"Eddie's Not With Us At This Time": Engineer Intentionally Wrecks Train In Attack On USNS Mercy

There are many surreal aspects to this pandemic but Eduardo Moreno is still something of a stand out. The California engineer attempted to ram his locomotive into the USNS Mercy (Hospital ship) because he was suspicious of its real purpose in Los Angeles.

His effort took the train off the rails and across a remarkable distance before stopping short of the ship. The family has started a GoFundMe page that cryptically says “Eddie is not hurt physically but isn’t with us at this time.”

The case has resulted in a relatively rare federal charge of training wrecking. By handing Moreno over to the federal prosecutors, state authorities minimized his defense options and maximized the potential sentencing.

Moreno was operating a Pacific Harbor Line train on March 31st when he decided to try to reach the ship at high speed. According to the U.S. Attorney, “Moreno ran the train off the end of tracks, and crashed through a series of barriers before coming to rest more than 250 yards from the Mercy.”

It is still not clear to me how the train could have possibly reached the ship despite traveling over an impressive distance after derailing.

That fact could be used to contest allegations of an intended collision as opposed to the current current charge of train wrecking. Nevertheless, the charge still brings a potential 20 year sentence.

It seems rather that Moreno, 44, has a questionable mental state to put it mildly. He could not explain the basis of his suspicions or why he thought a hospital ship had some nefarious purpose. Prosecutors simply recounted that Moreno confessed (after he tried to flee the scene) and said that he “was suspicious of the Mercy and believing it had an alternate purpose related to COVID-19 or a government takeover.” He also later said that he wanted to “wake people up.”

Well, this is touchy for the leftists. Crazy Latino! My (Libby) wife asked "What sites has this guy been reading on the web?" Because clearly (my words) his mind was "poisoned" - but by whom? Conservatives? What's a Latino doing reading conservative sites? That's a no-no!!

My coworker knew the guy. Said he was fine back in the day. Maybe he got brainwashed by CNNPC
