Hinds County Circuit Judge Jeff Weill testified in the trial of Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith today. He was called as a witness by Mr. Smith. Oddly enough, Smith's attorney, Jim Waide, classified him as a hostile witness during his testimony. The complete video of Judge Weill's testimony is posted below. You can read JJ's written coverage of his testimony on the Twitter feed.

A woman goes nuts when she sees some Trump yard signs in September in this Liveleak video. A police officer tries to reason with her but she is having none of it and proceeds to go even more nuts. She doesn't get arrested but does deliver some entertainment.
A Florida finance company sued Christopher Butler, Mega Mattress, and Jay Samander in U.S. District Court in August for allegedly defrauding the company. The Attorney General is currently prosecuting Butler in Hinds County for fraud charges related to the same allegedly fraudulent transactions. The lawsuit claims the defendants defrauded the lender of over $400,000. Mega Mattress is owned by Elias Dabit.

The owner of Skybox Daquiri Bar & Bistro in Ridgewood Court has ruffled a few feathers on social media recently. Ray Kersh posted a twelve-minute video on Facebook that showed him pointing a gun at the camera, bragging about donations, and defending his establishment against those who trash it on social media. Needless to say, the video has garnered a considerable amount of attention.
It appears law enforcement in Jackson will be dragged through the mud yet again. The former Hinds County Chief Deputy sued Sheriff Victor Mason for sex discrimination, race discrimination, and sexual harassment yesterday in U.S. District Court. The complaint contains quite a few lurid allegations as former Chief Deputy Cheryl Matory accused Sheriff Mason of channeling his inner Bill Clinton by trying to use her to arrange sexual encounters with another employee. The complaint is posted below. Ms. Matory is represented by attorney Lisa Ross.

Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith repeatedly refers to the Harvey Williams v. State of Mississippi (2014) case as he battles Attorney General Jim Hood. Mr. Smith claims the case prevents the Attorney General from prosecuting a case in Hinds County without the consent of the District Attorney and waves it as a flaming sword whenever the subject of Christopher Butler arises. However, what exactly is the holding of Williams? JJ decided to present the case and let the good readers decide for themselves.
Uncle Toms, N*****s, drugs, $100,000, and witness protection screens. Gang-banger's trial? Nope. These features were the order of the day yesterday in the trial of Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith. The D.A. is fighting a three-count indictment that accuses him of illegally helping criminal defendants. Yesterday saw the testimony of Mr. Smith's attorney, Jim Waide, Christopher Butler's girlfriend, two MBN agents, and Assistant Attorney General Patrick Beasley.
The Clarion-Ledger's Anna Wolfe and Jackson Free Press's Timothy Summers have provided the bulk of the coverage since the first day and yesterday was no exception. Their live tweets from the courtroom report the courtroom events as they happen. Ms. Wolfe reported this morning:
So, is this Alabama football team the best in college football history?
Seems a perfectly reasonable question at this point. Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight statistics-based website, says this year's version of Nick Saban's Crimson Tide machine has become the best college football team ever, narrowly surpassing the 1995 Nebraska Cornhuskers. As with all else it does, the website uses a thorough statistical analysis to come to that conclusion.

Chris Epps did not get a Get Out of Jail Free card. U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate refused to release the former MDOC Commissioner from jail Friday.

Off from work today and looking for something different to watch? JJ stumbled across this little gem on Youtube. There is a channel dedicated to telling the story of The Great War but in a slightly different fashion. Indy Neidell provides a weekly video that covers the Great War as it unfolded that each week. Lectures, newspaper articles, videos, and photographs are used to give viewers a similar experience to what you would see if you lived one hundred years ago. This is a highly enjoyable way of learning history. Perfect for that brand new Ipad or smart tv you got for Christmas.

It's a Wonderful Life was a catharsis of sorts for Jimmy Stewart. People forget that he was a bomber pilot in World War II and rose to the rank of Brigadier General.

Merry Christmas state employees. The budget proposed by Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, House Speaker Philip Gunn, and their budget committee colleagues targets you. If you get to keep your job, they want you to work harder and do more for no more pay. The budget is bad for your retirement (PERS) too. Oh, but you will get a tiny tax cut.

Give the good Doc some credit. Mississippi Superintendent of Education Dr. Carey Wright walked into the lion's den and delivered a stern warning to the Board of Trustees for Jackson Public Schools Tuesday night. Dr. Wright flat out told the crowded room that JPS faces the real possibility of a state takeover. A transcript of her speech is posted below. JJ strongly urges readers to read her speech if they care at all about Jackson.
An MDE audit released last summer found many schools were unsafe, lacked licensed teachers, graduated students that did not meet the requirements, and teachers that did not control their classrooms. JPS Superintendent Dr. Cedric Gray blew off the audit as he didn't even ask for a hearing to contest the audit. The first corrective action plan submitted by JPS was a joke as MDE said it was "inadequate". MDE is currently conducting a full audit of the entire district. Dr. Wright's remarks provide some of the preliminary findings for the current audit and frankly, JPS is in serious trouble. Dr. Wright's said:

Autopsies are never pretty and Politico's examination of the Hillary Clinton campaign is no exception. Politico focused on the campaign's operation in Mee-chigan. Actually, it is more accurate to write that the political website reported on the non-campaign that took place in the formerly blue state. The Michigan campaign is a good microcasm of how the national campaign operated. A Republican will read this with much glee while a Democrat will read this while resisting the urge to start throwing things at the wall. It is almost a case study in self-inflicted wounds. However, it is a pretty sober analysis and worth reading. Excerpts are published below with some commentary by yours truly.
The District Attorney's relationship with Too Sweet apparently went sour. Robert "Too Sweet" Henderson told the FBI that he paid bribes "directly" to Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith. Too Sweet's testimony was recently submitted by the Attorney General in its prosecution against the D.A. A Hinds County grand jury indicted Smith in September for three counts of improperly helping defendants.

It's that time of year. Vote in the Hottest Reporter Poll. Pretend you live in Ward 3. Vote early and often. No qualifications or ID are
required to vote here. Seriously, all of these reporters are underpaid
and overworked. They work long hours, take alot of abuse from those
they cover, especially from politicians. Most of them are fresh out of
school, scrapping and learning their trade, hoping they can improve
enough to move on to a bigger market. It's a tough job and if anything,
they are under appreciated. They get hate mail, cussed out by politicians, and go to areas that most people would avoid all while doing it with a smile. All images were culled from their employer's websites, Google images,
and public Facebook pages. Oh, and be nice in the comments. That
includes Johnny Weir.
Note: Two reporters were accidentally omitted so the poll was reset with their names included.
Cecil McCrory wants to withdraw his guilty plea in the Chris Epps scandal. McCrory pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering in 2015. McCrory worked with Chris Epps to shake down MDOC vendors for bribes and kickbacks. McCrory would act as the middleman and pay off Mr. Epps when he was MDOC Commissioner. McCrory alleged that he was innocent of the charges and poorly represented by his lawyer, Don Leland. Earlier post about motion to withdraw. McCrory also charged that then-Assistant U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst "manipulated" his case for his upcoming run for Mississippi Attorney General. McCrory is now represented by Carlos Tanner.

The Executive Director of the Mississippi Board of Medical Licensure wants to make physicians who might be tempted to sexually assault a patient think twice before they do it. Dr. John Hall proposed passing legislation that will close loopholes and toughen the criminal statutes for sexually abusive doctors. The next session of the Mississippi Legislature begins next month. Earlier post. However, some doctors on the Board do not exactly see eye to eye with Dr. Hall. The Mississippi Business Journal reported this week:

They decided to knock out the U.S. Pacific Fleet using tactics that had worked on the Royal Navy and against Russia nearly forty years earlier. The rest is the Day of Infamy. Take a moment to remember the souls of those who died that day and those who fought back. JJ took the liberty of posting videos of that fateful attack.

Here is the trailer to the second half of season 4:
The Mississippi Supreme Court remanded the capital murder conviction of Laqunn Sharod Gary back to Hinds County Circuit Court after it held that Judge Jeff Weill violated the Gary's due process. Gary confessed to a murder but then tried to challenge his confession and asked for a hearing to suppress the evidence. Judge Weill denied his motion for the hearing. However, the Court ordered Judge Weill to hold the hearing and then possibly hold a new trial if the confession is disqualified. The opinion is posted below. Judge Weill nemesis public defender Allison Kelly represented the defendant. There was no dissent.

The nutshell version of the report is that the numbers that should be getting smaller are getting larger while the numbers that should be getting larger are getting smaller.

Read the numbers for each category and weep:
Northeast Jackson hoodlum Frank Williams won't be breaking into any more houses for awhile. A Hinds County jury convicted him of four counts of house burglary.

SLRP. The retirement fund that is appropriately named by its acronym. Supplemental Legislative Retirement Fund. It's a declaration by the legislature that states our elected solons are indeed better than the rest of us. The legislature created SLRP to give themselves extra retirement pay not available to other state employees. Call it time and a half pay for doing half of the work- if that much.

The other Medicare programs are solvent and face no similar doomsday scenarios on the horizon.

For many, that’s all that mattered. If Trump delivers on any campaign promises, well, that will just be icing on the cake.
Others are expecting lots of icing. And that’s where the President-elect will be challenged. Talking and proposing are one thing. Getting results is quite another.

The club was seized and shut down with the dreaded red sign and yellow tape in October after the owners failed to pay a judgement.

Mississippi legislative leaders have announced they have hired EdBuild, a New Jersey based education consulting firm, to review the state’s public education funding formula, the Mississippi Adequate Education Program (MAEP).

Downtown Jackson Partners asked a Madison County Court Judge to hold former employee Linda Brune in contempt of court for refusing to participate in a deposition. DJP accused her of embezzling over $40,000 in a lawsuit filed nearly two years ago. Judge Will Longwitz held a hearing to determine whether he should compel her deposition on October 25 but Ms. Brune did not appear at the hearing. She instead attended the motion hearings that were held in State v. Robert Shuler Smith even though she was not subpoenaed to be there. DJP Executive Director Ben Allen is under indictment for allegedly embezzling and misusing DJP funds. DJP asked Judge Longwitz to issue a bench warrant and detain Ms. Brune until she was deposed.

Penny Corn is no longer the Grants Director at the Office of Homeland Security at the Mississippi Department of Public Safety. DPS settled a sex discrimination with Ms. Corn in April. Payroll records obtained through a public records request state that Ms. Corn's last date of employment was October 17. Multiple sources have told JJ that Ms. Corn was fired from her position. A DPS representative declined to comment and said he would not discuss personnel matters.
A St. James Episcopal Church priest left several obscene voice mails for Hinds County Circuit Judge Jeff Weill on the phone of his administrator. Ridgeland police arrested the Reverend Seth Walley on June 20 for calls that were made on April 15. The case is still under investigation. Reverend Walley is the Associate Rector at the Fondren church. The calls were apparently made shortly after Judge Weill found a public defender in contempt of court and incarcerated him. The police report and recording are posted below. Here is a transcript of the calls.

The hoodlum who carjacked the wife of Merrida Coxwell was indicted for the crime last month. A Hinds County grand jury indicted John Gregory Rollins for carjacking Tara Coxwell at the Car Care Clinic on I-55 North on March 8. The indictment also seeks to classify him as a habitual offender. Rollins is a participant in the Hinds County Catch & Release Program:

Legislative leaders brought in an outside expert from the Tax Foundation to push the theory that Mississippi needs to make its business taxes more competitive. She argues lower business taxes, offset by higher user fees, property taxes and expanded sales taxes, will make Mississippi more competitive for business and jobs.
While this approach may make the state more business tax competitive, there is no evidence it will result in more business growth and jobs. Taxes are just one of the many factors businesses consider when looking to expand or open new locations. Market size, wealth, competition and growth prospects; workforce size, skills, wage levels, and future availability; transportation and utilities access and costs; quality of schools and other lifestyle amenities; incentives; and other factors are equally if not more important than business taxes.

Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith asked for everything, including the kitchen sink and all indoor plumbing, from Ben Allen, his lawyer, Kamikaze, Downtown Jackson Partners, and other lawyers in a bizarre motion for discovery that was filed on October 20 in State v. Benjamin Allen, III. A grand jury indicted the DJP Executive Director in March for ten counts of fraud and embezzlement. The grand jury also indicted two employees of the State Auditor for allegedly obstructing the investigation of Mr. Allen. However, Mr. Allen and his lawyer, Merrida Coxwell, fired right back at the District Attorney in a response that was filed Monday.

The beautiful people have spoken. Y'all Politics rolled out its list of the 50 most influential people in Mississippi politics. They had their fun. Now it's time for JJ to have its fun as well. Here is JJ's list of the top 50. Some are beautiful, some are not.
The NHTSA offers grants to law enforcement agencies for DUI enforcement. The grant pays troopers to work DUI enforcement on their off days. Such an arrangement has several benefits. The troopers have an opportunity to earn more money. The Mississippi Highway Patrol gets to put more troopers in the field to arrest drunk drivers at no extra cost.

The Mississippi Department of refuses to answer whether Penny Corn is still employed at the agency. Ms. Corn served as the Grants Director at the Office of Homeland Security at DPS. DPS settled a sex discrimination with Ms. Corn for $75,000 in April. Numerous sources at DPS informed JJ that Ms. Corn was terminated last week. JJ submitted the following public records request to Communications Director Warren Strain last week:
The Sanderson Farms Championship, Mississippi's stop on the PGA Tour, began in Hattiesburg 48 years ago as the Magnolia State Classic.
A man was shot and then beaten at a convenience store on McDowell Road Monday. The video posted below shows two men approaching another man standing outside of the store. Another man gets out of his car, walks up to the victim, and then shoots him several times. The trio of thugs then chase down the victim and begin to kick him while he is on the ground. JPD is looking for the suspects.

The Clarion-Ledger laid off three reporters and three editors today. The identities are not known.
Update (10/26/2016): Here is the list: Sherry Lucas, Mollie Bryant, David Bean, Daniel Pauling, Ben Kelly, and Ralph Baldwin. Not who I would've cut but that is just me. ;-) Best wishes to these guys and hope they find something worthy of their talents and experience.
Obamacare and Mississippi Power’s Kemper County Lignite Plant are a lot alike. Both are big expensive over-hyped complicated unworkable government experiments. Both are destructive. The Chicago Tribune (an unlikely critic) recently wrote this about Obamacare: “… it flunked Economics 101 and Human Nature 101.” It explains why and concludes with: “The next President and Congress either reckon with Obamacare’s failures or … wait for the thud.”
Note: The transcript of the May recording between Ivon Johnson and the D.A. is posted below. There is a whole bunch of shucking the corn but nothing really substantive in it although the D.A. gripes a bit about Judge Weill.
Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith subpoenaed Circuit Judge Jeff Weill's staff attorney to appear at a hearing scheduled to take place this morning in State v. Robert Shuler Smith. However, Kate Steiner filed a motion to quash the subpoena yesterday. Special Circuit Judge Larry Roberts will preside over the hearing today.

Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber responded to a sexual harassment lawsuit with both barrels blazing today. Mayor Yarber answered Kimberly Bracey's federal complaint and then filed a counterclaim against her for defamation. Mrs. Bracey was Mayor Yarber's executive assistant and is married to Santore Bracey.
Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith is trying to keep a transcripts where he repeatedly uses the "N" word out of court. Mr. Smith included several transcripts of recordings between him and former Assistant District Attorney Ivon Johnson in a motion to exclude tapes and transcripts that he filed last week. A grand jury indicted the District Attorney last month for three counts of improperly helping criminal defendants. However, the A.G. accused the D.A. of grandstanding with the transcripts.

And there arose to the north of Eden a tribe called the Hotty-Toddys, who were also called metros. And the Hotty-Toddys were very displeasing; they didst place centerpieces on their banquet tables, and didst exalt themselves much. And they didst glorify the southern kingdom of the past.
Where is your safe place? Do you have one? Should you have one?
These questions popped up as I read a story in The Commercial Dispatch. While the story was about universities providing emotionally safe places for students, it made me wonder about safe places for people of all ages in our communities.

Today is a big day for education in Mississippi. The Mississippi Department of Education released the 2016 school ratings this morning.

Meet the new No-Nothings. Reason magazine reported on a serious discussion at a South African university that attacked the mere existence of science. Not even the law of gravity was sacred. The magazine reported:
Pogo Possum, the anti-hero of Okefenokee Swamp made famous through the satire of cartoonist Walt Kelly, once said, “We have met the enemy and he is us.”
How true is that with regard to the presidential candidates we picked?

Hotdiggitydamn!!! The Executive Director of PERS must have had a conniption when Bloomberg said Mississippi had the tenth worst-funded public employees retirement system in the country. She defended her administration of PERS in a column published Sunday in the Clarion-Ledger. The Kingfish posted her column below with some additional color commentary by yours truly. Ms. Robertson wrote:
Young Stephen Turner got a dose of Madison County justice last week. Circuit Judge Bill Chapman sentenced him to fifteen years in prison but suspended ten years after Turner pleaded guilty to house burglary. Turner will probably be released after he serves 2 1/2 years of his sentence. Turner has been a very busy little criminal since he turned 18 years old.

Don't look now because law enforcement might be looking out for you. Several Jackson metro area police departments are combining their efforts to obtain a grant to fund license plate recognition cameras. The agenda for the next week's meeting of the PRVWSD Law Enforcement, Asset Protection, and Emergency Management Committee states:
The Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce awarded a three year contract to operate a restaurant at the Farmer's Market on the downtown fairgrounds in 2014 to Baha, LLC. The Farmer's Table restaurant is operated by the daughter of Jackson Ward 7 Councilwoman Margaret Barrett-Simon. The Farmer's Table is in Ms. Barrett-Simon's ward.

The Chicago Cubs, the best team in baseball this regular season, famously have not won a World Series championship since 1908 and have not played in a World Series since 1945.
The Cubs have had so many splendid teams off and on during that drought, observers have tried to come up with a reasonable explanation. And, since there is none, many have blamed it on the Curse of the Billy Goat.

Embattled Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith asked Special Circuit Judge Larry Roberts to dismiss his indictment. A Hinds County grand jury indicted Mr. Smith in September for three counts of improperly helping criminal defendants. Mr. Smith filed a motion to quash and dismiss the indictment today. Attorney General Jim Hood is prosecuting the indictment.
Bright lights and the smell of "Fair Food" draw thousands to the Mississippi State Fair every year. However, reporter Mollie Bryant dared ask a question that is seldom answered in this fair state: Does the fair actually make money for the government?" The Fair Commission leases the fairgrounds, provides security, and promotes the fair but does the Commission actually earn a profit from the fair? Ms. Bryant reported in the Clarion-Ledger:

If what Mississippi politicians – precisely the Legislature and then-Gov. Kirk Fordice – had agreed to in 1999 had come to fruition, the state would now have a health care trust fund of an estimated $4.79 billion with $232.6 million available to spend this year,” wrote political reporter Bobby Harrison in the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal. Alas, he said, “as of today, the state has no health care trust fund. The Legislature has spent all the funds that would have gone into the trust fund.”

The Jackson 1% Sales Tax Commission attempted to meet Wednesday. The word attempted is use because "project manager" IMS Engineers completely botched the report to the commission. Rarely has JJ witnessed such a display of incompetence at a meeting of any board or commission that didn't involve Kenneth Stokes.

JJ found this old recording of Waylon Jennings performing in Jackson, Mississippi. However, this performance was something that the car dealers, Leadco, and even Miskelly's couldn't top. Watasha played at Mack's Trailer Sales on Ellis Avenue as part of a promotion that was broadcast live on WJQS in 1968. Enjoy.
The Hinds County criminal justice system smiled on Woodrez Davis. Davis is a career criminal who was the subject of a heated argument that took place face to face between Clinton Mayor Phil Fisher and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith. Mayor Fisher asked the District Attorney to prosecute Davis as a habitual offender since he has nine felony convictions. Unfortunately for the Clinton Mayor, such was not to be as Hinds County Circuit Judge Bill Gowan approved a plea deal that dropped the habitual offender classification and only gives Davis a short time in prison.

A recent Attorney General opinion makes it harder to hold public officials accountable when they tried to avoid the confirmation process. One problem in Mississippi government is the use of interim appointments. Mayors have repeatedly abused this practice when they fear a crony can't get confirmed. Checks and balances are ignored while city councils and boards of aldermen have little remedy save going to court. However, a law was passed earlier this year to put a stop to this good ole boy practice.

Former State Senator and lobbyist Irb Benjamin will plead guilty to conspiracy and bribery at a hearing scheduled for October 18 in U.S. District Court. A federal grand jury indicted Mr. Benjamin on August 18, 2015 for conspiracy and bribery. Benjamin obtained MDOC contracts through his company Mississippi Correctional Management. Benjamin also obtained contracts for other companies by acting as a consultant. He would allegedly split the consulting fee with then-MDOC Commissioner Chris Epps. The first page of the indictment below provides the plot of the scheme hatched by the Commissioner and the Jack Gordon protege. He is represented by "Plea Bargain" Joe Holloman.
JJ broke the story in November 2014 that Mr. Benjamin was involved in the Chris Epps scandal:
The Jackson Zoo rolled out a new master plan that proposes a major facelift for the Jackson attraction.

Social media is abuzz after this Instagram video was posted that showed a student being thrown out of the Ole Miss game Saturday. He is carrying a Mississippi state flag.

,or Heckler does good. American fan David Johnson was giving some grief to Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland and Andy Sullivan of England at a Ryder Cup practice session yesterday. The two golfers each missed a twelve-putt putt with a tricky downward slope six times in a row. The North Dakotan couldn't help himself and yelled "I could've made that". So.... British Open champ Henrick Stenson pulled him out of the crowd and told him to go make the shot. Just to make sure Johnson didn't suffer from a lack of pressure, Justin Rose placed a $100 bill on the ground right in front of the ball. See what happens next:
A Hinds County grand jury indicted young Steve Turner on September 15 for auto burglary, house burglary, and auto theft. This is not Turner's first or second scrape with the law, as he does nothing but rob and steal whenever he is free.
Young Turner was sprung from juvie when he turned 18 on December 2, 2015. JPD arrested him on December 21 for house burglary and possessing a stolen firearm. He stayed a few weeks in jail before he posted bond and went back to his errant ways. JJ reported at the time
