Excellent way for antifa to protest.
I would like them all to throw themselves in front of a moving train.

Really wish it would be more than one at a time for full effect.
While I agree with you in sentiment, I would not like to see this as I know what happens to the engineers when they hit someone. It’s usually career ending.

Well that's just stupid. How the fuck are they supposed to stop an unimaginable weight moving that fast in time not to hit some dumbfuck on the tracks? They should get a bonus for cleaning up the gene pool.

It's never career ending. I'm not an engineer, but I've been on the headend when we've struck trespassers. It is unnerving the first few times but I've never known an engineer to quit because of it. I was also a railroad investigator for these types of accidents/suicides. I've seen my fair share of the aftermath. The kids are the hardest. I've seen a grandmother who chased her grandson onto the tracks and the biggest thing left of her was a foot in a shoe, while the grandson made it across the tracks. A young kid who was a part of a group of kids playing chicken with the train. He had no head and not much as far as extremities. An uncle (who lived but barely) and a nephew riding an ATV along a bridge when the train came. The uncle was thrown into the river and the boy had the skin on his back torn off along with the back of his skull. Kinda skinned him from his belt line to the top of his head. He died of course. I won't go into the employee deaths. It's no different than a police officer or fire fighter, you get used to it.
