Just went and saw Kick Ass 2 with my girlfriend (which ruled) and in the movie there is a prison scene. During the scene, a cop has a prisoner around the arm and is escorting him to the cell. Naturally, the prisoner has face tattoos/piercings and black work done on his arm. Is it just me, or is this incredibly ignorant and offensive? They try to find people that close-minded, judgmental shit heads assume would be criminals and then use them for that exact rule, putting (heavily) tattooed people further into that stereotype. Even in older movies, how whenever their was a jail scene their was always a punk or a greaser in one of the cells. It’s all the same. This infuriates me because some of the most heavily tattooed people I have met are some of the most hardworking and sincere friends, parents, artists, and people in general. But until some serious changes are made, they will always be cast down for their choice to do what they want to their bodies, whether it be for self expression, respect for the art, or even just to feel a little more comfortable in their own skin. Where is the innocent and loving looking old man who got arrested for beating his wife to death? Where’s the average joe who got caught raping children, or robbing a convenience store? People will be terrible, worthless fucking people or great, open-minded, accepting, and loving individuals with or without having tattoos, body modifications, a Mohawk, or a leather jacket.
