i think it is absolutely absurb that in my opinion (jim shanks) has nothing better with his paper than to publish mug shots now of those arrested,and yes it is public info but defaming someones character although they are innocent until proven guilty is wrong,and i do not condone anyone,s illegal acts,but do you know how this affects arrested from the view of potential employers and or credit institutions that may be pending,,some however have made bad mistakes in their lives and putting photos now of those arrested is just setting self esteem and integrity to a level pretty low by the expositor because in mmy opinion again Mr.jim shanks you do not care it is public info
It is ALL about MONEY and the upcoming election. You are found guilty in the expositor before you ever even have your court appearance. There seriously should be more to report from sparta and white county than court news and mug shots.

like I said wrote:
Like I said repeat-repeat-repeat offenders. Judge Benningfield gives them a slap on the wrist and puts them back on the street with us! Go sit in court just one Friday and see how sick to your stomach you get. Our tax dollars at work!
I hope you "get some of it" one day. You might see how something very small can be blown into a huge issue, when it didn't have to. And once in, they never let you go. It isn't ALL about money, but that sure is a driving force. An officer can write you a citation for not having registration or proof of insurance, when in fact you have it, he just didn't give you time to get it and hand it to him, you still have to appear, produce the documents you had all along, the citation will be dismissed, but you still have to spend half a day in court and pay a $52.00 clerk fee. I saw this happen twice, just 2 weeks ago. IF this is the situation, the officer should have to pay the clerk fees. They could do this all day long and you would have to pay the fee. What a racket.

tnchick78,,first of all i said i was a parent of child arrested,,secondly i don,t care if they publish provided they know for fact the accused are guilty and yes i am ok with it provided they know their info after the accused are heard in court now that would set an example to anyone, and yes i got arrested once for absolutely something i had nothing to do with and if your name was jane or john doe would and they were another jane or john doe in same town with same name would you want your pic plastered on a newspaper when you were never the right individual in the first place that should have been arrested
It doesn't matter to me because I don't put myself in that kind of situation to be arrested! You must've done something to get get cuffed!

My daughter got in a fight at school and I got plastered on the front page of the paper and the nashville news simply because the other kids Mom said I told my kid to do it. I am an upstanding tax-paying citizen and I have never been in trouble before, yet there I was. I was getting harassed as was my family. Not everything you see or read in the news is necessarily true. Anyone can make up anything they want and have you arrested for it.

It's all public record so everyone has the right to see. The Expositor just made it easier to see, and I think it was a good idea.

Read the newspapers from the 1970 era at the library. Nothing was left out about anyone in every issue.

It should have said all the people pictured are innocent until proven guilty. Maybe they should leave the ones out that are in question. I still agree with them posting the pictures and think it was a good idea, but like every good idea they can do things to make it better. No matter what they decide there will still be people complain about it. It made the newspaper better if you ask me. Everyone was talking about the arrest page around town, so to me that means Mr. Shanks is doing a pretty good job. Keep up the good work Expositor team.
