FBI Still Investigating Capitol Nooses

The FBI is investigating the placement of several nooses and signs on the Capitol grounds on the day before the November 27, 2018 Senate election.   JJ obtained a copy of the police report.  It is posted below.

A Capitol Police officer discovered seven nooses hanging from a tree on the south lawn on the Capitol grounds on the morning of November 26, 2018.    There were several signs that "appeared to be politically motivated against U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith.

One report states:

On Monday, November 26, 2018, at approximately 0830 hours, Lt. Eddie Washington, Officer William Smith and I, Sgt. Eugene Williams, Jr., responded to a noose/rope in a tree on the south lawn of the New Capitol. The rope was tied in a noose position. A news reporter, Reggi Dupree Marion, was advised by his supervisor to check out a report of a noose hanging from a tree at the New Capitol. Marion entered the New Capitol to report the situation.

Investigator Johnnie Bowden was contacted and advised of the situation.

The noose/rope was located in a tree on the south lawn of the New Capitol. The noose/rope was photographed and recovered by Lt. Washington. The noose/rope was secured at the New Capitol Police Office. Shortly, thereafter Assistant Chief King arrived at the New Capitol and took possession on the noose/rope.

In addition, several noose/ropes were found in other trees on the New Capitol grounds. Also, signs with Mississippi lynching information were found on the New Capitol grounds. The investigation continues.

The FBI is investigating the incident and has custody of all records, video recordings, and evidence.

Thank you for keeping this on the radar. JJ's bark echos much farther and louder than the big media dogs on the block would care to admit.

why is hanging a noose in a tree a crime? The whole matter seems silly.

Anonymous said...

you would think there would be enough cameras in and around the capitol grounds to see who placed the nooses.

It's terrible that WAPT, WLBT, Fox News, & others do little to no follow up reporting.

A completely unsophisticated and ineffective political ploy which only plays in the political backwater which is Mississippi. No minds were changed, no votes were flipped and Mississippi remains what it has always been. The FBI knows who did it but will keep those results in their back pocket just in case...

Wouldn't surprise me if the culprit(s) are affiliated with the media.

wait wait wait wait a minute!!! original reports never included the fact that these signs were seen on the ground accompanying the nooses. one of the signs clearly states "we are hanging nooses to show that times haven't changed", followed by other pro-civil rights language.

total game changer. why were we fed the story that racists hung the nooses? i knew that the nooses were probably a stunt but i didn't know that police and/or the press had swept the signs under the rug, so to speak.

not surprised. they still were not able to throw the election. God Bless the village idiot CHS for still managing to pull out a victory.

I thought someone took responsibility for it already. Some activist or leftist group or something. Guess I'm remembering that one wrong.

Why waste the time and manpower?

This was obviously perpetrated by minority activists. As a result follow up on the story is DOA. JJ’s post is likely the last you will hear about this.

If liberal media had the same info that JJ has, then it was definitely trying to change the narrative. It was definitely another unnecessary shot taken at MS.

Or is this simply a case of lazy journalism by the locals?

Could this be a case of the powers that be suppressing information, so that the activist would not be given a voice?

Guys, don't you get it? To everyone in the media it's still 1955 in Mis'sippi. People either live in plantation mansions or in sharecropper shacks, half the population is shoeless and toothless, klansmen roam the streets in white robe and noble minorities cower in fear of being lynched.

Anything that might shatter that narrative is either ignored or printed on page 64 under the list of upcoming river stages.

You see, they need Mississippi as a whipping boy to avoid paying attention to the shortcomings and strife in their own backyards, so don't expect them to come to the Magnolia State with an open mind.

Instead, expect pieces like this stellar bit of journalism from 2012, by Nancy Pelosi's daughter.

I agree with the other posters. This is clearly the work of Hillary, Chuck, Nancy, Jim Hood and the fake media in an effort to make the republican state look bad. No different than when they manufacture dui charges against our leadership or fake videos showing Cindy Smith saying these she never said. They are truly delusional.

Rest assured if the context of placement of the nooses indicated support for Hyde-Smith, then reporting would have commenced daily in the CL (and would continue non-stop) with full imputation of responsibility to Hyde-Smith, Trump, and the claimed horrible racial climate in Mississippi. Pulitzer prize recognition would be sought. A reporter would burnish his or her credentials as being the voice against racism in Mississippi.

But since one can easily conclude that left-wing agitators or Espy supporters placed the signs and nooses, the real story was never going to be pursued (i.e., the story of cynical use of racism and racist imagery in Mississippi for left-wing political purposes)-- except for outlets like JJ.

JJ, keep shining the light. Those who do this kind of thing are not friends of Mississippi.

Blame It On McDaniel And Just Move On.. said...

Glad to see the follow-up. Wonder if we'd be seeing it had several of not posted periodically regarding lack of follow-up.

So...if I understand the report, a media outlet of some sort got an anonymous call and sent a black reporter (relative of ex-mayor Dupree?) swiftly to the scene to investigate and report this to the Capitol PoPo. Let's pretend every publisher and news anchor does NOT have Caller-ID on their phone.

What we will later learn (if anything) will be identical to the church torching and pro-Trump graffiti in Greenville during the presidential campaign...and that is that one or more citizens of color are the perps.

PS: Candidate Mike Espy rode into the campaign on a gleaming white horse with grande promises. I wonder if there are hoof prints on the capitol grounds.

Seems to me it's free speech on public grounds unless any of the signs contained a threat to CHS's life or there was any damage to trees or the building.

This is an illegal use of the FBI if there is no damage or threat and far more objectionable.

Yes, it's amazing that our Capitol has no security cameras.

It's those motley fools Adofo Minka and Joseph Jordan. They are poster board activists. Match hand-writing on the boards from W. Jackson protest at the park. It's the same idiots.

Glad JJ is following up on this one.

No doubt this was done by liberal students. Look at the signs.

My guess is some adult activist who didn't have the nutts to do it hired some stupid kids and gave them a few 20 dollar bills. But, I could be wrong, so lets get the facts.

Expose the perpetrators. That'll teach 'em. After that we can put to rest this business about Mississippi being the heart of racism and lynching. It was all a smear campaign in the first place. We know that most of 'em lynched themselves or each other just for the liberal media. This will prove it. The FBI is run by the liberal media so don't expect them to do anything. We should get a bunch of the real Southern patriots together and find these culprits and show 'em some Southern justice. Waiting for "investigation" is just a waste of time. Back in the ole days we would just drag em out and ...

@12:07 PM is right. Look at the state of the City of Jackson today! I bet we could make it as peaceful and prosperous as it was in 1955 if we all got together and went street by street, house by house, sweeping the streets and cleaning out the riffraff!

Can't wait until the benefits run out next month!

so, a burning cross is "free speech" also?

no, this is domestic terrorism, by definition

How's that shutdown working for you guys, wait Trump's going to declare a National Emergency! I can't wait for the next President, I can think of a few other National Emergencies.
Elections have consequences!
After Trump you boys who voted for him will never be in control again!

Citizen W said...

@4:38 PM
You are as delusional as Hillary on election night. Contrary to the fake media narrative, the President fills every stadium and venue to capacity when he has a rally. Democrats can't even fill a high school gym for a town hall meeting.

Trump may not have the support of Don Lemon and Rachel Maddow, but the majority of the nation supports him.

Before you retort that he lost the House, he didn't campaign for Reps, just Senators. And the Senate gained a larger majority.

The shutdown is doing nothing but proving who worthless the Federal government is. The longer long the shutdown lasts while life goes on fine for the citizens who aren't tax suckling parasites, the better.

Waiting for the High Priest of the Capitol Poleece to finally admit that they do NOT have cameras stationed around those buildings as has been previously claimed.

If they did have, the cameras would have captured Feel Brant out there carving TATE in a heart on that oak tree to the left of the front sidewalk.

Rod Knox said...

Yeah 1:00. Just get things back to 1955. That was a great year. How many lynchings were there? Could you pass the literacy test that was given to blacks? And how many blacks would have been fired if they took off work to vote?

Life was tough for blacks in 1955 and have you ever heard the expression "what goes around comes around?" The cheating and thieving lynching, de jure and de facto that made those good ole days good for you has come back to haunt us. Blacks endured the oppression for many decades with a only a deaf ear to complain to. Are you man enough to deal with the pendulums return? "For they sow the wind and reap the whirlwind."

Stupid stunt but unless they somehow threatened CHS or my deplorable ass I don’t see how they broke any laws or how this is good use of fbi resources.

A burning cross is free speech, per Judge Sandra D. O'Conner.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on this issue in 2003 regarding a burning cross in Virginia.

Barry Black and other KKK members burned a 30 foot cross facing a public highway.

Compare the handwriting to the many many protest signs at Tougaloo. Compare them to crazies who got "thrown out" of North Park. This should narrow the investigation down.

@5:58, the majority of the nation does not support Trump. All of the polls, including those conducted by conservative pollsters, put Trump’s approval rating at around 40%. But hey, he lies several times a day, so we forgive you.

After his first year the majority of the nation did not support Obama either.

"Stupid stunt but unless they somehow threatened CHS or my deplorable ass I don’t see how they broke any laws or how this is good use of fbi resources."

Tell that to the student who was arrested, tried and jailed for placing a noose on an inanimate object on the Ole Miss campus.

I think the ruling was that his actions had thrown the entire black student population into a state of fear and mental anguish that no amount of campus safe-spaces could have countered.

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.
