    I see and hear a lot of complaints of Missing Packages of items you have ordered. Amazon, UPS, USPS, Fed Ex, whatever.
    This is a photo of the train tracks in Los Angeles where Trains frequently Stop for Signals or Delays.
    The fine upstanding citizens in the Area are jumping on the rail cars, cutting the locks to the Contaimers, Ripping through them, Stealing contents, and Throwing the packaging off the side.

    The article says this area was cleaned up a month before.

    That state needs a serious earthquake, dropping the coastline and a bit more into the Pacific. I would hate to lose the dunes and some old friends that way, but it's true.

    It's such a beautiful state with so much potential. Too bad it's mostly populated by the scum of the earth.
    I guess we're super lucky. We have never once lost a package and my wife is an online shopping nut and has been for many, many years. It's a rare day that I come home from work and there isn't a package on the front porch.

    They need to do like the old days when they had armed guards setting on top. Nothing gives manners to a person faster than a bullet to the face.

    Really?
    Why are railroad police called bulls?
    "); display: inline-block; height: 24px; width: 24px; margin-top: -1px; transform: rotateZ(-180deg);">

    This method of selecting agents, and the lack of training and discipline, tainted this branch of railroad service for many years. Many times heavy handed, railroad police came to be known as "bulls" "goons" and "yard cops" and had a generally poor reputation among the communities along the rails.

    There was a great movie in the early 70's about hobos sneaking on trains. One bull claimed nobody could sneak on his train. Seems like Borgnine was the bull? Can't remember if it was Lee Marvin, or Charles Bronson playing the hobo. Good movie. I'll see if I can find it. Good movie.

    That bridge looks like a good spot for a sniper to pick them off one at a time when they start stealing.
