Rankin thug gets 55 years

Rankin-Madison County District Attorney Michael Guest issued the following press release:

Brandon Man Receives 55-Year Sentence for Armed Robbery, Aggravated Assault,
 Kidnapping, and Burglary

Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney Michael Guest announced today that Gary Raymond Mapp pled guilty and was sentenced to serve 55 years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections for armed robbery, aggravated assault, kidnapping and burglary.

On June 17, 2015, the Rankin County Sheriff’s Office was contacted regarding a man who had been attacked, handcuffed, chocked and held at gunpoint.

The victim told law enforcement that he was at his girlfriend’s house when he heard a knock on the door and saw a man standing outside wearing a ballistic vest with the words, “Hinds County Sherriff’s Office” in yellow on a patch on the front of the vest. He also noticed that Mapp was carrying a semi-automatic handgun. Mapp asked the victim to step outside of the home where he was then placed in handcuffs and told to lay on the ground.

 Mapp then drew his weapon and entered the residence. Mapp came back outside of the house and made the victim move back into the house where he was forced to the floor in the hallway. Mapp went back through the residence a second time before returning wearing a Halloween mask over his face. The victim was forced into the bathroom where Mapp went through the victim’s pockets.

The victim attempted to escape and ran outside where he was tackled by Mapp and held at gunpoint. The victim managed to escape once again by running through the woods to a neighbor’s house where law enforcement was called. Mapp then fled the residence after having stealing money and jewelry.

Law enforcement was advised that the house had a working camera system and had recorded much of what the victim had described. Law enforcement was able to identify Mapp as a possible suspect and the victim. Police learned from Mapp’s girlfriend that he had been in the house previously and that he had a law enforcement-style ballistic vest and handguns inside of his residence. The woman was shown a picture of Mapp obtained from the video and she quickly identified him. She also identified Mapp’s truck. In addition, the victim selected Mapp’s picture from a photo lineup.

Mapp’s truck was located in front of a Jackson hotel. Law enforcement entered the room that Mapp had rented and found where Mapp had cut a hole into the wall which allowed him to enter an adjacent room where he was found and arrested. The stolen jewelry and money were found in the hotel room along with a handgun.

Guest stated, “Mapp is a dangerous individual who went through a great deal of planning and preparation to commit this violent crime. If Mapp had not been arrested I am confident that there would have been additional victims that Mapp would have preyed upon.”

Guest added, “This case is especially troubling because Mapp portrayed himself as a law enforcement officer to gain entry into the home. Once inside he detained, assaulted, and robbed an innocent man. If the victim had not fled the home and escaped to a neighbor’s house the outcome may have been much worse. Mapp is a violent and dangerous person and I am very thankful to the Rankin County Sheriff’s Office for the outstanding job they did to put this criminal behind bars for decades to come.”
District Attorney Michael Guest was sworn into office in January 2008 and represents the Twentieth Judicial District, Madison and Rankin Counties. For more information regarding the District Attorney’s office, please visit

Arrest to sentencing in less than 8 months. But let's not talk about the incompetence of Shuler Smith.

Looks mixed to me.

I agree. He's white-ISH: some sort of a mix.

Sure hope he isn't like my neighbor. He was sentenced to 30 years. Had to spend nearly 3 months in jail.

4:27, No, I live in Rankin County.
From what the neighbor tells me he has a sheriff deputy as a friend and customer. He always knows when a bust is going to happen.

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.
