    Man sets himself on fire in Akron after post-election rant

    A Vietnam veteran is being treated for burns after he set himself on fire in Akron Saturday morning. 
    Police say the man ranted about post-election protests before dousing himself in gasoline.
    According to Akron police, around 9:15 a.m. a 69-year-old man, dressed in a U.S. Marine Corps uniform, walked into Angel Falls Coffee on South Highland Avenue and began raving about the recent protests.
    The man then went outside, flagged down a man, handed him a phone and asked him to videotape something.
    He then grabbed a can of gasoline from his car, doused himself in gasoline and set himself on fire. 
    A witness in a nearby business ran out and extinguished the fire. 
    The man was taken to Akron Children's Hospital to be treated in the burn unit. He is currently in stable condition.
