  • Yep - that's why they take them - public record. I miss that from the budget cuts. Our local PD used to post the pics of all the guys busted for soliciting prostitutes over the weekend. It was great entertainment.

  • Sure! You have no expectation of privacy when you commit a crime, it's public record.

  • Maybe it helps to make someone think twice before committing a crime :shrug: even if not it makes us aware of them.

  • Hell yes! They did the crime, most of them don't even have to serve their full sentences...why not publically ridicule them also? Plus, it's fun seeing the doofus you went to school with who thought he was the shit go down for something like B&E of a sex shop to steal a few toys!

  • I think it needs to be in a "Convicted paper though".
