Suicide Plane Crash in Texas

Joseph Stack, a 53 years old man and computer software engineer who was said to be troubled by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) which is a US Tax agency. He opted to commit suicide yesterday shortly after he sent a message in his website to express his troubled mind with IRS which he referred them as thugs and other sorts of accusations, and later on after some hours, he set fire to his house before leaving the house and heading to Georgia airport.Photo above: Joseph Stack's home

Mr Stack who owned a single engine aircraft, used it to fulfill his mission by deliberately crashed himself to the US tax building where the IRS office are located.

At Georgetown airport, where he started his last journey, he didn't fill the flight plan. On his cruise he flew in a low range but permitted where you can fly without communicating to the control towers.

Some eyewitness saw a small aircraft with only a single pilot crashed into the building.

It has been said 3 people have died at the incident including the pilot.

No much details is available.

According to MSNBC, several other people were treated at the scene and 2 had to be rushed to hospital with critical injuries.

So leaves the loss of life to himself and other innocent people. So the loss of properties etc etc. But who's to be blamed?
