Former cop sues for sexual harassment

The dirt is flying now.  Former JPD officer Tina Bianchini amended her lawsuit against the city of Jackson with some rather lurid allegations yesterday against JPD Deputy Commander Tyree Jones.  Ms. Bianchini filed her lawsuit after she claimed she was fired after she was arrested for a domestic violence incident with another JPD officer she was dating. She claimed she was a victim of sexual harassment and racial discrimination. 

Her amended complaint states:

On March 26, 2015, Bianchini, a white female police officer with the Jackson Police Department (“hereinafter “JPD”)was arrested and charged with domestic violence. Aaron Allen, an African-American male police officer, who also employed by JPD, was involved in the domestic violence incident with Bianchini. Aaron Allen (hereinafter “Allen”) was not arrested or charged with domestic violence on March 26, 2015.

Upon information and belief, Allen and other individuals employed by the City of Jackson and JPD concocted a story to protect Allen and the others. In an official JPD report, Allen claimed Bianchini broke into his home while he was visiting with a female he met on, a website where prostitutes solicit customers. Upon information and belief, JPD officers did not investigate whether the woman at Allen’s house on the morning of the encounter between Bianchini and Allen was in fact a prostitute or whether Allen gave a false statement to law enforcement to cover up the identity of the woman who was present in his home.

While JPD officers did nothing to determine whether Allen broke the law on March 26, 2015, JPD Chief Lee Vance (hereinafter “Chief Vance”) says he was told Bianchini was the aggressor in the domestic violence incident. After Bianchini posted bond, Chief Vance instructed JPD officers to escort Bianchini to his office. Chief Vance gave Bianchini an ultimatum: resign or be fired. Under duress, Bianchini resigned. Chief Vance, who is African-American, did not terminate Allen. In addition, Chief Vance did not fire other African-American police officers who were charged with domestic violence before and after March 26, 2015.

Ms. Bianchini is white.  Mr. Allen and Chief Vance are black. The Clarion-Ledger also reported that Mr. Allen is engaged to city attorney Monica Joiner.  However, the former cop is not done burning down the house.  Apparently Ms. Bianchini engaged in another relationship with another cop:

During the course of Bianchini’s employment with JPD, she engaged in a consensual relationship with Commander Tyree Jones (hereinafter “Commander Jones” ). After Bianchini ended her consensual relationship with Jones, Jones retaliated against her and refused to assist Bianchini in landing a position in the Crime Scene Investigations Department, a position he promised her during their consensual relationship. In addition, Jones refused to help Bianchini secure detail work as he had done during the course of their consensual relationship.

Chief Vance knew or should have known that Jones was involved in relationships with female subordinates in violation of JPD’s sexual harassment policy as there had been number instances where Chief Vance disciplined female officers who were involved with Jones. Upon information and belief, when Chief Vance was shown a photograph of Commander Jones’s penis, he shrugged off Commander Jones’s misconduct. The photograph that Chief Vance was shown is eerily similar to the photograph of Commander Jones’s penis that he sent to Bianchini along with sexually explicit text message.  

 The amended complaint shows several text messages and a um, rather graphic photo on page three.  The amended complaint is posted below.

Ms. Bianchini is represented by attorneys Lisa Ross and Carlos Tanner.   The complaint seeks damages for false arrest,
false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, and violation of her equal protection rights.  The case is assigned to Judge Daniel P. Jordan, III.  Earlier post with copy of original lawsuit. 

Kingfish note: So much for that protein shake I was about to fix for a mid-morning meal. How low can this go?   However, one can't end this post without posting this video.

I do not doubt the substance of the complaint. I am unfortunately familiar with this behavior and it is not unique to JPD.

Why is that tally wacker orange? Was she having an affair with Donald Trump as well? Looks like she got just what she paid for to me. what's the term? "mudshark"? I'm sure her family is so proud of her.

Jackson is coming apart one piece at a time....first the Mayor, the water, sewer, streets, now the Police Department....what is next??

I really believe the only way out of this mess is to separate the duties of the City.....hire a really good adminstrator to run the city and just have the Mayor be a ceremonial, ribbon cutting, person who just gives out keys to the city.....if anyone would even take one.

The "men" uggghhh...boys involved in this mess are ridiculous. They should be fired, on the spot. The "lady" uggghh, I mean sleeze bucket involved in this needs to take her check the City of Jerkson is about to write her & buy a life. She's far from innocent. If a man feels entitled to text you that kinda crap, you've let it be known that you're most comfortable on your back. Any decent person would have responded to a text like that, "please don't ever text me that kind of vulgarity again." Instead, Ms. Stank encourages it. Puh-leeze. Trashy people. Smh.

First of all, she admits the sex was consensual.
It is rather obvious that this female instigated the " domestic violence" by showing up at the home of her " boyfriend" uninvited whether he was with a prostitute or not.
She was a fool if she believed she'd be promoted based on promises made between the sheets with Tyree.
The men ,of course, were fools to involve themselves with such a woman.
Any police officer should be fired for sleeping with a prostitute if 1) money exchanged hands 2) money didn't change hands but he knew she was a prostitute . But , it's possible that the prostitute knew he was a cop but not vice versa and picked him up in a bar in hopes of compromising him. Prostitutes will do that.
More than a few businesses and professional partnerships in Mississippi have paid " go away money" and given good references" to women who threatened sexual harassment when a consensual relationship between the female employee and the more valued male went sour. The women moved on to do the same thing at their next place of employment. The male's colleagues who had more sense resented that the male cost them money.
This should be a cautionary tale for some of you guys, but it won't be. Some of you are too blinded by your political or social prejudices to see the danger. You assume it could never happen to you with some women who is a pretty package, who looks at you adoringly and flatters your fragile ego. You'll want to believe she's as pretty inside as out.
As a young woman , I was sexually harassed in and out of the workplace before there were protective laws. I resented that in the workplace, it was necessary for all the attractive women to pretend to be flattered or seem regretful about their refusal to comply with the men who were constantly inappropriate. So, I am outraged by women who use these needed protective laws after they have agreed to have sex without being threatened or intimidated or badgered. A woman should begin documenting the harassment from the minute it first occurs.
I'm also outraged by lawyers who are willing to represent such women and either take some of the " go away" money or take her money. I'm outraged by lawyers who don't tell the harassing male that he has no defense as well.

Tyree Jones is a f up that Vance will still protect. Vance is inept and fail to realize his "team" is a reflection of him. Go home old man you are a fraud as a leader. JPD has become the worst is ever been under Lee Vance. Look at how many times Jones has been in the media for his transgressions and you make him a commander to lead people. He is the face of the PD and sets a bad example for young officers to follow.

It's rather hard to argue, 7:56 am, that Vance is " the worst ever" given the crime stats under Sheriff Mac who could have better coordinated if not consolidated Hinds county law enforcement and reduced crime and costs, but didn't.

I'm disappointed in Vance's actions in this fiasco. But, if you think JPD didn't have problems during the 60s,70s and 80s, you are ill informed and didn't meet a lot of good policemen who were more than a bit frustrated and more than a few good men left the force rather than compromise their integrity.

@9:05, you are ill informed of the crime stats in Jackson. JPD has become notorious for misrepresenting the coding of a crime. They will code burglaries as malicious mischief incidents. Don't let the crime stats fool you. Vance is a farce that the media has brain washed the Public into believing he is an adequate leader. JPD has had problems since its inception as with all other agencies. As the largest Police Department in the state JPD is lead by an inadequate team of illogical people. JPD needs an outside prescence to lead it.

"Animalistic culture. Normal and accepted in that world."

8:13 - I fail to see anything vague in that post. JPD, and by extension, the entire management team of Jackson, has become a culture of animals. Can you understand that or is it still vague? Cops picking up girls, prostitution involved with the mayor's office, sexual harassment throughout, lay to play is rampant, sexual activity at every turn. City Council members who conduct themselves as clowns. Time between the sheets replacing background checks. Is that still vague?

And finally, 'Accepted'. If it's systemic, which it is, and its not stopped, it's accepted. Is that still vague?

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.
