See? Here's where criminals get nabbed.

1.) He had horizontally lined wallpaper - graduated in inches - installed in his home.

2.) He used his home as a backdrop for a family portrait or pancake breakfast snapshot.

From there, even a meter-maid glancing at photos on someone's fireplace hearth can pick out a perp. guilty of SOMETHING.

Guys, I see this time and time again in the paper; backing me up. Plus, what's up with those red Vee-necks? Many a poser have been picked up sporting 'slammer-suits' like those at the country club.

Police are the Paper and the Paper is the Police. A published mugshot does not make a man guilty. It sells papers. Many a man who's married to a drunken wife ends up like besmirched like this.

I've heard that - theoretically - there were people who had no sense of humor. But drawing a response from one who also had no sense of jurisprudence as well? Astonishing.
