Posted on 05/13/2015 4:28:50 PM PDT by tcrlaf
Gotnews.com has independently identified the engineer at the center of the Amtrak crash that has killed at least seven.
Brandon Bostian is the 32-year-old gay man who lawyered up after a deadly derailment in Philadelphia. The train was reportedly going twice the speed limit.
ABC 6 previously reported that Brandon Boshan, not Brandon Bostian, was to blame for the deadly crash. (They have since taken down the link.)
Bostian is a gay activist who previously worked at Target as a cashier before joining Amtrak, according to his LinkedIn.

Good job getting rid that troll!
Homosexuality is unhealthy, period. Drugs go hand and hand with their lifestyle.
I just google Brandon Bostian Facebook and found what appears to be his actual fb?
I have to admit, I’m interested in knowing the details of this too.
Looks like a suicide by train event to me.
You can’t be going 106 mph and not realize it, when the actual speed limit is around half that.
The two money facts for me are, in chronological order, that the train was accelerated by human action, and the brake was applied by human action. (He was also healthy enough to realize the excessive speed.)
Conversely, if engineer boy was healthy enough to apply the brake, he was healthy enough to accelerate the train.
So what was his motive, before he forgot it?
And, why is the media covering up the angles on this guy, preferring to chase butterflies over there, having to do with FUNDING. Ridiculous.
You can if your sense of awareness is impaired by a drug, or by some naturally occurring illness or condition.
BTW, would anyone know what injuries this train engineer suffered in the crash? If he had severe head trauma, his loss of memory could be real, but otherwise it's probably a cop-out to avoid serious legal implications.
I suspect he had a tinge of fear at the end.
It’s one thing to contemplate the deed. It’s another to be staring it in the face.
I think we all have our suspicions why the media acts like it does. It has it’s favorites, and right now this guy tops the list.
They think it will reflect badly.
Yes, 106 in a zone set for half that sure does point to infrastructure as the culprit. Good grief was that a dumb thought.
Yes, injury could certainly cause loss of memory.
I doubt it would cause a loss of the reason why the accident happened, if it was planned, but I could be wrong there.
Do we know the extent of his injuries?

That’s what I get the big bucks for... = :^)
applyin the full brakes on a turn at 100 plus guarantees a wreck
it was done on purpose
Local NBC outlet is openly saying ‘intentional’ and ‘charges’. Should be breaking fast somewhere.
I’m sure he’s in a union, and will get a per-head bonus for everyone killed.
” Thats what I get the big bucks for... = :^)”
As you go home to your estate on North Rodeo Drive : )
“You cant be going 106 mph and not realize it, when the actual speed limit is around half that.”
The latest on the speed is, it was going 70 mph, then when just before the curve, it sped up to 106, then he put on the emergency brake which likely helped the train to leave the track.
I saw on CNN today, the inside of such a train, with an engineer at the controls to describe how those controls worked. The reporter asked the question if the lever controlling speed could be accidently pushed into more speed. The engineer said it would be very difficult for that to happen. He had demonstrated how to use the lever to make the train go faster, but it takes moving more levelers than that one at the same time to make it go faster.
For me, that pretty much takes “accidental” out of the question as to what happened.
latest rumor: cyber attack? trains are computerized anymore
