A Boy Named Barbara, Flattop Moustache, And What You See When You Die
Every Friday, Riptide brings you the most eye-catching mugshots taken the previous week in Miami-Dade County. Yes, there is some mockery of bad neck tattoos, but also adulation directed at perps who just plain look more badass than we ever will. This is the italicized intro to that series.
Arrested: 8/16 Charged with: Grand theft third degree, out-of-county warrant We usually try to keep Mugshots Friday anonymous. But we need you to know that we're not joking when we say this fella's first name is Barbara. Is it any wonder that he ended up like this? Look at the anguish in his eyes. Thanks a lot, Dad.
Arrested: 8/16 Charged with: Cocaine possession, marijuana possession with intent to distribute This guy doesn't understand the big fuss over Michelle Bachmann's Newsweek cover.
Arrested: 8/13 Charged with: Grand theft vehicle And what's this guy's name? Marsha?
Arrested: 8/14 Charged with: False imprisonment, aggravated battery Dude, there's no way you killed 14 people. EVERYBODY STOP TROUNCING ON THE ORIGINAL SYMBOLISM OF THE TEARDROP TATTOOS.

Kids these days.
