The Advocate gets the pictures through open records act is my guess.We are told by the jailer, that they have taken jail tracker off to protect innocent people.
Where does the Mt Advocate get those mug shots they put in their paper? They don't seem too concerned with someone being innocent until proven guilty.
Gee. Wonder why Whitley and Laurel counties aren't as conscientious as our our Mary? Aren't we so fortunate?
Anyone who wants can go in and view this info. I use to work for a newspaper after school, and they would send me to the courthouse to get the courthouse records. I could look up everyone who was arrested and what they had done. I'm sure you can, too.
But as for protecting the innoncent, I agree completely. A lot of people have had their lives ruined. I'm all for jailtracker, but how about when charges are dropped, or you're found innoncent, your info is taken off the site? Why not?
Why should my neighbor be allowed to go down and say I molested them, my picture go on there and it say child rape under my picture, then two weeks later when the person says, OK I LIED, does my info remain on there for the rest of eternity?
I'll guarantee you, many people have been murdered over things on jailtracker that were not true. Many people have been denied jobs because of things on jailtracker that were not true. Many people have been victimized and picked on and bullied because of things on jail tracker that were not true.
