BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — This is not an April Fools joke.
Since it’s founding, BocaNewsNow.com has stringently enforced our “you can’t pay us to remove a mugshot” policy. We are not a website that looks to profit from posting mugshots solely to charge folks to have them removed. There are lots of websites that do that. We think arrests are newsworthy. Plain and simple.
But that doesn’t stop those charged with DUI, weapons charges, battery and other crimes from calling and emailing, offering compensation for the removal of their arrest report. In fairness, we appreciate that one bad situation shouldn’t necessarily brand you for the rest of your online life.
Our question to you, our readers: What would you think if we were to offer a mugshot removal service, donating a portion of the proceeds (a real portion, not $1) to a Palm Beach County organization that either supports the police, victims of DUI accidents, or teen driver training?
We don’t know how much money this could generate and the last thing we want to do is cause problems for the potential beneficiary of a charitable donation. We will not become a sleazy mugshot website. But it seems to us that if arrestees are willing to pay, there are local organizations that could benefit.
