WLBT: "Canton Corruption"

WLBT covered "Canton Corruption" last night.  The video is posted below.




Unfortunately, the story only covers the voting fraud indictments.  Nothing is mentioned about the numerous problems at CMU, the hiring of Canton aldermen as CMU employees by CMU Commissioners appointed by the same Canton Aldermen, the numerous demands made by the State Auditor on various Canton entities, nor the connections and family relationships between the city, school district, and CMU.  However, one can always hope.

What part did the CMU boys play in this???

Truly acts like he is beyond this, however, don't be surprised when he is fitted for an orange jumpsuit.

The Blackmon firm is all tied up in this also. They will take Canton and now the City of Carthage down with them.

Soon Jerry won't have anything to talk about. Can't bad mouth Duh Maya or CMU or lose money in ads. I see WMGO failing soon.

Truly said he doesn't think the indictments are over with. Meanwhile, he's taking down his chandeliers and rolling up the new sod the city just laid in his yard.

AG, Auditor and DA cut a deal with the Blackmon’s. CMU is untouchable. Time to elect a new DA.

Has Truly stopped filling up his family cars with city gas yet? Asking for a friend in Canton.

The town started its decline when Dr. Truly was first elected years ago. He was always a crook. He was a crook as a physician 30 years ago. I worked in a hospital then and the nurses couldn't get in touch with him for as long as a week at a time when he had patients in the hospital. Look at Canton--while everything flourishes around the city, it and its deplorable schools fail. What a shame for the kids of Canton! Everything the African Americans touch in Canton becomes infected with graft and self-interest. Of course, they can have their own "self-rule" in this apartheid system, but the citizens of Canton are the ones who suffer. I wish everyone would boycott all the businesses there, like A-As boycotted white businesses in the past. The place is a cesspool of corruption and cronyism. Name ONE aspect of life that has improved since blacks have run the city. Name ONE! I call Canton "The Town That Time Forgot." And at this point, we should all "forget it." The worst problem is that the schools are so horrendous that the children of Canton have no hope of ever improving things.

@10:03pm yep you are correct

8:40am...Really? You want to call on a business boycott in Canton? Do you live in Canton? Do you even shop in Canton? Are you aware the businesses in the Historic District in Canton are primarily small independent businesses who are just trying to make a living? Yes, Canton and countless other communities are plagued with corrupt city officials. There are still lots of good people in Canton and they all deserve better. Yes, Canton has declined for several reasons--not just due to the corruption among the ole Canton families and the politicians. Canton is still a great place to shop, live and do business. And there are lots of great people and families in Canton. Is the town perfect? No. Is there corruption? Yes. Perhaps it's time for everyone to put pressure on law enforcement and state officials to do their jobs and clean up the corruption in this State. Much better idea than to encourage a negative and deplorable idea such as a business boycott.

We all should be calling the DA in Canton and the AG and demand they do their jobs. Canton is corrupt!

@1:24 The corruption in Canton and Madison County needs to be addressed by the DA, AG and even the FBI Public Corruption Division. Nothing is going to be resolved by all the anonymous posting or social media bullying. It's time to hold people accountable to do the jobs they were elected to do--at all levels of govt. People in Canton are away of the corruption. Radio owner has been paid to air so much false or tainted news and is now promoting the re-organization of the NAACP branch in Canton--people have no credible source of info. Why doesn't someone do a reputable media blitz and promote an anonymous tip line? There are people who will talk.....they just don't know who to trust.

The current AG has been in the pockets of the Blackmon's for years. They have always given hefty donations for his re-elections and being the good ole white Democratic boy he is, he does what he is told. As 2:13 says, Jerry is now a puppet of these folks. Other writer stated he is so soft and uses some other monotone guy as reader, plays only music for the black community some folks are dropping off from listening to him. It is a shame how Canton has been going, but hope it can be turned around. Was hoping that Gluckstadt annexation went our way this would have injected the voting base with more whites and opened up voting races with more diversity.

I agree with Joy at 1:06. A boycott is a stupid idea and would solve nothing. As long as the voter base in Canton remains the same, it won't matter if the law comes in and cleans the place up. Within two years it would be the same cesspool again.

As a metaphor, I give you New Orleans. They hose down the French Quarter streets every morning at 5:10 a.m. and they smell like piss again that afternoon at 3:45.

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.

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.
