So I think you almost have to do something other than to wait for him to kill the kid and them himself.
Damn , we can put a man on the moon but can't get a kid out a bunker.
This "exclusive" daily mail article provides lots of details: EXCLUSIVE: Alabama 'survivalist killer' Jimmy Lee Dykes wants a reporter sent into his bunker to tell his story in exchange for releasing his 5-year-old hostage | Mail Online. Clearly it has to be taken with a grain of salt, but some of it seems probable. Among other things, it says that Hostage negotiators are now communicating with Dykes via a ‘throw phone.' and that the door is believed to be booby traped.
The phone would seem to indicate that the pipe is not filtered.
It is day 5 of the holding of the young 5 yr old boy.
Perhaps the police have developed some kind of rapport with the murderer. They can hear the kid crying for his parents and that is a good sign he is still alive.
Am hoping they can gain his trust and coax him to come out with the boy.
So this is a prime example of someone with a gun who shouldn't had one. How do we honestly say who fits that classification. He was reported to patrol his property at night with a flashlight and rifle walking from corner to corner.
Someone that paranoia suggest instability.
Heard a news report that said the shooter was a survivalist and anti-government. Now there is a surprise!

Sheriff thanks suspect for taking care of boy - Yahoo! News
Odd comments to be making by the Sheriff - I trust that there is some underlying logic here - anything....MIDLAND CITY, Ala. (AP) — Authorities said Saturday that they still have an open line of communication with an Alabama man accused of abducting a 5-year-old boy and holding him hostage in a bunker, and they thanked the suspect for taking care of the child as the standoff marked its fifth day.
Dale County Sheriff Wally Olson said in a briefing with reporters that Jimmy Lee Dykes has told them he has blankets and an electric heater in the bunker. Olson said Dykes has allowed authorities to deliver coloring books, medication and toys for the boy.
"I want to thank him for taking care of our boy," Olson said. "That's very important."
