Criticism, mug shots are also public domain, blog post by John
For a while I was wondering who was the man in this image, which was posted on the Facebook profile of James Early, a/k/a James BD'dis BD'dat Early on Facebook. I ever wondered if it might be somebody else named Early, given the fact the image seemed like an object of reverence as one might revere an ancestor.
Well, Tin Eye search engine strikes again! Last night...
I used "Tin Eye" to determine the origins of a photo posted to the Facebook page of the baby's mother, which allows me to ask incredible questions albeit not, quite yet, draw any incredible conclusions. But after a handful of commenters all said, oh, that's Black Disciples Gang Leader David Barksdale, I thought, well, how can I prove that most directly?
Back I went to the Tin Eye search engine. And, sure enough, I turned up a link to a story about gangs, click here. A link within the story took me to a Wikipedia page about David Barksdale.
So the baby shooter reveres gang leader David Barksdale.
Now that God has answered our prayers and the baby is conscious, let's hope Child Protective Services answers our prayers and puts that baby into protective custody and, ultimately, a permanent adoption placement.
