America’s Most Wanted

Clear Channel has announced it will be donating the use of electronic billboards across the country for posting mugshots of America’s Most Wanted, presumably to speed up the apprehension of dangerous criminals. Side effect: having to live under the gaze of smirking killers. Elevating fear-mongering to outdoor advertising heights.

Were John Wayne Gacy or Ted Bundy or that cannibal in Wisconsin ever featured on America’s Most Wanted? Have any active serial killers ever been targeted for capture? Who are the real public enemies which would merit a public’s vigilance? It’s bad enough to have to see the mugshots in the newspaper, or on the wall in the post office. Now commuters have to look up at ugly lawbreakers who’ve made the big time like Pia Zadora over Sunset Avenue?
