I hope this wasn't the employee of the McDowell Rd Metro PCS store that shot at the robbers. Could be the home boys didn't appreciate him shooting at them and they tracked him down.

Death toll will be 61 by thanksgiving evening. These are animals and have no respect for life. I think you will agree.

"very critical", "No known motive", "the fire is under investigation". Who writes this stuff? Is Colendula back on the desk?

While reportedly driving a car, a man who is subsequently and allegedly shot multiple times or more, gonna be hitting a nearby tree pretty much right away. So, even the most dense among us (irregardless of how dense them trees was)will be able to conclude, from the evidence, that the crowd that 'pull him from the ride) do probably include the shooter(s). So, therefore and in conclusion, it were a good idea if all of them in the immediate area was detain for questions.

That car is beat all to hell and back. Notice rear bumper missing, sidelight lens missing, multiple dents. Most telling, perhaps, is the fact that the gasoline door is popped, which must be done from inside the vehicle. Could this be how the fire was set?

attn 5:43 or Oyster Dressing. Thanks for your thoughtful insight. By the way, are you a product of the Jackson school system? Your excellent use of the written word gave you away.

Attn 5:43 For those of us less educated than you, what does "irregardless" mean?

Thank you, at 5:43 AM.
Your "very critical" analysis is not intelligent. If it was meant to be humorous it is not.

Do any of you grammar nazi's know the record number of deaths in Jackson for one one year?

Attn 7:53 We will not have the figures on the largest number of annual murders in jackson until January 1, 2017. Another feather in the cap for the current administration. If you can't fill a pot hole, how would you be expected to curve violence. P.S. Move to the suburbs.

Curve violence?

7:53, I don't know "the record number of deaths in Jackson for one one year", but I am positive the number is quite high. Every year people die from long term illnesses, car accidents....but wait, my guess is that you are referring to the record number of MURDERS in Jackson for one year. Quick search did not give me the answer to that question but, like you, I also would like to see some data.

As for "grammar nazi's [sic]", if someone really wants their written word to be understood/taken seriously then their writing should be as clear and concise as possible. Long sentences and lack of punctuation/proper grammar are not good.

It's probably apparent that I tend to be a grammar nazi. Oh, well....

From the year 2002-2014 the record number of murders in one year is 63 in 2012 which is about 9 times the national average.

Chicago has had 685 murders this year. Chicago is 15.75 times as large as Jackson. This being said, if CHICAGO had the same murder ratio as Jackson, it would have had 929 murders to date 2016. Your odds of getting killed in Jackson are 1 and a half times your odds of getting killed in Chicago. This is not going away.

"Attn 5:43 For those of us less educated than you, what does "irregardless" mean? "

It's a colloquialism, used the same way as "regardless".

Just as with "flammable" and "inflammable"; reasonably intelligent people can understand what the speaker meant.

And I'm too busy today to run any of those words through dictionary.com to satisfy the anal-retentive types on this board. If there's a typo there, so be it. As our soon to be Commander-in-Chief is so fond of saying, "whatever". Just ask Me-Again Kelly.

I was infatuated with the death count in the mid 1990s.

It almost hit 100 several years in a row but never quite made it.

Then murders decreased quite rapidly...because of the how they classified and reported murders.

So without manipulation of data the best answer is ~ 💯 is the highest number of murders the city of Jackson has seen and it was around 1995 or so.

6:54 and 7:20 are as dense as the pines on Belvedere. Can't recognize a little local humor when it pops them upside their thick heads. There is a lot of troof in the post at 5:43, irregardless (and notwithstanding) your inability to root it out.

Thanks for stepping into the rope-trap and being flung high up into a sapling by your ankles.

The record number was 98 I believe. IT occurred right before Harvey Johnson became mayor and during his first 5 months. The "numbers" you must be referring to are the method Mayor Ditto switched in keeping stats -- to conform to the FBI method. This mainly concerned grand theft, etc. Never homocide. The Linder-Maple Study was permormed somewhere around 1999 and 2000. Many of its recommendations have not been implemented. All stats and procedures were tossed out the window during Melton, along with accountability for money and personnel. Nationally the murder rate was receding until the Occupy Movements along with BLM and an increase in violent entertainment were experienced nationally -- an increase in murder has accompanied this national trend. Almost all crime in Jackson involves drugs. Almost all gang activity involves drug distribution or use.

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.
