Manhunt in South Jackson. This guy will be easy to find.

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety issued the following press release:

 Officers from several law enforcement agencies are searching an area of south Jackson for a man wanted in Georgia. Authorities are looking for 35-year-old Wesley Walton of Naylor, Georgia. Walton is wanted on felony vehicle theft charges. Walton is described as a white male, five feet, ten inches tall, weighing 190 pounds with brown eyes and hair. The search area is a wooded area north of TV Road off Highway 18 in southwest Jackson. If anyone has information regarding the whereabouts of Wesley Walton contact the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation at 601-987-1530.

Walton was sighted today about 11:00 a.m. by a US Marshal’s task force. Officers discovered Walton was in a stolen Ford pick-up truck. The officers attempted to talk with Walton and Walton attempted to run over them with the truck. One officer discharged his weapon in an attempt to stop the vehicle blowing out two of the truck’s tires. Walton abandoned the vehicle and fled into the woods.

Very unique appearance for South Jackson

It will be like looking for a piece of salt in the pepper shaker

I'm surprised they were able to shoot out the tires with anything less than a high powered rifle. Cool.

If he jacks another vehicle he needs to drive as fast as he can right into Jackson's Ward 3 evading criminal sanctuary zone.

Wonder if Stokes will break out the bottles, bricks, and rocks?

Seriously, some areas in Jackson is likened to a broken sewer line. Crap just continues to seep out. Time for new pipes and a new plumber.

Obviously a hatchet got him on the top of his skull. Kirksey will get him off with an IQ challenge based on blunt-object assault.

Best hiding spot since Charles Evans hunkered down in the parking lot at MetroCenter.

Have any of you ever been to south Jackson? I live in south Jackson, and there are lots of white families living in my subdivison. We're all just regular middle-classed working citizens who enjoy our neat, close knit, and diverse neighborhood. I know there are some people who will hate to hear this, but not all white people are prejudiced haters and not all black people are criminals. I guess some parents teach their children to hate at an early age, and it stays with them for the rest of their lives.

Actually some areas of Jackson (NEJackson specificaly among others) has actual raw untreated sewage flowing unto the surface and endangering the citizens of Jackson then directly via tributaries into the Pearl River to endanger all of the Mississippi citizens downriver of Jackson's open sewage discharges.

Don't believe me? Then position yourself during a heavy rain on Northside Drive between I55 and Ridgewood and watch with your own eyes the human feces, toilet paper, tampoons, and other UNTREATED human waste bubbling up through the manholes on its way to the Eastover Lakes and then eventually on to the Pearl River.

Ashby Foote (who lives on high ground) won't address the problem. Maybe you have the leverage to actually help.

7:50, I saw city workers out with the big Vactor trucks working to fix the problems you are talking about the other day during the big rains.

NOPE, they weren't on Northside Drive. Next time it rains meet me out there with your BS bucket so you can collect some human crapola to add to your compost pile.

As a young man in 1977 I worked for an engineering firm. The City of Jackson contracted with them to conduct a survey of the sewer lines to determine where the breaks were. We would put a smoke bomb in a manhole and then cover the manhole with a large fan to blow the smoke through the line. It was amazing to see the smoke rise up through the ground in peoples yards. Everywhere the smoke rose indicated a break in the sewer line. Smoke also frequently came out of the storm sewers. The was 41 years ago. The problems is nothing new.

I'm not saying you don't have a legitimate complaint, but I did see them working on the problem the other day. You're right, it wasn't right on Northside, it was just off Northside around the corner on Ridgewood.

The "lead-in" to this post has already become a classic. My 80 year old dad almost dropped his Seagrams and water laughing his ass off when I told him "this one won't be hard to find"

Best ever KF !!!!!

7:18, I used to live in south Jackson about a block off of Terry Road. It was a nice community. Friendly people, nice houses, clean yards, no crime. Today it is a little different. Vacant houses, run down houses, yards look like a wrecking yard, not safe to unlock the doors to your car or even roll the windows down, trash everywhere, gunshots very common, streets look like a war zone.
Can anyone tell me what happened?

10:49, you and your dad are easily amused, huh?

10:06 are you asking a rhetorical question or are you truly unclear on what (who) caused the change?

Anonymous said...

2:07, I know what happened but I would be called a racist if I stated the correct answer.

10:06 The same thing that happened to west Jackson 40 years ago and the same thing that is happening to NE Jackson now and for the past 20 years. I grew up in Jackson and it is painful to watch the decay. I live out of state now and visit Jackson a couple of times a year. There are a few positive things Jackson has going for it, but it is hard to right a sinking ship without a solid hull.

Did this man get away from the cops. Looks like the Jackson cops would have the advantage over a stranger to the city. What happened?

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.

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.
