Thugs try to rob a competitive shooter and gravely pay for it. (Updated)

Jackson has one dead thug on the streets today as a robbery attempt in Northeast Jackson went awry.

Eastover & Pinewood.



A doctor was leaving home  to compete in a shooting competition held at Magnolia Pistol Range in Byram at approximately 7:45 AM today. He made several trips from the house to his truck carrying what he needed for the competition. Unknown to him, two black males were cruising Ridgewood Road looking for someone to rob. They happened upon him walking to his truck near the intestection Ridgewood and Eastover roads.  They took him captive at gunpoint and forced him drive to an ATM and withdraw a large amount of money.  They also mentioned some intentions concerning his wife who was back at home.  Intentions that were not exactly nice in nature.



They stopped at Eastover and Pinewood.  They told him to get out of the vehicle.  The good Doc managed to grab a pistol as he exited the truck and began firing.  He shot and killed an Edwin Robinson of Cooper Road.  One person at the scene  said "he shot the shit out of him".  The other suspect managed to run away and is currently at-large. It should be noted that there are woods on one side of the road. The suspect apparently had parked a tan SUV over at Northminister Baptist Church.  He ran to the church and left in the SUV. It did not have a license plate. 

JJ is withholding the identity of the victim at this time. 

Update: Here is his criminal record according to my research.

There were no felonies or indictments filed at the circuit clerk's office. Justice Court clerk and jail records show: 

Simple Assault
Resisting Arrest
Seat Belt Violation
Disobeying a Law Enforcement Officer
Public Profanity

He was booked in on 5-18-13 just before midnight hours and released on 5-19-13.   There was a warrant out for his arrest as he apparently did not appear in court.   So he apparently acted like a fool on a traffic stop and never showed up in court.

Its good the man defended himself, his wife and his home. It is his right to do so. It is also good that there is one less criminal on the street.

That the criminal lost his life was by his own choosing.

Glad the guy is ok and the thug is dead.

This is why I moved out of the city though. It's not worth putting my life at risk and my family in an attempt to save a dying city. As the buffer around Eastover continues to shrink, these type of incidents will continue to occur.

I also want to note the CL headline on the matter uses the term "alleged" - another example of the bias from the "traditional" press.

I can hear it now. Yeah, buddy. He got 'em. That is what I would've done. That will teach 'em a lesson.


Well, tactically speaking, the Doc is damn lucky to live.

1. They got the drop on him. It's before 8:00 AM. He was walking to his truck. They didn't know his truck had firearms or ammo. They just saw an older white guy and figured easy pickings.

Despite his training, despite his guns, despite his skill, they still got the drop on him. That is more important than firepower.

2. He was at their mercy until they made him get out of the truck and he converted that moment of opportunity into action. They could've popped him at any time before that moment.

3. Speaking of popping him, on one side of the street is a house. The other side of the street is woods. Why do you think they were making him get out in front of the woods after telling him what they were going to do to his wife?

4. In other words, he was lucky and got that one moment. He took advantage of it. But the important part was they got the jump on him in the first place.

Kingfish, in response to your comments:
There is a scientific fact that action time is quicker than reaction time. To put in a way that most Mississippians can understand, that is why the most successful football coaches put their better athletes on defense. Regardless of a private citizen's training or experience, it would be exceeding difficult to function in society in a manner that a criminal does not have the tactical advantage. The criminal acts first. That is why it is called selfdefense. The criminal always has the advantage. Further, most private citizens have a respect for the law, criminals do not: advantage criminal! There are ways one can minimize ones disadvantages, but the disadvantage can not be eliminated.

Eastover needs gates. Those thugs should not be allowed to drive down that part of Ridgewood. Seriously.
A gate from Meadowbrook to Eastover drive?
Move the school, (no one in the neighborhood attends anyway); move the churches and lock it down. The tax base is too important to Jackson to be left at risk.

Exactly! I mean, why address the systemic and widespread problems in our city and state that lead to these little thugs having little to no other choice but crime when you can just wait for them to commit the crime we all know they are going to and hopefully get lucky enough to shoot them? Much easier solution.

Actually, it's covered under "...as the buffer around Eastover continues to shrink...".

Mollie may not be as "above it all" as she presumably thinks she is.

People who live less than fifteen seconds off Ridgewood should not consider themselves to be immune to fallout from urban decay on Northside.

Eastover is on the decline and this won't help. Gates will never happen since the property owners would have to maintain streets. Eastover isn't exactly Highland Park or Mountain Brook. That's real wealth and not done on credit. Here's your solution: flee!

Give him some more bullets, so he can shoot the shit out of the rest of those worthless pieces of shit that inhibit the city if Jackson!

You can't fence and gate all that area, and I think the doctor might live north of Eastover on Ridgewood Road. All I know is he is one fortunate man to be alive now. It is a miracle those thugs didn't kill him before he could kill one of them. I just wish he had killed both of them. Two thugs off the street is better any day than one. Everyone, please be alert wherever you live.

Good for the doctor. My only regret is that he ran out of bullets before he could get both of them. I wonder what the other thug thinks now about how good of an idea that was. Maybe he will try it again with someone equally as prepared, capable, and willing to act, and he can join his bro......

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!!!

"Forced him to withdraw a large amount of money...". I thought there was a $300 transaction limit on ATM withdrawals.

The whole story is crazy, if not questionable. Two criminals and one old man and he is able to pick up a firearm from the seat of the vehicle while they are distracted? They didn't know it was sitting there?

Most comical of all the posts is Kingfish weighing in (after fifty posts) to set all the dummies straight with no less than bullet points for the proletariat. The professor walks to the front of the classroom to summarize while all the little people mumble.

@1:22 Seriously? You approve moving in more criminals? Niice.
This whole thing saddens me - hate that a 22 year old is dead and presumably not in a better place, but he made those choices. So young, but he threatened others and so what do you do? I have a gun and will use it without a second thought if my family is attacked. On a side note - did anyone else see the report of a guy trying to steal cars on RIchardson, who then ran to "gated" Bridgwater and stole a car there? Not sure where is safe now.

Ya think someone staged a fake kidnapping or what? These two poor guys just were suckered in to being accused of kidnapping? Are you serious?????

To the comment that they got the drop on the doctor. I imagine he had his handguns in a shooting bag, without magazine in it. So he had to grab the gun, get a mag in there and chamber. Very fast.

Chauncer...I was on scene when police were taking his shooting bag out of his truck. It was in the rear drivers floorboard of an extended cab truck. So I doubt they even knew it was there. It wasn't like he had his pistol laying out in full site. Nothing fishy about it at all.

"Jackson has one dead thug on the streets today"

Can't believe y'all went through 60 comments and no one noticed the article should have made international headlines! A real zombi

Seriously, Sorry for my friend who did the shooting and the terror he must have felt throughout the event. Now, I have a self-imposed $200.00 limit on my ATM and, I can draw as small amount as $20.00. Don't know 'bout the fellow with a $600.minimum posted above. About neighborhood gates: Do not believe you have to maintain the streets with gates in place; the Country Club got new pavement from the City and they have a gate. The new trend is for passive gates, which means that anyone can sit and wait for the gate to open, they just get photographed while they are sitting there. This method does help prevent crime and is becoming more popular. Atlanta is full of "walled mini-cities" and it is growing. Gates and fences built community and prevent crime as well as people speeding through a neighborhood thus allowing more walking and children playing.

I applaud the doctor's quick thinking and bravery.

I'm impressed that, unlike the unimaginative sissies who fled Jackson and continue to urge cowardice, the doctor stayed so he could be nearer his patients.

The doctor is a REAL man.

A real man is capable of defending himself and securing his home and family. He doesn't fear ignorant bullies.

Y'all have more genetically in common with the thugs than the doctor!

God help us if this Nation is ever under attack. Most of you would be refugees rather than stand and fight for our country!

"I have a dream" that more people who did not consider purchasing a gun for protection will start doing so in larger numbers now.

Also will get pistol shooting lessons, etc.

My Regions account has a $600 limit. Maybe the victim had a gun under his front seat. A common place to keep your everyday riding around gun. He gets out, reaches for his gun with his left hand, shoots with either his right or left hand. It would happen quickly, especially if numnuts in the front seat is looking right and the victim is acting scared and feeble.

If you want to see what's wrong with the black youth ( not all black youth but the majority) just look at there Facebook pages. They post the vilest of the vile and I guess they don't care who sees it. The stuff that Guttalife was posting is pretty common. i have some weird friend suggestions come up on my Facebook page (I guess due to the business I'm in) and I've looked at a few of them out of curiousity. Absolutely disgusting things that they say about women. If I posted that garbage even in my youth I would have been shunned and smacked by mom and dad. But no matter how you were raised, getting some guns and going to the nice part of town to rob somebody should never go thru your mind. He got exactly what he deserved and so did all the other ones that strayed to the burbs and northeast Jackson.

KF and the others who understand that being ambushed puts one at a disadvantage are right.

Very few of these violent criminals came out of their mother's womb as sociopaths!

What do you mean "we"? The children of most people posting here are statistically unlikely to be involved in crime. We've raised our kids right. Saying that isn't arrogance or self-righteousness (as you so arrogantly and self-righteously claim), it's what you're supposed to do, the minimum level of competence as a parent. What do you imagine we have failed to do here, drive on down to the ghetto and give parking lot lectures on why rape and robbery are bad so please don't do that ok? Your little Society Failed Them card has been overplayed. We've spent trillion$$$ on social welfare programs. Many of us have volunteered our time and resources in outreach programs, taking away from our own families to contribute to others. We haven't failed them. You know who failed them? Their parents and their extended family members, who were too busy clubbing and fighting and drinking and drugging and robbing and rioting and engaging in mindblowing levels of sexual promiscuity to actually parent their own children. You are out of your gourd if you expect the school system or churches or volunteer-staffed mentoring organizations like Big Brother/Big Sister to have any significant chance of counteracting the familial cesspool thugs like this were raised in. As long as we subsidize and excuse this twisted version of "family", it will continue to produce thugs who see it as their right to prey on the decent people of society.

I absolutely did NOT defend the programs you mentioned, but pointed out that they are not succeeding.

I said " we" , because if you are raising your children to be like you, they will have your inability to have a civilized discussion, engage in analytical thinking or strategically address the future! And, " we" refers to the collective society toward which some of see ourselves as a responsible member!

Like GuttaLife, you are belligerent to be belligerent and flex your muscles instead of your brain!

How. pray tell. do you plan to stop this trend? Do you plan to keep moving? Do you think this feral member of our species has not already procreated? Do you think him and others like him are not reproducing themselves several times over? Do you think you can insult or belittle his type into good behavior or convince him to find Jesus tomorrow?

Personally, I don't want to explore how the good doctor is feeling today beyond imagining he's content that he and his wife are alive and unharmed. That kind of unnecessary navel gazing can introduce doubt and hesitation if/when I ever have to make the same split second decision he made. I don't want those kinds of negative, distracting thoughts in my mind as I aim for center mass and take up the slack in the trigger. There's enough distraction in contemplating the possibility that some overly ambitious DA will decide to make an example out of me. No need to make it even harder to do what I have to do.

Anonymous said...

1:54 - I have a feeling it was the comments/suggestions by the perps that they were about to go hurt/rape his wife that likely sent him over the edge. In a similar situation, I can tell you for sure I wouldn't hesitate to take out someone threatening my spouse or children.

If it were me in that situation, I would defend myself however I needed to defend myself. Would I feel good about shooting and killing the criminal, no but I wouldn't regret or hesitate defending myself, family, or whomever is with me. No matter where you live it's important to be aware of your surroundings. However, when it gets to the point that every time you come out of your house you're adraid of being carjacked etc...it's time to move.

I can guarantee that I would not have any doubts about shooting somebody that just threatened my wife and family. Thankfully he did shoot those animals because they would have done who knows what to his wife. If I see him at the gym tomorrow, I plan on telling him job well done. These thugs need to know that death is a very real consequence if they decide threaten somebody.

This whole story is sad on so many levels. First, I think the rational, thinking folks out there would unanimously support what the good doctor did. He had no choice, and he did what I hope we would all have done under such adverse and frightening circumstances, especially considering the threat to his wife. If you view one or two of the crook's videos on Facebook you will realize how frightening it must have been to have been kidnapped by such a person.

Second, I think all of this cheerleading is misplaced. I am sure the shooter--a good man--is struggling with the fact that he had to kill a man, albeit in self defense and to protect his wife. As a veteran of the First Infantry Division, I never met a fellow soldier who felt good about killing a man. Soldiers have to kill, but it is never a happy occasion.

Third, this event is another blow to the city where my grandparents, parents and I grew up. I have always loved Jackson, but I must disclose that I moved out of jackson in 2006 after having lived in four different homes in the Belhaven area since my birth many years ago. Twelve years ago when a friend asked me if she and her husband should buy a home in Easter, I advised they would never get their money back. They built in Madison County. They have thanked me many times for the advise. So sad.

Back to the crook, it is really sad that there are many like him in Jackson, Mississippi. Many of you will not think this through, but the man is a product of the culture in Jackson. I will not suggest who is the blame, but I will say again--it is so sad.

Finally, it is so sad that since the Belhaven killing and now with the broad daylight kidnapping in NE Jackson, nobody will ever feel safe again anywhere in Jackson. People--blacks and whites--will continue to move to adjacent counties to find safety. The Jackson tax base will continue to plummet, and there will never be enough money to remedy the infrastructure issues in the city. No, the legislature will not bail Jackson out.

Finally, think it is sad that so many people post racial comments that are so hateful. May God bless us all.

Something I've been wondering/thinking a lot about lately. I no longer live nearby but my parents still live in the house in NE Jackson where I grew up.

Why doesn't 39211 secede from Jackson and incorporate itself as its own township?

There's precedent elsewhere (I don't know Mississippi Code, but in other states). I am sure I sound like a crazy Tea Party-er here (of which I am not one, truly), but has anyone explored this?

Good job Doc! I live in Jackson and will now be very, very cautious when leaving and entering my house. Any suspicious blacks walking the street will get a speed dial call to the police.
The crime spree is not new in Jackson. 10 years ago I looked outside my window and witness this passenger car park by my driveway. The driver a women (mother) told her teenage son to get out and lift the 2 potted plant by the driveway into the trunk of their car. This teen age boy did it so fast I didn't put 2 and 2 together until they sped off. So your mind has to understand (comprehend) what going on before you react. The criminal has his plan and exercuting it as fast as possible. Sadly, the pots were cheap plastic and the plants were half dead.

Just like they follow seniors and the unsuspecting home from the I55 Kroger at quitting time/dusk. They look to prey on their victims when they least expect a gun and a holdup. If it wasn't this doctor Saturday morning it would have been someone else.

9:11 You obviously are proud you read some book on logic but you failed miserably to understand it. The vet posted of his personal experience, which you can neither endorse nor refute since you weren't there with him 24/7/365.

You could refute his claim by posting one single, VERIFIABLE report of a "fellow soldier who felt good about killing a man", but you didn't. You either can't understand the concept (although you think you do in your adorable pseudointellectual way) but you really just annoy the grownups who do understand these things y your constant, predictable, interjections of "Appeal to Authority FALLACY."

Like the vet who posted of his experience I have treated hundreds of vets and not known one who "felt good about killing a man". Quite often it's the opposite, and part of the basis of PTSD.

The victim was the doctor that they kidnapped, robbed, and threatened his wife.

It's called critical thinking. Use it.

This is the vet again. I can understand how we felt good tactically about killing the enemy to advance our cause, but I never knew a soldier who felt good about the act of killing another person.

So, I still think and believe that the good doctor is struggling with the pain of shooting another human even thought it was the right thing to do. I really feel for him.

This is trite, but I remember when my dad had to have our little dog put to sleep for many reasons. My dad, a WWII vet, weeped after the procedure. This should tell you something.

That is preposterous.

Not long ago a black man wasted a kid while rummaging through his car. No charges - no grand jury. That kid was unarmed."

- Former prosecutor here.... In my neck of the woods, we would always take a case like this before the grand jury. Not for the purpose of indicting the person who exercised self-defense (unless the facts warranted it) but to exonerate them and give them some peace of mind that they don't face criminal liability. Can't speak for Hinds County DA.

That's no guarantee that the perp's family won't file a wrongful death lawsuit. While a civil suit is no walk in the park, I'd rather get served with a summons and complaint than a capias and indictment.

You missed the point. This will cost the victim about $50,000. No insurance is going to pay for this. He will have to hire Kirksey or someone of his caliber. And this DA does not ALWAYS take these to the grand jury. He can simply not charge the dude. I know it...I've seen him do it.

Meanwhile, the guy in NW Jackson who literally wasted a black youth from his kitchen window to his carport (not even an enclosed garage) who was unarmed....did not have to spend more than the cost of a replacement window on a Cadillac.

That is inherently unfair...no matter if the good doctor has the money or not.

The wrongful death suit, should Ashley file it, would be much easier.....just turn that over to State Farm.

It is well known that black criminals target white people. I didn't even know there were people looney enough to question this. It'll get much worse before it gets any better.

As a 20-something black male, I refuse to defend actions that violate the basic golden rule. I won't make any excuses or the actions of these young men- they made bad choices and one of them suffered the ultimate consequence.

With that said, i find it deeply disturbing that folks would think that this behavior is (a) condoned in the black community or (b) representative of a majority of the black community. There are plenty of black Jacksonians that not only uphold the rule of law but also make tireless attempts at early intervention, often neglected.

With that said, I am glad the life of the victim was preserved and I still have hope for the future of our city.

KF - thanks for the update on his criminal record. You said his only arrest was on 5-18-13 and he was released on 5-19-13; however, there is a video he posted on his facebook (also the one you posted) on 9-25-14 that says he just got out of jail. What was that for?

4:21, there is hope for the future of our city because of you and others like you. One major reason Jackson and other cities are in trouble is due to ignorance and hate. That's the road Dee Robinson chose Saturday. It didn't work for him. Ignorance and hate are choices as is wisdom and love. "I send you forth as sheep amongst wolves. Be wise as the serpent and harmless as doves." Matthew 10:16. 4:21 is right. We can't become the beast in order to defeat the beast or all that is won is beastiality. The hope for Jackson lies in good people uniting, not dividing. Dividing got us here. It hasn't worked. Hate hasn't worked. Ignorance, stupidity, and turning a blind eye hasn't worked. Time to try a new approach. "The world is now too dangerous for anything but truth and too small for anything but love," ~William Sloane Coffin

That doctor that many are speaking of is one of the kindest men I will ever know. I am not on here just acting like I know him. I have known him personally as a friend for many years and his wife. I feel bad that he had to make the decision he made, but who in the world wouldn't try to protect their family. It is sad to me that so many things are centered around the color of the skin. If I were in the same position I would do whatever I could to save my wife and myself and race would not come into play. I'm sure because I do know him as well as I do he is sad that a split action decision had to made. I'm personally glad we have the right to have a gun and would hate to know I was forced into taking a life by protecting my family. The victim is most definitely the doctor and the horror imposed on his wife and him. I'm sorry for the loss of any young man regardless of the color of his skin , but actions come with consequences.

I moved from Eastover about two years ago. I lived there 24 years. Just before moving, a woman I know was shot down the street while feeding a neighbor's dog when the neighbor was on vacation. The intruders killed the pet - corner of Eastover and Ridgewood. I am so happy to be out of Jackson. I can't imagine anyone investing in property there. Property values in Eastover were declining last I checked. The city is a sewer. Other neighbors had a home invasion, stolen cars, robberies. The police do nothing. I had a robbery and the police suggested I comb the pawn shops to retrieve my belongings. Jackson went to hell in the 1980's.

The doctor was really lucky. I hope he moves his family somewhere safe. No one should have to live like they're in Jo'burg. I am so sick of thugs. We ought to have "thug season."

Although this had a "good outcome," I am sure this event will color the rest of the victim's life - the anger, the threat to his wife, the crap he will undoubtedly have to go through if these idiots bring some sort of lawsuit, even the indictment.

Wow, sounds like the guy who got nailed shouldn't have threatened the Docs wife and children.
A robbery is bad enough , but when you threaten a man's family, you cross the no mercy line. Too bad he didn't kill the other guy too.

Update:

It turns out that the deceased criminal's cohort was nothing less than a corrections officer! The deceased msn had Face Book postings and Instagram postings that show blatant ties to Gangster Disciples and that the deceased criminal was back and forth between Chicago and Jackdon. The "Star of David" necklace he brazenly displays on Face Book is a recognized symbol of the Gangster Disciples and refers to their founder, David Barksdale (born in Sallis, MS), whom they called "King David". That "Star of David" certainly did not imply that this thug was Jewish!

Jackson and surrounding areas had better realize that gangs and their criminal ways and intentions have moved here to stay. Be prepared or be a victim!

Kingfish, thank you for such a kind and dignified response. I didn't have the courage to back up my brother from the 1st ID in May. I will now. Killing a man, and especially, enjoying it is not normal. If you say it is or that you've got some kind of taste for it, you're a stone cold sociopath. I was at Fallujah and Ramadi with the 82nd and Kandahar and Hemland with the 5th and 1st. I never liked it. Never got used to it. Still have night terrors about shots I TOOK, shit I DID.
Again, thanks for your kind response and our courage, Kingfish. You ain't a bad guy.

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.

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.
