    He's hardly going to be able to spend it from behind bars though?

    must have had a real reason for wanting to turn himself in.

    Anyone check to make sure his real name isn't "Loki"?

    Even $100 could be enough to buy his family food for many weeks.

    I don't know what sort of internal rivalries exist among Taliban, but it's also possible that the guy had some enemies that he desparately needed protection from. And if the wanted poster gave him the idea for how he could escape being killed by his enemies, why not try to cash in on the $100 while he was at it.

    i like that idea. plus, he might have done something to dishonor somebody and felt the need to remove himself from the taliban, and suicide would be too honorable?

    Just 100$ reward ??!! Even a local thug would fetch higher than him. :P
