Re "Is Lemon Hill right locale for parolees?" (Editorial, Feb. 13): Would you take a drug abuser or an alcoholic out of their abusive environment, put them through rehab and then put them back in the middle of that same environment? I know several wonderful families in this neighborhood. They are hard working, God-fearing, loving families and are doing their best to make a good home in a bad neighborhood. How about putting some dollars into the community for a safe place for children to play or so they can walk to school without fear of getting shot, stabbed or raped? These are things that most of us don't think of. People in this neighborhood live it 24 hours a day. Let's not make it any harder on them.
