A D.C. man on fire at the National Mall Friday may not have acted alone in his terrifying act. Yesterday, it was reported that the man deliberately ignited himself on fire in front of dozens of witnesses at Washington’s National Mall, causing visitors and joggers to rush to the man’s aid, extinguishing him with their shirts, says NBC on Oct. 4.
The NY Daily News is now reporting that the man had an accomplice – a deliberate witness who set up a camera and tripod and watched as the man doused himself with gasoline and lit his flesh ablaze. The burned man was airlifted to a local hospital and remains in critical condition today.
Well, they are doing a great job of keeping it hushed,
Don't worry they will marginalize him soon enough, he was crazy, etc...
All to dismiss the one thing that is very clear to all of us.
Something is very wrong in America.

My opinion - This is being kept quiet because self-immolation doesn't happen in 'Muricah. It's something that Buddhist monks do, protesting the Chinese government. It isn't something that happens here, in the land of the free and brave. And no one wants the public to see how bad things have really gotten.
