Welcome To The Weekly Vice
Thank you for visiting this website/blog and taking the time to read this profile. We're glad you want to learn more about what we do here at The Weekly Vice.
Below you'll find some general questions and answers regarding the purpose of TWV and what it hopes to accomplish. The Weekly Vice currently reaches over a half million readers per month through website visits, RSS feeds and our various widget readers. Many thousands of other readers pick up Weekly Vice stories in local papers and social network sites.
We invite you to share your opinion and participate in article discussions. Opposing opinions are welcome unless you're rude - in which case two bouncers will kindly escort you to the door.
What Is The Weekly Vice?
Some have characterized the Weekly Vice as a vigilante Blog while others characterize it as a cross between The Jerry Springer Show and America's Most Wanted. It can be funny, strange and serious all at the same time. One thing it is NOT - Boring. You will not find whitewashed, moderated, glossed over nonsense news here.
Formally, The Weekly Vice was created on the realization that our laws have become so skewed toward protecting the rights of the accused, that it regularly tramples the rights of the victim.
While the jails fill up with petty drug possession charges, violent offenders and sex predators are paroled early, given house arrest or have their entire sentence suspended. NOT GOOD ENOUGH when it comes to our children.
We're here to ensure that victims of crime aren't forgotten and the predators who victimize them are shamed. We are also here to increase awareness of what goes on in your neighborhood, so you can keep your family safe. Knowledge is power.
It's a sad reality that unless the news involves Britney Spears without panties, the media is hard pressed to cover it. Other media outlets pick one story and beat it into the ground for weeks, ignoring hundreds of other stories that happen in your city each day. We aim to bridge that gap, bringing easily overlooked local stories to the national stage.
How Did The Weekly Vice Get Started
The Weekly Vice got its start in November of 2007 as a response to the Megan Meier Tragedy. Megan Meier was a 13-year-old girl who committed suicide after an adult stalked her using a MySpace Account. The adult posed as a teen boy, who would later humiliate Meier to the point of suicide. Our legal system refused to hold the adult woman accountable for her behavior.
Danny Vice began as an outspoken critic of the case, gaining the attention of the national press, fellow victim advocacy sites and thousands of readers who want our laws strengthened to better protect our children.
Since then, several writers have joined The Weekly Vice, devoted to exploring the social insanity that lives among us.
I Am Featured On The Weekly Vice And I'm Ticked! Can I Sue?
Every article is derived from sources such as police reports, jail booking reports and press releases. The Weekly Vice is not here to accuse you of a crime - we merely report what authorities say you did. And yes, we do our homework.
If you are innocent, hash it out with investigators in your case. If your mug shot is here, it really sucks to be you - however mugshots are not your property. Hash that out with your local Sheriff's Department.
Some articles have a section that is labeled the Weekly Vice Opinion. Free speech gives us a right to an opinion and a comment form is supplied so you can express yours. If you become rude and disorderly your comments will vanish shortly after you make them.
If you are found innocent at trial or your case was dropped by authorities, we want to know about it! We pledge to update articles where a suspect has been cleared as we become aware of them. If your case was dismissed, please email me so that we can let the world know of your innocence.
If you own an image or form that's been featured here - and can show that you indeed own it, I'll be happy to remove it or provide credit to you.
