Shakedown goes down.

The Mississippi Department of Corrections issued the following statement and picture.



MARSHALL COUNTY PRISON TARGET OF NEXT SHAKEDOWN

JACKSON – The third major shakedown in a week by the Mississippi Department of Corrections occurred today at the Marshall County Correctional Facility (MCCF) in Holly Springs.

Bags of spice and marijuana, knives or shanks, tennis shoes, cell phones, cell phone chargers and batteries, and assorted pills were removed from dormitory style housing units and individual cells. Also, crystal meth was found in the body cavity of one inmate.



The confiscated items are similar to, but fewer than, those found at the other two shakedowns at Wilkinson County Correctional Facility in Woodville and East Mississippi Correctional Facility in Meridian, respectively.

All facilities are being searched under a system wide contraband crackdown Commissioner Pelicia Hall has ordered under Operation Zero Tolerance.

“Our unannounced shakedowns are paying off and will continue,” Hall said. “I thank all of the probation and parole agents and correctional officers involved for their extra work to help make MDOC safer for both staff and inmates.”

Hall has extended the renewed security effort to inmates posting on Facebook and the search of visitors and vendors upon entrance to prison grounds.

MCCF, one of the state’s private prisons and the oldest of the current three, has 998 inmates, two shy of its capacity.

He doesn't look as happy at the new lock-up.

Plus, He's sporting a fresh haircut too.

The infusion of fresh meat is always appreciated at CMCF 1A.

Pelecia thanked the probation and parole agents for their help. She should thank the counties where they hve been pulled from. While they are joyriding all over the state and playing cowboy at the prisons who is watching parokes

8:54 you are so right. While she is pulling the probation and parole officers away from their duties of ensuring the communities are safe from the CONVICTED FELONS who have been released from these institutions the communities and its citizens are at risk. The taxpayers deserve much better than this. Contraband should be recovered everyday if Correctional Officers are doing their jobs and if there are enough of them to staff these facilities properly. This is what you get with someone with no experience at the Helm. Hey Pelecia, Where is the press release about the inmate killed while working on the garbage truck? Trying to make a name for yourself by only announcing this kind of stuff is gonna bite you big.

The sad thing is that she resuming practices that Fisher had stopped because she is being wooed by the DC of Community Corrections who is practically salivating at the idea of getting her job. However, She might be named but she would never be confirmed in the Deep South Bible Belt.

How naïve can she be?

11:07 - Try as I may, I just can't make sense of your post.

She resumed something Fisher stopped. Because DC is trying to recruit her. And DC is 'salivating' at getting her job? Huh? And DC is in the Deep South Bible Belt. Or does DC not mean D.C.?

parole and probation officers are a joke. felons report ONCE per month on their own, and in some cases that's by a telephone call. the officers rarely actually go out in the community to see where the felon is actually llving. they rarely verify employment or schooling.

perhaps its different in more rural and isolated areas, but every jurisdiction I've ever worked, they are underpaid, lazy, and virtually useless...

Not sure what area you are talking about or which state. However in MS they carry caseloads much larger than is recommended by national standards. You are possibly correct that they cant make employment visits on every offender (I am not clear why you verify school with adult offenders and they should no longer be in public schools after felony convictions). Your adjectives of underpaid and lazy are both contradictory to each other. However, I have found them to be of the utmost assistance full of information and hardworking virtually 24/7. I do agree they are underpaid. However when you have a Commissioner pulling them from there duties to virtually conduct cell searches so she can try and appear effective you do have a community left at risk and maybe making it appear they are not doing the job the State Code defines.

6:50, it's possible that DC could mean Deputy Commissioner, and maybe this particular DC has something about him/her that might make the voters anxious. That's the way I took it, although I wish 11:07 would just spell it on out.

I believe 11:07 is referring to DC as the Deputy Commissioner. 11:07 I think Fisher basically threw Hall to the wolves when he left her there with all of Epps crew still in charge. Not sure who wants Hall's job but it will be interesting to watch the internal turmoil that has now been created.

Great, they're tossing prison cells, and searching vendors and visitors. Still not addressing the main source of contraband, the guards.

Not sure I've ever agreed with Pitty-Pander, but this time I do. Keep bailin' that water but don't worry about pluggin' the hole.

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.
