In 'protest suicide,' lawyer famed for gay rights cases burns himself to death in New York

Source: LA Times

A prominent lawyer known for his impassioned advocacy for LGBT rights and environmental issues doused himself with an accelerant and burned himself to death in a New York City park on Saturday to protest ecological destruction caused by fossil fuels.

The charred body of David Buckel was discovered by police officers, who were initially dispatched to Prospect Park around 6:10 a.m. to investigate what appeared to be a brush fire, police said.

A New York Police Department spokesman said a note was found at the scene and foul play quickly ruled out.
The Daily News reported that Buckel left a handwritten note that said, "My name is David Buckel and I just killed myself by fire as a protest suicide. I apologize to you for the mess."

Buckel also left a longer, typed note and sent a copy to the Daily News, which quoted the note at length. "My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves." He added that he hoped that his demise was "an honorable death that might serve others."

A leftist carrying out an honorable act that serves others--something to be encouraged.

4. Too sad for words.

I hope that - somehow - his sacrifice will not be in vain

If he starts a leftist trend, his sacrifice will not have been done in vain.

Oh.my.God.

A Democrat, liberal, or primitive making a sacrifice himself, rather than demanding that "other people" do it?

The world has surely turned upside down.

But, he apologized for the mess in his note.

And, it was all for the greater good.

So, it's all good.

Liberalism is a mental disease...

DUmmies need to learn from his actions, and immitate them...

In gigantic numbers, call it the "Million DUmmie March-Feeling the BURN!!!!"
Murphy's 3rd Law:  "You can't make anything 'idiot DUmmie proof'.  The world will just create a better idiot DUmmie."

Liberals are like Slinkys.  Basically useless, but they do bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs...
 
Global warming supporters believe that a few hundred million tons of CO2 has more control over our climate than a million mile in diameter, unshielded thermo-nuclear fusion reactor at the middle of the solar system.

That is a horrific mess to leave behind.  Why not do something cleaner and less of a nightmare fuel?  Pills and booze is nice and clean.  Asshole.

What was his DU name(s)?

Apparently he was protesting fossil fuels...what an idiot.

However, he looks (err..looked) like SO many of the DUmbasses.

Help keep America beautiful...deface a liberal.

The Democrat and Republican parties are simply the left and right wings of the same bird of prey.

The road to freedom is paved with dead liberals.
