"They took it as a person who got hit by a train."

Lt. Michael Olivieri sounds like a really smart cop. I wonder what his first clue might have been?

They made it pretty clear. They took it as a simple case of a person who was hit by a train rather than a suicidal person deliberately stepping in front of a train. Too bad you didn't catch that clue.

You must have missed the first half of the sentence, it explained what the second half of the sentence meant. You sound like a really smart reader. Maybe it would have been better if Lt. Michael Olivieri spelled it out for you. Oh, wait, he did, and you still didn't get it.

OK-who killed him "after hit by a train"? Or is the train the perpetrator of the crime? Hmmmm, sounds to me like another idiot rag reporter (they call them "journalist" sometimes). To the fools that pay money for a subscription to this illiterate piece of toilet paper!

Okay Einstein, if the headline doesn't make it clear enough for you, then try reading the very first sentence of the article. Or look at it this way. The train hit him. It caused massive injuries. He was killed by those injuries right after he was hit. He died from those injuries or the injuried ended his life. The injuries killed him. Sure it would have sounded better if they had said in the headline what they said in the first sentence. But the more intelligent readers of the article understood what they meant in both the headline and the first sentence anyway. They had no reason to scratch their heads and seem confused.

Lol, anybody with half a brain would have understood exactly what they meant by that headline. If the article or writers are illiterate, I would have to say some of the readers seem to be lacking in basic comprehension. No need for the majority of the readers to ponder how he died. They got it the first time. Apparently some don't.

So the guy was killed AFTER he was hit by a train? Or was he killed WHEN he was hit by a train? or did he die after being hit by a train? come on editors! this is ridiculous!

Didn't you read it? It said he died AFTER being hit by a train. Maybe it was a thousanth of a second after or Maybe it was a tenth of a second after, maybe 30 seconds after, or maybe a minute or two after. But it wasn't before. Unless somone was there to examine him seconds after he was hit we shouldn't expect them to know exactly. The only mistake was that it would have better for them to say "Man dies after being hit by train" rather than "killed" or perhaps say "Man dies as a result of being hit by train". In any event you should read past the headline and read the article.

Nothing worth getting upset about. Just a minor posting in an online website. Not the actual newspaper. As for myself, I'm much more concerned that a grieving family has lost a loved one in a tragic accident. It would be superficial to worry about a mistake in wording on a FREE online website.

Perhaps he was dead before the train squished him. Some La Raza's may have killed him and subsequently put his dead body on the R.R. tracks to trick Lt. Michael Olivieri and the rest of the Pomona Police Dept. nimrods to make them look like a bunch of nimrods.

P.S.'oh wait','Compak','afterhours' and 'GRIMREAPER' want to hold a special memorial service for Mr. Bernal's squished o-ring.
