The feds did a nice job. The only casualty was the BG. I hope the boy is not too traumatized.
Good work to all the LEO's involved.

Glad the child is safe. Bye bye bad guy.
NEVER point a gun at something you are not prepared to destroy!
AND for GODS sake, get your finger off the trigger until you are ready to squeeze the trigger!
Bravo Zulu, gentlemen! I worried that this one wouldn't end so well.
Good news! This is what should happen to cowards that hide behind children...
RIP Jeff Cooper
Prayers for him and great relief also for him and his family. Boy, this must be the best day in their lives!
It seems to have ended as well as we could hope. I know I don't know enough to say they should have gone in earlier.
I'm sure they went in as soon as they "knew" it was time. Let's all pray for the little boy to recover from this ordeal.
They need to kill the bad guy a few more times just for good measure. You know how bad guys lie.
Know Guns, Know Safety, Know Peace.
No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
I am glad the boy is safe and turned out well for him. Job well done.

So glad to see this end well, I did not think the nutjob would let this kid live. He apparently had some issues with Government and just went off the deep end.
I also think the guy was kind of a fatalist, he knew his number was up and perhaps that is what brought the negotations to a halt. Who knows at this point, but...
A. The bad guy is dead, courtesy of the good guys and
B. The child is safe and unharmed, rescued by the good guys.
