A.G. Busts Copper Thieves

Attorney Generalissimo Jim Hood issued the following statement.

Three people were arrested in Jackson Thursday for stealing copper cables from AT&T poles in the area valued at a loss of more than $225,000 to the company, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.

Jackson residents Jon-Phillips Cote, 25, and Cynthia Ford, 45, and Madison resident Chance Joiner, 33, were arrested at Metal Processors by investigators with the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division and Cyber Crime Unit. They were each charged with one felony count of grand larceny and booked in the Hinds County jail.



If convicted, they each face 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

This case was investigated by Lee McDivitt and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Patrick Beasley, both with the AG’s Consumer Protection Division.

You can always count on Hood to go after the really heavy hitters. Epps was damn lucky that Hood was otherwise busy all those years going after the real criminals in Mississippi.

Only job they can find in Mississippi.

For the genius at 8:23 - A quarter of a million in copper theft and damage is significant. And you might want to assume this is not all they stole or planned to steal.

Plenty of jobs in Mississippi, you just can't piss hot or be a thug.

If they had put the pedal to the metal they could have escaped, but they may have been wired.

Guessing she's not the one who climbed the poles? ...at least not "those" poles.

Fine looking folks. I bet no one ever explained to them that you don't have to steal very much copper to make felony level theft. Hopefully they will have time to consider how dumb they are while in prison.

Plenty more jobs in Colorado and you don't have to piss for anyone. Maybe we should think about changing things here a little more.

As significant as all the really big corrupt Mississippi fish that the Federales have landed while Hood stands there with his finger in his ear? Hardly.

Face it. When it comes to the truly big stuff Hood has been AWOL.

Jobs are not the same things as opportunities. That's why we have a brain drain. What's sad is not that folks like 10:40 don't understand that, but that they want the status quo. They don't care how big a shit heap Mississippi is as long as they and theirs remain in charge. The brain drain actually benefits our aristocracy.

“As a son who has cared for his own parents, it is beyond angering that white people who probably vote Republican would selfishly steal the copper wire that old people in this state use to speak to their children."

9:23...If you want to see 40,000 restaurant and food service jobs open up next week in Mississippi (great tips) start piss-testing applicants and randoms. Call your local Job Service office and ask them for figures on employment in food service here or in Colorado or California or any other state. Next?

I take cans, scrap metal and assorted junk to The Can Man frequently. At both of their locations there are signs prominently posted that serve as a warning that if you are selling copper or other valuable metals, you must have a license such as an HVAC Tech (or similar) and that you will be mailed a check after you satisfy certain requirements of Mississippi law in regard to selling such metals.

How stupid of these people to think they could get away with this. But no more stupid that the metro-county-ads we see on the net for selling six flat screens still in the box or eight brand new power drills and three generators never used.

Flat screens, drills, and generators frequently fall off the back of trucks, and sometimes even Rolex watches.

In conclusion, the coppers busted some thieves for stealing, wait for it...copper.

Got it wired.

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.

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.
