Black Man Sets Self on Fire

Yesterday an unidentified man (later found to have mental illness) sat down at the National Mall in Washington DC, sprinkled fuel all over his body, and quietly set himself on fire.

He didn’t flinch from where he was sitting as the fire consumed him. Other people around the area had to come to his rescue but he suffered first degree burns.

  1. I would like to give the article a “Like”, but the nature of it is so dire that someone would do that to himself, as they did in Vietnam, and Southeast Asia. Terrible.
