A Youtube video shows a savage beating of Booker Tarvin that took place in the Raymond Detention Center nearly two weeks ago.    The video is barely more than a minute and shows a bloody Tarvin lying on the floor of a cell as prisoners say "You take a life, we gonna take a life."  The video is posted below.

Unacceptable. He was being held pretrial. What happened to innocent until proven guilty?

This guy have any connection to Jamie Hoard who was attacked a few days ago? Sounds like Victor and Pete have the jail under control...about the same way Tony Yarber had a handle on running the city of Jackson.

There is no denying that inmates run the Hinds county jail. The sheriff’s staff is there to be visible and appear as if they are at least trying to do a good job. All while Victor sits in a chair doing nothing and thinking he has the tax payers fooled. This dummy believes his own BS. At least the last sheriff made some kind of effort to repair the situation. This clown has no other plan than to earn his four highest paid years to boost his retirement. They should strip it from him and place it in the county general fund for wasting tax dollars.

Absolutely. You go right ahead and go in there and explain this noble principle to the thugs in there.

I'll wait out here with the paramedics.

Anonymous said... do realize that it was other inmates beat him,right? You must be a clueless bleeding heart liberal

Lol, Mason will send Rushings back there to beg and plead for the the inmates to settle down and not riot this close to election time..
But too late Victor, this will only get worse for ya and worse for the inmates, because now, their bringing attention to themselves.

Helps on the way from someone who's actually worked from the jail and up through the ranks and his name is. . .

Victor Mason, Pete Luke, Mary Rushings, and their small group of dumbasses won't even be effected with this except for not being rehired with the new Admin.

Rushing makes 87G to do nothing! Pete loves to hide behind the curtain, and the rest are just praying this doesn't get worse and made public by the media because they'll never be employable anywhere else.

7:45 - What's an out of control public jail got to do with liberalism? You dunce! These facilities are staffed with armed guards and the walls and ceiling are lined with cameras.

Anonymous said... really are clueless... the guards are unarmed and nothing in the facility works properly, including the guards. What does it have to do with liberalism, liberals have no clue of how things work when they are telling you how to fix a problem. This is an obvious example
The problem here are the savages in custody came from the streets of Jackson, guess where they will return? Let me help you, back to the streets...

I'm appalled that any American thinks the presumption of innocence has to do with being " a bleeding heart liberal" and didn't " get" that 5:55 pm was referring to those who beat the prisoner AND those whose responsibility it is to keep the inmates physically safe.

Thug mentality is apparently not limited to gangs these days. After all, some of you support the idea that some people are above the law since it's ok with you for a President or Governor and his appointees and supporters and family to commit crimes and be pardoned and you think they should have to right to decide whether someone is punished for a crime.

So your "gang" leaders can punish those they don't like and set free those they do.

You must support the notion of a criminal regime in this country since you are NOT screaming for that " loophole"( if it exists) to be CLOSED!

I would have expected every elected representative in every State and Congress to have put in a bill to make sure no such loophole CAN exist. And, I would have expected everyone running for office to promise to close such a loophole.

So I it's not against the law to assualt someone in Jail, how about in the Court House?

There was a link on Drudge back in March to an article in the Miami Herald where they were shocked that a federal inmate in Pennsylvania had actually been caught with a cell phone and had posted selfies online. My thought was: "Really? They're surprised? Heck, I was under the impression our Hinds County jail ISSUED cell phones to the inmates upon their arrival!"

I'm in no way suggesting that being a prison guard is even remotely easy. I wouldn't do that job, but I'm thankful there are those who will. That being said, inmates are people over which jailers have 100% control over 100% of inmates' activities 24/7/365. It seems to me there's a long list of reasons why allowing inmates to possess cell phones would be a HUGELY bad practice! While I realize the phones are contraband, and, therefore, not "allowed," they're not terribly easy to conceal (like drugs or money) and they can't be manufactured (like shanks or alcohol). So, is it somehow unconstitutional or "unfair" to have cameras placed throughout the facility (even in cells)?

Again, I'm aware that prison is a bad place, full of people who are not inclined to follow any types of rules or laws. I know who we're dealing with here. Furthermore, I'm not suggesting the solution is simple, but I AM suggesting that should be nearly curable.................

Am I correct to assume this was NOT one of the Jail's cameras that recorded this video and that it was one of the inmates who posted it?

Anonymous said...

6:32 AM - spot on! Only a clueless liberal would think that jail guards are armed. If they were, the inmates would take their weapon/s from them in a heartbeat.

Anonymous said...

@8;10 - we can ALWAYS spot a "bleeding heart liberal" by what they say. Take YOU, for example. "IF ONLY" we conservatives "had a heart" those mean boys in the county jail would respect the rule of law and understand they must presume that guy didn't kill the other guy (even though the probably KNOW without a shadow of doubt that he DID) and give him the benefit of doubt until he has his day in court. And, "IF ONLY" we "had a heart", we'd understand why, because of they are "poor, underprivileged children" they just don't can't help robbing & stealing & killing from the rest of the world, INCLUDING other "poor & underprivileged children" so, when the guy finally gets his day in court, we'd never hold him accountable for "short-comings" but, instead, we'd realize that he is actually just a "victim circumstance" and send him home to mama. If ONLY.

Perfecr reason to elect R W Spooner. He’s got the experience and track record of properly dealing with these thugs. They do this stuff in jail and they do a lot worse on the street. The clown Victor and his clownette Pete obviously don’t know how to handle these folks and keep them under control, which is why they should be tossed out of office.

Victor and Pete are a major contributor to the crime spike you are experiencing in Hinds County and the surrounding areas. It’s called crime control stupid.

Victor doesn’t understand, but Spooner does.

Spooner will fix this mess.

810.. i will say this you are sticking to the script. Can back up anything you say so you switch to bashing something else... once you are proven wrong on one subject ots hard to have credibility on another

Charles Manson had a cell phone at one point. How a man who left civilization in 1969 learned how to operate a smart phone is beyond me, but it happened.

Whether or not this guy did anything wrong is not the problem. The problem is where are the officers and why are there cell phones in jail for these animals ? Jackson is done and no coming out of the hole that they have dug for themselves. Rankin County needs to house these animals and close Hinds County Detention Center. Sheriff of Hinds County should be held criminally responsible for not being able to maintain his jail. Did this guy die? To hell with Jacktown!

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.

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.
