I’m just spitballing here, but I feel like this was done during a break between rounds of posting conspiracy theories on Facebook.
A train engineer told police in Los Angeles that he intentionally crashed his locomotive at high speed near the USNS Mercy hospital ship in what seems to be a bizarre attempt to expose a perceived conspiracy.
Eduardo Moreno said he doesn’t believe “the ship is what they say it’s for,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.
The freight locomotive was traveling at a very high speed when it crashed through barriers, plowed under a highway overpass and skidded to a stop more than 250 yards from the Mercy. The ship was not harmed during the attempted attack, and no injuries were reported.
The Mercy is stationed in the Port of Los Angeles to help cope with the coronavirus crisis. But Moreno, 44, told law enforcement officers after the incident Tuesday afternoon that he is suspicious of the U.S. military vessel.
“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,” Moreno allegedly told a California Highway Patrol officer who apprehended him immediately after the incident.
Moreno didn’t elaborate on what exactly is going on here, but I think I have a pretty good idea. that old saying about a spinning wheel and a dead hamster comes to mind. NO idea what’s supposedly happening on the ship, though.
As for what else might be going on here, Moreno might be spending the next couple of decades in prison. That’s the maximum sentence that comes with a conviction for the federal charge of train wrecking he now finds himself facing.
