Belhaven carjacker arrested

JPD issued the following statement:
On Friday, October 2, 2015 at approx. 1720 hours, Jackson Police officers responded to New Stage Theater at 1100 Carlisle St. regarding a carjacking. The victim was approached by two suspects, one armed with a handgun. The suspects took a white in color Toyota Camry from the victim and fled the scene.

On Friday, October 9, 2015 at approx. 2129 hours, Jackson Police officers responded to the area of Jefferson St. near Morningside St. regarding a armed robbery of an individual. The victim was approached by a suspect armed with a handgun demanding belongings. The suspect robbed the victim for several belongings and fled the scene in a white Toyota Camry matching the description of the carjacked vehicle.

Suava Blaire
On Friday, October 9, 2015 at approx. 2245 hours, Jackson Police officers observed a white in color Toyota Camry in the 600 block of North St. The vehicle matched the description of the carjacked vehicle. Officers later observed a subject matching the description of the robbery suspect attempting to get into the vehicle. As officers approached the vehicle, the suspect positioned the vehicle towards one of the officers an attempted to run the officer over by using the vehicle as a weapon. In fear of their safety and the safety of others, officers discharged their duty weapons striking the vehicle. The suspect was able to elude the officers and later went to River Oaks Hospital for medical treatment for a gunshot wound he sustained to the foot. He was treated, released and later taken into custody. He's identified as Suava Blaire, 18 yoa. None of the officers involved were injured during this incident.

Suava Blaire has been identified in all three incidents and has been charged with Armed Carjacking, Armed Robbery of an Individual and Aggravated Assault on a Police Officer. He's been booked into the city jail awaiting an initial appearance.

The cases are still under investigation and more arrests and/or charges are still possible.

Back to the range for the officers.

This is the first I have heard or read about a recent car jacking and armed robbery in Belhaven, but really it is just more of the same. It's a miracle someone wasn't killed again like Mrs Temple.

I hope someone will follow this man's journey through the Hinds County Criminal Justice System to ensure he is not released to do more harm before trial.

I hope his footsie is ok.

What a wasted opportunity that the officers didn't blow his little thug head off.

Oh, But This Stuff Happens Everywhere said...

Why haven't we heard from the television media, print media or Jambalaya regarding these incidents (other than this arrest)?

How does this car manage to move around Jacktown for several weeks not being spotted, tag not being run?

Just reading yesterday about the new eateries in Belhaven. Go for it! These thugs know damned well that when white people go out to eat or attend plays or other functions in Belhaven and Fondren, that they have money, rings, other jewelry and car keys.

Now let's hear it from the "let's get along crowd" who lives in Jackson about how they're hated-on and mistreated and mischaracterized. Chorus in 3, 2, 1...

What do you expect out of these criminals? They have no fathers, no real men to guide them and women who claim their babies just rob houses. Have you noticed that black police on average don't use deadly force on their own race? Now that's something you need to sit back and think about. Just a shot in the foot. If he had been shooting at police from the surrounding areas, he would be dead.

We don't ever hear about the from the media. What a shame. It shows whose side they are on.

7:16 am You can't seem to get it through your thick skull that we know the risks and we don't care what you think.

We were nice enough to try to explain to you why we are willing to assume those risks.

We tried to explain that we are working to improve things and have made some progress .

We tried to explain why you are not only not helping but are hurting our efforts.

In exasperation, we tried to tell you that every time you post , you come across as a mean spirited, uninformed , poorly educated busybody who lives in a very small bubble and thinks everyone should do things their way.

But, the bottom line is you are a narrow minded. loud mouthed, troublemaking jerk. And, we'll continue to make sure everyone is clear about that.

For some strange reason, I already had a similar mental picture of this alleged perpetrator before seeing it on JJ.

"You" are anonymous and "we" are anonymous and almost everyone else here is anonymous so ...

Maybe this piece of shit is the one found dead in the holding cell this morning.

Burke said...

Well said, 8:45, all the way through. Not to discourage you, but the 7:16s will keep vomiting no matter what. It's been awhile since Joe Louis was invoked: "If they don't know, you can't tell them."

Kingfish said...

I allowed 7:38 to show what a stupid comment looks like.

I love it when people who have never been in a firefight or shot a gun in self defense critique someone who has to use a gun in self defense. It is SOOOOOO easy. Point, shoot, BOOM, he be dead. Yeah, its that easy.

That is why every firearms instructor I know from Cliff Cargill to Brad Harbour to Captain Robert Mahaffey points out in great detail how shooting skills decline a great deal in actual combat or self defense as compared to going to the range. Something about how the parasympathetic nervous system responds to pressure. They will also point out how most rounds fired in a firefight do not hit the target. It is so easy, danger strikes, get into a supported firing position, aim at the target, and then shoot after a few seconds to prepare. What? You don't have a few seconds to prepare? Sucks to be you then.

But hey, they only miss because they are black. Hello kluckker? How does it feel to wear a white sheet? Tell us how it feels.

Hey, KF, now that Johnny DeWitt is retired, I bet you could get him to tell you about the time he had an officer "unload" his service revolver toward a vehicle being driven by a fleeing suspect that was being used as a weapon. 10 rounds from the Glock 40 caliber. Zero struck the car. From less than 30 feet.

Anonymous said...

If we can arm everyone, though, enough rounds will be flying around that one is bound to hit the bad guy.

Really Kingfish?
How many firefights have you been in?
You don't know that anonymous commenter's past. He may have been in more firefights than you would think.
You "allowed" the comment to display the commenter's ignorance? Just who's skirt are you blowing smoke up?

Anonymous said...

All you Dewitt lovers, I used to hire him as security in the early 90's, My opinion of him, and your's, are drastically different.

How many firefights have you been in 6:50 PM?

Anonymous said...

Take your mouth off of Kingfish's member for just a minute (I realize that will be hard for you).
KF called out 7:38 with absolutely no knowledge of his history.
You, on the other hand, jump in post haste to try and defend KF when he has not defended his own accusations/statements.
While I do respect the fact that KF will post comments like mine, that doesn't answer the question concerning his knowledge of the previous commenter's history.
The number of firefights I've experienced is none of your business.
Get up off your knees, for just a minute, and quit defending KF when he, clearly, doesn't need your defense.

Kingfish said...

You also didn't refute a thing that I wrote or attempt to do so.

Anonymous said...

You are exactly correct. I have no knowledge of your past, just as you have none of the poster's past. You are correct in saying that there is no one that knows exactly what they will, or will not, do in a circumstance like that. Whether I am well trained in empty hand combat, well, if the opponent is armed and smart enough to stay out of my range, all the training is useless. What happens is determine by the circumstances of the moment. If I happen to be trained in armed combat, if the opponent has the upper hand in that circumstance, that determines the outcome.
All I am saying is, each and every conflict is different. What you can, or will, do is determined by what is happening in the moment.
As far as your "defenders", which I really don't think you need, they can suck it.

Here, I'll Refute It! said...

Kingfish at 2:48; while I understand your need to occasionally pander to both the police and the black community, I think you just suggested that the police are not trained or mentally prepared to shoot people. Did you really mean to step in that shit hole?

If you were trying to describe the psychological complexities involved when an ordinary citizen finds himself confronted with a shooter, fine. But you were describing men and women who strap on a firearm every day of their lives and have been periodically trained to use them with deadly force.

And while you're rattling on about the parasympathetic nervous system (something you heard about at Primos one day at breakfast and something police training deals with) you lash out calling a poster a klukker for nailing the truth of Po Po hesitancy in Jacktown.

So he went to the hospital, was treated and then released? Is it standard procedure for hospitals to treat gunshot wounds without contacting law enforcement immediately? Either way, we fine folks paid for the services provided to young Suava, and will continue to for a very long time.

Anonymous said...

Trained ass. No amount of training can really prepare you for combat. Some people learn to do it very well. Others do it half-ass. Some just don't have it in them. But that doesn't make them any less of a man.

Action happens very fast. It is pure reaction. KF is absolutely right about the loss of fine motor skills.

Handguns are only slightly better than having your #$%^ in your hand. Outside of the confines of an elevator, pistols are a poor excuse for defense. But in all fairness, you can't carry an AR or shotgun in a holster.

I spent three years in the 82nd airborne; 17 years in the 7th SF Group. And yes, I have seen a bit of combat.Luckily, I never had to use a pistol.

Please don't call me Rambo. That is pure Hollywood bullshit.

Somebody wake 8:15 a.m. up and get him/her some coffee. It has already been well reported that the accused drove himself to River Oaks in Rankin County for treatment. The River Oaks medical staff contacted authorities in Rankin County. Rankin County law enforcement contacted JPD and JPD made the arrest. The medical care was not delivered while the jackass was custodial. While it may be true that "we fine folks paid for the services," it won't be as a result of custodial medical care. It will be because the piece of $h!+ has no coverage.

I Just Can't Do It, Cap'n said...

I don't give a rat's ass who served in the 82nd. If the police are not comfortable discharging a firearm, they need to transfer to desk duty or resign and deliver the Clarion Ledger. Are we really at the point of apologizing for the inability of the police to draw-down by blaming it on their psychological discomfort? Say it with me: HORSE SHIT!

Anonymous said...

8:53 Who pissed in your cheerio's this morning? The JPD statement said, "The suspect was able to elude the officers and later went to River Oaks Hospital for medical treatment for a gunshot wound he sustained to the foot. He was treated, released and later taken into custody." Either your info is coming from another source or you're making assumptions, neither of which makes me (8:15) asleep at the wheel. Thank you for further making my point about the perp's non-custodial care. We both assume an 18 year old, armed crook probably doesn't have private health insurance, or even govt subsidized insurance for that matter.

I was carjacked in Belhaven with my 6 year old and 4 year old twins. The thing that got me was the guy took my car with both passenger side doors open and the back of the SUV popped up. Took off down state street toward UMMC and not one person called the police. A young african american, in a mercedes, driving like a bat out of hell with both passenger side doors open and the back open…and thought it peculiar enough to dial 911?

The kicker though-I called JPD once and had to call them again 15 minutes later before anyone showed up. This was on Arlington street 5 houses down from State. It still boggles my mind.

On another note, you can't ever say what you would do with a gun. If I would have had a gun it wouldn't have been any use to me unless it was on my person. The guy open the door behind me, got in the seat behind me and I never knew it. He put the gun over the console and it was then that I saw it out of my peripheral vision. No use under the seat, no use int the console, no use in the glove compartment. It would have only been of use if it was strapped around me.

It's funny to see this bickoring between all of you about guns. You will never know what you would do until you are faced with the ultimate decision. It's not just pull, aim, fire, you're dead.

It's heart wrenching, life changing and flash backs that seemingly will never go away. With children involved you have to put your fears and feeling aside so you can be their sounding board. Don't argue about this stuff….you just don't know until you are put in the situation.

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.
