Clinton PD lock & loads

The city of Clinton purchased 42 M4 AR-15's for its police department recently.  The rifles cost approximately $36,000.  Charitable donations funded the purchase.  A rifle will be issued to each patrol officer.  Each rifle is outfitted with a flashlight, sling, cases, and scope.  Officers will complete a special weapons training program before they receive the rifle.

Attn 1:18 Rob a bank in Clinton. You will find out what they are going to use them for.

If they will post a couple of officers with these in the right place there won't be a need for any more chases into Jackson.

"Charitable donations funded the purchase."

What I heard was that the rifles were donated by a party on condition that the Clinton Police Department give to that party all it's old automatic weapons. That party now has clear title to those old weapons which can be legally sold on the open market for far more than $36,000.

Does anyone have confirmation of this rumor?

I heard you didn't know what you are talking about.

Thank God everybody will have an AR-15. Clinton would be a lot safer if all of the officers drove tanks and had flamethrowers, too.

They buy these things to use them. I hope the public understands that. If there ain't enough crime, the big.boys with the face paint, the black costumes and the big guns will find some anyway. That's a guarantee.

Ah! the old 223 caliber vs the 308 NATO. No match. The 308 can punch thru a windshield, car body, & body armor. Clinton police are still under gunned.

Clinton will look a lot like Mexico.

36k is lunch money compared to the multimillion dollar lawsuit they are about to be slapped with. Hey Phil, why don't you start raising money for that. Once your insurance is eaten alive cpd will tank and guess who will probably have to take over..jpd or hcso.. idiots.

Meh, looks like they got Smith and Wesson M&P 15s. Anybody in state over 18 with a clean record can buy one. I wouldn't say they are exactly mitarized when you can buy the same thing at Academy or Bass Pro.

6:34. cities have insurance and the police weren't the ones who
caused the crash (watch the video). if the police car hit the car or stray bullets then it's a different story.

The trend of militarizing local police departments is a serious issue, but y'all JFP-ers don't need to get all fired up (see what I did there?) over some AR-15s. The lack of wood stocks doesn't make the bullets travel faster or anything. Here: Why Would I Want an AR-15? Enjoy.

6:34 got beat with the stupid stick. Big time.

The 223 is around for law enforcement that significantly reduced the chance of injury or death by friendly fire. While yes the 308 will go through a windshield, body armor and the back of vehicle the 223 fragments on sheet rock. One person with a 308 is no match for 20 officers with 223's.

Agree with @7:46 on the hysteria over AR-15's. The "gun porn" picture of all the rifles is a bit much, though. Is there a purpose for that?

The cops were outgunned in San Bernadino.

The militarization of our police departments continues.

Hate to say it, but a few AR's aren't going to stop much. A nice concrete wall right in the middle of Northside Drive would do a lot more good!

Top off the wall with a couple of 50-caliber machine guns.........that would be a nice touch.

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.
