    It's nice to see that our law enforcement can be badass like the Israelis. I hope the child is relatively ok, physical aside.

    I don't get how a boom makes people nearby in the neighborhood (?) jump and the boy is not affected. The boy had to be out or clear to breach with ear protection when then the thump occured?

    Thank God he's ok.

    I have issue with law enforcement claiming they waited to strike only when they thought the child's life was in danger becaue they thought they saw a firearm.

    Ok - maybe this is just poor HORRID wording of the press. . . but the dude was known to be armed. He shot and killed the bus driver. . . the child was in danger every single second of every day.

    Poor wording - I know the real issue was that they needed to be sure that once they struck they'd get him out of the way and too the child without causing further harm.

    thank goodness they were able to save this child. I suspect this man may have had a mental disease that went untreated or may never have been diagnosed. More money has to be spent in finding and treating people who have mental issues and if nothing can be done for them they have to be locked up in institutions until they no longer pose a threat to themselves or others. This however has to be done with great care and oversight to make sure no-one is locked up in this kind of institution for things other than mental health issues.

    One of the news stories I read said that negotiations had begun to break down and they feared he might kill the boy and himself. That's when they decided to enter the compound. Its sounds to me like they did exactly what was in the little boy's best interest as the situation unfolded. And we can hardly complain about the outcome!

    I say job well done to those involved!

    I agree - they tried to do it to ensure his safety during the process but I don't think things were more imminent than they already were - it was already at a level 10 from the beginning. It's disingenuous to suggest that - up until then - he was 'fine'

    Regardless - his disgusting pig ass perversion of nature is ****ing dead.

    I think they were in a better position to judge risk to little Ethan than were we. I will not second guess them based on what little information has been released.

    No - I'm not questioning police actions, etc . . . I'm confused by the citing of a 'firearm being present' as a reason - again, I think it'd just be a poor choice of words from journalists on this issue - but we knew the guy was armed and had already proven to be a notable threat.

    It's not the police stating this - it's journalism really wording this just horribly wrong. . that's what I'm commenting on. Journalism is failiing a bit, here.

    Why are we pretending that this is not a right wing anti-government whack job high on ideology and right wing rhetoric?

    That may be. What I read was that negotiations had begun to break down. Which would have indicated more risk to the child. That's when they decided to go in, at least according to the news story I read.

    That makes perfect sense to me as far as reasoning on their part.
