Idiot of the Day

The Ridgeland Police Department issued the following statement.

Thursday, April 11, 2019 approximately 12:40 pm, Ridgeland PD dispatch was notified via 911 call center of an incident on I-55 where a local FBI agent was requesting assistance on a traffic stop. The call indicated the suspect vehicle was traveling north on I-55 and was involved with another unidentified vehicle over a road rage incident. Ridgeland PD officers responded and assisted the agent with the traffic stop near mile marker 107. During the roadside investigation, it was determined the lone occupant of the northbound vehicle had pulled beside a Toyota 4Runner on I-220 near the I-55 interchange and due to an issue of road rage, the suspect discharged a firearm in the direction of the Toyota 4Runner. Officers on scene were able to locate a firearm in the suspect vehicle. One person was taken into custody and Ridgeland Police are in charge of the investigation at this time with assistance from the Jackson FBI in a witness capacity. Investigation into the background of the arrested subject continues and is undetermined if additional charges will be filed. Investigators would like to identify the occupants of the Toyota 4Runner.

The suspect taken into custody has been identified as Larry A. Horton, 37 years of age from Durant, MS. Horton is being charged with one (1) count of Discharging a Firearm within City Limits. At this time, no bond has been set on Horton.

what a weak charge! a person who shoots a squirrel in their backyard in the city, and this thug who shoots an another vehicle on the road get the same charge. Interesting. How about something a little more fitting to the crime. Shaking my head.

I'm on your side Justice for Road Rage. But this here trooper (or is it "troopette?")

is too busy "feeling cute" to calm this fellow down.

I hate the feds as much as the next right-winger but I'm grateful the FBI agent involved himself here. Those damn bullets have a way of not paying much attention to where they stop. It being a highway and all who knows maybe a little kid's life got saved.

3:20- It was a 911 call reporting the incident.

The FBI is involved because they are doing their damn civic duty as witness to a crime. I can already tell you're one of those "all regulations are bad" idiots that wants us all to die from food poisoning because Free Market.

220 is the most lawless strip of highway in the country. OUT-OF-Control !!!

An agent witnessed the incident and contacted local LE to conduct a traffic stop.

Gee, I don't know, maybe he witnessed the incident, pulled the guy over and then called the local PD to handle the situation. You must be one of those "get the feds away from me, I'm a gonna cry" guys.

3:20, it appears from reading the press release (an interesting thing to do before commenting - try it some time) that the Feds were witnesses to the incident and therefore got involved by calling the local PD to handle. Shooting at the other car was a stupid, rage induced action; doing it in front of a fibbie was just pure-de bad timing

Uhh, yeah, they do. And,...they did. God. What are you? Like a Patriot Militia Man Self Made Survival Tactical Constitutional Law Prepper? (who needs an education)

They have JURISDICTION on every inch of US soil. They have arrest authority for all Federal felonies and misdemeanors committed in their presence AND all state, tribal, county, and city FELONIES for which there are reasonable grounds to arrest.

Their policy may dictate that INVESTIGATIVE jurisdiction is shared, or exclusive, or primary, or secondary, or ceded to state and local partners, but that is NOT detention or arrest after a violent felony committed in their presence.

And note that they called the locals instantly, as is appropriate and wise, to make the stop and arrest safely for all parties.

They weren't directing traffic or giving out parking tickets or inspecting the tags on your mattress, Cletus.

Gimme a break. Sounds like you are in a road rage without a road (!!!)

During some road rage and fella discharges a firearm, why isn't that some type of attempted murder/manslaughter charge? If you are mad(road rage), and you shoot towards the person who causes your rage, aren't you attempting to thwart them by shooting them, or at them?

TheClintonscantsuicideusall said...

To have an elevated charge, they need a victim who is willing to come forward. As I read the article they'd like to speak with the victim who probably drove away quickly. Was he/she involved with also displaying a firearm, who knows, but as of the article time no one has come forward. They can only go on what the FBI Agent witnessed, this guy discharging a firearm. And as stsed for the obvious, the FEDS can go and do their job ANYWHERE they want in the USA and USA Territories.

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.
