    I am wondering if you are aware of the personal opinion comments being posted on the local news only arrest reports. I was under the impression that just the facts would be reported and not rude/clever comments. Perhaps you did not proof read this most recent issue before it was sent out. People are innocent until proven guilty and this should be treated with professionalism.

      All Arrest Reports are headed by this statement:
      Note: Those arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a Court of Law.

      It appears two “Editorial Comments” were made; on the 19 year Old arrested for driving under the influence; “out driving around 2 AM in the morning” which is factual.
      EMMA KATHRYN McCALL, Age: 19, POB: Ft. Worth. No Occupation Listed and Home 629 Hallelujah Trail, Keller. Out driving around 2 AM in the Morning.
      Arrested on Oct. 24, 2016 at 1:53 AM
      Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol by a Minor

      And the 18 year old, AMBER MARIE TURNER, Charged with Criminal Mischief of more than $2,500, the “Editorial Comment” “So young so Much Mischief” which I also believe, while not in the police report, factual by anyone’s interpretation.
