Some of them were stupid rather than intentionally criminal. I don't agree with posting their photos in ridicule and that's how it came across to me.

Most convincing way to show AGAIN how bad the public is


This is such a shitty publication.  Pretty soon google will stop returning results from it - unless it already has.

I'm sorry if this sounds trollish, but I'm trying to figure out what the point is. I haven't looked to see what these women (or the men before them) have done, but I suppose now's as good a time as any to say the following:

Just because someone's arrested doesn't mean they actually committed a crime. In fact, even if they've committed a crime, doesn't mean they've actually done something wrong. I'm going to hope all the women in this list and all the men in the other list actually did something reprehensible to deserve having their "interesting" mug shots published. No, I'm not going to take the time to actually check.

I just don't see the point. It just seems to me that this feature reinforces the idea that if someone has a mug shot taken, s/he's a bad person. I know you didn't say that, but in the traditions of other publications, that's the gist.

Are you really that ignorant?

That YOU -- and others -- looked at the page = advertising revenue for Westword / Village Voice
