You know how those "loose women" in Madison are. They cause the children to have issues

Yazoo County Detention Center? Why is that?

Hey, I wanna know about how to find out more about these loose Madison women 11:23 is talking about. But I don't want the baggage of a bad kid. Where y'all findin' 'em?

11:20 That's some nice deflection you got there. Must be tough for you to accept that there are gun-toting thugs at MCHS. Prayers 4 u

MCHS = A, all the JPS High Schools D or F. Must be tough for you to accept that JPS schools are garbage. Too bad 4 U.

Any thought to the kid being bullied and felt like he needed to protect himself?

When I was in high school half the kids had rifles or pistols in their vehicles in the parking lot. Bringing an unloaded pistol would have been frowned upon, but they wouldn't have mobilized the f***ing police.

Times certainly have changed.

11:31 - It's because Madison County has no facilities for housing juveniles.

1:34, not much help when you don't have any ammo for the gun. Might as well carry a rock.

Sad story in sad times. But speaking of happy times, how much longer before the Costco opens?

It's called Columbine and Sandy Hook.

Check out the new fight video from JPS... What the heck are those girls so upset about that they risk getting their weaves ripped out? Ugh!

I know this family and the kid is no thug. Just didn't think period! Don't make assumptions you know nothing about!

Anonymous said...

3:32. The facts say the kid brought a gun to school. Did he intend to shoot someone? Himself? That teacher who 'gave' him a lower grade?

Lock him up for a few years in Juvenile Detention Center. We don't need a Columbine here...

You can feel very safe about your kids in Madison. Until they turn about 12. Then they face the same issues that all teens face and no amount of brick columns changes that. Takes a lot of prayer to raise a teenager.

3:22. "He's a good kid. Goes to church and sings in the choir. Loves his mother.". i think we've heard that before. the we don't know argument. it does not work in jackson and it does not work in madison either...

What did I miss? Please tell us what an 'emo kid' is? I'm always willing to learn from you Niknar guys.

I thought with open carry that students could carry guns to school.

1911 Colt.22 conversion? Not cheap.

Hey 5:25 guess your perfect and don't make mistakes. Real people make mistakes sometimes huge ones. Why instead of judging this kid and family why don't we pray for them!!

This student probably does come from a good family, lives in a nice neighborhood and is a church member. But anyone who knows him knows he has some issues. This is not the first time he’s been in trouble in recent months and not even the first time he’s spent time in Yazoo. Just a few weeks ago he was bragging on SnapChat that he was at an Ole Miss football game while he was supposed to be under home confinement - the result of a drug-related arrest - and spewing expletives at the Madison PD. Coming from a good family does not make him immune to problems and certainly does not mean he shouldn’t be punished. As another Madison parent with a son who has had his fair share of issues I think I am qualified to say - we have to stop trying to fix the problems our kids are getting into and start trying to fix our kids. Our kids need to be forced to accept responsibility for their mistakes and whatever punishments are deemed fair by the schools/court system. Parents need to figure out why their kids are acting out and find a way to help them turn their lives around before it’s too late. Sometimes it’s easier to make a few calls, write a few checks and wash our hands of the latest “uh-oh”. But that is in no way helping our kids grow into responsible adults. And I wholeheartedly agree with an earlier commenter who stated we need to stop judging and start praying.

My son said it was a white male that was a known troublemaker. Got arrested at the school earlier this year trying to sell weed to the janitor. Should have been expelled after that.

1:34 Probably because we don't live in Oregon Trail (the real thing, not the computer game) times anymore, gramps. Did you and your buds have duels after school, too?

Anonymous said...

6:24 nope I don't judge any color. I am the one that posted that earlier and I see no color I see a world that needs less judging and more prayer. I am pretty sick of the race card being thrown up every time something happens or is said everything is not about the color of your skin it's the condition of your heart.. If you only knew me you know I don't see the color of skin. I am a Madison mom who has kids white/ black etc that call me mom and I love each and everyone of them.

People movin out, people movin in why, because of the color of their skin. Run, run,run but you sho can't hide..Vote for me and I'll set you free...

8:48 It's the "culture" of this blog. It's weird: no posts about this kid's parentage, excerpts from his Facebook page (usually get that person'/ nickname in the blog entry title), the child's home life, or people calling him a thug. And here I thought this place was PC/bedwetter free. Must be a "case by case" basis.

It's also ironic that the mass school shootings haven't been carried out by " thugs" but by those who were " bullied" or who had " a history of mental illness" or came from a " broken home". They were not used as examples to paint an entire race as culturally failing and inferior but victims of a system that didn't " help" the parents deal with problem children.
There's never mention of the white absent,uninvolved father either. It's bad to never marry the mother but ok if you do , leave the mother and start a new family at the expense of your original family.
And, there's no concern about how this young man, who apparently had trouble before, managed to have an " expensive" gun. No one is suggesting he stole it from anyone. It must have magically appeared as all gun owners are responsible.
I hate to break the news to some of you but even in the '50's there were " juvenile delinquents" and babies out of wedlock . Maybe some of you could find some old James Dean or Natalie Wood or young Marlon Brando movies on Netflix and see white teen violence and white troubled youth and white gangs from that era. There are still white gangs by the way. Just ask any prison guard. If a group of white students bully and even kill, that's a " clique" with a someone who is a bad influence not a gang, right?
I'm amazed that none of you knew any " bad seeds" while you were growing up. Some of us remember the kids who were holy terrors and who now are earning lots of money or inherited money and are still bullies and meaner than snakes. We also kids who had it tough and are outstanding citizens in every way.
Could it possibly be time we learned something about raising children, especially when they are adolescents?

11:31 you cannot put a juvenile into the county, or any other, jail. Madison County doesn't have a juvenile detention facility, rather, they lease beds from Yazoo County. a cumbersome arrangement with regard to transport to and from court in Canton, but its been that way for many years.

Anonymous said...

It's much better to help developers with tax breaks than to do anything to prevent crime like having decent juvenile facilities.

@8:19

I was a general contractor for over 40 years. There were many times that I needed the use of a large excavator on jobs, but this piece of equipment was not needed on a daily or even a monthly basis. For that reason I decided not to purchase an excavator but rather rent one when necessary, or, subcontract the work to someone who owned one. That way I didn't have to incur the expense of maintenance, insurance and other expenses that were ongoing whether the equipment was in use or not. This saved a tremendous amount of money over the years. Do you see the correlation?

By the way, your hatred of the Costco project is showing. Get over it!

Anonymous said...

4:2, I think you mean, "...no NUMBER of brick columns...", instead of "...no AMOUNT of brick columns...".

And while there's some jackass incessantly braying, on internet fora, about a supposed preponderance of brick in Madison, and a jackass (possibly the same jackass) braying about "fake columns", having one to bray about "BRICK columns" is something new.

Is there someplace in Madison (someplace I've missed), where all these "brick columns" are to be seen? Or have you been reading about the bricks, and about the columns, and combining these disparate lame brays into one giant megalith of ignorance?

GAK!!!

Where's Donner to clear things up and set us straight??

"Attempted to sell weed to the janitor". I'm sure that probably has a place in this story....just haven't found it yet.

Otis said...

Isn't it strange that Madison County 'rents' bed space to many other counties at it's facility on 51 just south of Canton? Yet it then turns around and rents space in Yazoo for the placement of its youth offenders.

And for the General Contractor at 9:32, do you really believe that youth-offenders are rare and far between in Canton? Probably half the Yazoo facility is occupied by the chicken-wing eaters from Canton.

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.
