Summers was arrested for drug dealing in 2013

The father of a young Jackson reality tv star killed at a gas station last week was arrested in June 2013 for drug dealing.  Hinds County deputies arrested Christal "Chris" Summers for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm and also for being a felon in possession of a concealed weapon.    WAPT reported on January 15:

The father of a young reality TV star was shot to death Thursday outside a Jackson gas station.
Christal Summers, 34, was shot several times just before 4:30 a.m. at Laxmi on Terry Road at Evergreen Road, police said.

Police said an argument led to the shooting....

Summers is the father of Crystiana Summers, who is a member of the cast of the hit dance show, "Bring It," 16 WAPT News has confirmed.

No arrests have been made in the case. Rest of article and video.
Sources who have seen store security video told JJ that an argument between Summers and his alleged killer ensued at the gas pumps. Both men allegedly went to their vehicles.  Mr. Summers then allegedly retrieved a handgun from his car and walked towards the other vehicle.  Sources emphasize that he was walking to the other vehicle with a gun in his hand. 

Kingfish note: Sounds like someone might have a case of self-defense.

I just looked it up, and Dynasty (a nighttime soap opera) first aired in January of 1981. Apparently, the brand-new show so impressed the Summers family, they named their brand-new child after the lovely Crystal Carrington.

I don't know where they got that spelling, and I don't know if they thought Crystal Carrington was a man, or if they were confused as to the gender of their child. But this is a heart-warming and inspiring story, anyway. Aaron Spelling would be so proud.

Maybe they thought that "Christal" is a boy name, while "Crystal" is a girl name? It's a pretty name, nonetheless.

And speaking of pretty... I just LOVE those artfully-arched eyebrows. They really finish off the face, and help pull off "That Sea Bass Look".

Then again, the delicate neck tattoo, and the little 'top knot' haircut say "Cockatoo". However, the neck tat suggests Christal may have HAD a Cockatoo - or more - while "up on charges" in the Big House, and maybe had had enough of them, and thought the tat would ward them off.

The great thing about a name that can "Go both ways" is that you don't have to change it, should your new buddies in prison decide you should be wearing a dress.

He gave clothes to the needy and fed the homeless.

He aspired to go back to school.

He was a gifted athlete when he was in school.

He loved his keeds and his mama and was just out getting gas at 4:30am like anybody else.

He dint do nuffins.

Where the hell does that mugshot come from? First, there's no mention of race. Has it become too politically incorrect to note that or are we just assuming that all criminals are of a certain race until proven otherwise now?

Second, what are these "tags"?
"Tatted Up"?

Is this the categorizing method the HCSD is using these days? Who the hell is running things down there?

12:34 I think they were aiming for that champagne that was all the rage with rappers a long time ago but got the spelling wrong.

Sounds like a couple of perceived crimes there.

I noticed that Christie here lives (make that lived) over by the zoo. Remember when sane voices were suggesting that the zoo be moved to the golf course at LeFleur's Bluff because it was losing money and was in one of the least safe areas of the city? Remember how Ladd immediately called such suggestions racist, then sponsored a fundraiser for the zoo at Highland Village rather than the zoo itself? She implored her reader to "take a leisurely evening stroll at the zoo".

I wonder how many evening strolls she has taken at the zoo. Or if she casually wandered down Houston Street, past Mr. Model Citizen's domicile.

Probably not, but not because of the perception of crime! She was just too busy in lily-white (with a few token Negroes) Fondren to get over there for her leisurely stroll, but she'll get there soon, I'm sure.

Rumor has it that Chris was moving 2-3 kilos of cocaine per week. Rumor also has it that earlier in the evening, he was at Black Diamond strip club off of McDowell, likely flashing a bunch of cash. And, rumor has it that the shooter may have also been at Black Diamond and may have broken into the deceased's car. Again, just some of the things being said on the street.

Does anyone know the legality of moving other people's trash cans without their permission? Seems like something that should be against the law.

Who is Ladd?

The author of this article writes more about his past offenses than his death. It's like the author is implying to their readers not to feel anything regarding this family's lost because he committed a crime in his past, which is the same as saying he deserved to die. Same on this publication for even releasing such a cognitively disassociated article.

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.
