Why is it that the front page of Paragould Daily Press always seems to be full of mug shoots from the recently arrested. Dont get me wrong they screwed up somehow but is that all there is for this news paper to print. They do this for money, could you live with yourself profiting from the public humiliation of others. Is it ok to wrong a person if they have wronged (not because they wronged a person) another? think about this..........

I think the mugshots of child molesters and drug dealers should be on the cover every day. Lets the public know what those turds look like.

The DP is overplaying police news. A lot of the cop articles they stream across Page 1 are stories that merit a few paragraphs below the fold or on page 3. What has happened is those stories are spoon fed to the reporters and very easy to do. All that crime should be reported but most of it is way overplayed for the above reason. Then again, it takes an adequate staff to provide quality coverage day in day out. The paper does not have that kind of revenue to fund a decent size staff. Just the way it is. Still, making every arrest get play like an ax murder is a disservice to our community. As hard as the job may be, spend time finding more community news and play each crime story as it merits. That is the job of a good quality paper.

Maybe it should just be a weekly paper.
