From the article:
***The Southern Poverty Law Center reported on its Hatewatch blog that a chief investigator with the Dale County Sheriff’s Office identified the gunman as 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes, although Reuters could not independently verify the gunman’s identity.
Investigator Tim Byrd said Dykes’ friends and neighbors described him as a “survivalist” who did not trust the government, according to the law center blog.
“He was standoffish, didn’t socialize or have any contact with anybody,” Byrd told Hatewatch.
Dykes had not been on the law center’s radar before the shooting and standoff, and there was nothing to suggest he was a member of any hate group, said senior fellow Mark Potok.
“What it looks like is that he’s some kind of anti-government radical and survivalist,” Potok told Reuters. “And exactly what that means, we don’t know.”***
All I can say is that the SPLC is a left-wing organization that admits it doesn’t look at “extreme” left-wing hate groups on its hate watch blog. Plus, I don’t trust Reuters or any of the MSM to not include an agenda or bias in their reports.
I’m not saying that this guy has all his marbles, and isn’t a criminal. I am suggesting that the media will use this situation to further denigrate anyone who doesn’t agree with the liberal mantra of the day, in this case, “anti-government radical and survivalist”. Didn’t they run with the story of Adam Lanza’s mom being a “prepper” based only on the information from one person, a former sister-in-law?
Meantime; given his'government fears'; it is clear, at least; it is Obama's fault.
This is a 'realty horror show'. And can only hope this child; is not totally aware of how bad it is.
Where’s Dirty Harry when you need him?
And I’m not trying to make a joke of the situation. The whole bus thing makes me think of the movie, and how Harry Callahan had to say F* the PC establishment to get the job done.
The pipe they use to lower the autism drugs and communicate to kidnapper Jimmy Lee Dykes is the key. With it they can put in a microphone that will pick up sleeping sounds. When it is obvious that Dykes is sleeping, they can send in a gas like Sevoflurane to put him in a deeper sleep. Then, they can breach the bunker and rescue the boy.
Enough gas to put him to sleep would kill the boy.
Correct. Believe it or not, but just leaving him alone with 4-5 folks for around-the-clock surveillance would probably be the most appropriate course of action to take. If he comes out, let him move about. Where is he going to go? I guarantee you he has no desire to go anywhere else but his property.
He'll have to do something about water, food, sewage, etc. and will have to come out. He's going to start having some feelings of remorse, if it doesn't already. Sooner or later, he's going to have to let the little boy go outside and will probably decide to just let him go. No need for a entire army there. They really want this guy alive to see what makes him tick, because there are many others just like him.
thank you! i couldn’t seem to find it on any article i looked at.
You’re welcome. Whenever you need a picture, try google images.
“Anti-Government Views” seems to be the keywords they have decided on in order to “demonstrate he is a “Republican”. They don’t seem to recall that it was the Leftists that really got the whole anti-government ball rolling and that “patriots” like the Una-bomber and others push the movement way to the Left as far as history goes.
BO does stink.
Probably just some SWAT guys. Or FBI HRT. Don’t rely on any reporter to know anything about the military although these days it is hard to tell.
Have they considered some kind of gas bomb down that talking tube they have? This is crazy.
Is that really true of all gases?
How about enough to put the boy to sleep and disorient the man?
If this guy is extremely prepared for adverse conditions, he may already have a gas mask with him.
It is not Jimmy Lee Dykes.
Hmmm, Jimmy Lee must have a picture somewhere.
Sorry, my internets were wrong.
