Another escape

Another inmate escaped from the Hinds County jail this morning. Sheriff Tyrone Lewis told JJ the inmate busted open a "grate" in the wall and was able to break a lock in the mechanical area to escape the facility. He was captured shortly after the escape and is back in custody. The Sheriff said he is going to call the media later today and have them come to the jail for a press conference. He said he will provide a media tour of the jail after the press conference. Sheriff Lewis said repairs are being made "piecemeal" and the supervisors need to fund a complete repair of the jail.

The story I read on WAPT said the mechanical room was not locked. You can fix all the broken locks you want to, but if something is not locked, they're going to find it.

Tyrone Lewis is starting to look like Barney Fife.

The jail has been a mess since it opened. I don't know how anyone can blame Tyrone Lewis for it.

6:47. That is because the IDIOT supervisors were more interested in black contractors getting "gimme" contracts than quality. WE ARE CURSED WITH BLACK RACIST IDIOTS.

Before you AA trolls even start, check the record.

GIFTS FOR FOOLS. God bless Joe Lauderdale. He tried.

Yes you can blame lewis because the jail, although was not in the best of shape, was not in the condition that it is in at this point. It is mainly due to the lack of knowledge by " Yo sheriff" and all those jpd and rankin county individuals that are now in place. None of them have or even had any idea of what it took to run a sheriff's office let alone a jail. Oh yes, you can most definitely blame tyrone and his traveling band of idiots for the conditions of the jail, the escapes and everything else in general. I would say that they are a joke, but at least a joke is funny. They, on the other hand, are PATHETIC.

10:37, you have an axe to grind with Sheriff Lewis and don't know a damn thing about the history of the jail. Do some research and you will see where Sheriff McMillin raised hell with the board of supervisors repeatedly to fix the myriad of problems at Raymond. Despite Sheriff McMillin's efforts, the Board of Idiots sat on their asses and let the problems get worse.

This isn't Sheriff Lewis fault, and it isn't Sheriff McMillin's fault either. The blame lies squarely at the feet of the Airwave 5.

The blame for the whole jail problem can be laid at the feet of then Supe, now congressman Bennie Thompson. He was the one that pushed to have it built in Raymond, instead of Jackson where all the crooks are. Stupid! He also pushed for the minority engineers out of Chicago who produced drawings that we're seriously flawed and set specs for things like the locks on cell doors that weren't workable. They then vanished before the project was completed and problems worked out. Stupid! Another crooked Bennie deal.

When the jail was first in the planning stages, I worked for an individual who was on the committee. That facility was a mess the first day it ever opened and has been ever since because of shoddy work by a company who subsequently went out of business and filed bankruptcy. It certainly isn't the fault of either "sheriff" individually; however, if you do research, there was a heck of a lot more experience in McMillin's administration than there is in the current administration. The "warden" can't even go into a pod without carrying a stick with a leather strap on the end!

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.
