    Hey, let's turn a problem into an opportunity.

    Allow folks getting mug shots taken after they are arrested the option of keeping them private (much like with auto registration info can be "protected") for a small fee $50 per arrest.

    However, after conviction the photos become public regardless. Or, at that point make it a bit more expensive to keep them "protected" ($250 per case?) although the images of convicted criminal should be public, so we can see who they are.
