Meet the ACLU couple of the year.

Look who the ACLU honored for "Criminal Justice Reform":

The ACLU sued the Madison County Sheriff for using illegal roadblocks to target apartment complexes in predominantly minority areas around Canton. The ACLU represents the Mannings in the lawsuit.

It is rather ironic that the ACLU honors Mr. Manning because it is the same Khadafi Manning who sued Canton Estates Apartments for being too dangerous in December 2016 after he was shot there in 2015.   He claimed in the lawsuit:

Canton Estates Apartments, on and prior to October 7, 2015 had experienced numerous acts of criminal assaults, and other criminal acts against its tenants and their invited guests. The acts were of such a repetitive nature over an extended period of time that it was foreseeable that such violent acts would continue unabated and that as a result thereof...

 The deputy states in the report that there was a "white plastic bag with a white substance in it" (Hmm.... wonder what was going down that night?)

It is rather interesting that the ACLU posted this picture of the happy couple with the announcement.   Madison County deputies also arrested him for domestic violence in 2014.  He apparently came upon his girlfriend having sex with another man.  The police report states that he "assaulted" his girlfriend but doesn't state what constituted the assault.   The case was remanded to file for one year. Manning was also convicted of selling cocaine in Madison County in 2007.   His probation ended in 2014.  Earlier post. 

Kingfish note: The Mississippi ACLU called me "delusional because of JJ's coverage of the Madison County lawsuit."  It appears the ACLU has doubled down on delusional.

Roadblocks are an effective method of serving warrents. The roads belong to the public and are under the purview of the Police. How could they rule against the police.

Almost all of the recent upheavals over "disproportionate" arrest, stops, etc. are directly related to the disproportionate number of crimes committed by blacks.

I have no trouble admitting in the past that some methods were used for intimidation. There may still be a few "bad apples" who would do this. We hope they are being weeded out. Most of JPD is black nowadays as are many other LEO Departments.

If those who accuse and complain would strive for balance in their thought instead of going crazy over the slightest incidents, we would all have more peace. Antifa is not the answer to law and order. Hate is never the answer and neither is anger.

Education is the answer.

The ACLU picked a fine couple. How hard did they look for someone who was not a thug? It doesn't sound like they care about being treated fairly and equally. Sounds more like they want a get out of jail free card.
Doesn't surprise me.

It's not the roadblocks. Problem is when you have a higher number of roadblocks in a primarily black neighborhood as opposed to a white neighborhood.

Almost all of the recent upheavals over "disproportionate" arrest, stops, etc. are directly related to the disproportionate number of crimes committed by blacks.....

Mass killing of over 59 innocent individuals at a music concert...committed by a white male. As a matter of fact, most of the mass killings in the last 50 years in this country have been by white males. Not a stereotype, that is fact. So if Madison County is serious about crime, dont do road blocks in the black community, take guns from white males. Statistically, they are the deadliest threat to the human race. And dont stop at guns. Look at the which race produces the highest number of child pornography convictions...you guessed it. white men. Lets take the guns and computers away from white men and the crime rates in this country will go down drastically.

However, I must admit that I know several white men who own guns who would never hurt anyone. I also know several white men who own computers who I dont believe who ever engage in any behavior that would be harmful to ANY child. But some people are ok with a higher number of law enforcement targeting black neighborhoods because you allege they have a higher amount of crime. Then when law enforcement targets a certain neighborhood and you get more arrest from the race of that neighborhood, you use that as a basis to reinforce your stereotypes. All we want is fairness. Treat every neighborhood they same. As matter of fact, let's stop thinking some races are better, some are worse and treat everyone the same. Do a roadblock in Canton this week, one in Reunion next week. I bet you get a comparable number of DUI's each time.

Do not concern yourself about the rants from the ACLU or premises liability lawsuits. It's all about the money. ACLU lawyers make their living chasing "discrimination" and will see it everywhere if they're looking. Every
time someone is shot or slips and busts their ass, a premises liability lawyer can see a shot at some money if the property is insured. Nothing personal, just business. People like the honorees here are active on both sides of the fence. It's called "hustling" and they know how to play the game. Congrats to them.

What if there is three or four times as much crime in one certain neighborhood vs. another?

Wasn't this Khadafy person arrested again recently? Sometime between the ACLU announcing its lawsuit and now?

This pick is about as appropriate a move as the competing site (Yall Politics) and Supertalk's choice of the disHonorable Steve Holland, the Representative who on at least three occasions had to go to the well of the House and apologize for his drunken outbursts, and on at least on occasion had to go to the Speaker's office for a berating for the 'mistreatment' of his young male page. Plenty of good Democrats that could have been picked to keep the bipartisan concept; some very honorable (Cecil Brown??) some at least good, respectful leaders (Brandon Presley, Chairman Moak) - but no, had to go pick the cream of the crop for recognition. Maybe the ACLU and YP can combine their recognition night since they both seem to be picking truly wonderful individuals to honor.

I would welcome as many roadblocks as the MCSO would like to put in my neighborhood (although the neighborhood is pretty evenly mixed in regards to race). I'm not breaking the law, and welcome a police presence. It would probably slow down some of the fools that speed through and put kids at risk. Why do people act like a roadblock is such a bad thing, unless you are up to something you don't want hindered by said roadblock?

Anonymous said...

12:15, I appreciate your comments and understand your concern. You make valid point that if you have more roadblocks in black neighborhoods than white neighborhoods, then more likely than not you're going to arrest more blacks than whites. And I agree that if you have a roadblock in Canton and one in Reunion, you might arrest the same number of people.

But 12:49 makes a valid point too. You may be comparing apples to oranges to a certain extent. Statistically there are many more reports and calls of assaults, drugs, shootings and other crimes occurring in/at the Canton Estates apartment complex than there are in Reunion. That's a factual statement, not racial. Mr Manning himself, in his separate lawsuit against the complex, alleged that Canton Estates "had experienced numerous acts of criminal assaults, and other criminal acts against its tenants and their invited guests. The acts were of such a repetitive nature over an extended period of time that it was foreseeable that such violent acts would continue unabated". I'm unaware of any such allegations or a history of crimes at Reunion. My question being, isn't it legitimate for law enforcement to focus their efforts in areas of high reported crimes vs areas with little, if any, reported crimes ? If there were repeated reports of violent crimes such as assault or shootings or reports of open drug dealing in Reunion, I'd certainly expect more law enforcement efforts there too, and I wouldn't think it was racial. If the Madison S.O. was targeting black neighborhoods with few, if any, reports of crimes, I might think there was a racial element going on. But if they're focusing on an area with high reports of crimes, they're just doing what they're supposed to do, aren't they ? This brings me back to a previous statement I made on an earlier post on this issue: If the police ignore black neighborhoods with high crime, they're not doing their job and not helping those black neighborhoods become safer. But then when they do focus on black neighborhood with high crime and try to make them safer, they're accused of being racists. They're damned if they do and damned if they don't.

Again, I do understand your point and your concerns. I'm not trying to argue that you're wrong. But I think the comparison of Canton Estates to Reunion is probably not the best argument.

1215 its satire right? Otherwise you might ought to actually research statistics

Without addressing at this point race issues related to road blocks, no argument is advanced by flawed usage of statistical data. For information about the rate of homicides by race with firearms see https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/fv9311.pdf. Based on this report, homicides using firearms by race were 14.6 per 100,000 for blacks and 1.9 per 100,000 for whites.

You can access the Mother Jones database of mass killers 1982-2017 here:


Doesn't take much ciphering to discover that the percentage of mass shooters vs. population segments is within a reasonable range of expectation, except for the "Asian" category, which skews high, despite the theory that whites are the vast majority of mass killers. It would seem mass murder is truly an equal opportunity vocation despite what the old wives' tales say.

Amazing to me how KF will allow some posts with objective data, but not others. Like:

Blacks are 13% of the U.S. population and yet commit 52% of homicides.

He won’t allow this comment to be posted, because he’s a snowflake.

But back to the fishing analogy:

If I fish twenty ponds in Madison County and most of my success is had at ponds 2, 11 and 18, what sense does it make to require me to launch my jon boat in all the other ponds equally, where, over time, it's been shown that there ain't no fish in them?

These road blocks are having much more success than booking the occasional guy on his way home with a beer can between his legs. And you people know it. You just don't like it.

Outrageous and unacceptable criminal behavior is perfectly OK in some neighborhoods, some areas, some demographics. It's OK with me if you steal everybody else's grill, pop their car windows and deal drugs with them...as long as you leave me and my shit alone. They'd rather be left alone to their own devices and entertainment activities. But, they signed up to live in a civil society so they don't get to have their wish.

And the ACLU will not slow down civil society's obligation to provide peace and order.

Road blocks in Canton.....yeah, that will get that will catch a whole truck load of white folks doing wrong.....pun intended!! However, I live in Canton and see checkpoints in Canton on a fairly regular basis, CPD and MCSO, on all sides of town 43/Canton Parkway, Hwy 16 on East side of town, 43/Finney Road, HWY 51/ Finney Road, HWY 22 coming in from interstate.

The old adage holds true.....If you're going fishin go where you'll do some catchin !!

If you're not DUI or doing wrong there is zero to fear at a road block.

Has anyone contacted the ACLU regarding their poster couple and their devious dealings? If Mr. Manning has a criminal record, why does the ACLU support a career criminal? To me, a poster child should be without tarnish, no matter the organization. But then again, common sense is not all that common.

Well said, 4:40! My thoughts exactly. Law enforcement should and does go where more crimes are being committed. That's not a complicated concept. But when they do, they're called rascist. When they don't, they're accused of not keeping black neighborhoods safe. No win for them. Can't please em. Just like the Ayers suit years ago: complaint was there shouldn't be predominantly black colleges, that's segregation. Then when they got what they wanted, they complained that they lost their predominantly black colleges.

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.

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.
