The camera can work both ways

A young woman claimed she was tased by Flowood police earlier this week during a traffic stop. WAPT reported:



Some observations:

*She repeatedly refused to give her license to the police.  The police asked her over a dozen  times for her license and she told them she would not give to them each time.
*She refused to get out of her car when asked to do so.
*She told police she was "fixing to" pull off. Um, the cop has his hands on the window.  He is standing right by the window.  She told him she was driving away.  Car could potentially be a weapon at that point and she is now fleeing the police.  Which is better? Chasing her through traffic or stopping her before she drives off?
*Other police officers (not connected with Flowood PD or Rankin SO) told JJ they thought the young girl tried to set up the police as she kept re-setting the camera angle.
*She raised the window up on the police. 

There is dashcam video and it will eventually come out in court.

Ridiculous. She should be in jail. Welcome to Flowood indeed.

This is the logical next step of the BLACK LIVES MATTER scam: People like Shameequiadarious here think they don't have to obey cops.

And that's what BLM wants. Zero accountability for criminal conduct, since all police are racist, and murdering blacks by the bushel.

Go talk to Kenny Stokes. He'll make you feel empowered. In the mean time, "Welcome" to the "burbs"! You're lucky our officers are well trained, or you could've ended up lookin like swiss cheese. Sweetheart, You-Are-Jackson!

She should have complied with the cop, but Flowood PD is pretty zealous about writing traffic tickets which is a BIG source of revenue for the city.

11:20- imagine that, Flowood can keep their crime rate low AND still write tickets for the city revenue. That's was you call multi-tasking. Keep up the good work Flowood!

Driving is a privilege, not a right. This dumb b*tch thinks it's all about her, not about the safety of the general public or the police.

I am NO fan of the FPD, but this young person appears to be nothing but a rabble rouser. Just wants to be on TV and have a pay-day.

I'd love to know where she works so I can be sure not to shop there.

THIS is Obama's America.

It seems Flowood has one of, if not, the strongest tax-base in the metro area. While revenue from citations is an added bonus to the city coffers and other government programs (through various assessments) that revenue is a small fraction of what keeps that government running. Diligent police traffic law enforcement is a front line defense to subduing more serious crime while making the motoring public safer at the same time.

First, a police department with a reputation with a serious traffic enforcement reputation is should be somewhat of a deterrent to would be criminals and secondly, police often find wanted persons, evidence of other crime and impaired drivers during routine traffic stops.

I realize, myself included, folks don't like being stopped much less ticketed, but I do know its all part of the bigger picture. Towns like Flowood, Pearl, Byram and Clinton all have a reputation for issuing tickets, and they all have a relatively low crime rate.

Proactive policing is a benefit to the community..... Thanks Officer!

If you don't want to get in trouble in Flowood all you have to do is obey the law. If you do that you will not have a problem and will find the Flowood police to be nice, friendly people. If, however, you choose to break the law and show your stupidity, you will find them to be very efficient in doing their job. If you have issues with the way the law is enforced in Rankin County or any of the municipalities located therein, it would be in your best interests to stay over on the west side of the Pearl river.
Thank you Flowood P.D. for a job well done.

The Flowood Police do their jobs in a very efficient manner. A couple of months ago I was traveling Lakeland Drive in the Dogwood area. It had started to rain and my vehicle starting sputtering and trying to go dead. I was able to turn into one of the exits by the shops and immediately a Flowood Policeman came to my aid. He was able to push my vehicle out of the path of traffic and stay long enough with me until I called someone and to make sure that I was safe. This young woman, who this article is referring is nothing but a trouble maker. I saw her on the news and it doesn't take a genius to see that she was trying to cause as much trouble as possible. They should keep her little smart mouth in jail for a long time!

Great job Flowood Police Department

They could do a better job coordinating with the RCSO. Or maybe it is the other way around?

11:10, I went to Prep a long time ago. Buddy of mine gets in a wreck senior year and the person who pulled out in front of him starts insisting to the cop that he was doing "at least 80". Cop says son, were you speeding? He replied "Officer, I've been going to Jackson Prep for almost six years. Do you think I would drive 80 in Flowood?" Response: "He's got a point."

I had a few run-ins with the Flowood PD in my younger days over mild traffic offenses and possession of substances now legal in a few states. They don't give a flying F about the 4th amendment, and I was angry at them for a long time. But as I've gotten older and become more aware of certain issues, my anger has lessened. I still think they routinely violate the constitution, but I can see their point of view now; and I appreciate the complexity of the Jackson metro situation and their desire to maintain a certain standard for Flowood. As for this girl, despite what she may have heard, there are orders from police officers the law requires you to follow. If you are innocent of the alleged infraction, the courtroom is where you make that argument.

And this is why I love living in Flowood. They keep morons out.

Flowood PD can be awful. When we moved to the area, they stopped my husband every single night when he was on his way home from work. Not once a week. Not every few days, but every single night. And that is not hyperbole. They never cited him. Pulled him over. Asked for his license and registration and let him go. This went on for nearly a month. He finally told an officer they either needed to cite him for something OR stop with the B.S. stops or he would contact an attorney. I don't think he's been pulled over since.

Sure, people should comply and give their paperwork to an officer and move on. But officers should also know that a lot of folks are not going to be nice and polite when pulled over and they should be properly trained to handle that. Calling someone a bitch because you don't like the way they respond to being pulled over is inexcusable.

12:50- Maybe hubby has a record that you don't know about and they are just letting him know they're aware he's around. Maybe he's got friends that are under investigation (birds of a feather fly together). They run plates and record checks regularly and don't stop everyone. They do keep the morons out and they make it hard for blue collar crime to take root. The white collar crime is taken care by indictments.

Anonymous said...

@ 10:33 PM Nice try, but no. But what an asinine assumption on your part. And I've lived in Mississippi long enough to know that if keeping morons out is a responsibility of law enforcement, they've failed. Miserably.

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.
