Former JPD cop alleges reverse discrimination & domestic violence

Update (10:55 PM): Where is Clarence when we need him? The Clarion-Ledger reported tonight that City Attorney Monica Joiner recused herself from this case because she is engaged to Aaron Allen. 

A white former JPD officer sued the city of Jackson and Chief Lee Vance for racial discrimination in U.S. District Court on June 24.  The complaint states:


Tina Bianchini files this lawsuit to redress the deprivation of her constitutional right to Equal Protection arising out of her forced resignation after she was threatened with termination if she did not resign. On March 26, 2015, Tina Bianchini, a female police officer with the City of  Jackson, was arrested and charged with domestic violence. The African-American male police officer that was involved in the domestic violence encounter was not arrested or charged with domestic violence on March 26, 2015. In addition, Police Chief Lee Vance, who is African-American, has not fired other African­ American police officers that have been charged with domestic violence before and after March 26, 2015. Tina Bianchini was fired because of her race.  She is white.

6. On March 26, 2015, Tina Bianchini, a white female, who was employed by the Jackson Police Department, as a police officer, was arrested and charged with domestic violence. The City of Jackson Police Department did not arrest Aaron Allen, the African-American male JPD officer involved in the alleged domestic violence incident.

7. JPD officers came to Aaron Allen's home on the morning of March 26, 2015 after Aaron Allen called Lt. Randy Avery, who is African-American, on his personal cellular phone and stated that he had a situation at his residence. Lt. Randy Avery came to Aaron Allen's home alone and Sgt. Kenyatta Gowdy came a short time later. When officers arrived, they listened only to Aaron Allen's allegations against Tina Bianchini and refused to listen to Tina Bianchini's allegations against Aaron Allen.

8. Based on Aaron Allen's statements, officers arrested Tina Bianchini and transported her to St. Dominic Hospital where she was treated for injuries she suffered during the incident with Aaron Allen. After Tina Bianchini was released from St. Dominic, she was transported to the Jackson Police Department, where she was charged with domestic violence and given a $700.00 bond. Upon information and belief, after Tina Bianchini's bond was posted, she was held in the Jackson City Jail where she remained in a cell until she was escorted to Police Chief Lee Vance's office.
Police Chief Lee Vance gave Tina Bianchini a pre-prepared resignation letter and told her she could sign it or be terminated. Faced with termination, Tina Bianchini signed the letter of resignation.

9. After Tina Bianchini was released from jail, she repeatedly went to JPD and attempted to file charges against Aaron Allen but JPD officers refused to allow her to swear out an affidavit against Aaron Allen.

10. Aaron Allen, however, was subsequently indicted by a Hinds County Grand Jury and charged with aggravated domestic violence. When Aaron Allen was indicted, Police Chief Lee Vance did not terminate him.

11. On January 25, 2016, the domestic violence charge pending against Tina Bianchini was remanded to the file.

12. As a result of her wrongful termination from JPD, Tina Bianchini also was terminated from her job as a security officer at an apartment complex in Jackson, Mississippi and relieved of her security guard duties at a local restaurant.

13. After Tina Bianchini was terminated because she was involved in a domestic violence incident, Police Chief Lee Vance and the City of Jackson continued to employ African-American police officers, including but not limited to Aaron Allen, who were charged with domestic violence. Tina Bianchini has a constitutional right to be treated by the defendants like similarly situated African-American police officers charged with domestic violence.
 The case is assigned to Judge Daniel Jordan, III.  Attorney Dana Sims represents the city of Jackson.

Tina Bianchini was a horrible officer.

What's up with Randy Tucker?Those are some pretty serious charges coming out of Madison County.

White people have no rights.

And now Madison Co. Sheriff Dept. is being sued for discrimination as well. Except this is alleged "regular" discrimination.

She made a turrible decision. Maybe she will learn...I doubt it.

Bottom line: One thing matters in Jackson government, and one thing only - RACE.

This white dude is not believing that Lee Vance fired someone because he or she is white.

Why not, 8:00?

KINGFISH, you missed the story behind the story with this one. That story is that City Attorney Monica Joiner has to transfer this case because of a conflict of interest. According to Anna Wolfe at the Clarion Ledger, Ms Joiner is engaged to the Mayor's bodyguard Aaron Allen, the guy whose domestic violence action led to this litigation!

Can it get anymore incredible?!

4:25 PM summed it up in five words.

Since a domestic violence conviction bars one from purchasing a firearm how is anyone that is convicted of domestic violence still a cop? Are these all charges that never ended in a conviction?

Can somebody recap everything going on in the Bold New City? Very hard to keep up!

Where is the story about the Madison County Sheriff Department being sued for racial discrimination? Careful, please "don't trip over your own words and fall into hypocrisy." Because "hypocrisy is the mother of all evil and racial prejudice is still her favorite child."

Sooo...Joiner and Bianchini had a cat fight over Aaron Allen. Bianchini calls out her cheating boyfriend, and a major fight occurs, resulting in major bodily injury to both. Police chief sees that the guy is the boyfriend of the City Attorney and gives him a get out of jail free card. Then the City adds insult to Ms Bianchini's injuries by making her resign.

You can't make this stuff up! Life in Jackson is stranger than fiction where Tony Yarber is connected in any way.

As a taxpayer, I'm glad Ms Bianchini isn't trying to break the bank with her claim for damages.

Settle this one quickly.

4:19 - reverse discrimination is a term invented to address mistreatment by those not in a protected class. While the Supreme Court may disagree, affirmative action and the creation of protected classes violates the rights of many to be treated equally under the law. Establishing quotas and thresholds for certain classes of businesses undermines the free market, creates a false sense of atonement, drives further division, increases costs and reduces efficiency.

Show me ONE quota system or conjured secondary market that is successful and efficient and I'll shut my pie hole!

I thought Monica Joiner was pursuing the mayor according to the Bracey lawsuit. Now she is engaged to this Aaron? Tyler Perry's House of Payne doesn't have writers this good. Educated, professionals acting and living like a bunch of teenage street thugs and making front page asses of themselves is getting old. Perhaps the entire city of Jackson's government workers should take an equal opportunity class. If this is how the adults in the black (and whites) community act, there is no hope for their children. Good heavens people, stop sleeping around with your co-workers. Clean up your lives and show some self respect.

Harvey Johnson set the bar for all this crap, years ago, when he turned the City of Jackson into an employment office. Frank Melton improved upon it but in a slightly different (and less auspicious) sexual model. Then Chokwe was on the verge of enacting sharia law when somebody went and offed him.

Jerry Mitchell and Bill Minor put together could not fabricate all this twisted maze.

I guess we are going to weep the case in Madison County under Rug.

There isn't such thing as "reverse" discrimination. It's just discrimination......

Anonymous said...

It is called reverse discrimination because nearly 100% of claims filed claiming discrimination were filed by blacks for decades. So when whites began getting fired by black administrations they had to distinguish their claims.

You people should get out/read more.

Kingfish said...

Actually 8:24, I didn't know about the Madison case until I saw it online last night. It takes a while to read 30+ lawsuits and then write about them. I guess I should be able to post two stories at the same time as two different reporters working on those same stories. Suck it.

30+ lawsuits, Kingfish? Can't wait to hear about each and every one!

Kingfish said...

Haha. Should be 30+ page lawsuits.

Why would the Pastor Mayor fire his BodyGuard (Aaron Allen) for doing the same shigity he is doing! Birds of a feather Flock together.

Damn Chief Vance, I know it's hard maneuvering in this tangeled Webb! "Call the Sheriff", Opps, he's next if he doesn't slow his roll.

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.
