Cute

Theres Apel got the scoop of the week as she reported on how a brave little boy captured the Grinch before he could steal Christmas.




It all began with this phone call.



Which led to this.

So, all in all, the kid tied up the 911 line while people are having heart attacks, being robbed, involved in car accidents, etc. Not only was he unsupervised enough to call 911, but he is being rewarded for his behavior by the police patronizing him and the Clarion keeping this on the front page for two days in a row.

I just hope that kid doesn't start calling 911 on other folks he deems as a nuisance or troublemaker.

Let me guess. Your favorite episode of the Little Rascals was the episode where the mean old principal fired the teacher because she dared to have a birthday party for one of the little kids at school.

What a Scrooge 3:32 PM is! I love these happy stories, particularly during the Holidays. Thank Heavens the child knew how to dial 911. And, FYI, there are more than just one operators. Nothing was lost by his relying on the police to help him.

You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch. He needs to get the "Uncle George" treatment. I think I'll go pick up a few Roman candles on the way home. Yum Yum Eat 'em Up.

Has the Grinch bonded out? If so, I'm pretty sure he is 3:32.

Teaching the kid to be a snitch. Won't end well.

That’s a nice story and all, but I’m more interested in heading to Byram to see if I can get pulled over for some minor traffic offenses....

@3:32 PM is the sort of troll who gives JJ trolls a bad name. No doubt a Jackson Fake Press refugee.

LOL. I'm thinking 3:32 is the one who accused someone of "eating their children". The type of person who takes great pride in being able to "turn a phrase" without using vulgar language. Effete' to say the least.

3:32 here, everyone love to be hating on logic and reason but ... the Grinch ain't real and this ain't cute! This is like saying "Aww that's cute" and giving a kid a hug when he says "1 + 1 = 3." It's not like there is a shortage of Christmas spirit or cute kids so much that we must broadcast this bizarre episode of misuse of local police and emergency communications.

I'm hanging with Anon. 8:16 on this one. It was moderately cute the first time or two that I saw it, but it's been rebroadcast so many times in so many places now, even the national news, that a) I'm sick of seeing it and b) it wasn't really that cute in the first place. Kind of dumb/silly really. And now it even makes JJ? Really? Call me a Grinch, fine. Just not a Scrooge.

Grinches may not be real, but Grouches certainly are.

The same people who hate on this are the same people that complain that the police don’t do enough community outreach. The Byram PD totally made the best of this and manufactured some great PR. And the kid wants to be a police officer when he grows up! This is definitely something that the kid and his family will hold on to for the rest of his life. I’m sure the PD gave him a quick lesson on 911 etiquette after the fact in an educational manner. Good job, Mississippi.

I bet Christmas is a blast in the household of some of these folks making nasty comments. It does prove that there really are a lot of Grinches out there trying to steal Christmas

Louis LeFleur said...

I ain' hatin', ain' bein' nasty either. A merry and 911-free Christmas to all!

What a waste of taxpayer funded dollars and resources! How many other kids will be encouraged to do the same thing after hearing of this story, and how many lives will be put at risk when a legitimate 911 call gets delayed to a dispatcher because of one of these stunts? Shame on the Byram PD for glorifying this immaturity.

Other than that, Merry Christmas!

Based on some of the comments more arrest need to be made!

How can a five-year-old be considered immature? Wonderful story! Some of you are nucking futs.... Merry Christmas to all! Yes even the losers at 3:32 and 9:24.

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. 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.
