It's Thug Thursday (11/15/2007) in Memphis, TN
This week, I decided to see who is in jail with the highest number of arrests. It turns out to be Clark Anderson, a m/b, rni # 11018. Here's his mugshot and some information about his 262 bookings in the county jail.
Here's a link to his rapsheet from the JSSI system which shows all the entries into the system. If you are interested in looking at the data for yourself, click this link and enter his RNI number (11018)
Do you think it would be fair to assign a dollar value of $500.00 to each arrest? Could it be that this person has cost the taxpayers that much money? Think about what goes into an arrest. There is the cost of the squad car, the officers, the jail, the jailers, the public defender, the court clerks, the medical staff, the jail clerks, the judges, the court officers, etc. Wouldn't it be great if we could get people to straighten up or leave the community? We could take the money we are pouring into fighting crime and divert it to other things.
Here's a synopsis of the crimes Mr Anderson has been booked on:
