Young woman kidnapped & held for 3 days

JPD issued the following statement:

On Wednesday, October 19, 2016, at approx. 11:03 PM, Jackson Police Officers responded to the 1000 block of McCluer Rd. regarding a kidnapping. Upon officers’ arrival, it was learned that an unidentified Latino female, 19; was located in the roadway begging for help. The victim was allegedly kidnapped at gunpoint on Monday, October 17, 2016, at approx. 9:00 PM while walking in the Capital St. area. The suspect was identified as a black male (“Chris”), operating a gray Ford Crown Victoria. He allegedly approached the victim, armed with a handgun and demanded she get into his vehicle. He drove her to a residence in the 1000 block of McCluer Rd. where she was allegedly held against her will, barricaded in the bathroom of the residence. She was able to escape and seek help.

The residence where this incident occurred was located and secured by officers and detectives. The victim was transported to UMMC for observation. There were no serious injuries involved. This is an ongoing investigation.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident and/or the location or identity of the suspect is urged to contact the Jackson Police Department at 601-960-1234 or 601-355-TIPS (8477.)

Kingfish note: That was the JPD press release.  Now look at how the local media reported the description of a suspect who is ARMED AND DANGEROUS AND ON THE LOOSE!!!

Clarion-Ledger: a man named Chris in a gray Crown Victoria pulled a gun on her and forced her into the car. (What is missing from this information?)

WLBT:   Police say her attacker was driving a gray Ford Crown Victoria. He's been identified as 32-year-old Marcus Butler. Neighbors describe him as tall dark and slender. They say he often wears a neon security vest, and is in and out all times of day. (Good job, Dave)

WAPT: The woman said she was walking in the Capitol Street area at 9 p.m. Monday when a man in a gray Ford Crown Victoria approached her with a gun and forced her into the vehicle, police said. The man took the woman to a house in the 1000 block of McCluer Road, where the woman was locked in a bathroom, police said. (Good job, Ross. It's what we expect of you.)

WJTV: Posted suspect's picture.

Sure would have helped if they would have added the race of the person who was armed, dangerous, and on the loose.

Gasper Goo said...

So.....was he 'Chris' or 32-year-old Marcus Butler? What reasoning do the local meadia outlets have for not identifying suspects and perps by race?

The CL started this crap several years ago. Hadn't paid attention to the TV stations, but evidently they have decided that race is not an important descriptor as well.

CL has reported height, weight, hair color and other information before, still leaving out the race.

Why in the hell they think this is appropriate - or even pc - is beyond comprehension. I don't think it has anything to do with the fact that most people probably assume this fact - but if that was it that ought to do a proper job of reporting to shut down that assumption.

At least kudos to JPD for recognizing that this is an important descriptor when trying to find a perp.

Law enforcement has always used race as an identifier. They use B/M for black male and W/F for white female, etc.

The Clarion-Ledger has refused for a really long time (more than a few years) to release the race of a person who is wanted for any reason. Absolutely stupid decisions. The single greatest identifier is race, then sex, then age,
height, weight, hair, facial hair, clothing, tatoos, etc.

Why don't the just call him a #1 male like they do on The Wire?

Lookin Back Troof!.. said...

in 1969, Department of Labor work application forms used these identifiers which were entered by the staff member:

W - White
NW/N - Non White Negro
NW/A - Non White Asian

The Clarion staff would shit! Oh the horrors! Where is my safe space? Help me get to it quickly!

I got my saturday clarion ledger this morning and my high school newspaper had more pages than this rag. If they didn't include the USA Today portions, I believe the wind would have blown it away before I could go outside and get it.

This is the very reason I have cancelled my life long subscription to the Clarion Ledger. Also known as the Clarion Liar. They are good for lining the bottom of my sister's birdcage. As for the TV stations I will have to choose or just rely on Jackson Jambalaya.

Heck she's lucky it's only three days. I know women still being held up in Eastover years later.

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.

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.
