Living Petition to End mugshot Extortion

Online removal scams have plagued American citizens all over the country for several years. Many local Sheriff’s Departments will post mugshots of people who were arrested, and some of these people will have never committed a crime. Some may be found not guilty, and in some cases people will have their records expunged/sealed by the courts.

This was never really a problem, but when mugshot websites came along (one of the worst being mugshots.com) they started charging hundreds of dollars to remove your mugshot. Some records on the site also include your address, and in some cases a google maps image of the front of your house. Again, To remove this information from these sites as well as search engines it costs several hundred dollars. If you do not pay this, they would will leave your mugshot up for the world to see even if your had have paid your debt to society, found not guilty, or if you were arrested by mistake.

To them it does not matter; they only want money!

Some States have passed laws against websites like these making them illegal to charge, yet some states have yet to pass a the law. One state being Florida where they have broad sunshine laws to protect freedom of speech and freedom of the press. While this does help some individuals, it cripples the future of others in the event they go looking for a better job.

This is a petition to the President of The United States, United States Congress, and Law Makers lawmakers to work together on a bipartisan bill that will help all victims of this site.

As we did out research on this we found many petitions opposing mugshot sites. This petition will be known as the “No Mugshot Living Petition.”

The petition’s goal is to help everyone affected by mugshot websites. In an effort to raise more awareness to this cause, the “living petition” will occasionally feature examples of current sensationalistic mugshot articles in the media.

    These online extortion cartels have to be stopped. All of their corporate information, registered agents, verified addresses & phone numbers should undoubtedly required to be verified by a state & federal agency because it is their intention to avoid receiving service of process as well as expungement orders & new state legislation requiring these soulless sociopathic companies to take down the information or face civil & criminal prosecution. I think the sites linked to this petition & supporting it should dedicate part of its mission to exposing every last bit of information regarding the people who own, work & operate these websites so it is easier for each person who’s life has been wrecked with no regard by these jerks to turn around & Sue each person involved. If you’ve lost a $75k job or job opportunity, the website & proprietor is in another state, then you most likely have a Federal Civil suit a hungry attorney will gladly take against these predatory companies.
