Here’s more on Jim Lee Dykes, the 66-year-old Vietnam vet who is holding a 5-year-old boy hostage in a hole in the ground just outside Midland City, Alabama:
Michael Creel said Dykes kept to himself and listened to a lot of talk radio.
“He was very into what’s going on with the nation and the politics and all the laws being made. The things he didn’t agree with, he would ventilate,” he said.
James Arrington, police chief of the neighboring town of Pinckard, put it differently.
“He’s against the government, starting with Obama on down,” he said.
What Creel didn’t say is that Dykes listened to a lot of conservative talk radio which whipped this obviously unstable man into a fear- and hate-filled frenzy and helped push him into doing what he’s doing.
Who would have ever imagined such a thing (I say sarcastically).
