Famed gay rights lawyer sets himself on fire at Prospect Park in protest suicide against fossil fuels
#1
A nationally known advocate for gay rights and the environment died Saturday in a fiery Prospect Park suicide, with his self-immolation meant as a wake-up call to save the planet.

The charred remains of David Buckel, 60, were discovered shortly after sunrise when firefighters responded to a 6:40 a.m. blaze in the southwest corner of the sprawling Brooklyn park.

“I am David Buckel and I just killed myself by fire as a protest suicide,” read a hand-written suicide note left near the blackened circle of burned grass. “I apologize to you for the mess.”

A second, longer note — left with the first inside an envelope marked “For the police” — said Buckel doused himself in “fossil fuel” before starting the fatal fire as a metaphor for the destruction of the planet.

Once again the truism "Liberalism is a mental disease" has been proved valid.

#1 way of going has to be feet first through a wood chipper. Nothing compares to the old Medieval torture though.

So, they're self terminating now. Hmmm. I'm not sure what to feel here except horror. The method is horrifying! There was a chance that he might have survived, if somebody had been there to put out the fire. Then, he wasn't really thinking rationally enough to anticipate the consequences of survival. If you've ever spent time in a burn unit, which I have due to a family member catching fire and surviving 30% of his body receiving 3rd degree burns, you would know the torture that comes after the burn to keep them alive. How anybody could do this to themselves intentionally stuns me. What a horrible way to go!

He did it for nothing.

It served no purpose, it will not bring awareness to anything other than what a crazy fucker he was. I mean you have to be insane to set yourself on fire.

It's excruciating. When my mom was a toddler she fell into a barrel the neighbors were using to burn things.

She spent almost 3 years in the hospital getting skin grafts and recovering. That was almost 70 years ago too, it was even more horrific then, medicine has come a long way since. She remembered everything about it including the pain. She had horrible scars all over her body.

Fire is most definitely one of the worst ways to go.
