Meet the King of Capitol Street

Some people really do own everything.

Check out the corner of Capitol and President Streets yesterday afternoon.  

Don't worry, it was reported.

That's downtown patrol, the officer is doing foot patrol in the location. Can you post stories about our $14.92 and $17.46 pay.How about not having promotions since 2013. That's would really help too please and thank you. Oh and dont forget the steep decline in personnel.

Would this person follow the rules/law if he/she was paid more?

Visibility is a large part of crime prevention. I don't give a hoot's ass where they park. Just be visible.

I don't see anything to complain about.

The a$$hole cops are above the law. Don’t you know that?

F them.

I don’t mind a cop car parked downtown especially with the recent murder over in that area last month.

Sorry JJ, I have to side with the cop sympathizers. I drove down Lakeland Dr today from Jackson into Flowood around noon. I saw no less than three FPD patrol Tahoe's that were illegally parked in some interesting hiding spots that any of us would be ticketed and towed if we parked there.

I guess the only difference would be that the FPD vehicles were occupied.

Honestly, I wouldn’t expect, or even want them to park in a regular parking space.

8:58 If the vehicles are occupied, they ain’t parking. They are sitting in high viz areas to deter....protecting idiots like you.

Police presence is a good thing! What the heck is wrong with this?!

I hope your photo is to show JPD is in control.
I have noticed an increased police presence as I shop and do personal business all over Jackson.
I like that the cars try to be visible and in ways they can exit quickly if needed.
I like that I see the officers attached to those cars, letting business employees and owners get to know the officer on their beat. I've spoken to a few myself and thanked them.
I've also noticed in the last few years an improvement in their appearance and professionalism . What I mean by " appearance" is a Drill Sgt. would be pleased . There level of communication with others has improved. I'm not seeing the bossy ," I'm in charge" attitude I once saw, but rather an air of confidence and " I can handle this". And, there is no resentment or irritation anymore should I dare ask a question.
By the way, look at the latest FBI crime per capita stats. You won't find Jackson until you get to the national average numbers. You will find stats that surprise you including that Chicago is lower than 9 other cities some of which I suspect those who are afraid of Jackson visit fearlessly.
Kudos to JPD!

This argument is always ridiculous. I was a local Police Officer for 5 years, when responding to emergency calls we went to the location, parked in the most convenient location and responded as quickly as possible, often to dangerous situations. Would you really prefer they drove in circles downtown to find a spot instead of responding to your theft in progress, domestic violence, armed robbery call, etc? It’s a different story obviously if he’s getting lunch, but you don’t KNOW what is going on, you’re just assuming.

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.

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.
