WLBT reports more on DPS cover-up

Courtney Ann Jackson picked up JJ's story about the federal government's efforts to collect $7 million from the Mississippi Department of Public Safety: 




One little fact is left out of the WLBT report. NHTSA also says that DPS continues to have problems in using the grant and NHTSA has no confidence in DPS's ability to properly administer the DUI-enforcement grants.

Regardless of who reported it, it is quite clear that the Mississippi Department of Public Safety flat-out lied and did so blatantly.  Serving themselves & protecting their asses.

It's quite easy to screw over the citizenry of MS. Not so much with the Feds. Maybe the silver lining in all of this is that the holiday roadblock
gestappo racket will come to a screeching hault. My brother from Texas gets harassed every year during Christmas. And for all you SJW's that think only the black populace is harrased-he's a pudgy, white good ole boy that's a teacher who drives a truck. So, there's that.

@ 935. You are correct! The blocks have nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with revenue.

And knowing the depths of their deceit, and the financial hit that would directly result to the hardworking taxpayers of Mississippi, DPS worked extensively to keep their incompetence, and deceit, safely hidden from the Mississippi public.

Can the entire State of Mississippi be charged with "lack of institutional control" by the feds? All three branches, and it's "flagship" university (i.e. Plantation Oxford) need a full out enema.

I wonder if DPS will in turn try to get the money back from the local police departments.

Mississippi's "state" revenue is 42% Federal dollars.

If someone with some backbone would just start doing some serious investigation into ALL it's agencies, you would find a foul stink throughout every branch of it's government. We're talking about BILLIONS of dollars that the Oxford Plantation is trying to concentrate into it's greedy hands, while throwing the entire state's citizenry face down in a cotton field.

Let the Department Heads serve some jail time. That would put a stop to it.

It took the governor seven years to fire Santa Cruz. How quickly do any of you suspect he will even acknowledge THIS situation? All the gov wants is an 85 mph back-seat ride to whatever his destination today is.

Many states have an Inspector General. Not gonna happen here.

The federal government is way too big. We need to ween state and local governments off of getting so much federal money. At the same time ween off farmers, energy producers, oil companies, poor folks, etc, etc. Pay less federal taxes and more state taxes.
We still might have state agencies stealing, but at least stealing from their own state. If we did that we have to pay one less layer of bureaucrats to administer this. Secondly the states would be free to do things in different ways and learn from each other's mistakes as was designed in the constitution.

Kingfish - select all images with roads signs. Something is really wack about that.

Our current Governor has had more Department Head mismanagement during his reign than any other. He appoints incompetent people and refuses to remove the corrupt ones. Epps, Santa Cruz...

So M. Fisher is hired to navigate the mess at the prison. Now he is sent to clean up the mess at DHS. Every damn trooper needs to be on the road. Patrol the interstates around Jackson and ticket and arrest these fools. Troopers have no business moving into an office taking on administrative roles. Sorry, but they are all incompetent fuck ups other than patrolling and fighting crime. The current head trooper can't even speak English correctly when conducting an interview. Many of these positions are doled out to blacks so the office can be racially balanced. One big shithole of a mess.

@11:47, you are correct. There are far too many people in Mississippi who have power that shouldn't. And that's both inside and outside of the state government. If they can succeed in keeping the populace poor and ignorant then they can pass laws, govern and make shady deals to pass money down the line and fil,their pockets. The only way you can do this is to skirt the law and we know now profession is better at that than anyone in ALL professions.

So let's raise fuel taxes, take that money and declare you spent it on highways but somehow the legislature had to have some of it to fund education..... but wait, didn't Mississippi legalize gambling in the '90's under Kirk with the money going towards education? And we still come up short? 155 school districts? And we buy into it every year knowing we have a dumb population. Every state agency is dirty! Even the one that COLLECTS it with Gestapo tactics.

looking forward to labor day weekend to see if DPS put on another publicity campaign like "click it or ticket"

I've driven most every highway in the delta in the past six days and never saw one trooper. Not one.

This must be what they learn in those extra weeks at "trooper school"...waste of time and money

I recently got a ticket from a trooper on the Natchez Trace --- total waste of law enforcement resources.

Anonymous said...

Why is MHP working the Trace? They should be out on Mississippi's highways enforcing the speed limit! If they have enough manpower to help the park rangers, then they have enough highway patrol troopers to patrol our highways. therefore we don't need another trooper school! The Natchez Trace is a federal highway - when our troopers write a ticket, where does that money go - to the feds or the state of Mississippi?

Anonymous said...

6:34, you mentioned trooper and law enforcement in the same sentence, I'm sure that was an oversight. Does the Mississippi highway safety patrol have law enforcement officers??

Anonymous said...

@2:34 - our state auditor is supposed to fill that role, but the OSA has been weaponized against political opponents. David Huggins has entirely too much power.

Anonymous said...

The reason why you can't find a Trooper (s) on the highways is because that have all been in Biloxi escorting all the Legislators around. There was a Harrison County Deputy shot down there but was not caught - might have been nice to have those Troopers on the highways where they are supposed to be instead babysitting the Legislators and the Lt Governor. Why does the LT Governor need 4 state vehicles and drivers at his house anyway - oh - one for him, one for his wife and the other two for each child? He is really cutting back on expenses - just wait until he becomes Governor!

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.

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.
