Rankin deputies out in force for Halloween, Jackson changes to Friday night.

 Update: Sheriff Bailey sent an updated list of neighborhoods.

The City of Jackson and Rankin County Sheriff issued the following press releases:

The City of Jackson will observe Halloween on Friday, Oct. 30, as inclement weather is expected on Saturday, Oct. 31.

Also, the city's annual Trunk or Treat will be held at the Police Training Academy, located at 3000 Saint Charles St., on Thursday, Oct. 29, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.  There is a $1 entrance fee.

 Rankin Sheriff Plans Extra Patrols for Halloween

The Rankin County Sheriff’s Office will have additional deputies out Friday, Oct. 30th and Saturday, Oct. 31st  for Halloween. We understand there is chance of rain Saturday night so a number of deputies will be patrolling subdivisions and county roads for those participating in Trick-or-Treating Friday night. Safety of our children is a number one concern so these deputies will be out with their blue lights on slowing vehicles down. We ask the public to report any reckless drivers or safety concerns immediately to the sheriff’s office at 601-825-1480. This week the sheriff’s office with the assistance of the MS Attorney General’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service has conducted a compliance check on every sex offender living in the county. Residents who are concerned about sex offenders living in their area are asked to look at the MS Department of Public Safety Sex Offender Web Site.  

Kingfish note: Nice to see Sheriff Bailey doing this.  He takes that night very seriously as the Rankin County SO has deployed extra patrols, mobile and stationary, in neighborhoods.  Brandon and some other suburban cities do this as well.  Meanwhile, if you live in Fondren, get ready for the invasion of the buses.

Out with their blue ligts on? You mean the ones that blind me every time I have to pass them at night?

These things need dimmer switches. I nearly ran over a highway patrolman despite driving only 5-10 mph approaching a roadblock because I just couldn't see.

Could someone please elaborate on "Invasion of the Buses"???

Anonymous said...

People from poorer neighborhoods pile their kids into vans and take them to better off neighborhoods for candy.

Invasion of the buses, vans, Electra 225s, jacked up Malibus, and numerous vehicles with 24" rims and giant subwoofers.

Many of the people described by 3:00 are merely scouting for burglaries, and using trick or treating as an excuse to scope out the houses up close.

3:00- Unfortunately, that's why we keep our lights out at dark. The neighborhood kids are treated to homemade cupcakes and cookies though, right after school (off the bus), costumed or not. Nobody else is offered a treat.

The most likely way children are killed or injured on Halloween is by getting hit by a car.
That's always been the case.
" Stranger danger" has not increased per capita. Crime per capita in general has not increased. There are simply 3 times more people than in the 50's.
We have become a neurotic society that in knee jerk fashion over-reacts to everything thanks to 24/7 media.
Once upon a time, you didn't know what happened on Halloween in Podunk,NJ! Hell, you probably didn't know what happened in Laurel unless you had an old maid aunt living there!

4:43- What if a poor kid from another part of Jackson disguises himself as a neighborhood kid, somehow sneaks onto one of the local school buses, and then tries to get a homemade cupcake from you as he gets off the bus? It's something you should think about. I would consider not giving out any cookies, cupcakes, Rice Krispies treats, Nanaimo bars or other baked goods to ANYONE because of this possibility.

I love it when there's inclement weather on Halloween night! Anything to keep it from happening. We turn our lights out completely and draw the blinds. It's insanity. An open invitation for outsiders to cruise the neighborhood and steal or scope your shit. Stay the hell away from my house. Local children under six can trick or treat prior to dark.

When these stupid police departments sit around deciding when to have Halloween, they do all of us a disservice.

4:43- The idea is to avoid the invasion of the bus people and avoid a parent such as yourself who feels they're entitled.

Lights Out said...

Like everything that involves packs of roaming, feral teens, Halloween, as an annual fun event for children has gone to shit.

I felt much safer with the patrols in my subdivision and thank Rankin County for putting forth the effort. Yes, our traditional Halloween has gone to hey in a handbasket, so I appreciate the extra protection!!

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!!!
