Civil rights attorney Lee Merritt (second from left) approaches for a press conference.
's most-read news stories this week were a mixed bag, running the gamut from crime-and-punishment and state politics to labor and the NBA.
Our most-viewed story concerned Boerne police's handling of a 2021 hit-and-run case involving a driver arrested this month for a suspected DWI crash in which another motorist died. A story on high-profile attorney attorney Lee Merritt disputing SAPD's account of the recent shooting of a 13-year-old suspect came in a close second.
Plenty of readers also checked out articles on Beto O'Rourke gaining in a new poll, a San Antonio Starbucks gaining union representation and the Spurs' likely NBA Draft strategy. Oh, yeah, lots of folks also clicked — and commented on — a story about rock band Green Day sharing their feelings about Ted Cruz. (Hint: they feel about as much love for the senator as he does for gun regulation and Hollywood liberals.)
