So be it. Any loss of life is nothing to celebrate, but this guy looks like a pretty bad dude. One less mouth for the taxpayers to feed for the next 30 years.

Prob self inflicted. Let's be honest death is better than have to choose in which "end" to take "it" everyday.

9:04AM, Jeez it's not like he killed anyone! There's a certain art to burglary. You are often stealing from someone who can afford to buy 4x the amount of what you originally stole. Even Don Corleone had to steal in his early days.

I pray that God has mercy on this man's soul and that his face tats are erased in heaven.

Spoken like a true, super-entitled thief 10:26. Burglary is not art. There's no justification for it - he wasn't stealing a banana from Kroger to survive starvation. He wasn't stealing insulin from a pharmacy because he was about to die from diabetes. Pray all you want, then make sure you show what a great person you really are and go give all your possessions away to the first poor person you see with a bunch of tear drops tattooed to their face to make sure they are not compelled to rob anyone in order to express their "art." -mr37

Do his 3 teardrop tattoos mean he has killed three people?

This is ridiculous! How many deaths does this make at Parchman in how many months???? There's a lot more going on than anyone realizes. There's things between some of the inmates and the guards....threatening other inmates in order to get money and certain guards are making money off of this too, otherwise, they wouldn't let this crap keep continuing to happen. The inmates are forced to call their family members, friends, etc...anybody that will give them the time of day and ask for money to be put on someone's canteen or thru paypal, walmart to walmart, western union, green dots, etc. If the money is not sent within a certain period of time then they beat em up and double the money and are given a few more days to try to get the money. It's a vicious cycle that's never ending. I saw a news report from a mother is hattiesburg going through what I just mentioned. And, from all the deaths that have already happened....the news says they are all being investigated but none ever tell the findings or causes of death. These inmates are the responsibility of the facility that are housing them therefore their health and well being is also their responsibility. It seems that Parchman needs a complete firing and hiring of employees, including the warden. These inmates are not being given any classes or opportunities to work and the A&D program is absolutely the WORST. They have more drugs in that one unit than they do in any of the other units and they definitely aren't being rehabilitated. They hardly ever have any classes, never have drug tests so how in the world they ever graduate from the program is beyond me. They are just taking the state's money and not doing their jobs. Something needs to be done about this but when I tried to ask someone about it, a judge of all people, he said there's really nothing that can be done if we don't want our loved one killed. WTH??? Where to turn to?????

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.
