You’ve probably heard about this Jeremy Meeks character, dubbed by a whole lot of people as the “hot convict” because of his supposedly flattering mugshot.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t really like the positive attention this guy is getting. I mean, really? Regardless of his looks, he’s been convicted of multiple charges.

Below are such charges which I speak of.

  1. He was arrested for street terrorism

This is something, seeing he’s endangered the lives on citizens and residents on the streets. According to Chapter 186 Sec. 21 of the California law, over 600 street gangs are present and have been disturbing the peace of citizens. Would you want Meeks and his friends in your neighborhood? I think not.

  1. He’s a six-time felon

Regardless of how good looking he is, it can’t be denied that he’s been in and out of prison over the years. This goes to show that he isn’t just some run-off-the-mill crook—he’s a hardened criminal and he won’t stopping anytime soon.

  1. He’s considered one of the most violent criminals in the area

The Stockton Police Department has classified Meeks as one of the most dangerous people in the neighborhood. You see, he’s no nice guy. As I said, he’s pretty hardened and has engaged in criminal behavior ever since. He isn’t afraid to use excessive force. Perhaps that’s why he’s seen as a notorious figure among authorities.

  1. His tear tattoo signifies that he’s killed someone

You know the tear tattoo? It’s allegedly a gang sign indicating murder. That’s right—Jeremy Meeks has killed someone—and he’s proud of it. After all, why would he allow himself to get a tattoo like that?

  1. Despite all that, his mugshot has gotten over 100,000 likes

It’s one of those things which make me wonder. I understand that people find him attractive, but this has turned into somewhat of an obsession. They overlook Meeks’s charges, focusing merely on his turquoise eyes and olive skin. It’s unfathomable, I tell you. And I don’t think I need to say anything more.

How about you? What do you think about Jeremy Meeks and this whole affair? Does he deserve all the superficial praise he’s getting? Or should he be treated a criminal, like many gang members like himself? Let me know in the comments below.
