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?
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!
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!
