Just goes to show you. They put this in the news and it gives people the idea "that's what I can do"!

Last night a freind & I sat & waited for an officer for 1 1/2 hours. After calling 911 3x's to report a low hanging power line. We were freezing, but didn't want anyone to drive into it. Finally they showed up, after I had already put markers on the wire to make it more visable. Turns out the police were there earlier that day, you would think they would have put the flagging on it then...

P.S.

If I wanted to kill myself, I'd try to do it in the most attractive and least embarrassing way possible. Being splattered all over the front of a train is not the way I'd want anyone to see me (unless I was trying to make a statement). How about a drug overdose? That doesn't cause too much physical trauma. Drinking a bottle of bleach would do it, too. Bleeding out from the wrists would also save your family the heartache of having to only identify a whole body, not pieces of one.

I hope these suggestions were helpful for the next idiot who decides to jump in front of a train.

Why is anyone defending these two people? They wanted to die. Good-bye. They were selfish enough to kill themselves, leave family and friends to wonder why and then hold up thousands of people on their way to a productive life. Good riddance.

My neighbor is a conductor and my brother-in-law is an engineer. They have both had the horror of seeing someone on the tracks, but not being able to stop in time. I wish people who were considering suicide would consider the irreperable damage their actions does not just to their families but to absolute strangers.

Don't know what that has to do with 2 people committing suicide...but big deal, was it so difficult for you to leave a warning marker of some sort 'til repair crews got there.

I'd like to say thanks to these two jerks for screwing up my commute. My train was over an hour late. If you want to kill yourselves use a gun, p*ssies.

He is not a moron just one of my patients that escaped from the loony bin. He is upset because he is not allowed to play with his trains anymore.

Well there's no one holding a gun to the train drivers head that is going too fast with sucky brakes and no steering with NO safety appliances huh?
If they felt soooo sorry the trains would shut down till the proper fences, track security guards, video monitoring equipment, motion alarms, etc... were in place.

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.
But they made a MISTAKE!! WEEP!! WEEP!!

Did it ever occur to you that the passengers of these trains have lives of their own? Children in day care waiting to be picked up? Sick parents in hospitals? Jobs to go to? Job interviews to get to?

Save your "have a heart" platitudes for the living.
