I think it’s funny that this kid is old enough commit felony assault, but not old enough to be named.

I was on Amtrak in Dec, headed to LA. Around El Paso, I heard a couple of bangs under my car and then the side. Later I was told that kids threw something under the train and rocks at the side. A lady that rides the train a lot told me that it happens more frequently than people know. Coming back, we had so many pit stops. An employee would have to get off the train, and check the tracks and then he would get on as we passed and walk back to the front. People wonder why the train can’t stay on schedule.

Those are electric diesels, correct? GE makes a fine mini-gun, that I’m sure could be adapted to fit a locomotive. This should present a few problems to any troublemakers on the tracks.

in a more enlightened era, they would have been shot as train robbers.

Thugs. They should be treated as such. Welcome to jail.

Hmmm...if the train had kept moving at, say, 5-10 mph, I bet the “yutes” would’ve gotten out of the way!

I saw a news clip where a train engineer kept his head low as he entered Chicago. He said sometimes people lined up and pelted stones and shot at them. I guess it was considered a “sport”.

Since this involves employees of a railroad, isn’t this a federal crime?
