D.A.'s defenders speak out.

Defenders of embattled Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith spoke out about his Rankin County indictments at a press conference yesterday.  Othor Cain posted this video on his Facebook page:

All the Kingfish will say is the AG better have a good case against Mr. Smith.  There better be witnesses, video, photographs, or other physical evidence and not just some affidavit signed by an ex-girlfriend.  There is some controversy raised over why Mr. Smith was indicted nearly two years after the alleged incident took place.  The victim supposedly reported her case first to the FBI.  There is no telling how long that case sat with the Fibbies until they turned it over to the AG.  The feds are notorious for taking their time on everything - see the Chris Epps case.  The AG is not going to make his evidence public until trial and everyone calling on him to show his case knows it.

Rankin-Madison District Attorney Michael Guest probably would not have taken the case anyway since it involves a fellow District Attorney.  A District Attorney probably would refer such a case to the Attorney General due to the fact they are in neighboring districts and at times have to collaborate on prosecutions. 

However, keep in mind that it was Mr. Smith, not Mr. Hood, who first tried to use his office to throw prosecutors in jail.  It was Mr. Smith who tried cage two A.G. prosecutors for six months on bogus charges. Earlier post. Mr. Smith's defenders forget that little fact.  He also tried to sic a grand jury on Judge Weill when he couldn't get his way in court instead of appealing the decisions he didn't like to a higher court as is his right under the law.  Thus when these people complain about persecutions instead of prosecutions, they should remember that there is some unclean hands on their side.    The D.A. decide to go screw with the A.G. and so the A.G. is screwing with him right back and that, my friends.... do I even need to finish that sentence?

So here are the arguments these people made to dismiss the charges:

- They don't like what's happening
- Robert Shuler Smith is a friend of theirs
- Smith was involved with prosecuting James Craig Anderson's killers
- Smith's grandfather (the late Reverend Awruh L.T. Smith) fought for civil rights
- Jim Hood wants to be governor and is using this for political capital
- Jim Hood doesn't want RSS to be AG and is using this to stop him
- The incident happened in 2015 and that's two whole years ago
- The media told RSS about the indictment

Notice that no one said Smith is innocent.

This is an excellent argument for additional funding for Jackson Public Schools!

Don't know that more money for the Jackson public schools would help this bunch. The collective IQ for the speakers (Reeves, Higgenbottom, Johnson, Pittman and the Rev.) probably just barely breaks double digits. RSS needs to think thru this situation; if this was my group of friends, I think I would rather take prison.

As a resident of NE Jackson I would like to say everyone on this video is a complete embarrassment to our city and the state. Who cares if your a friend or if his father was a civil rights leader. Live in the present.

So Bob "Higginbottom" is back as a spokesperson for Robert Schuler Smith. He is the one of Melton fame who constantly told exaggerated lies on radio during Melton's campaign. Now Charlotte Reeves has jumped in. Of course, Mrs. Pittman is in the middle of almost any anti-group trying to "make Jackson better". I find it odd that this group wants to march rather than let the courts work through the matter. The behavior of the DA is certainly questionable and has been for some time. He seem erratic and unable to prosecute those who should be and has caused furor needlessly. I am seeing a common thread in some of this and it is spelled d.r.u.g.s. Have no idea why Congressman is being accused of orchestrating the whole mess.

At the end of the day, it's sad that tax dollars and resources are being just for public officials to fight each other. RSS was wrong for going after the Ag's people. The AG was wrong for saying "two can fight like this". All the while, Mississippi stays bottom last in nearly every pole that ranks quality of life.

Also, this should serve as a reminder for the need for criminal justice reform. Prosecutors should not be able to use an indictment and threat of jail for payback.

Its clear to me that DA Guest and AG Hood are collaborating to have RSS convicted, disbarred and remove from office. And I like how Kingfish bringing up the idea that "it was Mr. Smith, not Mr. Hood, who first tried to use his office to throw prosecutors in jail." That has nothing to do with this. You are just trying to make it seem like RSS was picking a fight with Hood. All RSS did in previous incident you refer to is try to get rightful control of prosecutions going on in his county where he was elected to prosecute!

Did Mr. Higginbottom actually say that this is "a new form of slavery"?

Slavery was ended over 150 years ago. LET IT GO!!

I am a long time republican, but this is enough to at least make me take a good look at Hood for governor.

The rumor that RSS was beating up his Rankin County girlfriend has floated around the community for a couple years now. The only surprise is that it took this long to charge him with the crime. The guy is unhinged and needs to just walk away, possibly into a rehab center.

It's hard to take these people seriously.

Was David Archie the handler or only paid for a non-speaking part?

Call it the Rule of the Stupid. Ineva the Idiot, Higgie Poo, et al.

JFT: You can lie better than that. That's not even a bad lie.

Usual suspects. They want certain people in law enforcement who will not enforce the law on certain people.

And what is this inherited virtue or vice bullshit? RSS can assault his girlfriend and get a pass because his grandfather was in the NAACP, but others have to pay reparations because their grandfather was alive during Jim Crow.

Kush will be an incredibly lawless nation.

What a wonderful video. Two of my absolute favorite people - because their idiotic actions and statements always make me realize that no matter what stupid people one has to deal with in daily life, there is always someone that is much worse.

Charlotte Reeves and I.M Pittman. Can't decide which one makes the most ridiculous statements and never, never goes away. Worse than a case of teenage acne, these two pop up daily with their ugly, racist, stupid commentary.

The others add to the comedy, but Rev Williams, and Malcolm, and Bob just are ego-driven, think they are important nobodies. But Charlotte is a special kind of redhead. And Ms Pittman makes Kennuf appear to have some degree of intelligence.

2:06 pm Inherited virtue only works if your father made a lot of money that was passed to you. It works even better if you donated large amounts to charity for tax purposes.
If you either love covfefe or ,you don't but it's still covfefe despite the source.

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.
