Another family outing in crime

Some thieves stole several iphones from Bluephone on Old Fannin Road.  The group even used a child to help steal the phones.  Entitlement culture: I see it, I want it, I'll take it because I deserve it. The store posted the video of the crime and pictures of the crooks on its Facebook page.  It is not known if these hoodlums posted their own video on Instagram.  See below for video and pics. Please contact Bluephone if you have any information about these thieves.

I am shocked! Shocked, I say!

Any wagers as to their city of residence?

It's low when you rob someone. It's beyond low when you use children to do it.

I thought criminals from Jackson didn't steal anywhere else than Jackson. I have been told on here that that does not happen. Huh? It's like we are all in this issue together-just like everything else.

These are pretty damned clear video clips. It also appears that the male employee should have seen what was going on if he had been half-way attentive.

What are the chances the thieves will return the merchandise wanting cash and claiming they lost the receipt?

I imagine the profiling by Flowood Police of Hinds county tags will be stepped up.

Kind of surprised the cabinet was unlocked to be honest.

That "lady" in red is a drag queen.

Anytime Jacksonian's go for an "outing" this is the proven stereotype that appears, a family stealing together. And you wonder why nobody wants them as neighbors?

Kingfish said...

Now imagine you are a store owner. A young woman comes in yapping on the phone, never looks at anything, and just wanders around and then sits down. Can you see the red flags starting to arise in the store owner's mind?

Sure can. Protect your property at-all-costs. Innocent until proven guilty. Suspect, treat and assume that anyone coming in the door will steal/rob and treat them as such. Anyone who thinks otherwise is living in a dream world.

I see taxes in Flowood going up because of this RACE who comes over from Jackson and causing the city of Flowood to increase patrols! Look, a business is already struggling every day due to the economy and government regulations and now some are forced to contend with additional losses due to shop lifting. So some will say to hire security guards. Could you absorb the cost of a security guard? Can the citizens and businesses in Flowood take a raise in taxes to cover more police?

I say put a fence around Jackson and let the rats kill each other!!!

Stupid Is As Stupid Does said...

The store employee was standing maybe five feet away from both children as they rifled the case, then the adult leans over to steal. How could the employee NOT see that? Or at least be curious enough to glance over and investigate?

11:57AM: Only if the fence keeps all the rednecks from coming into Jackson.

Perhaps the store employee in the video was concerned about the safety of the others in the store and himself, should he say anything. We all know they probably had a handgun on them and I'm sure 3-4 phones are not worth a life.

Sometimes, I think the people of Mississippi deserve better than to be fiftieth out of fifty in every desirable category. Then I read threads like this one and immediately see otherwise.

1) These people are no more a reflection of black people than Daryl Dedmon is a reflection of Rankin County.

2) You do not know these people are from Jackson. The mere fact that they are black is not enough. Mississippi is almost 40% black, and some black families have inhabited Rankin County for generations.

3) Flowood's problems cannot be boiled down to black people. (looking at you, 11:57).

4) If you disdain black people so much, please vote with your feet and move out of the blackest state in the nation. North Dakota might be far enough.

5) It's 2015, please move on.

Taxes in Flowood may very well rise. Not a problem as it will keep out those who don't belong. Outsiders will always have their hundred dollar bills on pay day and will gladly spend their EBT monies and other checks in clean stores. If they don't, it's less crime to worry about. Someone mentioned that Flowood would be profiling Hinds County plates and probably other plates, too. Didn't it occur that that's what they're hired for? Plus they don't hit a foot when they shoot. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

The comment threads here are filled with trolls, hoping to elicit a response and counter-response. The next thing you know, there are 50+ comments having nothing to do with stolen iphones.

On that same note, the current year has nothing to do with stolen iphones. Maybe another subject at hand, such as "Why do people still steal in 2015?". That would be one to expound upon.

The employees were probably trained not to interfere, particularly with this large of group. Bank employees are trained to hand over the money. Not worth a life or lives. Besides, they would be out of jail in a few hours anyway and in Hinds County, nothing would happen to the perpetrators. Those saying they are from Jackson could be wrong. Criminals live everywhere, though there is a larger percentage of them in Jackson than anywhere else around here.

One thing is for sure, that was not that little boys first rodeo. A skilled accomplice. And we wonder why our schools are failing.

At least one of those girls is a tranny "escort" from ATL who advertises for hook-ups on backpage.

Observes Stupidity said...

I can't believe some of you stupid idiots are suggesting the employee knew it was going on but kept conducting business as usual because the family was large and it could be like a bank robbery in progress, so for the sake of safety, he ignored the robbery.

How do people get as damned stupid as you?

I've said for years that Rankin County is just not safe

Note to self:

Remember to lock the display cases while unattended.

Kingfish said...

I'm just glad these Rankin County thieves aren't operating in Jackson.

The tech was probably concentrating on fixing the phone he was examining. I'm sure he will lock the door from now on.

they need to stop the bleeding over into rankin county on Lakeland and coming over the Rez it's getting worse. in the past 6 months it's gotten real bad we need MUCH more police enforcement

Anonymous said...

There's nothing of value left to steal in Jackson.

Select areas in Madison & Rankin Counties are the next obvious soft targets.

Either lock & load or get used to this animal behavior.

Damned Flag!

If there are arrests from the video, hope KF will follow up as we'd all really like to see these perps arrested at the very least.

This has nothing to do with entitlement or culture. People have been stealing and doing crime as long as man has been on earth and it will continue.

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.
