How long to wait

A Prison escapee who has been locked in a tense standoff with police at a Sydney block of flats is speaking with negotiators, senior police say. Local police and members of the state protection group have been at the inner-city block on Henry Avenue in Ultimo since 5pm (AEDT) yesterday.

Armed officers, wearing helmets and bullet-proof vests, have positioned themselves around the building and cordoned off the surrounding streets. City Central Commander, Superintendent Paul Carey, today said it was not known if the man, who had made no demands, had a weapon.

It was believed the man was alone in the unit. Supt Carey said at least one neighbour had been evacuated. Police had made contact with the man over the telephone and were continuing to negotiate.

"At this stage our plan is to resolve the matter peacefully without anybody being hurt and ... to continue negotiating with this person until he walks out of the unit," Supt Carey told reporters.

Last I heard the guy has been in there for 18 hours and counting, we know he doesn't have a hostage, probably no weapon, we have cops armed to the teeth surrounding the place, he has no where to run, but won't give up, so how long do we have to wait for this prick to fall off to sleep, 25 hours, 2, 3, 4 days till he feels better about himself. How long do people in the immediate vicinity have to be inconvenienced because of this scum?

Personally I would like to throw in a few flash bangs, then walk in there and shoot the crim in the crotch a few times and get it over with.

Am I being too harsh?
