Craig Wiggen: "Wiggen said he wrote screen-scraping software to perform searches on 37 of the counties, crawling to get arrests stretching back years, and continuously polling the sites for new busts, which he scarfs down at a rate of 1,500 a day." "But the end result is that mug shots that were once hidden behind police CGI search scripts now display in Google searches, often prominently."
Kravets, David. "Mug-Shot Industry Will Dig Up Your Past, Charge You to Bury It Again." Wired August 2011.


Kyle Ritter: "Fairly simple mechanics power pdxmugshots: An algorithm scrapes the photos from law enforcement websites, including the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, which oversees the jail."
Corey, Paul. "Mug Shot Profiteers Been arrested? This website puts up your photo and sees profit in your shame. Others see extortion." Willamette Week August 2011.


Kyle Ritter: "Businesses such as BoiseMugshots.com, Mugshots.com and arrestcentral.com scrape — or automatically grab information from — websites like Ada County’s arrest log, post the photos on their sites and then link to other Web businesses that charge $99 and more for removal."
Orr, Patrick. "Mug shot websites make money on ‘embarrassment." Idaho Statesman February 2012.


Kyle Ritter: "For someone to scrape our site would be no different than you investigating a story, collecting and structuring the information, only to have a rival change a few adjectives and publish it themselves without going to through the same process you did.”
Kyle Ritter: "No comment on how many different towns we have websites for – gotta keep the lazier scrapers at bay, ya know?"
Orr, Patrick. "Read the entire Q&A between'Mughost Barry at boisemugshots.com and Idaho Statesman reporter Patrick Orr." The Olympian February 2012.


Boone County Sheriff's: "We get a lot of requests for photos of the individuals that have been arrested, so it seemed a matter of efficiency to make it available via the website so that can folks can have quick access of them, he said."
Boone County Sheriff's:"It also helps us out in reducing the number of incoming calls that we have to deal with."
Boone County Sheriff's: "Discouraging crime was not a factor in putting mugshots on the website, Reddin said."
Boone County Sheriff's: "People are going to behave how they're going to behave whether their picture is going to be published or not, he said."
Kass, Dani. "New sheriff's software makes mugshots available to public via Internet." The Maneater February 2011.


Tyrone Jacques Spencer on Sheriff's: "Tyronne Jacques, owner of RemoveSlander.com and author of How to Fight Google and Win, published in 2010 with Raegan Publishing, said sheriff's departments could put a stop to these businesses if they banned people from republishing the information for a profit."
Susanna, Kim "Businesses Charge Hundreds To Remove Mug Shots Online." abc NEWS April 2012.


Craig Wiggen: "Ex-con Rob Wiggen gets hate mail daily for running a website that hosts 4 million mug shots."
