Oakland to put Johns' faces on Billboards

The San Francisco Chronicle reports on Oakland's plan to put photos of men arrested for soliciting prostitutes on billboards, and discusses the return of shaming punishments more generally.  It recounts the story of a Toronto man who committed suicide after he was erroneously identified as a purchaser of internet child pornography. The article quotes Dan Markel, a soon-to-be FSU crimprof, who has written extensively in this area. [Jack Chin]
