At least with incomplete sentences and spelling errors... the readers' minds are most entertainingly actively engaged in reading the final "errored" report, heh?

"young female was reported, she returned home on her own"... 'could be fun to figure out what she was doing wrong. IE: "young female was reported eating a huge hamburger twice the size of her body, she rtned home on her own"....OR "a male was arrested for pubic intoxication". Well, maybe that was true! You never know these days. HA HA HA!

In any event...'an oversight. It happens.

Just keep the reports coming. It's good to read them (slite erors asyide) so that we can remain actively apprised/engaged in our own Neighborhood Watch activities to let criminals know we are aware of what's happening in our neighborhoods and are keeping our eyes open. No?

PostScript: However, joking aside. It 'might be an idea to have TWO people working together on these publicized reports. You know...double check prior to release.

Editor note: We usually proof read all releases and correct them. We have been very busy covering the JRP and just posted this as it arrived. The RCMP are short staffed and we are lucky to get these. No other NW detachment provides these. We are very fortunate here in Terrace.

From MaggieJo Johnson To Editor: Sorry Editor. I meant that maybe the RCMP (not TD) could have TWO RCMP people proofreading prior to release. I apologize for not initially clarifiying that.

Ed Note: And our point was we are lucky to have even one RCMP person working on this report. We will continue to proof read in the future so the RCMP do not decide to stop due to grammer or spelling complaints. Currently the main staff person handling this is away and others are filling in for her.
