To Err is Human, But This is Asinine
Robert Norton Kennedy, 51, of Little River, S.C., lives by a motto: “WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. GOD LOVES YOU. Please forgive me if I say or do anything stupid. Thank You!” Kennedy came to the attention of the Horry County Police when neighbors called them, saying Kennedy had been playing loud music all day, and “verbally assaulting” them. When officers arrived, Kennedy allegedly spat in a neighbor’s face, which led to his arrest for assault and battery. And how do we know what Kennedy’s motto might be? Well, it’s tattooed across his forehead, and clearly visible in his resulting mug shot. (RC/WBTW Florence) …Let’s just say he isn’t exactly prescient for thinking he might “say or do anything stupid.”

Of course this all begs the question: if he’s such a God-fearing, sweet man, what is he doing playing music so loud it bothers his neighbors during the daytime, “verbally assaulting” them, and then spitting in someone’s face?
He’s not the first man to hit the pages of True sporting a tattoo on his forehead. Because, well, what kind of citizen do you think have tattoos on their foreheads?
