Update on West Point hate crime

West Point beating victim Ralph Weems is still in a coma but has made some progress.  Mr. Weems is off the ventilator and is no longer receiving sedation medications.  He has opened his eyes a few times but is not responsive.  The limbs have moved a few times but it is not known if the actions are voluntary or involuntary.  Doctors induced a coma after emergency brain surgery to assist in his recovery.  A GofundMe account has been established to help pay Mr. Weems' medical bills.   The Associated Press reported:

Bond is set at $250,000 for a second man booked with aggravated assault in an incident hospitalizing a 32-year-old man, West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley said.

Marquavious McMillian, 20, of Aberdeen, was arrested and charged Thursday, two days after the same charge was brought against Courtez McMillian, 22, of Okolona, in the beating of Ralph Weems IV in the parking lot of a restaurant....Rest of article.

F'ing animals supported by my tax dollars. If I'm going to be paying for them, I'd much rather be paying for them to live in a state-run cage. Thankfully, I suspect I'll get my wish with these two. Hopefully there will be about 18 more arrests and the entire violent mob will receive appropriate justice.

who goes to waffle or huddle house at 2, its alluded that the guy was drunk or maybe incited the riot, and your tax dollars? how do you know their work history just because they are black they are supported by an anonymous loser that has control issues? lets do what they said about Ferguson and let the justice system work, ha!, with all that being said its not justified for the guys to jump him and they are saying it was 6 people not 20 you guys kill me, cry me a river! for your ancestors to the monsters they were some of you are such weak individuals.

KF - has this been established as a hate crime yet? The title implies it has, but I haven't seen where they charged the perps with a hate crime. I agree it "sounds" like a hate crime, but until the investigation is complete, I can't say one way or another. Will definitely be thinking of the weems family and hoping Ralph makes a full recovery.

@11:29 am - What do you mean "you guys"?

Certainly willing to wait for the system to work. Hope the victim recovers but brain surgery is rarely a great milestone in recovery. @11.29, why shouldn't anyone go to these places at 2:00 AM. Maybe they worked late; maybe they drive a truck or an ambulance; maybe they were drinking and got hungary. Are you blaming the victim for not being barricaded at home 'cause he's white? And I have yet to understand what ancestors have to do with it. 1/2 of my family's ancestors were not even in this country. If you are black, you may have decended from free blacks in Mobile, or maybe your ancestors were the ones who sold fellow Africans into slavery. Maybe you are the decendant of a grandmother being raped by a Yankee soldier. Who knows? God made me and God made you. Why carry hate in your heart because of your ancestors. If we are Godfearing we will wind up in the same place so we need to learn to get along now.

Where did you read he was drunk? The stepfather said they were working and had just finished unloading a u-haul and were looking for something to eat.

Read the grammatical ignorance in 11:29 and say no more. He is a foo.....

@1129 i can tell younwith an absalute fact that ralph was not drunk and would not incite a riot. Ralph is my brother in law and have known him for well over ten years. And have not once heard him say a racist remark ever. If you feel like it ill will be glad to meat with you and we can vigorusly discus the situation.

This whole attack is the officers fault. They ran the white boys out instead of the trouble makers. When weems was hit, he never saw the assailants coming. If he wouldn't have been blindsided this could be a whole different matter. The police officers made weems (where he could at least see the individuals wanting to kill him) leave the Waffle House 'for his own safety.' Yet the cops did absolutely nothing to calm the situation that was present in the Waffle House before he walked in. It seems if the cops are going to make a white man leave a establishment where whites aren't welcome, and say it's for his own safety, then the officer should be required to be sure the unruly mob that was causing a safety concern to begin with doesn't just leave as soon as the cops do and go try to kill him.


If it weren't for the police, weems likely would have eaten himself some pecan waffles and gone about his way. But what else do you expect with a racist police department.

Orangejello and Lemonjello are gonna be charged with hates crimes, and if they aren't, white folks should take it to the street in the black community and riot. The black community needs a goddamn piece of their own bullshit medicine over this one.

If the DOJ doesn't make this a hate crime then we need to take up arms and riot.

Ralph's uncle is a judge up there. There will be lawsuits for everybody.

2:37 and 2:38 are exactly right. Reverse the races and Al, Jesse and every news outlet in America would in West Point screaming Hate Crime, HATE CRIME. This makes me want to vomit.

Nice to see like minded people. At some point, something has to be done. It's just a matter of who will be the first to stand up?

Dude proof read what you wrote. Are you serious? Where did you learn how to spell. Toothless University.

I like your idea but do we have to burn our own cars, destroy and loot our own businesses? It's been so damned long since we had a decent white riot ( Boston Tea Party?) I forget the protocol.

PANTS UP---DON'T LOOT!

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.

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.
