If it's being classified as a 'crime', it shouldn't be called an 'incident'.

It seems like just yesterday that that was a nice part of town. This has truly been sad to watch but the course has been set and there is no reversing it now.

Serious suggestion: Can you figure out a way to put a 'counter' on homicide threads so we can track the number? I hate to just assume there's one per day.

Murder went down pretty close to the two-gated community where Antar lives.

This perceived "incident" occurred less than 1,750 feet from Baby Chok's home. Yo Baby Chok, don't ever let your security gate malfunction, or one of these perceived criminals could enter your little "safe haven."

I wonder why his gates stay locked 24/7?

Wow, this is insane. Northpark Mall packed with hoodlums, the District at Eastover losing customers and seems Fondren and Highland Village are holding it all together.

I'm not a racist. I don't judge someone based on their race. I judge them by their life choices and selection of decorations for their skin and vehicle.

It could be a 19 year old white drop out with rainbow colored hair and skittles teeth with a barney the dinosaur neck tattoo.

That is when I got out while the gettin' is good. Got to beat the declining property values.

Jackson's last "nice part of town" being ruined. Typical.

Do as Mayor Yammeralot says, not as he does. He flies around the country presenting himself as some new-age radical kick-ass Mayor while back here in Jackson its clear that he totally sucks at the job.

What has he actually accomplished? NOTHING.

Clearly your not well informed on the district. Cantina was forced out by fine and dandy that is bringing in there own tex Mex.also that cultivation is packed. Not sure what planer your living on or what your people say in dogwood.

The mayor is moving things along on addressing the street paving crisis in Jackson better than any of the last three or four mayors before him. The horrible sinkhole at Ridgewood and Lelia has finally been fixed. Many of Jackson's thoroughfare streets have been paved or are being paved, and the potholes on many other streets have been spot-filled.

On streets and other issues, we have certainly had worse mayors. I'd give him a reserved positive grade at this moment.

Regarding crime, what really can be done about it? As Ross Perot said, I'm all ears. Stopping crime can best be done on an individual level by doing four simple things: a) avoid the drug culture -- many crimes are related to a bad drug deal, etc.; b) treat your spouse and kids with respect and love -- many other crimes are domestic shootings or killings; c) stay in your house after 10 pm -- most violent random crimes happen at night; and d) arm yourself -- you can legally carry a gun in your car, home, or on your person in Mississippi, so do so.

I know people who live in some of the worst neighborhoods in Jackson who have never been a victim of crime because they follow these four steps.

@10:33 AM - Spouse? Seriously?

How are those CCCJ property values holding up?

I don't see any potholes in the area of S. Pear Orchard Road and Pear Orchard Park. I wonder why?

Uh you left out locking up criminals when they have committed a crime that calls for imprisonment. Based on the rest of your post I'm sure this was just an oversight on your part. But over all a good post Mrs. Lumumba.

"Perception of crime"

Cynical Sam said...

Any truth to the rumor that the responding detectives were disciplined for not dragging the body to the north side of E. County Line Road?

Asking for a friend.

Uh, 8:46...
"Northpark Mall packed with hoodlums" - Nope. You haven't been there and just making assumptions.
"District at Eastover losing customers and businesses" - Nope. Plenty of customers. And one exchange of business.

And 10:05, partially correct.
Cantina was NOT forced out by Fine & Dandy.
Cantina didn't perform well in this market, which is picky about its Mexican food, and there were staffing/service issues. Fine & Dandy is stepping up with another concept to go in the space. Growing pains. The District is going to be "fine and dandy".

We need a HEY JACKASS website for Jackson.

12:29 PM that was too funny. I'm a fat white guy from the north side of the line.

In the past, the Jackson Police Department statistics have shown Jackson in a poor light. In order to make the reporting more accurate, certain incidences will be reclassified. Burglary will now be listed as home inspections. Larcenies and other thefts will be reclassified as income redistribution. Homicides will now be referred to death by natural causes. More changes will be coming.

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.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
