30-year-old Jeremy Meeks would never have guessed that thousands of people would share and comment on his photo that is on the Stockton PD’s Facebook page but that’s what it is now.
In the Stockton PD’s Facebook post, they detailed Jeremy as one of their day’s arrests: “Jeremy Meeks, a 30 year old man, convicted felon, arrested for felony weapon charges,” part of the post attached to Jeremy’s photo read.
The Stockton Police caught Jeremy as part of their Operation Ceasefire enforcement mission. The criminal sweep was a multi-agency task force that included the Stockton PD Gang Violence Suppression Unit, Community Response Team, County Wide Gang Task Force and nine other organizations, including the FBI, according to the department’s Facebook page.
While the fact that Jeremy was arrested by the hard-working police department for an alleged crime is VERY serious, the people commenting on his facebook mugshot simply do not care.
Funny how a convicted felon gets so much attention despite his situation. Has someone in jail told him that he’s news now? in a good and bad way though.
