JPD officer shot.

JPD issued the following press release.

JPD is currently investigating an officer involved shooting that took place at approximately 12:15am in the 4200 block of I-55N. Officers were patrolling the area when they observed a suspicious male individual behind the Select 10 Motel, who immediately fled after seeing police.

Officers subsequently located this individual who then produced a weapon and fired shots at officers when confronted. This led to a foot pursuit of the suspect who made it to the roof of the motel where shots were again fired. An officer was stuck at that time by the suspect as officers returned fire.

The suspect was later apprehended after discarding the weapon. Officers were able to recover the suspect's firearm following a search of the grounds.

The wounded officer suffered what appeared to be a graze wound to the left arm but is doing well. He was taken to an area hospital as precaution.

The suspect, identified as 40 year old, Alton Johnson, was arrested and is being charged with at least one count of Aggravated Assault on Police Officer. Additional charges could be forthcoming.

This is a well-known trouble spot among JPD. When I worked for the city, I circled around the back to respond to a complaint and noticed that it was not dissimilar to a Scarface movie or Grand Theft Auto video game. It's owned and managed by some sketchy Indian guys.

You think he will be out on bail by the weekend ?
Or maybe he's already out on bail !

They need to bulldoze that strip of crack motels.

Your hotels in Jackson receive HUD vouchers. That is why foreigners own them, minorities occupy them and Caucasians look the other way. To get into the country, foreigners who are already here will offer an investment into the hotels for $500,000 per person in their family. It is a way to expedite the citizenship process and flood the market with hotel owners. This system began after Katrina with the displaced federally subsidized population of New Orleans which is why the current crime issue IS an issue in Jackson.....we got their criminals.

Thank God the officer was not hurt worse.

Indian nationals have been extensive owners/operators of motels in U.S. for a lot longer than was Katrina.

Hopefully Judge Shamsiddeen will get this case because this suspect could face additional risks due to the nature of his alleged offense. He needs to be protected until he can defend his case.

@ October 4, 2017 @ 9:20AM, thank you for explaining this thoroughly! I hate to say this, but any motel they are allowed to buy, I’m certain to never spend any money nor time there, as they do foster and breed crime and criminal activity in already vulnerable communities. The fact that these are HUD vouchers, these properties makes even more sense on how easily they are to be purchased by these foreigners and can be used as a ticket to citizenship.

@9:20 Thank you for your half ass and incorrect explanation of the EB-5 program.

Nice narrative about post-Katrina HUD funds going haywire. Might be some truth to it but between gas stations and hotels in this country, it turns out Christopher Columbus actually DID discover the western portion of India.

To 2:27 and 2:23....whether you like it or not, it's the truth. Can you explain why Indians own the crack infested and crime ridden hotels and not legitimate business owners or am i being as you would say...racist? We didn't have anywhere near these problems before Karina came through......just think, the new hotel at Eastover is also student housing for JSU!!!

Matter of fact, did you ever notice school busses stopping to pick up children at motels?

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.
