The Akron Fire Department says that a 69-year-old man set himself on fire Saturday after yelling about the election results in a local coffee shop.
The department says the man, who was dressed in a U.S. Marine Corps uniform, walked into Angel Falls Coffee on South Highland Ave. yelling about the recent protests over the election results.
He then left the coffee shop, grabbed a can of gasoline from his car and set himself on fire. A witness in a nearby business ran out and extinguished the flames.
The man was taken to an area hospital where he is being treated in the burn unit. His condition is unknown at this time.

There’s a fine line between suicide and genius.
There are many times I’ve cursed humanity.
But I won’t give up.

Geez. I think this goes well beyond stupid. The guy must have been psychotic or something.
