Just when he thought his day couldn’t get any worse.

Poor shmuck, that pepper spray on his burns ... death must have been a blessing!

Police said someone else, a motorist who had been driving by, did grab an actual fire extinguisher to help Shaull, but he kept running away.

Pepper spray the burning man and he would tend to run away.

Such a shame this lunatic had to increase his carbon footprint before committing suicide.

That he offed himself as a human torch is of no moment.

No one at Nicholas Ungar Furs wanted to comment on the incident.

However loud laughter was heard emanating from the store!

I’m glad he didn’t harm anyone else. Prayers for a deeply misguided soul.

Pepper spray? Was the officer trying to season the guy?

Police Dept action item: make pepper spray a different color than fire extinguisher.

Other than that, he kept running away. He did not want to be extinguished. He wanted to be THE fur martyr. Well I guess he succeeded.

Now everyone will remember him for, 5 or 10 minutes. Tops. Way to go, idiot. Shoulda had a V8. Mink, anyone?

A lot of people here have put their life on the line for a cause.

And a lot of people WOULD be here if they hadn't died for their cause already.

Lucian is inclined to put the worst interpretation on the conduct of the Cynics. Thus, when Peregrinus - called Proteus - who had become a Christian in Palestine, but who had subsequently joined the ranks of the Cynics, publicly burnt himself to death at Olympia in order to give an example of contempt for death, to imitate the Cynic patron Heracles, and to unite himself with the divine element, Lucian assumes that his action was due simply to a love of notoriety - kenodoxia.

It was not immediately clear whether Shaull was protesting against the store...

Maybe they should have just asked him, "WHAT FUR?"

She said it did not make matters worse but that the use of the spray was regrettable.

Nope matters were just about as bad as they were going to get with a man determined to flambe himself on a public street. I seriously doubt that he even knew he was pepper sprayed, you know with being on fire and all. I am just very grateful that he was not able to do the harm to others that he had in mind.

“Police said the officer, who was nearby, saw 26-year-old Daniel Shaull from Kansas on fire, parked her patrol car, went to her trunk and accidentally grabbed pepper spray used for riot control instead of the fire extinguisher.”

“There are animals dying! Animals dying!” witnesses said Shaull was screaming as flames engulfed his body and shot above his head.

I think most of them were already dead.

In such a stupid way? No thanks.

No different that a murder suicide of your family to protest gun control.

No mam. People usually run around screaming when they are on fire.

“look at me,Look at me” taken just a little too far!Sounds like he wanted to set fire to the store but didn’t check the hours that they were open.

“I find this sad. Liberalism does this to people, and they are used by the ideology. This guy simply sounded mentally unstable.”

I agree, this is very sad, what a horrible way to die. Apparently he had a history of psychiatric problems and suicide attempts. I feel very sorry for his family.
