TRI CITIES Busted is in violation of invasion of civil liberties! Why? Because they exploit individuals that are innocent until proven guilty! It is an invasion of civil liberties. It causes others to judge them when they don't even know them.

It was a money making scheme, that's all!

it's public record if it wasn't in the busted paper you can go online and see the same thing names and what they were charged with. I agree it does make people judge but now a days all you have to do is breath and somebody is judging you for it kinda sad ain't it

Who exactly is making the money off of this paper. I know that the regional jail must be the supplier of the mugshots. If the people that are making money off of this magazine and the information is that of public interest , then why can't everyone be entitled to these mugshots???

I think showing public records is a public service and we should appreciate it.

It says in the paper accused is innocent until proven guilty. However, that isn't the way it works. You are more likely to be guilty until proven innocent. Yes you can get that info off line, just not mug shots. I didn't know it was discontinued.

Well if someone didn't want to be judged about their actions maybe they shouldn't had done the things they had done to end up in the "Busted" paper to begin with. Everyone makes mistakes, yes we are all human. However, why do the things to embarrass yourself like this???

Looks to me like most of the people in that paper are pretty damn happy to be where they are!! All smiles for the most part.....being in jail must be tons of fun!!

I know someone who was in the paper and proven innocent, but what impressions did people form of him? Also, I work with small children. It was heartbreaking for one child to be told by another child that his mom was seen in the paper-"the paper for people going to jail." Sure, maybe it is their own fault (in most cases) that they are being humiliated, but what about their families-especially their children. I think it is in poor taste and I would like to see it discontinued.

but don't we have a right to know what's going on around us. I agree it's hard on the kids and family but if the person in the paper really cared they wouldn't end up in there for some foolish reason

Someone told me that you have a right to opt out of this paper and that the owners of the paper will pay a small portion of your bail for allowing them to publish your photo.

The company pays for the pics. and god knows washington county isnt going to turn away money. They dont care about anything but money. If you go to court you better have the one that is better friends with the lawyer.
