Sheriffs support Dallas PD

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey posted this message on Facebook: 

Four officers dead, several wounded, all on duty, wearing uniforms. All attacked because of their profession - profiled for what they do. Where is the nationwide public outrage from religious leaders? civic leaders? Where is the outrage from our nations president on this HATE CRIME? This is a racist massacre that just occurred against men in blue. Law enforcement officers seem to be bashed in the media every day because of the questionable actions of a few officers across the nation, which we don't even know all the facts about. I'm sick of all the anti-police crap and heartbroken over the death and injuries to so many officers. I'm thankful to be the Sheriff in Rankin County, which feels like the Alamo in this day and age. People have questioned about why we have a MRAP and this is one reason why. I pray something like this never happens here, but if it does, we will be prepared. I'm asking ALL Rankin County Law Enforcement Officers to be aware and prepared at all times. There are anti-police individuals in our county on social media who are promoting violence against officers. Let's all be in condition yellow at home and when we walk out the door.

Meanwhile, Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker put up this billboard:

Sick of this shit!! This nation needs to cut our pitting Americans against one another. ALL LIVES MATTER!!! Police and civilians. Lives are lives. We should be equally outraged over unwarranted violent killings. No one deserves death! Enough of this crap! It isn't a firearm issue. It's about mutual respect for Americans, whatever our differences may be.

Woo hoo. I'm sure the USA is looking to Rankin County for answers.

The GD pandering on both sides has to stop before we all end up in the third world.

Rankin County feels like the Alamo. Good God that's like saying the line at the Ryan's buffet is like the Siege of Vicksburg. I'm appalled at the GOP office holders shameless profiteering from recent events.

Could 2016 be the swing year that normal whites reject tea party houliganism and a conservative Democratic Party comes to the scene? I'm waiting on the Rankin delegation to declare a cross burning. Let the country have 24 hours to grieve before the political pandering starts.

9:54. His comments are spot on. The next President won't save us. Only personal accountability guided by faith will. We have to believe and trust our faith. Escalation, while understandable given the violence (meaning that everyone is skeptical of intentions) will only make things worse, more violent.

I’m glad to see Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey and
Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker are expressing support for the Dallas PD.

Has Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason issued any public statements supporting the Dallas PD ?

Just wondering.

OK, what is the alternative? The POTUS started this four years ago. This was yet another issue that was created by the Democrats where a real issue did not exist. Where are the stats to show that this is a real problem? Do cops ever kill blacks? Sure, just like cops kill criminals of all races. The criminals are bad people. They carry guns. They kill cops. The police must defend themselves. Some times a policeman goes too far - we have local courts, judges, and juries to handle that. To think that the Federal Government is needed is an insult to all of us who serve on local juries. So the POTUS encourages the wacko groups to protest. Protest in places like Ferguson, MO where the FACTS showed the policeman did nothing wrong. But he does more than encourage. He phones governors and mayors and tells them to have the national guard and police stand by and let these fools burn cities down because a black thug was killed by a policeman who was doing his job. We can see this. The entire nation has been watching how irresponsible the POTUS has been about this four four years. Murders are way up as a result of this. Policeman are resigning and that is going to get worse. As a society we must have police, but the individual officers can do something else to earn a living. So the long term result is that the quality of policemen will go down and the cost of paying them will go up. So the Republicans are supposed to pretend that Oboma has not inflamed this situation? They are supposed to ignore his unbridled racism? When a Muslim terrorist kills a bunch of people, POTUS is on TV telling us how that was just one person. We should remember that most Muslims are good people. But when a policeman kills someone does POTUS go on TV and tell us not to hate on police? Tell us that most policemen are good people? The GOP are not the politicians you should be complaining about here. Open your eyes. This truth is ugly, but you should see it as it really is.

"OK, what is the alternative? The POTUS started this four years ago. " -

no - that is completely untrue. I seriously suspect a bunch of disenfranchised white losers started this and now they have the Dumpster as their hate mongering flag bearer - someone who truly doesn't give a damn, by the way, about people like the middle or lower class trash in Rankin or anywhere else, thinking only of himself - the guy is a sociopath and attitudes that he promotes will lead us into a conflagration.

Isn't it time that people realized something was inevitable as a result of institutional hatred of black people- to which we all acquiesce by failing to be outraged.

Finally, look at our prison system. Stop the stupid war on drugs, a poor excuse for public policy that has cannibalized our resources that could be used for education and support of those who have been chained to a legacy of being "less than" as a result of their skin color.

I am sick of seeing my black friends and employees forced to live in fear.

Victor Mason,Hahahahah, now that's funny, he's done in 7 months what took Tyrone 2.5 years to do. Victor has nothing to say because he's been screwing his own people since he was elected. Victors all about a Dog and Pony Show and he'll be another One Term Dummy.

He's placed 2 Marked Patrol at his own house because of the Courthouse bomb threat.
Victors weak as Circus Lemonade.

The killings and shootings in Dallas were unjustifiable.
But, please tell me how you justify putting a gun against the chest ( rather than the shoulder supposedly reaching for the gun) and deliberately killing a person lying on the ground with two big guys on top of him? His crime was running off a homeless guy by waving his gun around.
Please explain how a guy with no record of even a parking ticket, who has had a good job for years , who has a woman and a four year old in the back seat, ends up dead for a broken taillight? The police can run plates anymore?
And, please explain how the woman whose hands are clearly involved in videoing you and who is talking ends up on the ground and cuffed in front of her hysterical child?
Neither race can rationalize or defend the outrageous actions of their own! If a white person had been sniping blacks or a black cop killed a white driver, would you be defending or trying to excuse those actions?
It may be a news flash to some of you, but a badge carries more personal responsibility in our society for a reason. And, that reason is to protect citizens from law enforcement being used to rob of us our freedom!
And, like any moral person, I'm no longer entertained by those who incite others to hate by telling outright lies or lies of omission!
With freedom comes responsibility, including the freedom of speech. You all owe the guys defending our freedoms overseas to not be trying to destroy our Nation by dividing us with hateful , lying partisan crap!
Opinions are like assholes, we all have one but we should verbally fart in public!
Partisan politics is out of control! And, the result is I'm left with having to choose between and a man who is clearly either a megalomaniac bully or in the early stages of dementia and an overly ambitious, narcissistic woman who will lie to cover up her mistakes even when telling the truth is in her best interest! God help us!

As a retired LEO, I call on all officers, nationwide, to take a week off to mourn the events in Dallas. See what happens during that week and I'm thinking most honest folks will feel they are needed.... Oh, I would suggest the general public arm themselves because without that "Thin Blue Line" between them and anarchy, it will be a LONG week!

I have a few questions. Asking for anyone to answer.

How man blacks have been killed by other blacks since the last two incidents of cops killing blacks?

Why is there no one with a phone around when a black kills another black? Even though there may be many witnesses there isn't a single video of it.

Cops kill more whites then they kill blacks. That isn't a question, it is a fact.

Why do black lives only matter when they are killed by a cop?

Last. I will ask why blacks do not seem to care when a black kills a part of their family but will riot when a cop kills a black during an arrest?

I will always remember the news story about several blacks robbing a business in Jackson and killing several people. There were plenty of witnesses but not a single person knew the killers. That is until one black woman, excited by being on tv, actually accidentally told the name of one of the killers during her interview. Immediately realizing she had said his name she put her hand over her mouth and ran. The killers were local and well known by every witness.

There are no clear cut answers to the policing issue and use of lethal force by law enforcement. These police involved shootings have always occurred. The difference is we live in a society where everyone has a camera phone. As such, more and more of these incidents will be recorded and put in social media for all to see. Those videos will continue to invoke passions one way or the other. Our Congress needs to be addressing these issues from the use of deadly force to providing resources for all of law enforcement (urban and rural) to have body cameras. Because there will be more deaths. There needs to be bipartisan solutions. Trying to blame one party or the other solves nothing.

Let's look at the morning of his death.Sex offender,convicted felon with a STOLEN gun in his pocket committing the felony of selling bootleg cd's. Think it's a far cry to guess that ol Alton decided he had nothing to lose and went for the stolen gun in his pocket to avoid going to Angola until he was old and gray as a habitual felon?

Police were answering a 911 call that he threatened someone with a gun. Race played no role at all in his death.

Doesn't matter who started it. You don't have to participate in it. I agree with the poster that called out our elected officials that are doing the pandering.

The rules which govern the use of deadly force are established by an agency's use of force policy and are underpinned by commonly accepted principles known as the force continuum.

These policies vary agency-by-agency and are dependent upon law, agency mission, the agency's tolerance for risk, and the force projection techniques available to a particular agency. For instance, there are agencies whose leaders do not allow their officers/agents to carry non-lethal weapons (eg. baton, OC spray, TASER), so the force projection techniques available for that agency are limited to presence, verbal commands, pain compliance/strikes, handcuffing and lethal force. Other agencies choose to offer their officers/agents additional options when dealing with a non-compliant person or other threat.

One thing to remember in each of these cases is that most force continuum policies articulate the fact that the person who an officer/agent is involved in an encounter with is the one making the decision for the officer/agent. For example, an individual who points a gun at an officer/agent can reasonably expect to be fired upon by the officer/agent. In addition, most use of force policies articulate the idea that the officer has the option to reasonably accelerate, or decelerate the force continuum based on that particular circumstance. For example, an officer/agent who feels s/he is in mortal danger can accelerate the continuum directly from verbal commands to lethal force in order to neutralize the threat to him/herself or the surrounding public. Conversely, if the person complies, the officer/agent can decelerate his/her use of force, keeping in mind that s/he must maintain the safety of him/herself and the surrounding public.

I am happily retired after having served more than 30 years as both a police officer for a large metropolitan department and as a federal agent, and can attest to the fact that there are wide variances in agency culture which dictate how agencies train and equip their personnel and this can have a direct effect on how encounters with citizens resolve.

These issues are not easy to solve, and there is no "one size fits all" approach to every agency, officer, or encounter. Law enforcement officers make life and death decisions every day - often in the blink of an eye - but these decisions are counterbalanced by the decisions the public make when they are encountered by law enforcement.

Alton was a busy man. Did he ever do anything that was not criminal? If he did he must have been very fast about it. Not much time for anything else.

Great. Who in the past started it? Who is the present has to pay?

Anonymous said...

It's simple. Better pay, and better training. Up the pay to attract good candidates, so the good professional officers are the norm, and not the exception. Make MLEOTA the bare minimum. Make the minimum hours as a trainee ridiculously high. With good enough pay, you can attract folks who will be willing to endure a ton of training. And heavy psyche evals during training. Wean out the ones like the MN cop who never, ever should have been given a badge. He was terrified. No shame in that, unless you are an officer with a gun and the propensity to use it. This isn't a panacea, but it's a good start.

Anonymous said...

Better pay is not going to do a damn thing about lowering crime. We do not have that much of a problem with our police force. We have a crime problem. We have a problem with people thinking a person should be allowed to break the law just because of their color. We have a problem with people not stopping long enough to learn the complete story. We have a problem with race whores who make a living by keeping the races separate and angry. Our main problem is ignorance.

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.

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.
