What happened to the body cameras?

The Hinds County Sheriff's Department purchased sixty body cameras and a server in 2015 yet they are nowhere to be found among the deputies.

Sheriff Tyrone Lewis spent $31,000 on the equipment in 2015.  Money obtained through asset forfeitures funded the purchases.  The purchase orders are posted below.  Several deputies field-tested the cameras.  However, Hinds County sources said the equipment is currently in storage and has been for quite some time instead of being distributed to the deputies.

Kingfish note: Inability to produce a policy and procedures manual, wasting $30,000 spent on body cameras and putting them in storage,  spending jail budget on other things while in trouble with the feds over the jail... it adds up after awhile.

Horrible use of taxpayer dollars.

Oh well, who cares...

You obviously don't understand how this works.

By leaving the cameras in storage, none of them will get damaged. Damaged cameras = having to spend tax dollars to fix them. This actually saves the county money because the cameras will be new and pristine when they want to lok at them. Moreover, this is like investing in baseball cards. Once they are opened, they are less valuable. Think of these as collector's items.

Tyrone should be the CEO of Merrill Lynch.

Obviously, Victor can't allow his dummies to make him look bad as his incompetent men violate the communities rights as their on patrol or narcotics, all ONE of them, as he's disbanded them and made them report to the jail.

Victor knows their all liabilities to him while they should be wearing them. He just keeps losing his good folks and keeping the idiots.
Great job DUMMY !

Victors finished and more things to come.

Hey Victor, how about another Public announcement to deflect and lie about this one, like you did about Kingston Frasier and the Amber Alert..

Come on buddy, please, keep entertaining us.

Looks like Kingfish gotcha again. Man how you've pissed off the wrong guy Victor..

Is this another of Kingfish's race-baiting threads? Nothing has been posted about waste at the S.O. in Rankin, Madison or Warren. It's been over a month since we've heard about the sheriff in Madison County mistreating black folk. We never hear about it happening in Warren. Rankin whoops up on the haids of anybody using I-20 who is brown.

Isn't it funny to see how all of Victors right hand men, eventually and inevitably have a fallen out with him..

My my, how things always change, but always always stay the same.

If you all can't see the writing on the wall..
You deserve it, when you get it.

Reliable sources have told me that Victor is waiting on Leftenant Graham to conduct a series of training classes on the new camera units. Graham is well known in the Metro for his training classes. The cameras will be rolled out in time for the holiday shopping-and-arrest season. Hold your horses. You People are so impatient.

Absolutely amazing, the level of stupidity of this guy and the decisions he keeps making..

From what I hear, even the people he thought was smart, are actually as dumb, if not dumber than he is, that he's surrounded himself with.

Ole Pete Luke, Rushings, all the Admin, y'all know it's a one and done show for Victor..

Sadly, 2:43, you will watch with me as he is reelected.

@5:47, not sadly. You obviously don't have your ear to the ground and obviously don't live in Hinds County, Who all will make that statement, based on Race.

This won't be based on a race campaign. It'll be based on experience and a history of doing the right thing and not telling the voters what they wanna hear, just to be elected and then literally, turn your back on all who got you elected in the first place.

Change is coming, Spooner will be your next Sheriff and it won't be based on race..

Get your popcorn ready folks. This won't even be a close race.

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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
