Bedwetter alert

The blog Hypeline reported that some bedwetters in Cleveland freaked out over the police living in campus dorms during the Republican National Convention:

For college students at Case Western Reserve University, a dislike of cops takes precedence over education.
Case Western Reserve University will be closed for business next week. That’s because students can’t handle the presence of cops. Controversy started when the private university agreed to house police officers for the RNC convention. Article.

The convention has nothing to do with the students and the officers won’t be doing police work on campus, but the students claim “safety” is an issue. Students and their compatriots complained about the police presence through a Change.org petition.

In the petition, students decided that police are racist, homophobic and dangerous:

Whereas Case Western Reserve University leadership has stated that the University will allow 1,500 riot police to stay in student housing during the Republican National Convention;

We, the faculty, staff, employees, alumni, students, community members, and friends of Case Western Reserve University hereby petition the campus administration to ensure that:

1) Riot police store all weapons, equipment, and riot-control gear off campus;

2) Riot police refrain from entering University-owned buildings, with the exception of their assigned residence halls;

3) The University informs riot police that they do not have jurisdiction on campus and that they shall contact campus police in case of emergency;

4) Riot police refrain from using alcohol or other mind-altering substances for the duration of their stay;

5) Riot police expressly consent to abide by University conduct regulations including, but not limited to: anti-discrimination, sexual harassment, substance abuse, and weapons policies;

6) The University bans from campus any riot police officer that violates University conduct policies;

7) The University informs the campus community of the following details by July 1st:

· The residence halls to which the riot police will be assigned,

· The dates and times the riot police will be on campus, and

· The details of the campus security plan to protect the rights and safety of the campus community during the RNC;

8) The University offers alternative housing arrangements for students in University Summer Housing who request reassignment for the duration of the stay of the riot police;

9) The University provides a mechanism for the campus community to report incidences of riot police misconduct.

Some demands were within reason, but most were unrealistic. Even supporters of the petition appeared to doubt that the university would actually address their fear of police. Case Western Reserve did more than just address those fears.
University President Barbara Snyder apologized for agreeing to house police without asking students first.
Heat Street reported that “classes will likely be held off-campus. Faculty are not encouraged to come to their offices, and students on-campus will be assisted in finding alternate housing.”

Cleveland.com reported that the “university will offer counseling and support services and a ‘safe space’ for those who want to express their concerns about housing police on campus and the convention,” Cleveland.com reported.

 Kingfish note: You can't make this up.

Ho hum. Found it funny more than anything and posted it for purposes of humor.

Cops living there might cramp their style.

Sounds like the police may have more to fear in being there than the students...But Police always put themselves in danger in order to keep the rest of us safe, so that's just another day for them.

Unbelievable that a college president would buckle to such a small group of snowflakes. She actually offered an apology and evacuated the entire campus.

The sheep are getting dumber and dumber. The wolf laughs and the sheep dog can only shake his head and sigh.

I bet the Ole Miss dude with the Farrah Fawcett hair-do is up there.

With respect to demand #4, I find that RICH. Why should the "riot police" be required to refrain from use of mind-altering substances? Sauce for goose, sauce for gander.

Ok, let's see, the students say cops are guilty of stereotyping and profiling blacks, and that's not acceptable. But it's ok for students to stereotype all cops as being dangerous racists ? I wonder if they teach the meaning of "hypocrisy" in their philosophy classes there.

If I was worried about riots and protests spilling over to my campus, I would want more cops and law enforcement on my campus to prevent it.

But no, let's find these students a "safe place"....although I'm not sure of any place that could be safer than one with 1900 cops and 200 National Guard staying there.

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.
