I've always heard people say that all the fine men are in jail/prison, but I didn't believe that until the above picture came across my timeline on Facebook.
This mug shot of 30 year old Jeremy Meeks has caused quite a stir with the females (and some males) on the internet after the Stockton, Ca police department posted his pic, along with some other suspects, after they were arrested in a gun sting operation.
Here is how Fox 40 is reporting the story:
Four people were arrested and four guns were seized in an Operation Ceasefire sweep in Stockton’s Weston Ranch area Wednesday.
Police say a recent uptick in crime in that area led to search warrants being served at 11 different locations.
Officers arrested 30-year-old Jeremy Meeks, 22-year-old Terry Bailey, 18-year-old Jurzi Coleman and 44-year-old Joelin Coleman, all on felony weapon charges.
The four guns seized were two rifles, a handgun and a shotgun.
Since this story has aired, Jeremy Meeks’ mugshot has gotten a lot of online attention from people more concerned about his looks than his crimes.
Comments like “he’s hot”, “is it illegal to be that sexy?”, etc. accompany his picture posted on FOX40′s and the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook pages. At one point, about 24 hours after the photos were posted to the department’s page, Meeks’ photo had more than 15,000 “likes” and 3,700 comments, meanwhile Terry Bailey, who was arrested for the same crimes during the same police sweep as Meeks, only had 14 “likes” and 4 comments. Is it all in the eyes?
While he's trying to be a gangsta, Jeremy probably should have tried his hands at modeling. Just don't make no damn sense!
