#1: Father killed in front of son.

JPD issued the following press release:

On Monday, January 2, 2017, at approx. 6:55 PM, Jackson Police Officers responded to Center St. near Oak Park Dr. regarding a shooting. Upon officers’ arrival, it was learned that a black male, later identified as Horatio Hunt, Sr.-37, sustained multiple gunshot wounds. He succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased on scene. Shortly thereafter, officers responded to UMMC regarding a subject arriving at the emergency room via private vehicle after being shot. He was later identified as Horatio Hunt, Jr.-19. He was shot once in the ear and listed in stable condition.

During the course of the investigation, it was learned that both victims were in a vehicle near the

IF POVERTY breeds crime, why is West Virginia so low in crime?

Poverty does not breed crime. Irresponsibility, lack of personal accountability, absentee parenting and greed breed crime.

But, back to this report. How many perps were there? Are the two mentioned the same person or two separate thugs? The report is unclear as to whether Bae Bae and the other guy are the same or two separate pussies. Even at that, does it matter?

It was at 65 on 12-8-16 but that was before the three men were killed at one time. I think there were a couple of more killed after that.

@1:09...I am sick of hearing this bullshit about "poverty breeds crime". I was one of 6 kids raised on a less than affluent farm. We had no indoor bathroom and I was embarrassed for the kids that lived in their nice Jim Walter houses to see where I lived.

I did not feel "poor"...I just felt undercapitalized. Five of us finished college. Three of us got advanced degrees (MS, M.D., and DVM)....but our brother that did not finish college made more money in real estate than the rest of us put together. We all worked on the farm and on through school. We didn't sit on the freakin' porch feeling sorry for ourselves and trying to figure how to rob someone.

Here Here Cap'n!

Poverty more often breeds responsibility and enterprise and goals and the struggle to achieve. Poverty breeds success.

Those who accept the notion that society is responsible for crime because society allows poverty are full of crap.

Idle hands breed crime.

Jackson is LOST.

10:17, I agree completely. Poverty and criminals have nothing in common.
Criminals always want a reason for breaking the law. Poverty is always a good one. My upbringing was much like yours. I can remember helping my father put in running water in our home, cold water only. No telephone. We went to the local grocery store and used their phone if we ever had to make a phone call.
I was one of eight children. All finished high school and went on to college. My first job paid $3 per week.
Take a real good look at some of the poor criminals. Their shoes cost more than all of the clothes I owned when I was young. The cost of their cell phone per month would have fed my entire family for the month.

You people can't even figure out how many damned killings there have been in Jacktown in 2015? Shit!

Can't really blame people for not knowing how many people were killed in Jackson. JPD keeps changing the rules. Maybe they decided some of the people murdered actually needed killing and should not count against them. Maybe they don't have anyone working in JPD that can count above 21. After all they have just so many toes and fingers.

Dave's not here said...

i was trying for 80

7:42, Dave, you may have made 80 easily. No one will ever really know. We will not get an honest count from the city and no one outside really cares as long as it is those inside who were killed and who were the killers.

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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
