    Just south of my neck of the woods. Woohoo.

    Suspect, 3 hostages walk out of Wytheville Post Office | WSLS 10


    Prior reports were that a number of grenades were found in his vehicle.

    He had five hostages and five pounds of C4 strapped to his wheelchair? That must be a big chair... :eusa_eh:

    "He was really down on the government," Oliver told The Associated Press on Thursday in an interview at his mother's floral shop. "About the government taking over the right to bear arms ... (and) he was angry at the government over taxing us."

    "He was really upset about Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize and sending troops to Afghanistan."


    So who's been MIA in the last few days LOL

    But was he a "terrorist" the same way that some Nigerian with fireworks on board a commercial flight was?

    I mean 4 lbs of C4 and hostages vs some home made recipe strapped to his leg that caught fire but wouldn't ignite? Who is the terrorist?

    That Nigerian wasn't a terrorist.

    He was a prince trying to deliver $2 million dollars to someone in America.

    The people he shot at and held hostage (and believed he had explosives) probably considered him a terrorist.

    Seems I'm behind in the news. I don't know what you're talking about re: a Nigerian.
