Idiot of the day: Canton edition.

A Canton police dispatcher was arrested for taking what can only be called an illegal smoke break.  Madison County deputies arrested Earl Haney on the late hours of July 21 at the Gluckstadt exit ramp on I-55 South. 

The arresting officer stated in the police report:

I was the arresting office and the evaluator. I came into contact with Haney on the 155 south Gluckstadt exit ramp.  I was out with other Deputies while they were waiting on a tow truck for a car on the ramp. I was assisting with directing traffic due to two lanes of the exit being closed. I noticed that there was a car approaching my location and I noticed that the driver of the car was not wearing his safety belt. I advised the driver Haney, who's driver's window was down, to stop for me.  I approached the window and noticed that there was a strong odor of marijuana. I noticed that Haney was wearing a polo shirt with a Canton Police Department badge on it.  I asked Haney for his DL and proof of insurance and also asked him what he did for Canton P.D. Haney stated that he was a dispatcher and was on break at this time. After Haney handed me his information I noticed that there was a marijuana cigarette in the cup holder. I asked Haney if he rolled his on cigarettes and he stated that he didn't. I advised Haney to hand the rolled one to me and he did so. I found that it was a marijuana cigarette and asked Haney to step out of the car.  Once Haney was out of the car and checked for weapons I asked him if there was any other marijuana in the car and he stated that there was. I found that the marijuana was in the driver's door pocket.  I placed Haney into cuffs and into the rear of my patrol unit.  I then looked in the car further and found that there was a small white substance on the driver's seat. I looked back in the bag that the marijuana was in and noticed that there was also a white envelop in the bag. When opening the envelope I noticed that there was white residue and on further inspection of the marijuana I noticed that there was a white substance mixed in with the marijuana. When I asked Haney about the white substance he advised that it was crack that he was mixing with the marijuana.

Kingfish note: Smoking weed and crack while working at the police station? This suspect definitely qualifies for idiot of the day.

But wait... This stop was another prime example of profiling by the MCSO. Somebody call the ACLU and report this immediately!

Damn Damn Damn (in my Florida Evans voice ) Folk have to be more careful lol

Kingfish said...

Yup. Don't show this to the ACLU, it will call me "delusional" again.

It's a shame that a 66yo man still has to work. In a civilized state, he would be retired and able to sit at home and smoke all the weed and crack he desires.

How can he afford Mary Jane and crack on a dispatcher's salary?

For once you and I agree PittPanther - mr37

If it had been Canton PD making the stop, we'd never hear of this.

10:03AM Stopping someone for not wearing a seatbelt is a lot different than stopping and asking for ID when you’re exiting an apartment complex on foot. Calm down, Privilege.

Kingfish said...

If I'd gotten a tip about it, I would have asked for report. Don't know what CPD would've given me.

Ole Randy is retaliating against the folks who tipped off the ACLU and the Feds, They got lucky when Trump got elected.

So 12:02, you think this doesn't warrant foot patrols in Canton Estates?

It should warrant the US Marines. Dream on, Snowflake.

As someone who was stupid enough to actually buy rental property in that hellhole (decades back, when I was young and colorblind), I can only say that this incident is CLASSIC CANTON. That has to be the most evil little town in America.

I agree that anybody walking the street yelling and fingering the sky with an AK strapped across his back ought to be stopped and questioned although Holder's approach would have been to retort with "BRO Whazzup?"

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.
