Summers was a twice-convicted drug dealer with another conviction on deck.

Much noise has been made in various forms of  local commentary about  the lack of outrage about the death  of Chris Summers. He was killed  on January 15 at 4:30 AM at the Laxmi Convenience Store on Terry Road.  Police do not have any suspects.  Mr. Summers was the father of a "young reality tv star" on ABC.  However, the media has not reported what Mr. Summers really was: a drug dealer.  Hinds County court records show that Christtal Summers was convicted twice of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. He was indicted 2013 for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute while in possession of a firearm as well.


A Hinds County grand jury indicted Summers for selling cocaine on May 22, 1999.  He was convicted on March 18, 2002 and sentenced to two years in jail at MDOC but the sentence was suspended. The court imposed probation on the defendant for three years.  However, Summers was arrested in 2003 for possession of crack cocaine and the state moved to revoke his probation and send him to jail (read p.27).  He also failed to submit to a drug test and report to his probation officer as well.  Circuit Judge Bobby Delaughter revoked his sentence in 2004.



A Hinds County grand jury indicted him again in 2004 for the possession of cocaine.  The case was repeatedly continued until 2006.  He was convicted on August 18, 2006 and sentenced to four years in prison. Judge Breland Hilburn suspended two years of the prison sentence and also fined Summers $1,000. 

However, Summers just could not stay out of trouble.  He was arrested in June 2013 for the possession of cocaine with intent to distribute while possessing a firearm. A Hinds County grand jury indicted him in November 2013.  The case was set for trial in May 2014 but the case was continued.  A new trial had not been scheduled when Summers died.  Earlier post on Summers' death and arrest.

Law enforcement sources informed JJ that Summers argued with the driver of another car at the convenience store on January 15. They said video from the store security cameras show he went to his car, retrieved a gun, and then walked towards the other car with the gun in his hand. The driver of the other car allegedly shot him as he approached.


Kingfish note: There is no two ways about it.  Summers was a drug dealer.

It's good the taxpayers were saved the expense of another trial and imprisonment, and a law-abiding citizen will be safer walking the streets.

The JFP is in backtracking mode over their accusation of racism with the Belhaven murder.

Would appear they have lost their way with their narrative, because you know, the murder of a drug dealer is equivalent to an innocent woman killed taking out the trash.

Not quite the same as an older woman trying to help out by bringing in an empty garbage can. I thought Brad Franklin's op-ed piece was a cheap race card shot. Maybe you could reprint it here and see what others think. I think Brad should focus on why Antreal Jones' mother thinks it's ok to rob people, as long as you don't shoot them. God help us.

This is the same guy the Jackson Free Press Crowd was whining about, correct? Must be tough losing your dealer.

Backtracking? Where?

Your nuts 1:03 if you think the JFP is "in backtracking mode". They've not done one iota of reportage on Summers' background and Knave's 'newsroom leader' tripe is just more of the same shit Donner's been crapping (and carping about) for over a decade. Ladd's posting tens of thousands of words on Facebook and NextDoor in order to shove her narrative down the throats of others in Jackson is only part of her control freak mental disorder.

Wow big surprise, the JFP is infuriatingly sanctimonious as it is irrelevant.

I think these comments should be repeated in the JP article. But Lodd is such a leftist twit that she probably wouldn't approve the comments.

Yet they think of themselves as a bastion for real journalism.

What else is new?

Brad Franklin? Don't you mean Kamikaze? Because nothing says dope and def and fresh like a grown man who demands he be called by his teenage rapper name.

What amazes me is how many people here are quoting the JFP. I never read that fish wrap gazette, because all it is is Donna Ladd bragging about how she's not a racist and all the other white people in the area are, especially those in Madison and Rankin.

Who Who said...

Is Brad Franklin Commie-Cozzie?

She is not controlling the narrative. She is messing up her typical narrative. While not expressly backtracking, she is doubling down on the drug dealer vs. honest citizen comparison.

"Find our voice, identify a holistic approach and we can soar". I like it.

Kingfish said...

He was not a drug dealer?

How do you explain the convictions and the indictment? Probation was revoked once as well.


No one said he was selling drugs when he was killed. No one.


Convictions are straight dropped above from the courthouse.

Oh, and my traffic is so high, I don't need to engage in cheap stunts or theatrics to boost it. Its already there.

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.
