The Mayjah Rayjah

Why Does the Hawaii Police Department Post the Photos of People in Contempt of Court?

So I was asked the following, “Why don’t you publish the folks wanted for contempt of court on your website……

Well quite frankly… I don’t think it’s right that the Hawaii Police Department is blasting the pictures of these people that are wanted for something as simple as contempt for court.

Someone could have missed a court date on a simple speeding ticket… yet the Hawaii Police Department tosses up their mugshots like they are guilty of  something serious.

Missing folks, deaths, serious crimes, and criminals wanted for violent crimes will make my site… but not every dang contempt case.

Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?  These folks may eventually be innocent of the charge that they are wanted for?

I understand that contempt of court is against the law… but is it worth ruining someones career over?
