Does This Look Like the Face of a Man Arrested for Getting a Tattoo of a Pig in a Cop Uniform With a Gun In Its Mouth?
Twin Cities.com- A man charged for showing the world his new tattoo, which menaced a cop, pleaded guilty to making terroristic threats Monday and got probation. “Next time you want to get a tattoo, flowers would be nice,” the judge told the man nicknamed “Savage,” who police and prosecutors say is a member of the Bloods street gang. Prosecutors offered Jenkins a deal after he had parts of the tattoo obliterated with black ink. “It’s basically a black spot now,” said Jenkins’ public defender, Cynthia McCollum. Jenkins of Richfield was charged last November with a felony count of making a terroristic threat after a Hennepin County deputy spotted a photo of the man’s tattoo on Facebook — where it had gotten 18 “likes” — and notified Minneapolis police. The tattoo on Jenkins’ left bicep depicted a person holding a handgun with the barrel in the mouth of a pig. “The pig is wearing a police hat and uniform with a patch on the right shoulder with ‘Mpls. 8230′ and a nameplate with the name ‘J. Seidel’ under the patch,” the criminal complaint said. “Below the ‘J. Seidel’ were the words ‘F— the police.’ ” When Jenkins posted the photo on Facebook, he added the caption, “My tattoo iz a pig get’n his brains blew out.”
Got to love Antonio opting to go with the symbolic route and then still deciding to beat subtlety to death with a rusty spiked bat. Like he could have gone with a pig with a gun in its mouth and called it a day. To a layperson he would appear to be a farmer or perhaps a slaugtherhouse employee, but anyone in the know would realize what he was really saying. But then he went and threw on the badge and name tag of a real actual cop and an admittedly trite “Fuck the Police” for good measure. That’s when the police tend to get a bit upset. And don’t even get me started on the plea deal. Public Defender Cynthia McCollum making Goldy the Gopher proud. Was covering everything in black ink was really the best option there? Now he’s walking around with a black spot tattooed on his body. Not a good look. It’s like he’s asking to get attacked by pirates.
