It amazes me still that he didn't kill the kid.

(Reuters) - Authorities killed a gunman holding a 5-year-old boy hostage in an underground bunker in rural Alabama on Monday and plucked the child to safety without injury, a local law enforcement official said.

"It's all over," said the official, who asked not to be identified by name because he had not been authorized to discuss the operation that led to the successful rescue of the child.

"The boy is OK."
Prayers to the kid and his family for a full recovery.

Glad the kid made it out in one piece. Hope he recovers quickly.

My PD's policy is to tramatize juvenile hostages for up to a maximum of 3 days and adults for 6 days.

All joking aside; are you freaking serious?

Please share with us your 100% foolproof plan, that would have quickly ended this situation without getting the kid killed in the process....

I'll hang up and listen.
