He killed himself on the steps of Town Hall

http://eureka.news/free-parking-71/

He killed himself on the steps of Town Hall. Like the self-immolating monks in Saigon, he killed himself as a cry out to humanity to stop a dreadful wrong. Jeremy Richman, father of 6 year-old Aviel who was murdered at Sandy Hook, was the third suicide of mass murder survivors in one week. Two were teenagers who survived the Parkland massacre.

Their deaths came on the heels of another mass shooting; this time in New Zealand. The humanity, compassion and swift action taken by their Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern contrasted so sharply to the response here that their grief, despair and hopelessness engulfed them. Jeremy Richman hoped that by his suicide, the leaders and representatives of our country would at least take note. They haven’t.

A mafia mob boss in New Jersey was murdered last week by a young white man who came into court flashing white power signs and white supremacist symbols written on his body. He stated that he was inspired by Trump and his attorneys plan to use that as his defense.

If they aren't moved by the appalling deaths of innocent children, probably nothing will. It's disgusting and depressing.

Thank you for your efforts, WhiteTara.

His statement made through chosing this place becomes even more intense, unmistakable.

May this suffering, innocent man finally rest in peace.

He was so greatly sinned against by U.S. monsters after his unbearable tragedy.

I know of some people who are extremely ill and need the ACA. They are terminal and if the ACA is killed they plan on doing the same thing but at different locations. They figure that they have nothing to lose so they might as well make a statement to help others.
