A man seeking "two boys" shot and killed a bus driver and is holding a 5 year old boy hostage. A neighbor reported not being surprised as he had beaten to death her dog who wandered over "to his side of the dirt road."
1. that he killed the bus driver shows his deadly intent
2. that he killed an animal alarms authorities to the potential for sexual abuse of the child. Animal abuse, particularly of pet animals and sexual abuse are often linked. It is the destruction of good, or of innocence, that is sought, even by those who claim GSA.
Our prayers are with this boy and his family as the nation watches.
