I read with interest how the citizens of Snohomish County may be able to look forward to a new type of cops reality show on Everett’s channel 21, compliments of Ron Gipson. (Tuesday article, “Everett councilman proposes shame as punishment for prostitution.”) It starts with plastering the faces of those convicted of soliciting a prostitute on TV.
For the sake of curiosity and to make sure I don’t forget to pencil this into my weekly TV guide line-up, please make the show last longer then 30 minutes and spice it up a bit. Add some child molesters, local street corner drug dealers and a few DUI offenders, and if you’re still short on time, throw in basic traffic offenders so they can get their face on camera too! We all want to be famous, don’t we?
Geez, shame one group, then shame us all.
