Over-reaction in Raoul Moat case?

Is it an over-reaction when the police summon up hundreds of highly armed police,  dressed like soldiers, to deal with a man who while dangerous, is not targeting the general public but the police themselves? How is it that police can summon up such a huge presence at such short notice and such huge cost, turning an area of Britain into a virtual war zone, when cases like that of Fiona Pilkington and her disabled daughter shows how difficult the police can find it to deal with the wanton anti-social behaviour that blights so many of our communities and affects so many more lives than Raoul Moat ever will?
