Parole Revoked for Accused Cop Killer

 Marquis Flowers is back in prison.  The Parole Board revoked his parole after he was arrested and charged with capital murder in the deaths of two Brookhaven police officers. 



Flowers had no less than ten convictions of auto burglary in Lincoln and Pike Counties.  He was also convicted of conspiracy in Lincoln County.  He was sentenced to five years in prison for three of the counts but two years were suspended.  He was sentenced to serve seven years in prison for eight more counts (Pike County) but those sentences were suspended.  The sentencing took place in 2012.

He was paroled in July 2016 with a GPS monitor.  

Natchez police arrested him last year for stealing a vehicle and fleeing police.  He was returned to prison.  However, he was paroled to a detainer with the Natchez police but ordered to wear a monitor for eight months.  An Adams County grand jury indicted Flowers for stealing a vehicle in February and four counts of auto burglary.    Circuit Judge Forrest Johnson set bond at $50,000.  The court issued a bench warrant on August 6, 2018 when he failed to appear in court.  He was thus on the lam when he encountered the two police officers. 

He is currently a patient at UMMC under police supervision.

Revoked? You mean they'll put him back in jail now? No shit?

Damn. What an amazing proactive move by Pickett and his overpaid board members that let this POST out in the first place. Wonder how long they had to deliberate over this tough decision.

Strap a monitor on each leg and let him go.

My grandfather would have called that locking the barn door after the cows are already out.

What a wise decision by the parole board. Now explain to the loved ones why this person was out in the first place.

it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if someone slipped in his room and unloaded a gun in this animals brain...

He has no history of violent crime, then all of a sudden he's shooting cops? What's going on? What changed in his mind?

What's up KF? Trying to protect Pickett and team? Don't want to post a comment that mentions the individuals that made the decision to turn this POS loose on society?

This is what happens when UNQUALIFIED persons are appointed by the Governor and Corrupt Commisioners! In an effort to save a $$ these people cost these officers their lives and devastation to their families. Who thought this murderer could be a model citizen after he couldn’t comply with previous release programs? The very system these men gave their lives for let them down. The Governor , the Commissioner and the Parole Board bear the burden of this system failure. My prayers are with the officers families.

I am not a lawyer....but it would seem that "parole to detainer" means he was sent to be sentenced on new his new crime. With a three year sentence just how long realistically was this guy going to be in jail to begin with? I hope Flowers gets the death penalty.

2:40, he is only advancing in his chosen trade. Do you expect him to be satisfied with minor crimes when the money is in bigger crimes? Everyone wants to advance in their field. No one ever tried to tell him that crime was not a field for advancement. Maybe if they would have done something about his crimes he would not have ever got to the stage in his career that included shooting people.

Wait...where is Marshall Fishers outcry? He chimed in on the Forest Hill Band disgrace surely he must be outraged as the leader of DPS at these travesties? Oh yeah he helped to leave all of Epps cronies in place.

4:27 p.m. Please provide evidence that parole board members are unqualified. I'll give you a hint; it doesn't exist. In this case, it's not on the board or the commissioner. If you want to blame somebody, start with the person who committed the crime. I guess you could blame the sentencing judge for suspending parts of his sentences, but my goodness that would be a stretch. How's the judge at sentencing or the parole board supposed to know that this guy would escalate from freaking (nonviolent) auto burglary to capital murder?

I'm not against placing blame on public officials when it's due. Remember the other guy who escalated from being an armed robber to a killer? The commissioner or MDOC or whoever in that agency shouldn't have let him out. Those deaths are on them.

I'll say something no one else seems willing to say. The Parole Board does a good job. They determine who should be released and who shouldn't based on the best information they can get. Sometimes, people make bad decisions, and in this case, they are sometimes tragic. But there will be no headlines for the hundreds of poeple released by the parole board every year that make good decisions and improve their lives. Just like you only hear about when a cop shoots someone and you hear far less about the everyday actions they perform to keep us safe. The Parole board does a good job keeping us safe, and I hope this doesn't scare them into making any bad or rash decisions.

Keep drinking the kool-aid the parole Board is breaking the law
Itself.

Shillingford v. Reed
Miss Supreme Court
312 so 2d 717 1975

The State cannot Parole a person to a detainer however it did.

@2:18 how much worse can their decisions get? I want them to explain to the public and the two officers family how they thought paroling someone to a detainee for a crime committed while the CRIMINAL was out on another type of early release program. It makes no sense! None! And I’ll chime in that it’s illegal to Parole a individual to a detainee. I hope the Parole Board is held accountable for the loss of these two officers,

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.

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.
