ROCHESTER, N.H. - In the hours before he allegedly took five people hostage at Hillary Clinton's campaign office Friday, Leeland Eisenberg sat drinking rum and cokes with his stepson in his trailer.
He drank heavily, and in a fog of frustration and delusion, said he could no longer afford his medication for bipolar disorder, his stepson, Benjamin Warren, said by phone last night. Unemployed, Eisenberg had no money to see a doctor; a local hospital turned him away when he went for help, Warren said.

So, we need “free” health care. QED.
Don’t tell me you think he’s another DNC plant.
Either that or free booze and mixers.
Substitute things like LG TV, XBox and new car for alcohol, and you've got your typical Democrat supporter. No sense of personal responsibility.
Did anyone get his screen-name at DU or Kos?
Well, some folks like to "self medicate" and that should be free too!
Bipolar meds are countra indicated by alcohol and they are basically free from every public mental health facility in the country.
Not taking your meds and consuming alcohol is a common characteristic of anti social behaviour and bi polar mental illness in general terms.
. . .knowing that he is 'disturbed' when not on them; making a conscious decision to not take them; says to me, one should be considered fully responsible for one's own, outcome based decision.
Applies to 'meds'. . .drugs; alcohol and any other impairment, people CHOOSE to operate under.
Bipolars don’t act with logic, even on their meds.
Many bipolars don’t respond to all medications. It’s like mixing cocktails. Some work, some don’t. Then after they’ve worked for a while, they stop and you have to start all over again. Besides, they often won’t take them, because they are fine- it’s everyone else who is crazy.
My husband was on lithium, which was cheap. But he also needed one that was more than $500 a month. I used to get down on my knees and thank God every day we had good insurance. The thing is, if he had no income, most of the drug companies had programs to give drugs for little or no cost. But bipolars often can’t muster up the logic to even fill out a paper. If I tried to give my husband a paper, he would usually end up throwing something through the window. I did it all.
The sad thing is, society really has no answer for the brittle manic depressive. Family is the only one, and they usually alienate them all.
To this guy, holding Hillary’s headquarters hostage I’m sure made perfect sense. It’s classic. My husband had to be babysitted to make sure he didn’t do stuff like that, even taking expensive meds. And he had numerous expensive hospital stays.
At least the guy was smart enough not to be brandishing a weapon. It would have made him an easy Foster shot.
Funny how these people can drive, buy, drink, mix, screw, eat, travel, tell jokes...and yet have some disease that doesn’t show up on any CAT scan, or blood test.
Oh my,,,,,,,here we go,,,,,,,,,,playing the “victim” card, couldn’t afford meds, which will lead us to hills famous healthcare plan.....hang on to your bippies people, the fun has just begun!
So where does his beer money come from? Is he receiving some kind of disability benefits? What was his settlement from the church?
Where's the other side of the coin on this guy?
“Yeah, give me 3 cartons of Marlboros, a case of Bud, three quarts of Jamaican Rum, and,....darn it that doesn’t leave me with enough dough to by my Meds, oh well, just enough left for dozen Trojans and my Cialis!”
Every bi-polar “person” I’ve come in contact with has been nothing but abusive and destructive to themselves and everyone around them. They actually point to their condition for sympathy and try to excuse their behavior instead of utilizing treatment. Steer clear!
Imagine the surprised look on Vince’s face when Hitlery shot him. Actually I think she may have left that drop piece on his desk, he picks it up, while Hitlery is telling a SS agent that he threatened to shoot her. Guy opens the door, Vince has the gun in his hand, turns toward the door and the guy wipes him. LOL!
