Shake-up at JPD

There has been a major shake-up at JPD.  Some careers went up, some went down.  The changes are posted below.

Seems Patrol Operations suffered the most changes or perhaps, gained the most from these changes.

Commander James McGowan was one of the best officers it has ever been my pleasure to work with. Hands down! He is not being utilized well and I will not be surprised to see him made a Chief elsewhere. His future was damaged in JPD because he was white, IMHO.

None of the changes made by this Administration to JPD have resulted in a decrease in homicides. Wonder what the overall crime stats are?

Is it common to be promoted to dep chief from sergeant?

Isn’t this like rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic?

So this is the 49th special order this calendar year. Wow. Radical city. Keep moving and shuffling so no one is to blame and to avoid responsibility. Did the committee agree to this?

These are all political or buddies appointments. Getting promoted at JPD based on ability is rare. The Mayor appointed the interim Chief on the basis of a friendship with his bodyguard. The new assistant chief was a political contributor. JOD is being further plunged into the toilet under Antar.

So in 90 days when another Chief is named it’ll be another rearranging of administration for JPD. How can the PD focus on crime fighting and reduction if the administration is not consistent for longer than 3 months? I think the mayor wants instability within the department.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. If I could only be a fly on the wall for the reasons why these changes were made.

City leaders just keep banging nails into the coffin. Most of the promoted personnel have a history of making bad situations worse. Not that the demoted ones were any better. Why I even care to comment anymore is beyond me.

Look, this stupid a$$ mayor got rid off possibly the best officer in the entire metro Jackson area bc of his skin color. James McGowan was hands down the absolute best and fair to all regardless of there skin color. I won't vote for baby chokwe ever again. He's nothing but a empty suit. Racist is stating it mildly.

No, not really. Save for a single iceberg and perhaps a little human error, the Titanic was a pretty huge and luxurious human achievement on a variety of fronts. I see nothing that indicates the Jackson Police Department is even, well, a functional police department. If I may suggest, this seems more like pushing the turds from the edges of the punch bowl into the center. Anyone thirsty?

Just more evidence that the entire administration (current and former) is nothing more than an employment office.

Next up: Deputy Chief 'Silver Bullet' Robert Graham up from imaginary Lieutenant.

As long as the voters in Jackson continue to vote for candidates based on race, (and I don’t see that change ever happening), the city will continue to decline. Most of the white and a lot of the black, working tax payers have moved out and taken their tax base with them. Very few people want to work, shop, or do any business in Jackson. The crime rate is out the roof and nobody wants to visit a place where murder is a common occurrence. Folks, you did it to yourselves and if it ever gets fixed, (which is doubtful), you are going to have to fix it yourselves.

If officer McGowan is as good as all of you say just think of how well he would do in a civilized setting. I don't see why any competent officer (black or white) would waste their time and risk their life for what is absolutely a lost cause.

Ditto the comments on McGowan.
It's officers like McGowan that gave this City a chance to recover.
Already miss him.
The racist asshat LaDumba ran off one of the best.

The problem in Jackson is the citizens are either rich or poor. No middle class bc you have to pay tuition to private schools. It's true the NE Jackson taxpayers have a beach house or Oxford condo while the rest of the city can't pay for a tank of gas.

Wonder who's going to surface in Pelahatchie as their new Chief?

Anonymous said...

@6:41 Amen!! I reiterate "you'll have to fix it yourselves"

Anonymous said... recap: There's a direct correlation between Jackson's problems and Oxford condos.

I wonder how many people have signed up for this BS conflict resolution? I mean really...LOL

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.
