Don't think too much about it. All I see is an unstable person.

Well, one weird thing to think about is:

This is a mugshot, it was probably taken during booking....

Today in court, the drawings indicate that he had hair and eyebrows

I noticed that as well. Something is fishy about that.

With due respect to bigfatfurrytexan, I must say I look at the forensics analysis picture and believe the mug shot might well have been manipulated. The FA shot registers different colors every time a .jpeg image is "saved". What I see in the FA shot are obvious "squares" and rectangular shapes of similar color, different from their immediate surroundings. I'm wondering if those would be manipulated areas.

This is a thread I was sure would show up, and here it is. Wouldn't surprise me in the least if it's true too.

I had never seen that analysis tool, so I played with it a little.
I uploaded a picture that I knew had not been edited. Then uploaded the same picture with a very sloppy edit just about dead center of the picture.

Even knowing where the edit is, I don't recognize any giveaways in the analysis tool picture. But I also have no idea how to interpret the data.

How far down the rabbit hole do we intend on taking this?
Especially with his association to this site, I think it is in our best interest to not throw crap against the wall to see if it will stick. I'm with Main Stream Media for the first time on this: You Guys Are Fuggin Nuts!!!!!!!

Just throwing this out there for you. Just because we do not see any hair or eyebrows in his mugshot doesn't mean he didn't have them. Here is a good example of that...

You can clearly see eyebrows in this pic.

and then a mugshot of the same person.

As you can see his eyebrows do not show up in the mugshot above. Also remember that law enforcement don't have a top of the line camera for mugshots. The pics above are Josh Brolin.

If you look closely at his mugshot the top of his head shows a stubble that one gets from having shaved their heads.I know this because it happens to me every time I shave my head and it starts to grow back.Just as a 5 o'clock shadow on the face.

The dark areas under is eyes could be from drug use especially if that drug is meth.Since meth users are up for days at a time they tend to get these puffy dark areas under their eyes.Just as a member said earlier if you Google meth user pics you can see more pics of what happens to them. Now I am not going to say he was on meth as I do not know,but he does have the look in his eyes.So IMO this is not a hoax.

Lastly this is my opinion on him smiling that way. Most people know that if they kill someone they are looking at usually a death sentence, but if you can convince the court that you are crazy you will not be given a death sentence, but you will most likely be sent to a mental institution to live the rest of your life. What would you prefer sitting in a prison cell waiting to die or a mental institution where you can live and not have a death sentence.I am not saying that is what he is doing because this man looks to have a serious mental problem.

When you look at this mans mugshot you see him smiling. There seems to be a growing trend with smiling in mugshots nowadays. Here are a few examples of that.

and here is a little montage of smiling mugshots.

So to some people getting arrested and hamming it up for your mugshot seems to be the thing to do.As for Loughner his smile seems to be one of those look what I did and I am proud of it.Here are some links to see more of these type pics.

Is it plausible to pull off this hoax? Can the many people who know the real Jared Loughner be tricked, brainwashed, paid off, threatened to be silenced?
There have never been any ID photos which did not look like the person photoed if you discount all those which did not look like the person photoed.
There is a very attractive girl where I work but for some reason I have the hardest time getting her to look good when I need a picture of her. I have concluded she is an alien.
No conspiracy here, Jared Loughner is an alien.

I agree 100%. The photo has been manipulated and they're creating his image in a number of different ways.

I noticed in a New York Times article today, on page 6 they say that Jared had a shaved head and shaved eyebrows.

"At a small local branch of a major bank, for example, the tellers would have their fingers on the alarm button whenever they saw him approaching. It was not just his appearance — the pale shaved head and eyebrows — that unnerved them. "

and then on page 7, the article later moves to an interview with the taxi driver and states: "Then out came his customer, just another customer, a normal-looking young man. Climbing into the back seat, the man said he needed to go to the Safeway supermarket"

So make up your mind! Which is it?! Did he have a shaved head and shaved eyebrows or was he just another normal looking young man.

I remember people commenting, all over the internet, that how scary it was because Jared Loughner looked like your average every day kid. Like in this photo:

The mugshot does look altered to me. A police beating makes the most sense. Fear mongering also could work. The strangest thing is the black outline around his white t-shirt (collar, shoulders). It's so odd. Why would they do that? No t-shirt is like that. Too cover up blood, perhaps?

Posted this in another thread,which is closed, so I put this up here.

Before you get to crazy calling this mugshot as being manipulated, I think you may want to see a couple of things...

First the mugshot of Jared Loughner

Yes, you see a black outline with his shirt, but now look at the following pics...

Please notice the black outline in the pictures above and you will see the same thing in all three pictures.A black outline, so I would have to say the pics of Jared Loughner are not doctored but what we see is because of the camera and lighting that is used for mugshots.Police departments aren't using the best cameras available. A link to some mugshots that you can see the pics I provided and more...

Okay, how about we take a look at the sketches of Jared Loughner in court that was done by the sketch artist that was there.

and this one..

For more than 30 years, Maggie Keane has sketched courtroom scenes from high-profile cases where cameras aren't allowed. In the weeks ahead, Keane will be inside a U.S. District courtroom in Phoenix where she will sketch suspected Tucson shooter Jared Loughner in what she believes will be the most intense case she has witnessed since the trial involving the murder of Arizona Republic investigative reporter Don Bolles, who died after his car was blown up by a remote-controlled bomb detonated by John Harvey Adamson in June 1976.

Here is a link to the story about Maggie Keane....

Just because someone has a shaved head and eyebrows doesn't mean he couldn't be a normal looking young man. Nowadays a shaved head is fairly common. Did you ever think the cab driver may have been commenting about his demeanor, like he wasn't acting suspicious to the cab driver but just acting like most young men?

Before going their separate ways, Mr. Marino recalled, Mr. Loughner asked, “Can I shake your hand?”

That to me seems something that any young man would do. That is something that I would do.(shaking hands with the cab driver. Not the killing of people) Think about it what does a normal young man look like nowadays? What one person sees as not normal another may think is normal.
