Tasteful San Antonio: The Blottening
Crime is no laughing matter, unless you’re a clown robbing a toy store. But sometimes, scanning the police logs and crime reports from San Antonio and other nearby law enforcement agencies, the curious blend of absurdity, wrongdoing, and straight-faced journalistic argot makes for an odd read. Just because I don’t live in the Alamo City anymore doesn’t mean that San Antonio has stopped being tasteful, as my subscription to various SATX police and media Twitter feeds clearly indicates. Thus, this site is proud to bring you the latest in south-central Texas crime news of the season, fresh off the wires.
