"Hot mugshot" felon scores modeling agent

  1. The felon whose mugshot got over 100,000 likes on Facebook and scores of women gushing over him now has a potential modeling career if he ever gets out of jail. This has got to be a symptom of what is wrong with society today. :-s

  2. It's things like this that made me feel abhorred and repulsed by our current society.
  3. Couldn't have said it better.
  4. Submitted without comment. :p

  5. Woah, a whole new perspective!
  6. I have no problem with people getting a second chance to do something more positive. If they take that chance and screw up again, that's a different matter.
  7. I also believe in second chances...but with a nail of over a million dollars, I can't help but feel that he has already had several chances.
  8. Second chances, schmecond chances. . .

    Jeremy’s 2002 crime is downright chilling. Jeremy “was charged in 2002 with robbery and corporal injury to a child,” according to TMZ. “He allegedly jumped a 16-year-old and beat him to a pulp.” After making a plea deal, the report states that Jeremy was sentenced to a two-year stint in a California prison. During this time, Jeremy admitted that he was affiliated with a gang — he was a Northside Gangster Crip.


    Jeremy Meeks If I Can't Dress Like A Model ... You Can't Take My Photo

    7/3/2014 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

    Jeremy Meeks is NOT ready for his closeup -- Dreamy McMug wants to BAN all cameras from his court hearing ... since the judge is forcing him to dress like a common criminal.

    Meeks' attorney will file a motion this morning to prevent the media from taking ANY photographs or video of the hearing set for next week.

    It's kind of a last ditch effort -- as TMZ first reported ... the judge already shot down Meeks' request to wear custom-fitted clothes to court instead of his orange jumpsuit and shackles.

    The docs are hilarious ... the lawyer says Meeks' mug shot has been shown by tens of thousands of media outlets, and has "become woven in the fabric of pop culture."

    His point -- there's now so much media interest in Meeks -- who's facing weapons charges -- that if he's seen in jail duds, it will make him look guilty and hurt his chances of getting an unbiased jury.

  9. I am playing the world's smallest violin.

  10. I do agree on second chances as well (though depends on the scenario if he was some murderer or something) but consider this is not his first offense (Swanky's post), all bets are off.
  11. To be (somewhat) fair, he was 18 at the time. They make it sound like a grown adult man beat up a child. He was two years older than his victim. I would think this kind of thing is extremely common in the gang world - not that I'm justifying it.
    Other than that, I have no comment. :p
  12. Come on, now.
    That man is fine.
    Can he model from prison?
    If yes, why not let him learn a way to get out of the gangs?
  13. He took a good pic, his trashy a$$ isn't "fine". lol!!
  14. He did absolutely nothing to deserve the fame, attention, and moneymaking opportunities that are being heaped upon him. He was born looking the way he does and he took a great picture that day. In truth it is the photographer who deserves the real credit for taking a spectacular photo!

    So many women have posted fan messages going on and on about how gorgeous he is and how much they want him. He's a criminal, but since he's good-looking we should cut him some slack and give him a chance. It's nuts!

    From a cultural standpoint, this story shows how a handsome man can have his crimes (and faults) overlooked in ways his uglier counterparts cannot. But I guess we already knew that.
  15. I get your point, so why do the kardashians have fame?
