MedImmune Security

To the Editor:

I am writing in response to the letter to the editor published in the July 9 issue of The Town Courier in which the author had, in part, written that her opinion of MedImmune had been “greatly diminished” after a group of family and friends was ordered to vacate the MedImmune garage the night of July 4. I am baffled, however, that the author of the letter thought it was wrong of the security guard to make her and others leave the garage when they were trespassing on private property. Did these families want the security guard to jeopardize his or her own job by permitting them to illegally remain on the property he or she was hired to protect?

This guard and other members of the security team work diligently to protect an office complex that contains millions of dollars of high-technology research equipment. And while I acknowledge that this group of family and friends simply wanted to watch and enjoy fireworks, why not find a suitable, public place to take in the view?
