If you or someone you know has ever had their mugshot published by either bustedmugshots.com or mugshotsonline.com be sure to thank Star Nine Ventures, Kyle Prall, Jeremy Brooks, and Ryan Russell. Perhaps they are overly modest because it is difficult to know how to contact the mugshot websites. However, they all do take part in this project. A FW Weekly article
outlines their involvement.
Kyle Prall, flying monkey for Star Nine Ventures and co-owner of KGP(Mugly) Media/Citizen's Information Associates, will tell you his business has nothing to do with Star Nine. But don't ask him to explain this...
Co-Founder and CEO of Mugly Media, Kyle Prall, stated
, Star Nine Ventures, through Citizens Information Assoc. [continued below]....
....., will bring the Mugly Media vision of a fully integrated online and print version of the Busted! Mug shot concept to the national stage. ...and with the new Star NineVentures partnership, every major US city will soon have a Busted! newspaper and website to enable citizens to keep informed on local crime.
Ambitous words taken out of a news article (recently removed) that originated from a press release out of Star Nine's office that he claims are untrue.
Ryan Russell, CEO of Star Nine Ventures and round-faced coward, is even more grandiloquent...
Through a lot of hardwork and focus we have been fortunate to sustain substantial revenue growth across our own portfolio, allowing our company to ramp online and offline ventures, this acquisition being one ofseveral planned for 2011 said Ryan Russell
, CEO of Star NineVentures. We have our sightsset on building the largest online portfolio of public information and novel data driven concepts.
I've tried to contact Mr. Russell but he has taken advice from the bad pr playbook and chooses to ignore the situation because he knows he is BUSTED. If you had a clue you wouldn't rely on free pr websites to promote your so-called marketing effort. If you are not a coward then please provide a rebuttal to this report.
And then there is Jeremy Brooks who doesn't have very many good hair days...
This is an exciting acquisition, we envision immense growth for this concept across both online and offline channels, said Jeremy Brooks
, Executive Vice President of Star NineVentures and Managing Partner of Citizens Information Assoc., a subsidiary of Star Nine Ventures.
What pisses me off about this guy is you can tell he is such a want-to-be and he thinks he is funny...
How much more fun of a design can you work on? Your creating a logo for a website that has the funniest mugshots (arrest pics) of people that get in trouble and arrested by the police..
Funny and EVEN UGLY is key!!! Ugly - ugly characters!!!
Jeremy, just because you are bald and goofy doesn't mean you have to be stupid too.
All I want to see is some accountability on the part of Star Nine. I've choosen not to include the other low-lives who work at Star Nine because my original report
hurt their feelings. Gentleman, I'm sorry we couldn't be friends but if you will just stop lying and come forward in verifying what is blatanly true I'll go away.
Since the holiday season is fast approaching, I would like yall to exhibit your goodwill and offer to remove mugshots from your precious search engines for FREE to anyone who objects for any reason. :)
