Worst Police Sketch Ever: TX Cops Release Sketch of Robbery Suspect ...Looks Like a Bad Cartoon
The Daily Mail ^ | 21 January 2014 | Sara Malm

Is this the worst police sketch ever? Police release likeness of armed robbery suspect that looks more like a CARTOON than a person

• Texas police release 'cartoon' e-fit sketch of suspected robber

• The person on the sketch lacks lips, irises and even eyebrows

• It depicts a suspect in an armed robbery which took place last week

• A man held two women at knife point in Lamar County, Paris

Police in Texas have released a sketch of a suspected robber, but unless they are looking for Morph, they might struggle to locate him.

The e-fit was sent out by Lamar County Sheriff’s Department after two women were robbed at knife point in Paris, Texas last Thursday.

However, the poorly drawn composite sketch looks more like a cartoon character than a human being.

The e-fit sketch released by Lamar County Sheriff;s Dept. in search of a supect in an armed robbery. photo article-0-1AD7C44B00000578-15_634x484_zpsc764846c.jpg

The man depicted in the sketch allegedly robbed the two women around 11am on Thursday as they approached a house in East Post Oak Community in Lamar County, Paris.

The man, described as 6ft tall with short black hair, a round face and tattoos on his arms and neck threatened the women with a knife, demanding money.

When given when he wanted, the man fled on foot, Lamar County Sheriff’s Department told eParisExtra.

The sheriff’s department stresses that the sketch is ‘not a true depiction of the suspect, only a likeness,’ the website said.

This artist is even a worse police sketch artist than Peter Griffin.

It is not too bad for an amateur. Obviously, the person is not an artist. Maybe a tight budget at the PD and they asked someone who claimed that they could draw compose the picture?

OMG - that is so bad. ROTFL

Actually that drawing could be quite accurate. Without a picture of the perp you really can’t tell.

I have taken several classes in portrait drawing. It is difficult to get a likeness when you are sitting there looking at the person but try to imagine drawing what someone TELLS you the person looks like.

The witness may be traumatized and only got a glimpse of the perp, that would make it even harder.

I have often wondered if they show the witness pictures of different eyes, noses, mouths and other features and let the witness select the ones that look like the person as they remember him.

The obviously did not do that in this case.

Too funny....I retired from law enforcement a year ago. I was a forensic artist for 20 of my 25 years on the department. My last month I taught a composite sketch course for officers so the department could continue to produce quality suspect sketches. In one of the drawing exercises, I had them draw Kim Jon Un from my description....

I noticed the link address included the word “Encrypted”, so I followed it to it’s original source and got a copyright notice from the SUN. So I asked the mods to pull it and I posted a different pic of him.

I have taken several classes in portrait drawing. It is difficult to get a likeness when you are sitting there looking at the person but try to imagine drawing what someone TELLS you the person looks like.

They pull out transparencies of eyes, noses, mouths, etc.

The composite is made from pieces that match the descriptions.

Or at least at some places.
