Durr's victim from 2012 speaks out.

Give this lady a great deal of credit.  Jarvis Durr's victim in 2012 spoke to WLBT last night about the inability of the criminal justice system to protect society from thugs like him.  He is accused of armed robbery, forcible rape, and business burglary in that crime.  She didn't hide behind a screen or use any of the identity concealment tricks. She faced the cameras, gave her name, and said what she thought.

Shuler Smith is a complete failure.

It's not just that he's was out on bond that bothers me. It's that there's been no trial on Ms. Durr's case !

There is something broken in our legal system and despite what the Jackson bashers think, these continual delays in all court cases of all types is resulting in justice denied.

I personally think it's the legal profession. Judges give lawyers delays they do not deserve . They are not holding lawyers or the lawyer's client in contempt and making that contempt stick when they fail to produce discovery documents or follow court ordered payments.

The delays allow attorneys to bill more hours than the case warrants.

If our courts are that overburdened, then I want that fixed. Temporarily have judges appointed and venues found to hear cases until the case dockets are cleared and then figure out how many judges are needed to keep the system running. Require attorneys to take pro bono cases until this is many per firm based on the number of lawyers per firm.

But, this is ridiculous.

If the police can't get good evidence processed in a timely manner then we have to expand that system.

I want to know where the problems are and I want them fixed!

And, before you Jackson bashers weigh in, a divorce took 7 years in Madison so the husband could successfully " starve" his wife. She ended up living in her car. The marital home wasn't maintained and became worthless. He claimed bankruptcy but lived well and his business miraculously restarted when the divorce was final.

And, I am seeing judges allowing delays giving executors the opportunity to rob estates blind.

Attorneys are filing bogus motions and those motions are granted just to bill more hours and to try to drive up plantiff or defendants costs. They do this to either force a cheap settlement for their client or to hope the other side can no longer continue to pursue the case.

This isn't justice. This is corruption in Mississippi and it's time it stopped!

And the ever-stoic Howard. What's up with the terribly poor audio. They had mics and professionals in the room, no?

There is absolutely no reason that a person that is charged with a crime in 2012 is not tried within 3 years. He was out on bond and the DAs office just forgot about him. This is outrageous!

Amen to 6:47! Based on my personal observations, it is plain that a person must be wealthy and have a lot of time to obtain Justice in Civil Court. The excessive delays granted to parties in Criminal and Civil Court deny Justice. Attorneys clog the system with junk lawsuits and Judges do not do their jobs to separate the wheat from the chaff. Our system is broken, from the prosecution and defense all the way through the courts.

No need for more judges. County courts were created for the sole purpose of alleviating the dockets in circuit courts.

There is not a single Hinds County Circuit Court judge (your boy Weill included) who sends cases to be handled by either of the County Court Judges.

Robert Smith needs to be run out of town

Get prepared for more courtroom injustice exposing citizens to dangererous thugs . Hillary Clinton made a speech today whining about 1.5 million blacks are incarcerated, police brutality toward black men,black hopelessness, black proverty, black joblessness, ect, ect. She stated the rioting is the voice of the unheard. She like her husband Bill and Shuler Smith is really going for the black vote. If elected justice will be flushed down the toilet.

Get to know Stanley Alexander. He is the real deal. Simply get to know him.

Johnny Weir, didn't you get the memo that black criminals' victims are most often black and riots happen primarily in the black community?

8:27 am If we don't need more judges or courtrooms, the judicial system in MS has some explaining to do.

It shouldn't take 5 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees to prove your innocence in a civil case that should have been thrown out at the start. And it shouldn't take 5+ years to get a divorce without any maintenance being enforced or a divorce granted without the financial matters and custody settled.

Something is rotten in this State, not just in Jackson !

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. 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.
