Letter: Police chase endangered people
On the evening of Sept. 20, I witnessed the high-speed police chase. I am a homeowner on Ramirez Street, and was scared to death at what I witnessed as the driver and law enforcement vehicles raced down my street at speeds that had to be close to 100 miles per hour.
Ramirez Street in Marysville is almost all residential, but also includes Marysville High School's campus, which at the time was full of children practicing football and cheer as well as many of their parents. I could only watch and pray as these vehicles raced toward these children, not to mention the many other people who regularly walk around my neighborhood.
Then we hear that the suspect, Noel Webb Jr., has escaped by walking out of the hospital not once, but twice. He was considered dangerous enough to warrant a high-speed chase through two cities that included many residential neighborhoods, but he wasn't dangerous enough to warrant someone monitoring him in the hospital even after his first attempt to escape?
Shame on you for endangering innocent people and then not finishing the job. Thank God these innocent people were not injured or killed.
