I have no problem with people who have tattoos. I have one myself although in retrospect I wish I never got it but that’s neither here nor there. However I do have a problem with certain tattoos. Those would be the face and neck tattoos. While some tattoo and body modification enthusiasts wish that tattoos like these would be considered socially acceptable they are not. Unless you’re in a band or you’re Mike Tyson it gives off an aura of being unemployable and/or a criminal.
Case in point, our subject of today’s post, one 30-year-old Joseph Rucker McFall of Cobb County, Georgia. McFail was recently indicted for beating his then 8-week old son so violently that the boy now has permanent brain damage and is blind.
While the boy’s mother was in the hospital with pneumonia the baby was being taken care of by her mother. The grandmother left the baby in the room with tattooed loser briefly before he went running out of the house. When the grandmother returned the baby was not breathing. The boy was not expected to survive.In addition to the brain damage and blindness the baby was also said to have fractures of the ribs and arms. McFail has been in jail since October which was the time of his arrest. Thankfully the boy’s mother wants nothing to do with McFail.
If you’re wondering what the tattoo in Hebrew means supposedly it says “God has his eye on you.” Apparently McFail couldn’t heed his tattoo’s advice.
You know I just noticed that I kept writing his last name as McFail. I don’t know why that keeps happening.
