They cant even 86 right. Why cause problems for those who have to clean up the mess. You want to do yourself put your nose in an electrical outlet or inhale deeply next to an insurance salesman. The demons doing their thing no doubt. Too bad. Was this better?

I have a question for you. I have seen you post about the LIRR before. Do you have a personal problem with them? Did something happen to you? Im just curious.

Were you fired from the LIRR? Or was your wife killed by a LIRR train and you simply refuse to accept that it was suicide?

Hmmm, guess the media giving false reports don't like it when the truth comes out that the railroads lead them around by the peckers.

Obviously you know nothing of the LIRR other than what you read. The LIRR is a commuter rail and has their own rules and regulations. I guess you think the RR should have set the parking brake and keep the steering wheel turned on the runnaway train . 80 mph Ha that's a joke.

It could of been someone you knew, without any warning. Yea it sucks that it's such an inconvience to the many of you. Who are on here bitching, but what if this person were someone who was one of your family a loved one such as your father or mother or your spouse,maybe your brother or sister or someone who was an old friend way back in elementary school, either way its sad to think that at a mere inconvience to your daily commute for one day or an hour, that this person was so selfless that he hit such rock bottom to end there life in such a tragic manner. It could of been someone you once knew without any warning or any signs. Your here for another day, and I hope you slip on a patch of ice on a train platform ooops guess what the rest of you are standing out in the cold again while they clean up.

You're being far more mean spirited than we are. You're wishing death upon people you disagree with. Nobody here wished death upon the guy who killed himself, he was already dead by his own volition.

How you could possibly call suicide a selfless act is beyond me, however with your odd sense of logic, I'm not even going to try and figure it out.

And get this through your heads, anyone who thinks this sort of thing is a mere inconvenience to the commuters. It can be, but it isn't always.

What about the guy who is late for work and loses his job because he has a boss who couldn't care less why he was late? What about the guy who missed a sales meeting and lost out earning a commission check because of this? What about the person who is on that train because of an emergency phone call, calling him or her to a school to pick up an injured child, or to the hospital because someone he/she loved was hurt in a car accident? What about all the passengers on the train, all of whom have their own safety potentially jeopardized by these suicidal idiots if for example an attempt to stop led to a train accident or passengers being thrown etc?

That's why suicide is selfish. It leaves the people still living wondering why and feeling guilty. Asking themselves how could they not have known? Thinking maybe they could have prevented it had they only done this or that.

What a crappy parting gift to all those left behind.

One of those people was my friend. It sucks that your train was delayed (I know, we all hate inconveniences), but the fact is I lost a friend and I rather you be delayed 2 hours (with your safety intact)and have my friend alive still. Life is F'd up. I dont know why he did it. Just feel lucky you still have your health along with your family and friends.

Cheers

So Mr. Pines-alot, you REALLY, REALLY think the train JUMPED off the track, killed these people in the street and re-railed itself? You have some imagination. How about this: The people killed were on the tracks where they DO NOT BELONG. The train has every right to be there - the people do not. You are making a total ass out of yourself with your moronic nonsense that you post. Do you also think that General Motors, Toyota and every other car manufacturer out there are murderers too since they make cars that kill people when drunk drivers are behind the wheel? Oh, be careful when you sleep at night in your bed - a train may come down your block and run you over right in your bedroom, go back out on the street down to the tracks and rerail itself.

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.
Actually I'm pretty sure the LIRR is responsible. In the thought process: Get on the Train, or commit suicide.... commit suicide is starting to gain ground. I can see why.

P.S. To the fat cow on the 3:46pm from Penn who has the most obnoxious, loud, and annoying voice...STFU !!!! You sound like a bad parody of a long island accent, and it can be heard in the whole car. Nobody want's to hear about your c-section, or your body waxing (ugh), and we most certainly do not want to hear you sing your horrible version of "Baby it's cold outside" which consists of the line "Baby it's cold outside" and only that line repeated over and over. YOU SUCK!!!

The formula --- If payouts A are less than safety equipment B than C screw the dead people. Railroads must love you idiots covering their butts costing jobs.
