    NY shooting with hostages

    BINGHAMTON, N.Y. A gunman blocked the back door of an immigration services center with his car Friday before walking through the front door firing, wounding at least six people and taking as many as 41 hostage, officials said.

    Two handguns were recovered at the scene, said a law enforcement official who was not authorized to speak about details of an ongoing hostage response and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

    It sounds like it is still going on, let's all keep them in our prayers.

    Did the guy get deported or something?

    I doubt they even know. They are still in negotiations.

    Re: NY shooting with hostages

    Is it just me or does this kind of stuff seem to happen like once a month anymore? Maybe it's just because I follow the news more now that I'm older...does anyone remember things of this nature occurring so often 10-20 years ago?

    The saddest thing is that this is an absolute tragedy and it will be out of the news in a week...

    Sad times that we live in.

    A week? This will last the weekend, and the networks will be done with it on Monday.

    2 things u have to remember tho...

    1. Exposure is what this POS is after

    2. Sadly, it happens enough now (or we just hear about it more) that the public has become numb to it...

    Dumb question, but when does #2 start to obviate #1. I'm old enough to have lived through the "hijacking craze" of the '70s, and eventually overexposure as well as some very rudimentary security ended that.
