I am glad that security did their job. That property is so dangerous. Plus, it is so sad what went on at that place for years before it was shut down. I agree with many that they should use the property to build something, like a shopping complex or something.

I second that Major Watts. You security officers are amazing people. Thank you for all that you do to keep us safe.

I have serious complaints about the security there. First of all I was there with my daughter and 4 of her friends - the security guard that aught us I knew - he stated since he knew me he'd put in a good word with the state trooper LIE the state trooper let me know he begged him to arrest us to make himself look good - I know it must be sad and deeming to be a rent a cop- second he was extremely aggressive to the kids - against the law next one of the kids was black he singled him out and treated him so badly it was a disgrace - when the trooper got there he put on a shoe for the idiot rent a cop then took us down the street to laugh about why that dude is not a cop and let us go. I have been there over 30 times - if done safetly it's just for fun and a good scare - there are way more important. Times taking place in the world but if your some ex ROTC nerd I guess it's excitement for you- a great story for your next dungeons and dragons social. The buildings have great history and the property is beautiful- I encourage people to see it before its gone
