The Madison PD issued the following press release:

That's it - build a moat around the damn city!

PittPanther said...

The closest maid someone in Madison could find, was from Collins?
Or was that the closest white maid they could find? You know, cause whites don't steal...

You don't get a moat. Better move to Glukstadt, there's no crime there.

Oh Horrors? A 'cleaning woman' stealing. And most of you goobs have no clue why your antiques have those little key holes and funny keys.

Difference is that when it happens in Madison, it gets action, when it happens in Jackson.....oh well, just life in the big city.

Several shootings in Jackson in the last week, no arrests. In Madison, the house down the street hired a maid without doing background checks, and Madison pd promptly made an arrest. And you idiots are still going to make jokes about Madison? Maybe we like it boring.

Y'all, don't go to Nashville, New Orleans, Myrtle Beach, Atlantic City, Memphis, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Daytona Beach, Jackson TN, Miami ,Ft. Meyers, Houston, Beaumont, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Spartanburg, or Chattanooga!
Their crimes rates are all much worse than Jackson, MS's is! And, I could keep on going! Lordy, I've not even gotten West!
Many of you go visit these cities but you tell other people not to come to Jackson because it's too dangerous!!!! Proof we are our own worst enemies!

7:37, are you using the actual number of crimes committed or the creative numbers Jackson has been putting out?

Situational Ignorance said...

So.....along comes 7:37 to contradict twenty years worth of FBI statistics. Madison was just selected as the most 'crime free city in Mississippi' but 7:37 will soon let us know it's just the opposite.

the nice thing about 9:57's comment is it requires no proof. Good thing because there is no proof or evidence to back up his claim. Welcome to the conspiracy nuts. Their arguments are circular in logic. Probably is a birther, truther, or something similar. Everyone is always lying, no facts are really facts, and if you disagree with him, you are part of the conspiracy.

The only reason he is saying that about JPD is because it is majority black.

KF. Certainly you are not beginning to question the idiots on the site that make comments that require no proof!! That would eliminate way to much of the dribble that is hourly posted.

You are probably correct that they come from a birther, truther, or something similar. Maybe its just folks getting out of the latest Trump meeting.

KF, it was released in the Jackson paper when Jackson police dept. began their creative posting of the crime rate. If you want proof try looking for it instead of supporting the criminals and those who provide a safe haven for them.
The problem with the entire city of Jackson is that it is majority black. Just look at what has happened to the city under black leadership. Haven't you driven down the streets? Do you drink the water? Have you noticed the leadership trying to protect the criminals that prey on citizens of other cities then run back to the protection of Jackson? Have you noticed the drop in population? Have you looked at the number of businesses that have moved to other cities?
You are too worried about being PC. Try opening your eyes.

"The problem with the entire city of Jackson is that it is majority black."

You know, there is a different between being "too worried about being PC" and being a crappy human being. I would inform you that it's 2016 and time for you to get over Jim Crow, but I'm guessing that would be asking too much. Have fun at the next Trump rally.

Someone please inform the genius at 6:19 there's this fancy new invention that allows people to cross moats. It's called a bridge.

12:11 You are delusional you think we want him at a Trump rally.

Anonymous said...

KF What exactly are you objecting to in 9:57's question? 9:57 posed a QUESTION. I think 9:57 was responding to a COMMENT right above his/her question that could certainly use a reference or two to support the claims made there.

Anonymous said...

12:11, It doesn't make a person a crappy human because they can see a problem and take time to look for the cause of the problem. Jim Crow or Donald Trump has nothing to do with it.

All it takes is driving down the streets of our capital city.
Take time to look at all of the potholes you have to dodge. Look at all of the water leaks. While you are there look at all of the deserted homes. Look at the condition of the homes that are not deserted. Listen to the rants of elected Jackson leadership. Notice how the black leadership supports attacking other police depts. that are forced to chase criminals into Jackson. Did you notice all of the closed businesses? Try driving down the Jackson streets after dark.

Either you have not visited Jackson in several years or you are part of the problem. Something just makes me suspicion that you are one of the problems.

1:08, I live in Jackson. I'm aware of its problems. I don't claim to be perfect or have all the solutions to those problems, but blaming them on Jackson being majority black is antiquated at best. Your position that I should equate a majority black population as the "cause of the problem" is laughable and sad at the same time.

Also, you forget that there are good things happening in Jackson. Some of our State's best restaurants, museums, and hospitals are located here. Several movies, such as The Help and The Hollars were filmed here and some of our neighborhoods (e.g. Belhaven) have been featured as one of "America's great neighborhoods" and the City was featured in a New York Times travel segment. We were also voted as one of America's most friendly cities.

Like it or not, Jackson is a representation of Mississippi - both as its Capital and as its largest city by more than 100,000 residents. A healthy Jackson is good for a healthy Mississippi. We have much work to do, but good things are happening as well, particularly in places like Fondren, Eastover, and Belhaven (despite how much you focus on the negatives).

1:41, yes Jackson does have much work to do. The sad part is the last half a dozen mayors just lined their pockets and the pockets of their friends instead of trying to improve the city.
Can you give us any reason the water system has not been took care of?
Can you give us any reason why the streets have not been took care of?
Can you give us any reason there are so many vacant houses in Jackson?
Can you give us any reason the houses that people still live in are in such poor condition?
Can you give us any reason there is was and is still so many criminals working for the water dept?
Can you give us any reason why so many home owners did bot pay their water bills and stole water?

A healthy Jackson would indeed be good for a healthy Ms. We will not see a healthy Jackson until the leaders we know have are replaced with honest people.

THANK YOU 1:41PM. I am sick to death of the negative attitude towards Jackson. Just sick of it. I'm a MAH-disonite and I would love to see Jackson thrive because that only makes all of its surrounding communities that much stronger. This open hostility and outright bitterness towards Jackson is just ridiculous. I know I'm not alone when I say that there are some areas of South Jackson that should just be leveled and let the earth take it over, but every big city in the nation has these areas and these problems. I do not know the solution but I really hope that one is found.

9:31,, Jackson was not always like it is today. At one time the water system actually got the water to your home. A person could drive down the streets without damaging their car in pot holes. There wasn't blocks of vacant houses. City utilities workers didn't steal from the city.
Something happened to change Jackson. No one wants to find and correct the problems.

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

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.
