Dumb Criminals

(Mug) Shots Fired

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014 • Filed under Guns, Robberies, Technology

I remember at one point I was trying to untag a very unflattering photograph of myself on Facebook. I was then interrogated by the website, asking if the photo was pornographic, illegal, triggering, etc. Unfortunately, there was no choice saying “seeing my braces brings back PTSD” or “offensive double chin: extremely triggering”.

Believe it or not, someone took this too far. An Ohio woman was reported to have robbed her car’s passenger at gunpoint but had been indicted. A Facebook post of her mug shot gathered a lot of attention, and the femme fatale called the detective’s office requesting that the photo be taken down, as it was unflattering. According to HP, the detective asked her to come in so they could “talk about it”. She was promptly arrested on arrival. Apparently Photoshop privileges are not extended to the criminal population. Which begs the question: How is Alex Vause so hot?
