Mostly True Memoirs

Who proofreads this stuff?

I read the following headline:

“Homicide Suspect Arrested from the Sheriff’s Department.”

This implies that the suspect worked in the Sheriff’s Department.

Which was not the case at all.

The suspect was arrested BY the Sheriff’s Department,

not FROM the Sheriff’s Department.

That’s a whole different kind of news story.

And a bit of a disappointing read.
