Canton Dog-Fighting Ring Indicted

A Madison County grand jury indicted four men for dog fighting last month. Madison County deputies busted the ring on November 4, 2017 after receiving an anonymous tip.

 The dog fighting ring operated off of Highway 43 in Canton.  Sheriff Randy Tucker's press release stated:

Deputies heard noises of dogs growling and barking coming from a wooded area in the rear of 645 Rankin Road. There, deputies observed four (4) black males surrounding two (2) pit bull dogs and noted that they were agitating the dogs towards one another, and then allowed them to fight. Deputies ordered them to stop and come towards them. One of the individuals, later identified as Maurice Greenwood, fled to his residence located at 637 Rankin Road, where he was captured on the back porch.

The owner of the property at 645 Rankin Road was identified as HB Preyer. At the scene, a search of the property revealed a homemade treadmill made of iron and wood that had short chains on it, which is commonly used to force fighting dogs to exercise. Also located on the property were medicine, food supplements, and antibiotics that are commonly used in dog fighting operations. Seized from the property was the exercising treadmill, three (3) mother dogs with a total of fifteen (15) puppies, as well as an additional fourteen (14) adult dogs. All appeared to be pit bulls and pit bull mixes.

All of the animals suffered from malnourishment and had not been properly taken care of and some did not have access to water. The dogs were taken into Law Enforcement custody and placed in a shelter.

 Deputies seized 32 dogs and various items of equipment used for dog fighting and training.

The grand jury indicted Derrick May and Maurice Greenwood for one count of dog fighting and one count of conspiracy for dog fighting. It also indicted Michael Brown and H.B. Preyer, III for nine counts of dog-fighting.

Posted below are pictures of the crime scene.

Kingfish note: Meanwhile, Canton's State Senator, Barbara Blackmon, opposes any penalty for dog fighting or animal cruelty.

Babs opposes penalties for dog fighting because she and her constituents see absolutely nothing wrong with it.

It's their culture.

If she could sue on behalf of the dogs and get her “40 %” she would have a different outlook. To oppose punishment for these types of individuals is inexcusable.

The Blackmons are the "new" leadership of the MS Democratic Party, which is why the Republicans have a super majority.

I think even a cat has more sympathy for dogs than Blackmon.

Babd son used to participate in the dog fighting business. He even had one the doggy treadmills set up at her house in Jackson. Babs and Eddie are crooks who wouldn’t have anything except they were chosen pimp jurors for big tobacco cases.

Babs won her senate seat with 4,832 votes...she’s a real powerhouse, end of sarcasm.

She’s worse than embarrassing!!!

Don't forget Joel Bomgar, R-Madison. He also opposed the bill that would increase the penalty for dog fighting.

Bomgar. Man that guy has been a disappointment.

What do you get when you mix the Republican color of red with the yellow belly of none other than Joel Bomgar? His orange color that he uses for his campaign literature and signs.

Orange-Julius...I mean Orange-Joel. The guy is a solid whiny loser. Publishes a weekly update consisting of zero meat or substance. He failed to mention his nay vote on the dog abuse penalty.

Please let's send this guy back to his regular job. He can sell orange shirts at The Rogue.

Bumgar’s a libertarian. I can understand his vote on those grounds.

I don’t agree with it, but I understand it.

Babs and her peoples see it as a right.

Barbara Blackmon is a very weak loser. Sad!

Sorry, 8:40, but increasing a penalty is not larger government, which is the piss-poor excuse the Orange-Libertarian tried to give for his nay vote. Why could he not just be honest and own up to Barbara delivering him three hundred votes?

Monsters that would hurt helpless animals like these deserve the same treatment. There's nothing bad enough that can be done to these ignorant bastards who get pleasure and excitement from such cruel actions. Makes me sick to my stomach.

What are the odds that Blackmon and Blackmon will represent the perps accused of dog fighting?

If some of you would stand up for your fellow Americans as much as you do for dogs, we would be much better off. Correct me if I'm wrong, but he common white-guy Mississippi view seems to be: screw poor people, no abortions but also no help to pay for child care or any welfare at all, no help for students, PETA is the devil, shoot all the deer/any other animal you want, and vegetarians are wusses. It takes some real mental gymnastics to be a modern day republican. I guess just do what fox new tells you and don't question it?

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.
