    This is a sad story, and they did what the police would have them do.

    WILKES-BARRE, Pa. - A 41-year-old man stormed a beauty salon and bludgeoned four grandmothers with a hammer, fracturing one’s skull, before making off with less than $90, police said.

    Thomas Leyshon III, of Mountain Top, was arrested after a daylong manhunt Friday.

    The women, aged 56 to 76, did not resist but were beaten anyway, witnesses said. At least one required surgery.“It takes a coward to go after some old women,” said Andy Chopka, grandson of victim Jeanna Chopka.

    Authorities allege Leyshon attacked a co-owner of Hairem Family Hair and Nail Care while demanding money from the register and the women’s purses.

    ‘Senseless act of brutality’
    “This is a completely senseless act of brutality against women who were doing nothing more than spending a day at the beauty parlor,” prosecutor David Lupas said. “These are ... the most vulnerable of victims.”

    Leyshon was being held Saturday on $100,000 bail. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

    The victims were treated at hospitals for head and facial injuries.

    Mountain Top, PA is the location of our forum member, Pa. Patriot.

    I hope no one close to him suffered in this. Its a small city/town.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
