Man Flies Plane into Texas IRS Building - February 19th 2010, 01:00 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.


>(CNN) -- A portrait is beginning to emerge of Joseph Andrew Stack, the man officials believe set his house on fire and then intentionally crashed his small aircraft into an office building in Austin, Texas.

>Stack, 53, owns a Piper Cherokee PA-28, according to aviation records, and federal officials believe that is the plane that crashed into the building.

>A message on a software company Web site registered to Stack appears to be a suicide note.

>"If you're reading this, you're no doubt asking yourself, 'Why did this have to happen?' " the message says. "The simple truth is that it is complicated and has been coming for a long time."

Now, for anyone who's interested, below is the note he left behind in PDF form. I strongly suggest you read it.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

I really have nothing to say to this. He was pissed at the irs, so he flew a plane into a building? That's not right bright, unfortunately he took his life, I fell for his family, and for the family of the person killed.

Not to sound like a creeper, but his manifesto (or whatever you want to call it) is pretty interesting. I find it astounding that he employed his dislike and hate in such a form, something so clearly anti-American, you could say. I also don't understand how he thought attempting to kill his wife and child would help anything. I'm guessing he thought he was "protecting" them.

I would also like to point out the heroics of the window/glass company that had workers helping people climb out of windows. That is just all kinds of awesome and represents the beauty of our country.

A really interesting read. I don't know about government and all that stuff, so I can't can't say whether I agree with him or not, but I can agree from his point of view. He didn't have to take people down with him, but if he crashed into the IRS building and no one gets harmed, then I think that'd be much more awesome. Curse you, IRS! Here's my flesh!

Sad that it had to come to this, but my sympathies extend to the man in question and those close to him, not the building of thieves he crashed into.
