I'm so glad to hear this had a Happy Ending.

So sad that little boy had to go thru such an experience but I'm so glad he's alive.
I mentioned the other day the suspect wanted attention from the news media and after I posted that comment they said the same thing on television a few hours later. I could go on but I'm sure all of you have something to you wish to say too! Maybe we could get a fund started for the boy or for all of those that were on the bus that fatal day.

It's good this hostage situation is over and the boy is safe. It makes me wonder why this happened in the first place. Makes me think this guy had a message he wanted to get out and possibly said once his message is broadcast nationwide he will let the child go. Why else would he do such a thing? I know we live in a weird world nowadays and this guy had some problems but I still think he did this to promote a message of some sort. Of course we will never know the facts of this situation. We don't even know if he killed himself or if the FBI killed him. Again, we will never know the truth.
Glad the little boy is ok and back with his parents.

Doesn't matter who killed him, the tax payers won't have to feed him for the rest of his life if he would have went to jail.

He got what he wanted, publicity. Same as that nut in Conn.
Now, the anti gunners get what they want, publicity.

I feel bad for all parties involved, including the kidnapper that has been tormented by personal demons since the Vietnam war. He is at peace now, and the boy is free.

Some things just happen, no one party to blame.
