Crime alert in Leftover

The homeowners' organization for Leftover sent this warning to its members:

For the second time in less than three months, our home was broken into while we were asleep in our bedroom. At approximately 3:30am this morning, the perps kicked in our garage door and were in and out within 30 seconds. They stole a purse, keys, and my fiancĂ©’s 2013 Infiniti G37. Our alarm system and dogs alerted us to the intrusion but I opted to maintain my draw line in the bedroom unsure of how many may have entered. JPD was on the scene within 3 minutes of our 911 call. 

 For those that attended the LOHO HOA meeting Monday night, let’s get to work on securing this neighborhood. While we are all asleep in our beds, they cruise these streets with easy ingress and egress all hours of the night. We have cameras that show it. For those that did not attend, I hope the severity and brazenness of this crime will compel you to join us in our efforts. We refuse to be made victims in our own homes again and are working with the team at JPD to apprehend these suspects just like we did in August... even if the judges are simply going to let them right back out anyway...
 The perps referred to at the end of the email are still residing in the Rankin County jail.

Same house twice in 3 months. The first things I would do are get a for sale sign and a doberman. I assume this couple has problems sleeping. On the brighter side, your fiancé must love you if she still stays there with you.

I'm not sure how they are refusing to be victims in their home. Sounds like they have resigned themselves to be a crime victim. They are aware of crime cruising the streets, haven't moved or found a way to reinforce the property, and chose not to confront them. In response to a crime fighting group named LOHO I can only guess the "perps" said LMAO.

Is Leftover the area that is just not right in Eastover but surrounds it ?????

Serious situation---not funny with the Leftover remark.

People that will come in your house knowing you are in there, most likely will kill you---

I commend JPD for their swift response (3 Minutes) WOW !!!!!!!

What street was this on in Leftover?

Ah, the Dense High Income utopia. Emphasis on the Dense.

If you live in the Jackson city limits and can afford it I’d advise you to get extra secure and strong fences, gates, doors, windows etc. Expect to be robbed. Alarms only alert after the fact. Make your home a fort.

Must have been very familiar with the inside of the house to be in and out in 30 seconds.
They already knew where the things they wanted would be.

Anon. 3:00. There are several neighborhoods surrounding Eastover in NE Jackson that generally call themselves "Leftover" but this is in the LOHO named area that is west of Ridgewood. generally bound on the south by Eastover Drive, the north by Meadowbrook, and the west by Roxburry (if not the frontage road).

I lived in Jackson, with the exception of 4 years away at college, for the first 40 years of my life. I left there not necessarily for the crime rate at the time, but for (a) a larger, nicer house that was more convenient to work/schools, and (b) because I knew it was only a matter of time before the coming crime wave reached my family. Having lived out of Jackson now for over 20 years, I cannot FATHOM how/why people put up with the possibility (probability?) that their home could be broken into while they're away or, increasingly, while they're home! I would no more put up with that crap than I would anything! Like someone said above, claiming you're "not" going to be a victim of crime doesn't translate into the criminal's language. You're "going" to be a victim if they decide you're going to be a victim. That's pretty much the bottom line.

The BEST way to avoid being a victim of crime is to be in places, as much as possible, where the criminals AREN'T. Contrary to what I'm sure someone is about to say (crime can happen anywhere), the fact is, the goal is to reduce the probability as low as you can.....and step one is to get the hell out of Jackson! I may not be 100% free of crime, but for the last 20 years I have been....and I'll bet my neighborhood has been at about 98%, with 0% home invasion.

2 times in 3 months? gotta be friggin' kidding me! It's not like it's gonna get better either, no matter how deeply you dig your heels in

Proud of JPD. And, for all you haters, why shouldn't someone be safe in their own locked home? Criminals are on our streets because we have a voting populace who insist on returning a DA, Judges, and others who are "soft" on crime. Our so called main newspaper and TV stations refuse to educate the voters about the pitiful records of these elected officials on convictions and their letting people go just to commit more crimes. Thanks to Kingfish for giving us the straight news.

"I opted to maintain my draw line in the bedroom..."

Who says shit like that? But, it's really cool that he knew it took 30 seconds after kicking the door down to gain entry and he knew exactly how long it took JPD to get there.

We live in ne jxn and after a couple of "instances" we bought a Doberman puppy. 6 months later and thereafter nobody comes near my property until I put the dog up. Weird noise? Let the dog out. Hear something in living room? Let the dog out. We put in an electric fence that surrounds the property and it is like lock down mode all the time. He is a beast and you would have to shoot him to get through He is great with the kids too. Love family, hates strangers. Got him from Sureshot Dobermans outside of Brandon for $1200. I couldn't suggest it highly enough. If you are gonna have a family dog may as well be one that is gonna run a no good sob off.

He drew his line in the bedroom..lmao
30 seconds, you should've put 6-8 rounds in all of them thugs and your own car on principle.
That would've stopped them from coming back, if you weren't able to call the coroner instead.

That's the only thing they know.
Hey LOHO, grow a set and start defending yourselves.

8:01. I admire your grit but I sure wouldn’t want to fire some homies up in Jackson and then depend on RSS
and a Hinds GJ to No Bill me. Now over here in the Niknar we don’t have those worries....

Anonymous said...

We get it. Blame the victim and coddle the perpetrators. You may move on now, peanut gallery.

Anonymous said...

8:24, nobody's blaming the victim. Take the responsibility on yourself and defend your frickn home ( The Castle Law ) and no homies are coming, bad guys don't like being shot back at.

He had a perfect oppurtunity to light em up and a forced entry and stealing the car. I.e. Home, vehicle or your business you can use deadly force.

Probably would've been a huge deterrent if he did, for any future homies.

Been there, done that said...

" The perps referred to at the end of the email are still residing in the Rankin County jail. "

But of course. Rankin does not have a catch-and-release program.

Pro tip:

1) Get a couple of Dobermans or pit bulls on leashes out in the yard.

2) Don't feed 'em more than once a week.

Anonymous said...

All these Madison Armchair warriors are posting on here. How many pit bulls on leashes do you see in Madison? Most firepower some of y'all have is your sons BB Gun. Instead of telling Leftover to grow a set why don't you move down here and turn your house into a forward operating base.

"How many pit bulls on leashes do you see in Madison?"

I wasn't aware we needed any. That's why we live here, and not Jackson.

I trust barking dogs over alarm systems.

Quit trying to talk these people into moving out of Jackson. If they all leave, the thugs won't have anyone to rob and will move their operations out to the suburbs.

Eastover, leftover, what is the difference? It is still Jackson.

You don't understand, 8:01. This way he didn't have to mop up all that blood.

@2:19, you're right..always want somebody else to defend them though.

To counter all the tough-talking jackasses and their victim-blaming, I'd like to thank the homeowners for staying in Jackson. If everybody fled, then the problem would only follow. As someone who did flee, I feel it's my duty to praise those who choose to stay.

Sometimes, it takes a SECOND victimization, before we realize that there's a new reality, and act accordingly. I've lived in New Orleans and Canton, and can sympathize. It takes a while, to realize that doors can never be too strong, and that you can never be too paranoid or too vigilant. You learn to dread holidays involving fireworks, because you KNOW that those are the nights when criminals WILL use the noise as cover for breaking glass and shooting. You learn not to answer the door, and to hide, when you see someone coming down the street. It doesn't take long, to learn these things.

I finally gave up, and moved into a little gold-plated lifeboat of a community. But I'm old, and tired of fighting, and hiding, and replacing glass, and looking over my shoulder every three seconds, while washing the car or clipping the hedges. Kudos to YOU, for having the courage to fight - to stay in that BEAUTIFUL neighborhood (in '79, I almost bought a 50s split-level not far from you), and to continue to work, to KEEP it beautiful.

I wish you the best of luck.

What's with all the haters? We get it. You don't want to live in Jackson. And thinking you would know better how to handle the situation if you were actually IN IT? Doubt it. It's easy to pull the trigger from behind a computer.

LOHO is a great place to live and raise a family. And if you knew anything else about us, you would know that this particular homeowner has already put forth great efforts to make it a safer place. How about a little support.

Anonymous said...

8:19, not a lot of parents in Jackson actually raise a family. They free range them. Really not a lot of parents as most homes are single parent homes and the government pays the rent and buys the food.
In other areas free ranging kids is not allowed. Crime is nothing like in the zoo of a city Jackson. Parents, yes two of them, actually raise their own children.

Anonymous said...

A majority of the people that live in this area send their kids to private schools. Yes they do raise a family and are usually hose holds of significant income levels. Stop with your petty Jackson sucks rant. Hell, your obviously more versed in the other parts rather than the private school community area such as these.

Sad to read this. I raised my family in NE Jackson and moved out of state 4 or 5 years ago. It sounds extremely dangerous, particularly watching from an area with one of the lowest violent crime rates in the country.

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.
