Good job, Sheriff Mason, good job.

The Hinds County Sheriff Department dropped the ball earlier this week and turned loose a violent criminal even though he was supposed to remain in jail on a million dollar bond.


Ridgeland police arrested two men suspected of robbing several convenience stores.  Bond was set at $1 million for Kenneth Lewis.   WLBT reported on February 8:

29-year-old Tramaine Pettaway and 28-year-old Kenneth Lewis have both been charged with three counts of armed robbery, aggravated assault and felons in possession of a weapon.  The judge set bond for Pettaway at $1.285 million and $1 million for Lewis.  Article.

Lewis is also suspected of participating in convenience store robberies in Brandon and Clinton.  A clerk was shot during a robbery at Lake Harbor Wine & Spirits. The suspects were held at the Madison County Jail.  Everything was moving along as it should in the Madison County criminal justice system until Hinds County became involved.

MDOC filed a motion to revoke the probation of Kenneth Lewis in Hinds County since he did not report to his probation officer.  Circuit Judge Jeff Weill held a revocation hearing last week.  However, it became clear that MDOC was unaware of the Ridgeland arrest.  MDOC decided to withdraw its warrant and petition for revocation so it could resubmit the petition with the new information.  A felony arrest or indictment could result in the imposition of a suspended sentence on Lewis.

However, Hinds County deputies simply turned Lewis loose on his own recognizance even the Madison County Sheriff's Department notified HCSD that Lewis was to remain in custody and returned to the Madison County jail.  The notices that were sent to HCSD are posted below. 

HCSD notified the Madison County jail on February 15 that it would transport Lewis to the Raymond Detention Center on February 21 for the revocation hearing.  Madison gave the transportation deputy a detainer notice stating that Lewis must be returned by February 27.  The notice also stated that Lewis was charged in Madison County with aggravated assault with a weapon and armed robbery.  The detainer was signed by the deputy and said at the bottom "Must return by next Tuesday!!"  The copy posted below was faxed from Hinds to Madison Tuesday. 

Lewis is not in custody despite being under a million dollar bond.  Ridgeland police only caught him after a high-speed chase took place.

Thus a man accused of committing some violent crimes was put back on the streets because someone at the Raymond Detention Center can't read.  Nice.

Can someone explain to me how the date on that fax is 2/27/18? Clearly they just filed the detainer in Madison. The system is just screwed

This kind of stuff happens all the time with slic vic mason. Tywrong had plenty of these flubups as well. Hinds county has to elect a leader that will get crime under control quickly. Someone who will be able to run the sheriff’s office with military precision and stop this type of foolishness.

Anonymous said...

First of all if you could read, it clearly states thst a Hinds County Judge ordered the inmate to be released. After that it doesn't matter what the Madison COUNTY SO or Victor Mason had to say about the inmate.
You people should recognize that under Tyrone's leadership people weren't released, they just left. They should also know that he was awful as a Sheriff. This not arresting black folk that Juan Cloy speaks of is stupid. They are the ones committing the crimes and Torrence Mayfield is a grin on with a criminal background that currently is being investigated about guns. So save it. Crime is down since we elected Mason. Proof is when The mayor posted the crime ratings on facebook. Then also when you renew your home owners insurance policy. Save it. He will be the Sheriff.

So I guess you can't post the truth. You people are sick. I guess you on Mason bc he wouldn't pay you like Tyrone did so you wouldn't talk about him. You people are sick.

That's dumb. Victor bought an ad on this site too. Right before the primary.

Torrence Mayfield better stay where he is and be greatful the state allows him to wear a badge. He never even went to the academy. Yarber had the JPD academy falsify his paperwork. That punk quit the first time he went. He just likes playing cops and robbers. Nate Ross.... the guy can barely right his own name and that's a fact. Last time he was promoted he came to work and literally cried because he didn't know how to do his job. He's a punk too. Ole Vicky Mason.... biggest punk of all. Way too easy to target that guy. He does more damage to himself than I could ever do to him posting a comment. Let stop wasting time and get on with the next move. Just step down Vicky so Spooner can get in there and fix your mess. Dummy.....

Anonymous said...

Excuse me 4:35 but a Hinds County Judge can not order an inmate to be released on Madison County charges. If he ordered them to release him on Hinds County charges and there is a Madison County detainer on him he has to be returned to Madison County. The crime rate in Jackson has nothing to do with Victor, most shifts he is lucky to have 2 or 3 men covering the whole county more or less cover Jackson. If you check his felony arrest record, number of cases cleared it is the lowest of any Hinds SO sheriff. The number of felony indictments and arrest are the lowest... and in Hinds county be for real. What he does excel in is the number of law suits in his first year 3 for sexual harassment which in part consist of text from his personal cell phone. Speak of criminal it seems I remember a fb post that contained documents which proved Victor fraudulently used the FBI credit card when he was on the task force to the tune of $2,500.00 to buy himself some suits so he could look good. He borrowed the money from another officer to pay off the credit card so the FBI didn't indict but didn't pay the officer back and he took Vic to Hinds County Justice court to get his money, paperwork is a matter of public record. From the videos that recently came out of the jail it appears the conditions in the jail are worst than they have ever been, and then there is the memo... brilliant. With the exception of Kingfish Vic has the local news in his back pocket and the don't report the facts that we need to know only what they want us to know.

5:28 I believe you meant WRITE his own name not RIGHT his own name. We need a sheriff who can give a speech without cussing every other word and doesn't get his daily dose of vitamins from a Bud light. One who is honest has integrity and doesn't abuse those he arrest.

Anonymous said...

He can't order for Madison but he can order for Hinds County. That means Madison must go and pick him up again. It's been done wrong for so many years so people think it was right. I don't care if he bought an ad, he didn't pay you a monthly allowance to you. He is no punk bc he stood up to you punks now you try and drag him thro ugh the mud bc you think you have a platform, you don't. Spooner online buying sex on Ashley Madison, Tyrone beating women and abusing his employees, No one wanted to work wit Juan Clog at JPD so he left saying he was tired of arresting blacks. Lol. Yyou people are sick. I agree Mayfield wants to play police. He is a CRIMINAL. You people are awful. Facts are there are no escapees, crime in the county areas is down, there are no issues at the Sheriff's department other than punks like you all that change your names and the ones that had to leave the Sheriff's Office for mistreating Victors employees. You people are sick. Facts are the facts.

6:53 if you read the post carefully you will understand it was not Vic I was referring to about the cussing or drinking or abusing suspect., I was referring to his post and his candidates. But it is hard to abuse anybody if your not making arrest, clearing cases or indicting crimminals referring to Vic now. I get my facts and from recorded statistics where do you get your mess. Just google search Vic or search this this site for facts that are backed up by documentation, pictures or Video. If an inmate is removed from the Madison County Detention Center by Hinds County and there is a detainer put on that inmate by Madison County even if a Hinds County Judge orders him to be released of Hinds County charges it is still the responsibility of Hinds County to return the inmate after Hinds County charges are satisfied. The transportation officer picking up the inmate signs an acknowledgement of a detainer and when he is to be returned. Which according to the Madison County paperwork in this blog was done. If Hinds County S O wasn't going to return what they borrowed then they at least owed Madison County the courtesy of calling them to get him instead of turning another dangerous criminal on the street. It isn't like we don't have enough on the streets without turning ones who have been caught back out... no excuses

As a citizen who has had family members and friends effected by cancer I was shocked to see that Victor Mason was the only candidate, out of 22 others, in the real men wear pink cancer campaign that didn't raise 1 penny. All the other candidates were dressed to the tee in suits and studio picture while Victor Mason is dressed in a golf shirt and looks like he is in a parking garage, what happened to the suits that were mentioned in an earlier post he bought with the FBI credit card. If I was a man making $10,000.00 dollars a month I would have least donated $1,000.00 dollars to myself as not to end up with zero. But that takes a real man and real men don't allegedly sexually harass women. Funny the Rankin County Sheriff and Madison County Sheriff could dress up in suits in studio photos and raise a substancial amount of money for a very worthy cause, an embarrassment to Hinds County and the badge.

Clearly you do not know what you speak about. The entire Sheriff's department wore pink it's all over his page. They do an outstanding job dealing with the community. They work with UMC, They hosted events in reference to breast cancer. SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE FISHING. There has never been a sheriff's DEPT. Or police dept to do the things that they have done. Besides, I do my research and I know whose behind this mess. Wes Snyder who's mad because he can no longer be over the Kroger detail on 55. This entire thing is baseless. King fish supported the man and now he doesn't because he didn't get a job. Cry baby cry baby, suck your mommas tit.

Sir or ma'am 9:12 it is easy enough to verify all you have to do is go to the real men wear pink webpage and it is in living color, pictures speak louder than words along with the amount that each candidate raised, Victor Mason raised zero and in golf shirt. So apparently you are misinformed about what is really going on in your department or with your sheriff. I don't doubt there are people in the S O who care about this issue and help but obviously Victor Mason ain't one of them unless it's getting him publicity. I don't know a Wes Snider. I read the law suits on here a night and what I found the most disturbing is where Victor Mason is offering Barnes a job and he says in his text and I quote "how does Lieutenant of Incestigations sound to you (SIC)" that really concerns me and is the signs of a disturbed person. I first gave him the benefit of the doubt as a typo so I tried typing it in as a text and spell check automatically changed to investigations, so no typo. Say what you want about Kingfish, he obviously made a bad choice in candidates as we all have at times, but I am a faithful follower of his blog and have yet to find him to be inaccurate on the stories I read which are usually backed up by documentation. I think since the event is over the pictures have been removed But you are in luck I took screen shots of the photos of all the candidates and the amount they raised. If you leave your name and contact info I will see to it you get copies. Thanks Kingfish for keeping us informed unlike other news outlets.

Lol, incest is having sex with your family. She's not his family. It's common for people to mispell words on a phone but I guess common isn't common to you. You do know Wes Snider. You spelled his name correctly. You, Byron Green, Spooner, Watts and the crew at the Baptist needs to stop it. You all make Hinds County look bad. Memory filed the same lawsuit at her job on the coast prior to coming to JPD. Barnes accused Ricky Richardson a Sergeant at JPD of the same thing. Memory was an idiot and never should have had the post. Good he realized when he did. Barnes is a basket case also.

Barnes also filed the same type complaint in Canton. Hmmm. That's fact

They have a foootball camp every year, keeping the youth off the streets.
Year 1 they were the first law enforcement agency in this state to ever have a live DUI accident simulation. They did this for every high school in the county I believe. They have partnered with every agency in this area to make this and other endeavors successful.
They collected items for flood victims in Crosby, MS and Baton Rouge. They collected items for the victims in Houstom, TX and transported it over to TX. They have started a Hunan trafficking unit. Something that has gone untouched prior to him. Maybe bc some the others prior to him like young boys and girls. They had breast cancer events and had several survivor speak as guest speakers. They have programs on sexual assault, Domestic Violence something Tyrone knows about, Active Shooter, They regular provide crime prevention tips and have personally come to my business and did an assessment of my business and thought me how to keep it safe in Jackson. Since they came I have not had a break in. They collected items for the tornado victims in Holmes County, feed the homeless and provide awareness on several other things. You all should attend the events and report on the positives. Changing every 4 years is not the solution. Most of you can't vote bc you don't live in Hinds County. Tyrone was wrong. He was a terrible man that capitalized on a movement with president Obama. He set this county back 20 years and this man is still cleaning up his mess, DOJ. This man is trying. The inmates are not leaving the jail everyday like they were. They are not rioting and tearing the place up LIKE THEY WERE. Crime is down county wide. It shouldn't be bc you don't like the person you destroy them. If they are trying and making process don't hold that he didn't raise any money f9r your favorite non profit against. Ask him to try harder this year. I hear he took a pay cut to give his jailors a pay raise that Tyrone didn't try to get for them. They had not had one since the 80's. So there are many positives.

Nothing surprises me anymore . Every voting citizen of Hinds County needs to feel a little embarrassed by this act. If someone was seriously injured or worse by this person it could be another million dollar lawsuit which the tax paying citizens of hinds county would have to pay. The releasing clerk and Booking Sgt/Supervisor should be on leave without pay.

3:35 if you would have completely read my post I said I tried to give Victor the benefit of the doubt. But when I typed the word incestigations into a text box auto-correct automatically changed it to investigations, I had to force it to take incestigation, so no mistake. If all the things you say about Barnes are true, thrn that doesn't say much about Victor's choice in women or employees especially one he is promising to make a lieutenant. He should done a better job of vetting, what does that say about his employees of lesser rank. The fact that Barnes, Matory and Jones have all these text messages from Victors personal cell phone proves their case, doing that all the while claiming to be a Godly man. You ask me doing all these things while being married speaks a lot to his morals and Christian values. according to the law suit Victor sent Barnes a video of two males engaged in a sexual act,one a JPD officer. Why would a male send that to a female, very disrespectful, and you have to ask where did he get the cell phone video? Was he there? The fact that I know how to spell Snider proves nothing more than I know how to spell. Why did Victor sending a email to all employees inviting them to take off work with pay to go to Rankin County CMCF to watch a play written by a female inmate from another county incarcerated for mother. Almost 20 employees gathered at the Raymond Detention Center and loaded up in county vehicles, which is a misuse of county resources and employees, all tax payers should be alarmed by this. Maybe if people at work maybe criminal wouldn't be released from jail. While real men wear pink has nothing to do with his law enforcement skills, which he appears to be lacking in as well as leadership skills, it does show his lack of commitment to a cause. Rankin and Madison sheriff's were fully committed to the cause and dressed the part. Victor was kicked off the task force for fraudulently using the FBI credit card, which is a felony, and banned from testifying in Federal court for lack of credibility. By the way I do have documentation on the CMCF event if you would like to see it. Does not matter if you know who I am or not facts are facts.

Anonymous said...

4:03 Plenty of sheriffs before Victor have provided aide to disaster victims and set up youth programs especially McMillin this is nothing new. What they did do is keep our county safe and the jail ran properly. They have no reason to break out of jail, although they have had escapes and unexplained inmate deaths, apparently you haven't seen the latest videos from inmates that have come out of the jail. They each have at least two cell phones all smoking joints and all the marijuana they can smoke, the shame of it is they don't even try and hide their faces and they don't even try and hide the dope or their cell phones. They have ripped out the light fixtures from the ceiling and hot wired their cell phone chargers into them, the jail is filthy and you can't hardly see the paint for the writing and graffiti on the wall. All you have to do is go to youtube and type in Hinds County Detention Center and look at partying at HCDC or getting by at HCDC. These videos came out in Oct. and Nov, of 2017 from inmates who are currently incarcerated. Why did Lee Vance stop working with Victor and joint ventures and why do the heads of other law enforcement agency heads say all they get from Victor is lies and non-cooperation. According to the law suits it's apparent maybe Victor should attend some of his own classes because sexual harassment classes because that is a form of abuse and certainly disrespect. All the programs you speak of are not new for a sheriff but it would be good to see some good aggressive law enforcement from this administration. The reason nobody knows these things is the news is not covering them like they did Tyrone.

Anonymous said...

The reason why There's no news coverage is the inmates aren't rioting like they did under Tyrone is because, Victors running the jail at 13% capacity on each shift, The Inmates are running the jail and they're not going to riot to bring any media attention to themselves, it's that simple!

Victor puts patrolman and whoever else in the jail when the DOJ makes their rounds to say look at Me! And he's still, only at 13%..
And that's the DOJ numbers, not my imagination.

Word is Victors ill, Pete's ill, I don't wish any harm on anyone, a year and a half left on his term or at least until August. Maybe all of this will give Victor his out and not run again.

Lawsuits in November, signups are in March the next year. This will only get worse for Victor and his people. He's hired too many ass kissers and wanna bee's and they all know their time is slowly slipping away.

Victor disappointed EVERYBODY who helped get him elected. I'll give him 8% if he runs again. Come on Victor, DO IT.!

All these other names, Lewis, Graham, Rhodes, Thompson, Tannihill, Ross, Cloy..
They'll collect their money and ride off off into the Sunset laughing, with other peoples money, all knowing they didn't have a chance.

What a sad tragedy just to get money.

Lol, the jail is not out of control. Everytime they get a pack in and they get phones, the phones are confiscated. I have also observed Mason arrest several people for bring the packs in. Aggressive law enforcement, the county area is safe. When Tyrone was Sheriff, I was afraid to leave home. Juan Clog doesn't want to arrest black people. That's why he got out of law enforcement. He wants law enforcement to do mental assessments, somethikng they are not qualified to do. Also if a woman files the same suit at 3 different agencies, who is really being disrespectful?

Regardless of what you think of the lawsuits, they're real and their going to happen and Mason will be found guilty on a Cival charge and he'll be exposed for the sexual pervert and predator he is. He chose to hire those women thinking he was building his Hiram ( lol ) but it backfired on him.

He has not kicked their doors in or treated people bad because of their race like McMillian and McAdory did during their time. Under McAdory, blacks could not drive a patrol vehicle. I honestly don't believe those women. It seems like they have done the same things at other places and it is ridiculous.

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!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
