The daughter of a man who crashed his plane into an IRS building in Texas says her father chose the wrong method to express legitimate grievances and is not a hero.

Joe Stack's adult daughter, Samantha Dawn Bell, told The Associated Press 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 U.S. tax system "without doing what he did."
