Dear Lord have mercy

Posted by   + Show Post

I can't even fathom having my child taken by a stranger off a bus and holding him hostage.  Watching the news about the little boy in Alabama.  That bus driver lost his life trying to save the kids. I know the man must be mentally ill. I hope and pray that child comes out safe and not harmed other than what he has seen already. Poor baby and poor parents.

School bus driver shot, boy taken hostage and held in bomb shelter in southern Alabama 

The gunman stormed the bus on Tuesday afternoon, grabbed the boy and shot the driver four times, according to local reports. The boy, said to be 5 or 6, was not hurt and federal, state and local authorities were negotiating with the man.

In this Tuesday, Jan 29, 2013 photo, law enforcement officers walk up the road toward a home where a school bus shooting suspect was hiding inside a bunker late Tuesday. Police, SWAT teams and negotiators were at a rural property where a man was believed to be holed up in a homemade bunker Wednesday, HAN 30, 2013 after fatally shooting the driver of a school bus and fleeing with a 6-year-old child passenger, authorities said. The man boarded the stopped school bus in the town of Midland City on Tuesday afternoon and shot the driver when he refused to let the child off the bus. The bus driver died.

Is he making demands?  Is there a reason he is holding this boy hostage?  Ugh.. this is so sad.

I am not sure other than he is crazier than a bed bug and locked in an underground bunker with the poor little guy.

Omg I didn't knwo that!

Quoting Thelmama:

It says the only reason he got the one little boy is because the little boy was so scared he fainted.  Poor sweet baby.
