Can somebody explain the difference between escaping and blessing?

This is just the beginning of these Inmates bringing Attention to Victor Masons Jail mismanagement of the jail.

They did the same thing to Tyrone.

Your done STUPID. You know your reading this Victor. Don't embarrass yourself and run again, but that ego of yours just can't resist it.

Victor doesn't have a clue anyway and Pete Luke is running the show and he's in the weeds too..

Another example of Victors Mason putting people in place who have No Clue. Pete Luke has never went thru MELOTA and has been civilian Administration his whole career at Hinds. A short time on Patrol at Madison P.D then Administration again.

Absolutely Laughable..Keep it Victor!

Pete Luke was given the certification without going to the training Academy. Given from Jimmy Houston. An earned certificate by so many. And now he is ruining the SO

@1:21, Pete was give it at Hinds thru a special Legislative session along with 2 others, during McMillan last term, in case he wasn't re elected, he could land somewhere and finish off his PEERS time.

Looks like it worked..but nobody respects you Pete Luke.

I don't think any Jail Administrator or Sherifff wants escapes from their jail, however as a former jail worker, I'd bet my 13th check someone was sleeping while they were supposed to be watching and listening. I worked at the downtown and Raymond locations. You can hear an inmate fart or even a rat run across the floor that early in the morning, if you're not sleeping. As for the jail workers, sometimes you pay for what you get. Pay and Train your officers! It ain't the Sheriff or the Jail Administrators job to watch the correctional deputies. If you don't like the Sheriff or any elected official, vote them out the next election. As for the three inmates that escaped (walked away), "they ain't smart enough to elude capture". Just pray they don't hurt anyone while on the run.

This shows only one inmate but a total of three escaped. Also I understand they were gone for well over 24 hours before anyone noticed. Wow

I'm updating the post to state the correct number of escapees. MDOC sent out a press release that only stated one escapee. The HCSO refuses to include this website on its email distribution list despite repeated requests over the last year that it do so. Thus sometimes JJ does not always have the latest information. Our apologies.

So where are the Feds? I thought they along with the HCBOS had come to some type of agreement to keep the citizens safe from escaped inmates. I hear Pete Luke thumbs his nose at that agreement. It's looking as if the Mason Inn is no safer than the Lewis Lodge was. If Victor could refrain from preying on female employees he might have time to do his job and use our tax dollars to make jail improvements rather than settle law suits. Funny the more things change the more they stay the same.

The jail has been the jail for years and years. Victor took a page out of Mac's book by keeping the folks in the dark as to what is going on in the jail. If not for MDOC we would not have known about this escape as there has been escapes that have not been reported by Victor.

You may not have liked who Lewis put in place to run the SO but at least they did have law enforcement training and were certified officers, unlike Pete Luke.

Kingfish these folks are not going to give you access because you will report the truth and this they do not want.

There's some serious, yet very preventable things being reported that go on at this facility. Contraband from just about anyone who can get any in it seems. People basically just walking out of the jail, unchecked, hardly any effort needed to break out apparently. Sexual harassment allegations against those at the helm indicate character and judgment problems which mean you probably should NOT oversee offenders. As reported, if the MDOC had NOT reported this, the society at large probably would not know what has transpired at our jail. While low pay is a problem, apparently you can't hire the foxes to watch the hen house folks. We need people of integrity and hard knock discipline to run these facilities, yet not be brutal.

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.
