Mugshots

Let’s do a little social experiment shall we?

This is the front page of Singapore’s Straits Times this past weekend. On it are two photographs of two people involved in two separate criminal cases.

One is a perpetrator of a crime.

The other is a victim of a crime.

Which is which?

 

 

 

The answer.

DIDN’T EXPECT THAT DID YA?

The top was a mugshot of an Indian national who was unfortunately murdered in Singapore. On the right was a photo of a Swiss national who foolishly broke into MRT’s depot and vandalized a train.

With a mugshot like this, who would’ve thought he’s responsible for such a childish act?

Heck, it’s not even an ugly mugshot. It’s a glamour portrait photography suitable for publishing in CLEO magazine.

The question begs: how the heck did Singapore Straits Times managed to get hold of such a pretty boy photo of him?

The answer becomes clear as soon as I saw the caption.

The Straits Times actually dug through his Facebook profile to find that pic!

How resourceful!

At least I know next time if I were to be arrested in Singapore for whatsoever reason, my mugshot in the newspaper ain’t gonna turn up too bad.

Hope they also photoshop off my pimple!

real life is stranger than fiction, definitely.

Unregistered

so high tech d...find thru facebook

Unregistered

no i clearly expected that the indian guy was the victim and the pretty boy to be a criminal.
or else you wouldn't be asking that question. :D

my friends and i used to have this conversation long time ago. "there's this person called kenny i used to know, guess what gender is kenny?" (name changed!)

"a girl. or else you wouldn't be asking"

:D

Unregistered

errr... this is the reason we shud not upload 'rancy' photos in FB

Unregistered

first
nice mug shot dude

Unregistered

Maybe they can't find that person thus they dug the photo from facebook..lol

Unregistered

kenny, kenny~ sibeh funny!

Unregistered

Yup!! that's one of your best pose!

Unregistered

Boring. yawn. Showing off that you are in Singapore??

Unregistered

Boring then don read la!!!! Macam macam. No wonder, name also coward chicken

Unregistered

wow, are you really 'that' poor. It took less than RM 50 to take a bus from KL to SG. Airplane ticket is getting ever cheaper as well. Its really nothing to show off about to be able to come to SG from Malaysia.

Unregistered

Editors of this newspaper should've been sensitive before they've published the photos. Instead of mug shots why not picture the damage done?

And yes, this is a lesson for us to be more cautious when uploading photos in facebook and in other public sites. It seems people are now 'googable'...

Unregistered

waa.. never thought newspaper could dig someone's personal picture just to show it to the audience.. nice info!

Unregistered

Unregistered

THIS IS SO UBERLY FUNNY.

Unregistered

Don't worry Kenny, confirm your face is the "Victim" type!!!

Unregistered

Hehe, somehow I just knew that the better-looking photo would be of the criminal. You're getting predictable, mister! :P

Unregistered

hahahahahah! Yah. He is handsome right! I think the grafitti is nice but the authorities don't appreciate it.

Unregistered

Handsome mugshot of the criminal...lol.

Unregistered

Hey...doesn't the criminal look like Gerard Butler?

Unregistered

my thoughts exactly!!! HE LOOKS LIKE GERARD BUTLER LOL

Unregistered

LOL~ you're funny. Nice pic (for the last one) XD

Unregistered

haha. i thought that you will say the victim has a coloured photo while the criminal has a black and white.

Unregistered

This is quite hilarious I must say!! You are hilarious!!

Unregistered

Read through it the other day & I thought I was the only one noticing it! By Straits Time some more. Amazing innit.

Unregistered

lol... very pretty pic of you!!

Unregistered

hahahaha although you are not updating ur blog as often n so busy with ur business n life, u still can come up such funny post! u r legend kenny..legend hahaha

Unregistered

hehe.. this is sooooo TRUE !!!

Unregistered

lol..

Unregistered

the "criminal is hot! This crime is gonna get him girls instead of repelling them.. I find the act kind of funny, although it's scary how security is so weak.

Unregistered

the indian has a victim face, does not look like a bad guy at all. It's so obvious. the swiss guy looks a lot more "stupid-criminal", a criminal who only does useless things.

Unregistered

Good one! Lol

Oh hey, i remember u writing a post about Australia's Dick Smith... its logo makes u think of Dick-head Smith. In some places they've changed their logo already (u probably already know...)

Unregistered

Hahaha..Kenny..you really make me laugh my tears out with your pretty boy mugshots for stealing candies...
