Greenville shows 6 murders in 2014. They have had 14 murders through the first 9 months of 2015.

I wonder how many of the 1,593 violent crimes in Jackson were black on black? I would guess around 1,580 or so. Where's the outrage out of that community demanding that something changes with respect to those type crimes? Where are the protests?

I think I'll take my chances in Madison and Ridgeland.

I'll just continue to carry a gun.

Since these stats were self reported, I am guessing that Madison and Ridgeland stats represent actual numbers and the Jackson stats have been cooked.

Madison and Ridgeland are NOT safe. Crime is going up.

4:03 - dream on, its well understood that Madison takes creative liberty with how it classifies certain types of crime to maintain a facade of "Mayberryness."

I think that the FBI is full shit.

If crime is rising in Madison and Ridgeland now, just wait til Costco opens. You ain't seen nuttin yet

double barrel said...

I'll take my chances in Madison, too. Anytime you see an officer involved in a stop of any sort, you see at least two patrol cars on site. And you don't see any patrol cars cruising around stoppin' at hotels for coffee or chasin' skirts on the interstate. Gimme Madison any day. If you peckerheads think the books are cooked, shut your trap and cite your evidence.

If the 1593 violent crimes are against children in Jackson, 1500 were committed by whites!

Now Mattiace says Costco will increase surrounding property values. Hmmmm, where have we heard that bogus load of BS before?

@6:52, I'll clear the air - I live in Madison (the city), but auto burglary is not malicious mischief. I will submit that when a bunch of cars get broken into at a large shopping area, it looks bad for the city, but its no excuse to mislead the public. Unless its a felony stop, two units at every t-stop is a waste of resources.

As jacksonians flee their own crime and filth, they inevitably bring their crime and filth with them and ruin things for the rest of us. We should build a wall. A big one.

You should absolutely build a wall and keep all your hedonistic, licentious, perverse, and predatory pedophillic practices with people that look like you, vote as you do and partake in the same filth that you delight in. The less of you to prey upon our children the better!

So build a wall, a great big fancy one and keep your kind gated in; because truly, your type of charity begins at home behind gated and fancy walls!

When you build a wall and lock yourself in Madison, please stay there and quit coming to Jackson to shop at Whole Foods, Walkers, Bravos, and all the treasures in Fondren

I only wish a great big fancy wall was built to keep your kind out; because truly, your type of charity begins at your homes behind smelly sewer laden streets and yards and in bullet ridden neighborhoods!

Waste of Resources? said...

Anon at 7:37 who thinks having two units respond is a 'waste of resources'. Tell your bullshit to the families of all the officers killed in the past five years who were involved in simple traffic stops, responding to a domestic disturbance or just simply pumping gas.

Whole Foods, Walkers, Bravos, Fondren couldn't survive as businesses without their Madison and Rankin county customers.

10:51. I assume that was a joke. The majority of us wouldn't be caught dead in those areas. We value not only our vehicles but also our lives.

Kingfish said...

BS. The surrounding demographics support them quite nicely.

"treasures of Fondren", that makes my asshole pucker just a little. Seriously, If a bunch of hipster diners and a parade for Jeff and Sarah gets your collective liberal fucktard rocks off then so be it. Madison has a place that sells craft beer and Local is just as good if not better than the mothership.

I think this is called reporting basis. Crime is way higher in Jackson, but the cops don't respond and tons of crime never gets reported. The Madison and Rankin police are omnipresent the areas are growing, while Jackustan is shrinking.

All the apologists who flock to Fondren on Thurday nights to shop at GLO will probably refer to those of us that know the truth as "crimate change" doubters. Once again, I dare you to walk down from Fondren to Meadowbrook on State street with a fist full of Yen. Only then will your collective voices come together and truly soar.

Let's see... First and only time for us to shop at Whole Foods, was when one had opened in New Orleans ('98?). We wanted 'Real Salt' (from an ancient, mineral-rich sea source, and thus free of post-Hiroshima radioactivity). Rainbow didn't have 'Real Salt', yet. We walked into Whole Foods, where Vietnam-era Soul/Funk 'good tyme oldies' were BLASTING, and half the employees were having a singalong/pantomime while they stocked the shelves. We located that one item, and FLED. Nothing could ever induce either of us to enter that hellhole, or any other Whole Foods, ever again.

Walker's (note the apostrophe?), we went to, once, as college students. That was decades back. It was nice - but not really any better than Strawberry Cafe, where we know our cars, and our persons, will be safe. I remember a lot of 'atmosphere'. But being from Greenville, I got a lifetime's worth of reverse snobbery 'atmosphere' at 'Doe's Eat Place' (Actually, listening to my alcoholic Ole Miss/Sewanee Fratrat/Suzy LL-Bean-clad relatives' collections of John Prine and Johnny Cash, on trips to and from Doe's Eat Place, was enough reverse snobbery for several lifetimes.)

Bravo! (Notice the exclamation point? That's how it appears on their logo, and in their articles of incorporation. It's not Bravo's, and it's certainly not Bravos.) is a great restaurant. We recommend it frequently. But we haven't been there in years. We love the place, but just never think about actually going, anymore.

As for the "treasures" of Fondren, we only go to Rainbow. The vitamins/supplements there are from trustworthy American manufacturers. And we buy their bulk whole grains, olive oil, and spices. But there are mail-order sources for all these things. As it is, we have trouble finding S-Class-worthy parking spots there, and do not like the crappy music (Rainbow used to play New Age, which was innocuous, if entry-level (They were still playing Andreas Vollenweider, a decade after they should have moved on to Robert Rich). But now, they play Sixties/Seventies Pothead garbage, that makes us feel like we're being held captive in a meth lab, in an algae-encrusted single-wide trailer, somewhere out in the Piney Woods.). We also do not enjoy the attitude we get from a lot of the staff. So, I can imagine us ordering from the Ozark Natural Foods Co-op, if we were forbidden entry into HOLY JACKTOWN.

We used to drive across a corner of Jackson, on the way to Flowood, where we still prefer the Courthouse 'Mother Ship' location. But we've discovered that Spillway Road allows us to totally bypass The Kingdom of Kush (except when the Reservoir's Mayfly population swells to biblical dimensions). And anyway, we have a passable gym here at the house, so our trainers and massage people could come to us, if need be.

So, truly: BUILD THE DAMN WALL!!! There's nothin' on the other side that we can't do without.

Oh, and 9:22: were you trying to SAY SOMETHING? Or were you simply stringing-together words and phrases, in ways that you found pleasing and evocative? If it's the latter, then I commend you on your poetic endeavor. (Was your little 'piece' intended as poetic commentary on the recent arrest, BY Madison PD, of the alleged predator in Bolton?) If, however, your intent was the former, and you were actually attempting to communicate, then might I recommend one of the excellent new anti-schizophrenic medications? I'm heavily invested in pharmaceuticals, and so every time a new schizoid gets put on state-of-the-art meds, I am "blessed and enriched".

Anon 2:15,

When you were hittin' up Doe's back when, did Julia Reed happen to be in the car? Talk about the reverse-snobbery... nice gal and all but, man, I'd get sick of it with a quickness.

Also, was the Food Whole you went to in NOLA the original one on Esplanade, not far from Liuzza's by da Track? Back in late '01, the security guard there was gunned down at closing time during a botched robbery. The perps got inside tips from a former employee/"team member" who was cut in on the proceeds.

Finally, that's some good writing. An Andreas Vollenweider reference on JJ! That's Dennis Miller-deep. I recognize your style and can tell you've posted here previously. But you need a good handle.

Me, I'm only good at naming boats, pets, coworkers, and large women.

Unfortunately, our side of the would-be wall has lots of assholes, and apparently like 2:15, some have considerable time on their hands. Can we ship Princess back to Greenville in her S-Class? She doesn't contribute much here.

Don't come across too many large women that are not already named. And it's against the law to have a coworker with no name

All of this back and forth should really just stop. No matter what city in the Mississippi you live, let's just remember that we're still the most backward, racist state in the Union. We are on the bottom of every good list, and we're at the top of every bad list. Instead of bickering amongst ourselves (neither Jackson nor Madison is anything to brag about), we should all work together to try to improve the image of the State of Mississippi.

7:25. Have you not noticed? This "shitty blog" survives on overt racism. We that live in Jackson are trashed by those that don't. Shhhh. Blacks are in charge. Delta boys die hard. PS: I love living in Jackson. I hope you liove where you live.

Apparently, Julia Reed was never in the car. Mine was NOT one of the five Greenville families who kept limousines for schlepping the kids between The Washington School, Miss Almyra Jackson's School of Dance, and the Country Club's pool. If we'd had a Lehmann-Peterson presidential stretch Continental like the Brents', then I might not have noticed Julia's presence (had the soundproof partition been, blessedly, up). But in an ordinary little nineteen-foot-long Town Car like ours, Miss Reed would have made an indelible impression.

Both my family and hers seem to have had a continual presence in both Greenville and New Orleans, from the 1880s, until 2005 (Katrina blew the last of our New Orleans cousins up to Aspen, where they remain). And while the good end of Greenville has a road named after her forebears, an addition to the city on the WRONG side of town was built and named (after himself, with streets named after plantations he'd flipped), by my Grandfather.

But my impression is that Reeds were enjoying a period of nouveaux richesse, at a time when OUR lot in life was still to be slogging through a period of nouvelle pauvreté. I think that the Reeds were flush with towboat money, while my elders were still valiantly working to regain what had been lost during the Cotton Panic of '25.

Growing up on the "hard end of the leveraging fulcrum" warped my worldview toward the puritanical end of the pendulum's swing. Her childhood experiences seem to have skewed Miss Reed's relationship with life toward the Cavalier. It's just as well that we seem not to have met.

The Whole Foods store we experienced was, as I remember it, a bit beyond River Bend. And I DO remember it being near the tracks. Esplanade DOES die into Carrolton, which eventually dies into the railroad tracks by the river, where Uptown becomes River Bend. I remember humble houses, and a glorious stand of yellow Four-O'-Clock flowers, across the street from the grocery, along with a magnificent thicket of Tibouchina.

Thank you for the praise, Messick! But I sound, and write, like most of the people in our little 'pod' of friends from college. We were in each other's study groups, reared our children collectively, and now sit on each other's boards. We're frequently mistaken for one another, which is just as well.

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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
