    • Wanderhom

      Because back in the day, getting your picture taken was a rare and special privilege. Evidently these guys decided to make the most of it when one came their way, and the cops were willing to let them.

    • Dunny

      notice how short these guys are? avg. height back then was 5'4''. fucking midgets

      • asdf

        Better than being fat shits

        • Dunny

          like you and your gay lover, eh. awww…u mad bro?

    • aaaa

      Because fuck you, that's why

      • nemesis

        There's always some James Blunt who says that. Give it a fucking rest will you?

        • Sally

          THANK YOU

          • Dunny

            actually, it's the proper answer to a philosphically proposed question. the only acceptable answers to the question of why are either why not or because. dumbasses.

    • shanemcguire88

      this was when men were men. now everyone's a pussy.

  • main man

    First finally

    • TheAutomaticMan

      nailed it

      • McG

        The only thing lamer than saying "first" is failing at saying "first"…

  • Stupedasso


  • Blake Finnacom Guyther

    Old school criminals dressed better than I do !O.O!

  • Tuff Guy

    • Steve Lee

      the (1920) rapist's glasses

      • TGIF

        It's Friday, Fuck this shit!

    • thom

      Skukerman. Nerdy and a nerdy name. No wonder he turned to crime.

    • Trainwreck92

      18 looks like Benjamin Linus from Lost.

  • Rufio07

    Thug life

    • andfukyamoms

      How did they photoshop in all that text? lol

      And where are the black people? I bet they got arrested for absolutely nothing back then.

      • Wilmah

        Photoshop? They just scratched the words into the photo.

  • A Guy


    Father of Marv

    • Mike

      He is fucking scary looking.

    • spideysense

      spot on

  • porke
  • Bud

    Holy shit! Does that guy have a blowout?? #1

    • uberbrie

      D-baggery was grounds for arrest in the 1920's, a practice that should have been continued.

    • joeindc44

      dude looks like Michael Diamond. and he said, no, my name's clarence.

  • ambulldog

    #6 guy on the right "it's the pattern on the pants. it's not flattering to the crotchal region"

    • Nick

      "I'm taking them back to the pants' store…Don't act like you're not impressed!"

    • A BiPolar Guy

      oddly enough I didn't notice. But – you know, whatever trips your trigger.

  • Bobby Gosbee

    Yea, pretty sure #18 is a serial killer or rapist

    • Bud

      …Or mogwai?

    • Itsa me

      Don't worry, he got his comeuppance at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    • Ally

      He looks like Elijah Wood's character that eats people in Sin CIty…

  • D.Bag

    One other thing I noticed: Unlike hipsters, they know how to rock a fedora.

  • Holy Hell

    That's one tough looking guy right there.

    • Marine Dad

      Look at his nose, not so damn sure i would want to owe him money!

      • biggles

        yep, that was a tough guy back then. They didnt' have to have alot of muscle. Just cement head enough to never stop, unless you knock them out.

    • DoomsDayDub

      These would make some interesting home bar coasters.

    • bud

      i think thats the bad guy from the rocketeer

  • pufffdragon

    #18 The F@#k is that!

    • Bubba

      My preccccciousssss

    • DemonIAm


    • Mike

      is Smeagol from lotr

    • Johnny K.

      He definitely has a few dead hookers in his basement…

    • blueoceanboy

      Soon to be someone's bitch

    • GeneralMayhem

      You never seen a Jew before?

  • etcrr

    getting their mugswhots taken and not in handcuffs? wow

    • Dan

      Two reasons:
      1. Today's police are much more interesting in demeaning you, especially for minor crimes.
      2. If you tried anything back then, you'd have five guards beat the shit out of you.

      • thom

        What an idiotic comment. I agree with your number 2, but your 1st point is idiotic. People don't have respect for police now adays and police must handcuff the scum that they have to deal with to protect themselves.

        • etcrr

          thanks for sticking up for me thom want to be friends?

          • etcrr

            wow, I am really flattered that you like my name and are impersonating me.

            • dub

              stop voting yourself up, and voting comments down you disagree with multiple times, Stan. it's pathetic.

        • hMMMM

          not idiotic, true. how many of these guys do you think are in jail for driving on a suspended license, or not having your car registration current, or pissing on the street? I received a ticket for jaywalking last year in a suburban neighborhood, with no car in sight.

  • Anonymous

      • Troll_the_world
