JPD Makes Arrests in Child Kidnapping

UPDATE (8:45 AM 8/16/18): JPD issued the following statement .

Jackson Police had recently issued an Endangered/Missing Child Alert through the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations for a female juvenile taken by her parents. The incident occurred in 6300 block of Interstate 55 North, just before 9:00pm when the child’s grandmother, who has temporary custody, met with the parents for visitation.

Without permission, the parents left with the child and refused to return. They were located a short time later at a residence in south Jackson where the child was found safe and unharmed. Both parents, Wesley Dewayne Lee-36 and Brittani Lauren Lee-26, were taken into custody and charged with custodial kidnapping. The child was returned to the care of her grandmother.

Original Post: The Mississippi Department of Public Safety issued the following alert.

She is described as a biracial female, two feet, five inches tall, weighing 40 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen at approximately 10:45 p.m. today (August 15) in the 600 block of I-55 in north Jackson.

This is a load of bullsh**. Parents should not be charged with kidnapping for taking their OWN child. CPS is not trustworthy enough to assume they were right taking this child from its parents. If Someone from the government tried to take my child, the slaughter that would result would make the world news.

I have to agree with 7:25am. There's not enough information as to why this girl is in danger. Reading the dispatch, it sounds like she's with her parents who are married (or at least were, given all three share the same name). Is there proof that the mother is an abuser or the father is a molester or anything like that?

I'm certain that there has to be something that caused MBI to put out this alert, but it would be nice to know why the state considers this little girl to be in danger when she is with her biological parents.

Oh whatever, 7:25am. We get it. You think you’re a badass.

@7:25 and 8:04

As horrible as it may seem DPS and ultimately the court does not randomly remove children from the custody of their parents. Something rather drastic has to happen for the child to be removed. Are mistakes made? Possibly so but not very often. You would know this if you had ever been able to be in the courtroom during a hearing. Do right by your kids and you have nothing about which to worry.

@8:40--You nailed it!

Well said, 8:55. CPS is not out to "get" parents and I can guarantee neither of the first two posters has any experience with them.

They are required to take custody of a certain number of children to be eligible for government grants. I agree with 7:25. Any government employee that tried to take my child would be shot on site.

Whenever a non-custodial parent/parents take a child, there is usually anger and vengeance involved. Alcohol and/or drugs are almost always involved to a great extent. If alcohol/drugs are missing, then mental health issues are probably present.

I’m gonna side with the commenters of blowing these beaurecrats away. So & so is in the graceyard, daddy’s in the pen type stuff. I have a good friend whose daughter had some markings and no one knew where it came from. Cps came in and investigated and determined it was doings of the grandmother who is now no longer allowed around the child. The mother is devastated as she knows her mother would never hurt the child, holidays are fudged up, etc. grandmother is totally broken and ashamed for something most of us who know the folks are certain she had nothing to do with. It is her only grand child, granddaddy is dead, she basically just got ex communicated from her family based on the thought process of some double digit iq gov. Employee

11:17 - I totally disagree. I'm trying to put myself, mentally, in this scenario of having my child taken by a state agency. Anger, vengeance, drugs and alcohol would not be involved. I'd simply be distraught at the thought of not having the one thing I love the most by my side, under my care, in my house. And once I realized that it was real and was not going to change, I'm not sure what I might do. I do know I could not simply 'accept' it and I might act out of desperation.

So, your final grade as to your psychological profile of the parents is D-.

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.
