Joe Stack was a Hero: Says Daughter Samantha Bell. Joe Stack left the world in shock and awe when he crashed a small place into the Echelon building in Austin, Texas. What was first thought to be a suicide attempt later revealed itself to be a premeditated attack on the IRS office.
Joe Stack left evidence of his plan in a letter that was found on his website which was later taken down on request by the FBI. His Daughter, Samantha Bell is now coming forward to talk about her father and in fact she believes that he was a hero. Joe Stack succeeded in bringing the focus on the government policies that strip the middle class man of whatever he has left and give ease only to big corporations.
Bell gave her two cents to the New York Daily News when she said,Â “I think too many people lay around and wait for things to happen. But if nobody comes out and speaks up on behalf of injustice, then nothing will ever be accomplished. I have many cases of people I know that are suffering in the hands of the government and people literally dying because they are not getting the help they need.”
Samantha Bell did however admit that although her father was right in trying to get the issue attention, the mode he chose was terribly wrong. His plan resulted in not only his death but the death and injuries of several other people. There was no reason for his frustration and angst to hurt innocent people and take their lives.
What do you think folks, was Joe Stack right or wrong in crashing a plane into the IRS building?
