1. WTF: "What the fuck is going on with this country and crazy old hateful white men....????? "???

Are you serious?

Where in the article does it mention the race of Mr. Sailors, and why should it matter?

Do you plan to post many more stories and add your personal racist commentary on DU?

6. If you'd read

any of the other articles posted on DU on this story you'd have seen the shooter's mugshot. He is a white man.

It remains to be seen how crazy and hateful he is.

10. It matters not, it's still racial broadbrushing to complain about his racial identity. NT

11. .

A poster was banned for broadbrushing white people.

It's just unnecessary. The story is sad enough without your editorial bashing based on skin color.

Any color.

2. You were told why

You proceeded to delete the thread.

This is from five hours ago via Reuters...

MIDLAND CITY, Alabama | Sat Feb 2, 2013 1:39pm EST
(Reuters) - Efforts to free a 5-year-old boy from a gunman in an underground bunker, where he fled after killing the boy's school bus driver, were shrouded in secrecy on Saturday as the standoff in rural Alabama dragged into a fifth straight day.

Police sources said the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team, often described as federal law enforcement's only full-time counterterrorism unit, was leading negotiations aimed at securing the boy's safe release.

But FBI officials have declined to comment, referring calls to local authorities who have been extremely tight-lipped, providing few official updates on the situation.

Dale County Sheriff Wally Olson, chief spokesman for local law enforcement officials in Midland City, told a brief news conference on Saturday that authorities had been "in constant communication" with the suspect, who was officially identified on Friday as 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes.

3. Oh and once again, here it is.

The gentleman in question has a TV. They have not cut power due to the kid. If you have TV crews filming, insta info for the bad guy.

This is why you will have paper reporting and only paper, or net reporting. You can bet your sweet potatoes local reporters are listening to the scanner and not sharing.

We had a recent swat incident that got ugly. It did not make the nooz....beyond police activity at so and so until it went code four...aka over.
