Latest crime stats

Here are the Jackson crime stats for the week ending March 6, 2016. Burglaries and other property crimes are down substantially from last year across the city and in Precinct 4. Violent crime is down as well in Precinct 4 although it has slightly increased in the rest of Jackson.

I have a question. If I remember right there was a single weekend a while back where there were 9 murders in Jackson just during that one weekend. According to the stats on the first update it says homicides for this year is 10. I seem to remember several more murders happening in Jackson not counting that one weekend. Do these other murders not count? Did these other murders not really happen? Were the people really just playing possum when found?
Something does not sound right.

Do you know how to read?

I can read what you posted.
Homicide year to date-2016-10
Isn't that what it says on the crime stats update?
Is that not what it says?

@12:16 - It's dated March 6

The stats end March 6th.
This story was March 9th -
My guess is that some of those 6 were included in the stats, but not all as they were after March 6th.

Maybe they had to go that far back so the stats would look better. How about a crime stat that is up to date? All it takes is one button pushed on the computer.

@12:58 - These are periodic reports. I believe every city does them similarly. You probably live in Madison anyway, so why do you care?

Have the recent Madison crime stats come out yet? Grandview Blvd in Madison seems very scary lately. Lot's of robberies and the like. I'm hoping they open a Walmart in Gluckstadt soon, so we don't have to risk shopping in Madison.

Where can we go that is safe?????????????????????????????

Kudos to Vance and Mcgowen for continuing the misclassification and nine reporting of crime, especially in precinct four.

Great job Chief Lee Vance and JPD. No crime, especially murder is acceptable, but they are doing as best as anyone could. Circumstances and lack of resources in these neighborhoods with high crime are too numerous to eliminate quickly. Doesn't help that the court system allows criminals back on the street as repeat offenders.

Realize you're trying to be a little humorous, 1:21, but there was recently an exaggerated and shared Facebook report from a woman about a suspect in Madison. Made it sound like there were many related incidents, but after an investigation by MPD, it was found not to be a lot of drama about nothing.

We all know the Jackson stats are crap. Kingfish knows it too. But he enjoys the 'page hits' he gets when he knowingly posts this crap.

My wonderful friend, who is a principal at a Jackson charter school, was carjacked on McDowell Road Monday night with a gun to her head as they pulled her out of her car. This woman came to Jackson to try to make a difference, teaching in an all AA inner city school. I know her well enough to know she won't quit, but good God, Almighty.

Hinds County judges: this is the crap you reap when you keep "catching and releasing." Upstanding citizens who are trying to improve the muck of Jackson are terrorized. How would you like it if this happened to your wife or daughter?

BTW, when will the killers of Carolyn Temple come to trial?

Can't help but think of the series "The Wire" when these Comstat reports get published.

The crime stats should start out with "Once upon a time".

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.
