Dude calls himself "Yung Klein?" :face:

Didn't this whole Yung/Young/L'il thing go out in 2006?

Now that the situation has been resolved without harm to others...

So sad. I hope the young man gets the help he needs.

I'm not saying, "Oh, woe is him...pity...pity..." The law will (hopefully) mete out the appropriate punishment to Thaxton (and the FBers--I found that deplorable), but I also hope he's able to be treated by a psychiatrist. It would help to know why he did this, not that there's really a justification.

I'm not a psychologist, nor have I ever been called a self-righteous bleeding heart, but I work with young people. I saw him as just a kid first. Doesn't make me special or anything; it just offers insight into my post. But certainly, he is already a career criminal, and I do think that's sad, because I wonder who else he might have been and hope all is not lost forever. And he's one of too many.

Of course, I hope the gentleman he held will be alright. It's hard to imagine what I'd do in his situation. I can sit and think of a few ideas in the comfort of home, but actually in situ, man, I don't know. Godspeed, Mr. Breitman.

I used to work right near there when I was in Pgh.

Is it wrong that I read this as Godspeed Mr. Bettman?

Hope not, but at first glance I did, too. Not sure if that means anything.

What! The kid's a hockey fan, and he's protesting the lockout? What the h*** did he do when we were trying to get an arena?!?!

According to WTAE (reporting details I must assume have come from interrogation of the perpetrator) the man who took a hostage for 6 hours on the 16th floor of Three Gateway Center today first tried a different floor, but was thwarted by "a secure entrance with a keypad and card swipe." I'm quite familiar with that door because I walk through it every weekday. I can only assume that if he had been able to get in, one of my coworkers would have been the hostage.

He went to my High School too, but it looks like he attended 3 different ones.


And for anyone wondering, his facebook page is back up.
