Thug of the Day

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following press release:


Rankin County Sheriff's Office Makes Arrest in Attempted Kidnapping/Robbery/Assault
Meet Beau


The Rankin County Office arrested GARY RAYMOND MAPP aka "Beau" Mapp of 1035 Windrose Drive, Brandon, on Wednesday June 17thfor the charges of kidnapping, burglary/home invasion, strong armed robbery, aggravated assault with a weapon and impersonating a law enforcement officer.  The charges stem from a 911 call received around 2:00 pm from a home owner that reported one of their neighbor's showed up at her residence bloody and handcuffed.  Deputies on scene discovered the victim was contacted at his friends residence by MAPP who was wearing body armor with a law enforcement patch on it and a sidearm.  MAPP ordered the victim outside of the residence and then placed handcuffs on him.   MAPP then entered the residence looking for another individual related to the homeowner.  MAPP eventually brought the victim inside and forced him into a bathtub. When the victim was presented with the right opportunity, he fled outside the residence only to be tackled by MAPP.  MAPP was captured on security cameras physically assaulting the handcuffed victim.  The victim was able to escape again, but not before MAPP places a plastic "zip tie" around the victim's neck.
With the assistance of the homeowner and family, investigators were able to develop MAPP as a prime suspect.  Investigators obtained a search warrant for his Windrose residence.  Investigators seized stolen electronics, illegal weapons, a motorcycle and a large amount of other items believed to be stolen.  Deputies recovered several law enforcement badges and a police jacket.   In addition to this items used to impersonate a law enforcement officer, deputies also recovered ball caps with FBI, sheriff and police written across the front.  A blue light and burglary tools were also located and seized. 
While deputies were still at MAPP's residence, additional Rankin and Hinds County deputies and investigators began to follow up on a tip that MAPP was at a hotel on I 55 north in Jackson.  A search of his hotel room produced items that were stolen from the victim's residence. MAPP was located hiding in a utility room on the hotel grounds.  MAPP cooperated with investigators and led them to the location where he disposed of other stolen items from this burglary.
The victim in this case is to be commended for his actions, he provided detailed information to the sheriff's office which a vital role in the quick apprehension of MAPP.  I want to thank not only my dedicated deputies, but Sheriff Tyrone Lewis and his deputies along with members of the local FBI Safe Streets Task Force for their help in making a quick arrest and taking this dangerous person off the street.
  MAPP will appear before Rankin County Court Judge Kent McDaniel for an Initial Appearance where we will ask for him to be held without bond. MAPP will then face Rankin County District Attorney Michael Guest and our Circuit Judges.  I'm sure we will be able to keep Rankin County and the Metro Area safe from Mr. Mapp for a long time.

This is bizarre. Has to be more to this story. Also, criminals live in Brandon????????????????

Criminals might try to live in Brandon, but they don't for long.

So this guy was pretending to be law enforcement?

I am going to go out on a limb here and assume drugs are involved in some way.

The criminal is on facebook. I don't know how to link but you can see his page, he uses the name Beau Mapp.

Dude lived on the reservoir 10 miles from Brandon.

Wow! Thug of the Day is correct. I just read an article that quoted NASA scientists saying the world's axis is shifting. Maybe that's the reason for the crazies. I am folding a tinfoil hat at the moment to protect me.

If you look at where Windrose Drive is, it's a stretch to say that it's in Brandon.

People who impersonate law enforcement personnel while committing a crime should be subject to an extremely harsh penalty. I’m reading and hearing of so many stories like this lately, and when you can buy ANYTHING related to military/law enforcement accessories, gear, equipment, uniforms, etc, it’s becoming more dangerous. I did a quick search, but all I could find was House Bill 322, which looks as if there’s a maximum of 3 years jail time.

Does anyone know if this right? During a crime, and especially during a violent crime, I feel it should be WAY more because you’re poisoning the public trust by taking advantage of it.

The reservoir area is still Brandon, just not inside the city limit.

11:03 and 11:12 must be new to the area.

The post office in Flowood on Lakeland is actually Brandon. Got it! That's the reason Castlewoods, Kroger, etc., are in Brandon. Doesn't make sense except Post Office hasn't kept up.

Dang, I'm gonna write a letter and see if we can get a Whole Foods in Rankin County. This is getting out of hand. It's methed up.

11:18. I would suggest you ditch the tin foil hat and invest in some quality firearms.......

So any area outside the city limits of Jackson is still Jackson? Do we need to teach some basic civics on this site?

Where did the crime occur?

"will then face Rankin County District Attorney Michael Guest and our Circuit Judges"

Yeah. Thats how its supposed to work. Cops, Prosecutors AND judges against a defendant. Might as well throw the court reporter in there too.

"Thug" is far too flattering a word for that creature. One can only hope that it has a fatal accident while in custody.

So the Flowood post office is actually Brandon? Does that mean that Flowood is really in Brandon? Dang, I'm confused. Did the Brandon Police arrest the thug? Do the Brandon police have jurisdiction at the reservoir? Do the people living in Flowood and Reservoir area get to vote in Brandon elections?

The Flowood Post Office is across Airport Rd from the Flowood PD. That's 39232.
The Brandon Reservoir Post Office is down Lakeland at Grants Ferry. That's 39047.
The areas they serve have nothing to do with jurisdiction as much of the 39047 zip is within the Flowood city limits.

Anonymous said...

It's a zip code issue. The P.O. Never updated the zip codes like they were supposed to, so those vast amounts of land in Rankin County still have a Brandon zip- code. Thus, for reference purposes, everyone just calls the area 'Brandon' even though it's not in the city limits of Brandon.

You live where your mailing address says you live.

i wonder what the other side of the story is. A lot of the items are believed to be stolen but he could really just have a bunch of things at his house. I'm imterested to see how this plays out.

White THUGS are among us! Hide your jewels, lock your doors and pray for deliverance!

Please note, Mapp's failure to be a productive, law abiding, tax paying citizen is not a reflection of a single parent home, socioeconomic status, inadequate schools, lack of personal responsibility, entitlements or inept community and judicial systems.😂

His mama spoke to Megyn Kelly at FOX and said "My son ain't going to kidnap somebody! Now, I'm not saying that he wouldn't rob nobody, but I know he won't kidnap somebody!"

Beau Mapp is a PSYCHO. This is not the first time he has done something like this. He is also a big guy, muscle big. Scares me to think what all he could do to someone.

Anonymous said...

Is Beau Mapp any relation to Justin Mapp, the famous soccer player?

Anonymous said...

Beau is a big guy? Muscles? Really? Makes me question if you're talking about the real Beau Mapp

Prayers go out to all of you on this little blog. BEAU MAPP has a family that loves him. He has two children and one on the way that are all suffering from this and comments such as the ones above with no validity are not doing anything but hurting his family. Please if any of you knew Beau you would know he's not been arrested or even detained for any crime since he was a child. He is not a big muscle guy and to be scared of him is is silly. Beau was a funny guy, an amazing father, a great friend, and has a huge heart. He made a mistake and he is doing the right thing by cooperating with police so please instead of judging and speculating please pray for him and his family bc this is a tough time for them all.

That is my cousin and on his behalf he had a good home life as a child and was not a thief during his highschool years. He is not a thug by any means. Beau Mapp was one of the coolest most loving person that you could meet. He took me and my sister in when we had no where to go out of the kindness of his heart. Not only that, but he was the one person who could make me smile after the death of my grandfather Donny Williams. You can call Beau a thug, you can call him a thief but he is far nicer person than believed. It is true that he had possession of stolen property, but the impersonating a police officer was most likely a practical joke that beau was notorious for playing.

I saw some good televised closeup footage of Mapp in court. He seems to be "white" in the same way that George Zimmerman is "white".

In my opinion, Mapp cannot legitimately be used as an example of a 'White Criminal'.

Anonymous said...

Beau Mapp is not an innocent person, I don't care if you are his family. THERE IS VIDEO OF HI'M pretending to be a LEO and harming someone else.. I didn't fall off the turnip truck yesterday! He is NOT the person you are explaining in your comments. Meth will change anyone. But the ones commenting above need a reality check. He admitted to doing it... hello come back down to earth and face the facts he is a THUG!!!!!!! and a DANGER to EVERYONE!!! He should be locked up for as long as possible for pretending to be a LEO most people don't take that lightly. They are hero's.. he is the FARTHEST thing from a hero possible...

Anonymous said...

To reply to the last comment shown. I am his family and you better watch what you say because I can track that little anonymous statement you made back to the IP address from that little smartphone your using. He isn't a thug but I am and if you think what he did was bad, make another post like that and let's see what happens to you. And if you think he's a danger to everyone you are far from right. If you are not his family or don't know him personally I don't suggest you be making little petty post such as the previous one. Understood? Good. To the rest of society, have a blessed and glorious day.

My response to this: you better be finding a safe place to hide because I'll be working on finding you:)

You should be more careful about what you post.

Drugs... That is all I can say. Beau came from a good family. He somehow became mixed up in the stripper/drug culture and took a downward spiral. This is not an excuse for what he has done as it is inexcusable. He should pay for what he has done, but I do hope that he receives counseling and treatment in prison. Perhaps he can eventually turn his life around. His children are very fortunate that his mother is an angel on Earth-she will take care of his children.

Is this thug still locked up,I hope?

BTW I love the threats from relatives who can trace electrons through the ether to find "anonymous". Very scary :-)

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.
