Was "baby" killed in a "high speed chase"?

Keisha Redmond accused JPD of killing her 15-year old daughter Keonna in a "high speed chase".  Keonna died in a stolen car that crashed into a tree after police stopped the car.  JPD states the driver drove off in the car after the police officer got out of the car and that there was no chase.  However, JJ obtained a picture of the deceased that casts "baby" in a different light.

Ms. Redmond screamed at the vigil "they killed my baby" and said the police should not have chased anyone over a "joyride".  JPD arrested the fourteen-year-old driver.   Here is the picture of the deceased that appeared on WLBT's website:

Lovely young lady.  Nice, sweet, sociable, a tragedy she died so young. Now here is the picture of Ms. Redmond's "baby" that didn't appear in the media:

Kingfish commentary: "My Baby"  brandishes guns, runs with the wrong crowd, rides around in stolen cars, and is out after midnight.  She is all of 15 years old.  However, mommy blames JPD.  It's all the fault of police.  

One final question: Did Ms. Redmond ever say anything about the driver of the stolen car, you know, the guy who actually killed her daughter?

She's wearing the same clothes in both photos. Did you ask WLBT if they had access to that second photo as well, and, if so, why didn't they show that?

Anonymous said...

Has she done anything that warrants her being killed in a high speed chase, if indeed that happened?

So KF, are you saying that some pics on a social media site in some way justify her death?

Kingfish said...

you are assuming there was a high speed chase.

Earth to 9:46 AM. There was no high speed chase.

Hope that the mourners in the WLBT video can overcome their grief just long enough tomorrow to get out and vote for Thad Cochran.

There was no high-speed chase. The police stopped the car for speeding and after the officer approached the car sped off and then crashed without pursuit.

Grieving parents often say really stupid things. It is supposed to be the duty of the news media to filter out things like this. Every ridiculous and outrageous claim need not be reported.

Police make mistakes, but in this case no mistake was made. Yet many people will think there was, and at some point a Ferguson-type event becomes more likely. A hundred darts for WLBT!

Keona oughta' not be ridin' in a $12'000. stolen ca'. Will there be an autopsy, that may reveal drugs or alcohol?

Anonymous said...

No , I'm not assuming a high speed chase happened, I am asking why the photos off of a social media site have any bearing of this case?

Do the photos show her stealing a car? Speeding down the street? the wreckage? no. They show here in various poses posted to a social media site. What does that have to do with the case?

Photos on social media sites contain many messages. Ask your HR Director.

My sympathy goes to the family. The root of the problem is teens feel they are invincible. Like it or not parents need to know where and what their kids are doing 24/7. This wasn't done! Her parent can't deny there was a lack of supervision!

Kingfish said...

Various fucking poses?

A 15 year old girl is POSING with guns, notice the finger on the trigger, probably flashing gang symbols. Nothing wrong with that, Just a pose. Damn, do you actually see the problem with these "poses" or do you excuse everything??

i would think the mother will find a lawyer and try to get the city to settle out of court for a payday.

At the end of the day there was a 15 year old young lady who was out at a time of night that was inappropriate, with friends that were inappropriate, and obviously suffered the consequences of her choices and her mother's lack of supervision. What role JPD may or may not have played did not put her in a stolen car with a 14 year old driver. The outcome is unfortunate but the reponsibiltiy is with her and her mother.

I hope the mother finds a lawyer and sues the driver of the stolen car.

So the Mom has a 15 year old out very late at night, with other underage thugs out late at night, riding in a stolen car that gets stopped by JPD. Said thug driver then speeds off to get away from the police and crashes, and it's the fault of the police department?

She needs to get a grip and place the blame where it belongs. The blame falls on the face in her mirror. As said as it is to lose a child, you can't be blaming the police when your kids is out joyriding in a stolen car.

Anonymous said...

While she no doubt loved her daughter, she displayed less than minimal intellect in front of the cameras that night.

Unfortunately, that was surely the root cause of that poor young lady's upbringing.

Anonymous said...

If she were a white male posing with a shotgun or hunting rifle, and she were wearing camouflage, would you still make this post?

Because you admit that she was "probably" flashing gang signs, which obviously shows that you do not know.

Nothing excuses her actions. But nothing excuses yours on this website, either.

at least she'll never have the chance to shoot that gun at innocent bystanders...

@12:23 If a white male were posing with a handgun while sitting on the couch throwing up signs...I would think he was in the wrong crowd as well and up to no good. Please don't compare hunting animals to sitting on a couch playing with handguns and stealing cars at age 15. That is the most laughable comparison I have heard in a while.

Anonymous said...

@12:23, if grandma had balls, she'd be grandpa. You do recognize the difference between a handgun and a long gun, right?

If she was posing with a shotgun or hunting rifle and wearing camo, it would be very different. First of all, it would be legal for her to possess firearms of those types.

And if an underaged white male was posing with a handgun, that would still be illegal, just as it was for the choirgirl in that photograph.

It'd be so much easier if this could be a racial thing instead of a cultural thing, wouldn't it?

@ 12:23,
This "white male" you write of, is he going to be hunting ducks, quail, deer, geese, or pheasant with said firearm?
What is the female in the above photo hunting with that semi-auto pistol?

Anonymous said...

Momma was sure quick with the Kelley Blue Book to value the car. Guess a chase would have been ok with a $90k Mercedes...

Anonymous said...


Most white males wearing camo with a shotgun or hunting rifle would not be doing so in a stolen vehicle... after midnight... with a 14 yr old driver... evading police.

Kingfish said...

12:23: I'm not apologizing for anything. Period. The only reason I'm posting this is because mommy went out accusing the poh-lice of killing her "baby". Funny, I showed that pic to several black people this weekend, asked them what they thought. They all shook their heads and were disgusted by it. Even said so.

Last time I checked, I haven't seen white kids posing with handguns that are not used for hunting either.

Anonymous said...

What language is that lady speaking? Where is the dad? I'm sure he wants to know who is 15yo daughter was with that night and why no supervision. I'm sure this kid has an involved father who... Oh nevermind

Anonymous said...

Sheeeeet people be slow to know what up.

If you are 15 years old you can be using that gun to be hunting stolen cars and people looking to loose their money and phones. Also works good if you want to hunt some convenience stores.

If the wrong set be up in your face then you can be standing your ground or driving by them to show them what up. Whichever you and your crew decides.

But any fool know she don't have much experience shooting that- best be turning that thing sideways to get a good spray pattern.

Ignore all this if she and her friends got proper NRA training to conceal carry and uphold their second amendment.

12:23 That is definitely a gang sign.

White kids don't need guns; just a big truck, alcohol, molly and gas to travel from Rankin county to target African Americans in Jackson!

Perhaps the deceased needed that gun for protection from all the lighter complexion registered sex offenders or for the male driver from the Catholic priest of lighter complexion?

@ 6:13

Wrong how, which regard?

If I am not mistaken, was it not late at night that James Anderson was killed with no gun by lightly pigmented teenagers from Rankin county?

Wonder what gang Dedmond was signing for enroute to Jackson- Aryan, KKK, or Posse Comitatus?

But in defense of Dedmond, kids do stupid things like commit hate based murder; but NEVER EVER do they post pictures of dumb stuff on Facebook?

Food for thought! 😱

Kingfish said...

The parents of Dedmond didn't run around blaming JPD or the FBI. In fact, while Dedmond looked pretty defiant in court, the parents seemed pretty upset and remorseful for what their kid did.

Anonymous said...

Does JPD have dashcams? If so, should be pretty easy to confirm if there was a chase.

Anonymous said...

@KF 7:55

Difficult to misplace blame when it's on camera for all to see!

Wonder if any or all of the passengers riding with Dedmond knew his intentions to kill that night?

Equally so,one has to wonder if "baby" knew the car she was riding in was stolen or that someone would die that night?

My comments to your post are about a blogger's reckless abandon in trolling social media to disparage a deceased 15 YEAR OLD GIRL'S LIFE by re-posting a picture with nefarious commentary.

A mother's image of their child is never an accurate representation, sure yours could attest as much!😱

Food for thought!

She kept saying that the police chased these "children" because of one stollen car. How in the world could the officer know the age of the occupants of the vehicle? The driver sped off before he could get up to the window. The officer likely didn't even know how many people were in the car, much less their age. So I guess the police shouldn't ever pull over a speeding vehicle -stollen or otherwise - because the driver may be a teenager that will panic and speed off and hit a tree. Wtf?

Kingfish said...

I trolled social media? Did it ever occur to you that someone sent this to me and I verified it?

Here is her facebook profile:

WLBT actually had to go into her photos to find the one they used. The pic with the gun is her profile picture (smh).

If she is lucky enough to find a lawyer willing to take the case, it will be a bench trial and will probably be dismissed shortly after its filed.

Anonymous said...

Momma's gonna find a lawyer and sue the owner of the car for being so stupid as to allow the car to be stolen.

Anonymous said...

Her Facebook page, though from 2013 shows a wild, out of control teen. One response appears to be from a male that could be arrested for statutory rape. Mama spent too much time chillen after work. Mama says she's 15. Well mama you be bigger than her, you could've contoured her.

Anonymous said...

the mom will find a lawyer to sue the MANUFACTURER of the car for something stupid like faulty brakes, recall that wasn't serviced, etc. Rest Assured, the "parent" will get a pay out of some sort. In addition to the pay outs she most likely already receives from the gubment.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.

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.
