A Tale of Two Faces

Uh-oh.  Remember the fella who claimed he was beaten to a pulp by the police at the Ole Miss-LSU game and then denied medical treatment while in jail? Even posted pictures of his beaten face on Facebook (pun intended).  Well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words.   WREG posted the booking photo of Chris Barnes and lets just say it appears he looks much better in the jailhouse photo than he does in the Facebook photo. Judge for yourself.

WREG also reported:

The stark difference led WREG to call the Lafayette County Sheriff’s Office. They told us Barnes had been involved in another altercation inside the jail. They wouldn’t divulge any other details. Rest of story.
Feel free to speculate in the comments on what really happened.

Interesting wardrobe change. Jacket makes sense but not the shirt, not after getting your ass beat.

It had already been reported that he was beaten in the jail after first being punched in the face by a rogue cop. It does not change the fact that the rent-a-cop slugged him in the face. Nor does it change the fact that they didn't immediately call an ambulance to take him to the hospital after his beating.

Let's accept the fact that he was brutally beaten in the jail. Let's also put the cop who hit him in the face in jail for say 10 years. Let's also hold whoever is responsible for denying him medical aid responsible.

Put the cop in jail for ten years? Are you a student at Mizzou? Do you need Mommy to dry your tears and bring some hot cocoa into your safe space every time something doesn't go your way?

There was a day when a man took a punch that he was asking for and shook it off, cop or no cop. Now in our litigious asshole world, any touching results in calls to Richard Schwartz and double cheese bagels like Col. Reb up there demanding felony jail time.

I'm a long time Ole Miss fan and I've been around my share of obnoxious, liquored-up fans (more LSU Tigers and Tuscaloosa Tree Poisoners than others) and a lot of them NEEDED a punch in the face to shut them up. You sound far more like a limp wristed undergrad crying because her safe space was invaded than a grown man who realizes a butthole (who was so drunk and obnoxious that he was still pissing off people in the hoosegow, then hid behind his wife's skirt to make it look like the cops did the real damage) sometimes needs five across the lips.

The other guys in jail knew that and taught him well.

Go pull for MSU, home of the end zone hashtag, if you're that wimpy.

It's people like him that prevent so many, myself included, from going to sporting events with larger crowds. There seems to always be at least one in the crowd that can't handle their liquor. They make a complete ass of themselves and ruin what should have been a good time for others. His behavior prior to what was shown in the video is what instigated the problem and now he (and his wife) trying to get public sympathy. Pathetic!!

Not complying with police. Hmmm. It seems like some of you on here are fine with him being drunk and yelling profanities, and then not complying with orders from security. I wager that if his skin were a bit darker these same people would scream "thug deserved it."

we all saw the video. this is the result of his own actions. the us military should investigate this person. we don't need soldiers who disrespect police

Leave it too the diverse tolerant Ole Miss fans to advocate for acceptable levels of physical violence.

I'm willing to wait for the real story. The black tee shirt is apparently the bottom layer of clothing even in the first shot. So, the layers were taken off prior to the booking photo. I don't recall ever seeing a booking photo with lets say a hoodie on. Anyway, why was he beaten in jail? Were the inmates running free to beat him? Did it occur prior to going into a cell? Did it occur in a cell? Lets get the facts first.

Let's get something clear. Right or wrong, the officer who punched him was not a 'renta cop'. He was and is a sworn officer of a municipal police department. These off duty officers are trying to make a weekend buck and will return to duty at home the next day or on Monday.

Renta cops are people in uniform, usually unarmed (but sometimes armed), who are on contract assignment from an agency to which a fee is paid.

And to the guy who earlier claimed he saw a bus-load of officers heading to Oxford, yes, those are renta-cops, not sworn officers, but people hired to work traffic, gates and parking lots. They are NOT sworn officers. They have been contracted by the athletic department and are provided by an agency that employs guards and others.

Again, this is to clarify, not to argue right or wrong of the officer that has been suspended.

Arrest That Officer!!! said...

7:14 - Tolerance: the mantra of the weak-kneed, limp-wristed, everyone's-a-snowflake left.

Sorry, but I don't want people to be tolerant of this butthole and his behavior, and I do not consider unbridled tolerance to be the chief end of civilized man like someone who has spent too much time cloistered in a northeastern ivory tower.

Sorry, cupcake, but the safe space you have staked out in your parents' bonus room is not the real world. In reality there is often a legitimate and justified need for physical violence. Just look to San Bernardino for a prime example.

God, I weep for a society where a drunk asshole gets punched and a significant portion of the population are filled with bloodlust for the LEO over the jerk who's half in the bag, spitting out obscenities in front of children. If there's another war on American soil, the enemy should start at the nation's universities. There they will find legions of sissified, "tolerant" children whose reflexive response will be HANDS UP!

Col Reb, drunk and commenting at 3am standing up for the guy who showed his ass at a ball game, made the game miserable for those around him, lied about injuries so that he could get money from, among others, his own school. The fact you cling to your moniker is not surprising.

Did he also get a haircut on the way to the hospital?

@8:24...Bulls*$t. Look closely at the pictures. The Officer in the stadium DID NOT inflict the injuries to the punk that his wife would want you to believe. She is playing the situation for sympathy and a lawsuit. I think the wife beat his ass afterward for being such a dumbass obnoxious drunk! Now she is trying to cover her tracks.

Funny how there's been no media coverage about the guy that was murdered by the Southhaven Police department. If you believe the Southhaven PD's story that he overdosed on LSD, then I have some ocean front property in Arizona for sale. Noone has ever overdosed on LSD. The guy suffocated as a result of the police officers not following protocol.

Boy Holly, bet you feel like a dumb@@&. This clown was the total problem. If he had shut his mouth he wouldn't have gotten whipped in the jail and the police wouldn't of had to remove him with force.

Looks like he should have been bobbing and weaving.

Seems like some people think when cops arrest a mean drunk they get their own cell. This isn't Mayberry. Drunks are all thrown in the same cell together. A mean drunk can sometimes be taught a lesson by other drunks that just want to sleep one off.

I was at the game and sitting not too far from this incident. This guy was out of control and needed someone in authority to get his attention. I was raised that when a security officer/police tell you to do something you say "yes sir" and not get smart with them.

Are you sure this is a land shark supporter? He doesn't even have on a red/blue bow tie.

Anonymous said...

8:24 Oh, please. If the cop had beat him up like the wife claims, you could see bruises or cuts or something in his booking picture. Too many people who were near this incident at Ole Miss now say he was very drunk and causing problems. All he had to do was cooperate with the authorities and leave the stadium with someone who could get him home safely, and probably none of this would have happened. Don't know what happened in the jail, but you can bet he was still drunk there and showing out there, too.

Oh, REALLY? No such thing? From Wikipedia's LSD page ( "... Massive doses require supportive care, which may include endotracheal intubation or respiratory support. OVERDOSE has been recorded at 1,000 to 7,000μg per 100ml & 2.1 to 26 ng per ml in serum concentrations of the tartrate salt form. High blood pressure, tachycardia (rapid heart-beat) and hyperthermia, if present, should be treated symptomatically. ..."

How bad must Col Reb must have been tormented as a child to want to incarcerate someone 10 years for punching a belligerent, drunk asshole? Must have been hell growing up in his small loafers. Ease off the little man syndrome and learn some perspective, Col Reb.

Cops have every right to put out an eye if the perp refuses any official request. He's lucking they didn't break his arms when they cuffed him. And the wife is just trailer trash. Go back to Alabama.

Billie Klubb said...

9:50; This is NOT about how YOU were raised and nobody gives a shit what you might do in this situation. It's about police training and why the officer failed to follow his training mandate.

Being drunk and unruly entitles one to be arrested and earns one a trip to the drunk tank. Being drunk doesn't suspend police protocol and give them a pass to punch-a-drunk.

The resulting severity of the blow(s) is not the issue here (for his employer to weigh). It's the fact that a trained police officer struck a guy in the face. Again, it makes not one shit how you were raised. If all police were told to 'just act according to how you were raised', we might have mayhem. Oh wait!

The clarion ledger has a picture of him smiling with a bandage on his eye. Guess that destroys the whole "denied medical coverage" she was telling us.

Looks like he lied, she blew it up, and now both are looking like petty liars.

And if you don't want to get your arse beat by the cops, don't go resisting and throwing elbows around while drunk. Typical ole miss fan

Some folks just need a good ass whipping.

Scenario one : he's been arrested before and this photo has been doctored with the date conspicuously placed to make it look like the night of the incident.

Scenario two: after being booked, he got his a$$ whooped even further in the drunk tank ( the jail/ police would still be on the hook for damages, presumably).

Scenario three: after getting out of jail, someone ( perhaps a friend) beat him and took him to the hospital in an effort win the ghetto lottery.

Pick one scenario or intertwine several to make it an NCIS night. ;-)

Never seen someone who was so deserving of an ass whipping. (Never seen the wife tho)

Ever seen NOPD at work during Mardi Gras? The have to move and move quickly to head off bigger problems, no questions asked. It may appear brutal, but it's necessary. Get drunk and elbow a cop? NOPD and UPD know what needs to be done before a situation gets out of hand.

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.

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.

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.
