Alabama hostage situation enters 3rd day

14 posts in this topic

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.

    • when I was in TN in the Navy I was in a 4 man room and I was the senior person (by like 2 weeks) so I had to present the room for inspection Monday morning. Sunday night the place was a pit so I told everyone that we had to get it cleaned up. I was accused of being a racist by one of the black guys in the room because I was telling them what to do. I then realized that racism is a way for stupid lazy people to reason away doing things they should be doing and get other people to do them instead.
    • New Podcast is out.  Jourdan Rodrigue stops by to discuss Olsen, the rookies, more. I think you will enjoy the episode, she really knows her stuff. You should also subscribe to her "Three and Out" podcast on itunes and everywhere else.    Episode available on all your podcast apps, just search for Carolina Huddle  or just listen here. 
    • I'm somewhat concerned over Cam's shoulder - but the LB group really has me worried. Luke's concussion really has me freaked out still... and I pray that TD's ACL continues to be strong.
