All I see and read on the news here is always someone who got shot, robbed, injured in car accidents, etc. That happens at least once per day on SA.com. There has got to be better things to cover in this town. The news coverage here is really depressing and ridiculous.

From the latest Texas Monthly...made me think of this thread.


New Sheriff in Town

The one obvious subject untouched by Mr. Smith in his interview with San Antonio’s new mayor, Julián Castro, was the Alamo City’s alarming crime rate [Texas Monthly Talks, July 2009]. While major-crime rates have been dropping in cities like Austin, Dallas, and Houston, they continue to soar in San Antonio. When I watch San Antonio’s evening news, I wonder if authorities there have lost their grip on the gang-related violence that seems to claim a life every other day. While I’m encouraged to learn that the capable young mayor is looking to accept as much as $8 million in stimulus money for new police officers, I’m wondering if that will be near enough to slow the city’s alarming number of shootings, house invasions, rapes, and robberies.
