Our friends, Desmond Brown and crew, are back up and running in Northeast Jackson after they were chased out of their convenience store on Northside Drive and attempted to open a store downtown. WLBT reported on a recent protest in front of the gas station on 714 Adkins Boulevard:
These are the same guys that ran a convenience store on Northside Drive. The store was busted over a year ago for (allegedly) opium, stolen firearms, and stolen goods. A JPD officer was shot earlier this year. The city of Jackson and District Attorney went to court to get the store declared as a nuisance. They were run out of that store and popped up downtown on Capital Street trying to open either another store or a restaurant. That effort stalled soooo.............. Desmond and his posse invaded Adkins Boulevard.
Their landlord is apparently none other than former Ward 1 Councilman Dent Anglin. Hinds County tax records show Panther Properties, LLC owns the property.
The Secretary of State website states that Mr. Anglin is the owner of Purple Panther, LLC:
Kingfish note: That was the news, now for the opinion. Thank you, Mr. Anglin for importing this trash into Northeast Jackson. Thank you for backstabbing those of us who actually care about Northeast Jackson.
