to help identify, perhaps?
Comment by Emma on 13th December 2011
Re: unnecessary comment.

Lisa, the trend i see in the reports where it discloses the race of the people, it also seems an arrest has not been made, so I think it is more to bring the best description of the suspected offender to the publics awareness. When someone is arrested,I usually don't find they post much of a description of the offender. (Nice to see you are still keeping current with local news :D )
unneccesary comments
Comment by Lisa Carpino on 13th December 2011
Still not really sure why it's neccessary to state, 'a native man...' and why it can't just be, 'a man was found intoxicated...' Whether you like it or not, it's a form of racisim and choose not to read the police reports anymore because of it.
Harassing phone calls.
Comment by Janice P. Robinson on 12th December 2011
My sincere and public apology for taking up police time out at Kitsumkalum. I did not consider a request for clarification as harrassment. I allege undesirables are squatting on my private property. I asked them to leave, and they reported me as harrassing. Sorry. I have not lived at Kitsumkalum for long, and am taking a little while discovering how things are run here.
