A man was seen yelling about protests over the election in a coffee shop. He left the shop went to his car and grabbed a can of gas, (dumped it on himself) and lit himself up. The story says he was in a Marine uniform. He is being treated for burns at a local hospital.


The department says the man, who was dressed in a U.S. Marine Corps uniform, walked into Angel Falls Coffee on South Highland Ave. yelling about the recent protests over the election results.

He then left the coffee shop, grabbed a can of gasoline from his car and set himself on fire. A witness in a nearby business ran out and extinguished the flames.


EDIT:Thanks to Lucid Lunacy for better info.
Looks like the man was looking for a anti-Trump protest and who organized the last protest. He left and lit himself up.


Witnesses told the Akron Beacon Journal the man had become increasingly agitated after discussing the need to protest President-elect Donald Trump. They say the man had walked into a coffee shop and asked whether anyone knew who had organized a recent anti-Trump protest. They say he then left the store and set himself on fire after he doused himself in gasoline.

Why couldn't he do this in the privacy of his own home.
His point would have been more poignant.

I can't tell from the report whether he was objecting to the result or objecting to the protests against the result.
The difference would be that suicide in the second case would be even less logical than in the first case.

The media is writing better than a 3 year old's picture of the sun but much worse than Cat n The Hat.

Yes, they're giving us both versions- "yelling about the election results" and "yelling about the protests".
If some intrepid reporter could unearth a few exact words, we might be able to work it out ourselves.

Some additional information from a different source: link

Basically said he went in ranting about the need to protest Trump, and asked people who organized a recent anti-Trump protest. Presumably he didn't get a satisfactory response and decided to lit himself on fire.

So...a mentally unstable man lights himself on fire.

Not one post extending sympathy or concern.

A man set himself on fire.

Oh my God.

He is in my prayers.

He set himself on fire, what did he think was going to happen. If anything I hope he gets the help he needs mentally after the self inflicted burns heal.

Probably another anti depressant prescribe drug victim.

Sad if this whole story is true.

Nothing wrong with a problem that takes care of itself.

I hope more hysterical anti-trumpers follow suit.

A couple of first-class passengers boo a military family - 3 pages of lib-bashing

A marine douses himself in gasoline and sets himself on fire - barely a peep about anything.

Yeah, people just like being negative and turning things political whenever they can.
