Sheriff a no-show

Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason did not appear in U.S. District Court in Gulfport this afternoon.  The court granted his request to be excused from the hearing that was scheduled to discuss the federal consent decree for the Hinds County detention centers.

Why have a hearing if the star witness doesn’t show? Star perpetrator? Whatever he is, what’s the purpose?

If a court hearing happens and nobody shows up was it a court hearing? I assume the county got smashed by the judge.

Didn't people fly in from all over the country at taxpayers expense for a meeting that was specifically about the sheriff? Are the Feds about to invade Hinds County?

Health??

I voted for Victor and I regret doing so. He's way over his head and provides absolutely no leadership. Too bad he can't be responsible for the tax payer money that was wasted due to his absence. If those in office all over the country were held more accountable for wasted money maybe results would be more evident

The sheriff is battling prostate cancer and is currently going through chemo.

7:57 ! I was wondering if it was gonna be said..
Words out now.

Many of us voted for Victor because he was the lesser of two evils between he and Lewis and that's how bad everyone wanted Tyrone out.
But, since Victor was groomed and worked under Mac, we believed we'd get the same type of mentality. Victor got sworn in and completely turned his back on all of his friends, supporters and staff, who are the very ones who got him elected.

Guarantee This, all the votes he received in the general election are all gone. He barely won in the primary to say the least.

So it's a wrap folks...

Spooner for Sheriff

Who the hell is "Spooner"?

Victor and Mac are one in the same. Yall defend Mac for the same politics and take his side because of his skin color, but go back and look at the fights he picked with Phil Fisher and the BOS over the jail and raises for his select few friends.

At least Tyrone Lewis always wished everyone a Happy Valentine's Day.

Ran into and met Spooner the other day. I must say, a very impressive individual. The kind you would like to see in the sheriff role. I was impressed and have to say, if he were to run against any of the current folks he’d definitely get my vote and a whole lot of others. A real straight foward speaking, no nonsense, likable guy.

4:35 that could not have been Richar Spooner you met. the reason is he is foul mouthed person who has no morals in his entire body. This is coming from a non Victor guy as I have nothing nice to say about him.

If Spooner or someone else is elected do all the patrol cars and trucks have to be repainted.

I’m pretty sure it was Richard Spooner that i met. The guy definitely had his head screwed on straight. Obviously i can’t speak to the reason you feel they way you do about him, but i can definitely speak to what I experienced and the man is definitely a leader.

The Hinds County Sheriff Office has been lacking leadership for quite some time now, that I know for sure.

Spooner will NOT be the next sheriff of Hinds County, so kill that!

I remember the folks like you saying the same thing about Mac and others come to think of it, and then they had to eat crow...in all of the inner working circles of leadership in Hinds County the man definitely has a positive presence. That’s more than we can say for any of the other names mentioned for sheriff

I thought Larry Nesbitt was being groomed, if by nobody other than himself. He was seen at a pawn shot on 18 last month pricing gold stars and was overheard asking, "Why can't I have FIVE? I want FIVE!"

Anonymous said...

Enough of the grooming i just want the out of control crime brought under control. If the sheriff has health problems whose running the show? Is there a plan? That’s what we elect officials to do, plan and spend our money wisely so that we get the public services that don’t leave us in the cold like a third world country

I guess Roger Dodger is posting these comments about Victor Again.

Just shows you how much Victor’s staff cares about Hinds county. We’ll remember your snide comments after we elect someone else, and then you’ll get an appropriate position to match your integrity level, better known as the door

Anonymous said...

All these last few negative comments are Victor or Tyrones people pissed off, because their guy didn't get it done and they know they're gone when Spooner gets in.

The thing is This, the two had alot of under qualified people working in made up positions and being highly paid. Those days are gone.

That's all these folks have left is deflecting and trying to degrade Spooner, who's had nothing but a stellar career.

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.
