If this isn’t an allegory for the government’s treatment of us lately, I don’t know what is:
Jason Jones, 29, walked into the police station and sparked a “confrontation with officers.” The man stripped his clothing off and doused himself with hand sanitizer. Chief Dave Darling, a former State Police senior investigator, said officers tased Jones to subdue him.
The combination of electricity from the taser and the flammable liquid caused the man to ignite into flames.
“I think they were afraid he was going to hurt himself, and that’s what started it,” Darling told the Times Union.
They set him on fire to keep him from hurting himself.
Wasn’t that thoughtful of them? Sort of like how the government had reacted to the Wuhan China Virus (among many other things).
We can rest easy knowing that our benevolent government overlords have our best interests at heart as they burn the economy down around us.
