Fisher Gets Award

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety issued the following statement.

Department of Public Safety Commissioner Marshall Fisher was honored for his contributions to increased law enforcement coordination in an awards ceremony at the United States Attorney’s Office in downtown Jackson Thursday.

U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst of the Southern District of Mississippi presented the 2018 George L. Phillips Award to Commissioner Fisher, making him the first recipient in 11 years, and one of four since 2006. The award recognizes individuals outside the U.S. Attorney’s Office who have contributed significantly to the increased coordination of law enforcement, substantially advanced the goals and mission of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and have exhibited genuine and consistent support of law enforcement, particularly the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Commissioner Fisher said he’s humbled to receive the award named after his longtime friend, former U.S. Attorney George Phillips.

“Just do the right thing,” he said. “That’s what George would always say: ‘Just do the right thing.’ Loyalty meant the world to him, and it means everything to me. To even have my name mentioned alongside his is a real honor.”

Commissioner Fisher served as the Agent in Charge of Drug Enforcement Administration operations in Mississippi for several years. After retiring from DEA, he served as Director of the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics. He also served briefly as the state director for the Mississippi Gulf Coast High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area and, in 2015, he was called upon again to serve his state as the Commissioner of the Mississippi Department of Corrections. In January 2017, he was appointed Commissioner of DPS.

Former U.S. Attorney Phillips began his service as the youngest U.S. Attorney in the nation. He served under three Presidents and is credited with creating DOJ’s Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee. He was known nationally for many things as U.S. Attorney, but was best known for creating the DOJ’s Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee.

“Commissioner Fisher is most deserving of this award because throughout his career, he has coordinated joint operations involving DEA, Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, Mississippi Highway Patrol and numerous other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies,” U.S. Attorney Hurst said. “Commissioner Fisher is a longtime friend of this office.”

I thought Hurst knew what he was doing. Guess not. I bet Phil was pissed that he didn’t get it himself.

How can he be the first in 11 years and one of four in the past 8? That makes even less sense than him getting an award.

The second bullshit claim is that Fisher was 'humbled'. Imagine that.

George Phillips was great for Mississippi.

So since fisher started his career how much has drug use dropped. Should be wiped out by now since he has been around so long. All he has done for sure is wipe out the use on legal drugs. First with Zyrtec d type allergy meds and codine. As for Zyrtec I can drive to any surrounding state and buy it off the shelf. Or pay my doctor $100 plus the cost of the med to prescribe it. Codine is a joke. Just a way for lawyers to play jackpot justice. If people are truly addicted they will find a substitute such as herion which is much cheaper. However almost none has died from taking codine as prescribed and drinking or taking Xanax. Fisher can’t help it realty because he is just stupid but hurst should have know better.

I absolutely love awards that government officials give to one another - so Fisher got an award for doing something he should have been doing all along - I'm very impressed! And I love what he said about loyalty, it speaks volumes about what's really important to him - loyalty first, mission second. This award is a joke - when he was running MBN, Fisher consistently refused to share critical officer safety information and refused to coordinate with other agencies because he and his lackies CLAIMED it would jeopardize undercover operations, when he was really wanting to take credit for everything. Once a fed...always a fed.

Hurst is Bryant’s boy. Fisher is Bryant’s boy. This is just the Bryant machine taking care of their own. They are positioning that ass clown Fisher for something big after Bryant leaves office. It better come with a big office so he and his big ego will fit

No 10:11, all that means is he's been the Governor's boy since his DEA days. He ran all his agencies by fear and intimidation since day one. His staff rarely respected his tactics..

Fisher actually thinks of himself as a four-star general. He covets the stars all these comedic chiefs of police have on their shoulder-boards. Nobody has five, but that's Fisher's dream.

TEN HUT!

All of Fishers positions have been appointed by the Governor. Look at how many patrolman he's attempted to fire at MPH, based on because I can, and because I SAID SO, mentality. All have been reinstated.
Not impressed with this and that awards..
Blah blah blah..

I follow this blog from time to time, especially when one of my old friends is mentioned. At one time, Fisher was a pretty decent DEA Agent, but I guess the power went to his head, what a shame.

This is a government law enforcement award for those who play well with other agencies. Why Hurst made this move raises a lot of questions and makes me wonder if he really aware. Fisher gets the award for playing well with others but not doing his job effectively. This is like a chamber of commerce giving an award to one of its members.

Fisher is a joke. Cronies giving their cronie buddy’s awards.

Don't forget Barney Fife, aka John Dowdy worked in the federal system for decades before joining Bryant's posse, so he probably had as much to do with this as Hurst.

They gotta strike back against all these recent moves in support of that pesky constitution!! Bunch of sissies and drug dealer types just don't understand.

I get an award for doing my job too; it's called a paycheck! It's not as big as some, but it's larger than others'.

"How can he be the first in 11 years and one of four in the past 8?"

If not confusing, it's certainly meaningless.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug.
