12 Year Old Shot in Drive-By

JPD issued the following statement. 


Jackson Police are investigating a shooting that occurred in the 1800 block of Oakland Ave, just before 1:00pm.

Officers responded to a call of a fifteen year old being shot in the head. When they arrived, they found a black female inside a residence suffering from at least one gunshot wound to the lower extremities.

Witnesses told police that the victim was inside the residence lying on a bed when a vehicle pulled up and fired shots inside the residence, striking the victim before driving off. There is no known motive or suspect information at this time.

The victim, who is age 12, was responsive and was transported to a local hospital. Her current condition is stable.

Let's see if this gets the same response from "community leaders" that a black male being shot by a white police officer would generate.

Will we see protests?, rioting?, looting? Will Al Sharpton make an appearance? Will the Southern Poverty Law Center show up?

I bet not.

5:02PM, What time will you be protesting?

Theca Jones said...

Hey 5:02 people have Stop the Violence Rallies, speaking engagements, community outreach all the time. Would be great to see you at some, but you post anonymously on this so I'll just hold my breath.

Awful. Awful. Awful.

Prayers for a full recovery.

@ 5:20......

I don't shoot people, so I'm not the one you need to worry about.

Plus, my solution to the crime problem is not a rally, conference or other waste of time.

What is going on at this house? Second shooting in a matter of weeks.

From WLBT's story on the shooting on Oakland: "On March 5, JPD was called to the same address after two people were shot." Hmmm. Does anybody else see a pattern here?

IF they find the perp(s) and that's a big if I will bet the first taker $100 that he(they) are not first time offenders. They may not have killed anyone but I'll guarantee they have a rap sheet. There are too many convicted criminals who should already be incarcerated roaming the streets of Jackson.

Ha!
Remember what happened at the last Stop the Violence rally? Shots fired and a breathless video correspondent trying desperately to find her "muthafuckin' cah."

The rallies are useless. Know where you are coming from Theca, but they are completely useless other than serving as a way for people to vent their frustration.

The people have to get fed up and come together to demand a complete housecleaning of the Hinds County criminal justice system. The same people are elected yet a different result is expected.

The Mayor takes well over a year to pick a permanent police chief. The judges and DA point fingers at each other while the dockets grow longer and the jail stays stuffed to the max. Cases sit on the docket too long yet nothing is done about it. People don't hold their elected leaders accountable and surprise, nothing changes.

This is what the people wanted, this is what they keep voting for, so keep on having rallies. You are going to have even more rallies until you get mad as hell and clean house.

This is what happens when ol' blood and guts Baby Chock runs off to a Haaarvard "leadership" conference and thus Jackson is lacking his superb leadership.

The folks living at that address should move. Shucks, there are lots of available and free homes in the area.

Note to self:For well being and prosperity, avoid that block of Oakland Ave, or most of Jackson in general.

Stay away from any street named "Oakland" or "MLK." Just sayin'.

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.
