He's done no matter what. Just let the guy go and take a lighter sentencing. Better than killing him and rotting


I thinks it's more about the attention now. Who knows what is going on in his head and what he will do, but one of the reasons these people do this is for the attention. Look at all the news fans and helicopters going. They are in deep crap already, so why not ride it out is probably what is going through his head.

I remember a story a while back but i think it was just a dude had his girlfriend locked in a hotel room. I dunno if he was confirmed armed or not. But he was doing the same thing; posting on Facebook, however his one friend was telling him what was going on on the outside (police movements) and got busted hard too.

Thanks. I believe everyone from my firm was evacuated and they're all fine. It looks like they were instructed to evacuate via the freight elevator. The last email I have is from around 10:00 and says the ones who were in were meeting in Market Square. I imagine that they've all been sent home by now.

Bah, I have a brief I need to finish and I need access to documents in my office to work on it. This sucks.

Latest in the P-G said Chief Harper said they would "consider" asking to have the site taken down. But he didn't say it was down yet.

VPN won't work for scribbles on a notebook or physical documents.
