Hostage situtation in Rochester New Hampshire

The Clinton Campaign Headquarters in Rochester New Hampshire wss held hostage by an individual,Leeland Eisenburg, who stated he wanted to talk to Hillary Clinton. As he entered the building he showed a young girl what appeared to be a bomb strapped to his chest. She ran out of the building and into another store screaming that a man had entered the Headquarters with what appeared to be a bomb. There were hostages inside the building. After 5 hours and the release of his hostages he came out of the building and laid down in the road with his hands behind him ready to be handcuffed. The successful end of a very dangerous situation. None of the hostages were hurt. Obama and Roberts campaign offices were closed after notification of the problems. Kudo's to the Rochester Police Department and the New Hampshire State police for their professional handling of this Hostage situation with no guns fired nor anyone hurt.

Concur, the law enforcers did an outstanding job in this situation and hopefully we will not see a repeat of this fiasco for the rest of the elections season. Have a fine Maine weekend.

They did indeed do an outstanding job, Tap. It's a shame we have so many nutcases in this country. I can't even imagine what kind of squirrels live in the mind of a person like this. It's truly sad!

I'm not a Hillary fan , but that was a bad scene. Heard that it was just flares he had taped on his body. It scary what kind of people that are out there & some of the nuts are in public office

The secret for a successful hostage negotiation is to keep the Feds away (remember Waco?).

They did an excellant job.

WHT, Right, Thank God it ended OK. stay well


Crabby, That's my understanding also, could have been much worse. She wasnt even there. If she had been there really would have been fireworks, I'm afraid.....I'm with you there are many and the sad part is they are mostly in one party.....Won't say which, but an ass is a good representation of the majority of them. stay well...

Paul, Thanks for stopping by. I don't know when they got there but they were there. New Hampshire's finest probaby told them to but out it wasn't their jurisdiction, or something to that affect..I saw a Mass car in the midst of all the chaos also. Of course much more is coming out today, like was it he on Mass probation.....and a couple other items like domestic abuse etc etc.....Much unpaid publicity and believe me some are making the best of it......I ramble....stay well.....
