Union Pacific is one of the largest, and oldest, railroad companies in America and recently the company has been faced with modern-day train robbers in the state of California. 

Gangs of thieves in California have begun robbing these trains in a variety of ways, the most common of which is to break open one of the containers when it is stopped and rip all of the boxes out of it. This style of railway robbery leaves trash everywhere and many videos have gone viral on social media showing this destruction in the streets of Los Angeles. 

The main culprit? Politicians in Los Angeles county.  

Union Pacific director of public affairs, Adrian Guerrero, wrote a scathing letter condemning the area and the leaders that run it over the rampant increase in crime. Guerrero slammed the city’s policies which he says enable criminals to get off easy and then brag about getting off easy. 

Guerrero’s letter explains that Union Pacific has seen a 160% increase in criminal rail theft in Los Angeles county since December 2020, approximately 90 containers are compromised every day, and there have been approximately $5 million in claims as a result of losses and damages to goods. Guerrero also pointed out that this damage does not reflect the value everyday consumers of goods are losing. 

As a result of all this theft Union Pacific is considering completely reworking its routes to avoid the county entirely, Guerrero would explain. 

It should be pointed out that robbing railways is a major step up from rampant shoplifting that has been going on in the state for a while now. Criminal gangs have gone from cleaning out the local supermarkets to stealing from train cars. This escalation was entirely predictable, these criminals know that at worst they will get arrested and then slapped with a small fine before being let back out on the street. It is not that hard to imagine where this will lead, the next evolution for these criminal enterprises in likely violent crime. 

The delusional politicians in these major metropolitan areas are going to sacrifice the law-abiding citizen for the sake of woke policies and progressive viewpoints, and no, they don’t understand that this is what they are doing, they think that they are doing the right thing and righting the wrongs of American history.

This is all part of the plan you have the true believers of these Upside down policies and you have the faceless people hiding and financing this ideology within all facets of society including the military.When it becomes so violent and untenable and the common man screams for answers the same people that caused the mayhem will trot on in on their white horses with promises of security and order they won’t accomplish anything except more if you rights will be a thing of the past!!Duda

Unfortunately here in Califuknia with all the gun grabbing laws imposed to law abiding gun owners will end up with these a€€holes with the illegal guns having a shoot out with law enforcers and RR police/security.

Put a bounty on the thieves. DOA. UP should hire snipers and place them strategically around the rail yards.

The railcars should be considered like “Castle doctrines” for protection. Time to stop this lawlessness with a little frontier justice. Then unto the radicals; let’s see what we can do to move them along to a socialist country – some of us will pay the moving funds.

You are correct as in; “it was my daughters fault because she was cute and defenseless when was raped.” What a dumbass woke response, blame the victim.

You don’t seem to be too familiar with trains. In case you didn’t know, a train is a series of cars connected end to end, Some trains can stretch a mile or more, so CCTV would be ineffective over the entire length of a typical train.That is why containers on trains are so vulnerable, particularly in areas where law enforcement is lax.

You do not seem to realize that they are robbing cargo containers clamped to flatbed cars.

Robbery is robbery no matter how they tend to gloss over it. No difference between a jewelry, clothing, appliance, food store or bank. It used to be looters were shot on the spot. We are long past due for some good old fashoned Marshall Dillion law. Problem is the bleeding hearts cry oooohhh….oooohh, but you can’t just shoot someone over STUFF.

America is now the land of opportunity to do anything you want and get by with it. Our legal system is now a toothless lion that criminals no longer fear and will only embolden them all the more.

Many years ago I worked in the Loss & Damage dept at Southern Pacific (now UP) in San Francisco. Our claims then were for boats damaged in transit, lost property, and goods damaged through rough switching. Can’t remember any definite robberies. Something has changed in America, and not for the better.

A little old fashioned Western justice might be the best way of discouraging train robberies. It worked once. Catch a number of the miscreants and hang them by the neck along the railway.

No more trains to LA? I like the idea. Then, build a wall around and leave it to last man standing.
