Editorial: Dear Faye & Judge Weill....

Note: We goofed. Faye Peterson became attorney of record for Williams on February 11. I missed that filing and have no one to blame but myself.  Corrections have been made to the story.  The initial post named Hinds County Public Defender Michelle Purvis and her office as the attorneys for Williams.


It appears the trial for one of our Northeast Jackson hoodlums, Frankie Williams, was postponed due to the unavailability of defense counsel (see documents posted below.)  Mr. Williams has been charged with a variety of crimes over the past year.  He was no billed by a grand jury for aggravated assault and arrested for aggravated assault again after he allegedly tried to shoot his cousin.  JPD consider the resident of Clair Street to be one of the "superstars" of burglaries in Precinct 4.  JPD crime reports state house burglaries in Precinct 4 are down from 202 a year ago to 116 on May 10.  This is probably due in no small part to the fact that Frankie Williams, Brodrick Robinson, and Tommy Young are in jail awaiting trial.   JJ reported earlier this year:

A different point of view for Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day.  Remembering those who died serving our country is the theme across America today.  However, JJ is going to publish something different in tone but remembering those who served.  I first came across this essay in college and its one of those that  stayed in my mind ever since.  The author respects the vets but then says what he really thinks about society.  Many veterans share his opinion and one can hardly blame them.

Sometimes thinking can be a dangerous thing. One idea floated around across the pond is giving the government all of our money. Your money, in effect, would really not be your money and you would be allowed to use your money only as the government saw fit.  Jim Leavess writes in the Telegraph (UK):

Dee Robinson never worked at Mercedes-Benz

Guttalife Dee Robinson never worked at the local Mercedes-Benz dealership. Trudy Higgingbotham-Moddy sent this email and comment to JJ:

Mercedes-Benz of Jackson can confirm that Edwin Robinson has never been employed by our firm. We understand that Robinson has Mercedes-Benz of Jackson listed as his employer on his Facebook page but this is not true, and no one at the dealership has any relation to him. We have advanced security protocols in place to keep customer information classified as well as to monitor our hiring process including performing extensive background checks on any person under consideration for employment. Our thoughts go out to those affected by the incident on Sunday morning.

Kingfish note: And that, my friends, is the bottom line. That is also leadership.

Owners kick Chirag & Desomnd to the curb. Literally.

The owner of the convenience store at the corner of Northside Drive and Bailey Avenue that has been the subject of much controversy moved to evict the operators of the convenience store for non-payment of rent yesterday.   Balbir Singh and Jaswinder Singh filed an eviction notice (posted below) on May 19 against Chirag Kharbanda.  The notice cited non-payment of rent as the basis for the eviction.  The notice also claims Mr. Kharbanda owes $19,500 in rent.  The shooting of a Jackson police officer took place at the convenience store Sunday night.  Meanwhile, Desmond griped about the police in this video he shot Sunday night.  Note to Desmond: Learn how to shoot in landscape mode.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
