85 year-old man killed while working in yard.

What words does one use to describe the murder of an 85-year old man who was working in his yard yesterday?  Horrific, barbaric,  and savage are a few that come to mind.   WAPT reported yesterday:



An 85-year-old man has died after he suffered a gunshot wound to the head Saturday.

Police said James Hankins was working in his front yard on McCluer Road just before noon when someone shot him. Authorities believe the incident could have been an attempted robbery. Article.

JPD Chief Lee Vance told JJ that JPD had very little information. The suspect was described as a black male who was seen running from the crime scene. Mr. Hankins's wallet was missing as well. He was shot in the back of the head.

Kingfish note: Catch him, convict him, and crucify him.

No worries everyone. It's just a "perception of crime".

Gang initiation?

Nothing that a taxpayer-funded and taxpayer-backstopped Convention Center Hotel can't fix. All the violence and crime is the result of pent up demand to get downtown, eat downtown, party downtown, live downtown and booze it up downtown.

The thug culture is celebrated in the "community" and there are no consequences for this behavior. We have a moral breakdown and nothing is on the horizon to reverse it. Has anybody thought about a study? And while that is ongoing the preachers can come together and wail and moan and tell their congregations that prayer is the solution. Nope. The answer is swift and tough punishment. And that ain't gonna happen.

Prayers for this poor man, for comfort for his wife, family, friends and neighbors, and for the murderer to be quickly captured and removed permanently from society.

As a person of a certain age who sometimes works in his front yard, I would be in favor of bringing back public execution for this one.

Wonder why we have not heard any thing out of KENNY I-MAN STOKES.
I would guess the dead man is white and the gun man is black!!!!!

This is a tragedy for this wonderful citizen's family, and for the neighborhood. God grant that it becomes a tragedy for this perp also. What a waste of a good man's last years and for the life of a young person who now has lost all hope of a good future.

I am outraged as this behavior continues regardless of who is to blame... We all know we have gangs in Jackson who distribute drugs and who corrupt the young children in their neighborhoods. Get all gang symbols out of schools. Forbid any gang activity or affiliation in Schools. Preachers please talk openly about this problem and about the fact of sin in life and how it effects eternal life.

Make fun of me if you like, you perpetual gleeful Jackson haters. Your immortal soul is in danger too.

This is going to further kill (no pun intended) Clarion-Ledger's home delivery. People aren't gonna want to walk down the driveway to the street.

Carolyn Temple,James Hankins & the black man working at the Auto Zone is the gift Tonnie Green, Richard Schuler Smith is giving to the citizens of Jackson. You can't stop the dismal tide until you have law and order. You won't have law & order until you get rid of TG & RSS.

How could this be, Lee Vance said crime is down in Jackson.

A hateful crime.

Why isn't this a hate crime? Serious question

He appears to be black or mixed (as they say) on the TV news. Maybe that's why it's not a hate crime. Some will suggest the perps might be white boys from Madison. That's a popular theory these days.

A major part of the problem - parents. Parents not just refusing to accept their kid did something wrong and to parent accordingly, but defending them when they do something like this. Like the ones recently taking issue with the DA & Yarber calling them out about their 17 yr son & another kid committing a string of armed robberies in Jackson. They somewhat acknowledged their son did, in fact, commit the alleged crimes, but also literally said "he did not do this"(obvious direct contradiction. He DID), and was "just caught up" with the wrong new friend. But their main point was that they were angry about being called out. Not a word about the victims, that armed robbery is wrong, etc. That sentiment permeates our culture. I unfortunately do not see a solution. Happens in other communities too. Guess its easier to blame someone else. Never being taught you were in the wrong, or wronged someone, growing up creates a scary lack of empathy.

SENSELESS! THUGS running WILD! RUTHLESS THUGS!

5:52, the parents do not give a damn. Most of the criminals do not even know who their father is. Mother just doesn't want to take care of them so lets them run wild.

Yes, Jackson is coming back any day now. Oh look, the neighbor's just put out a for sale by owner sign. I wonder what that's about?

This man, at age 85, was doing what too many Jackson residents are not.... working. He was working in his yard and robbed by a thug who likely has never worked a day in his life.

Don't worry Jackson, after Hillary gets elected, she's going to fix everything for you, Mayor Yaber said so!!! Just another typical Jackson thug that killed a white man, whom I'm sure was one of the last one living there. Build a fence around Jackson, make it a high security prison, most of the criminals in Mississippi already live there. I hope this kid burns in hell!!!! Prayers to this family, their only comfort is he is now truly in a better place!

I prayed for the massive sewage discharge that happened on Northside this afternoon to not happen. It didn't work. Guess I'll need to see if Phony Yarber has any others ideas.

Meanwhile Eastover, I'm guessing most of that sewage has made it to your lakes by now. Enjoy!

Odd, I did not see this on the National news? Where is CNN, ABC, CBS and the Today show?

the state should take over the prosecution and court system in Jackson rather than the airport.

9:38 I wonder if in fact he was "white man". Haven't heard a race description given and photos can be deceiving with that regards. I agree with your outrage but I would further qualify it doesn't matter a gnat's Arse what his race is. Man was apparently acting respectably in his own front yard not bothering anyone and some opportunistic Thug saw an easy mark to take advantage.
Alas, all the outrage, even from the black community (seemingly noticeably lacking from Tony, Lee, Stokes, etc.) will do nothing to change the situation. The solution lays 40 years from today IF all these mommas would quit squirting out children that their care ends up creating a human being with values and morals of a ferral dog. Bottom line ... damn shame but it ain't gona get better in our lifetime.

Why this isn't being reported on every station and the justice department weighing in on a hate crime, I'll never know.

This is about as horrible as it gets, but since the victim was white, it will not be reported as such. A cold blooded, senseless killing of an ELDERLY man.

Anonymous said...

Everyone knows why this wasn't reported on like the usual Jackson killings. Everyone knows why the people that are usually yelling their head off have not said a word.
The elected officials in Jackson are of the same quality as their water system and the streets.

Never seen anything so ignorant and hateful. And I'm not talking about the crime.

Has there ever been an African American prosecuted under the hate crime penalties?? If not, what are the chances that there has never been a hate crime against a Caucasian by an African American ?? Slim to none. The hate crimes were set up to punish Caucasians only which make the hate crime statutes racist.

Anonymous said...

4:37, if there has ever been a black prosecuted for a hate crime I don't know of it. There have been many chances but it would be racist to do that. Everyone is scared of being called a racist. Even to the point of ignoring crimes.

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. 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.
