City Pages added the black bar across the young woman's eyes. Originally, Tripp Emmer splashed her face across his Facebook page for all the world to see. Our source is acquainted with none of the people in the picture and found the image through a rudimentary web search a year ago.
Imagine if you were that girl's father or mother and you saw that.
Imagine what it would be like to look for a job if that picture appeared under a search for your name.
