STRIP CLUBS, DUI MUGSHOTS AND PUBLIC SHAMING
Posted by Mike Foster:
A religious group thought it was a great idea to take pictures of cutomers who frequented a strip club. They then posted those photos on their public website in hopes to embarass the customers and shut down the club.
The Honolulu Police Department posts pics of people arrested for DUI in hopes the humiliation will deter drunk driving.
Oh how we love our public shaming and we preach it as a clever deterrent to bad behavior.
I disagree. I call it a sloppy strategy that drips with judgement and ultimately has very little impact on someone's choices.
So what do you think? Do these ideas have merit or are they just a dumb idea?
(Btw, the above mug shot is Bill Gates)
