Skip to comments.Standoff at Clinton campaign office ends: suspect now in custody

"A man is holding hostages in the Hillary Clinton for President Headquarters in Rochester NH"--just reported by Susan Wornick on WCVB TV in Boston
see today’s Fox New?
“I need to speak to Hillary Clinton,” CNN quoted him as saying. “Something’s got to change. Ordinary people need help” with their insurance.
I was right...
Perhaps Carl meant to say "typical Republican debate questionner."
Hillary’s handling of the situation made her look presidential
Is Hillary planting kidnappers now?
I read somewhere that he is a registered democrat.... is this verified?
That’s true, of course. : )
Called CNN bureau in D.C. and then Atlanta.
Hillary’s campaign office, and CNN, exclusively.
He was very focused in his ‘cry for help’.
Haven’t seen tv this morning. I was just saying to someone else that his cry for help was focused exclusively toward Hillary and CNN.
Couldn’t have had a better photographic end to it all.
Mission accomplished! lol.
Just an FYI. The Leeland Eisenberg who was doing 10-20 for rape was released in 2005 and the priest molestation suit was filed in 2002. We know from another article that the rapist was in prison in 1996 so these could not be the same person.
Still wondering if either of them are the perp in the hostage ordeal.
Thanks. It may be some time before all this is sorted out.
Personally I can't stand that guy. He's a hard core lefty!
Nonsense. Trent is no more accountable for the politics of an in-law than James Carville is.
Agreed...that comment of Greg’s was lame. As if all families vote the same way. Still he had to slip that in...
I am not defending anyone.
I think you dialed the wrong number.
It’s funny, yesterday (radio host) Howie Carr said,
“this is like a car chase; it’ll be mostly forgotten
tomorrow. It’ll be a short item in “News In Brief”.
But it looks like the Post put it on the front page!
Expect much coverage from NH papers like the
Union Leader (Manchester) and Foster’s (not the beer)
Daily Dem. (Roch./Dover etc.)
We showed up but the peaceniks didn’t. Must be too cold for them. Little Bill and OCCASparky drove all the way up here for nuthin :(
For some reason, I thought about Hinckley when this guy Eisenberg emerged from the woods.
IMHO, all this does not accrue to Hillary’s benefit in NH. If I were a Dem up there, I’d be thinking that the sort of people chosen to work in her campaign offices around the country might be the same sort she’d put on her Cabinet; nominate for Supreme Court; make head of Armed Forces, etc. Liberal loony leftist bombthrowerss like Eisenberg.
I bet her staff and old creepy Carville are scrambling right now to distance Hillary as far as possible from this weirdo reaching out for her help.
Honestly, I think FOX did a horrible job taking hearsay as fact pertaining to the perps identity in this story. I think it was very unprofessional, and irresponsible journalism to say the least. Mr. Stanley’s family and his business were trotted out on national news for a WHILE before they got the perps identity right. A scoop? I think not. Too bad for FOX News as I much prefer them to CNN... However, this was not one of their finer moments in investigative journalism. CNN was speaking with the man himself so if anyone got the “scoop” it was definitely CNN (through no real “legwork” of their own though).
Yet FOX's goof pales in comparison with the deliberate fraud committed by CNN regarding the last presidential debate. How convenient the emphasis on this story helped to avoid discussion on CNN's dishonesty.
Agreed. Awful convenient for them. Some were even suggesting that the misinformation being fed to FOX was a “set-up” of sorts. Don’t know how true that is, but it’s awfully convenient given all the “coincidences” and the main subjects of the story, IMHO.
“I am new to this thread and I consent to being called a kook and a conspiracy nut, but I am at least 50% serious when I say that it isnt beyond Hitlery to orchestrate this.”
I agree with you 100%. But they won’t ivestigate the man much at all, they are already focusing on “sympathy” for him. I’d like to know what his background is, It wouldn’t be law by any chance would it? Just wondering.
I saw that on the raw feed. Corey Bennett (I think his name was) comes up to Cameron and tells him about Troy Stanley. Cameron yells into his mic "put me on, NOW." I can't believe Fox did this without getting confirmation from the authorities.
>>Oh, good lord, she was not facing disorder. The hostage-taking was over, and even when it was going on, she was not facing it. She was waiting for law enforcement authorities to deal with a troubled man, which they did, without anyone suffering a physical injury.
Clinton impresses with handling of hostage drama
Reuters (on Yahoo)
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton was impressive in the cool way she handled the drama of a man seizing hostages at one of her campaign offices, some voters and analysts said on Saturday. --snip-- --

There’s a lot about the Hildebeest to worry the average layman, and I can claraly see how the mere thought of her as President could have easily pushed this poor slob right off the deep end. I understand lithium withdrawl can have interesting and unpredictable side effects anyway, so if this guy tuned into that last debate, and was off of his meds at the same time, you can see the clear path to the unintended, inevitable and generally unpleasant consequenses..
In any case, you can be sure that her Highness will be out next week trying to repair relations with her voting base among the violent mentally ill...
The arrogance of her Thighness was oozing out, the attempt to make herself look "Presidential" and "in charge" calm and collected and having LOYAL UNIFORMED OFFICERS BEHIND HER was so obvious.....sorry but I think they may have found a mentally ill guy and bought him for a day just so she could have such an appearance in NEW HAMPSHIRE and on the 6 pm news.
So this guy goes to Hillary? And why is that? Because she is the Queen of course! She is the Ruler (Bush is just an imposter). She is the giver of all things. She is the one America must have back in her rightful seat of power.
Sorry - but this is so bogus and so staged and so nothing (nobody was in any danger).....and yet of course she is there with her "troopers" again solving the world's problems .....gag gag and gag again.
Heartfelt sympathy for you and for your beloved sister. Prayers.
I join in urgent prayer for your little sister!
thank you so much. all these prayers mean the world to me, for my sister, Brenda. Please continue to lift her up in prayer. This is such a critical time to turn things around so she can be “of sound mind” again soon.
thanks, Alamo. I am feeling all your prayers for us....and for Brenda...
Will keep praying for Brenda and for you and all your loved ones. Thank you for your continued love of your sister despite her illness.
That’s the paragraph that jumped out at me too.
This ABC News story is another typical Clinton one note tune for the cameras - “Me Me Me Me”.
I’ve thought a lot in recent days about the countless opportunities President Bush, and others, have had to play out certain events before the cameras to curry public favor for themselves. Yet, their sense of decency led them to do the right thing rather than the expedient.
Sometimes journalists have discovered President Bush’s participation in such an event, and reported what they could learn about it, e.g., meeting with loved ones after 9/11/01, and families of our fallen military folks. But, it hasn’t been because he sought the publicity, and often just the opposite.
Two words always seem to make their way into my thoughts regarding the Clintons - crass expediency.
Just read about your sister. God bless her, and all of your family. I will add you all to my prayers.
is this a set up by the hillary campaign???
it sure does look like it! it has all the elements.
the heroine Hillary has faced a major crisis and came through marvelously ... she, the defender of the ordinary man, will break down that evil big brother state of George W. Bush that puts tracking chips inside of people’s heads.
Thank you for your prayers for my sister, Brenda, who had a psychotic breakdown (again) last weekend, after six years of emotional stability. She is mentally ill (classic bipolar) and went off her meds. She is actually being released from the hospital tomorrow (Monday), and my parents and I are very concerned that it is WAY too soon.
Please pray that she stays compliant with her meds, that she participates in therapy and psych services as outpatient, and that her “scary thoughts” to harm others do not lead to a disaster. I do NOT want our family put through the agony and humiliation of media attention, due to some tragic action she might do in a moment of not being in her “right mind”. This man’s family who terrorized Hillary’s staff must be going through HELL, since this happened, with the media knocking down their door. It can happen to ANYONE, with a mentally ill family member.
I have adopted four siblings out of foster care as a single (only) parent, and I do NOT WANT any media attention, in order to protect my children’s privacy.
My prayers for the desires of your heart for your sister’s health, and your family’s privacy and well-being, to be granted.
God bless and surround her with exactly the people, and help, she needs to regain and continue to live her life in healthy emotional stability.
I’m sorry to hear that. May she find an eternal supply of catnip and Clinton chew toys. :-)
