#4 I wonder if the “REALLY BAD IDEA” idiot light comes on in the same split second when jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge, climbing into the enclosure to pet the polar bears or setting yourself on fire on the WH lawn? Trouble is we will never know.

#6 No note of why. I’m guessing it was an accident of some kind because who does this sort of thing then leaves everyone guessing why?

#11 tw, shock is a hell of a thing

I didn’t think of that, chris.

Breitbart agrees with JohnQC that he’s dead:

Arnav Gupta of Bethesda Maryland self-immolated near 15th Street and Constitution Ave., located south of the White House around 12:20 p.m. EST, U.S. Secret Serice officials said. National Park Service and U.S. Park Police provided first aid to the individual and was rushed to a nearby hospital shortly after.

U.S. Park Police announced in an earlier Thursday morning statement that Gupta succumbed to his injuries on Wednesday evening.

The Montgomery County Police Department said in a Facebook post that Gupta was last seen by members of his family when leaving his residence at 9:20 a.m. EST.

Police spokesman Sgt. Eduardo Delgado said police have not identified a motive.
