Mug Shots

Now this story justifies the use of the mug shots. Since the suspect is still at large, the mug shots will help readers to identify and tip off law enforcement if they see her, all the while avoiding her if she is still carrying the machete.

"......... during the commission of a crime"?

Would that crime be attempted murder????

I'm curious if this ended up

I'm curious if this ended up being a successful love story. Did he end up taking her back? Are they madly in love again?

Deep wound

A 10" long and 2" deep wound is pretty severe. Since her last name is Bush then why didn't she just waterboard him?

He should have sent her...

a "Dear Stacie" letter.

So doing would have been much cheaper and less complicated.

@High Society

Look at the story titled "North Aiken Elementary PTO treasurer charged with theft" you will see where the mug shot issue started.

@ wsm

Of course she could be innocent, wsm. But the reason the mug shot is justified in this case is because law enforcement is seeking her in connection with an injury. The picture can help the public to be on the lookout for her so they can inform the authorities. Also, because the accusations involve violence (although not yet proven in a court of law where the accused will be presumed innocent), the mug shots can alert the public to avoid her if they see her.

Is that clearer?
