Goddmnit. There's a 5YO being held in a bunker in South Alabama and no one seems to give a shit

Some gun lover stole a kid off of a school bus (he wanted two but the bus driver gave his life to save his charges) and ran to a bunker. The gun lover had a bunker and was one of these Randian survivalists and had had previously had many run in's with law enforcement.

I guess not enough run in's as it might take to question the idea that the guy shouldn't be around sharp objects... Fuck it with his guns thats CONSTITUTIONAL by god...

1. What do you mean

'no one seems to give a shit'?


I am not at all surprised that it was one of those survivalist people.

2. It's been all over the news

since the day it happened. It's on the CNN and CBS front page, along with the front page of the NY Times today and I saw it on the front page of the Hartford Courant today.

4. of course people care. I don't know where you get the idea that they don't.

and by the way, an ADA in TX was gunned down today. He's dead. And in Atlanta a 14 year old school kid was shot in the head in school. He's in the hospital.

One can care without being hysterical.

24. Because there aren't 100 OP threads on it here?

Just a guess. We can read the news. We're concerned.

5. what do you want us to do?

 

I hate to do cold reality, but terrible and horrible things happen every day, and lots more in foreign countries too. Just recently, a fire in a nightclub in Brazil killed hundreds of young people. What are we supposed to do, run around in a panic every time something like this happens? It is all a bit overwhelming when you consider the tragic things that happen all the time, all over the world.

Get guns off the fucking streets.

It seems you spend a lot of time in the "cooking and baking" forum here.

You know what that means? I'm gonna ask for fresh cookies.

10. easy to say

 

not so easy to do. I want strong gun control measures too, but even if we got it, would it it stop all the evil that runs rampant, such as kidnappings of kids? I don't think so, unfortunately.

Even the best gun control measures aren't going to stop all the evil, robberries, beatings...

20. I'm with you. I lost a family member to gun violence so I'm incredibly angry and upset

and this last turn of events is just horrifying. You hear about kidnapped kids being murdered by their (male) kidnappers and so often the outcome is the worst possible.

This is just getting worse and worse. We are all being held hostage by political and criminal insanity...

19. That's right. No one on DU is pushing for gun control.

We're all 2nd amendment absolutists and gun nuts here, you sure have us pegged.

Listen, I understand your frustration, but it helps to think a little bit before posting.

21. I think the folks in Alabama are probably giving 'a shit' .

In 1976 26 kids and their driver were held hostage in an underground bunker in Chowchilla CA. The driver and kids escaped themselves. Great effort was made to find them.
Why do you claim no one is trying to get this child out of danger? I would think it would be awful for his parents to read that 'no one gives a shit'.

23. Sometimes subtle media coverage is better than a cast of thousands in the MSM hyping it

 

and creating copycats. They take something like this that is a tragedy and hype it for one reason only.....eyeballs and corporate profits.

When you combine media hype with those who are disturbed with certain untreated mental illness you end up with more of the same. Everything I've read about this individual said that he was a known threat to the community, but nothing could or was done.

There are people that common sense tells us represent a ticking time bomb and there isn't much that can be done. I have strong mixed emotions on it. The ACLU fought to keep these people on the street.

Speaking of firearm deaths in America....just how many firearm deaths do you think are portrayed annually by Hollywood in their effort for more profits?

25. We've been following it as close as we can in Dallas.

I was under the assumption that they were doing high-level negotiations with the guy. I can see why they are trying to keep the press out.

29. If only he were in a well or a runaway baloon.

 

Then there would be coverage. Unfortunately he is being held by a deranged madman in a bunker in the deep South. Nothing to see here from the networks. Maybe if his name were Jean Benet?

32. Has it even occurred to you that law enforcement has asked the media to mute it?

The perpetrator has a TV. Hostage negotiators are trying to save this child that you SAY you care so much about. Not to mention that there are many thousands of stories about this- which YOU would know if you even bothered to stop your hysterical nonsense for a minute or two.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&gl=us&tbm=nws&q=Alabama+child+hostage&oq=Alabama+child+hostage&gs_l=news-cc.12..43j43i400.4049.14232.0.18179.23.8.1.14.3.0.188.897.3j5.8.0...0.0...1ac.1.HUPKgt66pBc

As for your comparison to a child in a well or runaway balloon, those are NOT hostage situations. Entirely different. And the even dumber comparison to the Ramsay child: She was already dead.

Your posts are becoming increasing bizarre.
