No more misdemeanor bookings in Raymond unless you are a drunk or a wife-beater.

The Raymond Detention Center will no longer accept prisoners who are arrested for misdemeanor charges.  The new policy does not apply to DUI and Domestic Violence arrests.  The memo is posted below.

Havn't we been here before? Didn't this move increase crime in Jackson because they knew we had no where to put them. How can the so called "agreement" allow this? More info needed.

Seems to me its past time for Jackson to have their own jail. This "experiment" of county/city for 20+ years just has not worked.

Just another step too Victors demise. Soon he'll lose the jail, he's losing staff, can't get new applicants and the BOS isn't giving him...eeerrr ( Pete Luke ) any more money.

Bye bye Victor!

There're all in the weeds and begging for the DOJ to take the jail.
Mark this comment, he WILL NOT BE IN COMPLIANT IN October.

VICTORS never There, Now! Everybody knows he lies directly to your face to avoid confrontation and is allowing Pete Luke to run the S.O and spend money on anything and everything except jailers salaries.

Hinds Board of Supervisors will not increase budget to hire more staff as required by DOJ. Is the current amount of money provided to HCSO enough to staff as needed? Seems BOS thinks so. Does anyone know the number and/or have a copy of the budget? If so - bring it out and lay it on the table for the taxpayers of the county to see. This standoff serves no one and is just moving a piece on the game board while the board is smoldering at the edges.

Where is the accountability? Why have neither of the entities communicated to the tax payers? A good question to ask both parties.

If there is a restriction on the numbers of inmates the jail can now hold, it seems any halfway competent Sheriff and county administration would know that such information should be distributed in confidence to judges and law enforcement, not to the general public. Certainly there should be no memo saying some perps will not be incarcerated. If you must run off at the mouth,say they'll be evaluated on a "case by case basis" or something similar, but do not give anybody reason to believe they won't go to jail for committing crime.

10:52: I agree with you, except the hood is wired and the tin-can telephone system is long gone. First dude that gets a pass is going to tweet his buddies and they are gonna tweet their friends and in just a few hours the entire "community" is going to know. Game over.

Don't miss the play here. By not helping with budget Hinds BOS are begging for a Federal beatdown about the jail. Begging as is hoping for, seeking, wanting a beatdown. Hinds BOS knows what they are doing. Their gambit is to get the jail out from under HCSO control AND receive political cover (via indirect Federal demand) for a massive tax hike to build new jail. Hinds is as broke as Jackson and the BPS running the county needs a Federal excuse to soak their own for a new jail.

10:38 you tell us. The jail averages 210 jailers according to Pete Luke. The sheriff has a $20,000,000 budget. And you think that's not enough?

Anonymous said...

The jail has a bunch of folks there that can't pay their misdemeanor fines. And its full of people that have been waiting for trial for years. Get those two groups reduced and the jail situation is not so over whelming.

Escapes only happen at the jail when it is to the benefit of the jailers. If jailers are happy, inmates are happy, all is quiet. Its a system.

Anonymous said...

Let's all calm down. It doesn't say they won't accept those "convicted" of any charges. It only says they won't accept those who are only facing "charges"

It takes 6 months to get a trial date in Jackson Municipal Court.

The new Mississippi Rules of Criminal Procedure favor personal recognizance bonds and not money bonds. This memo is in compliance with the new rules that went into effect July 1, 2017.

No one is in jail for non payment of misdeamenor fines. Settlement agreement prohibited such.

Do we really need to put people in jail for misdemeanor shoplifting or possession of marijuana?

Don't really ever post but I see some of you jumping on Pete Luke. Do you know him? Have you talked to him? I know him. He is a solid, do anything for you kind of guy. My company has about 150 employees in hinds county. Day or night, if we call Pete, he does his best to make sure our crews are safe. I know a ton of residents that appreciate the SO for all they do. I would bet most of them probably work harder in a day than most of you critics do in a week. I have a great picture in my mind of you right now...... about 5'8'' and 250lbs laying on your busted up sofa. Probably full up on credit card debt too. You may want to take a look in the mirror before you start throwing stones.

The sheriff's budget is $24 million for this year - it's on the county website.

The people of Hinds County voted for this mess! Vet your candidates folks!

Anonymous said...

Black churches in Hinds County (and many others) are solely responsible for the elected officials we have. So stop with the bullshit about 'vet your candidates'.

Anonymous said...

Interesting article here. I wonder if it's a sign of what is to come? The jail is obviously imploding on Victor's watch and he is solely responsible for that, but when he is found in contempt, and it looks like he will be, the jail and the courthouse will be the only two places that you will see the SO work at. All of the enforcement and community services that you enjoy so much will be mandated to work the jail...most of whom the certified officers will go find a more meaningful job with another department which will create an even bigger vacuum for Slic Vic to fill, which he's proven he's not smart enough to figure out already. You wanted the job vic. It's getting a little harder to lie your way out of it now you little coward. You are doing to the Hinds County citizens what you did to your supports. You lie, duck and dodge, and screw them over, and they are all going to pay you back at the ballot box just like they payed Tony Yarber back (you'll get your 5%). Then you'll be in the unemployment line with your right hand men who have guided you so skillfully down this primrose path. Pete Luke and Nick Clark.

Speaking of vet your candidate...i was curious the other day and did a search and could not believe what i found. It appears that Victor Mason has never presented a grand jury packet to the DA's office for prosecution. Do you mean to tell me that we elected, and i'm as guilty as the next, a sheriff that has been an investigator and task force operator his whole 20-30 year career, but never put a case together on anything...come on, tell me I'm wrong. Please show evidence, where he did pull/build/provide the evidence to personally convict a criminal. Please show us we didn't get scammed by this guy.

@9:39, obviously most of us that are posting are or were employees and your obviously speaking about the Entergy Detail. That being said, Pete Luke monopolized that detail to himself and friends, not the men who really needed the money. You know him, professionally with his best face on.

We know him as the career ending, twofaced, backstabbing, lieing, ego and power hungry POS that he is.

While your little elitist attitude attempts to judge us by couch riding, fatasses. That has nothing to do with the issue. Between Victor and Pete ruining, destroying and ending careers, for those reasons, VICTOR will not be re elected

11:01. The funny thing is, If you are in law enforcement, I am taking up for you too. I'm not just talking about a detail or 1 man, I'm talking about all the stuff that goes on where you guys put your lives on the line without much appreciation. Pretty sad to see you cannibalize yourselves here.

As far as me being an "elitist", you can suck it. I work my ass off son and I go out of my way to recognize others who do the same. Pete is one of those guys. Sorry you did not make the inner circle and get the good assignment. I guess you are one of those "victims" where the whole world is against you and life isn't fair. Poor baby. Mommy didn't hug you enough? You sound like all the other half ass employees in the world today who want something for nothing. Ever thought about getting off your ass and earning it? You ever think that those who get rewarded work hard and accomplish goals, hit targets, etc.......Winners hang around winners and losers hang around losers-that's just a fact. Sure, it helps to have relationships, I'll give you that. All winners and successful people do. Instead of laying around and crying about it, you should be thinking about how to get yourself in the winners circle. If I were in your shoes, that would be my plan. Use your frustrations as an incentive to work harder. Heck, if you really have been looked over, kick ass in your current position and make those who passed you over regret it. That's how you really win my friend.

But, if I had to guess, you'll probably still just sit around and cry about the same old stuff. Today it is bad ole Pete holding you back. Tomorrow it will be the supervisor in your next job who is doing you wrong. Probably had a mean teacher in school who was unfair and that is why you had it rough. Man, same song, 10th verse. Quit being the victim and own it. Change your mindset and take a different approach. It doesn't sound like your current course is working out. Best of luck.

@9:15, obviously you're an outsider for sure. No, working harder gets you nowhere when working for an ELECTED OFFICIAL,it's all about who you know, how many checks and votes did you collect. It's never been based on job performance or your education, and didn't sound like your taking up for us sweetie, don't worry remember tough guy, you called us to gaurd your boys when their in the Big bad city. By the way, nobodys crying, just a factual statement about your boy Pete, who you don't have a clue, about how the inner circles ran. Keep calling us dear, we'll keep protecting your girls when they go in the Big Bold City.

So don't fret my little keyboard tough guy, per your writing, you obviously have NO CLUE. So I won't hold too accountable, but understand and know for certain one thing sweet cheeks, a change is comming..Your boy Pete and Victor will be gone, and things will be done fairly and Correctly for a while to come.

Anonymous said...

Your right @9:53, I've never worked for an elected official. Again, I have a tremendous amount of respect for those who protect and serve. You completely miss the point of my perspective and take on these comments. Maybe I have it all wrong. All I am saying is is that when this "outsider " reads your comments, it sounds like the "victim" mentality. You are the only one who can truly answer the question. If you have excelled with other organizations and your problems are isolated with the SO, then there is another solution. Dust off the resume and go with another organization. Well trained, hard working professionals in your field are in high demand and there are many, many non Hinds County SO positions in both the public and private sector in the metro. Then, your problems will be solved.

But, if you have had problems and issues with others in supervision throughout your career, then you need to consider my take as your reality. Again, only you can really answer the question deep down. Regardless, take control of your own future and don't be a crying pawn. Nothing wrong with a pawn at all, everybody is in some shape, form or fashion. The only difference between me and you is that I don't sit around and complain about when it doesn't go my way. I use it to only make myself better. And then if there is a roadblock that truly can't be overcome, move in a different direction. However, most of the time, the problem lies in the mirror and not somebody else.

@9:53. One other note in all seriousness. My comments nor I am affiliated with entergy in any way. Keep doing whatever it is you do for them. They work real hard too!!!

Anonymous said...

Just an observation from another one's point of view to the entergy folks...i know personally most of the folks that Pete and his cronies have lied to, stabbed in the back and sabotaged their SO careers with Hinds. These were great folks that were the ones you wanted responding when you had to call 911. They understood the urgency and delicacy of the situation and knew how to handle it. Once they had their throats cut by Pete Luke and company they dusted of the resume and moved on to an easier and more profitable career. A win win you might say....that is until you folks have to call 911...you'll probably better understand once your crews start getting "jacked" in the city day and night and ole Pete can't move the needle for you any more with good security. Tey are leaving every week and JPD cops aren't even applying for SO jobs anymore. That my friend is what's coming down the pipe and was being referred to by others on this post who have insider insight. Pete Luke with Victor Mason's approval has butchered the SO (in the name of money, not winners circle) to the point now that basic law enforcement responsibilities are becoming a past memory and you my friends are going to be the ones that suffer when you come face to face with the roving bands of armed thugs that roam the streets, but throw your line wrench at them and tell them your calling Pete as they unload on you for your copper, tools and everything else they can take. We thank you for keeping the lights on, but what are you going to do when your crews start to refuse to go to the work in the city due to safety? Fire them, send them in with 4 times the required personnel for a dramatic loss in productivity (how long will corporate alow that loss to occur before they start looking at cutting or replacing supervisors and/or crews). The loss of public safety touches everything and whether you or others know it Pete, who I'm sure is your friend and a likable guy, was at the heart of the demise of the implosion of public safety that citizens and businesses of Hinds County expected from the SO. He had the power to make the right decisions, but he didn't, and for that we'll all suffer until the next election.

Well said @9:08, Pete's ran off the majority of any Deputy that had any experience or leadership. The rest are dusting off their resumes and looking elsewhere, but now Hinds S.O is looked at like a joke, instead of the experienced leaders we were under Mac.

Victor and Pete are strictly in it for the money. What will Entergy do without any security, not go, because getting robbed in Jackson is real.
Will Entergy pay double, triple, what? They don't mind charging exuberant prices for their services.

Spooner will undoubtedly be your next SHERIFF and everything will be ran properly, fairly and with INTEGRITY.

This has been so comical to watch. We knew This was going to happen with Victor. Alot more time before the elections, way too much more to come.

Victors so incompetent it's laughable to watch. Held in Contempt, no employees to hire, anyone being sent to the Jail is quiting before they go, or shortly thereafter.

Pete running things behind the scenes and then smiling to your face when he sees you In the halls.

Come on Pete, just stop speaking and be a man about it, you've been shown to be the lieing, backstabber you've always been. Under Mac, who was told not to rehire you back and now under Victor.

It's finished ladies, collect those high four, Oh Victor, your wife's going to divorce you and get half, Karma's a bitch. Pete, you just run back into the shadows of Rankin County and hide..

What a mess you've left..

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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
