Law-enforcement professional turned community-watchdog/politician John Harvey has discovered some mugshots that are at least humorous, if not exactly useful. For example, this photo would only come in handy if a witness described a perp as "the blackest black man you've ever seen":

It's possible -- but, barring a positive dental ID, cannot be confirmed -- that this man was arrested for spray-painting "Kilroy was here" in places around the world:

And here, of course, is the only known mugshot of the Invisible Man:

Why is it so hard to get a good mugshot each and every time? Maybe it's got something to do with the fine print in this MPD recruiting ad.
