Texas Feb 23: The daughter of a man who crashed his plane into an Internal Revenue Service building in Texas says her father chose the wrong method to express legitimate grievances and is not a hero

Joe Stack’s daughter, Samantha Dawn Bell, told AP on Monday from her home in Norway that she understands her father’s animosity toward a "faulty" and "unbalanced" American tax system. But she says he should have found "a completely different way" to address it.

Authorities say the 53-year-old Stack targeted the building in Austin last week, killing an employee and himself,after posting online an anti-government manifesto.   

Bell says Stack should have used the 3,000-word note to encourage Americans to address the problems he saw in the US tax system "without doing what he did."

Violence is not the solution for any problem. We must always remember what the father of the nation said during our freedom struggle. Our elders have to be our role models and violence is not what we need to learn.

Good that the girl isn’t standing up for her father when she knows that he resorted to wrong means.She’s truly courageous to have passed such an unbiased judgement
