I remember a time when people didn't get shot on BA drive.

I have fond childhood memories of nearby Maria Drive from the late 80s and early 90s. Summers spent with grandparents riding bikes to the parks and the publis swimming pools.

Unfortunately evil white supremacists were intolerant of the repeated property theft and drive-by shootings in the mid 90s so all of the rich white oppressors who could afford to flee did so.

Having witnessed the crime run families out of town instead of white flight causing of the crime gives me insight to see through the revisionist lies of the left.

I perceive that this was a perception of crime. Get well Chief.

Shooting in Jackson is absolutely meaningless. You shoot your gun whenever you feel like having fun or "letting off steam". Where the bullet goes is somebody else's problem. The mayor appoints only municipal court judges who allow this crap without real punishment. He really doesn't care about such things and the JPD don't even bother unless there's a dead body. Cooperative economics, that's the ticket.

Yep, @ 2:15 and 3:07, I too can remember good memories of growing up in South Jackson back in the late 70's and early 80's. It was no NE Jackson, but it was a nice, safe area to live. There were a lot of decent, hard-working people that lived in those parts. I can't tell you the last time I ventured down that way, except traveling on I-55 or I-20. I wouldn't dare go driving thru some of those neighborhoods now. What a shame.......

I think Keflar siding will be HOT demand in Jackson.

100% chance the perp should have already been in jail. This is exactly what the dumbasses voted for and exactly what they've gotten. Heaven help us all.

The only solution for Jackson is to sell everything of value to the Communist Chinese like they are doing in Africa.
God at least wiyh the Chinese running Jackson, the accusations of racism will be directed at someone other than the younger generation of pathetic weak emasculated white males who couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper bag.

Yet Kennuf thinks that it is imperative to penalize C-Stores and require them to have armed guards and close at dark-thirty. Where are you on people being shot in their beds Kennuf????

3:07, you mean to say that it’s actually not my fault after all and I can now discontinue therapy?

Meanwhile our underage mayor is too busy being critical of JPD rather than do anything to help this problem

As a hospice nurse I go into these neighborhoods daily. It is always incumbent on me that it may cost me my life. I take measures to protect myself but it is getting to the point where I am rethinkinking.... every man for himself....

Waiting for KF to post the story about the repeated break-ins at Custom Optical in The Fondren. Get ready for another enclave tax base of trendy white liberal shopping to get its fill of rich cultural diversity and move out.

She says she won't leave. Let's see how long her business insurance holds out.

Any word from the wonderful radical mayor baby chokwe?

Citizen J said...


Mayor Choke has nothing to provide except liberal platitudes about how the crimes of today are caused by the racial injustice of yesterday.

I am amused at the logic that blames the transformation of a city into an impogerished, diseased(HIV) war zone as the fault of European-Americans and not African-Americans.

Plenty of good people in Jackson but nothing will change if self reflection is impossible.

There is no crime in The Fondren. That is only perceived.

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.
