Clerk shot in Ridgeland robbery

A clerk was shot during a robbery of a Ridgeland liquor store tonight.   Two men robbed Lake Harbour Liquor tonight. The victim was shot in the torso and getting treatment at a local hospital.  The injuries are not life-threatening.  The two suspects entered the store and grabbed an unknown amount of money from the cash register.  Police are trying to obtain a description of the suspects.

What’s going on in Madison County??

The crime rate in Madison County is alarming. I’m afraid even Costco won’t be able to fix this

Unfortunately for Madison County, it's adjacent to Hinds County and Jackson.

10:01 - Nothing much. Just the usual. Roaches from the kitchen (Jackson) invading the living room (Madison County). Hard to keep them little fellers contained.

In Jackson they post signs saying "No Roaches". In Madison County, we tend to stomp on 'em. Makes a delightful cracking sound.

I can assure you that those apartments on lake harbor in Ridgeland have caused this to happen. Crime increases as well as school overcrowding. Remember when primos was robbed a few times and Ridgeland PD later found the suspects living at the apartments there.

6:00 am Most of know that if you have roaches in the kitchen you have roaches all over the house. Most of us don't stomp them, we have pest control for the whole house.
The whole house is Mississippi and as long as people like you don't see yourselves as part of the problem and necessary to the solution, the house will stay infested!

Hwy 51 turns into State Street just a short distance down the road. Easy access back to west Jackson.

I'm intrigued 7:07. You say "we have pest control for the whole house." What do you mean by that exactly? And "as long as people like you don't see yourself as part of the problem?" Come again? I doubt 6:00 a.m. was one of the ones robbing the liquor store on Lake Harbour. So please tell the rest of us not as enlightened as you how to not be part of the problem (as you indicate). Make sure you copy all the legislators and elected officials across the state, as well. I'm sure they could benefit from such wisdom.

i thought the county line was enough to prevent crime. we're so tough on crime in madison/rankin counties that we don't have crime like hinds.

jail isn't a bad time for these people...it gives them street cred.

Madison county has gotten so dangerous! Where are we going to flee to next??

This is going to continue to happen at an increasing rate until everyone realizes crime isn't just a "Jackson" problem. Madison and Rankin county can throw stiff sentences at the criminals from Jackson who perpetrate crimes in those counties, but that will never fix the root of the problem. Things will get worse for everyone in the metro area until people are willing to work together to improve the entire metro, not just the burbs.

The difference is in Rankin and Madison counties, he won't be back on the street in a year or two to do it again. A judge won't be waiving his prison sentence if he goes to a so-called boot camp. The case won't languish on the docket for three years while he commits more crimes out on bond. There won't be a catch & release.

Donkeycrats can't even fix Jackson and other similar Dem controlled dumps nationwide but then y'all want to import more unskilled, diseased and impoverished. Screw that!

10:16 so you agree with Trump,good for you, can't find many that will admit that they are blatant racist.

9:43 and 10:12, when was the last time either of you stepped foot in Northpark Mall?? There is nothing wrong with Northpark Mall other than people like you giving it a bad rap from behind your keyboard.

This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Ridgeland is a dump. It's just Jackson Jr.

Anonymous said...

But the Mayor of Ridgeland is a Vegan and rides his bike, so everything is wonderful.

1:18,

I did not say it did look like Metro Mall, I said it will in 5 years.

You must be a product of Jackson Public School's reading program !!!

Kingfish said...

Nothing wrong with Northpark. Go there quite a bit. No problems at all. But then, some people are scared of their own shadows.

Kingfish,

IT'S NOT YOUR SHADOW YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT !!!!!!

10:12 here. I was in Nothpark last weekend (1/6/18).
How about you? Been there lately? It looks like Metrocenter, feels like Metrocenter.

Making idiot statements about someone you don't know? That takes real balls. LOL.

Wow as soon as I compared them to Trump, they stopped the cockroach references. Just goes to show you that they really identify with the President.

7:07 ,who always inserts nonsense about 'crime being everywhere', is exactly the biggest part of the problem. Head in the sand. Unaccountable. Ignorant. Pretentious. Alarmingly uninformed. In denial.

Roaches tend to congregate in what they consider their 'safe space'. And when they think it's safe to scatter around the house, and retreat, they'll do that. But, if you spray well enough in the living room, they'll avoid that area - except the dumbest of them. And if you sit in the kitchen with a fly swatter, they'll figure you out and realize you're a joke.

In this scenario, the different rooms in the house are owned by different folks and there is no 'Pest Control for the whole house'.

9:25"Things will get worse for everyone in the metro area until people are willing to work together to improve the entire metro, not just the burbs"

I keep hearing how we all should work together but have no idea what that means or how that can be done. Work together??? What can a middle aged white man do to assist young black soldiers from doing crimes which terrorize white people and black folks alike when even black responsible people try to move away and keep their kids from the wolves. Wolves are a protected species and can do no wrong or are not held responsible so they do have little incentive to do right. They are not held to the same social standards as the rest of society.

Willing to work together? Are you a citizen of Jackson? Remember the warning given to law enforcement from other areas. Remember the rocks, bottles, and bricks?
Is that the meaning of "working together" you speak about?

North park is safe. I leave Madison and go shop there. Great stores and a good police presence. Safer than the strip centers in Flowood.

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.
