You are a clueless idiot. Now it is the rairoads fault when people commit suicide?

You are a sick individual to use someones death to get another poke at the LIRR.

Hit the guy while going 80mph? That must have hurt. Or maybe it didn't.

When incidents like this happen in Japan they just hose down the track and send the cleanup bill to the next of kin.

I hate working in the city, always have and just want to get to and from work as painlessly as possible, so for all of you out there in topix land, living on southern Long Island and contemplating suicide please PLEASE ...

#1) do it on the Hicksville Westbury Line Nobody cares that you want to kill yourself but we do care when we have to put in over 12 hrs a day because mommy doesnt love you anymore

#2) kill yourself on the weekend, we all know you suck and are worthless you dont have to remind us by delaying our commute constantly, just please think of god and jesus and they will help you through the week, then when its saturday night and your home alone again because no one likes you, then take your sorry butt out to the tracks and finish it all.

Although the trains are kept nice and warm inside, if someone selfishly decides to end his/her life by jumping in front of a train you can expect to spend at least an hour standing in the parking lot of a train station. It was wicked cold in Wyandanch yesterday, and the wind was howling.

Riders, please take my advice and wear a coat...not a jacket.

I feel so sorry for those souls who felt they had no one to turn to, they forgot they were God Childrens and was not alone.

Oh please, why should anyone have sympathy for someone who throws themselves in front of a passenger train. Talk about selfish.

What is this world coming to when people think it's okay to throw themselves in front of a train as a means of suicide, thereby inconveniencing hundreds of people? What happened to the good old gun in the mouth, or hose in the tailpipe method?

In your eyes, we are heartless for not honoring these fools who choose to take their own lives? Why are you not angry with these two people who didn't honor their own lives and families enough to seek counseling, instead choosing to commit the ultimate selfish act of suicide? Why are we responsible for feeling sorry for these people? God helps those who help themselves. I have no sympathy for people who take the easy way out, on someone else's time.

I wonder why God lets this happen? Why does God let them get so depressed that they feel they have to take their own lives?

I feel sorry for the engineers driving the train. They are right there in the front and see this and have to live with them selves after they hit someone. Even if it is not their fault.

They also forgot that sleeping pills or a bread knife would have done the trick without stranding thousands of commuters.
