Dispatch from Pelahatchie (Fight Club Edition)

Pelahatchie reached a new low  at a special meeting of the Board of Aldermen Tuesday night as the Mayor and an Alderman's daughter argued over who threatened to "F***" the other up.  Both women filed police reports with the Rankin County Sheriff's Office.  JJ obtained copies of the reports.  They are posted below.  The reports state what is alleged to have happened after the meeting concluded.


Taisha Travis is the daughter of Alderman Michael Adams.  She stated in her report:

On 07/10/2018@ approximately 2030 hrs, Mrs. Taisha M. Travis came in the front office and stated she needed to make a report. Travis stated she was in a Pelahatchie town board meeting with her father, who is an alderman (Michael Adams), when the Mayor, Ryshonda Beechem, threatened her. Travis stated the board voted to make Beechem pay for a bill that was paid without board approval. Travis stated Beechem got aggravated and made the statement "if these people keep on I am gonna fuck them up." Beechem then turned to Travis and stated" and I will fuck you up." Travis stated she looked at the Mayor and stated "Naw, you gonna get fucked up."

Travis stated Beechem then started yelling saying "she said she gone fuck me up!" Travis stated Shamecka Williams Johnson, Allison Weems and Jearlene Holly stated "you gone get fucked up!" Travis stated she is in fear for her and her family due to the threats and request the FBI be notified.

I had Travis and her father fill out statements describing the incident in question and they are both attached to this case number. Travis also provided a handwritten statement signed by Frank Boyd describing the same incident. I advised Mrs. Travis that I would complete an information report on the incident and our office would follow up with her on the following business day. EOR****


Meanwhile, Mayor Ryshonda Beechem filed her own report that night and made the following allegations:

I met Mrs Beechem at the Pelahatchie city hall. She said Taisha Travis is the daughter of one of the alderman for the town and was at the town meeting tonight. Mrs Beechem said after the meeting Taisha approached her while she was still sitting and said "I'm gonna fuck you up." Mrs Beechem said she doesn't know what provoked it and wanted to report this incident. Mrs Beechem also said that Taisha has been escorted out of a couple of other town meetings for her behavior. I advised Mrs Beechem that she could file charges at Justice court and that our legal advisor would look into the matter and get in touch with her next date.
Ms. Travis emailed JJ and said she had not been escorted out of any meetings.

The FBI? Seriously? These Pelahatchie folks are out of their minds. I can only imagine the snicker coming out of the deputy as he typed that report up. Probably why he threw the FBI comment at the end. Saving the best for last.

Oh Lord, please help them.

This a good example of something that is SPINNING OUT OF CONTROL.

...like sand in the hour glass, these are the Days of Our Lives...As the World Turns...where The Bold and The "Beautiful"...live in Rankin County.

BTW, I live in Rankin County (but NOT Pelahatchie).

KF, you haven't reported on the chief of police resigning. More popcorn please, as the rats are jumping ship.

These people seriously need to grow up. How low can they go?

And for those that don’t know, or can’t tell, these are all people of the same race. It’s not racial or black and white as many outside the fire have tried to insinuate.

This town was much better off a few years ago before the revenge of Ryshonda.

The incident related in these reports does not appear to be a race issue on its face. But it very much has racial overtones. The alderman in question and whose daughter is involved is mixed race. The Mayor deems him to be not black enough and has stirred the pot of racial tension in the black community and has attempted to turn black people against Mr. Adams using the argument that he is a pawn of the whites. Oh, yes, this is very much racial. It's a very nuanced acrimony with deep roots in black culture. And it is totally and completely mystifying to white folks who have little to no ability to comprehend it. The Mayor has chosen to extract revenge on the whites who she claims wronged her Mama (the incompetent Police Court Clerk who failed to account for literally tens of thousands of dollars in traffic fines and was properly, albeit quietly, discharged from duty) and the "may as well be white" blacks who she claims Uncle Tom'd her Mama. That's her total platform. May as well call her "Mayor I'm gonna git you sucka."

I'm not questioning your assertions, 3:35; but, for God's sakes, make up your mind. First you say "does not appear to be a race issue" and then you say, "Oh, yes, this is very much racial". Then you get deep into "white folks who wronged her mama" and claims of 'Uncle Tom'.

White people are not as stupid as you think. Most of us are fully aware of the 'not black enough' thought process and the primary driving force behind the thoughts of EVERY black person in authority....which is...."How black is she" and "Who her people" and "where she churched at" and "Who them babies daddy?"

Whatever the ills and evils are in a white administration or position of power, you will never find any of THAT bull-shit.

"I'm gonna get you sucka".................

LMAO !!!!!!!!!


I highly recommend security at all future meetings. This is getting good.

This is good, but it’s not better than the Tuesday Morning hugs at “The” River Hills Club.

There have been Uncle Tom's since slavery began. Unfortunately the only some brothers can get ahead is by taking the role.

I am reminded of the famous Uncle Earl Quote.........there is only 4 people that give a shit about the Gret Stet of Loseeanna......Sears and Roebuck, Jesus H. Christ, and Earl K.Long. I think it is time that JHC paid visit to the county of Rankin!!

This ain't about race. This is just ignorant stupidity, which is obviously color blind. Plenty to go around.

Lakeland Drive paving project getting state-wide attention. Pelahatchie consistently getting more JJ blog replies than the City of Jackson. And Hinds County officials getting ZERO media attention.

That tells you all you need to know. The circus has relocated eastward.

Ryshonda is doing all she can do to sink The Town of Pelehatchie for the revenge of her mother's abrupt termination. Gee thanks Mom! "Are we ready to vote?" Sickening...

I posted about the police chief resigning last week. The media just now picked it up.

Ms. Travis emailed me and said she had not been escorted out of any meetings.

This nonsense with family members running around publishing letters and confronting the mayor looks like the aldermen are just desperate for anything that might stick and make the mayor look bad. The mayor doesn't seem to have anyone giving her sound legal or political advice. All of them need to resign.

Anonymous said...

We will see if this is a race issue when she, if allowed, will appoint a police chief. If he is black then we know her intentions. If white she will smooth the water a TINY bit, but yes. This has gotten pretty bad. I’m like the poster above and you need security, RCSD, at the meetings going forward. Making threats like these are serious matters. People are shooting each other in other places over much less

Pelahatchie by definition is all about race.

White people left Jackson and Brandon to be way away from any blacks.

With the unthought of election of a black mayor the white mans worst fear is coming to fruition....the white man has to answer to a black woman!

It is literally peeling and burning the skin off their little white heads.

Every time the mayor speaks the white Pelahatchian squirms.

I worked there for a decade.....it’s only about race....I know.

Please more detail on Mayor's Mom's missing funds ,etc.

@ 5:02 The mayor can make a suggestion on the police chief, but it is up to the aldermen to vote. Just like the president makes nominations but Congress has to approve.

Anonymous said...

Mayor Ryshonda Beechem isn’t worried about being prosecuted bc she’s was on one of the first invitations for District Attorney’s Michael Guest campaign fundraiser invites. Then brags to everyone about having friends in high places and that not worried about anything.

Kingfish said...

Race? The Board votes against her unanimously quite a bit - and two members are black. The Jackson NAACP criticized her because she dared to support Guest for Congress.

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.
