Animals hurt the animals

Looks like some Stokes voters decided to steal the AC unit from the Animal Rescue Fund. The ARF posted on its Facebook page:

Good Morning Friends of ARF. There are so many wonderful things going on at the Miriam Wilson Weems Kennel these day. Unfortunately, there are also some really sorry things. Last night our air conditioner was stolen. Right off the side of the building. Ripped right off and hauled away. Along with the jeep windows being smashed and the radio stolen. Security cameras are being checked as these scummy people did do a little moving around in the parking lot.

This will not prevent ARF from doing what they do. We will continue to strive to meet our goals. Our adoption numbers are up, our shelter dog numbers are decreasing. We see the positive effect we are having and we thank our supporters and adopters and volunteers.

WAPT has more coverage.

Reckon Stokes will mount an effort to raise funds and replace the unit? Maybe he'll mount a podium at Freedom Corner to condemn the act. Chances?

Do you have an address for readers to make contributions? Those animals can die in this heat very quickly. Thanks.

The mention of donations was only for the air conditioner. Not for an appeal for blanket, generic donations. If I want to contribute to an A/C purchase, I don't want it going to whatever Elizabeth thinks it ought to go to.

@7:46 - If you were serious about wanting the help the animals, you would allow the people who have given their blood, sweat and tears for them to determine what they need the most. Might be an air conditioner, might not. How helpful will an air conditioner be if the animals can't be fed??

I have had four Air Conditioners and three iron security doors stolen off of houses THIS year. Oh, and the plumbing from under another and the wires from under another. I sho du luv me some thieves. Thousands of Air conditioners stolen and how many arrest from JPD?????? NONE???

10:24 - Gee, it must be you. According to dozens of posts on the "Living Downtown" thread there are rainbow-colored unicorns crapping gold coins all over the rest of Jackson.

Seriously, I am stunned - I thought iron security doors were supposed to keep scum from stealing everything else.

Unfortunately, another air conditioner will only be another target to steal. The location of ARF is so unsafe, and I hate they had to move to such an area.

An iron cage bolted to the ground will need to be put over the next unit. I guess an electric fence around the entire compound wouldn't help?

"Animal shelter will remove to I-55 and Meadowbrook" New state-of-the-art facility in talks with Fondren Renaissance Foundation to move the cats to the property next to the Barrington and St. Andrews lower school and the dogs to their own property that formerly housed the Precinct Four Police station on N. State Street.

Yet another Madison county resident coming into Jackson to steal. JPD, go search the McMansions in Madison and you'll certainly find it.

Living in Jackson is so AWESOME!

11:20 pm Please do not venture far out of your yard and never visit another city.

Just a few blocks in any city can be the difference in being in a safe area or being at risk. Indeed, simply crossing a major street can make a difference.

There can be visual aids in making your assessments. You do recognize the difference between Eastover and a trailer park, right? Then, try really, really hard to see the difference between , oh, a new federal building and a warehouse. Start big and maybe, with practice, you can catch more subtle differences!

If they come to steal copper, send them back with lead.

Isn't this the location that Stokes and many other people rallied against ARF moving into? Hate to say "I told you so," but...

The bold new city in as bad or even worse that a third world county...lawlessness, rampant welfare, crime, disrespect... but not to worry, plenty of bling and bad behavior to go around!(and big shiny new cars to boot!!)

I said Stokes voters for a reason.

Spay and Neuter said...

8:34....I'm 7:46. Save your sanctimonious lecture. I volunteer at several shelters and donate constantly. My point was if someone responded to an article about a stolen A/C unit by wanting to donate to its replacement, we don't need Elizabeth chiming in to plug for blanket donations. She should have accommodated the poster's request.

Right or wrong, and to your liking or not, there are many people who want to target or pinpoint a donation when they make it to any charity or organization.

"I said Stokes voters for a reason."

Right. You wanted to imply they were black. Hence, animals.

Kingfish said...

Wrong. Dead wrong. It was Larita Stokes who led an idiotic protest against them. It was Larita Stokes who created a climate of fear and hatred against the ARF in her community. It is Larita Stokes who has not spoken out against the vandalism and other criminal acts inflicted upon the ARF. So yes, I will call them Stokes voters.

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.
