The suspects have also been observed wearing hooded sweatshirts and gloves. Two of the suspects have been described as approx. 6’0 feet tall and the other, 5’4-5’8, approx. 175 lbs.

These suspects maybe responsible for the Sunday night robbery of three individuals near the 2700 block of Rutledge Ave. Sandeep Singh, a victim of this incident was also fatally wounded after being shot during the course of the robbery. The suspect responsible for shooting him is described as a black male, last seen wearing a gray hooded shirt, armed with a .9mm pistol.

Anyone with any information on the identity and/or location of the suspects responsible for these robberies is urged to contact police at 601-960-1234 or 601-355-TIPS (8477).

Singh Murder

(#1) Jackson Police are investigating a shooting that resulted from a robbery.  It occurred shortly after 11:00pm in the 2700 block of Rutledge St. 

The three male victims were standing outside of their residence when an armed masked male of short stature, wearing a gray hooded top, appeared and demanded their belongings. 

The suspect later fled on foot after taking money and cell phones from the victims.  As he fled, the suspect fired shots back at the victims, striking one in the abdomen.  That victim was transported to an area hospital and is listed in critical condition.

This is called craziness?
What do people in Jackson really expect? They elect crooked people to every office they are allowed to vote on. Their school system is as bad as their pot holed streets.
No one cares if their kids get an education so they let people steal their children's future.
The people choose judges that will let murderers out to walk the street and even not allow law enforcement from other areas to chase the thugs back into their home in Jackson.
It is craziness. The craziness started many years ago and looks like it will continue well into the future.
When people abandon their own children they cannot expect those children to grow up any different.

10:09 -- YUP ---Sadly I live here and to go to a city council meeting (USELESS) and state exactly what you have said will immediately elicit RACISM as the motivation and the basis for all that happens in Jackson. Doesn't matter if it will end up 90/10 demographics in 2020, and white folk have not been in charge for YEARS.......hell DECADES.......it will still be our fault and no help. Selling my house this spring, leaving the city and re-locating my business out of state after DECADES here and rearing my children in Mississippi. Breaks my heart but whites in charge are tone deaf (e.g. the state legislature and governor), and the blacks have sang the "RACISM" song so long, that's all they or their children know. The great sucking sound you hear is my tax dollars (property, income, sales, etc.) leaving the state. I have come to realize I'm ineffective in Jackson and the state of Mississippi. If I'm ineffective then my money is no longer required. No taxation without representation. Voted Cochran and Wicker -- hope all of you have the good sense to find an alternative.

Jackson needs three things

Something to combat the level of poverty; better trained and better-paid officers; and a Governor that's willing to channel resources to get Mississippi's biggest city back on track.

You can see the aesthetic improvements all over downtown Jackson. But, nothing to combat the unemployment and crime levels.

If a city of 11 million like New York City can lower their crime numbers, can't see why it's not possible for Jackson with a floating population of around 180,000

Does anyone really believe that all this craziness won't spread into northeast Jackson and beyond.

I say get Philbilly to call out the National Guard for six months to patrol the streets of Jackson. This may give the city a black eye for a while but it may help control the situation. The crime is so bad that many people are scared to go out after dark.

No wonder we can't get or keep quality businesses. We are almost at a point of no return.

@ 10:39am

The level of poverty in this state is affecting us as a whole. Look at the number of murders in Vicksburg within 2017. Up in the Delta, down in the Hattiesburg region, even on the coast.

As far as bringing in the National Guard, that is a tad extreme and we are not in a state of total lawlessness.

But what is more realistic and possible, is to form a metro task force between the Hinds, Rankin, and Madison Sherrif departments as well as the neighboring police forces, But the Governor would have to be the one to force the hand to get it done.

While the Mayor of Jackson should be held accountable for the crime levels, the Governor should be held accountable as well, since it is the largest municipality in the state and has the biggest effect on the states overall crime numbers.

In Mississippi, we have given the last 4 Governor's a pass on the states crime numbers. Whereas in Texas, they definitely hold their Governor's accountable for those numbers.

Northwest Jackson and the surrounding Pocahontas area is extremely lawless and sketchy. No wonder why Clinton folk don't like to leave their bubble.

Kingfish said...

JPD catches them only to see judges turn them loose. The DA's unwillingness or inability to move the docket along ensures a clogged up criminal justice system and jam-packed jails as well. Mayor can only do so much.

...and a Governor that's willing to channel resources to get Mississippi's biggest city back on track.

How? To what?

Damned Handguns and Lack of Jobs... said...

Here we go with the nonsense of Plain Catfish (and his ilk) again. These thugs are not criminals because they're unemployed. They're unemployed because they're criminals.

You could plop down 50 new 100 man industries in Jackson and that would not effect crime one 9mm rounc.

People don't steal and shoot other people because they're poor. They do those things because they were not raised to value themselves or others or personal property or a human heartbeat. And they do it because they don't give a shit - about a job or anything else.

Being poor has nothing to do with it. Some of the best people I know in Jackson are poor as dirt. I never see them robbing places or killing people. The problem is an epidemic of homes without fathers. You ask any of these criminals where their father is they can't tell you. They don't even know him.
It's not a race thing either it is happening in the white community also.

Anonymous said...

12:01, and who would be to blame for this lack or morals?
You are right in one case. The number of jobs will not matter to people who have not had anyone to teach them morals and the difference in right and wrong.
That is a failure of the parents in Jackson. That is a failure of the citizens of Jackson.

Anonymous said...

"Bieng poor" is only a factor. There are plenty of poor-as-dirt people that live in hillbilly country such as West Virginia & Kentucky and crime does not seem out of control there. This is an black urban problem with hoodlums running rampant because of three things....lack of family, the influence of illegal drugs and their perception of no hope.

'Tis the season for the thugs to get their Christmas money. If a few people get shot and / or killed, it's just part of the process. It is happening every year.

By obtaining grants and other funds to beef up equipment and salaries for a cash-strapped police department.

@ November 28, 2017 at 12:01 PM

and I quote you, "People don't steal and shoot other people because they're poor. They do those things because they were not raised to value themselves or others or personal property or a human heartbeat. And they do it because they don't give a shit - about a job or anything else."

If you look at other poverty-stricken areas across the globe, crime is high. It's a dog eat dog mentality. You go on to say that these people act as such because they were raised to not value themselves. To a degree I can agree with that, simply because we are not too far removed from Jim Crow where people of their "ilk" were told they were not as good as other people on the other side of the tracks. That belief system does have a trickle-down affect on those who were a part of it. So yes, they do believe that they are not valued and why should they care, when no one else does.

Needless to say, that's a weak mindset to have, when you should have the pride to do good things for yourself and your good name.

But I will stand firm that poverty drives the crime levels. Areas with access to opportunity for employment and transportation, do not have the same problems we face in the metro area.

It is a fixable issue, the question remains, how many of you honestly want to see it fixed?

West Virginia - has serious issues with illegal narcotics in hilltopper country. You can look up the numbers for yourself. The poverty/crime mix is not exclusive to black urban environments, but white rural environments as well.

White Mississippians on a daily basis treat blacks like a pariah.

Doubt that?

You don’t live near black people do you?

You don’t go to church with black people do you?

You don’t let your kids school with black kids do you?

You don’t have sex with black people do you?

Think about it.....every aspect of “life” you do to avoid black people.

Save the bs about having friends or whatever lame excuse you have....answer the questions above honestly and you will see the problem and maybe even the beginning of a solution.

1. Yes.
2. Yes, Primarily white, but definitely mixed.
3. Yes. Way more than just attend school together.
4. No. Married for 20 years. Not having sex with other white men, Hispanic men, Asian men, or women, either.

Everyone has some preconceived notions about people..Might be based upon race, religion, sexual orientation,regional stereotype, perceived economic status or class. I do my best to judge each person on their character and/or behavior. That is my solution. It is a work in progress. Jackson’s crime rate is a massive problem, no matter what color you are.

"White Mississippians" as far as I know, treat "blacks" respective to how "blacks" conduct themselves, just like they do white trash, rednecks, etc.

your questions:
1. Yes, I have black neighbors. Right across the street is the nearest
2. Yes, Black, White, Asian, Middle Eastern, Hispanic all attend our church
3. Yes, About 20% of our kids' school has black students
4. Yes/No, I don't but every once in a while my wife has some BBC and I get to watch. But, I would have sex with a hot/intelligent black MILF.

I've thought about it. We don't "avoid black people". We avoid black people who are thugs, black women who are disrespectful (that's a nice way to put it) and the stereotypical black people that is glamorized in rap music. We also avoid white meth heads, hispanic drug mules, white-trash inbreeders, white supremacists/nazis, and anyone else who wear their ignorance so openly and make it THE focal point of their life.

I answered the questions honestly and see the problem. YOU

I can guarantee you we have never met and we never will.

You answered as honestly as you could and that’s great.

Notice how there are 2 who answered?

Wonder where the other 10,000 viewers are?

I can tell you....they don’t stay, lay, pray, or play together.

And I’m not saying it’s correct or right....I’m just showing you the obvious.

Show your face. What's your name?

Oh, and I smell a Donner.

Tommy, is that you???

Anonymous said...


You answered the questions and somehow the person who posed the obvious is the problem?

I ask that you go through your day and think about neighborhoods, churches, schools and areas of town where there seem to be higher %s of single races. Why is that? Why are there so few white people in public schools in Jackson?

Why don’t we see the races intermingling?

Where is crime more prevalent? Why is that?

The facts are right in front of you.....think.

Blame me if you like but that’s nonsensical.

Anonymous said...


I did not "blame" you. I stated that you were the problem..... think.

I'll help you with that. You began your questions with statements pretending to be "facts". You assert something as obvious fact and when you ask someone to answer, your "facts" become accusations.

First, there is no problem with races not wholly mixed. Your government has forced integration through lending practices but it hasn't worked. People tend to gravitate, when they can, towards either culturally comfortable areas or culturally desirable areas. The forced integration through lending practices in the name of "equality" is just one aspect of why there is such cultural tension.

A lot of things are like water. It tends to seek balance but when artificially manipulated can be disastrous.

I have a friend in Jackson that has a kid in school and the teacher was asking the students about World War II ( eleven ). does that give you some idea of the problem.

Don't assume that West Virginia's drug problem is entirely a white thing:
"...Most of the gangs are black and urban. But a group calling itself the Latin Kings has set up in Belle..." (http://www.post-gazette.com/frontpage/2006/05/21/Desperate-drug-war-fought-all-over-West-Virginia/stories/200605210166)

And don't assume that West Virginia's "whites" all descend from the peoples of the British Isles. In addition to Melungeons (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chestnut_Ridge_people), there were a great many immigrants, imported as coal miners, from the more problematic areas of the Mediterranean - areas notorious for their organized crime.

I don’t accuse anyone hence no names are included.

What I do is point out obvious truths which cannot be refuted.

Races and cultures are not the same as elements with physical properties susceptible to the laws of physics.

And to blame banks and lending practices for racism puts the cart ahead of the horse.

Well before red lining blacks were treated like chattel. Our society - here- continued the practice economically and socially. See White Citizen’s Council and the Sovereignty Commission.

Churches are segregated as are schools - largely on economic bases.

You should read more and quit attempting to sound bright...it’s not effective.

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.
