Peninsula And Neponsit Games

Dear Editor,

The most successful crooks don’t just timidly steal, they steal big.

It isn’t enough for our local embezzlement artists that they are lifting more than two miles of precious Rockaway oceanfront land away from public ownership for laughable pennies; but they have managed to also procure for their benefit gifts of hundreds of millions of dollars out of public treasuries for ancillary support (roads, sewers, beaches, water and transportation and energy systems) collaborating politicians. Adjacent land is of great interest to the embezzlement artists; thus the four (4) traffic lanes of the Rockaway Freeway, under the elevated “A” train, are closed down and donated as parking areas.

Has the vast open acreage surrounding Peninsula Hospital Center (PHC) right in the middle of the Rockaways, escaped the attention of the embezzlement artists? I suspect there is a direct connection between Michael Bloomberg/Andrew Cuomo’s assault against PHC on Friday 24, February 2012. And Rudolf Giuliani’s nighttime assault against the Neponsit Nursing Home, finest in the Rockaways and in New York City, when Giuliani wanted to show that the public’s hold on oceanfront property could be broken prior to give-away of the much larger Arverne Urban Renewal Area, the Rockaway prize.

Under pretext of “inspection” reports, Giuliani goons snatched patients out of their beds and wheelchairs at Neponsit, killing one patient in the process (Mabel Jones). New York City was sued and had to pay a five million dollar fine for the outrage. Under pretext of “inspection” reports, Bloomberg/Cuomo goons snatched patients out of their beds and wheel- chairs at PHC.

I urge relatives of the Peninsula Hospital victims to immediately sue New York City and New York State for hundreds of millions of dollars. A counter-attack by Rockaway’s people can defeat the sinister moves to end more than a century of ongoing vital life-saving service from the Peninsula Hospital.

More than one life a week is saved by PHC; the suffering of neighbors of yours is alleviated every day. And you can park your car free right outside the Emergency Department door when you need attention.
