Did the mother of Marvin Banks try to blame the police?

The mother of alleged cop killer Marvin Banks blamed drugs for her son's problems and then seemed to blame the police for her son's death.  Jeff Amy reported for the Associated Press:

The mother said officers often stop young black men without cause in Hattiesburg, sometimes simply to ask them what they are doing.

“The way police here in Hattiesburg harass young black men, you could tell something was going to happen, but I never thought it would be my sons,” she said.

Mr. Amy provided the best account available so far of what took place that Saturday night as well as the criminal history of Marvin Banks.  Some nuggest of information from the story:

*Marvin Banks had already done two stints in state prison and faced an unserved indictment on drug charges

* At that point, Strain said, Banks shot Deen and Tate, who was backing up Deen. Both officers were wearing bullet resistant vests that couldn’t protect them against the gunshots. Deen was shot in the face, and Tate was shot in the lower back, Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict said.

The "harassment of blacks by law enforcement" really is the police trying to enforce laws, prevent violence and catch criminals. People who do not break laws, do not hang out in bad locations, and do not behave badly do not attract the attention of law enforcement and therefore are not "harassed." Bad behavior attracts the attention of law enforcement. It is very simple! There is no excuse for shooting two police officers.

No, the mother DIDN'T blame the police in her comments. She did, however, acknowledge the drug issues that her son was dealing with and she did agree with the charges that were filed. Those who are looking for a distraction will always find one. Her comments are no different than the parents of the guy in Madison who stripped naked in the high school and wrestled with the Ridgeland police officer. They acknowledged that problem that they thought he had. The difference is that one incident lead to the death of officers and the other one could have.

The next 20.5 months cannot end quickly enough. I am so ready for an end to this incessant race-baiting garbage that has infected our country and is receiving wall-to-wall coverage in the media. Ready for leadership that is competent, positive, upbeat, and focused on getting this country back to work and back to its stride as the greatest place on earth for freedom and opportunity.

So Mama Bear says her son and grandson live with her. She was "resting before her night shift at the Nursing Home where she works when she got the call"!
What about the kid????!!!
She leaves him at home all night either alone or with his drugged up son?
Arrest her for child endangerment!

I am from Hattiesburg, born and raised. It is very true that police profile individuals; based on time, location, conditions of vehicle, personal appearance (race included), etc. This does happen, and is very much a tradition. This is not necessarily a wrong-doing of any particular police officer, as this activity is explicitly taught in general law enforcement training seminars across the state (subscribed to by virtually all local branches of law enforcement). For those who would like to rebut those fact, get yours straight first.

Second... There (so far) seems to be a unanimous agreement that the 4 suspects were absolutely in the wrong. Honestly, I have no idea how anyone could possibly see that any other way. The mother made many more comments than just the 1 or 2 highlighted in this post. She has expressly acknowledged her sons' wrongs and sincerely apologized to the public for their actions. She is humiliated, frustrated, and completely heartbroken--as any mother likely would be. I think she's entitled to some irrational expression. Mayor Dupree has emphasized that the city (state) grieves together; and, we all certainly are. This is an unthinkable tragedy for us. We aren't accustomed to riots, violent protests, cop killers, etc...it isn't often we have to face the difficult questions presented by this event.

11:42 11:42 You're posting anonymously, so why not say what you mean? Allow me to translate:

"I wish black people would shut up and not be on the news anymore. Traditional and social media is making me confront things I don't want to see or talk about. What I prefer is erasure. But I'm not racist, though."

Please reply with something about your black friends, Al Sharpton, or Jesse Jackson so I can score a bingo in today's installment of "Racist Sh1theels Posting on JJ" today. Thanks in advance.

You have no idea. It's a shame kingfish blocks so many of my comments. I would LOVE to have an honest, factual conversation about race without you cry babies getting your feelings hurt. Its amazing to me how many people can't open their eyes and see the obvious.

Well, then, get prepared for a string of racist presidents. Does anyone on here know the demographics of when the USA will not have a white majority? It's coming--2043.

It's also easy to draw district lines to create the illusion of a conservative majority, or a liberal one for that matter. It does not happen in nation-wide elections. Get ready for Hillary 2016. The writing is ON THE WALL.

That's exactly what made America great.

"The current president is responsible for racism." - closet racists--who get their feelings hurt when called out for their racism--frequently posting on this blog

In the last three days we have had a white couple gunned down by a group of blacks for just driving down the interstate, and a white man gunned down by a group of blacks for standing beside a power plant. Both were instances of violence out of sheer hate. None of the victims were robbed, or anything. Just shot out of hatred.

How many more whites are we going to allow to be slaughtered by blacks before we are allowed to discuss this epidemic?

With all due respect, racism existed in this country before Obama was elected and it will exist after he leaves office.

The mother should have demanded her sons respect her,then this wouldn't have happened. They would have been a doctor or a judge!

" passive racism"
" closet racism"
Seriously, how much time do you spend researching all of the different layers of racism?

How should I quantify the black kid ( I just pointed out his race) randomly saying " white girl bleed a lot" on the Internet?

What kind of racism is that since there are apparently so many layers and angles of racism that I didn't study while in school?

Please, oh please, enlighten me.

Racism.. Yes let's talk about it. Oh sure, there are racist white people. But untill you tell us about this " white girl bleed a lot " racism coming from the black youth these days, then I remain in a place of severe discomfort ( and it isn't of my own doing).

I love when these threads morph into Breitfart Junior and Freep Lite. Tell us more about all the murderous black people killing all the white folks from your rural bunkers, folks.

Also, how come no blog post today about Tyree Jones, the JPD commander who posted idiocy via social media like Subway girl?

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.

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.
