Pribar: msupf: . Your mugshot is taken when you are arrested. Your charge may change or your case may be dismissed, but the mugshot only applies to what you were brought in on when they booked you. So, the mugshot is not accurate.

May be different for women, but personally I got a kick out of my mugshot (posted above) I was in a bar having a drink waiting for a friends band to play a set when a fight broke out, it spread and soon everyone it seemed was throwing down, I decided to head for the door when something hit me upside the head (if you look at my mugshot above you can see the blood matted hair on the left (your right) side of my head) well the next thing I know a cop is hauling me up and handcuffing me, it wasn't until the next morning that they reviewed th bars security tapes and saw my entire contribution to the fight was to get my length measured on the floor whilst I was bravely running like hell, my mug still stayed on their website with the drunk and disorderly, resisting arrest (apparently being dazed and unable to walk qualifies as resisting) and affray charges listed even though the DA refused to file any charges. I think it was over a year before my mugshot dropped off of their site, I was kinda disappointed the smoking gun didn't pick it up


And part of the problem is in that time, a lot of other sites could take that photo and the posted info and list it themselves, along with any other info they can find. Want it taken down? Gotta pay them. In the meantime, prospective employers could come across that site when doing a background check on you, and it would negatively affect your chances with a good likelihood that they will never ask you for clarification of what happened.

That one woman's account is far from the only such occurrence, and this is why I hope dark will grow beyond this practice. I used to point and laugh like others, and then I saw the real effect this stuff can have on people's lives. It lost all humor after that realization.

What's even funnier is that I've recognized some of the profile names in these mugshot threads as being the same ones spouting outrage at the (admittedly stupid) actions of a newspaper publishing public info of gun owners in New York State.

msupf: Just gonna remind people of this:

<i>BUSTED

Being a journalist, I go to other places sometimes on assignment. This time, I take my friend Megan with me. It's Pitchfork and Exxxotica, which is pretty good for a laugh. I promise her I'm going to be fun, but I end up not being fun at all. Before we left, I start getting a number of messages. Not only is my mugshot featured in Busted, an exploitation piece of shiat that takes peoples' mugshots and compiles them all into a cheap, shiatty, paper magazine sold in gas stations and liquor stores - it's on the front page. And it's not a great picture of me, and it's not interesting compared to all the crackheads that grace the pages, but it's the featured one. Right on the front. We pick up a copy on our way out of town and she and I both agree on one thing: "Who reads that shiat rag anyhow?" But it turns out a lot of people do. And they will take it to the bar and show it around and then deny it was them like a pussy when you KNOW it was them. They will be ambiguous and try to vicariously live through you as the authority on your life. They will have the nerve to tell you, "We all just wanted to know what happened!" but somehow they never think to stop showing it to people, never consider how it might impact your job and future opportunities, and just CALL you or text you. No, that would be what a person with tact would do, and these are people who don't care if you're okay, only what happened, only what is interesting to talk about in public.

But that's not enough. People post it on their own Facebooks and say, "What's going on?" They post it on yours. They tell your staff that their boss is in trouble. Someone even sends me a message saying they went to the 7/11 at 3 a.m. to get a copy. Some people want to frame it. A memorabilia shrine dedicated to your humiliation. And it's July 11. So everyone is going to 7/11 for a free Slurpie. The messages do not stop. The texts do not stop. Everyone asking if I knew about i ...


"LOOKITME!! IM PRETTY! The people at Busted thought my horrible picture was the prettiest of the week. and these idiots on the radio, they loved it. And those morons on fark said they wanted me washed and brought to their chamber. They said these things knowning nothing about me except that I am HOT HOT HOT! I am SOOOO hot. But I cant pretend I like the attention, so I will bring attention to the fact that im getting attention by pretending to be aghast at the attention. Did I mention they think im pretty? Im so pretty I got all this attention on my FIRST mugshot"

Then again, I suppose the release of booking photos is preferable to arrests being not open to public scrutiny, so there's that.


I see no good reason why one couldn't treat photos differently from the rest of a record.
Or require the permission of a not convicted arrestee for (re-)publishing a copy.

HERE is the mugshot roundup that was responsible for the tldr rant that msupf posted.


After reading the tldr, and having done a couple of Twilight-themed mugshops (examples below) in other threads, I went there expecting pictures of Kristen Stewart.
Hrumpf. False advertising.

Now I know a refuge never grows
From a chin in a hand in a thoughtful pose
Gotta tend the earth if you want a roooo-oose.


I have an idea: Why not just paint those height lines on the floor? then if some guy is unable to stand up without help, they can just take his picture while he's lying on his back and not have to hold him upright for his mugshot. Saves time and all those gloves.

As I recall from an episode of Mr. Wizard, you're actually a little taller when lying down. Not by a significant amount, but it is measurable. Of course those were kids, the effect may be less pronounced with adults.

Law enforcement is actually more along the lines of revenge than actual justice.
It's almost as if the cops "sheeat, we arrested this person because our perfect-in-every-way officer judged them as being bad, but they got off on a TECHNICALITY. So let's get back at them and ruin their lives by publishing their mug". And cops are pretty much immune from any lawsuits from the wronged..they basically have zero conscience.

But people in general support this emotion-driven kangaroo court "justice."

Until the pigs end up doing the same to them.

Here's the original "BUSTED" post. tl;dr--special snowflake gets busted for a minimal amount of drugs (the cops were apparently after a "medical marijuana" grower who had just moved out) and is outraged that pretty white girls who like to blog about "murder motels" get busted, too, and ZOMG The War Against Drugs Is So Unfair, You Guys. So, now no one gets to laff over mug shots. People like her either forget or never knew (or cared) that the reason why mug shots are publicly available is so that the cops can't just leave her ass in jail indefinitely; they have to actually show who they're keeping locked up at any given time. (And I say this as someone who's got a couple mugshots of his own on file, and wouldn't be too happy if they ended up on TSG or whatever, but if I didn't want to do the time...)

I suppose that "loitering" is actually "probable prostitution."

Pribar: AbbeySomeone: Some of y'all truly disgust me with the attack on these people and their mugshots. I'm willing to bet that each and every one of you is vigilant about your own  privacy.

Ok in the interest of fairness here is my mugshot, I just cropped out the placard so I won't end up being stalked, since I am obviously so svelte and handsome and all....
