Motions denied.

Here are the videos of the morning session of the hearing held yesterday in State v. Robert Shuler Smith.  Enjoy.

What is really upsetting about this entire mess is that Asst. DA Jamie McBride is caught up in the Attorney General's quest to get RSS. Why ruin someone's career just to get RSS?

because he thinks he is guilty, 1:47. duh.

How are you so sure that McBride is not actually caught up in the mess. As was pointed out in the argument yesterday, just because his boss might have told him to do something and he did it, if it was an illegal act then he shouldn't have done it.

Being a good guy is not always a good defense. I don't know - and neither do you - whether Jamie was part of the crap going on in that office or not. That's what a trial is for. The grand jury evidently thought enough of the evidence (which neither you nor I have seen) to think that he was guilty enough to indict.

I am beginning to think this Waide guy is as slimy as RSS.

2:43; Is there some reason you're so damned late getting to the party?

2;37 Thank you for your comment. Being a nice guy does not mean you are not an accessory.

2:37 Anyone who knows McBride certainly knows he would never do anything against the law. He takes his job and responsibilities very seriously. No one can see that he is the scapegoat here??????

If he were told by his boss to do something would he do it? Would he bother to think about whether it was 'against the law' or just a weird request. If he knew his boss were doing wrong, would he report it?

If he didn't know his boss was off his rocker and trying to protect people he was supposed to be prosecuting, he might be 'a good guy' but he would have to be dumb as shit. Don't know if that's a crime, but its not a good recommendation.

I don't know McBride. I don't know what info was put before the grand jury. Evidently he and his family and friends on here do know him. Do you know what evidence exists, or are you just using the good guy defense?

If it is the good guy defense, how did you feel about Bobby DeLaughter? Everybody said he was a good guy. And I won't even ask you about your feelings on Scruggs, although he had wonderful recommendations about what a great guy he was.

Why in hell do these same three people keep posting (on every related thread) what a 'good person' McBride is? Do they think it will become true if they say it often enough?

There are a lot of good people that RSS has put through the mud but because Jamie McBride is white and weak he is a good person. I for one don't think he is a good person. Would a good person betray the confidence of his friends to score points with a boss that he knows is absolutely crazy.

Look what he attempted to do Beasley and Turk with that affidavit. Those guys did nothing wrong by asking McBride were they going to be indicted yet Waide and RSS had Jamie to sign an affidavit to make it appear to the public that they were wrong. Excuse me but so far it looks like they were only doing their jobs. This is becoming clearer each day. Butler was crooked, the. AG went after them and RSS went after Turk and Beasley for doing their job. Jamie McBride is weak and only the defense attorneys who got good deals from him because he is a terrible trial lawyer thinks he is a "good guy". I hope he goes down with RSS

@7:12 I don't think it's the same three people posting. I know Jamie personally and this is the first time I've posted here on this subject. Jamie is a great person. He doesn't deserve any of this.

/not a terrible trial lawyer

@11:29 I know Beasley, Turk and Stanley Alexander. All three of them are great people. None of them deserve any of the crap that they have received either. They were merely doing their jobs. Jamie made a decision to stay with Robert. Both Turk and Beasley left the SOB years ago.
Jamie McBride is no better than anyone else. This is my first time posting on this subject as well and my point is there is a lot of folks like the one I just named that don't deserve their names drugged through the mud. It pisses me off that the white guy, is the only one anyone has any sympathy for--even though he made a conscious decision to remain loyal to that idiot.

Where I come from "great people" don't sell out their friends. Jamie is a spineless jellyfish of a man, who now has to stand up for being loyal to his paycheck. Same that bleeding heart crap for someone else.

1:10 I know Jamie McBride and your comment reflects no knowledge of the actual person I know. Jamie also was simply doing his job, writing a memo to his boss (no one else) at the request of his boss. He has been caught up in situation not of his making, and not having violated any law (or indicted for any specified infraction) and should be release accordingly at the first opportunity.

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.

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.
