I’ve handled my share of drunks from time time even an Iron worker that followed me to a local water hole after a disagreement at a jobsite.

but honestly what if this attack had not been a drunk and rather an armed terrorist bent On recreating Another Cantara loop disaster and polluting Shasta Dam. The crew would have been defenseless. You gotta think outside the “guns are bad” and the cowboys and indians BS. A weapon in the hands of a well trained individual during a crisis in an asset.

Santa Fe out of Clovis NM. It was also well documented in Linda Niemann’s two books about working on “the friendly”

Was “Gunney” R Lee Ermey your drill
Sergeant?



Either way I’m sure Cantara Loop will soon be fenced off with security patrols. Soon to be another railfaning spot lost due to the actions of an idiot.
