Dear Editor:

I found it quite troubling to read that a week ago a convicted killer who was at Creedmoor Psychiatric facility for observation had escaped. This is the second occurrence in ten months at the facility.

There seems to be a lapse of security at Creedmoor and that worries many of us in the surrounding communities. My wife and I and our neighbors live only three blocks away and worry about future escapes and the risks to our own lives.

On a positive note, our co-op president Bob Friedrich, as well as twelve other civic leaders and their associations, have joined together to try to correct this situation. They released a statement that laid out a seven-point plan that they would like to see implemented, including a full investigation of the facility.

This is a step in the right direction. The bottom line is that steps not taken will further endanger all of us in the community.
