America is having a terrible time navigating through the viral outbreak. Thousands of people are working hard to support those that are sick. The military has set sail with their medical ships to help the areas that are the hardest hit.
But there continue to be those people that would love to sabotage the efforts because they have bought into some suspicious belief about what exactly is happening around the world.
Eduardo Moreno is a train engineer that deliberately accelerated his train so it would jump the tracks. His target was the USNS Mercy. This is the medical ship that is docked in Los Angeles to provide added support and care for the overflow of patients that are sick in the state.
Moreno is being charged with wrecking his train on purpose. He admits that he did the deed with the hopes of hitting the ship. All because he was suspicious of what it was doing at the docks.
In some strange way, Moreno imagined a story in his mind of why the ship was docked. Like all psychos, he decided that it would be best to act on his fear and destroy the ship with a train. It sounds like a bad movie trailer being acted out in real life.
Moreno’s statement was recorded in the affidavit which read “Moreno stated that he thought that the U.S.N.S. Mercy was suspicious and did not believe ‘the ship is what they say it’s for.” For some reason, he felt that the ship was there for some other reason. Yet he failed to say what the reason was that he was thinking about.
His purpose was to get the people’s attention as to why the government was trying to take them all over. He stated that “You only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.”
It’s a sad day for Moreno because the only thing people will remember is that he derailed a train on purpose. His secure job is now in ruins as is the rest of his life because of a fake suspicion.
One police officer stated that he saw “the train smash into a concrete barrier at the end of the track, smash into a steel barrier, smash into a chain-link fence, slide through a parking lot, slide across another lot filled with gravel, and smash into a second chain-link fence.”
According to one video of the damaged area, there are multiple barriers that the train engine had to go through to hit the ship. These barriers kept the train from ever reaching the ship. Moronic Moreno demonically believes that the government is trying to take over the country. Maybe he forgot that the government is elected by the people, so it is charged with governing the people already.
Moreno is a simple man that works for the Pacific Harbor Line Inc. He has no connection to the port authority. Moreno stated that the plan was entirely his own and there was no one else involved.
Moreno did not realize how fortunate he was to have the job he did. This is a time when millions of people are out of work because of the virus going around. His job was a solo job which means he had no one around him. And he blew it all away with his psychotic actions.
His best efforts to attack the ship fell 250 yards short. The ship is home to a thousand sick souls looking to get betters. And Moreno tried to kill them all. No one was hurt in the senseless act of violence. Moreno is a victim of watching too many conspiracy movies. He sees something out of the ordinary, and he immediately thinks it is a plot to kill people.
The FBI and the Port Authority are leading the investigation. Everyone is hoping that Moreno will get the 20 years he deserves for trying to attack the vessel. The 20 years would be in federal prison.
He had no thought about the lives of the men and women that he could have potentially killed. Thankfully there were enough barriers to keep him from causing harm to people.
