Photogenic Felon

, , , , , ,


Jeremy Meeks, a blue-eyed 30-year-old ex-convict got arrested in Stockton, California last Wednesday during a weapons sweep, when police found a .45 pistol in the trunk of his car. Mr. Meeks previously served two years for grand theft, and has tattoos implying that he is affiliated with the Crips gang and has previously killed someone.

The Stockton police make a practice of posting their most recent mug shots on-line, and the arrest photo of Jeremy Meeks immediately went viral on the Internet, causing women (and Andrew Sullivan) to swoon over the convict’s ethnically-diverse good looks.

The story of the excitement over the photo even gained international coverage by British newspapers like the Daily Mail. And Meeks’ mugshot has also become the object of the latest Photoshop humor meme. Buzzfeed

Well, he IS good-looking, if a bit thuggish. Not a fan of tats, myself, though.

My biggest issue is his intelligence… if you’re going to kill someone, it’s not wise to advertise the fact with a tattooed tear, if you ever plan to rejoin civil society again.

Problem is, each of those throbbing hearts presumes he would only beat for them. Not likely, judging by that face.

Alright, I take it back, having read the lengthier articles.

Good photo, praise the photographer. Not nearly so attractive in the others.


Welcome to the future. Mr. Meeks is the definitive 21st Century Ameri-Kwan. If our Glorious Leader had a son, he’d look exactly like this. Diversity is our strength.
