Causes of 2015 Amtrak Crash; NJ Officer Shooting Justified; Trump Protestors In Philly Thurs. Night

Federal investigators have now stated that a relaxed safety culture between the construction crew and Amtrak played a key role in the Amtrak train crash that killed two construction workers last April. Investigators stated that planning and communication failures led to the Amtrak train colliding into the backhoe that was on the tracks. Investigators also revealed that the train's engineer had marijuana in his system during the crash. The engineer, who is no longer with Amtrak, stated that he felt rested and alert during the crash. He also stated that he did not get any warnings about the equipment being on the track. The engineer stated he began to sound the horn and put on the brakes as he saw the backhoe in the distance. The crash ended up killing two maintenance workers, and injured 41 passengers.

A Camden County Police officer has been under investigation after he used deadly force on a suspect last year. On Thursday, his actions were determined to be legally justified. The shooting took place in November of 2015 at the Independence Village Apartments on Rutledge Walk in Camden. State and County investigators have stated that the victim, 24-year-old Freddy Baez, fired first at the officers. The officers were responding to a domestic violence call, but during the shoot out Baez was killed by one of the officers. The officers will not be facing criminal charges for the shooting.

Protestors continued to fill the streets of Philadelphia on Thursday night in retaliation against the new administration in the White House. Protest continued till about 10 pm on Thursday when they started to die down, but some protestors in Center City still remained. Although the protest was mainly peaceful, the protest did take a bit of a destructive turn when three police cruisers were vandalized with spray paint on 13th and Arch. A total of around 3,000 protestors took to the streets, and only one ticket was given out for a civil violation, and no arrests were made. Some protestors claimed they will return to the streets again of Friday.


The Sixers play the Rockets tonight at 8.


Today, Sunny with some clouds and a high of 44 degrees in Center City.
