Is this death already in the headcount or shall I add it to my spreadsheet?

And, how many times has he been caught and released?

I'm sure it's all just a big misunderstanding and one of the compassionate judges in Jackson will extend forgiveness to this fine young man. Oh, the possession charge was a mistake as well.

Let's make sure he doesn't miss choir practice Wednesday night.

Seriously, I thought they were renaming Flag Chapel Road to Obama Drive. This is not a racial comment, KF, so you can approve it with no worry.

Here's the ordinance from back in 2016. Did this get shot down? Did this city council really refuse to name a street after Obama?

So his name is Barry Wallace-24. It breaks my heart, because I'm an old friend of the Wallace-24 family.

Is '24' some sort of gang affiliation?

Mr. Mayor, we are in desperate need of something to take our minds off this unpleasantness. How about a music festival or a citywide cookout? Maybe gladiators in Memorial Stadium. Better yet, gladiators in front of City Hall or did they do that last week? We need a diversion!

"At least once shot was fired"
"Jackson Police are investigation a fatal shooting"

I realize The Collective may be trying to save money on a proofreader but damn, that's like it was typed on an Iphone playing predictive text roulette.

On a serious note, Lil Chuckie needs to keep his peeps in line. This is tuning out to be a pretty bloody summer. #perceptionofcrime

You might not DESERVE to die for picking up someone named Lil'G at an abandoned house on Bailey Avenue. But, the thought probably should occur to you that there is indeed a risk of that.

Guys don't worry, the city council members are clearly on top of this.

I had an Aunt and Uncle that lived off of Broadmoor Dr. and that neighborhood was going down in the 90s. They were robbed when they got home on evening. What is sad they were in their late 70s or 80s.

I lived in that neighborhood just a couple of streets over from Broadmoor. Back in the 60's and 70's we never locked our doors at night. We played outside all day into the evening, never had any theft or robbery,progress has really changed tings.

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.
