David Buckel burned himself to death in New York's Prospect Park on Saturday.
David Buckel burned himself to death in New York's Prospect Park on Saturday.

A ***8220;green***8221; activist who was a pioneering lawyer for gay and transgender rights ***8212; including in the notorious ***8220;Boys Don***8217;t Cry***8221; **** murder case ***8212; committed suicide by setting himself on fire Saturday morning in Brooklyn***8217;s Prospect Park in a grisly act of protest against the ecological destruction of the Earth.

David Buckel, 60, left behind a charred corpse and a typed suicide note that said he was burning himself to death using ***8220;fossil fuel***8221; to reflect how mankind was likewise killing itself, police sources said.

He left the note in a manila envelope marked ***8220;To The Police,***8221; recovered from inside a black metal pushcart he discarded at the scene.

***8220;Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result,***8221; Buckel wrote in his note, which he also sent to the New York Times.

***8220;My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves.***8221;


He added, ***8220;Honorable purpose in life invites honorable purpose in death.***8221;

Passers-by were horrified to see Buckel***8217;s burned remains.

***8220;It was just lying there, on its back, knees slightly bent like someone would lie on the sand at the beach,***8221; said Irena Ryjova, 44, a rollerblader who passed by at about 7 a.m., less than an hour after the immolation.

***8220;It***8217;s a shock; it***8217;s a shame,***8221; said mom Dana Lall as she shepherded a crowd of Catholic-school kids past the horrific scene, en route to a baseball game.

As a senior attorney with Lambda Legal defense, Buckel was a lead lawyer in a 2000 lawsuit on behalf of transgender ***8220;Boys Don***8217;t Cry***8221; ****-murder victim Brandon Teena, helping the family recover additional damages from neglectful Nebraska law enforcement.

The 1999 movie earned Hilary Swank an Oscar for her portrayal of Teena.

***8220;It***8217;s a very important case, not only within Nebraska but nationally,***8221; Buckel had told the Daily Nebraskan newspaper in 2001, *after helping win an $80,000 judgment
So he protested a warming planet, by starting a fire.

The world would be a better place if all nations signed into the global agreement to increase the number of lawyers who purposely set themselves on fire.
