When the police say stop, stop


With regard to the Nunatsiaq News article recently about “Lar” the RCMP dog, I think the real point to the issue is when an RCMP officer requests a suspect individual to stop, and for whatever reason the person refuses to stop, I believe that the suspect then assumes the consequences of his or her actions.

Furthermore, if the hard-working members of our RCMP detachment, including “Lar,” become any busier in their workload, perhaps a few more “Lars” would make the apprehension of suspects easier, and this community a safer place for everyone.

The bottom line is that if a police officer requests you to stop, then stop, or be prepared to be apprehended by a police officer, with or without four legs.
