The Naked News, Capitol Street Edition

 WARNING: POST HAS PARTIAL NUDITY & GRAPHIC PICTURES!

 A  Naked Man Event (NME)  took place Saturday night in front of the Mayflower Cafe.  An adult male stood at the corner of Roach Street and Capitol Street, caddy-corner to the Mayflower Cafe at 6:45 PM, and proceeded to take off his clothes.  The street theatre performance continued as he proceeded to channel his inner Cassius Clay and jump rope off and on for the next 20-30 minutes.









Several people, including the Mayflower Cafe manager and your correspondent, contacted the police.  However, the naked man dressed himself and walked to a neighboring bar, where he stood outside the front door before the police arrived.  Your correspondent pointed him out  and showed them pictures of his attempt to imitate Oh Calcutta.  The officer said they had received several calls about the gentleman in question  and his grotesque behavior.  The police officers talked to him for several minutes before removing him from the scene in an ambulance.

Unfortunately, the police officers and security guard provided more disturbing news.  They said he was dropped off at the bus station by personnel who work at a certain public mental institution in Rankin County that is southeast of the airport.  Such dumping is apparently a regular practice by this facility that is funded by the taxpayers.

Kingfish note: Almost as disturbing was the behavior by another gentleman at the same time - except he was clothed.  A man kept walking up and down the area on both sides of the street.  He became extremely agitated when the police appeared.  He yelled and cursed at them while pulling up plants in front of Parlor Market.  He attempted to stand in front of Mayflower but the security guard made him leave.  The police finally told him to leave the area, which he did.  Several people said he was a new "drop-off" by the mental institution in Rankin County.

Hmm..... maybe we should get around to funding some mental health treatment or providing more beds in this state.  One member of JPD Command said the dropping off of mental patients at the bus station was "wearing out" JPD.

If you want to see the unedited video, click on this link.   It is graphic in nature so don't say you weren't warned.  The police appear at 2:00 or so.   Pixelation would require going through over 2,000 frames.

If I needed another reason to drop The Elite, The Mayflower and Parlor Market from my regular schedule, this rite-cheer is damned sure IT.

Who can investigate this shit from the Whitfield angle? The Attorney General's office has a division that handles abuse of the mentally ill. They're quick to dispatch an investigative crew to nursing homes and residential psychiatric facilities for youth. Let's see how they respond to 'bus station drop-offs of adults'.

I'm all for more funding for mental health. However, as I understand it, either a court decision or changes to the laws have made it so that mental health facilities can't hold patients indefinitely. Even if they really need to be there.

And that is why I go to Table 100 or Tico's. I used to go to Elite, Mayflower, and Parlor Market and the places are still good but the city makes the experience as a whole not worth it. Parking downtown and walking to eat is a running a gauntlet of mentally ill and panhandlers.

Where did he get the jump rope?

Louis LeFleur said...

Well I, for one, will keep going downtown. Almost sorry I missed this "entertainment". Poor guys. They didn't deserve that kind of treatment from the "unnamed" mental institution.

By the way, KF, it appears from the pix that he did not, technically, "take off his clothes". He took off his shirt, if he was wearing one, then pulled down his pants. Same general effect, of course, but may how he was smart enough to stay where he could cover up the "essentials" quickly and easily if needed, which appears to be just what happened.

Anonymous said...

KF, this has nothing to do with funding of mental health programs. You could triple the funding and these folks still can't be institutionalized.

Little known fact - the Department of Mental Health is the largest state agency when measu red by employees. It's employment tripled between 1990 and 2003 with current number of employees almost 9000. More money or more employees cannot change the fact that thsee guys cannot be kept in an institution. I find it deplorable that Whitfield thinks they should use the Jackson MS bus station as a dumping ground, but other than pushing them out the front gate to join the crazy folks already occupying Rankin County as citizens, what should they do with them?

I don't think they can help themselves, so I have sympathy for them.

Our mental system has always been f--d up. I guess it always will be.

IIRC a person can only be committed against their will for 72 hours unless someone obtains a court order stating that they are a clear and present danger to themselves or others. Running around nekkid downtown does not meet that criteria, so they can request a discharge 72 hours after being committed.

Wash, rinse, repeat.

one of these gentlemen actually came IN the Parlor Market, where he was asked repeatedly to leave and then started grabbing drinks off a table. He was removed, after spending at least 2 minutes in the restaurant in a very agitated state and yelling at staff that did try to calmly get him to leave

I feel sorry for them, too. They are mentally ill and need help.

BTW, has anyone seen the homeless woman who wears a homemade black and white nun outfit recently? She's been roaming downtown for years, bless her heart. I haven't seen her for at least a year.

A few weeks ago, after my friends truck was burglarized in broad daylight during lunch hour at Hal and Mals, we were talking with the very nice and very professional responding JPD officer. He told one of their biggest problems down town is surrounding municipalities who dump there destitute on High street or at the bus station.


He said they have seen vehicles from as far away as Vicksburg dumping destitute persons in Jackson... so it doesn’t surprise me that the unarmed, state funded hospital would do it too....

Kingfish said...

Yup. He wore a red shirt.

KF, what the hell do you mean with "we need to fund mental health?" What we need to do is cut more taxes and put money back in the pockets of the working people. These people with mental health problems need to get over it and work hard like the rest of us.

I recently watched a rerun of Law & Order where a mental patient who was dropped off at the subway killed someone. I guess it could happen in real life here.

Mbrookes said...

I certainly will continue to go to the Mayflower. Don't care for Elite or hideously over priced Parlor Market. The problem is that the laws need to address the problem of the mentally ill. It is not their fault that they are that way. Most of them are not violent, just nutty.

It’s as if deinstitutionalizing mental health treatment has had predictable consequences for public safety and quality of life.

Anonymous said...

12:24 has obviously never had to deal with a family member with mental illness. They can't "get over it" and the medications to help them are very expensive. Plus, there's nowhere for them to live when they cannot live at home due to their behavior and the safety of other family members.

The jails are horrible places for the mentally ill. They are not equipped to do anything for them. Health issues in jail are not attended to. Meds which are classified "controlled substances" are not allowed in jail, so the mentally ill person has the additional problem of going cold turkey from one or more medications which are prescribed for their conditions. The withdrawal is horrible.

"It’s as if deinstitutionalizing mental health treatment has had predictable consequences for public safety and quality of life."

Who could have predicted that forcing institutions to allow flagrantly medically ill people to make their own decisions, including to stop psychoactive medications or refuse admission, would result in mentally ill people living on the streets, unable to care for themselves. I mean, really, who could have seen that coming?

Conventional wisdom suggests that the reduction of funding for social welfare policies during the 1980s is the result of a conservative backlash against the welfare state. With such a backlash, it should be expected that changes in the policies toward involuntary commitment of the mentally ill reflect a generally conservative approach to social policy more generally. In this case, however, the complex of social forces that lead to less restrictive guidelines for involuntary commitment are not the result of conservative politics per se, but rather a coalition of fiscal conservatives, law and order Republicans, relatives of mentally ill patients, and the practitioners working with those patients. Combined with a sharp rise in homelessness during the 1980s, Ronald Reagan pursued a policy toward the treatment of mental illness that satisfied special interest groups and the demands of the business community, but failed to address the issue: the treatment of mental illness

Everyone blaming the defunding of insane asylums by past administrations forget that such institutions committed heinous acts such as frontal lobotomies and electrocution to render people harmless and obedient. Does anyone really honestly think that an unelected extrajudicial body should wield such power without due process?

Crazy people existed long before mental institutions and government. Stop believing that government is the solution to every problem and find solutions yourself.

A group of men could've handled this situation by warning the nude dude to put his clothes on or face some very public consequences.

Anonymous said...

I actually encountered this individual 10-15 minutes before he stripped down and started dancing. He was ranting and waving his arms but I don’t think he was violent, he was talking to me from two feet away, I just stood there calmly and tried to ignore him. He eventually walked away. It wasn’t until I was in my vehicle and leaving, I saw him dancing in the nude, right in front of the Mayflower.

"HOW RELEASE OF MENTAL PATIENTS BEGAN

By RICHARD D. LYONSOCT. 30, 1984

THE policy that led to the release of most of the nation's mentally ill patients from the hospital to the community is now widely regarded as a major failure. Sweeping critiques of the policy, notably the recent report of the American Psychiatric Association, have spread the blame everywhere, faulting politicians, civil libertarian lawyers and psychiatrists.

But who, specifically, played some of the more important roles in the formation of this ill-fated policy? What motivated these influential people and what lessons are to be learned?

A detailed picture has emerged from a series of interviews and a review of public records, research reports and institutional recommendations. The picture is one of cost-conscious policy makers, who were quick to buy optimistic projections that were, in some instances, buttressed by misinformation and by a willingness to suspend skepticism.

Many of the psychiatrists involved as practitioners and policy makers in the 1950's and 1960's said in the interviews that heavy responsibility lay on a sometimes neglected aspect of the problem: the overreliance on drugs to do the work of society.

The records show that the politicians were dogged by the image and financial problems posed by the state hospitals and that the scientific and medical establishment sold Congress and the state legislatures a quick fix for a complicated problem that was bought sight unseen."....


SINCE 1984 THE UNDERFUNDING PROBLEMS HAVE GOTTEN WORSE...AS HAVE THE PROBLEMS FOR THE PATIENTS AND THOSE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY NOT LIVING BEHIND GATES AND SECURITY...

Don't forget the VA Hospital in Jackson. Their mental health department stabilizes veterans and then dumps them off at the Gateway Mission to wait weeks for a bed in a long term program.But by gosh that expensive new garden in front of the hospital sure does look pretty.

What is it about the mentally challenged that requires them to remove their clothes in public?
Was the mental case that dropped trousers in front of the UMC also a reject from a mental institution?

Anonymous said...

It was the Carter administration that came up with the process of releasing patients vs warehousing them. This turned into the vast increase in homeless folks camping out on the streets and AR our doorsteps. Funding issues for mental health issues can be debated, discussed and rebuffed, and most any argument about "who shot John" can be found to be true.

The question is - since federal law will not allow the state to keep these people institutionlied against their will, and very often their families (if they have family, or a family that acknowledges their existence) won't take care of them - for whatever reason, good or selfish, what should the state do with them?

Besides the 9000 employees funded by the state (1/3 of the entire state workforce) the highest expenditure for pharmaceutical expenses is for psychological drugs, with four of the top five drugs prescribed being for psychotic issues (over 90% of the Medicaid drug budget.

Don't have an answer, but dumping them off at the bus station and wiping ones hands is not the answer. Just like Madison dropping off their panhandle to the south side of County Line - this is not a problem of Jackson's making. There are plenty of problems with the Capitol city, but the neighboring areas loading up and dumping their problems in downtown Jackson should be stopped.

Carter passed policies for community based treatment. Reagan cut the funding and brought them to the bus station.

I made the comment last year that other state agencies were dropping off mental patients and prisoners at the bus station and I was called a liar. Drug abuse often causes mental illness. I don’t know what the answer is but if something isn’t done then counties from all over the state will be transporting prisoners to Jackson. Hell, we already had to take in the delinquency’s of the 9th ward after Katrina and house them in the weekly Indian owned hotels

One naked dancing mentally ill man does not make a San Francisco equivalent homeless problem for Jackson. I agree there should be more money for mental institutions in this state and this nation. I was in San Francisco last summer and there were homeless, mentally unstable people all over the city.

FACTS:
In 1972 Geraldo Rivera did the Willowbrook School pieces for 20/20.

Willowbrook was an already notorious institution for children who were mentally ill or very below average IQ . It actually became more of a warehouse for unwanted children.

As a result, lawsuits against the School were filed and it was ruled that no one could not be institutionalized " unless they were a danger to themselves or others".


The sensationalized story which overlooked that 1) there were well run institutions for the mentally ill and substance abusers and those who can function well enough to meet their minimum needs and 2) treatment for the mentally ill and substance abusers is life long and not short termed and most often requires competent supervision.


But, the story evoked the public's emotions and anger which pushed politicians to make matters worse with the legislation they added. So, more overly simplistic "solutions" were added to exacerbate a complex problem.

Do not blame a political party or a President, blame ABC's success in turning news into " entertainment" as news shows had never been " profitable" but had been seen as " public service". Blame those who overact without bothering to understand the issues or check out the accuracy. Blame judges who don't know what they don't know and rule based only on a legal understanding without reliable or sufficient expert testimony and who never bother to study human behavior.

The bad outcome was predictable just as the bad outcomes we are seeing now that all news is " entertainment". This is what happens when profit and political expediency infect a society. No long term solution be found. We get short term, feel good laws with bad outcomes which cause emotions to be come more inflamed and misinformation information increases. It's an old, old series of human events that lead to mob induced chaos and conflict.

So look at the people who trigger your emotions without telling you all you need to know and then look in the mirror and reflect on yourself before you caste blame. If you think history is about who wins the battles in wars= and never bother to understand the conditions that allowed war to happen and the villans and heroes to gain enough " followers" ,you are the problem.

My husband and I were back in Jackson for the weekend and we live in New Orleans. We don't even have this kind of excitement here! I am sad that mental health is last on the list for people that really need it. What wasn't mentioned is that I believe it was the same man who had put his clothes on by now stormed the Parlor Market and started yelling and grabbing glasses and making a scene. We were thankful no guns were drawn, but prior to this the police were out front writing parking tickets! If they are trying to revitalize downtown why in the world would they be handing out parking tickets! They should provide free parking and security escorts for businesses.
I will say downtown Jackson looked very clean. We were amazed. They need security and more mental health for these folks that need help. Get it together "Big J".

Interesting that Heraldo Rivera is mentioned in this segment on mental health. Well, not interesting....but fitting.

And to the lady visitor from New Orleans; we could have a mental health facility on every corner in Jackson and that would not address the court decision that people cannot be incarcerated there against their will for over 48 hours. There is a rather large mental health complex on Highway 80 out near I220. I suspect the hundred cars there belong to PERS participants.

The Mayflower, Parlor Market and The Elite don't deserve to be punished because of the mental facilities actions. Those saying they are going to "drop" these local businesses are as much the problem as the people dropping these patients off at the bus stop. And no, you don't have to limit yourself to Table 100 or Tico's because going downtown is a "gauntlet of mentally ill and panhandlers". It's not. If you're that much of a pansy, bring a concealed weapon. You just want to insulate yourself in a Madison/Rankin bubble where the only diversity you encounter is what color your neighbor's leased BMW is and this is just another pathetic excuse. Grow a pair and stand up for your capital city you white flight Tucker Carlson pansies.

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.
