Has anyone else seen this publication for sale at convenience stores, usually in more questionable parts of town? It is a weekly "newspaper" that prints mug shots of those arrested during the previous week, along with their names and what they were busted for.

The bulk of the paper consists of general mug shot galleries broken up by county, but there are some even more entertaining tidbits thrown in there, such as "Sticky Fingers" (mug shots of accused thieves and burglars), "The Drunk Tank" (DUI arrests), and my personal favorite, "Sex Offenders Living Near Pools."

Do we have any forum members who have "made the paper" recently?

Thinking if they made that paper, they probably wouldn't say so??

Just busted is good and bad. Good because you get to see the sex offenders and other criminals and bad for the ones who lose their jobs because of the just busted.

Default Don't rush to judgement

Just be careful to remember that being arrested and accused is not equal to being convicted. There could be some innocent people in there. I know someone who was falsely arrested and charged with DUI. I am as anti-DUI as anyone, but some people are charged with very questionable evidence.

I think publishing photos of folks who have only been arrested is not a good idea. Could ruin someones life.

On the other hand, publishing photos of those who have been "convicted" is perfectly cool.

They sell 'em at the Tiger Market in EN next to the Titans Stadium

So far I've never made it in, thank the Lord!

I was put in the back of a squad car once though & I asked the officer if they strip off your clothes & hose you down when you get to jail like they do on tv & the officer said "you're being arrested & the most you're concerned about is having to take a shower?" I said yeah & smiled. He started cracking up & said he's been an officer for a long time & was set to retire that year & out of all those years he'd never had anyone be concerned about that, ever, told me it was my lucky day & let me go!
