SAN ANGELO, TX – San Angelo Live! is routinely criticized or praised for its attention grabbing headlines and a lot of the criticism is that the headlines are click bait or over sensationalized or even racist.
San Angelo Live! has also been criticized for using slang terms for marijuana such as weed, reefer, and the one which garners the most criticism, the Devil's Lettuce. The fact is that search engines like Google flag the word marijuana which hides the article from you so we use a list of terms straight from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to avoid being flagged by Google.
We’ve actually started linking to the unclassified DEA report in the Booking Report.
Also, our sources on indictments are verified. They are the arresting agencies so of course, feel free to continue to comment “everything in this article is a lie!”.
We understand, you feel targeted, we “put you on blast”, "why are you posting my business", etc.... Indictments and affidavits are 100% public record and we are a news outlet. It’s our job to report on crimes, opening businesses, and other events or affairs that occur in the area.
Why do you post about things that don’t happen in San Angelo?
If there’s a missing child in Abilene, we’re going to let you know about it. If there is a city council man arrested for lewd images on his computer in Lubbock, it’s quite possible that someone moved here from Lubbock or has family in Lubbock.
It’s our job to bring you news and to provide timely accurate information to our readers.
