Maricopa County Mugshots of the Week: Lofty Aspirations

Every week we bring you a roundup of visitors to the desert's own Fourth Avenue Jail. To be considered for our Maricopa County mugshots of the week, get arrested, strike a pose, and we'll take care of the rest.

This week, most of our Fourth Avenue visitors have some pretty evident aspirations in life. As far as we can tell -- being in jail and all -- those goals are not being met. Enjoy.


Charge: Criminal trespassing

Fair enough, pal. Did we say something about these people having goals in life? Looks like we messed that one up. All it takes is one decent "Fuck You" tattoo on your face to mark the point that you gave up on society.


Charge: Probation violation

See? Lofty goals -- "Money Over Bitches" tattooed right on the neck. However, allow us to point out a few things: star tattoos on the face signify what we'll refer to as "low testosterone." Also, if you paid anyone a dime for that haircut, you got ripped off. There's also that look on your face like you get scared of monsters hiding under your bed. Lastly, if you're relying on those 15 or 16 hairs to make a mustache, just shave the thing off, and wait until that whole puberty thing is over.


Charges: Identity theft, forgery, credit-card theft, possession of drug paraphernalia

Here we have a revolutionist in the making, who used a Emiliano Zapata quote for that chest tat. Oh, and friggin' devil horns. Rad. Big things are happening here, folks.

"failure to pay fine?"  Debtors prison?  Homeless person gets out of jail, has no phone, no place to shower, no good clothes to apply for job - 1st has to pay $ to get mugshot off all the predatory websites so he has chance at job - but with what $?  So even if he got clean if the only skills he has is selling drugs - he has to do what he knows just to try to get a job - even that prolly won't work cuz nobody knows if he's a snitch . . recidivism guaranteed for CCA.  Promises fulfilled.


At some point society needs to realize that there are only two choices to dealing with societal predators.


One is to lock them up forever at a cost of $20-$40k/yr and the other is to put them down.


Locking them up for a few months and then letting them loose again so they can victimize people and we can spend thousands of dollars tracking them down and prosecuting them again only serves to make money for the criminal justice system (cops, prosecutors, judges, jailers and probation officers) at a terrible cost to society.




Those tattoos are ugly and should be forcefully removed from the inmates. Either they volunteer to have them taken off or they should be tied down and removed with sand paper.
