A word about the D.A.'s race.

Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith won last night and won big.  This website opposed his re-election and explained why yesterday.  An ass-kicking is an ass-kicking and that is what last night was.  I can handle an ass-kicking.  However, the scrutiny of the Hinds County criminal justice system and the District Attorney will continue on this website.  The reasons for opposing his candidacy did not disappear because of some election returns. 


 A Roman general besieged a Spanish town during the second Punic War.  The commander of the city laughed and told the Romans he had more than enough provisions to hold out for ten years.  The general replied that he would be back in the eleventh year.  The town surrendered.  JJ is going to be there in the eleventh year as well. This website has backed winners and backed losers.  Robert Graham was laughing very mightily at JJ four years ago.  He doesn't laugh as much now.  The main rule in these things is don't quit.  Don't ever quit.  This website does not quit.  Let the brickbats fly. ;-)

Jacksonians obviously want and deserve the highest violent crime rate in the region. I have to pass through there for work and sometimes eat or shop there, but generally avoid it like the plague.

Smith needs to start giving a shit or he's toast in four years.

Really, 9:13? Toast in four years? hahahahaha. What a lame-ass declaration. You must be f'ing blind, or just a moron.

We're not laughing WITH you. We're laughing AT you.

I think the landslide says much about the influence of JJ, Jackson Free Press, and the Clarion Ledger, all of whom endorsed Alexander.

In the end, RSS will be DA for life. He has a mandate. It is a sad because he doesn't have a clue what he is doing.

The real loser is Hinds County.

Maybe he will be arrested or something. I was told, "I know his mother, so I voted for him." If we cannot get more cases to court, then we cannot reduce jail population. If we cannot get convictions, we cannot clean up the streets. JPD cannot do this alone. Don't even know if the perhaps new Sheriff gives a rip about Jackson. Experience seems to be bureaucratic.

One jailbreak too many for Tyrone. Purging McMillin's leadership staff seemingly en masse was a very poor decision.

Has it crossed anyone's mind that families of inmates want them to have cell phones and feel a little dope isn't gonna hurt their Baby Daddy? Of course they like the minimal sentences. Why not keep RSS for that reason. Can't wait to see if the Democrats actually elect the truck driver who didn't even vote. I can see it now, Fred Sanford and Son redecorating the Governors Mansion.

I voted in the Dem primary for the sole reason of voting against RSSmith, It is very concerning that his record, confrontation with Clinton mayor, and simple outright dumbass-edness did not get him ousted. Very irresponsible voting occurred yesterday. I have actually seen Alexander in action and he would have served well. I can't help but wonder how much longer it will take for Jackson suburbia to get a clue and get involved in positive change. I just don't understand why it is not obvious that a healthy and vibrant Jackson is much better for all of the surrounding areas

What specifically do you want "Jackson suburbia" to do beyond plying soundbites and serving up unearned platitudes?

You want "Jackson suburbia" to "get involved" in positive change? Here's an idea; Give Jackson suburbia the right to elect leadership for Jackson and then we'll talk. Otherwise, GTF outta here with that shit.

What can suburbia possibly do? Every suggestion made is considered racist or not in the best interests of the under-served, discriminated, proverty stricken residents. Heck, I'm not even allowed win a bid for work in your fair city because I'm the wrong race. You don't want me in your city workforce unless I move my family to poor schools and dangerous surroundings (which is about only for those who "don't blend in.") Your not getting my hard earned dollars until your attitudes change. Don't complain either, you make the decisions.

The people have spoken. That's not an electorate that's shrinking in size. Get real about your environment.

You must factor in the mentality of The Stokes Twins voters in Jackson and Hinds County. These are voters who don't read endorsements.........these are voters who don't read.

JJ can continue to rant and rave about the criminal justice system in Hinds County, but it will have about the same effect as a gnat trying to annoy an elephant. JJ reads political issues about as well as he reads law. Poorly.

People were not so much voting for Smith as they were against Alexander. Give us a quality candidate for DA, and we will vote for him or her, but don't just throw anybody out there and expect them to be elected. Some of us have worked with both these gentlemen, and so we just picked the devil we could live with the most.

At least Robert Smith will hire white attorneys whereas Michael Guest has still failed to hire one black attorney.

Don't think race has anything to do with it buddy boy. Experience, GPA, Board Scores, the QUALITY of the Law School AND Undergraduate School, (JSU may not cut the mustard for quality undergrad studies in pre-law for certain companies/agencies) QUALITY of references, background check and past aquaintances (they do talk "in person" with employers and neighbors)--bet you didn't know YOUR FRIENDS and family reputations and criminal history reflect on you, even after collage--- interview skills, Lie Detector results, dress, body piercings, tatoos,VERBAL skills and writing skills. They're NOT applying for a City/County Job, the Nissan line, Walmarts or McDonalds. In the "Real World" "turning your life around" isn't good enough for many high powered jobs. That doesn't mean they can't have a viable career, they just don't have what it takes for a certain company or Agency. Quit blaming race because your acting a fool.

It may have been an ass kicking, but you got behind the right guy. I blame society.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. 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.
