In a tragic development, the unidentified man who set himself on fire on the National Mall at about 4:30 p.m. on Friday in between the Air and Space Museum and the National Gallery, and who sustained burns to 80% of his body, has died. AP reports: "A District of Columbia police spokesman says a man who set himself on fire on the National Mall has died his injuries. Officer Araz Alali says the man died Friday night at a hospital where he had been airlifted. He says the man was so badly burned that he will need to be through DNA and dental records. The man poured a can of gasoline on himself in the center portion of the mall Friday afternoon. He then set himself on fire, with passing joggers taking off their shirts to help douse the flames."

Lost his fire to live.
I wonder why this hasn’t been blamed on the conservatives, or the tea party?
I’m really surprised they haven’t tried to say the man was distraught over the government shutdown, or afraid Obamacare was in jeopardy.
The same could be said about the woman that ran into the barricades.

Well, at least his last days on earth weren’t spent cold.
Jan Palach-Wenceslas Square
So the OFFICERS name is ARAZ ALALI?! That’s the kind of police we want,eh? And we wonder how things like the Navy Yard happen?
Police Officer Araz Alali (NRPD): Numerous issues, dismissed, sued City for racism
Makes you wonder if this guy, who was alive and talking on the lawn but dead soon after also heard the same voices as that woman and the Navy Yard guy.
With tighter gun control and 0bamacare, tragedies like this will cease.
he figured he’d put 0bamacare to the test...
and it delivered.
Inventor Barry Soetoro, aka B. Hussein Obama, has decreed that his BARRYCADES (Tm) shall be used in outdoor Park, outdoor Monument, and outdoor Mall settings.
However, details have been secretly emerging of past and future plans for Barrycade investments.
Construction of larger Barrycades to be used on the US Mexican Border had to be canceled when the income from the Fast and Furious uncontrolled gun control investment went the way of all other Obamanation investments.
Potential construction of Barrycades to be placed on Obamas Red Line in Syria is currently being jointly studied by the US Military, and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Vladamir Putin.
Ambassador Dennis Rodman, no relation to Mrs. Bill Clinton, is rumored to be trying to put together a syndicate of his best friends to provide funding for the construction of these Red Line Barrycades.
North Korea spokesmen would not confirm or deny this rumor.
Yep, those were the days, back before The Internet when we didn't know what was really going on. We've got things under control now.
Somebody set himself on fire Friday at the National Mall? I haven’t heard a peep about this.
If he went to the trouble of videotaping his opus, you would think he first explained what this was all about. Is he protesting Obamacare?
