I really don’t know how to explain this

Many of the cases on my site have photos with blue backgrounds. In America, this generally means it’s a driver’s license or official state identification photo. The cops use them pretty often when publicizing missing persons cases because the driver’s license ID photo is often the first one — and the only one — they can easily get their hands on.

In the past month I have gotten TWO emails from people claiming my blue-background photo of an MP is incorrect. In one case it was the daughter of the MP; just yesterday it was a police officer who said they were speaking for the MP’s family. So I removed the photos. I had other ones; this was not a big deal.

But I am confused. Because in both those cases, I got the blue background pics from official sources, their respective state missing persons websites. In fact, on one of those state MP websites, the blue background photo is STILL the only photo seen on that particular MP’s listing. I am wondering how the authorities could make that kind of mistake, twice. Did they just accidentally select someone from the driver’s license database who happened to have the same name? Or what?

    THat is wierd…. You siad you had other pictures of them – did they look similar?! It is very strange though – like you said they are goverment issued and are easy to access by law enforcement when researching a case. ::sigh:: Very frustrating I am sure.

    I would contact the people who told you about this. Hopefully, you were not being pranked, and send them the link where you got the photograph. If they were concerned enough to contact you about them, then they will contact the websites to correct them. The police officer who contacted you would probably do something about the one he contacted you about.

    I always wondered why backgrounds were blue and the way the MP is standing I assumed it was a driver’s license photo.

    The family musta had a family meeting or something.

    I also would contact that person that wanted the photo removed because if they want you to remove it and its still on the other site then why not bug the other person to take it off???

    I don’t understand why they would want it removed?
