I was reading this story about the Amtrak Train Crash. The train was traveling at 106 MPH into a 50 MPH curve on the tracks. Engineer Brandon Bostian won't speak to the NTSB and has hired a lawyer. 7 people known dead, over 200 injured and the Engineer won't speak with the NTSB? The train had no automated features and the Engineer was operating the controls. So the Engineer won't cooperate with the investigators. Is there anyone else who believes that he shouldn't be arrested and thrown in jail?
I'm really sick and tired of these bus, subway and train drivers who shirk their responsibilities, crash equipment that leads to death, injuries and destruction and then run to their unions and get all lawyered up. I've watched coverage of this crash on a number of news networks and it seems that none of the reporters have the instincts to ask about the Engineer's responsibility. Comments from Union personnel & Politicians bring up the need for more investment in maintenance and infrastructure. This is an obvious tactic to swing the focus away from the Engineer who was operating the equipment and responsible for the safety of the passengers and equipment.
