I was wondering just how long we'd have to wait until somebody did exactly this.....

Recall vividly the monks that self immolated during the Viet Nam War.

A person left with no hope for the future...nobody to turn to...is a dangerous person not only to others, but themselves too.

U.S. Park Police officers found the man engulfed in flames when they arrived, said Maj. Patrick Smith. He said the cause of the blaze was under investigation.

As per Fox News, the man has died and can only be identified via DNA and dental records.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

Not drenched in gasoline with only joggers' shirts to put the fire out.

I wonder if we'll ever get the story on this. 

Is he trying to start an "Arab Spring" here in America?

Oddly enough, the deceased self-immolator was conscious and coherent enough in the aftermath of the incident to thank passers by for putting out the flames before being taken to hospital:

    The man reportedly thanked the joggers before he was taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center by a U.S. Park Police helicopter that

Was it Piers Morgan? :seeya:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

I worked with a Vietnam vet who chuckled when he mentioned the monk's signs were always written in English.  They knew how to play the propaganda game.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

I didn't notice. Perhaps there are tattoos someone didn't want us to see?  :shrug:

I have always noticed that. They are usually written in English when playing to the media.

Interesting.  Obviously terrific human tragedy (unlike the woman who used her car as a weapon) is a comedic moment.   Any new hard news?  Did I miss something?

Or perhaps they didn't want us to see his burned flesh.

I'm glad there are distortions.

btw, is there any update on who this guy was, and why he did this horrific thing?
