From The Smoking Gun:

FEBRUARY 2–Fresh from prison, an Ohio man with the word “Genius” tattooed on his forehead is facing an assault charge for allegedly striking a pregnant woman in the head with a gun.

Jerome Smith, 27, was arrested yesterday for allegedly battering Tiera Bryant Saturday at a Cincinnati residence. Bryant is eight months pregnant, according to an affidavit filed in Hamilton County Municipal Court.

[pictured], Smith is jailed in lieu of $50,000 bond. Along with his questionable “Genius” ink, Smith has “Omerta” tattooed on his throat. The Italian word’s common definition refers to the Mafia’s code of silence.


  1. I love Cynical-C and all the folks who bother to read and comment but seriously folks, does anything more need to be said here? I know, I know, funny quips are irresistible, however…some things speak for themselves.

  2. Can someone seriously give me a cogent reason why we should let people like this walk the streets? The evidence is literally on his face (and neck).

    Just throw him in prison for the rest of his life. He’s not worth saving, he’s beyond rehabilitation.

    1. People like you caused him to get those tattoos by throwing him in prison.

      “The [tattoos] serve the same purpose in prison as when certain nonpoisonous animals are colored like the poisonous ones to keep predators away. Someone with prominent gang tats isn’t to be fucked with, and that’s why they’re so big, bold, and offensive in prison. They need to be readily visible and memorable, they need to make people say “oh Slim? That cat with a swastika on his forehead?” You go to some yards and it ill be like, well look at this guy, he’s squeamish about getting lightning bolts on his neck- either he hasn’t the stomach for this gangster shit, or he’s just some taxpayer doing a couple years for some bullshit and wants to be able to get a job when he gets out. So he’s going to get got.”

      The website I got this from is down though 🙁
