Jacob Joseph Medina: You can tell who sexually violent predator is by F-word tattoo over his eye

In March, we told you about the search for and capture of Jacob Joseph Medina, sexually violent predator. Well, here we go again. Medina was supposed to register with the Denver Police Department on August 4, but didn't -- so a warrant has been issued for his arrest. And as a bonus, the cops are noting a hard-to-see detail in the mug shot seen here: Medina has the word "fuck" tattooed over his right eye. Look below to see it supersized. Here's the original release about Medina, from back in March:
