"Firm but Fair" for wife-beater?

Wife-beatin' apparently is a-ok in Jackson.  Jackson Municipal Court Judge Ali Shamsid-Deen didn't fine nor imprison one David L. Archie for domestic violence. Jackson police arrested Mr. Archie for domestic violence on September 7, 2016.  His wife contacted JPD on September 3.  The report states:

Officer Juliana Chisholm IBM 1789 met the complainant in the driveway of her home. The complainant gave the officer a statement she had already typed, dated and signed. The complainant stated the incident happened when she walked into the house after returning from a party on September 2, 2016 at 1145 hours. She stated the suspect jumped up yelling at her about a photo that was sent to his phone. The complainant stated the suspect refused to show her the photo and then the suspect wanted to see her phone. The complainant stated she told the suspect no and he began to punch her multiple times. The complainant attempted  to get her phone  from her purse and the suspect put her in a choke hold. The officer observed heavy bruising scratches and red markings just behind her left shoulder. The complainant did not want AMR and the children were at home but asleep in bed. The complainant said she waited until the suspect went to work and then she went to signs charges on him. She didn't know she had to have a case number.
He was arrested on September 7:

Mr. Archie was booked but Judge Shamsid-deen released him without requiring a bond. The case went to Judge Shamsid-deen a month later.  The Judge Shamsid-deen did not fine nor imprison Mr. Archie but did order him and his wife to participate in family counseling.  The court abstract is posted below.

Kingfish note: This case is a perfect example of why Mississippi is a horrible place for victims of domestic violence.  Mrs. Archie comes home, suffers the abuse, and calls the police.   It takes courage for a woman to do that because she has to live with the abuser, he controls the finances, you know the drill.  This woman comes to the criminal justice system for help.  The police did its job. Then Judge Shamsid-dunce gets his hands on the case.  The abuser is turned loose- he doesn't even have to post a bond.  Call it a Get Out of Jail Free Phone Call.  Mr. Firm But Fair then convicts him of a misdemeanor but imposes no fine or incarceration on Mr. Archie.  Of course, this is the same judge who gave a $50,000 bond to Deryl Dedmon after he killed James Anderson.

Firm but fair indeed.

Pacino and De Niro in the cafe in Heat. Nicholson and Huston in Chinatown. Nicholson talking to his mute father in Five Easy Pieces. Sometimes it's the quiet, understated scene that moves us the most.

Perhaps he's basing his rulings on sharia law???

Yea yea the "poor womyn" bit from ole Kingfish the baby boomer. Understand this dude: woman can go to college free, because they are women, they qualify for free business starting grants, because they are women, they benefit from affirmative actions, because..... Meanwhile, since I am an evil white male if I want to go to law school I have to become a slave to a bank.

All she has to do is yank the chain, she gets half his money and all his children. Not because of "abuse" but because she is a woman.

The only intermarriage abuse I see is women psychologically abusing their husbands. These evil men work too much, or they don't make enough money (read lazy). It seems like even my preacher is getting on this crap train. The assault is totally relentless and despicable.

About the only thing a girl born after 1980 is good for is to f@3k 'em and feed em beans.

That gray and white cat was a good acting partner for Brando - was present in the scene, but didn't steal focus.

Goodness, 2:23. She abused you and left you totally broke, didn't she? Must have found a real man.

I'm a Baby Boomer? News to me.

Don't worry 2:23, with wit like that, you are in no danger of any of the things on your list happening to you.

Is this the same David L. Archie that would run his big mouth on the Kim Wade show and would always say' "Low-down dirty white folks"?

This was obviously a setup by the enemies of freedom, justice, and black self-determination. Fortunately, the future circuit court judge saw through the charade and set things right. David Archie must be free to continue the struggle. (And sell some pretty good fried chicken.)

Not doubt a quid pro quo for Archie's support of Shamsid-deen's campaigns.

You need a blow-up doll, so when you feel the need to slap her around, you don't have to worry about charges or 'losing all your stuff' in a divorce.

You are no man, I can tell you that.

2:32 - a little trivia for ya - that was stray cat that wandered onto the set.

I didn't know that, 5:52. A stray that got his big show biz break - I love it! Thanks!

2:23 pm Once colleges and universities became gender blind in their acceptance process , they didn't have to accept women on any basis except merit. Women out perform men academically.
I was in graduate school with men who thought like you. I graduated and they didn't . The reason is their personality disorders kept them from being able to think rationally.
It's not the people around you keeping you from succeeding and having a happy life. It's you.
If anyone told you that you didn't get in law school because of women, they were just trying to placate you because you scared them.

Wait....I think the real question is what was she doing out of the kitchen?

She probably went in and asked to drop the charges because she's still in love and stupid, and instead of doing that, the judge decided they should just do counseling if they are gonna stay together.

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.
