FBI: Ala. man engaged in ‘firefight’ with officers

MIDLAND CITY, Ala. (AP) — The FBI says the Alabama man who held a 5-year-old boy captive in an underground bunker for nearly a week engaged in a “firefight” with SWAT agents before he was killed during a rescue operation.

Special Agent Jason Pack said in an email that it also appears 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes “reinforced the bunker against any attempted entry by law enforcement.”

Pack said bomb technicians found two explosive devices today on the property. He said one was inside the bunker, the other was located inside the plastic pipe through which he had been talking with negotiators

Officers killed Dykes on Monday, six days after he boarded a school bus, fatally shot the driver and abducted the young boy.

yeah right. Just like Ruby Ridge and Waco. Wait 'till MAObama sends a couple drones over your neck of the woods! There's no group more dangerous to this country than the clueless liberals in charge. It will play out in time.

Interesting Analysis

Why is it that those who steal guns and then use them to kill movie goers, young children in school, fellow college students, etc. have never proven to be conservative NRA members?

Ft Hood ~~~ Registered Democrat ~ Muslim

Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals

Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff ~ Registered Democrat

Colorado Theater ~~~ Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal

Connecticut School Shooter - ~~~ Registered Democrat; hated Christians.

Common thread is that all of these shooters were progressive liberal Democrats . 

Suggest removal:
