i think it is absolutely absurb that in my opinion (jim shanks) has nothing better with his paper than to publish mug shots now of those arrested,and yes it is public info but defaming someones character although they are innocent until proven guilty is wrong,and i do not condone anyone,s illegal acts,but do you know how this affects arrested from the view of potential employers and or credit institutions that may be pending,,some however have made bad mistakes in their lives and putting photos now of those arrested is just setting self esteem and integrity to a level pretty low by the expositor because in mmy opinion again Mr.jim shanks you do not care it is public info
self-esteem

i did not say those arrested had low self esteem and integrity,i said my opinion was the expositor has no integrity or high self esteem especially you jim shanks since afterall you jim shanks are the publisher or the one that wants to print everything to defame the character of someone but not follwing up results of court hearings afterward,,yes the sheriff dept gives you this info because it is public but you have the discretion to put in your paper,you are in my opinion jim shanks a poor excuse for a publisher of a newspaper

I feel that White County is going be-on the law. First of all you are innocent until proven guilty. Being arrested does not mean you are guilty which means public slander would be an issue if you are arrested and not found guilty. Let's take for instance: If someone acuesed you of a of some thing you didn't do and the law arrested you because they belived them and they had nothing or no job. You would not have recourse of recovering any damanges such as your bail,time off from work and so on. This could happen to you or your children or friends that you know are good people. If this happen to you and your picture was in the Expositor how would you feel? I feel if they are guilty after sentenced in court public exposer would be O.k.. Therefore guilty or not if your picture appears in the paper being arrested my public opinion incriminates you. I think this act should not be allowed and the County Commissoners should act. Look who Jesus is and they hung him on the cross, was that public opinion?
you should

well now if you feel that way you need to call cookeville times an the other papers in the area and let them know how you feel.some of them in the paper are first timers and may never be back in there again and thats good.Most of them are repeat offenders three and four times over and most are between the age of 25 and 70,surely old enough to know better than to do what they did,now who defamed any bodys character,no-one but their own self.

I'm saying, if they are innocent until proven guilty they shouldn't be a question in the public eye or in the newspaper until they are guilty. Do you think everyone that goes to church is an outstanding public figure ? I don't think so. But people do change. I am not judging the Cookville time nor am I judging you. But I'm sure if your picture was in front of a board measuring your height with arrested infront of it and you were a victum of a innocent circumstance your character would be defamed by many people in this county.

The sheriff had to be the one to do it.Do you think Shanks broke in to the jail and stole those pictures?Someone had to hand them to him.All good but lets see if he has the balz to keep it a monthly thing if not then it was just an election ploy.
there are

in the paper there are 13 for violation of probation,meaning they have been given a 2nd,3rd or 4th chance but couldn,t do it.there are 6 for driving on revoke must have been found guilty of vehicle violation before to lose their license or just forgot they just didn,t have one.There are 8 people that don,t know if they are guilty or innocent because they didn,t see the need to show up in court.Three of these are kin to me,it doesn,t bother them it gives them a fan club,and yes the Doyle aldermans picture was on the front page.

Like I said repeat-repeat-repeat offenders. Judge Benningfield gives them a slap on the wrist and puts them back on the street with us! Go sit in court just one Friday and see how sick to your stomach you get. Our tax dollars at work!

i agree with you on some of this,but i think it,s the state or DA office that cuts most of the deals with these peoples att. or public def.and i guess if its ok with them the judge in most cases goes along with it
