    We are all pretty well aware of the fact that railroad tracks are built on railroad property and that other than at a station you are a filthy criminal if you get struck and killed. But I also think they could lighten up a bit and show some sensitivity to a family dealing with a family member who has passed away without the slap in the face of a dirtball Railroad Lawyer inspired newspaper assertion that their loved one died a criminal. Very heartless and shabby.
