Ridgeland looking for new chief.

‎Ridgeland police chief Randy Tyler submitted his resignation to the Board of Aldermen tonight. His resignation will be effective June 30.

Kingfish note: Word on the street is the Chief would not move from the county to the city, hence some friction.

I dont think Randy has made quite 4 years as chief unless his time as interim chief counts. Houston stepped down when he ran for sheriff but went back in as chief when he lost. If I'd been Randy Tyler I would have told Ridgeland to get screwed at that point.

Randy Tucker is just now finishing his first term.

Randy is a great chief. The mayor wants a yes man and Chief Tyler wasn't that guy, but John Neal is definitely a knee pad wearer, so I'm sure he's next in line. Watch RPD go down hill starting in June.

KingFish, please go to WAPT and post the article regarding JPD trying to stop police chases at their city limits. Lee Vance made some BS comments toward police and voices need to be heard.

8:26 is right. Stokes makes a classic statement how outlying suburbs chase their criminals into Jackson and Jackson residents are hurt.

I guess he does not understand that the burbs are most often chasing people back to their homes in South, West, and North jackson.

Can Ridgeland bring back that convicted perjurer from his current job in Tennessee?

Lee Vance, he doesn't even deserve the title Chief. Better yet he was the BOTTOM of the barrel. Look how long the guy has been at JPD and finally when they ran out of people to hire or promote they settled for Lee. For a chief to make a comment like he did, I just hope that we don't have to try and find ways to protect our citizens from other police officers", just says a lot. Lee and Kenny, neither of you can protect your citizens from crime now, at least you have other chiefs in the Metro area that aren't scared to protect citizens, which is exactly why they chase and most always catch the criminals. Why do you think you have so much crime in Jackson? You don't see people shooting, robbing, carjacking people in any surrounding city do you? Yea you may have 1 here or there, but we all take care of business. Criminals know who they can run over and who they can't. 3 criminal activities in Richland and 3 to the jail house. A crime in Jackson is a field release, you don't even go to jail. I know I saw it last week on a drug stop. (Bet you citizens didn't know this). Go to Madison or Rankin counties and see how fast they will lock you up for screwing up. Lee you really need to take a lesson from other surrounding cities and see just how their department is run because Jackson is awful. I don't care how much paint you put on it or how pretty you want to dress it up at the end of the day, your city is the worst in the state and you DO nothing to fix it. So with that being said, we will help the citizens out as we remove criminals from Jackson 1 pursuit at a time

To 8:20....you are either a Tyler ass kisser or an idiot. Ask anyone in the RPD, outside of the 4-5 other Tyler ass kissers and see how the department has deteriorated since he became chief. Randy is a great guy; Chief, not so much. He's totally uninvolved in the department operations, not responsive to the businesses and citizens of the city (just TRY to get a return call from him!!), and so focused on a myriad of personal problems, he can't be bothered with the department or it's officers.

Jackson has a misdemeanor possession of crack cocain charge. 5 rocks or less is a field release(ticket). Go to court pay a little fine, no big deal. Madison/ Rankin counties you are charged with a felony for half a rock.

Assuming Randy's pay was increased while he was interim, yes, that would count toward his high four years. High four only means highest dollar earnings in top four years. Has nothing to do with job title or status. Look for him to be head of security at Sam's in Madison.

If Randy wanted to remain as chief, he could. Fact is, anybody who can get a copy of "the tape" can be chief as long as they want, even if they develop brain cancer.

Note to K.F.
There is a story here, even though it's been many years ago, just don't ask the mayor, he will deny it.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
