Chief to discuss police brutality allegations

Update (9:50 AM): Chief Moore said he placed the officer on administrative leave pending an investigation.  The video of press conference is posted below.


JPD Chief Anthony Moore will hold a press conference at 9:30 to discuss allegations that a JPD officer beat a suspect while handcuffed.   WAPT will stream the presser on Facebook Live while WLBT will broadcast it on its website.  WAPT reported the story last night.  The suspect's father, John Knight, posted this message and these pictures on Facebook last night:


This really really got me and my wife hurt to our hearts for this to happen to our son in our city . John was driving down county line road leaving the skybox place when he noticed and police got behind him before he made it to cross over to the other side of county line the police bincent (Vincent) lampkin at that time threw on the lights and John immediately turned his signal light on and turned on the frontage road and pulled over right in front of the Olive Garden he put the car in park let the window down because of the tint put his hands out the window with his phone in his hand to make sure the officer knew it was a phone and not a weapon officer lampkin then instructed John to cut the car off which he did and then officer lampkin snatched John out the car by his neck and slammed him face first to the ground in the frontage road and cocked his service pistol and put it to the back of my son head cuffed him and punched him in his face and then drug him out of the street to the curb and then snatched his phone and threw it went thru the car and took the cuffs of my son and told him I guess I’ll let you go . Our son is a very responsible and respectful young Jt black man that is in the deans list at his community college and just signed a full scholarship with Utah state in which he leave for school next month . Why did this have to happen to our son he is one of the good ones not a bad bone in his body and this officer was not in his jurisdiction and that’s why he didn’t call it in or call for back up and then after he did all that he sped off in his patrol car this is so wrong and we will not stand here and let this happen it’s on

Well of course it was police brutality and their son was an angel. Tell me when the police sides of the story and his dash cam video is online.

He was leaving the Skybox?

Maybe Ray Ray called the cops on him because he sent his lemon pepper chicken wings back too many times.

Cop needs to be arrested for kidnaping and aggravated assault. No charges, no explanation just unjustified aggression

Did anyone else cringe while reading that?

It just maybe like I heard judge Joe Brown said to a cat that looked like him,,,,,Son you were just being too black,that's why this happened to you.

"Cocked his service pistol....." Ether daddy has gotten an embellished story, or JPD has significantly downgraded their service weapons.

Put Ladd in charge. She reads and attends conferences and goes to NYC to retrieve grist for her mill. She is an expert on all things when it comes to police and law enforcement.

You don’t “cock” a glock, and more than likely an officer carried his service weapon “hot”. This is nothing more Han an embellishment to make the story sound better.

Son may be on the deans list, but whoever wrote that story hasn’t passed 8th grade English.

The police car video should answer a lot of questions in this case. If there is no video I would tend to think the cop has a big problem. There are some bad cops not many but they are there and unfortunately are sometime tolerated by the good ones

I just came here to read the comments.

It hurts my heart to see ANYONE mistreated. Period. Exclamation point! (spelled out for emphasis) It is also disturbing when there is a rush to judgement about EVERYTHING. Stop the insanity. It is unproductive and only exacerbates the problems. I, for one, will be awaiting the facts. We would all be well served to remember that we live in a sinful world. There are bad people who will make mistakes. If the officer is wrong, let justice take it's course. If the young man was wrong, let justice take it's course. If they both were, then let justice take it's course. We do still live in a country where one is innocent until proven guilty......or, do we? I hope so.

Does anyone know anything about the claims that several cars were shot on I-55 South, around the Northside or Lakeland exits? I heard that they caught the person or persons that were responsible for it.

I have a feeling this is personal.

Cop is black, victim is black, chief is black, city is black...

But someone will try to hang it on racism.

10:49... it was 2 cars and yes they caught the person. Over a week ago he was caught. It was near I-55... seems a small fish story turned into a whopper. Geez.

Daddy can sure give a very detailed account for not having been there. Deans list son must habe had a dash cam video going inside his 'tinted window' vehicle for them to be able to provide a step by step account - even noting thst son put on his turn signal. Amazing that all the specific details are showing that fu ture Utah State dean's list son was totally innocent and that mean old cop (who had to cock his service revolver) was the bad guy

The correct legal term is EXCESS FORCE, not police brutality.

Mary wants a Skybox on 51 said...

The most eye-opening thing in this story is that the Skybox is still open. There must be a bigger demand for daiquiris and rap on County Line than I thought.

When is the Skybox Madison opening? Remember when the owner went on camera claiming they were BEGGING him to open one in Madison, then pointed a gun at the camera and threatened to, "put a beam on yo' ass"?

Good memories in the City with Soul...

What we have is failure to communicate. It should be common knowledge that those folks living south of County Line Road should not cross into Ridgeland. Stay on your side of the line and things will go better for y'all.

A HIGH RANKING VICE LORD'S SON WAS BEAT BY POLICE IS WHAT THE HEADLINE SHOULD BE

My Cousin Vinny said...

Make no mistake, he's going to Utah State, not the University of Utah. Those guys are the "Utes".

Anonymous said...

Where is Carlos the Clown on this one... he probably is more selective about the cases he takes considering he hasn't won anything. In fact I would say he would be a major liability to use as a lawyer now as opposed to a resource. The guy just is unaware.

Utah State does not list anyone from Ms or anyone named John on their 2018 football roster.

Waiting for Donna Ladd to get back from her NYC journo junket so that he can synchronize the filing of his lawsuit with a Jackson Free Press smear job.

Kingfish said...

That so-called Vice Lord member did his time and spends his time mentoring yewts to keep them from going down the wrong path. In other words, he went down the wrong path, paid a price, figured it out, and tries to make a difference in other lives. Of course, redemption is only for white folks and embezzlers who pay everything back because they are sorry.

James Earl Jones said...

Well spoken, Kingfish.

It's a shame this is being tried on WLBT.

Its my understanding that Jackson Police cars do not have dash cams. JPD rely on security cams from business near by.

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.
