Reputed gang member arrested for violent tattoo

| No Comments

Police arrested a reputed gang member after he posted a picture of his graphic tattoo on Facebook.
The Pioneer Press reported that Antonio Frasion Jenkins Jr., 20, was charged with making a terroristic threat for the benefit of a gang.
The bicep tattoo showed a person holding a gun to the mouth of a pig wearing a Minneapolis police uniform, including the misspelled name and badge number of a police officer who works in the Third Precinct, according to the Star Tribune.
The Third Precinct covers much of South Minneapolis, and is an area claimed by the 'Bloods' gang.
According to report by the Star Tribune, there are many questions as to how the police will be able to proceed.
A professor from the University of Minnesota's Law School told the Pioneer Press that since Jenkins publicly displayed his tattoo, the private nature and free speech aspect of it is undermined.
