As it so often does, the indispensable Montgomery County Police Reporter has gone the extra mile to illustrate the soulless existential nightmare that is suburban/rural crime.
Usually the MCPR accomplishes this feat through simple reportage, letting the sad facts about assaults, abuse of pick-up trucks, meth busts and the heroics of drug-sniffing dogs do the job.
But this latest effort uses photography, and provides us with a crime picture for, if not the ages, at least this week.
Stanley Haney is a registered sex offender, and he was caught using Facebook to try to solicit a 15-year-old girl for sex.
Loserville, right? Population: Stanley Haney.
A simple mugshot, however, cannot begin to get across the utter Loserville-ness of Haney and his actions. Luckily, that's where the MCPR comes in.
