'perception of crime'
'Jackson is a nice place'
'What are you doing to help the 'youth''

By remaining in Jackson, you people are not only endangering yourselves, but the lives of your families as well. Simple as that.

This isn't just in Jackson. Two women yesterday, on two separate occasions, were followed from Clinton into Jackson, and then robbed.

Y'all 9:45 has shown the error of my ways. My life is changed by a commenter.

9:46; What you just described was indeed in Jackson.

So, if we see any 16-20 yo B/M venturing out of Jackson into the suburbs, we should throw bricks, bottles, and rocks at them. I'm just trying to use the Stokesian Principle to solve other problems in our community.

They may have been followed from Clinton, but they were robbed in Kennuf Stokes' safe haven of Jackson.

Location of previous attacks?

9:45 am, thank you so much for your "concern." I'm a woman living in Jackson, and I'm not leaving. I love it here. Now, go back to your bunker. Thanks.

For this Public Advisory to be issued by the JPD you have to wonder what they aren't saying or in other words what we all don't know. I have for several years thought being in Jackson was unsafe for EVERYONE, and I sure do now.

Right, you are a woman. Just like Bruce Jenner is a "woman".

Think ol' Donner will heed this warning?

10:39, I'm definitely a woman. Have even birthed a few kids. Thanks for playing.

Anonymous said...

What they're leaving out is that all of the victims have been white, and all of the culprits have been black.

It is good to see JPD being pro-active instead of reactive for a change. It helps keep us all safer for them to be open and honest about what is going on and not try to cover up crime to help public perception. The more communication, the better we can all help watch out for crime!

I live in Madison. Carjackings have happened here. Person was arrested on a lesser charge so that the crime would be covered up.

Facts please.

Madison PD does not use lesser charges to cover up anything----You do a crime and you are going to jail period----I think you made your post up or got it from that great news website "facebook"

Illogical at 9:45 and 10:39, another Jackson woman here. Are women not allowed on this site?
Agree 11:36 on Chief Vance being proactive and communicating. Everyone, including men, need a reminder to be aware of surroundings, no matter where you are.

Ahhhhh Jackson. The City with Soul. Greatest city in the South. It's just too bad the mean old people of Madison and Rankin counties are keeping this Utopia from getting even better, right Baby Boy?

She won't acknowledge what area(s) this is happening in:

11:36 - Seems less about being proactive and more about being reactive to the six cases that have already occurred, no?

Anonymous said...

I thought Vance said crime is down in Jacktown

Anonymous said...

Jackson police have never proactive. Come to think they are not really very reactive either.

Anonymous said...

She also says she was unaware of any injuries. Wasn't a young woman shot just a week ago? And the crimes have been happening in downtown, fondren, belhaven, and Northeast Jackson. All of the victims have been white.

how is this new news? most people have been, or should have been, cautious in Jackson for years! enter at your own risk.

I know a female resident at UMMC was kidnapped and when they couldn't get more money out of her account at the ATM they shot her in the leg I believe it was. It is only a matter of time before a female is raped. The Doctors leave at all hours of the night and there is no security guard that will escort them to their cars. The medical students get a ride to the parking lot across the street in a golf cart and dropped off to walk to the other side of the stadium on their own. They are going to get their pants sued off because it is obvious that it is a dangerous situation.

You are correct. Last year there was a cajacking in Madison resulting in a police chase that ended in Ridgeland with the suspect being killed in a shootout with police. It happened behind Mac's Market. Oh, wait...it was on the news and in the papers, reported as a carjacking. I thought I just dreamed this.

Messick said...

2:02,
Worse still, a tragedy like what happened to Eve Carson could occur.

Justin said...

Thanks for the hat-tip KF. We take a lot of pride in what we do and work hard to make it better each time.

Not sure what a previous poster was referring to about JPD NEVER being proactive. Maybe I just don't know the correct definition. Clearly, I remember classes for the elderly on avoiding crime, particularly educating about con-artists. Also, door to door inspections of your locks and suggestions regarding making your home safer. Cops meetings are certainly pro-active. I've attended the Citizens Police Academy and heard drug talks in school. Also an excellent program on sex crimes. A Few years ago JPD gave out steering wheel locks. I could go on and on, but why? You wouldn't believe me.

Anonymous said...

@10:00

We won't believe you because JPD is nothing more than common criminals with badges.

Anonymous said...

Again would someone please indicate the locations where these incidents have occurred? As a woman, I would like very much to know. For instance, have there been carjackings on Old Canton Road in the stretch between Ridgewood Road and Rice Road? Is this an area in which law enforcement is trying to become more active to provide protection? Any additional information would be so helpful. Thank you so much.

Can anyone recommend a handheld scanner make and model that would allow the monitoring of JPD radio traffic?

Anonymous said...

11:06, you are right. Many of the cops think that is their right as cops to be a criminal. Some become very open with their criminal activity. Sometimes other cops are forced to arrest their fellow cops when they become just too open with their after hours jobs. Most of the time they are let go to continue their criminal ways.

Anonymous said...

I'm glad the JPD will not release the locations of these crimes. We the people have no right to know. Lee Vance is phony when it comes to the white women.

Anonymous said...

Lets think about this for a minute. If women are in danger and need warnings why not let the women know what areas they are in danger when going there? Unless we are talking about the entire city of Jackson.

I'm a 55 year old white mother of 4 living in NE Jackson. Yes, I'm concerned about the crime (all but one of mine is off at college and the son at home is aware), but if there's crime in Jackson, there's crime in the outlying areas. I have friends that work closely with Madison and Ridgeland police, and they have told me for years that the crime there is underreported. I don't doubt it as it's not like these thugs see County Line Road and go "Oh, hell, no, not crossing that county line". The hotels in Madison/Ridgeland seem to have more crime than the Jackson ones for the most part - particularly those near the interstate.

Regardless of who is and isn't immune, what happens in Jackson affects all the outlying cities - bashing it doesn't make anything better. I choose to live here because our neighbors are close friends and our neighborhood is very proactive in watching out for each other. And cause I don't want to drive 40 minutes a day to commute. If I worked in Mad/Ridge, I'd move closer to my work. My time is more precious than anything except my family. Be smart, don't go out alone after dark in Jackson OR Madison OR Ridgeland, carry a gun if it's your thing (I do), and be aware. That's my two bits. Let the hate replies flow...

7:43 pm is right. I didn't see any reports of the break-in and robbery in Madison that happened recently in one of the up scale gated developments. Given the method , dollar value and location, it would have been front page news and on this site had it happened in Jackson.
For decades, it's been " understood" that in Madison the police don't report or investigate but will give the victim a crime case number. The victims only tell close friends so as not to adversely affect the home values in the neighborhood.
Only those who have social connections and the victim's insurance company will know of the crime.
JPD reports every crime.
I'm a woman who has lived and will continue to live in Jackson without fear.

Anonymous said...

By the way, another warning went out to women recently that it's " Gang Initiation Week".
It's not. This is an urban myth. And, that these specific warnings come at different times of the year should be your hint. Think, last year, April was the big month for warnings.
Gangs do not operate like fraternities or sororities but rather take in members individually. Most of the time, members are " blessed" into a gang because they live in the neighborhood or have a family member in the gang or the gang exists at their school or they have joined in prison. Having committed a crime can gain gang attention and since there can be psychos , being "beat" in and such can happen, but in the US, this is not how gangs have operated.
Before you get upset by something purported to be from a Sheriff or Chief of Police try doing a search of the academic research on gangs available on the Internet instead or just try one of the fact or fiction websites.

Anonymous said...

7:46, sure everyone believes gang members bless in all of their members. After all they are widely known for their religious beliefs.

Hey Grace S.

We all know you left Madison for Jackson so you could raise you children in the proper manner. Go on back to selling your beauty cream and stop spewing your BS on this site. JFP suits your needs just fine.

Anonymous said...

7:43 - The only hotels in Madison County that have serious crime are, you guessed it, within a literal stone's throw of Jackson. Madison doesn't investigate crime? Are you serious? Then how is it almost every criminal event in the news results in arrests within a few days, then a speedy trial and sentencing typically less than a year after the crime was committed? It isn't near logical to believe these same cops spend 99% of their time doing nothing more than writing a case # on a card, but then spring into action as law enforcement professionals as soon as the news picks up a story. If your erroneous assumption was fact, then your elected official Kenneth wouldn't have PO-lice chases to complain about. Yes, crime happens everywhere, but to act like crime in the surrounding towns is anywhere near what it is in Jackson is absurd.

Anonymous said...

Everyone knows about the crime rate in Jackson. It is on the news everyday. If you don't believe it just take a trip to Jackson.
There is a reason people have moved out of Jackson.
There is a reason businesses have moved out of Jackson.
There is also a reason for the crime in Jackson. It is a sanctuary city for criminals. What other city can you list that will not allow the cops to chase the criminals?

Anonymous said...

I witnessed a burglary next door to my grand mother's house in Jackson. Perp broke in but got spooked and bolted without any loot apparently. JPD HBO'd it. I know for a fact JPD "under reports" crime either through intent or laziness.

Anonymous said...

Anyone who really cares knows about the way Jackson cops report crimes. Some would rather not know. Doesn't make Jackson any safer, just the opposite. Not only is Jackson a sanctuary city for criminals with the no chase rule, it is making crime even easier because of the way crime is reported.

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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
