Too bad he didn't consummate his suicide attempt. He had to think about his crimes before he committed them, and his victims didn't have a chance.

Look, I get it, he wasn't mentally all there. Mental health is an issue. But sometimes it's best to not seek out the cameras, and have some respect for the real victims - the ones no longer breathing and enjoying this life.

He does need help. That said, he alone chose to go off his meds. Our court system will not sentence him to death, but he needs to be confined for life in a treatment facility. If your family is truly sorry for his actions, you will publicly ask the courts to have him committed for life, for his and the publics safety. Actions speak louder than words. He's alive and you can visit and speak with him at your leisure, which is more than his 2 victims family are able to do with their murdered loved ones.

Eff You See Kay them and their pathetic protest, especially the woman holding the sign saying "Treat Zebulum Fairly Police". Here's Fair: Do to him what he did to a number of people. That's fairness, bitch!

These assholes are trying to leverage recent animosity toward police to make this guy look like a good boy and the police as villains. Mentally ill or not, Zeb's a killer and the cops did their JOBS and got that sack of sh!t off the street. The cops are the good guys and your jailbird buddy is the ENEMY. Get that through your stupid, JFP-addled brain, you idiot!

I don't feel a bit sorry for Zebulum and his murderous ass rotting in jail, and all your protests will do nothing to engender sympathy in me or anyone else who knows what your murderous brother/friend did.

You can't blame a tiger for his stripes, but you shouldn't let him out of his cage either.

Heartbreaking for ALL of the families.

Not surprising to see this featured on WLBT.

Action News Reporter said...

This news clip was cut short, because I'm sure the family later said something like "We are really saddened and we pray for the victims of our mentally challenged brother, we are so deeply sorry and ask everyone to keep the victim's family in your prayers"....

Any word on whether he legally owned/purchased that gun or not?

Anonymous said...

The only direct quote I heard was to pray. I can't argue with that. I otherwise won't get sucked into wlbt sound bite games

Anonymous said...

the murderer's sister said something like "he would not do that", reminding us of that infamous quote "my son might rob you but he wouldn't kill".

When is this farcical denial of reality going to stop?

Apparently he DID murder; apparently the other did also.

The only thing more pathetic is the sunglass clad white woman waving the sign that he be treated "fairly". Fairly? This sort of sanctimonious hypocracy is on an obama/clinton level.

Shame shame shame on WLBT for running this trash story.

White Lives Matter said...

Where are the hate crime charges? Why doesn't WLBT report the real story?

Ben Dover said...

Hopefully he will have 30 years to get the help he needs... While in prison

It is a little too late to come up with excuses for what the murderer did. The time to speak out was before he stopped taking his medication. The family should have been talking to him more and doing less protesting and hogging up the camera.

Kingfish said...

If he is convicted, he should be executed if possible under the law.

If indeed schizophrenic, so what? He will be no different than a rabid dog that must be put down as he is dangerous to society. He killed two people and tried to kill more.


Police told me the tech-9 was legally purchased.

the worst he can be sentenced to is two consecutive life sentences. legally, once you serve ten years of a life sentence, and reach age 65, you can be released by the trial judge or the current trial judge. therefore, even if a judge released him, he would still have to start the second life sentence.

his family needs meds. I was a special master. I observed over several years that families tire of dealing with these afflicted people and distance themselves allowing the mentally ill person to get off meds and create horrid situations like this one. Shame on them.

Did she say held a rally in his honor? What an insensitive thing to say after he savagely killed those two women. No, that was downright stupid. Where does WLBT find these people.

What is a "special master"?

Let's boycott WLBT. White lives matter too

Parole After Eighteen said...

2:28; Are you of the opinion that the death penalty no longer applies in Mississippi?

I saw this guy's sustah-gurl on Tee Vee. She was 'splainin' that he's a paranoid Schizophrenic. In other words. the fambly already has plans to visit him in the future cause he be too sick to face the executioner.

Take him a cake, bring him fambly photos, slip him some weed. Time marches on.

WLBT is pitiful - and so biased + they have a terrible time getting the correct video connected with the story that they are attempting to get on the AIR...mistake after mistake.

noel said...

If he is mentally ill then he can't legally buy a gun. If he lied on the forms, that's not legal

What is the Merit Health Hospital?

Anonymous said...

1. This isn't capital murder, so the death penalty is not available.

2. A special master is an attorney appointed by the Chancery Court to hear specified cases. I heard all of the petitions for commitment of the mentally ill and addicted persons in my county for several years.

"He a good boy."
"He dint do nuffins."
"He was a afleet."
"He gone to college."
"He wanna be a rapper."
"He goed to church."
"I live in Fondren and, not to brag, but I have African American neighbors (I am SO open-minded and progressive! See the Obama sticker on my Prius?) I am concerned about the police brutality I see on CNN and that this youthful African American gentleman may get beaten by all the racist police. Remember, just like all men are potential rapists, all cops are potential racist purveyors of brutality. Bernie Sanders 2016!"

Yawn.

Heard this all before. Every murderous thug has someone who pleads his case and blames someone or something else. I almost wish that white woman holding the anti-police sign (make no mistake, that was exactly what that was) had had one of her relatives brutally murdered by this worthless piece of garbage. She wouldn't be demanding that the police "Treat Zebulum Fairly", you can guaran-damn-tee that!!!

Merit Health could be CMMC, River Oaks, Crossgates, Woman's, River Region - all part of CHS now. New "branding campaign" - obviously they failed at raising public recognition and now just confuse people.

Why is that an issue? They are not mentioned on this page (I don't have time to watch the video)

Anonymous said...

branding? Confusing? followers in faith, leaders in health care, now that is confusing. Robbie Chanel is my fucking hero.

Matlock's Nemesis said...

6:13; I submit that this WAS capital murder and here's why: Capital Murder (I think) is a killing occurring during the commission of a crime. He was apparently on a killing spree,accosting at random, having killed one already and in so doing, was fleeing the scene of the first crime, possibly eluding capture and involving himself in other crimes.

Then, while still engaged in the above crimes, he killed the second lady (at Logans). So, HER death occurred while he was involved in an ongoing crime spree. CAP MURDER. That's my take and I'm stickin' to it.

I like the way you think 6:51........

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.
