Here's a topic that I'm sure will get things fired up.... not that I'm trying to, but what does everybody think about the "Heartland Mugshots" paper that they are putting into circulation every couple of weeks? Do you think that it is fair to those whose faces are published in it? I'm just sayin....

Not seen it. I guess you do the crime you deserve it.

I don't have a problem with it. If you don't want the publicity, don't be a criminal. It's a pretty simple concept.

I think that most belong in there but the ones like running a stop sign or failure to appear are dumb and not right. I like how it lists the known sex offenders.

Yelp....I don't see a problem with it! I hear there have been complaints by Law Enforcement Officials throughout the area who are against publications of mug shots. Well I don't see anyone complaining to the other news sources who post dirt bags photos on their front pages, web sites and tv. I always was told "don't do anything that you wouldnt want printed in the paper". Served as a deturent for me!! Besides all the perps ever get is a couple days in jail, time to make payments on fines and probation cost and then maybe probation. I say keep posting their pictures in the paper maybe they"ll thing twice about skipping their court appearance, shoplifting, stealing their neighbors BBQ grill or flashing their junk to ole ladies at walmarks.

I think that maybe some of them will be embarrassed and try harder to do better. Hopefully anyways.

i don't have too much of a problem with it so long as the person's guilt has been adjudicated and he has been convicted in a court of law of what ever crime he or she has been accused of and arrested for. otherwise it's witch hunting at it's finest and it's wrong no matter who or what said it's okay because you're supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. how many people have been accused of something they didn't do? i know it's happened to me many times. it makes ignorant people, of which p.b. has an abundance, think the arrestee is automatically guilty if they've been accused, arrested and their picture put in that paper. many ignorant people in p. b. area will find any person who is accused to be guilty with zero evidence and only on one individuals false testimony. in any case i think it would be fair play for someone whose had his life ruined after being falsely accused and his picture circulated saying he did this or that to go insane and hunt down the publisher of that sheet and set up a tripod and begin lobbing 50 caliber shells into their dwelling and even tho i would never do such a thing since i'm a christian i know i could not help but smile.

My thoughts on it..... I think it's a little unfair. Sex Offensers- totally believe in posting their picture everywhere!! The others, well, you know you're supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. What if some of these folks really are innocent? Now that their mugshot has been plastered around town in this paper... they might as well be guilty for sure. Face it, it's Poplar Bluff. Once you're associated with any kind of criminal action, guilty or not.... you are now labeled & people don't forget. Also, people make mistakes in life. What if some of these people really did get caught up in the wrong crowd & realize they goofed & want to do better? But now they're labeled. Once you screw up the 1st time around this place its super hard to come back up with all the stereo typing & judging going on. Some of the folks in this paper really do deserve this kind of treatment, however, SOME DON"T. Can't really weed out the good from the bad in a situation like this, ya know?! That's why I think its unfair & somewhat cruel.

A mug shot does not prove guilt a court of f'n law does that. As an American we should all assume dude innocence until proven guilty.

Ok don't BUY the paper then. I'm sure they will go out if business if you don't support them.

a mug shot published and distributed to the public in the manner described by the author of this thread implies guilt. it has zero to do with wether it's free or not. it's wrong and it begs and justifies retaliation against the publisher .
