"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," Samantha Bell, Joseph Stack's daughter from his first marriage, told "Good Morning America" in a phone interview that aired Monday morning.Bell's father murdered an IRS worker who was a Vietnam veteran and hoped to kill and wound many more in the office building - there were 200 people who worked at the office which was completely wrecked in the ensuing fire. For that she thinks her father is a hero?
Stack killed Vernon Hunter, a 61-year-old IRS collection agent and a Vietnam veteran, when he steered his small plane on a suicide mission that burned down the Austin office building. He also set his own house ablaze and posted a bitter Internet rant against the IRS, Wall Street, the Catholic Church and corporate "thugs."
Even so, his daughter says he should be respected. Stack is a hero, Bell said, "because now maybe people will listen."
Stack is still a murdering thug who refused to take responsibility for his own situation and blamed everyone else for his own financial shenanigans that led to his business issues in California and tax obligations in California and with the IRS.
It also appears that Bell has the same kind of entitlement attitude as her father - blaming others for her own situation. She claims that Medicaid didn't take care of her when she was pregnant, so she went to Norway - where she pays even higher taxes but claims she gets more for it.
