New Hampshire Hostage Incident Ends Peacefully

The man who took at least two hostages at a Hillary Clinton campaign office in Rochester, New Hampshire has surrendered.

ROCHESTER, N.H. – A distraught man wearing what appeared to be a bomb walked into a Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign office Friday and demanded to speak to the candidate during a hostage drama that dragged on for nearly six hours before he peacefully surrendered.

Shortly after releasing the last hostage, Leeland Eisenberg walked out of the storefront office, put down a homemade bomb-like package and was immediately surrounded by SWAT team with guns drawn.

The suspect — clad in gray slacks, white dress shirt and a red tie — was put on the ground, handcuffed and taken two blocks to the police office in the back of a tactical response vehicle.

Thankfully, nobody was hurt. The man appears to have a history of mental problems and has been well known by the Rochester police.

    Look for this mental case to show up as an ‘undecided Republican voter’ at the next CNN Republican debate. Seriously, you hate to see this happen. Though this one had a happy ending, how many nutcases now have the campaign offices of any of the candidates in their crosshairs?
