Hope the Pancakes Were Worth It.

The Justice Department issued the following statement.

Stefan Brown, 21, of Jackson, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge David C. Bramlette to 108 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for robbing a local business and brandishing a firearm, announced U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst and Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Christopher Freeze.

On January 31, 2017, officers with the Jackson Police Department responded to an armed robbery at the International House of Pancakes (“IHOP”) on Greenway Drive in Jackson. The victims reported, and surveillance video confirmed, that Brown entered the IHOP brandishing a firearm and demanding all of the money in their cash registers. The victims answered Brown’s demands and ran to hide in the restaurant freezer. Brown exited the business with $631.

Brown was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 21, 2018 and pled guilty on January 9, 2019. The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Jackson Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Candace Mayberry.

This case is part of Project EJECT, an initiative by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Mississippi under the U.S. Department of Justice’s Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN). EJECT is a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to fighting and reducing violent crime through prosecution, prevention, re-entry and awareness. EJECT stands for "Empower Justice Expel Crime Together." PSN is bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing our offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement
and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.

Thank God IHop has opened in Flowood for the ones of us that don't want to put our lives in danger for a little fluffed bisquik.

Thank the Good Lord that we have a Justice Department and a federal system that is willing to "assist" local LEOs in the prosecution of crimes in Jackson. No way RSS would have ever gotten around to prosecuting this "petty thief" or Judge Green or her minions would have sentenced him to anything but having to listen to her reading her latest poem.

And, while we are thanking, lets include the appointment of no-nonsense US Attorney Mike Hurst for his continued presence here and throughout South Mississippi.

I don't think I would hide in the freezer.

IHOP in Flowood is a joke. We waited 1 hour and 20 minutes for our meal, and it was served in segments. One person brought out some items while another person LATER brought out more items....AND THIS WAS AT 9:30. By the time we got our stuff, it was closing time.
YES, the IHOP in Flowood is NOT 24 HRS, in spite of what is posted on the walls.
Right down the road is Huddle House, great food and great service.

Cynical Sam, racist much? I’m surprised KF allows links to be used for usernames such as yours.

I stopped going to IHOP, Denny's, WH and/or Huddle House years ago. Usually occupied by idiots who will eat then take up a booth or table for hours on end yammering away about how to run the world, Cheaper to buy a box of mix and stay home in skivvies.

5:06, WTF does that even mean? The people to whom you're referring aren't sitting at YOUR booth or table! Since you're not required to talk / listen to them, what difference does it make to you? Your post make absolutely NO sense, other than to complain about nothing

What is it with the people in Jackson and pancakes?

@5:40 PM - They do create quite a flap, Jack.

The DOJ interjecting itself into purely local crime issues....

Ridiculous waste of resources.

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. 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.
