I think he was reported missing or wanted in some way from his home town so he had some known issues.

No matter what his reason was for doing it I donít understand how people can joke around about this. Yeah I get your trying to be funny and why should I even care. Maybe because I still have some compassion for other people I have donít know and never will.

While your at it you should make fun of that little girl that got hit with that foul ball

Unfamiliar with "gallows humor" or "black comedy", I see.

Do you wring your hands this much over every single suicide that gets reported, or just the sensational ones? What about tragic drug overdoses? Where do you draw the line?

I mean, I feel badly for this guys family and loved ones, but this sort of thing happens every single day - just usually not via self-immolation and not in front of the WH.

Yes of course. I am assuming there was at least some level of mental illness here combined with some political extremism. But the guy wanted attention regardless and that's what he's getting.

Also, if some white supremacist lit himself on fire in front of the white house while Obama was president you already know SNL and everybody else would be having a field day.

If it were a white supremacist, I would have far less empathy, honestly.

If that makes me a bad person, so be it.

No I get it but sometimes I feel like people have no respect for anyone anymore.

Of course I only see the ones that make the news lol

I draw the line when people are talking about things like this online or in person. I gain nothing by trying to be funny about stuff like this.

To each their own! I was just posting my opinion.

I donít think I said I get upset or that I was upset about what this guy did to himself. And yeah I probably am taking the high road on this one. Because I used to make fun of things like this but now I just think itís not necessary sometimes. Sure I make fun of people......everyone does.

I would like to know was the guy just some crazy guy all his life or did something change and he become crazy and he was protesting something. I think Arab spring was like that and also I saw famous video of an Indian guy doing it too when I was a kid. I was too small to know what he was protesting

people that have already decided to kill themselves are typically very at peace with the decision.
people who are heavily depressed are noted to be surprisingly relieved like a burden was lifted off of them after they make the decision. it seems kinda hard to comprehend, but he may have been enjoying taking his last steps around.
