There was some kid in my hometown, he got hit by a train while trying to cross the railroad tracks, his body flew like 60 feet. If someone was in their own little world, caring more about what song was playing in their CD player, than to be focused on what might be in front of them, hey, you cant argue that they were going to be on this earth any longer. Theres people with common sense, and those that lack it. All Im saying is thats natural selection at work. Do you ever look both ways when crossing the road? Exactly. These people obviously never picked that up in elementary school.
Hell, if I died a stupid death, I'd want people to make fun of me.

Your comments reflect the psychological issues you have, have u ever tried getting help? maybe thats what you need. Your suicidal words speak for the ignored emotions you hide inside. I feel sorry for you, Nothing you say can affect Anthony for he is with God, but you, I'd rather not say much, just that you seem satanic and gloomy all the dark horrible things of this world roam make up your heart, seek pyscho help

how can any of you sit there and judge him?
No one deserves to die and especially Anthony.
He was an amazing person who could have gone on
to do better things.
People make mistakes. Everyone is guilty of
j-walking. and doing other illegal things.
BUT tell me why you're to fast to judge him?
He died. That's the only difference between you and him.
And he was probably a better person than any
of the people out there who feel obligated to
judge him without even knowing him.
RIP Anthony Rea.
I love and miss you!

To the forum moderator(s): shame, shame, shame be upon you for deleting the posts regarding "natural selection". Either the people will have free speech, or you will have yourself a fascist forum, and you have clearly made the latter choice.

To those who are crying about humanity: do not forget that humans are just one of millions of species of animal on this planet, and are bound by the same biological processes. We all must eat, sleep and excrete just as other animals; why must we not also be bound to the rules of natural selection?

You say this is not fair? As humans, should we raise a generation of children that pay no attention to their own personal safety? How, then, is this fair to the human race? How are we to survive as a species if our offspring throw themselves directly into harm's way?

shut up seriously. you aren't related to him. (to those of you who are bashing what happened). He was my cousin and im hurt by all of the comments you put and im trying to cope with this but when people try to put science and what not in it its even harder. and don't tell me not to read them okay i will. leave his death alone and let him rest in peace. grow up.

Yes Darwin, but luckily for most of the HUMAN SPECIES we have the ability to FEEL and show compassion and not intentionally try to hurt other humans especially when they are already hurting because they have lost a loved one. This was a 15 year old boy who should have been paying attention and didnít even if you thought he deserved to die WHY IN THE heck would you say that in a forum where family and friends might happen across it, why would you be so cruel? I donít understand what purpose this served and how this made you feel better, because you got to say some cruel words about a dead kid, did it make you feel more like a man? Is that how you get off? Itís sad that you hide behind free speech just to be mean!

Caltrain proximity is only slightly similar to hometown freight-train proximity -- the freight-train operators are lonely. [in Stuart, FL]
