“The U.S., paradoxically, professes a belief in blind justice while eagerly distributing photos of its accused. It’s not that police departments in, say, England or Canada don’t collect photographs of the people they’ve arrested; they just only release them when there’s an important reason to. There’s a jailbreak, say. Or a murderer on the loose.” From The Marshall Project: How your ugly booking photos (and Tiger’s) became a commodity for cops, hustlers and journalists.
