    This would be good news, glad they boy is alright. Also glad taxpayers will not have to foot this low life captors stay in prison.

    Wonder if the captor committed suicide or was shot by a swat team by one of them evil automatic weapons, you know one of them weapons that I wish that school bus driver would have been packing…..

    So sorry that the little kid had to go through that ordeal.

  • OldSailor

    That is the best news I’ve heard today. Thank you God for helping the authorities with this rescue.

  • American Woman

    Thank God, the little boy survived.

    Sadly, Hadiya Pendleton, a lovely and talented 15 year old girl was not so fortunate this year.

    She lived in Chicago with some of the tightest gun control laws in the nation, but those laws can’t seem to keep guns out of the hands of criminals (because criminals have no respect for the law).

    The 15-year-old girl had performed in President Barack Obama’s inauguration festivities and was killed in a Chicago park as she talked with friends.

    She was Chicago’s 42nd slaying in 2013, a part of Chicago’s bloodiest January in more than a decade.

    There were more than 500 homicides in Chicago in 2012.

    Answered prayer for the boy’s safety. Wonder why this guy was running loose in the first place considering all the bizarre and dangerous behavior he had been exhibiting for some time. Whatever happened to preventing tragedies? Why do we always have to react?

    truly heart-wrenching, as 5 year old was also Austistic.. :-(

    of course Obama is on spewing the ruse about assault weapons
    and making tougher gun laws.. :roll: and not one word about Mental
    Illness yet again.. *sigh*

    [Suicide, Violence Link Hidden by Big Pharma

    [In 2005, it was found that link between Prozac and suicidal behavior
    was kept a secret. The BBC even reported in as early as the year 2000
    that Prozac ‘led to suicide’. Oftentimes killers will end their own lives after
    shootings, or attempt to force the cops to kill them. This is essentially a
    form of suicide with a mixture of murderous tendencies.

    If Prozac can drive someone to suicide, could it also drive someone to
    end someone else’s life? Paxil, an anti-depressant drug, was found to
    be linked to violent behavior in 2006. The link incited multiple lawsuits,
    and brings up questions as to whether or not similar drugs have the
    same effects. Anti-depressants have horrible side effects, but about
    the even more hardcore drugs, such as the drugs that many of the
    other killers were taking? These psychotropics may have been the
    final straw in pushing Lanza and others over the edge, the final push
    that they needed to go through with the horrendous act.]

    Top psychiatrist: Meds behind school massacres

    [Psychotropic drugs “prescribed for school
    children cause violent behavior,” Healy stated.

    The drugs are widely used in the U.S. as antidepressants by doctors
    working in the mental health field and increasingly by primary care
    doctors, he noted.

    Healey insisted the problem today is that doctors working with schools
    to control the behavior of children are inclined to prescribe SSRI drugs
    without serious consideration of adverse consequences.

    “The pharmaceutical companies made these drugs with the idea of
    making money,” he said. “There’s a wide range of problems when it
    comes to looking at these drugs for children. Very few children have
    serious problems that warrant treatment with pills that have the risks
    SSRI drugs have.”]

    If the now dead gunman can be even peripherally linked (or a link fabricated and spun by the American Pravda propaganda complex) to Republicans/Conservatives/the NRA/etc. then you can bet your bottom dollar the mental illness angle will be trotted out faster than Warp 12.

  • FurryGuy

    To be perfectly honest I am really surprised, gobsmacked even, the background affiliations this guy had haven’t come up yet in media reports.

    Unless he was so strongly Leftist/Prog/Lib that the American Pravda propaganda complex is working overtime to non-person his associations from the record, or simply finding as big a hole to bury them.

  • Llarry

    The FBI HRT made the rescue. Think about that. They entered a bunker by blowing it open, stormed it, and killed the kidnapper without harming the child. To have that much skill requires high-tech weapons and endless training.

    That’s why I don’t get upset when I see government agents training with guns and armored vehicles. The vast majority of them are there to protect us against the criminals of the world.

  • Maudie N Mandeville

    Boy, Dykes looks and sounds EXACTLY like a filthy rich greedy Republican. First of all, he’s a murderer as are all the Republican black murderers in Detroit, Chicago, Wash DC, Compton and New Orleans. Second, he was arrested for smoking El ropo (dead give away, just like all those Republican OWSer’s). Thirdly, he’s threatened to shoot children just like all those pro-life Republicans. Fourthly, he has no wife and is estranged from his only daughter just like all those pro-family zero-population Republicans who squeal about ‘marriage’ and overpopulating the earth.

    Case closed! This guy went door to door for Romney on his bicycle and a white shirt.

  • Patty

    How was he killed.

    and then this:
    The agent said negotiations with Dykes “deteriorated” in the past 24 hours.

    “Mr. Dykes was observed holding a gun,” Richardson said. “At this point, the FBI agents, fearing the child was in imminent danger, entered the bunker and rescued the child.”

    The boy, identified only as Ethan, “appears physically unharmed” and is being treated at a hospital, authorities said.


    the FBI agents, fearing the child was in imminent danger, WOW, the boy WAS in Imminent danger a Week ago.
