Update on the Hattiesburg murder investigation.

‎Sources familiar with the investigation of the murder of the two Hattiesburg police officer gave JJ an unconfirmed account of the horrific events that took place this weekend.

Officer Deen approached the vehicle.  Marvin Banks was outside the car but there was a gun on the front seat.   He pulled the gun out and shot Deen in the face. Deen's face is supposedly covered with residue. The source said he was "dead before he even hit the ground".    Both officers were wearing bullet-proof vests.  Officer Tate turned to run and get cover behind the door of his car. Banks allegedly fired at him and hit him in the back below his vest. The bullet went upward into  his upper body, hit the aorta and other organs.   Banks is reported to have confessed to the crime. 

This is unconfirmed but as stated earlier, I am pretty confident in my sources to post this alleged account of what took place Saturday night in Hattiesburg.

Any idea KF why the Banks bros were out on the streets? Does Forrest County have a catch-and-release program and a bench populated with Tomie Green equivalents?

I'm from Hattiesburg and everything I have seen, the Forrest County Circuit Court judge and DA are good and tough.

I'm always amused by the armchair police procedure experts on Facebook and elsewhere who opine on the creative ways they would defuse the situation without resorting to force.

In reality, this is how it happens. You take your eyes off the wrong guy for one second and you're dead. You don't even know it's happening. Hence, the only responsible way for police to handle ANY level of resistance is to gain total control immediately and maintain it until the suspect is cuffed and in the vehicle.

Close the airports and the interstates. I'm sure Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are on their way to protest the arrest of these thug killers - because they are black their arrest must be a racially motivated act.

I am sincerely fearful for law enforcement officers because the present environment villafies them and celebrates the thugs.

I'm always amused by the anonymous experts who have no greater claim to their expertise while anonymous than do the "armchair" experts they bemoan.

I didn't approve the comment because it had nothing to do with this post. Want to gripe about Congress, there are other threads.

Their poor families. My thoughts are with them.

5:33, it's 5:22.

My expertise comes from eight years of defending section 1983 excessive force lawsuits brought against police.

I'm sure the phrase "have no greater claim to their expertise while anonymous" means something in your head, but you'll have to translate for me. Did my expertise go away because I didn't tell you my background? Did I forget stuff I knew because you didn't know how I knew it? Did you mean to say "claim to their authority"? Did I invoke any authority?

They shot the first officer out of pure prejudice. The second one was just unfortunate backup. If liquori had shown up first, we wouldn't have any dead officers.

Why turn this racial? The cops were both blue. Plain and simple.

8:33, that just sucks. No need for that. The shooters were thugs and the families of both cops deserve a little respect and dignity right now. Your comment is just BS and ill timed. Show some class. Borrow some if you have to.

Because it was racial. No matter how much people don't want to admit it.

....because, he would have opened fire on site
because, he knew they were up to no good
because, ...screw you you black racist POS
I didn't enslave you or any of your relatives
Stop trying to tarnish these LEO's for doing the their job, black, white..right, wrong, stop being an ASSHOLE, Jackwagon.

8:33 is likely correct. But given the admininistrations (Obama) war on cops in the past couple of years, is there any shock that this happened? That the shooter was a member of an oppressed minority?

Sad indeed

In 2011, 72 police officers were feloniously killed. 49 of those were killed by whites,29 were killed by African Americans felons,2 by Native Americans, 1 by Asian/Pacific and in 2 cases the race was unreported.

51 officers were killed last year but the FBI stats weren't available in detail.

Only 14% of the murders in the US in 2011 were blacks killing whites.

This is a horrible tragedy and loss to Hattiesburg of two fine young men serving their white, one black.

Both races should be united in grief.

Those of you trying to take this as an opportunity to negatively stereotype crime by race should be ashamed. I'm ashamed of you just as many in the black community, I'm sure are ashamed of those arrested for this horrible murder!

Al and Jesse wont be coming to Mississippi for this. They have no grounds to. Both a black and white officer were murdered. It makes their point moot.

@10:18pm---- WHAT YOU SAID, BROTHER!! Took the words right out of my mouth! Thankyou

Not My Boy No Way said...

Yesterday, I was supportive of the mother who said her boys were guilty but she still loved them. Now she appears on camera, grief stricken blaming the murders on 'he's on drugs and this was not him' and another person, apparently a sister, using vulgar language that was bleeped.

Back to things as usual.

@ 6:44 Since the early 1980's the number of murders where whites killed blacks has been about half the number of blacks killing whites. Just saying. Source:

Mayor Dupree plays blame game:

I wish you people would just dig down in your souls and TRY to show some respect to both these grieving families, officers, and citizens all over this state. The only race that should be brought up in this case is the HUMAN race. Today let us pray for their families and save our racial fights for another day. Please!!!

Mayor Dupree, PhD is once again towing the liberal line decrying concealed carry laws that had nothing to do with the murder of his two officers. A revolving door felon, first arrested at the tender age of 12, a felony under his belt by 18, was in possession of a illegal firearm. Which by law is a felony.

Law abiding taxpayers own properly purchased and permitted firearms. For which, they attend additional instructional classes paid for by their own money. Then additional money is paid to the great State of Mississippi for fingerprinting and yet another background check. Then the law abiding taxpayer is issued an ID card allowing him/her to carry the legal firearm.

Would you be shocked to learn both Mayor Dupree, PhD and First Lady Dupree, EdD possess such ID cards and legal firearms? But why deal in facts?

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.
