    The title says the five year old is safe, but in the past week he has personally witnessed two people get brutally killed. I fear this child will not ever recover from this traumatic experience and feel truly safe for the rest of his life.

    Authorities say Jim Lee Dykes, 65 — gunned down a school bus driver and abducted a 5-year-old boy from the bus, taking him to an underground bunker on his rural property.

    Dykes, described as a loner who railed against the government,

    He had some scrapes with the law in Florida, including a 1995 arrest for improper exhibition of a weapon.

    Neighbors described Dykes as a man who… threatened to shoot children for setting foot on his property, and patrolled his yard at night with a flashlight and a firearm.

    "He's against the government, starting with Obama on down," he said.

    "I think he's just a really angry and bitter guy with some anger management issues," Dees said. "He is just against everything — the government and his neighbors."


    This is WHY we need background checks.
