Drug Dealer Gets 40 Years

Madison-Rankin District Attorney John Bramlett issued the following statement.

Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney John K. Bramlett, Jr., announced today that Jeremiah Kelly was sentenced to 40 years for trafficking a controlled substance. Kelly will not be eligible for early release and will have to serve his sentence day-for-day. His arrest netted marijuana, cocaine, weapons, more than $150,000 in cash and a ledger of those who purchased drugs from him in the past.

In December 2017, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office heard several recorded conversations between Kelly and an inmate regarding a shipment of drugs that was arriving and how to receive and distribute them. Deputies kept Kelly under surveillance for several days until the shipment arrived.

Deputies executed warrants on several houses in Canton where they found drugs, money and guns. Kelly was at one of the locations, where deputies found him in the master bedroom. He was arrested without incident.

District Attorney Bramlett stated, “This is an example of outstanding work done by the Madison County Sheriff’s Department. They should be applauded for all of the work they did in removing a major drug dealer from our streets.”,

District Attorney Bramlett concluded, “Removing Kelly from our society, which could be for the rest of his life, is removing one more major drug dealer from our community who seeks to sell their illegal and dangerous drugs to kids and others. As we have learned over many decades, drugs are a major component to other crimes. We simply will not tolerate drug dealers attempting to take over Madison and Rankin Counties. Law enforcement, judges and prosecutors will stand firm and united against people like Kelly.”

What weed and some powder. White boys slinging Herion, Opiods and Meth, the real killers and they are still walking free.

Here is a southern republican who says that is too long. Let's make armed burglary, murder, and rape a capital crime to be executed immediately after one appeal. (that means real rape, not necessarily every #metoo claim or we were too drunk/high to remember exactly what happened type crap)

I'm going to assume he had the guns as protection from his rivals. If so, and he didn't cross line 1 above, cut him loose. To hell with it, just another poor kid improperly raised is going to take his place anyway.

That's more time than Hinds Co. dishes out for a double murder conviction.

Until Republicans start demanding an end to this ridiculous war on drugs, nothing will ever change. Kids aren't who the ones keeping drug dealers in business. They wouldn't have a business without prohibition.

I’m extremely conservative, but the so-called war on drugs is a failure. Every law made to cut off opiate prescriptions, make Sudafed illegal, etc., only increases the illegal drug trade. Meaning the cartels who import heroin, fentanyl, purer meth than the trailer park chemists ever dreamed of. One day, it will be looked upon as a major policy failure. Just my opinion, as a former drug prosecutor.

I think the drug war is going exactly as planned, sadly. Too much money involved for errybody. Ahh well. Forget the fact that it has completely torn the country apart.
Try to advocate for what seems to be a sane approach to some of this and you’ll be labeled “pro drug dealer” or some such non-sense.

This cat was no small time dealer that just happened to have $150k in cash money! He had a stolen submachine gun and crack that is not listed above. Yeah just let him loose. I’m sure he had the gun to protect himself from his rivals??? Are u crazy? He knew the consequences. He also had about $75k in drug. That’s what the swat team found. The gun was converted to fully automatic. I feel so bad for this gu...poisoning young kids...getting them started on the wrong track. You people are idiots! Research the facts.

We're not crazy, copper. People are in fact tired of the senseless drug war.

Actually I am not a cop. I can however google the man’s name and see the facts. Which drugs should this machine gun carrying low life be able to sell our kids? Heroin, oxy, meth or all drugs?? You want to legalize just pot? Everything? Get going with an answer.

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.
