It's really a relatively clear enough photo for someone to clearly know who he is & identify him if they should want too!!!!. Problem is they won't!!. So yes another idiot on the loose. What is wrong with these stupid people if that's what you can call them. Where are the filters in their brains because at some point they will get caught, especially when there is a nice fresh mug shot flying around. Brazen enough to go do these crimes & scare people but obviously not tough enough to stand up to what they have done. They will shave their head they will grow a beard they will try it all to disguise their looks.....but no matter what they do the eyes & voice will give them away at some point as those are the things that stay in our memories. Hope he gets caught & more than a slap on the wrist. Punishment is not no way near harsh enough for them to think twice about doing it again!!!!
