Immolating yourself on the courthouse steps to underscore your belief that you were wrongfully separated from your wife and denied custody of your children is the ultimate self-refutation.

Especially if your posthumously published terrorist manifesto incites others to torch police stations and courthouses with Molotov cocktails.

Surely, no reads that a guy burnt himself alive in the public square and thinks, "Those stupid bureaucrats said he was unstable. Shows what they know."
