Out!

JPD Chief Anthony Moore is out.  The new Chief is James Davis.  Chief Davis served as Deputy Chief under Chief Moore and Chief of Patrol Operations under Chief Lee Vance. 
Chief Moore had never been a supervisor and at times it was quite clear he was in over his head.  Crime stats on the city website had not been updated since November.  The weekly Comstat meetings were reduced as he held them bi-weekly.  Even with a reduced schedule, it was not uncommon for Chief Moore to cancel Comstat meetings.  The number of homicides is no longer included in homicide press releases.   

This will be the third police chief for Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba in less than a year.  One hopes that JPD will get a relief from the merry-go-round at the top position and achieve some stability.

I'm not surprised. It's been six months with no sign of a confirmation hearing.

It does not matter who the chief is or going to be, they are all equally inept.

This was our last hope of any promotion with the department back to the buddy buddy system we go

Wow, you are at JPD and knew this? You lucky insider! What else are you hiding?

Dee Ray said...

10:48 is correct. This is probably the sixteenth chief in the past 22 years and the crime rate has done nothing but rise. My all time favorite was the be-freckled traffic cop from Jackson State who appeared before a camera maybe twice in her entire term as lady-chieftain.

I wonder if all their 8x10s are hanging in a hall somewhere. A very long hall.

Is Joe Clark from Lean on Me available? He could make everyone in the city sing the city song on demand. hmmmm......

Cynical Sam said...

The chief of police is an easy scapegoat for society's problems, when the crime problem is rooted in many failures, mostly related to the family unit, or lack of same.

Firing the chief makes it look like Baby Chock is doing something about crime.

Hiz honor won't be satisfied until they have a people's committee serving as chief.

Jackson needs to elect a Mayor who knows how to prioritize, delegate then step back & let his employees do their jobs. Going on tv making excuses, the “ummmm’s” & “uhhhhhh’s” only make him (and the city of Jackson) look like imbeciles.

I remember when they had two choices for an excellent Chief. Both African American men Charles Austin the former chief in Columbia, SC and the Rubin Greenburg former Chief or Charleston, SC. Austin bailed early on and the word on the street here was, he would not risk his name after the fist meeting. Ruben I am not sure rumor was it just did not feel right. Both would have made great Chief's if they had been allowed to do the job. Maybe that was the problem. Both these men had great relationships with the entire communities they served.

No one that is highly qualified would want this position. Simply bc mayor baby chokwe isn't capable of allowing people to do there job... he's a micro manager and loves the camera. Not to mention he's being pushed like a little bitc# that he is by those within JPS to pass a bond of 65 million.

When you elect a candidate with absolutely no real experience you get a Mayor with absolutely no real experience. Purging JPD may make his sycophants happy but that is all it will accomplish.

Paul Mitchell said...

Has it really been almost twenty years since the last of the Stennis boys ran Jackson?

You know who else is in way over his head? Our loser mayor, who has accomplished exactly nothing. At least his father had the balls to pass the 1% tax.

Based on the poorly written responses here, none of you from JPD who are posting should have had a chance at running anything...except for your mouth.

Well, it WAS the first step in abolishing the Police Force, right?

Put Victor in charge of the city and the county!

Victor we see you @4:25 and 8:41. You’re not fooling anyone...

How about finding someone from somewhere else to do this instead of promoting people from within who aren't quite qualified?

JPD teaches JPD officers how to be JPD officers. This is a problem, and it always has been.

Funny, your friends at the Clarion Ledger have front page news that the announcement would be Thursday. Chief Davis is mentioned as a possibility.

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.
