Coco With the PoPo

Coming soon:




Kingfish note:  Dear Mayor, shouldn't you and your flunkies have these coco sessions during at night or on a Saturday?  You know, when the people who pay your damn salaries don't work!

After we have CoCo with the PoPo at the Food Depot on Northside Dr. can we stay and watch the WWE fight event in the produce section?
Just asking for a friend.

This better not be some weak-ass Swiss Miss mixed with hot tap water.

That is all the guy does is talk. He's got people snowed all over the country that he's actually doing something. Lumumba is totally full of shit.

I just had a psychic moment! on February 2, 2019, Kingfish will post


"OH NO, CO CO with the PO PO only SO SO"

I would have preferred coming up with the Powerball numbers!

Jackson has the leadership they voted for. Now let us enjoy the minstrel show.

This idiot of a Mayor surely knows the origin of the word "PoPo" derived from gang members referring to the police. Then again I'm not surprised....it is Jackustan.

Read this garbage:

Mayor Lumumba's holistic approach to crime prevention is rooted in the inherent dignity of all citizens — those who have never been impacted by crime, returning citizens, and those who have been victimized by crime. Jackson is confronting the contradictions within the justice system by advancing racial and economic justice as the cornerstone of the city's public safety agenda.

Toucan Sam said...

COCO wit de POPO to talk bout why the City done gone LOCO. Nah, I'm not seeing any racial overtones in that announcement or depiction of the COCO making the last 11 little white marshmallows take flight as they get displaced from the COCO cup.

Cocoa is spelled just like that - not 'coco' - unless someone was trying to be intentionally ignorant

Given that the temperatures will be in the 20's, they'd better have plenty of bottled water, as the water lines will be spewing ice fountains all over the city again.

Seems sort of odd to have them scheduled during typical work hours. That leaves out a lot of people who might otherwise be interested.

What y'all bitchin' 'bout? This be FREE hot chocolate.

Shouldn't they including a HoHo?

I like my Coco like I like my mayors. Light brown, mellow, unsatisfying, tepid, essentially worthless.

The schedule is for the convenience of the TV newsers as these events are nothing more than photo-ops. The attendees will all be the same reliably regular faces you see at every one of these preening Antar sessions. JPD is a mess with veteran officers leaving left and right.

I'm sure it is a deliberate decision. That way it minimizes the likelihood people who aren't "his people" from showing up, mainly because they will be at work, saving money to get the hell out of Jackson. His crowd will show up in droves for free anything, including hot chocolate.

like a former police chief once said, jackson only has a 'perception of crime'. remember the 5 point plan? how about the linder-maple study? what about the 25 different 'plans' prior to that? now hot cocoa. history repeats itself yet again.

Somebody help me translate the mayor's statement into English:

"Jackson is confronting the contradictions within the justice system by advancing racial and economic justice as the cornerstone of the city's public safety agenda."

I think I know, but I'm afraid to think what I think.

Anonymous said...

BabyChok's mention of "returning citizens" above is a reference to those citizens returning to the city after having done crime in one of Jackson's surrounding municipalities or counties.

Believe me, they were not trying to be "intentionally" ignorant.

HOHO said...

YO! It time FO COCO wit da POPO, featuring BOBO da mayor and DODO from Ward 3. If there are too many HOHOles in the ROROads spewing water, then ROROw YO BOBOat, but don't bring up the ZOZO...that's a NONO.

lifelong Jackson resident here, and do truly love the city, but this:

"Jackson is confronting the contradictions within the justice system by advancing racial and economic justice as the cornerstone of the city's public safety agenda."

minimum 20 years now, the city / county / court system has been essentially controlled by the black community.......The statement above does not float, and would appear to be advancing an agenda by placing catch phrases into less fortunate minds.

Currently, there appears to be no penalty for breaking the law. How about getting a DA that actually wants to do the job, judges that can be fair and apply the law correctly which will protect all members of our society, leadership that supports the police force instead of hanging them out to dry, ordinances that protect and enhance the city and allow for healthy business and development.........

I have to admit, as a Jackson resident, I live here in spite of municipal government.

Anonymous said...

Minstrel show is absolutely right. How can these people expect to be taken seriously when they hold events called, "Coco (SIC) with the Popo"?

It reminds me of back in the waning days of Metrocenter. They put up signs in empty storefronts that said, "Get yo leasing on" in an attempt to convince merchants to rent space. Seriously

I guess this type of hip-hop street speak appeals to a certain demographic. It failed in the case of Metrocenter, obviously.

Anonymous said...

Put out a sign that makes sense not one that shows how stupid you are with your slang. Just say Coco with the Jackson Police and city officials including mayor.

I'm sure that the police appreciate being called PoPo.

"Jackson is confronting the contradictions within the justice system by advancing racial and economic justice as the cornerstone of the city's public safety agenda."

Jackson is confused, we contradict ourselves with our judges letting criminals out after we lock them up. We want people of color to get out and make bail on an equal basis with their white counterparts in Madison and Rankin counties. This will equalize crime in the metro area.

Anonymous said...

The biggest problem with Jackson is too much CoCo and not enough PoPo. And nothing Mayor Delusional Taliaferro-Lamumba will ever do to enrich himself and his entourage is going to change that.

Me Positive said...

The Honorable Mayor Chokwa Antar Lumumba is doing a good job at trying to unite the community. We will see him rise in the political arena. Hopefully he will the Governor of the Great State of Mississippi.

Anonymous said...

I honestly can’t think of anyone who has not been affected by crime and few who haven’t been victimized. We have all drastically changed the way we live our lives every way possibe. Everyone I know protects themselves to the best of their ability by having dogs, fences, neighborhood security, alarm systems, guns. Going out at night get a students last minute supplies for lunch or a school project is now a risk to your life as is exercising during anytime but daylight hours. The injustice is to law abiding young families who aren’t able to spend the money or change their schedules to keep themselves safe in the city where they live and pay taxes.

Anonymous said...

"Economic Justice" for "returning citizens" (returning from prison, that is) = give them your stuff willingly so they don't have to take it.

Anonymous said...

Well, if Lumumba becomes Guv it will be just what we deserve. You really thing Tater Tot will improve the lives of Mississippians with his anti-tax, anti-growth agenda? How can you grow a state that has a third world education system and an even worse infrastructure? If I was on the site selection committee of a Fortune 500 company I would tell my driver to head back to the airport after 10 minutes on our roads and two closed bridge detours. The Republican agenda and how they run this state is indefensible. This is true, and I don't care if you believe me or not, but I ALWAYS vote Republican but I'm now all in for Hood. That's how Trump got elected, because people got sick and tired of the Dems and Repubs refusing to tackle the issues and solve real problems. The Flag, the flag! Personhood, Personhood! Say no to Gay Marriage, say no!! Give me a break. Just fix the frigging roads and bridges so I can get to work on time and don't have to spend my retirement savings on new tires and alignments every 6 months.

No change happening in Jackson anytime soon.

The city should raise taxes on liquor, tobacco, hair extensions, and urban fashions. Regardless of employment status or federal benefits status, the citizens of Jackson always appear to have money for hair extensions and fashion. Both men and women seem to have the most elaborate hair extensions that certainly can't be cheap.

The city should he able to raise enough for the Mayor and his crew to solve all of the city's problems if the consider this vast revenue source.

Ditto, 9:52.

Kingfish, please do your fans a big favor and in the future block any comment that still uses the "perception of crime" meme. Hyper-stale and approaching an emetic level.

Mississippi continues to make even the poorest and least educated(dumbest) whites in the state feel awesome by successfully keeping a great many blacks even poorer and less educated. It's such a great success story that the dumb whites think the nation should follow the plan.

Virginia College is a great place to have the event. Nothing like showcasing an empty, closed business

Anonymous said...

How interesting that they decide to hold the meeting in Northeast Jackson in front of a closed college building. Do they plan to hold the meeting at Sonic, Scrooge's, or the old Fazoli's?

Anonymous said...

I seriously wonder how many hours they spent coming up with this idea, and artwork? Those hours could've been wasted on the water billing system.

Tookey-Tot and his CoCo Puffs are completely unaware that Virginia College no longer occupies the space.

POPO
A Police officer. especially the ones that rides on bikes.

Orgin: California late 80's

police officers that patrols certain beaches on bikes wore a vest that said PO in huge blockletters on each of their chest. which means Police Officer. they usually ride around in group of two's.

when you see them coming by. you see the word "PO" "PO" when they stand next to each other.
Man.. here comes the PoPo to tell us what to do again.

Actually, that’s some genius marketing in the title of the event. It turned heads and got people talking.

Kingfish,

Please keep allowing the Perception of Crime posts. The only emetic here is Burke's pomposity.

Sorry, heads have been turning and people have been talking for decades now regarding Jackson crime. The title of the event(s) denotes nothing more than a casual lack of seriousness from our disinterested poseur Mayor.

Coco with the Popo cancelled per Facebook.

The Real Coco (click here) said...

@8:07 PM True, because the thugs who planned to attend canceled when they learned that the only "free stuff" was hot cocoa, and with his honor's security detail snoozing in the area they wouldn't be able to jack anything.

Coco with the pope? Wtf? Do we have to dumb it down to talk about all the crime? Can we be adults here? Disgusting!

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.
