Yep, I said Immolation!
A man in Knoxville, Tennessee has committed suicide by setting himself on fire in front of his wife.
Michael D McReynolds, 61, was sitting at home with his wife Anna on 1402 Craig Road when he got up, fetched a canister of gasoline from the garage, went to the front yard, covered himself in fuel and set himself alight.
Dying before his wife could unfurl their water hose, Mr McReynold’s suicide was described as a mystery by his widow as he had never indicated any suicidal feelings and said nothing as he went to kill himself…He just silently got up and walked outside and covered himself in gas and took a lighter to himself.
‘I didn’t know he was getting up to do that and it took seconds for the fire to cover him.
‘I think he unhooked the hose too.’…Refuting earlier press reports that her husband had killed himself over money worries, Mrs McReynold’s said that her husband had been working three jobs around the time of his death.
‘We weren’t having finance problems.’ said Mrs McReynolds.
Of course the antis talk a LOT about “Gun Suicide” because they can use that to ban guns. They could give a shit about this guy, because obviously burning to death in the front yard while your wife watches and attempts to put him out isn’t as bad as if he had suck-started a pistol.
Those who use the metric of “Gun Death” really aren’t good people.
