Let me be the first to say it, Next! For Christ sake, for those of you Jackson strongholds, arm yourselves!!! And if someone knocks on you’re door at night, ding have it with you and be ready to use it.

It's nice that Kingfish has access to the Belhaven Nextdoor so he can immediately post every bit of crime news that occurs.

Strangely, this site doesn't get any updates when similar crimes occur in the rest of Jackson (of which they do regularly).

Every day...every single day. They are hopeless.

Sir you live in Jackson and you answered the door past dark without a shotgun full of buckshot under your hanky panky? Sir, have you just moved here from up north or the Midwest? Please explain this idiocracy.

Perception of crime.

No excuse for the perps, but who opens their back door, or any door, at 10:30PM for a random knock? I live out in Madison County and I'm still going to put eyes on whoever is at my door before I open it. 9mm is only a reach away...

The report says 'parents of'. That could explain the fact that the man opened the door. Not that ALL parents are this trusting or 'unalert', but some older ones are.

I'm just glad JPS 'processed the scene'. That alone is comforting.

Belhaven is LOST.

If someone rings your doorbell after 8 PM Never, Never, Never open the door.

Get your loaded shotgun & sit in the hallway, when the thugs attempts to kick in your door blast the Hell out of them. Empty the shotgun, reload & continue shooting at the fleeing thugs. If you bag two or more thugs you will receive a AttaBoy from the police & other victims of crime.

2:24PM, I toooootally agree. Remember last week in Madison that gang of hoodlums armed with hacksaws and Kalishnikov's that robbed Mrs. Caruthers? The next day her house was engulfed in flames and a bloody trail led to the woods out back, her body never to be found again.....NOT!

This is not happening all over Jackson, honey.

3.30,

I believe that you missed 2.24's point: First, 2.24 specifically said "the rest of Jackson," not "the Jackson area" or "the Jackson metro" or "Madison" or "Flowood".

Crime does occur frequently in many parts of the CITY of Jackson, but Kingfish doesn't regularly report the bad stuff that happens in the West Capitol corridor or the Northwest side of town or South Jackson. This site tends to focus on crimes that occur in the more affluent parts of town - Belhaven, Fondren, NE Jackson.

That said, it is a free country and Kingfish can report on whatever he damn well wants to, so 2.24, what are you really getting at?

@3:30

I believe you meant to say this is not happening all over the area surrounding Jackson. Because it is certainly happening all over Jackson.

Kingfish said...

Quite simple. I get press releases from JPD and other law enforcement agencies. Those generally get posted. I don't belong to any nextdoor groups. The ones I post are sent to me and I usually verify them to some degree. If similar items about West or South Jackson are sent to me, I will post them.

PittPanther said...

The Nextdoor for Woodlea and Lakeover are very quiet. Perhaps you guys should reevaluate which neighborhoods are "upscale" in Jackson.

Let me guess, never heard of them, right?

Processed the crime scene "for awhile". huh?????

An armed home invasion in The Belhaven by some of Jacktown's finest young lads. Oh no! Tell me it's not so!

How many homes in The Belhaven will be going on the market this week? Asking for a friend.

Jackson, the southern version of Detroit.

Several years ago off Council Circle, a friend of mine heard a baby crying outside their bedroom window. They didn’t take the bait but their neighbor did. It was a recording. The neighbor got robbed.

I think if you commit a violent crime against a stranger that pays a high property tax you should automatically serve the max sentence possible.

If teenagers did this their names should be released. Guarantee they are JPS grads whose teachers wished they were expelled but the overcrowded Central Office would barely even suspend.

I had a student rob a dog walker at gun point in Fondren. He was back in my class a month later. You catch that, Melvin (the one good city leader)?

There must have been a huge robbery in Madison. Someone stole all of the trees! It looks like a cow pasture

It's obvious that it's past time to "lock and load" if you live in Jackson, also known as the city of reparation justice. Reparation justice is just a term created by have not thugs as self-justification for their criminal acts of taking from those that have. They're coming, so lock and load.

The Darwin Award definitely goes to the old guy...answering the door at that hour of the night? Pure-D idiocy. Maybe it’s time for assisted living, before the next thug provides “assisted dying.”

Not trying to “blame the victim,” but God did give (most of) us a precious commodity: common sense.

Should have used the Castle Doctrine! Protect yourself and your property with the Castle Doctrine, and avoid becoming a victim.

The post earlier asked if the guy was from the northeast or Midwest and didn't know about crime. I can tell you as a 43 year old white male that has lived in 3 cities all my life before moving here for residency at UMC and staying in Jackson bc my wife is from here and also practices at UMC we live in Northeast Jackson but I was raised in Pennsylvania where you can go 5 or 6 hours before seeing a black person . Then moved to Portland OR and you can walk the city for 2 days and not spot 1 single black person finally Boston where there were very very few black at all. So it's certainly a different world in Mississippi and crime is reflective of income vs demographic. Look sad to say but u til someone kills these invaders it will continue.

Is this one of those resurgent Jackson neighborhoods where under-35 families are relocating from out of state so their kids can bike through the neighborhood?

You know, the ones with no home invasions?

Asking for a friend.

These same 3 masked hoodlums rooted a dollar General store last night. Mark my words... they will end up on the wrong side of a gun sooner or later. Probably can't even hold the gun properly to shoot it. @ 8:05, yes I lived in Pennsylvania for 3 years... people call it Alabama without blacks. Very conservative and much like the southeast minus demographics. I went to college there and growing up in Greenville M ississippi it was a culture shock for me also. Alot of low income whites up there so it was a different world from my M ississippi delta childhood. I didn't miss the humidity though. Hated the snow. So even trade.

Assuming some of you know the capitols of each state, go to the crime sections of their local newspapers.

The criminals here are extraordinarily unsophisticated and easily caught.

And, sadly, too often the victims are as well.

And, for God's sake, instead of relying on a weapon that will do you no good if taken by surprise, secure your home and get a security camera or install one for your parents for Christmas. It's cheaper than a weapon as well! Bolt your doors into the slabs or metal plates.

At least, buy yourself time to get your gun.

And, it's our white collar criminals that should worry you the most as the odds of them stealing from you is far greater.

You really are an idiot to think the greatest crime threat to Jacksonians, or anyone else in Mississippi, is white collar crime.

I find these comments by people on here are often made with little knowledge or insight... for instance people compare Jackson to a smaller Chicago. Problem there is Chicago is only 25% black and has corrupt white politicians where Jackson is polar opposite of that. Just an example of people and there ignorance on subjects they spew about on a blog with little knowledge. So really take these comments as mere opinion or with little value. Kingfish is the best in local media and I prefer his site over others.

I spit a luggie on the ground in Madison yesterday and a camera caught me and 5 police officers came out of nowhere and wrote me a ticket for spitting a brick.

So what you are saying is that "polar opposite" Jackson is only 25% white and has corrupt black politicians? Well, Jackson is less than 25% white (17% and falling) and as for the corrupt black politicians, that is already well known.

Louis LeFleur said...

The victims in this crime are friends of mine and you can rest assured that the husband who opened the door is no fool. There are, or at least have been in the past, enough people in and out of that house at night that he'd have no reason to suspect trouble. Let's show a little respect and sympathy/empathy here.

Not good reasoning. He, along with you, seems to be lacking good judgment.

There is nothing quite as scary or intimidating to a criminal than the sound of the chamber of a legal tactical pump shotgun inserting a shell before you answer the door. Problem solved and they go away
, or..... Buy a new door

@8:05 AM...43 year old Resident at UMMC....NOW YOU know why it was so easy to get a residency slot here...hopefully you live near the Medical Center so if you get shot, maybe you'll survive long enough to get there...but even then there is a possibly that you might still get shot again inside the emergency room...I was fortunate enough to survive a serious MVA and was life flighted there...while there being treated, a fight broke out among a patient, family and staff and it took 7 security and PD officers to break it up.

Lots of tough talk by people who probably have never been confronted by a criminal.

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.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug.
