Missing Mugshot? Brock Turner’s Stanford Yearbook Pic in Lieu of Booking Photo Causes Outrage
A strange thing happens when one types “Brock Turner mugshot,” or “Brock mug shot,” or “Brock Allen Turner booking photo” into Google or when searching Google Images for Turner’s mugshot. Unlike most people convicted of sexual assault, Brock’s mugshot does not readily appear anywhere online. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Turner was found guilty on three charges of sexual assault against a rape survivor who published a powerful impact letter that has gotten more than one million views in 24 hours.
However, a search for Brock’s mugshot in Google Images only results in photos of Turner in anything other than a booking photo. There are photos of Turner in court. There are photos of Brock in his Stanford yearbook attire of a suit and tie. There are also photos of Brock doing what he does best in the swimming pool, wearing goggles and a swimming cap, just hanging out in a pool after besting his swim meet times.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––

The difference in the privileges being afforded Brock are not lost on the online community, which is growing in outrage over the fact that Turner’s mugshot photo isn’t the first thing attached to articles about Brock’s sexual assault in the press. However, the media alone cannot be blamed for Turner’s mugshot photo not appearing online. A search for “Brock Allen Turner booking photo” results in no mugshots for Turner easily found online.
The images tab of Twitter after a search for “mugshot” shows some of the mugshots of folks who’ve gone viral lately, like the attractive female with the come-hither mugshot, or the crying felon, but none of Turner’s mugshots appear therein.
Instead, strange Facebook pages like one titled Brock Turner For 2016 Olympics in support of Brock appear online.
