What was so suspicious about the backpack? Why do I want to know that dogs were in distress and a police officer went and didn't hear anything... Police called, to call a tow truck, to free a truck from being stuck... These updates from the Sewickley Police Department are pitiful. It makes me angry that my tax paying dollars are going towards their brand new Dodge Chargers! Why should they get to upgrade?

First of all, any unattended backpack, package and/or vehicle is cause for concern in today's society. And secondly, the Sewickley Police do not have a dodge charger so you obviously do not spend time in Sewickley. So how are your tax dollars being spent in a town that you are complaining about, but don't even know what vehicles they drive. That is comical.
