California Trains Running Even Slower
Due to Homeless on Tracks

Breitbart California, by Chriss W. Street

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/16/2018 11:30:11 AM

California’s terrible commuter rail service speeds and on-time performance are growing worse, due to homeless camps near the tracks and transients wandering on the rails. The Sacramento Bee reports that train engineers are warning system operators and passengers that homeless people wandering on the rails have been hit, and engineers have been forced to slow and make high-speed emergency stops to avoid hitting transients. But even with Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor passenger service, which operates between Sacramento and Silicon Valley, combining with the Union Pacific Railroad freight service on adjacent tracks to report homeless encampments to law enforcement, California’s homeless have

What #1 said. Attach cowcatchers to the front to fling them off the tracks.

Let´s try this again:

If the homeless, or anyone else, don´t see the folly of wandering around railroad tracks, they probably won´t live much longer anyway. How about some common sense?

the Republik of Minnesota has been foisting light rail on us for the last ten years..
gang members going to the Mall of Amerika are pretty much the only riders..
now, the BLMers are stopping even THOSE trains for their "protests"..
and.. the Reds want to bring HIGH SPEED rail here as well..

Last week there was a story on the homeless taking over the train stations, and sometimes camping out on the train cars themselves. My guess is the average citizen will avoid all public transportation if at all possible.

Seems like an entirely self-limiting "problem". Bring back the "homeless catchers" on the front and run the speeds back up.

Yet another reason why high-speed rail will never work in this country - too many stupid people hanging around the tracks.

The answer is Elon Musk´s Hyperloop in which passengers ride in a fully enclosed depressurized tube. That is, until it collides with a shopping cart.

The illegals, hobos, drug addicts, and neer do wells have figured out that the train tracks are outside the jurisdiction of the state and local police.
La Raza has been instructing the Reconquista forces to camp alongside the tracks for quite a while.
They are positioned to completely disrupt all train service by having tens of thousands of them move onto the tracks.
Much of the food you eat comes from CA, this would quickly create major problems for the entire country.

When I had a bum starting to camp out in front of my house, I was told, "it´s not illegal to be homeless." Well, no, but isn´t it illegal to have piles of garbage strewn about on the publix right-of-way? Isn´t it illegal to have human sewage being discharged all over? I know it is if a homeowner tried to pull that carp!

There needs to be a separate process for dealing true homeless (productive members of society, willing to live in a home) and these vagrants (usually drug addicted and often struggling with mental health issues). They´re truly completely different problems.

After a few get ground to hamburger under the wheels, my bet is they´ll not be a problem anymore. I maintain that trains should not be legally responsible for idiots on their tracks.

#16, you should have run the sprinklers frequently, and perhaps get one of those super powerful horns on the can of pressurized gas.
A couple of shots every hour or two would probably help them to decide to move elsewhere.

Lots of ways to make them WANT to leave.

It sounds like the homeless are taking over. This is an insane world we live in..... Insane state I live in. God help us. I like the cow catcher idea. So many of the things we are forced to put up with now, would´ve never been even thought of when I was young. Wow. If someone used your lawn for a bathroom, they´d end up in the looney bin or drunk tank!

A Monday report revealed Matt Rivitz, a San Francisco-based ad executive, as the founder of Sleeping Giants, the anonymous leftist group that organizes social media mobs in an effort to silence conservative voices. According to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s (DCNF) Peter Hasson, Rivitz’s identity as the until-now anonymous founder is confirmed by clues left in Rivitz’s media interviews and social media posts by people in his “social and professional circles.” Rivitz himself long ago deleted his Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as his professional websites. The group’s modus operandi is consistent throughout its campaigns:

The lights went out during a press conference at the White House on Tuesday where President Donald Trump walked back some of his comments that he made at the Helsinki summit. "I have full faith in our intelligence agencies," Trump said near the beginning of the press conference. At that moment, the lights shut off in the room, leading Trump to joke, "That must be the intelligence agencies." "I have full faith and support for America´s great intelligence agencies," Trump continued. "Let me be totally clear in saying ... I accept our intelligence community´s conclusion that Russia´s meddling in the

Disgraceful. Embarrassing. A complete lack of grasp of the situation. Such were the observations about President Trump’s performance at the joint press conference with Vladimir Putin. Everyone is free to like or dislike the way Trump navigates the world, but I would suggest those descriptions are more suited to the swarm of wild overreaction. It has become a familiar rhythm for the President to do or say something, only to be attacked reflexively by his harshest opponents. But the Monday festival of totally wrongheaded analysis ensnared even the occasionally sympathetic. One could expect the bug-eyed calls for

President Trump slammed former CIA Director John Brennan in an interview with Fox News airing Tuesday, after the ex-intelligence chief described Trump´s news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin as "treasonous." "I think Brennan is a very bad guy and if you look at it a lot of things happened under his watch," Trump told Fox News´ Tucker Carlson. "I think he´s a very bad person." The full interview is set to air on Fox News Channel´s "Tucker Carlson Tonight" at 8 p.m. ET.

Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe claimed on Monday that FBI lawyer Lisa Page contradicted many parts of testimony from her colleague and lover Peter Strzok. WATCH: (Video)Page testified for two days behind closed doors about her influence on the FBI’s investigations into Russia and Hillary Clinton’s emails less than one week after Strzok. Strozk denied that texts he exchanged with Page — particularly one promising they would “stop” Trump from becoming president — were indicative of bias that affected the investigations. However, Ratcliffe alleged that Page contradicted Strzok in her testimony and even admitted that the

JOHANNESBURG — Without ever mentioning President Donald Trump by name, former U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday took aim at “strongman politics” in his highest-profile speech since leaving office, urging people around the world to respect human rights and other values now under threat in an impassioned address marking the 100th anniversary of anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela’s birth. Obama’s speech to a cheering crowd of thousands in South Africa countered many of Trump’s policies, rallying people around the world to keep alive the ideas that Mandela worked for including democracy, diversity and tolerance. Obama opened by calling today’s times “strange

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter.

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday.

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she’s working hard to boost her profile, but she’s running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age—and the
