Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor trains will resume service Monday in “complete compliance” with federal safety orders following last week’s deadly derailment. Federal regulators on Saturday ordered Amtrak to expand use of a speed-control system long in effect for southbound trains near the crash site to northbound trains in the same area. The agency also ordered the company to examine all curves along the Northeast Corridor and determine if more can be done to improve safety, and to increase speed limit signs along the route. The NTSB investigation into the derailment, that killed nine, continues. The engineer says he doesn’t remember anything, and there are conflicting reports as to whether a rock or some other projectile was tossed at the engineer’s window just prior to the crash.

A cybersecurity consultant told the FBI he hacked into computer systems aboard airliners up to 20 times and managed to control an aircraft engine during a flight, according to federal court documents. Chris Roberts was detained by the FBI in April following a United Airlines flight to Syracuse, New York, after officials saw Twitter posts he made discussing hacking into the plane he was traveling on. An FBI search warrant application filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York describes the investigation of Roberts for possible computer crimes.

President Obama ordered the Delta Force raid into Syria that killed a key ISIS leader, but the news of that success was tempered with word out of Iraq that ISIS forces have taken control of Ramadi. How to handle the situation in Iraq continues to be a complicated foreign policy and military issue for the White House. The focus Monday however will be on effective community policing, as the president heads to Camden, NJ, one of the poorest cities in the country, but where an entire police force was fired, and a new one was brought in… one that federal officials say is showing the way to do things.

Patrick Swanton says eight people died at the scene of the shooting at Twin Peaks restaurant about noon Sunday and another person died at a hospital.

He says police were aware that gang members were gathering at the restaurant and officers were present when shots began.
