Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio wants people to vote for their favorite mugshots.
The Arizona sheriff known for dressing his prisoners in pink underwear and feeding them green baloney is allowing the public to choose the most popular jail booking photos posted on his website.
The top picks so far aren’t unexpected: They’re the most disheveled, unusual looking people among those booked into the downtown Phoenix jail.
The sheriff’s website allows the public to browse through the photos and then vote on their favorites. They’ll then be highlighted on a “mug shot of the day” section.
Arpaio says he hopes the increased web traffic will highlight the work of his employees. He also says more crimes may be uncovered if the public can view the photos of alleged criminals.
