Losing sleep over crime

Re: Copter search nets three, July 19.

Although I am grateful for the RCMP in trying to maintain law and order, am I the only one who thinks calling out Air One for a stolen car is over the top?

How can this be a wise use of resources and tax dollars?

To worry people in the middle of the night that something awful was happening seems just a bit excessive.

During the early-morning hours of July 22, Air One was once more in the air. Looking for a lost dog this time?

I would say that such activity is warranted if the police are looking for serious criminals like murderers or rapists. However, without having any way to find out and RCMP less than forthcoming, it was just another night of interrupted sleep.
