Wow, I feel so much safer knowing they got such a big fish. I brought more weed than this with me on spring break.

Nice $2 bill by the way.

@7:18pm... While you may be a reasonable pot head; do you find it necessary to carry an AK-47 and a couple of handguns while you smoke up? Don't think this guy was headed to the Panic show?

No doubt you are a big person with an opinion we should all value highly.

He needs all the good press he can get. It's over for the Lewis administration.

What are "Xanax Bars"? A diet supplement? Post-workout snack?

I'm pretty sure Xanax only comes in pills.

If you carried over half a pound of weed with you on spring break are you still sitting at that blinking caution light?

Off to 'college' for this fine young Cochran supporter. I'm sure he'll learn plenty of useful knowledge and skills to use once he's out in a few years.

Not needing the paltry $15 I'm sure that Jeffery Phillips smoked a blunt and then voted for Thad for free.

That's not an assault rifle. Show me where the select fire switch is on it.

Ain't prohibition grand?

So, no gun charges? At all? Really?

What would the gun charges be if he was not using the gun to aid and abet criminal activity? If you get pulled over for a DUI and have a gun in the car there is not gun charge. If you rob a bank and leave a gun in the car there is no gun charge. Owning a gun is not a crime unless you are a felon. The mere possession of a firearm while being in possession of an illegal substance does not make the firearm involvement criminal.

Mississippi Code § 41-29-147

The use of a gun in the commission of any drug crime or possession of a gun at the time of arrest for a drug crime doubles both the maximum allowable period of incarceration and the maximum fine for any given offense.

Has anyone noticed that the AK-47 is a short-barreled rifle? Highly illegal in and of itself.

Anonymous said...

That AK is a pistol and is completely legal. It doesn't have a stock and instead has an "arm brace" that helps stabilize the gun when fired one handed.

Does Mississippi Code § 41-29-147 apply to possession charges?

The AK is a pistol.

And it is neither illegal nor highly illegal whether it's a pistol or short barreled rifle.

I am very sure that you are wrong. Look it up.

Good work HCSO!

You gotta feel sorry for folks like 7:24 and 8:17 that have to try so hard attempting to come up with a Cochran comment on any post thrown up on JJ. What in the world could possess you to come from so far out in left field with comments like these?

@5:26

The term "Cochran Supporter" is interchangeable with black democrat thug (the people that got Cochran elected). Personally, I think it has a nice ring to it.

So, 2:46, if a story appears about white Mississippian getting thrown out of the library for not bring able to read, should we assume that he voted for McDaniel? Or at least attended the two klan rallies where McDaniel was a special guest and speaker. Get over it you lost and yes black people CAN vote for either party if they do choose.

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.

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.
