Dispatch from Pelahatchie (Pow-Pow-Pow Edition)

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety issued the following statement.

On Monday, February 18, 2019, at the request of the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is currently investigating an officer involved shooting of a male subject at a residence on Dillard Avenue in Rankin County. The subject was transported to a local hospital due to gunshot wounds and later succumbed to his injuries. A weapon was recovered at the scene.

MBI Special Agents, assisted by the MBI Crime Scene Unit, will gather any and all relevant interviews and evidence as part of this ongoing investigation. Our investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney’s office throughout the process for consideration and review.

As is our policy, MBI does not identify the officers involved in these types of incidents and instead refers questions of that nature to their respective department.

Kingfish note: Posted below is a video that appeared on Facebook.  Sawces say the deceased Pierre Woods was high on meth and had a history of mental problems.  Police threw a tear gas canister into the house.  The police were prepared to take him down if he was unarmed as a K-9 unit was standing close to the door for when he emerged.  However, the deceased came out of the house with a gun and pointed it at the officers.  A SWAT team had its weapons aimed at the house.  The SWAT team fired their weapons at Woods.

Holy hell, how many shots does it take to kill a man? You see the body drop and still here a ridiculous amount of shots still being fired.

If that is the suspect falling to the ground, one has to wonder why after he is face down on the ground there is a barrage of gunfire. The man was already dead. With all due respect, do these officers get penalized if they don't fire their weapons? They may have been justified in shooting, but was all that necessary?

The guy was obviously wearing body armor. It took the whole armory to bring him down. Cowboy up!

Was that volume of fire truly necessary?

Reminds me of a party hunt at deer camp.

I concur. Without second-guessing the "professionals" one does wonder why so many shots were fired after the threat appeared neutralized. It was one guy with a gun NOT a human wave attack.

The problem with bullets is that they keep on going. It appeared a residential neighborhood with plenty of idiots blundering around watching the action and presenting unintended targets.

Neighbors had been evacuated. Full SWAT team, they fire 3-4 rounds each, sounds like a lot of rounds. Dude came out firing. So there should be a designated shooter in such situations?

You don’t know if he is stunned or down for good. You are taught when you fire in situations like that, three rounds into the suspect. So if all members fired that’s what you are hearing. They were also shot at twice by the suspect in the hour they were there.

Are cops being trained studying SWAT team video games?

But maybe there will be an autopsy to determine whose was the fatal round. Then we can celebrate the winner.

They should have just let him go and arrested him when he wasn't so angry.

That “get sum” mentality is bad for PR.

This is how redflag confiscation will go down. Once the order has been issued, you better hand them over of you will be ventilated.

It won't take more than a few repeats of what you just saw to cow the so called "patriots" who like to cry Come and take it! with their semi-auto Ar15 from Van's.

No militia is as prepared as law enforcement. Hollywood recently made a movie showing a clever technique that could be used to facilitate the removal of local paramilitary patriot groups.

A crazy man with a death wish is capable of a lot of destruction, including use of explosives. Best to over-do it.

I fear Hermit King is exactly right. Nobody is quite as ready for the big shootout as the extra y chromosome defectives of your local SWAT team. They train for it. They dream of it. In a word they're ready.

Think of the Chicago cop recently convicted of unloading his service weapon into that kid. His whole life was waiting for that chance. It wasn't much of a chance but it was his and he took it.

In the real world nobody gives diddly about your race or politics they're just out there waiting for somebody to shoot. In a pinch all the AR's you have buried in the back yard are just so much justification for for a nice clean shoot by your local SWAT team, or neighborhood committee, or other entity they empower to come to your house and take your guns, gold, or whatever else you've socked away for doomsday.

Think David Koresh.

these are tense situations. they will study this and make revisions. i will say the PD out there is on steroids and are angry at all their citizens. there will be more of this...watch.

Well if you are trying to make it home that night, and there is a crazed meth head with a weapon, what is the cost of sending a few more rounds his direction, just to be sure you and your buds go home to their ladies and kiddos? CPAs would call it "immaterial". The pansies on this message board hands would be shaking so bad they would still be shooting at him.

Anonymous said...

I know we all want to support the cops, and they are the experts, and it's easy to second-guess. But, look at this video and listen. The guy fell to the ground face first after the first few shots. Then after he's obviously lying on the ground face down dead, all hell breaks loose. Some cops were shooting just because other cops were shooting, not because they saw a threat. O.K. lets just sweep it under the rug. Thanks for their service.

(I hope they get better training before they come into my neighborhood.)

10:04 Good point. This guy's got to have over 20-30 rounds go through him. If not, where did the bullets go? In that neighborhood it must not make any difference. And like you said, the 'hood was evacuated. Strange though, somebody was making video and talking too. But they are no strangers to gunfire...

Hermit King said...

@11:00AM
You got my point. It is far easier to elect leaders who will defend our rights than to beg a future government to return those rights.

Plaintiffs attorney: Officer, why did you and your team fire 50 rounds at the decedent?

SWAT sergeant: That's all the ammo that we had.

It reminded me of that scene from Ghostbusters when they encounter something in the hotel and all the guys start blasting. Bill Murray was really funny there.

Okay, I'm sorry... I laughed at 10:10.

Hanz up dont shoot said...

Late to the party here, but I’ve watched multiple videos of this as they will in their after action reviews. This was not the picture of a professional employment of tactical assets. Period. LEOs were put in danger because they create 0 distance between their positions and the suspects position...I.e no reaction time. They then forced the situation with tear gas and a flash bang. And if you’ve ever been hit with tear gas in a confined space you know that that is exactly what you look like coming out of the building...you have no other thought than you have to get out of here. Civilians were put in danger because they were not pushed back far enough and could easily be caught in any crossfire...look at all the videos of people wandering around and out of the 100 or so LEOs there are two of them wandering around trying to get people back away from the scene...the swat team when they showed up looked like they were climbing out of the back of paw-paws Chevy Scottsdale at the fish fry. Having all this law enforcement lollygagging a few feet away from an armed meth head who had already shot at people was irresponsible...and that was much more than 3 shots per seat team member.

I'm so glad all of you folks aren't the police. It must be so nice to sit back on your computers and critique the actions of people who are actually being shot at. Keep up the good work armchair warriors.

I love reading the liberal post. Maybe he just needed a hug.

Well said, 3:02. Your observations mirror my own.

I support law enforcement, but not blindly. This looks bad... very bad.

Better address it internally. Otherwise the public will address it for you.

Yes, even in Rankin County.

The cops took out a bad guy. I prefer to just say thank you and go about my business.

Kingfish @ 10:04. Nah man, look at first video shown on news channels that evening. The video with a police dog being restrained, the officer in front of the dog, leaning against the car. He is changing to another magazine. Two or Three shots each, Nah Man.

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.
