Schizo Sets Himself on Fire Outside Trump Trial Courthouse to Protest “Secret Kleptocracy”

This isn’t really an interesting news story, it’s just sensational.

Schizos are a thing. There are a lot of things you could say about schizos, but a schizo doing a thing is not important.

The Guardian:

A man has died after setting himself on fire outside the New York courthouse where Donald Trump’s hush-money trial is taking place.

The New York City police department said on Saturday the man had been declared dead by staff at an area hospital.

Officials had said earlier the man, who was in his late 30s, was in critical condition.

The New York police department said the man, who they identified as Max Azzarello of St Augustine, Florida, did not appear to be targeting Trump or others involved in the trial.

Witnesses said the man pulled pamphlets out of a backpack and threw them in the air before he doused himself with a liquid and set himself on fire on Friday. One of those pamphlets included references to “evil billionaires” but portions that were visible to a Reuters witness did not mention Trump.

The media isn’t really covering the story, presumably because there is no angle.

They will maybe cite the story in the future when calling for a further crackdown on free speech, saying “conspiracy theories cause otherwise totally normal people to go set themselves on fire for no reason.”

On the reverse side, you could claim that the media is driving people insane with all of their hysteria.

But the truth is, there are 350 million people in America, and weird stuff is just going to happen.
