Task force to study releasing JPD officer names involved in shootings

Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba issued the following press release.

The word "ID" is a strange abbreviation. "I" stands for "I" and "D" stands for "dentification", "D" is doing most of the leg work here.

I have lived and worked in Jackson for over 70 years and I have never heard of even one of these people.

Cops shoots gang member.
Gang member shoots up cops house.
That's what's going to happen, right?

@1:43pm, it's a mix of radical leftist/racialist activists and JPD officers.

Ahhhh yes, CJ Lawrence, Esquire's name is on the list. He was big in the "if they gunned me down" hashtag movement even posting about which photo would they use if he were to be shot in the course of a crime and a myriad of other racial subjects. I'm sure he will be very fair, balanced, and unbiased. I hope I am proved incorrect, but I see this as the bold new City's chance to make racial history. They will out white on black police shootings, but will justify black on white, or black on black(if it were to occur).

"The task force consists of community members who have a deep rooted understanding of community, policy, advocacy, and COMMUNITY ORGANIZING across multiple sectors, both at the local and national levels." Read that a few times and see how it sounds.

@ 1:43, well it's a bond new city, not the same one you have lived in for 70 years. Props for being up on the internets at 70+ and staying engaged.

@2:17, since most of the city's residents are out on bond and the city desperately needs to issue some bonds to perform it's basic services, your "bond new city" typo is more apropos than you could have ever intended. Thank you, or "props" to you, for a moment of levity on this Monday afternoon. Word to your mother.

Why was the honorable Enoch Sanders A.K.A. "The Cat In The Hat" omitted from this committee?
You KNOW he has the interest of his peoples at heart.

This is certainly laughable...

Atty Lambright and the mayor's sister....

I suppose Ms Rukia Lumumba is on the list to keep the mayor informed of what each person has to contribute?

Hmmmm...I see more "Task Forces" coming in the future. Road Repair Task Force, Plight Houses Task were elected now get to work making decisions and if you make bad decisions then there's a way of knowing...ask all the Former Mayors.

Antar had no prior experience with anything and it shows.

C'mon now, be honest, does anyone in Madison or Rankin County really care? This is simply a tight circle of people in a dying city who are trying to give the appearance of doing the right thing. Sound and fury....signifying nothing!

Virginia has developed a smart/best practice for this very thing. When an officer is involved in a use-of-force incident (deadly or otherwise), the state's fusion center does a risk assessment for the officer before his/her name is released. This allows the officer to take the necessary steps to keep his/her family safe. This policy, when implemented properly, has proven effective; however it requires strong departmental message discipline.

This is some serious made up shit, reading the press release reminds me of everything that is wrong with having a community organizer in a seat of authority - almost everything in that press release has nothing to do with police policy/procedure. The policy should be developed by the police department with the goal of protecting the officer from harassment and violence. My guess is that this will turn racial almost immediately and nothing will get done.

Am I hearing this correctly? JPS wants a new $80-$100 million bond issue? Unfreakingbelievable.

I wish Chokwe would hold one of these community organizing meetings in the Robert E Lee building. That would be classic.

At some point every Jackson resident with a high school diploma will be on a task force. Everybody works, the whole community is involved, there is shared governance and cooperative struggle. However, only hizhonor and his comrades get paid. Works good!

Soon 2% of the residents will pay 100% of the taxes and have O to say as to how the money is spent. The City will not be able to borrow or pay existing debt. The State will take over the Capital area and Jackson will officially go under in 10 years or less and the goose will be killed for the last egg.

It is sad, in this day and time, that such juvenile efforts evolve from the Capital City of any state.

A "task force" of individuals who have less experience in this city than some single solitary residents.

They will meet twice a month to determine how to handle a procedural issue that removes administrative oversight. This is the attempt to establish policy over people by trying to hide it in people over policy (task force).

I think the citizens of Jackson should develop a task force to meet bi-monthly in the Andrew Jackson Conference Room of the Warren G. Hood building, 200 S. President Street, to vet each and every member of this, so-called, Officer ID Task Force.

The task force only exists because Lumumba doesn't have the stones to make the anti-JPD officer changes he's already decided to make. The die has been cast. JPD officer shortages will soon get much worse after they get the bad news and realized they've been screwed.

With all the problems the mayor faces on a daily basis, this is what he considers a priority. You elected him Jackson... Good luck with that.

Saw on CL that the mayor put a convicted murderer on his task force.

Anonymous said...

Terun Moore is currently on parole for Capital Murder. A law enforcement review board with a convicted murderer sitting to police officers. It's a slap in the face to any one wearing a badge. It shows how anti-police the mayor is. Way to go, Baby Chok.

OK. I'll bite.

Name ONE officer RETRIBUTION incident in the U.S. in the last ten years.

Please don'r cite the incidents when officers were shot or assaulted at random.

Again, please name ONE specific officer RETRIBUTION incident.

HINT: There are NONE!

NEXT: How many unarmed, naked and obviously delusional African American men have been shot and killed by police at 20 yards?



NEXT: How many Black men armed with a water bottle have been shot by JPD?


Lord knows had that poor, identified by the officer as delusional, man been wielding a "Q-tip", his entire family would have been tracked down and wiped out post haste.

If those folks were at work, home with their family, or traveling to and from either, the chances would be less that they get in a situation. Seems as tho these are the ones who stay on the street corner, down a side alley, or even in the middle of the street thumping their chest, screaming, and daring anyone to challenge them.

Most societies don't condone this display of behavior. If a stupid person pushing it to extremes...

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.
