Birds of a feather....

The Mississippi Department of Corrections issued the following statement.

State Escapee Captured with 2 Wanted Felons

State inmate Melody Diana Maher, who escaped while on a work detail in downtown Jackson nearly a week ago, is now back in custody. Maher, 24, #189661, was captured at 1:45 p.m. today at a Vicksburg apartment by officers with MDOC’s Corrections Investigation Division (CID) and the U.S. Marshals Service.

Probationer Steven Heigle, 34, and parolee Jerry Brady Weed, 35, were arrested with Maher. Both were already wanted by MDOC on unrelated charges but could face additional charges in connection with Maher’s escape.

Heigle, #163471, was released on probation on Feb. 19, 2016. He received a total of seven years to serve for two felony DUI convictions in Sharkey County.

Weed, #100442, was released on parole on Nov. 8, 2016. He received a total of three years for possession of a controlled substance in Sharkey County and two years for possession of amphetamine in Hinds County.

Maher also faces charges in her escape. She had been missing since May 25 when she fled from outside the Mississippi Prison Industries Corp. (MPIC) office on North State Street. Maher has been in prison since last year for two drug convictions. She received a total of 15 years to serve for controlled substance within a facility and cocaine possession in DeSoto County.

Vicksburg Police Department, Warren County Sheriff’s Department, and Sharkey County Sheriff’s Department assisted MDOC.

Which way did he go, George?

Curious about well-reasoned people's thoughts on this. Discuss--

Taking into consideration:
-cost effectiveness
-increased risk / danger to society
-probability for individual offender rehabilitation
-deterrence to others in committing similar crime

Years in jail for multiple DUI convictions vs alternatives. Years in jail for personal possession of controlled substances.

Forgot the intellectual discussion, Wow. I agree that she's kinda cute in this pic, but some of her other mugshots aren't so flattering. Maybe she only looks this good when she's been clean for a while.

The mugshots do range from pretty hot to pretty scary. Drugs will F you up!

White trash druggie jailbird plucks her eyebrows and takes a bath. Suddenly she's "kinda cute".

Some guys can't stop thinking with the small head.

Small head says she is indeed cute.

Wow said...

Haha, fair enough.

Survey says 93% of men who show up at health department for penicillin and blue star ointment tell the treating nurse that 'she were kinda cute'. And their next comment is, "Hope you ain't gonna tell my wife 'bout this."

15 yrs seems like an awful lot.

I'd hit it.

A phrase used by guys who get it maybe twice a year, and then only when the wife has had a particular good weigh-in at Jenny Craig.

The phrase, "you'd be eating alone in a women's prison," applies here.

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.
