Revealed! Michael Robertson, the guy that owns mugshots.com owns a company and charges you a fee to have your mugshots removed. He recently sent a Freedom of Information Act request to my agency and got all of our mugshots as well. We know its a scam to get your money - but our legal department said the FOIA law is so vague that we must give him your mugshots - so that he can charge you to take them off.

Bizarre Logic and Reasoning

If kidnappers called the ransom amount the returning person fee would it bedazzle the system again? If the kidnappers rationalized their acts with the same logic would the system be mystified by them? Reasoning, they had to go through the hassle of kidnapping someone hence they are entitled to the returning person fee (Ransom Money).

 

If blackmailers called the extortion amount the unpublish/reputation repair fee would it bedazzle the system? Further, if the blackmailers rationalized their acts with the same logic would the system by mystified be them? Reasoning, they had to go through the hassle of stealing government property, identity theft, stalking people, holding people to involuntary servitude, injuring their reputation and collecting an unlawful debt hence they are entitled to the fee (extortion).

BOISE The Ada County sheriff says its own website is being used to extort money from people who have been arrested. Since 2003, the Ada County Sheriffs Office has been posting daily mugshots of those arrested on their website.  But, Sheriff Gary Raney says recently third party websites have been "scraping" the mugshot and names of those on their website and then placing the information on their own website. Scraping websites, like Boisemugshots.com, has thousands of mugshots of those arrested since early 2011.  The photos on Ada Countys website are deleted after five days. Boisemugshots.com provides a link to another site that removes the information from the Internet for $99. It's really a form of extortion, said Raney. This is something that really goes against the fundamentals of what I sense we should be putting that mugshot out there for. Raney says he is now considering taking down the website to protect those who have been arrested. There's really an injustice that happens to people, said Raney. Raney is also looking into increasing the security on the site to prevent other sites from taking information.
