Lawyer Sets Himself On Fire At Brooklyn Park In Protest Suicide


A prominent lawyer died after setting himself on fire in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on Saturday.

David Buckel, 60, killed himself after sending messages to multiple news outlets, including The New York Times, explaining his intention to set himself on fire to protest the world’s usage of fossil fuels at the expense of the environment.

“Pollution ravages our planet, oozing inhabitability via air, soil, water and weather,” Buckel wrote the Times in an email. “Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result — my early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves.”

  1. א גרויסע אויסווארף, א רשע מרושע איז ער געווען, מסית ומדיח, חוטא ומחטיא


    A big toeivanik and toeivah activist

    The opposite of a tzaddik.

    And the liberal media wants to make it like he was a tzaddik, a korban?


    • He finally realized that he has no children, and nothing to live for anymore, so he decided to go out in a blaze.

      • There are people without children who are great tzadikim, who do many mitzvos.

        This guy was rasha merusha. Maybe he had AIDS, maybe he was having multiple conflicts with fellow teoiva reshoim.

  2. As if this self-emollation wasn’t an act of useless burning of fossil fuel. He must have been a highly successful attorney.

  3. In a way Commiting suicide is a benefit for him because he stopped being a toeiva sinner. One less sin in this world is better for him. It’s like a nazi commiting suicide and thus commiting less sins.

  4. Wow!!! What an inspirational act!! Message received- now people will jump off bridges so as not to pollute the air while they commit suicide.
