A crazed man sets himself on fire near the White House causing damage to 85% of his body. But why though? 

TMZ reports that this man set himself on fire at a park near the White House. He was only rescued when officers showed up and extinguished the flames. Details say he might have been wearing a protective suit, but fire is fire. It'll only protect you for so long.

It's unclear what his condition is right now, but he was rushed to the hospital shortly after the cops put out the flames. Now, if you're confused on why this man decided to set himself ablaze that's something we don't know right now. I feel like a sign would have been a more effective way of communicating with people.  Setting yourself on fire might be a tad bit too extreme.
