I have a hard time believing those stats.
We already had more homicides that that weeks ago.
Did some of those killed come back to life?

The field house boys are not going to like this!

This is great news. Thank you JPD and Chief Vance!

Do they still say at the COMSTAT meetings that crime is down "a negative 12 percent!?!" Two negatives equal a positive...Thanks, JPS!

JPD loves to minimize crimes or just change the crime itself to reflect these BS numbers.

I.e, House Burglary/Larceny; Agg Assault/ simple assault; Auto Burg/ Pettit larceny.
What a joke.

Do they think they are fooling anyone? Is it for their benefit that they cook the books?
Do they think if they keep lying to us crime will actually drop?
There has to be some reason for all of the fake numbers.
I remember last year the number of homicides were going backward about this time of the year.
Damn, I just thought of something. Is 56 as far as any of the cops can count?
That I can believe.

Looks like Lee Vance's directive to under report and misclassify crimes continues. Please let the new mayor wake up and kick Vance to the curb!

We’re at 59 homicides right now. That’s the official count from JPD’s Commander Jones. It’s also current through this COMSTAT range because we haven’t had a new killing since Nov. 27.

What say ye, JPD?

There are lies, damned lies and statistics....

I know I'm weird, but I actually keep track of these things when they make the news. I've got 57 plus two justified for a total of 59. My notes also show 97 others have been shot, but not died. With a little better aim we'd be pushing the murder rates of the late 90's.

Lumumba is kicking butt and it’s driving all you Repubs crazy!! Keep up the good work Mr Mayor. I look forward to the day you run for a state wide office and you get to bring your skills and message to the entire state!

Justice is a troll. And white. He’s not fooling anyone.

Those of us who live in Precinct 4 know that while any crime is bad, crime in our precinct has been less than that those living in many cities where the variables would make for valid comparisons.
Crime in Jackson is primarily in west and south Jackson. Precincts 1 ( downtown) and 4 are safer than many cities with far more law enforcement resources in comparable downtowns and downtown residential areas.
I continue to be aware of crimes where Madison residents I personally know have been victims but have never been reported. Perhaps, the Madison police fail to report those crimes because these are people who don't want their names in the paper for other than their social activities.
Statistical data doesn't lie, people lie. The data has to be a representative and sufficient sample of the universal data and it has to be gathered and analyzed in the same way when comparing statistics from different areas of the " universe".
It's those with an agenda that don't use valid data who lie. Math is math.
Too many of those commenting have never even looked to see if Madison and Jackson use the same reporting methods or which methods the FBI recommends or how the demographics differences affect national comparisons. Nor do you know the competence level of those in charge of gathering and reporting the data.
Some of you are making it rather obvious that you will believe anything you want to be true and know nothing about math, much less statistics.

The Niknarians are out in force. Jackson improves, flight falls alongside cookie-cutter home values and the proliferation of Mexican restaurants (just none of those “fancy” ones that charge for chips). Better get to calling it “fake news” ASAP.

I have owned a home/lived in Jackson all my life. I currently reside in Precinct 4 and you are completely outside of your mind.

9:51, how does all of that line of bull excuse JPD for using false figures?
Does it mean JPD can just pull a number out of their ass when it comes to the number of people killed?

You know crime is bad when even the drug pushers have to have Jackson police provide an armed guard for them.

10:24 am I am basing what I wrote on the data of where crime actually occurs by precinct.
And, I actually know how crime statistics are generated.
I suspect your basis is " word of mouth" and remembering the " good old days".
In " the good old days" some crimes weren't reported at all...not by the police or the media. That is particularly true of rape.
" Outside of your mind" is an odd turn of phrase but was amusing as I suspect you suffer from " out of sight, out of mind".

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. 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.
