Just seeing this reported on FB, apparently someone parked a white van outside LH and poured petrol over himself but fell off the roof as the Guards were trying to get him to change his mind.
These are damn tough times for a lot of people with things continuing to get worse by the day.

I'm sorry but no sane person would do that. Off to the Psychotherapist me thinks.

Correct, the guy clearly needs help. I doubt it'll stop TwoSeats from determining exactly what the guy was thinking, though.

Desperation can force the sanest of people to do the most crazy things.
He has enough fuel for the van and dousing himself in. And a working van. Can't be too badly off that he sets himself on fire.

Perhaps it was one of the Roma annoyed about the lack of job opportunities.

I hope this guy gets some help and some relief from whatever problems he has. With that said, governments can't be expected to make decisions based on people threatening violence to either themselves or others.
