And the lame stream media has buried yet another story of a man pushed past his limit by a corrupt system. We have become a country ruled by regulation and not legislation. Look for more of this in the future I am kind of surprised he took the gas can and lighter route instead of the old rifle in the bell tower. The man sent a very detailed letter to the newspaper telling exactly why he was doing what he did and it was loaded with documentation showing how the system has been twisted and we are being ruled by policies and not laws. The system just passes those caught up in it through and nobody will take responsibility for making a decision. The whole system was rigged against this man from the start and he had no recourse.

Funny how the so called media had the whole story sent to them and chose not to report it much less do an investigation.

Some of the sheep are waking up and not all of them will be venting their rage on themselves.

Ya know if this was the only guy who ever took his own life because of the evil family courts that would be one thing. Thousands of men every year commit suicide because the courts alienate them from their family/children. I know all too well the pain this guy felt.The people who say he was a deadbeat don't have the slightest clue to reality and the message he was sending. Thomas Ball will live forever w/ me. The abuse from the courts must end or there will be a lot more Mr. Ball's! Lets take back the power that these monsters oops I mean Judges have over destroying the father/child relationship. That my friends is EXACTLY what this was all about, and anyone who says or defends otherwise is a man hating idiot.
