Andrew Stack had had enough and decided to take his own life and to make a statement at the same time. Thankfully none of the innocent have lost their lives.

He did leave behind a testament which makes sad reading. Fox News.

Some of what Stack has written will strike a chord in the heart of many a person dealing with the aftermath of the banking bailout.

I remember reading about the stock market crash before the “great” depression and how there were wealthy bankers and businessmen jumping out of windows when they realized they screwed up and lost everything. Isn’t it ironic how far we’ve come in 60 years in this country that they now know how to fix that little economic problem; they just steal from the middle class (who doesn’t have any say in it, elections are a joke) to cover their asses and it’s “business-as-usual”. Now when the wealthy fuck up, the poor get to die for the mistakes… isn’t that a clever, tidy solution.

It's an interesting observation. As to whether it's true or not I don't know but it's certainly an observation that feels right.

He carries on:

The communist creed: From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.
The capitalist creed: From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.
How many Stacks will we see before we get a fair system in this world?
