Standardised Criminal Masks

Lose the blurry head

Alleged criminals - and often victims suffer from the blurred/pixelated facial effect when televised so as to hide their identity.

Why not supply the media/courts/police with standard masks that can be worn when the 'anonomi' is to enter a public place.

I keep thinking of a big yellow smily face/head - but with a frown.

Or maybe a standardised pair of sunglasses that are shaped like a big black rectangle, that can be worn for photographs - with tiny little apertures around the eyeholes so you can still see.

       They should all wear masks of famous porn stars in tribute to the late greats. Porn stars and advertisements for flea markets throughout the south and southwest.

       Why not a mask that looks like a bunch of pixels? Then they could save the TV people all that trouble.

       Just give them enough alcohol to make them go blurry.

       Wear a mask in the likeness of someone you don't like.

       The famously anonymous brown paper bag would be fitting.
