The so-called sheriff use like a special chant hopping on one leg with a finger up the nostril, a crystal ball, a physic, a world wide median, or they are just use to making jury tampering statements hinting suicide which the media reprints the hear-say garbage? How the hell would the sheriff know what blew, what braked, what the man didi?

Who gives a damn what the killer railroad says who """Deliberately """ ran on greed, didn't have fences, video monitors, or track guards ran the poor man down like a dog with a train going too fast with no steering and sucky brakes? Just one of a 1,000 killings this year when the clueless press prints the horn blew, the brakes locked up, but not IN TIME which is MURDER since the railroad knew the problem and did NOTHING.
