JPD issued the following press release:

On Sunday, November 27, 2016, at approx. 2:35 AM, Jackson Police Officers responded to the area of Mill St. near Cohea St. regarding an unidentified black male lying behind a building. A concerned citizen observed him and notified police. The subject was unconscious and appeared to have serious injuries that were consistent with an assault. He was transported to UMMC via AMR for medical treatment and listed in serious condition. The victim, later identified as Timothy Townsend, 35, succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday, November 29, 2016. He was pronounced deceased at UMMC.

During the course of the investigation, it was learned that Saturday, November 26, 2016, at approx. 9:15 PM, the victim was operating a silver 2005 Nissan Altima in the area of Deer Park St. near Rose St. There was a front passenger in the vehicle with him. Allegedly, he was involved in a motor vehicle accident at this location with a white Chevy Tahoe occupied by two unidentified black males. There was an altercation between the victim and the two occupants of the Tahoe and allegedly, the victim was forced into the Tahoe and driven away to an undisclosed
location. There was no further contact made with the victim after this occurred. The Nissan Altima was later towed as an abandoned vehicle by responding officers.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is urged to contact police at 601-960-1234 or 601-355-TIPS. This is the city’s 62nd homicide investigation for 2016

At one a day, we can hit 95 by January 1.
That's right, bedwetters, cold and callous.

no matter where you may live, this is a very troubling trend. Jackson has perhaps the weakest leadership in Mississippi and the law enforcement sector is so incompetent that it is laughable.......except it is not funny. They have to quit playing the race card and victim card and hitch their belts up and go to work. It can easily spiral out of control in this vacuum of leadership. If they do not take charge of their city it will be another Detroit in five years. Detroit is a cemetery with lights. This is serious business and the time for games is over.

Found that below in the JJ archives from 2009. Do not know if any years since then have surpassed those listed.

Top Years for Jackson Murder:
1995 = 92
1994 = 91
1993 = 84
1991 = 76
2008 = 73
1996 = 67

9:59, the JPD is not "incompetent." The other pieces of Jackson law enforcement do fit the description.

Not only are JPD incompetent, they are crooked. How many of JPD's finest have been arrested for committing crimes? I will agree that the other pieces of Jackson law enforcement are also incompetent.

Fantastic! Great to see Jackson residents doing their part to make the City a safer place.

Hell has frozen. I agree with Burke.

Every time I've called JPD their response has been outstanding.
The young men and women in the field are are to be commended.
There are bad apples in every profession.

11:51 you are a complete asshole.

3:01, the crime rate in Jackson is higher than Detroit. If the cops are doing such a great job how could this be? Have you ever checked into the number of JPD that lost their job because of criminal behavior?

After watching Jackson decline for the past five decades (that is 50 years for you jsu grads) I moved north to the promise land. I am sorry that I held on as long as I did. I noticed this week that the house I grew up in (near McWille Elementary School) sold for $12,000.00 US....What I find unbelievable is those of you that think that things are just fine in Jackson.

JPD is a joke and employs far more criminals than honest people. When I needed them, it took them over an hour to respond. I have as much faith in JPD to do good, honest work as I have in the bum on the side of the street.

Moron at 3:42
The cops don't get involved until, and unless, some scumbag does something to bring them into the equation. The police don't prevent crime, they clean up after the crime has been committed.
Police that have lost their job because of criminal behavior? Really? Have you ever checked the number of retail employees that have lost their jobs, and freedom, for stealing from the store? Number of pharmacists, nurses and doctors that have lost their jobs for sampling the inventory? As I said, there are bad apples in EVERY profession.
11:51, 3:42 & 5:45 are clearly the same complete asshole and total lier.
The times that I've called JPD, officers have been at my house in less than 5 minutes. The officers have been professional and thorough.
I've lived in Jackson all my life (63 years). I've lived through all the ups and downs. That anti-police troll asshole can kiss my ass.

I don't feel incompetent, maybe something I failed to realize. There are a few that don't belong in the PD period, for the most part there are some intelligent people at JPD. This is a difficult job and at 31,000 and change sometime loses quality people. I believe these Officers/Detectives are doing the best they can with what they have. JPD is underfunded and there isn't a reprieve in sight.

Maybe that is what many JPD officers are doing, supplementing their income. They chose a profession that does not pay well and have decided committing crimes is a way to supplement their incomes.
Anyone remember a little while back when several of JPD"s finest were using their own trucks to hook on to and steal trailers, tools, and equipment. Had them on film along with their own customized trucks. It took JPD quite a while to decide the trucks in the pictures were the same ones parked in their own parking lot.

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.
