It will only be a mater of time before TMZ removes my comment that this guy looks like Jon Gosselin, they did it twice already. TMZ is becoming the myspace of gossip sites, kind of lame

How about giving us another Paris or Linsay story TMZ? we you haven't done enough of them.

well done
I'm not a fan of police work (usually) but when they do good then we should applaud.

hostage takers do NOT deserve any mercy : they are the most selfish people.

the cops did a fantastic job, indeed.

Wonder how how long it take the lame stream media to try to find something on this guy, if he has any connection to the right or a tea party party person, the prey each time when crap like that happens they desperate to find anything they can to pin it on them; sounds like a libby loon to me. Shoot to kill before they kill anyone else. No negotiations with loons and terrorist.

am i the only low-life out here that thinks its a little ironic that this is yet ANOTHER crazed ethnic character that has terrorized another part of the world, and that in his little tirade he mentions that immigration is a filth?

do you think that if there were stricter immigration laws about 50 or 100 years ago (like after WW1 and WW2 were finished roughly) we would have to listen to this pyschosis-laden trype about pregnancy being the root of war and all that bul****?

don't get me wrong i'm far from racist...but its more than a little incensing to say the least when one of the nations largest "minority groups" (and yes that is an incredible oxy-moron, given that minorites FAR outnumber the so-called majorities) is chewing about over-population and the filth it brings?

find out what country this chuck is from and TRY to tell me it hasn't damn near imploded due to over-population.

you know what's worse than a hypocrite?
a foreign hypocrite, that's what...
