Dukes charged in Hankins murder

JPD issued the following press release:

On Saturday, February 13, 2016, Jackson Police Officers responded to 843 McCluer Rd. regarding a shooting. Upon officers' arrival it was learned that Mr. James Hankins had been shot in the head at this location. He was transported to UMMC via AMR where he later succumbed to his injury and was pronounced deceased. During the preliminary investigation, it was learned that the victim was in his yard doing work when he was approached by an unidentified black male subject. The subject shot him and robbed him for his wallet. He fled the scene running on foot.

On April 14, 2016, after a legnthy investigation by Robbery/Homicide Detectives, Joshua Dukes was developed and identified as the suspect in this investigation. A warrant for Capital Murder has been issued for his arrest. He is still currently being held on two counts of Capital Murder for his alleged involvement in the incident that occurred on March 5, 2016 at 4906 Westhaven Bvld. where two Hispanic males were fatally wounded during the course of an armed robbery.

The investigation is ongoing and more charges and/or arrests are possible.

What is so distressing is JPD seems to capture these thugs every time. Every time. Then you read their rap sheet, and they are multiple arrestees. RSS is a freaking JOKE.

No bond for capital murder, right?

Would like to know which Judge let him out to commit this terrible crime.

Ho Hum said...

Quit posting this shit. Most of us are numb to it.

Why do the judges keep letting these thugs back out on the streets to commit even worse crimes??

People from Jackson do not want stuff like this to be posted. They are alright with people being murdered for a few $. They are alright with the murderers getting away with it. They are even alright with the murderers committing other murders.
They are not alright with it being public how sorry law enforcement in Jackson is. They are not alright with people knowing how dangerous Jackson is. They are not alright with people knowing Jackson is a sanctuary for criminals.

6:23 A judge didn't let him out. I think you have him mixed up with his brother and cousins. The homicide happened in February. No arrest was ever made because the only description given was a black male dressed in black. A double homicide happened in March. A few weeks later two arrests were made in the double homicide. During the investigation of the latter homicide, Joshua Dukes became a suspect in Mr. Hankins death which occurred in February. Today a warrant was issued for Joshua Dukes, who currently resides at the Raymond Detention Center. This charge was added to his already two counts of Capital Murder.

Chockwhe lumumba's New African Republic has come to fruition in the city of Jackson. In all my travels in the u.s. I have never seen a city as decrepit as jackson. I am not a jackson hater and my family has long roots here. The tables have turned and its a very ugly situation. I feel very sorry for this gentleman's family.

This cat has almost earned an invitation to the White House. You have to admire his dedication to his craft.

There is a new housing boom underway in Madison and Rankin counties and it ain't because there is a large influx of people coming into the metro area from elsewhere in Mississippi or from out of state.

Well, I am a Jackson "people" and I am very glad that Kingfish is keeping us informed. Some of you posters would love to just erase what is Jackson, but that is just wistful thinking. It is better for us to know what is happening.

The things that are happening in Jackson will continue to get worse every election unless the people decide they want it to change. So far the people of Jackson are willing to allow crime to happen unchecked. The people of Jackson should have the type of city the majority wants but the people in the surrounding area wish you would keep it inside the city limits.
We do not want thugs coming to our city.

Unchecked? More like unfettered.

@ 8:46, One thing that is being hidden under our noses are the transfer of motels and hotels into subsidized government housing . Your cities need to make regulations to limit the amount of hotels being built, the transfer of them to Minority (Indian) owners and making them housing projects that are located under your noses. Katrina changed the landscape when the influx of residents from New Orleans relocated and there was no place to go. Look at Jackson and you will see the "weekly rate " hotels are everywhere. Just sit and watch the school buses drop off and pick up each day at these places.

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.
