Hostage situation at Clinton's office

Quote:

A man claiming to have a bomb has taken a number of people hostage at a Hillary Clinton campaign office in Rochester, New Hampshire, police say.


Mrs Clinton is at a Democratic campaign event in Virginia and is not involved in the siege.

Unconfirmed reports say two hostages have been seized.

The area has been evacuated and police are sending a tactical bomb unit to the scene, according to a New Hampshire police spokesman.

Hostage negotiators have arrived at the scene, police said.

One local shopkeeper described how a witness came in to raise the alarm.

Lettie Tzizik told local television station WMUR TV: "A young woman... came rushing into the store just in tears, and she said: 'You need to call 911 - a man has just walked into the Clinton office, opened his coat and showed us a bomb strapped to his chest with duct tape'."

This is horrible. I hope the hostages make it out safe. I heard Obama's office closed down as a precaution.

40-ish year old male, "salt and pepper" grey hair, apparently with a history of mental instability. He told his son earlier to watch the news today.

Now they are saying the "explosives" are road flares.

Should they have called in an air-strike and dropped a 500 pound smart bomb, by now?

Also apparently he wanted to be hospitalized so he did something like this to put him there. This is nuts.

There is a sad case I was working on this summer, where a severely mentally ill man desperately wanted to be detained because he feared what he'd do otherwise. He suffered from paranoid delusions that everyone had AIDS and was trying to infect him. He grew some marijuana plants and called the police to report himself. They took him in to a cell and his sister told him they had to keep him detained by himself because he was a danger to himself and others. He was placed with a cell mate despite his demands to be in solitary. That night, he killed his cell mate by bashing his head into the wall.

A lot of people like that get lost in our system.
