Teen Girl's 'Cute' Mugshot Goes Viral (PHOTO)

Apologies to anyone trying to raise their children to believe that what's on the inside counts most -- the mad, mad world is working against us today, I'm afraid. A North Carolina teen girl was arrested for some heavy duty drug charges. But instead of feeling, oh I don't know, guilt, shame, and remorse, she took to Twitter and showed off her "cute" mugshot photo. And legions of admirers have shared the tweet and started following her. Because we are all officially off our rockers.


Alysa Suguro Bathrick, 18, was arrested on charges of possession with an intent to manufacture, sell or deliver Schedule IV controlled substances -- which she reportedly revealed on Twitter translates to: she was trying to sell Xanax. A few days ago, she decided to follow in the footsteps of "hot" prisoner Jeremy Meeks -- whom you may remember nearly secured himself a modeling contract for being the best looking dude in jail.

She posted her mugshot with the caption, "Surrendered myself at 7 a.m., got released at 11:30 a.m. F**k what you heard. And my mugshot's cute."

Alysa knew what she was doing because her post garnered tons of attention. Followers are tweeting messages to her like "Youre such a beauty" and "I would so go to jail to see you."

Is anyone embarrassed by anything they do anymore or have we gone so far off the deep end that we think beauty excuses all actions?

I'm not saying this teen is a bad person because she made a dumb mistake. I don't know a single thing about her (other than the fact that she has glossy hair). But should we really be focusing on her beauty -- or on the fact that she may end up in prison one day and the immediate thrill she's getting from this attention isn't going to last?

What do you think about the attention this teen is getting for her mugshot?
