NECI President accuses Robert Graham of fraud (Video)

Charles Carter accused Hinds County Supervisor Robert Graham of fraud at a press conference in front of Jackson City Hall Monday. Mr. Carter is the President of the National Emergency Communications Institute. NECI provides 911 certification courses to first responders nationwide. WLBT, Fox40, and the Clarion-Ledger were present. Mr. Carter issued a press release that is posted below.

Mr. Carter alleged Mr. Graham was authorized to provide NECI courses and 911 certifications in Mississippi. Mr. Graham was required to use NECI training manuals and materials to issue such certifications. Mr. Carter said Mr. Graham instead took manuals from another company not certified in Mississippi, inserted some of his own material, and passed it off as his own instead of ordering manuals from NECI. He then alleged Mr. Graham then provided NECI certifications even though he did not use NECI training manuals. Mr. Graham would charge $495 for the course and was supposed to forward $95 to NECI. The agencies reimbursed their employees the $495 fee upon completion of the course. Mr. Carter said few manuals were ordered from NECI while many NECI certifications were provided by Mr. Graham.

Mr. Carter claimed the certifications were not valid and the state made the decision to recognize them anyway. Mr. Carter argued such recognition violated the law. Mr. Carter said he visited Jackson to meet with an unnamed agency and seek prosecution of Mr. Graham for the alleged fraud. Mr. Carter claimed the fraud took place from 1995 to 2006 and he has been pursuing charges against Mr. Graham since he discovered the alleged fraud in 2006.

Just a white guy running his mouth and getting involved in the effort to suppress blacks when it is their turn to reap the benefits of government service.

And yet there are idiots like "Offtha" who will allege that this is just a bunch of white people Repubs looking to take a brotha down for doing business with other blacks. Sad how he and so many others like him could care less about gov't corruption as long as its about racial revenge...turnabout's fair play.

I've heard people argue that Martin Luther King died so that black politicians could be just as corrupt as white politicians. It's almost a funny line until one finds himself on the wrong end of such corruption. We can do better than move the bottom rail to the top.

Why is the Fondren Bugle silent on this? Oh, wait...

I noticed they asked Graham for a rebuttal that was telivised and the "loot" appeared a little nervous in front of the camera. He still claimed it was a political ploy to discredit him.

Shadowfax said...

A "Political Ploy"? What is Mr. Carter's political position?

On a related note, I saw Slick-Louis Armstrong on television this morning shucking and jiving about free transportation to some place or other for free services. Or at least he thinks they are 'free'.

Charles D. Carter said...

I judged Robert Graham "by the content of his character, not the color of his skin" as desired by Martin Luther King.

I call him a criminal because it is his character, not because of the color of his skin.

Being black is no excuse for committing crimes, especially when hiding behind a badge.

Mr.Carter I feel disrespected that this "reserve" officer has a badge . He brings shame to us real police who actually attended an academy and are state certified to do this job. "Lie"utenant Graham my ass.

It is not about race.

BUT if a white elected politician here in Hinds County had been presenting himself locally and around the country as a sworn Lieutenant of the Jackson Police Department for more than a decade when he was not you can damn well bet your last dollar that the black community would be in an uproar about the police impersonation.

You can bet that last dollar that Derrick Johnson, Lambright, Chokwe, Kenny and Donna Ladd would be holding press conferences demanding an investigation. It is part of the double standard that goes to the core of the explanation as to why people are leaving Jackson and Hinds County in droves.

When you can dispense professional services contracts to anyone you choose in direct violation of state law and NO ONE in a position of oversight will stop you then you understand the prognosis for Patient Jackson and Patient Hinds is terminal.

Someone please explain to me why convicted felon Louis Armstrong is working for the city. That lowlife piece of shit should still be in jail, or run out of town.

12:49. If he were white, and caught bribing the sleezy owner of a titty bar, he would have been, but the brothers have different standards, apparantly.

Now there is evidence that Graham has been ripping off at least two companies and falsified a JPD purchase order. No telling how many other companies are out there from whom he has appropriated their intellectual property and work products for financial gain.

I was curious as to the identity of the male WLBT reporter asking the questions -- the tone of his questions sounded to me as if he was out to discredit Mr. Carter (though I could be wrong. example: "I guess I don't understand how your company lost money" at 7:44, where he also referred to Mr. Graham as "Robert" ). I visited the WLBT website and found David Kenney's bio, under which is a photo of Kenney standing with Robert Graham (in uniform)... I thought this was interesting, since none of the other staff bios had supplementary photos. Made me wonder if maybe he is friends with Graham, hence the tone of the questions.
Though, I could be mistaken about the identity of the reporter and the tone of the questions...

Good find. You are correct. Maybe Kenney will find a couple EFJohnsons under his Christmas tree or perhaps a signed copy of From Trash Can to Commander and an "All Dispatcher All the time" tote bag.

Carter is telling the truth about Graham, and he has the proof. This isn't about colors. I don't care if this man is purple or Graham is green. What Graham did is wrong, and he should be punished.

This is my response to an article in the Clarion Ledger written by Ruth Ingram.

David Hampton
Clarion Ledger

In response to the article by Ruth Ingram, she refers to Robert Graham as "an internationally known emergency communications trainer." This is once again a misrepresentation of the facts as Graham is so well known for." The facts are that he has worked for or spoken at conferences by 9-1-1 training companies internationally known. On his website, he claims customers as “his customers” but they were agencies NECI sent him to as a “NECI contract instructor” such as the FBI Academy, Waco, TX, and several others.

Graham is a fraud in every aspect. When he verbally represented himself as a police officer and commander over the 9-1-1 center and an internationally-known trainer, it was a moral fraud. When he taught courses at the Jackson Police Academy for a fee while drawing a salary from the City of Jackson, when violating copyright laws, when fabricating certificates making 9-1-1 agencies eligible for reimbursement from the state 9-1-1 board for paying him a fee was a criminal fraud for which I hope the district attorney will hold him accountable.

Since 2007, I have related these facts to the following Clarion Ledger reporters who all failed to report them since 2007: Leah Rupp, Chris Joyner, Grace Simmons-Fisher, Kathleen Baydala, and Molly Parker. None of them wrote a single word of my allegations even when provided with supporting documents. Why not?

You had a reporter at my press conference last Monday at Jackson City hall. He asked questions but nothing I said that day was printed. Why not?

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.
