Investigators have charged 20-year-old, Alcantara Garner, with 3 counts of aggravated assault and 1 count of shooting into an occupied vehicle.

Numerous tips were received through the Crime Stoppers hotline.  Using some of that information, investigators were able further the case and have several felony warrants issued for Garner’s arrest.
Earlier this evening, Garner surrendered himself to investigators at Police Headquarters.  Garner was questioned about the incident and later booked on the related charges.

I want to be certain all who read this understand my pride in the actions of the JPD in their investigation and resolution of this incident. In my opinion, JPD always gets the criminal. As a resident of Clinton I am proud of the officers of JPD and their efforts on a daily basis to uphold their commitment to enforcing the law in the cesspool that is Jackson.

Oddly, when I look at his name I see Alcatraz.

Oh my goodness. Somebody named their baby after synthetic micro-suede material typically found on the steering wheel of a Mercedes. Alcantara.

Ha! I knew I recognized his name! That’s the fancy fabric people put in their cars! His mother must be a seamstress.

I'm waiting for the rest of the story. Was he known to the mother and/or the children?

Yes, and thank you for the salutes to JPD. We need every ounce of strength they can give us and we are grateful for them.

I knew a really fine girl on the east coast with the last name Alcantara. Alcantara also a type of fibre that is a leather substitute.

Why did they leave out his address, or city of residence?

Look at JPD. Doing actual police work. Unlike Madison SO.

The problem is usually not JPD, it is the DA and Judges, who you refuse to criticize.

There you go again Melvin thinking that your opinion carries some, er, weight.

This thug was arrested last year on various charges in Jackson, but of course the charges were dismissed.

JPD can catch the criminals but the judges will just release them back onto the streets.

JPD does a tremendous job, especially considering their resources and pay. Unfortunately the gross incompetence (or worse) of the DA and judges will ensure crime continues in Jackson.

Sgt Joe Friday said...

It has got to be frustrating to JPD that they put their lives on the line to catch criminals and then the judges just dismiss charges or slap them on the wrist. And then the citizens they are trying to protect and serve elect the same judges over and over...

When have I refused to criticize the judges?

Thorca: Please remind us when you HAVE criticized Jackson or Hinds judges. I'll wait....

So...I hear on WLBT that this little POS was drawing disability, at age 20, because he got shot in the leg and got a metal plate installed. His court appointed POS lawyer was trying to get sympathy for claiming this punk has PTSD.

My dad fought in 2 wars, WWII and Korea, was wounded, captured, escaped and never could get his VA benefits because his records were burned in St Louis in th ‘70’s. And this guy gets a check! WTF! This crap stain gets what he deserves for shooting two children. Those kids didn’t deserve any of this. Meanwhile we give shit like this disability when we have our older members of society on a fixed income and they have to worry about whether to buy meds or eat. Go figure! Don’t you just love this politically correct society we live in?

Oh, please! JPD only did their job because of all the press. The FBI was on the scene. JPD had to try to do something. Oh, by the way, his mother turned him in, JPD did not find him.

I am still waiting on the rest of the story from the Brookhaven police killings. We are always left hanging.

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.
