    Irony -
    Millions of people's lives destroyed by website capitalizing on instant internet reputation destruction, with an extortion kicker....

    But when the operator of the website is finally stopped...
    Sorry, I've known Sal for as long as anybody and I like the guy... but I've despised his unethical reputation/extortion business model from day one. The internet judges swiftly, he capitalized on that - now that it is he who is under focus, the same fate awaits him... epitome of karma

    Keep reading the article....
    I think you'll find that I was defending our legal system and not the accused. :)

    I don't agree. I read it twice and in my opinion it is not a defense of the process but a defense of the person.

    The millions of people whose booking photos were published were all entitled to the same legal standards. "Innocent until proven guilty" is rarely how the internet "lynch mob" reacts. It is because of this very phenomena that the mugshots reputation extortion model worked.

    To lament the exact same reaction to the operator of that business being ensnared and vilified by the exact same mechanism is ridiculous. The same fire he used to extort others is now burning him.

    Really? That was not my intention.
    I wanted to defend the legal process (presumption of innocence), be compassionate to the victims (who are often forgotten) and highlight that regardless of the court's decision I believe that mugshots.com used an unethical business model.
