Man Dies After Setting Himself on Fire Outside Manhattan Courthouse During Trump Trial

A man from St. Augustine, Florida, tragically passed away after setting himself on fire outside the Manhattan courthouse during Donald Trump’s trial. Identified as Maxwell Azzarello, 37, he made a dramatic entrance into Collect Pond Park, right across from the courthouse.

Eyewitnesses saw Azzarello distributing pamphlets in the park before lighting himself on fire. He aimed to protest what he called a “totalitarian con” involving cryptocurrency, alleging that both political parties are controlled by financial criminals.

While authorities investigate, this incident highlights the urgency some feel to expose perceived corruption. It also raises questions about broader societal issues.
