You people are stupid. No matter where u live there are drugs. Ppl in higher up places r doing some form of drugs and its not in the open. A methadone chinic is for people who need and want help retard. Its not bringing in more drug addicts, its helping people who want help. So it makes since to have the help available. If u don't like it move out. But when someone in ur family is on drugs and needs the help and its not there too bad for u let them die then.

Really you use the word retard. this mentality is the one who needs to move out. Let the methodone clinic move to Yorktown, Croton or Garrison. We (Peekskill) carry enough of the burden.

From your very eloquent defense of drug users, it appears you may be speaking from experience. It is well known that methadone is just as addictive as the drugs they may replace. Would you deny that many of these methadone users are not the best citizens to have in our community? If you could guarantee none of these users would every do harm to any of us you might have a chance of convincing people to let them in, but you can not, just look at the huge number of repeat offenders in the criminal system. Peekskill carries too much of these feel good projects which bring little or no revenue and further makes Peekskill an insecure place to live.

You should correct your headline. As you make clear in the article text, the accused man's name is "Brickhouse" not "Blackhouse" as the headline reads.

in case you didn't know, let me enlighten you. peekskill used to have a meth clinic years ago right in the downtown area, in fact it was right where the peekskill first boxing gym is now and yes there were some problems with some of the clients but it was nothing that the police dept. couldn't handle
