Judge denies Mayfield petition.

‎Madison County Justice Court Judge McKinley denied Robin Mayfield's petition at a probable cause hearing against three Madison police officers.   He said the statute cited by Mrs. Mayfield, 97-17-93, did not give the court the power to issue citations. Mrs. Mayfield's lawyer and brother, John Reeves, did not appear in the courtroom. More to follow.

Here we go, let the tea party vs establishment comments begin. The odds are low that anything new will be said, but a lot will be said.

It appears that Mrs. Mayfield was represented in court by counsel that is more competent than John Reeves. #ProSe

Her revenge plot against the Officers is biting her in the ass. I hate her husband killed himself but she just needs to quit. She is going to open a huge can of worms that can't be closed.

Is her attorney using this woman? Does she realize this?

"It appears that Mrs. Mayfield was represented in court by counsel that is more competent than John Reeves."

It doesn't say that any attorney was present in court. Very odd.

This is the code referenced

The County Prosecutor Allen Phillips represented the State Of Mississippi and John T Kitchens represented the Police officers

Mrs. Mayfield should grow some balls. For a minimal fee you can employ some gentlemen from west Jackson that will get the point across much more thoroughly than the monkey courts in our state.

I find it interesting that the only media outlet reporting this is Kingfish. I guess the other media interests in the metro area don't want to bother with a story that vindicates police officers. It really shows their true motives.

Truth be told, I've got six pages of notes from the hearing yesterday. I probably should write up the rest of the story but after what I saw yesterday, I question whether I should do it or not. The basic information is posted.

FYI for those commenting about attorneys - in any criminal action it is the state prosecuting the action against the defendants. Therefore it would be a city attorney, county prosecutor, district attorney or assistant district attorney or attorney general. Unless appointed, a private attorney doesn't represent the state.

KF: if you saw something interesting, do tell.

I guess we need to be prepared for more fliers put out about how the mayor of Madison had something to do with all this.

9:07 So, if a cop hears screaming and gunshots from behind a closed door this legislation does not allow for him to enter the "lands" without being accompanied or invited by the owner? No exceptions for that?

I believe that in order to be successfully prosecuted for trespass, the accused must first have entered onto land or premises clearly posted by visible sign or appropriate notice seen by a reasonable person from a distance of forty feet. You have GOT to be warned. Mere existence of a piece of land that you don't own is not sufficient to have you prosecuted should you enter upon it.

If you walk onto somebody's front yard not knowing the intent of the owner to have it posted, you will NOT be found guildy of a misdemeanor.

That's why I have posted signs on trees on my property. And so should you.

@3:41-That would be an example of exigent circumstances where a warrant or consent is not needed by police to enter. Actually police would have a duty to enter in that circumstance.

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.

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.
