Was the "victim" really a victim? (Updated)

Update: MDOC provided his history to JJ:

 He was booked in the MDOC system twice, in 1998 for sell of marijuana and possession of marijuana in Madison County. He received three years to serve and 60 months probation each count concurrently. He came back into the system  in  2003 for two counts of sell of cocaine, for which he received 10 years each and 5 years probations running concurrent. He was released from probation as of 1/18/2015
 Original post:

Kendrick Brown was a twice-convicted drug dealer who was facing a third conviction for selling drugs.  His indictments and convictions are posted below.  He was killed this morning in the parking lot of the Madison County courthouse by William B. Wells.  Mr. Wells will have an initial appearance at 10:00 tomorrow morning.  It is thought that Wells shot Brown in retaliation for the attempted murder of his mother this weekend when she was shot in Canton. 

February 1, 2015: Indicted for sale of cocaine as a habitual offender and subsequent drug offender. 

February 7, 2003: Convicted (pleaded guilty) to sale of cocaine.

January 23, 1998: Convicted of sale of marijuana less than one ounce, convicted of crime of possession of marijuana with intent to sell.

Let's hope there's a Kevlar vest on Mr. Wells in the parking lot, just in case Brown's loved ones show up.

It would be hard not to react like Wells did if someone was involved in the attempted murder of my mother as it is alleged Brown was..

But, sigh, let me get this right--this really, really bad "criminal" had a rap sheet that is what?

Having some weed in the 90s?

Doing / and selling coke in the amount that most of us who have friends that 'party' have on any given weekend?

Too bad he doesn't live in Hinds County. If so, he would be free to vote in tomorrow's election for a new DA

@ 3:59 - YOU are what's wrong with our society. Even if we can all agree that "weed" is a relatively harmless drug, the same can NOT be said for cocaine.

Further, it may come as a BIG surprise to you but.....MOST people don't "party" the way you do. MOST of us have more sense.

Regardless of ALL of the above, Weed AND coke are illegal in Mississippi so, YES....he was a criminal. And there is no telling how many families he destroyed by his "harmless" selling of cocaine.

(Idiot. smh.)

I'd vote to acquit; maybe guilty of discharging a firearm in city limits should be the charge.

Stoopid shit shoots man out of anger and gets his own ass sent to prison for forty years. How's that for anger? Glad this didn't happen on Saturday when the venue was crowded with absentee voters, like me.

Meanwhile, Michael Guest shows up in the background like Sharpton at a flag rally.

3.59 here.


No, I am not. Your emotional arguments that lead to us taxpayers paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for a guy who sold weed and did a little bit of coke is the problem.

You could read into the success of decriminalization programs all throughout Europe or read about the actual harm in comparison to so many everyday things of these so called dangerous drugs.

The people who are going to do drugs are going to do them. Let them do it, let's tax it, and then educate people on how to do it as responsible as possible.

Seriously? This white kid in South Carolina was killed over 3.5 grams of weed?

Kingfish can you do a post about this? I would be curious what all of our colorful commenter personalities would have to say about this.

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.
