I work in Chicago. I take the metra train everyday. For at least 15 year. I live in the Joliet area. I know the conductors and at least 50 passengers on the rock.

Why do you want my address?

I would give it to you but then I am thinking "good" for you and your family's well being and will not disclose it.

Honestly, I just wrote that that because I was just shocked at many of your comments. Even though it may have been interpreted as a threat, there was no actual intention.

I just can't believe how cold hearted you were. As an outsider looking in on this tragedy, what did you have to gain by writing such awful things to his family and friends? You'd think you would just stop after one or two comments, but you were persistent...just one knife jab after another...

That extra hour or two on the train that day must have really gotten to you...

Either way, I'm a bit shocked that you even responded to this... Do you come back to this thread periodically just to look at what you wrote? Maybe you need to read it every so often just so you can pat yourself on the back. I can see you talking to yourself in your cube...'Boy Tom, you really showed this family up. Not only did their friend die, but I just kept kicking them while they were down. I am so great. I can't wait for another train tragedy so I can berate his or her family and friends too!

You suck. I look forward to you writing back and spewing thoughts and facts that only matter to assholes.

Well Bob...(not family members),

I was no longer an outsider when it had effects on everyone at the train station and the following trains that day.

I have the right to spread the truth. It is insulting to read people blaming Metra or the city of Tinley Park when they themselves were "outsiders" and had no idea of the real facts of the incident.

Then we'll call this issue closed. It's been a pleasure conversing with you.
Take care.
