People have lost their damn minds :dismay: 

 

(*from The Guardian website)

“An active-duty member of the US air force has died after setting himself on fire outside the Israeli embassy in Washington DC, while declaring he will “no longer be complicit in genocide”.

The man was identified as the 25-year-old airman Aaron Bushnell of San Antonio, Texas.

The Metropolitan police department said it responded to an incident on International Drive around 1pm on Sunday to assist the Secret Service.

A video posted online showed Bushnell in a uniform shouting “Free Palestine” as he burned while identifying himself as an active air force member. He was reportedly on fire for about a minute before law enforcement officers put it out.

Bushnell walked up to the embassy and began livestreaming on the video streaming platform Twitch, a person familiar with the matter told the Associated Press. He set his phone down and then doused himself in a fluid and set it alight, saying at one point, he “will no longer be complicit in genocide” the source told AP. The video was later removed from the streaming platform.“

 

This is where his parents or the school system have failed this poor kid. When you think lighting yourself on fire is going to result in anything more than an excruciating death for yourself…someone has failed you. RIP, sincerely thank you for your service…sorry you decided to end your life over Hamas getting the pizza they ordered :(

We are here talking about it. 

You suspect his lighting himself on fire and suffering the most horrific possible death is going to change US/Israel/Gaza policy in any way?
