The man charged with killing 11 people on a commuter train by allegedly parking a truck in its path wasn't trying to commit suicide but wanted to create a "horrific tragedy," according to police....The guy must be off his rocker. Women prefer flowers or chocolate or pretty cards or poems to death, mayhem, and blood.
"Although Mr. Alvarez may have contemplated suicide, his actions were deliberate with the intent of causing a horrific tragedy," Glendale Police Chief Randy Adams added.
Alvarez wanted to gain the attention of his wife, Carmelita Alvarez, said Sgt. Tom Lorenz, a police spokesman. The couple had separated and Alvarez's wife had obtained a restraining order against him.

Flowers weren't enough?
Like the guy wasn't satisfied with buying his wife a dozen roses? Or two dozen roses? He had to park on the railroad tracks?
