Four in One Day

JPD issued the following statements. 

(#1) Jackson Police are investigating a fatal double shooting that occurred in the 1900 block of Teakwood Drive.  It happened just before 10:00 pm last night.

Officers were called to a residence there for a shooting.  When they arrived, officers found two male victims suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.  One was located in the driveway of the residence and the second was found a short distance down the street.  Both victims died at the scene.

Officers learned from several individuals inside the residence where the incident originated, that the victims knew each other and had a verbal altercation just prior to the shooting.   One of the males exited the residence and the second male followed.  Minutes later, the individuals inside the residence could hear multiple gunshots being fired.  Based on evidence at the scene, it appeared that the victims fired multiple times striking each other as one of them ran before collapsing a short distance away.

The victims have since been identified as 28 year-old black male, Kameron Virgil, and 34 year-old black male, Elizahwon Burns. 

At this time, no other individuals are believed to have been involved.

(#2)  Jackson Police are investigation a fatal shooting that occurred in the 2300 block of Coronet Place.  It happened just before 7:00 pm yesterday evening.

Officers responded to the call of a vehicle accident.  When they arrived, officers found a small white truck that had left the roadway and crash into the yard of a residence.  Officers then found a white male suffering from multiple gunshot injuries, who later died at the scene.  Several holes were observed on the driver’s side of his vehicle. 

Officers  learned from witness accounts that the victim’ vehicle was stopped in the road a short distance from the accident.  A second, light colored vehicle was stopped near the victim.  Shots were then fired and the victim sped down the road crashing shortly thereafter.  The suspect vehicle followed and several black males were observed running to the victim’s vehicle before quickly returning and fleeing the scene.

The victim has since been identified as 60 year-old, Mack Pope.

The suspect vehicle is only described as a small light colored sedan, possibly white or gold.

Kingfish note: This brings to mind the poem:

One bright day in the middle of the night,
two dead boys got up to fight,
Back to back they faced each other,
drew their swords and shot each other.
A deaf police man heard the noise,
came and shot those two dead boys.
If you don't believe this story is true,
ask the blind man, he saw it too.

There were four homicides in Jackson yesterday as another one took place on Green Avenue yesterday morning.

Assuming 100 murders for population of 80k we are pound for pound more dangerous that even the most dangerous city in the world. At some point black folks are going to have to own this. And blaming it on "whitey" ain't cutting it.

I'm starting to believe some judges must own some interest in funeral homes because business is booming

This AM councilman Aaron Banks said he is most concerned about the innocent man that died at hands of JPD... 2nd he's concerned with crime and thinks it's a budgetary issue. This is how you know he's a poor choice for leadership... blames it on budgets... more money!!! He used the word "mo better" are you kidding me mo freaking better. SNL couldn't write a skit as funny as his live interviews. He's a true low IQ moron.

Crime is a 'budgetary issue'? That could be code for 'We need more grant money infused into the city budget in order to dole it out to the impoverished neighborhoods and appoint more Project Managers'.

We all know that poverty is the cause of crime and poor people are simply criminals at heart anyway, so the way to deal with that is to 'raise them up'. I'm slow and it took me awhile....but, I got there.

It's the culture, stupid. Money, programs, candle-light vigils ain't gonna do a thing. It's part of the culture.

Yes, we are all well aware that councilman Banks is far from a mental giant. Hard to believe he is willing to go on camera. Better to remain quiet and let them wonder than to speak and let them know your a moron. Banks could use that for future advise.

But wait, this is councilman Banks: Pastor and spiritual shepherd, a teacher of teachers, ministerial and business visionary, motivational speaker, political consultant and grassroots organizer Aaron B. Banks is known for his gift to empower and mobilize people to prove what is acceptable unto the Lord.

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.
