I don't know what it is about mugshots. I would assume that when you get arrested that you will feel a bit of shame. I have never been arrested so maybe I am totally wrong here. Maybe, depending on the charge there is some sense of pride.

I don't get it. I guess you know when you are arrested your mugshot will be pretty much shared all over the place. Social media has made that a thing. We have so many mugshot pages now.

Randall County has a page. Hutchinson County Does as well. Lubbock County just got one. Of course, there also is Gray County. When there are mugshots to be seen apparently these days you want yours to stick out.

The common themes I have seen? Well, there are the ones where you don't have a shirt on. That has become a thing. Then there are the ones where the person arrested wants to smile big. I guess they want mom to be proud of them for showing off their pearly whites.

Whatever the reason is there are an awful lot of mugshots with smirks and also with the biggest smiles you will ever see.

Here are the mugshots of all the happy people in Gray County.

You'd think having your mugshot taken would be far from one of your finer moments.....but these inmates prove that you can always turn that frown upside down.

Thrilled to Be There: the Smiling Mugshots of Hutchinson County

Hutchinson County has plenty of people who have committed a criminal blunder (or two). And just like any other bigger city, jail is no fun. However, some of the residents of Borger and Stinnett are believers in keeping their spirits high in the face of adversity.

Not sure what we mean?

Well....let's just say that Randall County's cheerful inmates aren't the only ones who seem happy to be arrested....While there’s nothing funny about committing a crime, these offenders in Hutchinson County certainly do know how to light up a pod with their smile :-)
