Re Robin Abcarian's column "Is Casino Culpable in Girl's Death?" (June 4): When it comes to freedom, the individual is all-important, but when it comes to responsibility, it's always the big, bad corporation that's accountable.

I wouldn't expect their surveillance cameras to capture the comings and goings of every person in and out of every restroom in the complex at all times of the day and night. The killer is responsible, of course.

Dan Goldberg was a kid when his grandmother took him to see "The FBI Story" with Jimmy Stewart, but he never forgot that motion picture experience.
