    Doesn't seem odd to me, since the safety and health of 5 year old Ethan is of paramount concern at this point.

    Of course he is being nice to the POS keeping a scared 5 yr old boy in a bunker. But you know damn well that Sheriff would like to knock that SOB to the ground and then grind his heel of his boot over the perp's testicles.

    I think this ties into them knowing that he has a TV. It shows him gratitude and that they are not trying to slander or discredit him. He is anti-government and wants to use this to express his views. Showing his good actions and not trying to slander him makes him think he is winning and buys time.

    Even if the kid comes out physically unharmed, this guy needs to be put to death. Furthermore, the parents should have the honors. If it was my son, I wouldn't hesitate on the opportunity to gut the SOB.

    I don't see nothing wrong with that at all. This little 5 year old boy has entered 6 days of being scared out of his wits.

    What I don't understand is that the guy has to sleep sometime in those 6 days. It would make sense that would be the time to work on the outside of the bunker to take it. They probably are too but being very careful.

    What a pathetic loser using a little 5 yr old kid to bring attention to your talk radio pity parade .

    Well, it's obvious to me this crazy man wants the attention. Otherwise he would have holed himself up a long time ago. Instead, he shoots a bus driver on purpose, knowing the police will be involved, and takes a child hostage to ensure he keeps getting the attention.

    I say the authorities should clear out the area. Set up a sniper in the distance. Make no commotion, do not entertain this man any further. He will eventually come out and then pull the trigger on him.

    Case closed.

    Law enforcement officers cannot shoot him if he comes out in peace. While it is easy to say that this case calls for an exception, that would be a terrible precedent to set. Also, he is mentally unstable and apparently hates the government. He is just as likely, if not more likely to decide that he doesn't want to be arrested and take his own life and the boy's, so negotiations have to continue.

    It also reminds the suspect that the boy is a human being with people outside that care about him. It is harder to kill a human being than an object.

    More information: Official: Hostage standoff ends with child safe, kidnapper dead - CNN.com
    Midland City, Alabama (CNN) -- A 5-year-old child abducted from an Alabama school bus six days ago is safe and his kidnapper is dead, according to a law enforcement official.
    The child appeared to be OK emerging from the ordeal Monday afternoon, the official said. Alabama state Rep. Steve Clouse told CNN that the boy was taken to a hospital in nearby Dothan.
    One neighbor said he was outside when he was startled by the sound of an explosion.
    "I head a big boom and then ... I believe I heard rifle shots," said Bryon Martin, who owns a home near the bunker where the boy had been held since Tuesday.
    It was a loud noise that "made me jump off the ground," he said.
    Two ambulances left the scene shortly before 4 p.m. (5 p.m. ET).
    Last Tuesday, policae say, Jimmy Lee Dykes boarded a Dale County school bus and demanded the driver hand over two children.
    Sounds like they went in.
