enforcement official said.
