P.C. kills. Letting minorities of every kind take jobs they are not capable of doing to prove how tolerant the federal government is has proved to be disastrous once again.

I’m thinking; What if this was a suicide attempt similar to the successful suicide and mass murder by the Germanwings co-pilot?

Is it any surprise that someone with a mental disorder that is associated with “bug chasing” would do something like this?

Bostian was also involved in a gay marriage protest in 2012, according to this Midtown Gazette story.

Brandon Bostian, a recent transplant to New York, attended the event. Bostian was active in the Proposition 8 fight, which defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman, in San Francisco. While he is still interested in working for marriage equality, Bostian admitted that he is less enthusiastic this time around. “It’s kind of insulting to have to beg people for my right to marry,” he said. “I feel like we shouldn’t even have to have this fight.”

Hey folks, unless it is directly involved, don't even mention it. Really.

The question isn't one of his preferences or beliefs, and if you make it one, he will use 'persecution' for those preferences or beliefs as a defense.

Instead, the questions are:

Why was the train going 106 mph there??

and

Why did it take so long for the engineer to hit the brakes?

Stick to the basic problem unless other factors contributed to it.

Remember, Bill Clinton ducked charges of Perjury and Obstruction of Justice because the media made the whole issue to be 'just about sex'.

Exactly. Focus on the issue at hand.

Otherwise, you become as irrelevant as those blaming this on “infrastructure”.

If so, I’d call it serious overkill. There sure are a lot of people comitting suicide the last year. I don’t think the hopey and changy thing is working out too well...

Homosexuals may be discriminated against, socially, but not financially. Their per-capita income is higher than the general population.

*************

Maybe at some point we’ll hear the truth. Hopefully the black box will shed some light.
One guess is that he was occupied with something else besides doing his job.
Maybe reading, watching something on a mobile phone, etc.

Does anyone know how the accelertor woks on these trains? Is it a foot feed
like an auto or a lever that is hand held/set or some other device?

He also says that he “can’t remember” what he was doing prior to the crash.

It’s probably the most advanced locomotive made in America. No excuse for him operating the train at that speed unless there was some kind of mechanical malfunction.
