Unsurprisingly, “No money like dope money” tattoo not grounds for a dependency

A Second DCA trial court found a child at risk of harm from his father because the father had gang tattoos, even though in the same breath the court acknowledged:

[O]n the other hand, he has been actively involved in his son’s life. He has stepped up to the plate in terms of providing support for the child and, most importantly, visiting the child all the time…. [H]e is doing a good job with his son right now.

Outcome? Reversed. In re J.J.V., — So.3d —-, 2012 WL 4900821 (Fla. 2nd DCA).
