"Police speak" really cracks me up.

Wondering how someone in the parking lot would know someone had been injured inside the apartment.

Murder? There's nothing in the posted report to indicate a double murder.

This is why Ridgeland City tried to enforce restrictions on apartments a while back and got beat by every one.
Now I am afraid the crime is spilling over into Ridgeland.

Madison County is so dangerous! Sad!

When most people say Madison county, we don’t mean Ridgeland. Ridgeland is just Jackson junior. Ridgeland is a dump of a city, and has been for the last fifty years.

I am STILL thankful that I wake up each and every day living in the 39110 zip code.

You people who act like Ridgeland isn't part of Madison County are about as smart as those who call Brandon "the Reservoir." Oh and newsflash, dwellers of identical houses in Madison The City: Canton isn't that far away to your North.

Spin it any way you want, you are sandwiched in between shit. Mayor Mary can't keep you and precious little Billy safe forever. Stop looking at crime near you and saying oh well wasn't in MY city doesn't matter. Everyone in the metro is in this together, like it or not.

Attn 5:20 You are exactly right, Mayor Mary can't keep the people who live in Madison safe forever, but she has done a pretty good job so far. Go ahead and buy you some property in Hinds County and see how that works out. (For some reason I think that is a major problem you are already dealing with.)

Yes 2:32 --- your zip code will protect you from the thugs. Continue to enjoy whatever drugs you take that give you your false sense of security.

Actually it is not my zip code that protects me @7:15 and I do not take drugs either. There is nothing false about feeling safe in a community that functions as it was designed too. Your ignorant attempt to insult me speaks volumes to your lack of character.

Each new commercial rooftop in Madison brings at least 30 cars a day (sometimes 200) bearing license plates from Hinds, Yazoo, Holmes, Leake, Scott, Rankin and Warren. I'm surprised Mary is not operating shuttle buses from each of these counties straight into Madison for shopping and dining...sorta like the nursing homes run buses to Wal Mart on check day.

I'm afraid the party is about over, my friends.

The only danger here to most of us would have been a stray bullet. This is another example of ignorance in conflict resolution, not danger of homicide to me by a stranger.

To those who have trouble counting with one hand behind your backs......YES, it does matter that Madison County and Rankin County have different (higher) standards of law enforcement than Hinds County. Effective law enforcement and strong criminal court judges send a message LOUD & CLEAR that (a) anyone caught committing a crime WILL be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and (b) you WILL be caught. It might not be a deterrent 100% percent of the time, but it DOES make the Hinds County bottom feeders think carefully before crossing the county line...and MOST of them opt for easier, safer targets. Poor Ridgeland suffers unfairly because the idiots either don't know where the county line IS or they (wrongly) think they are close enough to safety to get away with it.

The party will be over in Madison, soon enough. My husband and I have discussed the reality of needing to leave before it hits the tipping point. I’m counting on another 5 years. 10, at best.

Two childhood friends are dead folks. This was not a burglary, robbery or home invasion. It was two friends who got in an argument which unfortunately left both of them dead. This has little to do with whether or not the City of Ridgeland is a dangerous place to live nor is it an indication of whether or not the city is on a downward spiral. It was the first murder of the year committed by two people who knew each other. Nothing to be afraid of people. Instead of judging each other and where we live, let us instead pray for the families who lost their sons.

Two childhood friends are dead folks. This was not a random act of burglary, home invasion or robbery. With this being the case, I don’t think it is even relevant to judge one another as to where a person lives. This is the first murder suicide in the City of Ridgeland for the year 2018. These two men were childhood friends who knew each other and something went terribly wrong. Instead of one upping each other as to where city lines are, we should instead be praying for the families of those two dead boys.

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.

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.
