Every other Friday, Riptide brings you the most eye-catching mugshots taken the previous two weeks (or thereabouts) 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.
