And subpoenas Jim Hood. Scorched-earth, Baby!!!

Yup.  The Hinds County District Attorney is trying to subpoena the prosecutor as a witness.  Hinds County D.A. Robert Shuler Smith subpoenaed Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood to testify at his criminal trial that begins today. The A.G. immediately filed a motion to quash the subpoena.

Mr. Hood argued

As stated, it appears that the Defendant intends to solicit testimony from the Attorney General and other witnesses regarding the alleged motivations of the State’s prosecutors and argue to the jury that the prosecution is vindictive, selective, retaliatory or the product of otherwise improper motives. A defense of improper prosecution must be raised pre-trial and is a matter committed to the decision of the trial judge and not the jury....

the Defendant now desires to improperly place the issue of the prosecution’s motive before the jury. “[E]vidence of a prosecutor’s vindictive motive is inadmissible at trial, because a prosecutor’s motive is independent whether a defendant is guilty or innocent.”....

However, the Attorney General subpoenaed Attorney Jim Waide to testify at trial.  Mr. Waide represents Robert Shuler Smith.

Jamie McBride's case dismissed!!!!!!!!

The attempt to pressure Jamie McBride though a criminal indictment into doing something unethical is something that should give every law abiding citizen very real concern. Any of us could be abused in the same way at any time.

2:51 - If McBride is half the lawyer you people think he is, there's no way he would fall for entrapment or coercion. Don'tcha think he would have told them to kiss his ass if he were straight up and not worried and as excellent an esquire as you suggest he is? Of course he would have. If he were innocent and knew there could not possibly be any evidence to the contrary there is no way he would have taken a deal.

Never ever put your fate in the hands of a Hinds County jury, even if you are innocent, if you are white.

7:30 There was no "deal" except McBride said once again as he always said that if called he would testify truthfully. Essentially the AG gave up the witch hunt when it came time for trial. You do not know what happened or what you are talking about.

@ 7:30 You must be a part of the legal team for McSpinless. Well I hope Mr. Jellyfish can hold his head up high knowing that he completely screwed over his friends.

Exactly which friends would that be? You seem to have a hard on for McBride. I suspect you're just jealous that your sad little life doesn't measure up to the good he has done in getting scum off the streets.

10:03, sorry but I have to ask. Are we talking about the same man? It is a very short list of scum that has been removed from the streets. If you will read back that is the reason for all of this bullshit. Scum were buying their way out of jail with the help of people like McBride.
You have two choices. Things happened with his knowledge and help or because of his ignorance and willingness to ignore it.

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.
