So the sleepy — or stoned? — driver went to jail, right? Oh, no. He lawyered up, with the help of his Bad Train Drivers’ Union, and the railroad and the city and state rolled over and played dead.
Incompetent, reckless train driver William Rockefeller not only isn’t receiving the consequences he deserves, the greedy killer is double-dipping with two pensions, one for PTSD, because the crumb twaumatized himself by crashing his train and killing a fistful of innocents.
The Journal News reported Friday that William Rockefeller will receive $3,200 a month for life from Metro-North Railroad.
Rockefeller was at the controls of a Metro-North train that derailed in the Bronx in December 2013, killing four passengers and injuring dozens.
Prosecutors said Rockefeller fell asleep at the controls but declined to prosecute him.
The Journal News said officials cited medical privacy issues in refusing to discuss Rockefeller’s disability. In September, Rockefeller’s union said he was seeking the disability for a post-traumatic stress disorder brought on by the accident on Dec. 1, 2013.
The Metro-North pension is in addition to Rockefeller’s federal railroad retirement pension. The amount of that pension has not been disclosed.
Two pensions. And that’s still not enough for the avaricious, grasping, moral zero and his gang of soulless lawyers: they’re suing the railroad for its negligence.
Rockefeller has filed a $10 million federal lawsuit against Metro-North. He claims the commuter railroad was to blame for the accident.
$10 million? Why not. When you’re a public servant, the whole public is your servant. And negligence? Yeah. They let him drive a train, and look what happened!
Between the two pensions, the guy will likely be drawing an upper-middle-class income, guaranteed by the
chumps taxpayers, for as long as his greedy, grasping fingers can cling to his miserable life. Even if he doesn’t suck $10 Mil out of those commuters who have, so far, survived his attempts to bump them off.
Of course, the world is probably better off paying Rockefeller not to work. At least this way he can’t kill any more of his passengers.
