RE: Vandals damage community garden’s harvest
I can certainly sympathize with your vandalism situation, however, your frustration towards law enforcement is misguided. Calgary and surrounding areas, including Okotoks, do experience serious crimes. Simply because they didn’t make the paper does not mean they aren’t happening. So I suggest you forgive the police for not having time to guard your tomato plants while they deal with more serious, possibly life threatening issues.
Perhaps your frustration would be better used to suggest ways that we can keep the youth busy as most vandalism is born out of boredom.
Further, I’ll assume you did not pick up on your own hypocrisy when you chastise the police for pulling over “little old ladies” who are speeding yet want police to stand guard against Okotoks’ big bad teenagers.
