From a recent Minneapolis Star-Tribune story:
The tattoo on Jenkins’ [the dude pictured above; sadly, no pic of the tattoo itself] left bicep depicts a person holding a semi-automatic handgun with the barrel of the gun partially in the mouth of a pig, according to a criminal complaint. The tattoo includes the officer’s name (although it’s misspelled), his badge number and an expletive directed at police. The Facebook post on Jenkins’ page also includes a message about the tattoo: “My tattoo iz a pig get’n his brains blew out.” According to the criminal complaint, 18 people gave the post a “thumbs-up” (or “like”) response.
The officer, a 22-year veteran and a member of the gang investigation team, works in the Third Precinct, an area of the city that includes territory “traditionally claimed by the Bloods,” the complaint said. The officer, who saw the Facebook post Oct. 30, considered it a direct threat against his life. His family is in “fear as a result,” the complaint said.
Jenkins is charged with “terroristic threats (for the benefit of a gang)” which carries a penalty of up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
