Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb

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.
Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.
It's all over now....
The boy is safe....Dykes is dead.

Sounds like they went in.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.
