In regards to the 16 month old hostage: As a parent and a person with schizophrenic family memebers, the one thing I'm concerned with is the safety of the toddler. I know they say he's alive and this man probably doesn't intend on hurting the boy, but that's not the point. What about the trauma this child is enduring. The police are firing Flash bombs into the apartment...how harmful is that for this baby to be breathing in that crap? Not to mention the shooting, screaming and being cooped up with schitzo cousin. That poor little guy must be so scared and traumatized.
