I don't think it's unfair at all. You have to be doing something to be arrested in the first place and the charges are listed in the newspaper. The only difference is that this paper shows their picture.
so u are saying the police do not make mistakes when arresting someone? How bright are u exactly
Yes they do

Anyone can make up a lie and say that you assaulted them...then you may be stuck in jail for a few days until arraignment...seen it happen.

@snoop - I'd like to hear what you would have to say if it happened to you and are you really naive enough to think that innocent people don't get arrested all the time.
I agree with insomnicide & mee. Also, even if they are guilty, it can still hurt their kids and families unfairly. I can see their kids getting harassed or made fun of in school because their mom/dad's pictures are seen in that paper. Who know what damage that will do to them now and in their future. It's sad when people feel the need to profit on others pain.
It shouldn't be legal just because they add a little "innocent until proven guilty" clause at the bottom.

the paper plainly states innocent until proven guilty!! all of the information in this paper is public record anyway so if 1 really wanted it, without this paper, all they would have to do is go to the court house and collect the info.. you can actually look up online the last 7 days of arrest for washington county and they also post pictures.

if people are worried that their kids are going to see this then they should be on top of what their children are looking at and reading. a little parental supervision may help solve that issue.

Me and my wife were told to go to the Sullivan County Booking room in Blountville a couple of weeks ago because we were being charged with "Aggravated Criminal Trespassing" This was a charged invented by Detective Bindall (not the right name but close) of Sullivan County Sheriff's department. We had a problem at Miller Perry School. Our kindergartner son had come home one day off the bus crying. He had been sent to the principal's office for spitting on a child. This school has been harassing our children all year. A six year old child comes home and insists that the Assistant principal was going to tape him up in a box. This was the second time this year this had happened. The first time, I sent a certified letter to the school telling them if my children had to go to the office, their instructions were to call me immediately and do nothing until I arrived at the school. Of course this was not done. She saw her way to threaten the child again and they did not even have courtesy to send a note home. As soon as he got off the bus, I loaded him, my wife my 11 year old boy and I and we went to the school. It was about 3:45 in the afternoon and we had to ring the buzzer to be let into the school. When we went inside and up to the office, the door was locked. My oldest son knocked on the door and no one answered. He knocked louder and someone finally came to the door. It took them 15 minuets to let us into the principal's office along with a teacher and a secretary who was in the other room. We sat down in front of the assistant principal along with teacher and a cell phone which was in the on position on the desk so who knows who was on the other end of the line. After I confronted her of course she denied the whole thing. I told her I though she was a damn liar and I did not believe anything she or anyone in this institution said and that I would believe my children before her. After this statement, she told the secretary in the office to "Close the Window".....

News flash, there is no windows in the office to close. This was a code to call 911 and I realized this. I continued to talk to her for about 10 more minuets. After all there was 7 day left of school. I told her that I am going to agree to dis-agree and if she would please to try to make the remaining days as pleasant as possible. We left the school property and I was a Sullivan County car go flying by me and it pulled into the school lot. I knew he would be coming after me so I pulled off into a vacant lot and waited for him to show up. When he did, He got my side of the story. After about 20 minuets of talk and a total of 5 Sullivan county cars in the lot with us he told me not to back on school property. I told him that I needed a report to show that because if my child is in a public school, I have every right to be there. After he did not make a report on the incident, he gave me his card and told me if I had any more problems to call him and he would go with me to the school. We agreed and went home. School was out after 7 days and the next day Sullivan County came to the house and had a paper for me and my wife to come to the Justice center and book in for "Aggravated Criminal Trespassing” We were booked in and let go without posting a bond. Out pictures were in this publication about a week later. The paper circulated my job and needless to say I was terminated because of this charge. As soon as this charge is over, Detective Bindall and the Sullivan County Board of Education are going to have a lot to answer to. I know that they don't know this yet but I have an Officer with is still employed with the Sullivan County Sheriffs office that told me that if my child is enrolled in that school I have every right to be there. I have already told a few of them what happened and they did not speak very highly of Detective Bindall. PARENTS BEWARE!! You can not stand up for your children or you might be arrested. We are no longer in this school district so my children are safe now. I had my kids in Rock Springs a couple of years ago and did not have a problem one. It is just the way this one school is run and some parents I have talked to gave me other stories of this principal. News Flash: 60% of the teachers at this school don't like her either. The more I investigate this school, the more disgusted I get having my children in this school. This school had great reviews when Dr. Gene Simmons was principal which is now on the school board. I don't know who put these people in charge but something needs to change.

I have been told that my photo was in this publication as well. I was also served a summons to appear @ Sullivan County Booking for an absurd charge. I went there on my own and was also released directly after providing them with the information they requested. I was never arrested. I am a professional woman with two very small children one of which is in school. I pray that the staff and parents there have not seen this if I were in this publication. I recently lost my job as well so I understand why I have been unable to find employment. My family and I are in fear that we will soon lose our cars and house. I knew I would be able to beat the charge but when someone publishes information about you in something called "Busted" it already implies that you are guilty whether it states innocent until proven guilty or not. I have news for anyone who believes that statement is true. In America, it is "Guilty Until Proven Innocent." Anyone can go and press charges against you for assault or whatever else. It is then your responsibility both physically and financially to prove that you are innocent. People who do this should really think about the impact that this has on the people involved. Our economy is bad enough without making it worse on people who are already responsible members of our society.

I seem to only find it at a Zoomer's. Every 2 week on Tuesday. I don't think it is unfair at all. The newspaper post it in the FYI section with their address and age. This just proves it isn't unfair and a freedom of press. No difference.

Just a little reminder, It wasn't due to the incident being published causing you to lose job. It would have been in the FYI section of the newspaper anyway.

In the FYI section of the newspaper, they do not post a color picture above your name. This posting in this publication is very damageing in some cases.
