IMO you're fighting a loosing battle. If they make the busted papers illegal, then they would also have to make it illegal for every news organization to show names and pictures of people being arrested.

Imagine CNN not being able to show you the name and picture of your next door neighbor just arrested for murder or for child molestation. It'll never happen.

I just wished they would post when the people are convicted and their sentence also.

I think "Busted" and "Tennessee Mugshots" do a public service to alert the community to the people who disrespect the law... KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !

I happen to think they should wait for a conviction before they are able to publish anything at all.

Are you sure about this? As IMO stated above, try to imagine someone in your town getting murdered. Now imagine the police making an arrest and going through the trial process. Unfortunately, they can't publish the name or photo of the person arrested for it until he has been proven guilty in court?

Is that what you really want?

Well yeah, because a person is innocent until proven guilty...

Innocent do get arrested, would you want your picture in that paper because you were wrongly arrested ...

I wonder how many people get wrongly arrested in Greene county. I'd like to see that statistic. Maybe 1 per 100,000?

And that 1 probably didn't get wrongly arrested, probably just got a good lawyer and paid some under the table money to get out of it.

If you will read the Greeneville Sun it happened here section you will see there are in fact several people getting numerous charges dismissed almost every single day so in fact there are many innocent individuals being wrongfully accused but still being put on display for nosy busy bodies that live to gossip and put people down.

I live in kingsport and I do believe that this paper is awesome. Not only do I get a good laugh but most if the people in that paper have been in it multiple times. And once you get arrested wether your guilty it not it becomes public information. I mean now days you can google someone name an area they live in and it will come up there history. So it's fairly easy to find stuff like that out. Plus if you go to times news. Com they also have a sport it's sorta like busted but it has all the mugshots as soon as someone gets booked. So they do the same thing as busted. Personally I live busted I have found numerous things about people who live next to me out from that paper.

I think the bitch that thought this up is a whore to society. These busted people have enough shit to deal with without everybody at work posting their mug shots on the company bulletin board. You all think it's funny until you're in one. No, I've not been in it yet. Luckily, all the shit I was into was before this rag came out. And no, it wasn't drugs or theft. Purely violence. I do have a little self respect. Was the day when dealing out a good ass-whooping was applauded by society. What in the Hell has this world come to?

the best way to keep your picture out of Busted..... is to quit stealing, doing illegal drugs and driving drunk. These simple steps would put them out of business and clean up the crime in Greeneville/Greene Co

Screw you! I'm not going to qit stealing, doing illegal drugs OR driving drunk! Everybody needs a hobby, and these just happen to be mine! The best thing for you to do is bring me some drugs and booze. I'll steal from my neighbors. At least this will keep me off the roads.

I agree with the original post. I believe you should first be convicted or have at least confessed to the wrong doing. Innocent people do get wrongly accused, and charges get dropped from them. However, after ones picture is in that paper, people jump on the crime control wagon and presume that the suspect is guilty, not innocent. This can ruin relationships, cost people jobs, and cause humility. This paper needs to be stopped, or at the very least wait until the guilty party is convicted to save the reputation of those who are in fact innocent.

And before you say that I'm a lowlife drug addicted thief and murderer, I'm a criminal justice major who has never been in trouble in my life

I actually think if you are arrested and found innocent before a jury. All your fees, bail, lawyer,etc. should be refunded.

I look at it every week, but I agree that mugshots should only be released to the public when found guilty.

Your tax dollars are used to produce these arrests and the mugshots that follow. The public has every right to see what is produced using their money. I agree there are probably innocent people posted on easttennesseemugshots.com but the fact remains there was probable cause to arrest them and arrests are public knowledge and totally seperate to convictions. We do not say anyone posted on our site is guilty or innocent of any crime. We merely publish a list of those who have been arrested by local law officials.

Sadly, many of the mug shot people seem to be better looking & more suitable for dating than some of the Internet dating candidates! BAHAHAHA

Scary. Sad. So true!=D
