I am writing this from Burbank while in nearby Glendale (a scant few miles), a deranged asshole caused a Metrolink commuter train to derail, killing several people and injuring hundreds more. How, you ask? He placed his car on the track, in an apparent attempt to commit suicide. Then, didn’t have the balls to go through with it and jumped out of the car, leaving it on the tracks.
The asshole, identified as Juan Manuel Alvarez, 25, of Compton, CA, apparently got out of the car in time to watch the train hit it, derail and then hit another Metrolink train and then crash into a parked Union Pacific train. So now, instead of ending his own pathetic excuse for a life quietly at home in the bathtub with a toaster, he will most likely be charged with murder and probably end up with life in prison.
Sorry if I seem harsh or uncaring but this kind of shit really gets to me sometimes. I’ll try to walk it off.
Have a nice day.
