What does, "in the company of" mean?

Was the Victim hanging out with these wayward Scotsmen,or did they approach him, asking for money, then abduct him?

And was the Victim also Scottish?

Madison is so dangerous! This is why my family and I would NEVER live there.

Quick, retreat to the safety of the Gluckstadt hills!

Gosh, I am so glad I don't live in Madison. What a dangerous place! It's time to get out all you Queen Mary lovers....the end is near! There's no hope for's a lost cause. Must be why the Queen is running for another office....her reason to get out before the fall of utopia.

Karma, all you Jackson haters.

The perps were from Yazoo.

In other words, Madison is surrounded and the circle is shrinking. The more Walmarts and Sams they build, the more potential victims. Maybe its not the mecca they thought.

Crime in the burbs? Yep. Here's the important take a way. Crime on Friday, investigation on Saturday, asses in jail on Sunday. And you can rest assured there will be no small bond or the perps not going on trial and to the pen in short order.

Criminals come to our fair city to prey upon our affluent residents, but they're quickly shown why Madison is such a great place to live. Eat your hearts out, everywhere else!

Ahh "but they go caught!!!" the tried and true party line from the Madison crowd any time there is a crime in their fair city. Unfortunately Jackson, Canton, Flora, Yazoo, etc. all have an ample supply of criminals. You can catch and retain all you want, but the jails will fill up before the criminals stop coming.

Catching the criminals is just treating the symptom, not the problem. If you want to treat the problem, work to make Jackson better.

"If you want to treat the problem, work to make Jackson better."

This problem is much, much larger than Jackson. The elephant in the room associated with all of these criminals is consistent across the country, or the world, really.

Pretty brazen. That Regions Bank is at the busiest intersection in Madison.

1:13,No way possible to make Jackson better. Too far gone.

These gentlemen should have mastered Armed Robbery 101, which teaches "Thou shalt target a person with money, never tag a person with few means." Just because they were in Madison doesn't mean Mo Money.

"He was in the company of two individuals earlier in the evening when one pulled a gun"....

That doesn't sound suspicious does it?

It was not great police work that caught these guys. The victim knew the guys and gave their names. Let's be for real, either those are his friends or his normal drug dealers. Where there are people, there will be crime. And Danks can set whatever unconstitutional amount of bond he wants, the case will eventually get to a real judge where their civil rights will be protected. Everybody knows that bond is not to keep you in jail; it's only to make sure a defendant show up for his court date.

Drug deal gone bad and victim was chauffeured around to get mo money. It was 11:30 at night, not during working hours.

This goofball mayor, surrounded by her contingent of yapping, subservient, junior-league alderpersons huddle at night in dark rooms with snifters of cheap brandy - concocting stupid new rules like no parking on the grass in your back yard and all paint visible to the public being earthtone or pastel.

While they're prohibiting apartments and peacocks and drafting ordinances that require you to lower your garage door, they continue to recruit more retail venues that attract thugs from a seven county area. The projected tax money will pay for two more black cruisers.

There are sixty banks on corners in Madison, The City. Madison is a destination venue for shoppers and thiefs with handicapped placards dangling from there rear view mirrors. It's not enough to have two Sams locations within fifteen miles of Madison, The City. We need our own in order to attract oil-burners from fifty miles away.

The Police Chief has put up with this shat for 25 years and can't wait to retire. The Mayor's alderpersons serve as her personal lieutenant lackies. She barks orders and they step and fetchit.

Meanwhile, Greek columns continue to show up, robberies increase and there's a county landfill within the city limits on Rice Road. The mayor is running for statewide office and the entire city is locking itself down against encroachment from all points on the compass.

What exactly does Madison do to recruit the stellar rookies on the police force that make $24,000 per year?

I'm reading this thread from the OPPOSITE CORNER OF THE CONTINENT. You people are delusional (or just hopelessly limited in the conceptual boundaries of your 'worlds'), if you think that people would be staying in Jackson, if they were not moving to Madison and Brandon. Madison offers an ALTERNATIVE TO LEAVING MISSISSIPPI. We opted to leave Mississippi. Lots of people do, and it's because Jackson has become an irredeemably sucky place.

If it were not for Madison and Brandon, offering people viable in-state options for having halfway-decent lives, Jackson's decline would be MORE dramatic than it is. Madison and Brandon are SLOWING the Brain Drain from the area, because they're nice places to live. The people who merely moved across county lines are still contributing to the Jackson Metro Economy. They are making jobs for Jacksonians. They are paying taxes which help Jackson. Families like mine, who left the Metro, and the state, and the SOUTH, do not add to the local economy. All WE do is collect rents on our properties in the area, and get distribution checks from our families' Mississippi corporations.

But frankly, if we'd known how well Madison would turn out, we would have stayed in Mississippi.

How is Gnome Alaska 8:12?

As the water rises, each turtle moves to higher ground and a nicer log. Eventually the turtle either finds a new pond or drowns. Right now, turtles on the Madison and Brandon logs are momentarily happy but are eyeing Flora and Raymond. Both of those logs resemble Madison 40 years ago.

But, eventually Utica, Fayette, Port Gibson, Yazoo City, Canton and Jacktown northwest will flood even those ponds.

"How is Gnome Alaska 8:12?"

Uh, joke, maybe?

You know the city is really spelled "Nome", right?

If it's a joke it's minimally amusing. If it's not you need a remedial class from JPS.

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.
