Replay: The Kenneth Fairley Sentencing

More than a few people are rejoicing over the fact that the Reverend Kenneth Fairley now resides in the pokey.  JJ dug up an audio recording of his sentencing for those who want to listen to it.  The recording is posted below.  His statement to the court begins at 2:05 and the judge's sentencing is around 2:30 (hours:minutes).  Enjoy.

About time!!!! I applaud what law enforcement did in this case. The Rev has gotten away with too much over the years. Glad to see the Feds and State work together to put him away. Wish it was for longer, but at least Hattiesburg residents will not have to deal with him for a little while.

Finally got punished. Don't know him personally, and I'm sure he has helped people in his community, but it is clear that he has also "helped" himself. Marcus Dupree's swindling was just the first that came out.

Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing.

I wish him the best of luck. However, he did the crime, so now its time to do the time.

He'll do a little time, get out, claim the lord spoke to him in his jailcell, start a non-profit LLC and bilk the suckers all over again.

Count on it!

He spoke of desegregating schools, yet he does not mention the fact that he started a private school for blacks only.

Something else I know of because I saw it myself was at a basketball game he purposely tripped a player from the opposing team to prevent him from scoring a fast break basket. When I threw him out he stood up and said do you know who I am. I said yes but I am the man in charge here and you are gone. Not the example that young people needed to be seeing.

The same people who supported him before will do so again when he gets out. Happens every time.

@8:41 a book could be written about all of the awful, unethical, illegal, unconscionable things he's done the past 35 years.

Also, he's allegedly quite ill. Inoperable cancer, maybe. Hopefully he will rot and die in prison.

Hattiesburg is one of the most corrupt cities in the state, and Fairley is right in the middle of it. Rumor is Fairley and Charles Bolton (the Forrest Co. Chief Deputy recently convicted of income tax evasion) were low hanging fruit rounded up in a larger, still ongoing investigation.

This guy is as dirty as they come.

Star Rider - correct all the way. Hattiesburg under Mayor Dupree, along with his wife, Fairley, Plukey (Dep Charles Bolton), and many many others - have screwed the city and its citizens for too long and maybe it might be coming to a head. Understand Plukey's sentencing has been put off (was supposed to be earlier this week) because he is singing - all five verses with the chorus.

Going to be interesting to see who all might get caught up in the web - understand there are going to be people from all walks of life, not just the scumbags associated with Dupree around City Hall.

Indeed, the Hattiesburg corruption crosses the color line. A Federal judge (Walter Nixon) was brought down due to Hattiesburg corruption. Then there was the plane over the Gulf of Mexico with local attorneys on board, but one (Bill Porter) mysteriously disappeared and was presumed dead, his wife left with young children to raise on her own.

It will be interesting to see how all of the dots are connected with the present day cast of corrupt characters, particularly with Plukey singing. Old Hattiesburg is holding its breath and hoping the local syndicate will be brought down once and for all.

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.
