    I believe the tear drop tattoo means he has killed someone in gang terms! If that is true then he does not belong on the streets!

    If given a second chance he needs to clean up his act for his son. Get serious about life. Go into acting or modeling and put them all to shame. With proper the manager and training/acting/modeling classes I can see him being a spokesperson for many products/production. Those tats can be covered be covered up with Derma Blend. Hollywood Big Wigs take notice…. here is your next ”50 Shades” man.

    Jeremy Meeks’s act is all cleaned up, all he has to do is get those gang tattoo’s removed that way his son doesn’t get or want tats like his daddy, he is 1 sexy man but them old tattoos is whats going to keep this hunk in trouble with the police… I hope you get set free Jeremy and if you do PLEEEEASE get them tats removed so you won’t get fucked with anymore in the future and your son can have his daddy 100%

    If he had the guns and ammo in possession as stated then he was not targeted as the mom says. i’ve worked in a prison and there are lots of good looking men in there and they were not there for being sunday school boys (if you know what i mean). if he is out of the gang good for him, but this is a mama talking for her son who only tells her what HE wants her to know or to think, this is also from a mom who has a son in prison. hope things work out for the best

    Forget about his looks and let’s get back on topic. What’s wrong with him possessing guns? Isn’t he a card-carrying member of the NRA? What about his rights to bear arms?

    I was googeling for tidal power and came across your Jeremy Meeks being called a “Working man with a son” | FOX2now.com page. My greatest concern is power, unless we end using dirty energy the earth is going to be in serious trouble.
    I am amazed scientists are not looking at using more clean energy like Tidal Power similar to CrowdEnergy.org. If we dont solve this problem now its going to get worse.
    Thank you, Walstrom
