Pass Laws To Stop Online Mugshot Profit in Texas

By signing this petition you are guaranteeing that you have contacted the Texas Attorney General (greg.abbott@texasattorneygeneral.gov) as well as Texas Public Information (public.information@texasattorneygeneral.gov) (publicrecords@texasattorneygeneral.gov) in order to express your concerns about the indiscriminate release of public records. Your email will substantiate legal investigations of commercial enterprise by self-proclaimed “news organizations” such as bustedmugshots.com and mugshotsonline.com. Your signature will help gauge public discontent towards for-profit databases that are facilitated by exploiting FOIA requests. Public Records are being obtained by entrepreneurs who utilize search engine optimization with the intention of “redistributing” and/or “removing” data contained within public arrest records for commercial purposes.
