This week's crop

This week's crop

Once again, Hawaii leads the nation in cheerful arrestees for Operating a Vehicle Under The Influence of Intoxicants. This week’s crop includes perps with the — for real! — given names of Jasper, Efrilyne, Arden, Chae, Junior, Sherwin, Sierra, Summer, Careless, Sinbad and Skylawn. You’d drink too.

    People who give their offspring those pathetic, “I want my kid to be unique but I have no reason to believe he/she will be, so I’ll do this instead” names should be lined up against a wall and shot.

    Are you sure those are booking shots? Lots of police dept. sites use driver’s license photos. Although every one of those is much better than my license photo, so … hmm.

    I’m with Mutt. Most booking photos have a flatter look to them, and there’s frequently a booking number included. Also many more snarls.

    Could HPD just be accessing the drivers license database?

    (BTW, I’ll bet Junior is the doofus with the chest tattoo.)

    I should point out that I’m cherrypicking the mugshots depending on what “theme” they seem to present that week. This week, there were quite a few smilers. There were also some sullen, nasty drunks. Maybe next week I’ll do Scary Bastards.
    Once they’re all pasted together, I hit the “color correction” button in PhotoShop which equalizes the tonal values and makes a brighter image. The mugshots actually look better here than on the police website.
    None of the HPD mugshots have booking numbers.
    The girls are kinda cute, yeah? Or is that my beer goggles?
