1st martyr? No. Senseless death and destruction? Yes. This is not a statement of my opinion, this is what I believe the media will spin it into being,
another whackjob with money and marital problems loses it story.
I think lepermessiah has a point, that this will unleash an outcry for regulation of private planes and more probably pilots.
This isn't the first time this has happened as you may recall someone did the same thing at the white house back in the 90's.
I think along with firearms, private planes are on the wish list for the PTB to be eliminated. They represent freedom to escape the country if needed
and as in this case, can be used as an offensive weapon. No doubt there will new legislation to give private pilots psychological exams and drug
testing at a minimum. Probably vast increases in licensing fees that will weed out all but the very wealthy.
His letter was articulate and he sounded to be an intelligent person. Considering how many times he claimed to have "lost" his retirement funds I
have to wonder what the real story was behind that.
I don;t think this will spark anything except new legislation to make our politicos look good. Besides, his crashing a plane into a building would
possibly take INNOCENT lives with his own, invalidating whatever it was that he was supposedly taking revenge for.
Joe Stack, you wasted your own life and perhaps the lives of others. That was not heroic, it was an act of cowardice. Shame on you! There were better
ways to defend freedom than to give the govt one more excuse to limit our rights.
