I wrote to Mark Frauenfelder at BoingBoing for this anti-human post in which he links approvingly to a selection of mugshots from the Des Moines' Polk County Jail.
Subject: pics of jailed girls? regular citizens? non-public figures? shameful.
i've seen some shameful stuff on the net before, but posting humilitating mugshots of young girls? hope they don't, you know, need to get jobs when they get out of jail. they are, of course, innocent until proven guilty, but an employer doesn't care about innocent - they care about orange jumpsuits and their potential employees wearing them.
are you competing with Jill Greenberg?
unreal. it's just totally unbelievable what some people will do to get a few page views.
i can only imagine that the people who created the laws allowing agencies to post these pics, and the people who then posted them on the net, including the people who approvingly linked to the post, reproducing the pictures for some sadomasochistic fetish, have all never been arrested and/or are just sick, twisted, fucks.
Linked from one of the most, if not the most, popular blog on the entire fucking internet. Posted by a co-founder of that blog. The one girl is about in tears - probably her first time getting arrested.
Sick. Twisted. Fucks.
