Are You Trying Very Hard..?

Last night, police were still trying to trace the owners of the two dogs – both of whom locals say are often seen hanging around in the area.
And no doubt would be well-known to local police? If the ‘neighbourhood team’ designation they often have meant anything at all…
A police spokesman said: "A number of witnesses have come forward with information and their statements are being taken and a number of other enquiries are being carried out.
"Investigating officers are aware that a number of concerns have been raised in relation to other matters involving individuals in the area. These have been and are being investigated and any possible links to the recent incident will be explored."
Is it me, or does it sound like the sort of bland, reassuring (without promising any action) sort of statement that we’ve come to expect from so many crimes that the police feel it’s beneath their dignity to have to do something about..?

I wonder how many helicopters would be 'deployed' if a dog bit a cop?
