16 Year-Old Girl Killed in Drive-By

JPD issued the following statement. 

Jackson Police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred on Larchmont Drive.  It happened just after 10:00 pm yesterday evening. 

Officers responded to a residence in the 4300 block regarding shots being fired. When they arrived, officers found a 16 year-old black female unresponsive and suffering from a gunshot wound.  She was later pronounced deceased at the scene. 

Officers learned that an unknown suspect drove down the street firing shots. A projectile penetrated the home striking the victim.

It's Larchmont Street, not drive, but regardless, it's only the perception of crime.

RIP young lady.

It is not safe to even go into Jackson.

Sales of military grade plate carriers, AR500 Plate armor, kevlar vests, and ballistic glass are a commodity in the City of Jackson. Google street view shows that many houses on this steet have front porches. I would advise that sandbags be stacked to absorb stray pistol and rifle rounds. Water barrels are also good one-time use defense against handgun rounds.

Jackson is a war zone.

Connect the dots, as there was another shooting into a home around the corner at 500 Lindsey Drive, where an adult male was hit.

Yo Baby Chok, do you still see a perception of crime, you jack wagon.

Like,I said in another thread, just wait till the really hot days of summer get here. Than, add a full moon and you are going to get MASS SLAUGHTER.
I'm GOING on line to E-Bay and purchase a bullet proof vest. I've got my bid in on a couple of items. I'm currently high bidder on one at $49.01 Stay out of Jacktown entirely in the meantime. And I do mean,(Mean)time.

Every damn day I look at the Jackson news and know its not if someone was killed but just how many were killed. I grieve for my hometown.

Yet you drive through Jackson neighborhoods and see no police cars at all

#45 at the half-way mark. What is the Mayor's plan to protect the citizens (and visitors) to the City of Jackson? [crickets]

We haven't seen this level of killing since Kane Ditto.

Baby Chok really IS, per capita, creating the most radical city in the Country!

Promises made, promises kept.

On a less sarcastic note: I'm constantly astounded at the nealy complete lack of outrage from the communities in which these killings regularly occur. Have people become so accustomed to them that they simply no longer care about trying to curb them? If so, can you imagine Jackson 5 or 10 years from now?

CHOKWAD how about a curfew or s o m e t h i n g ? ANYTHING!

LBJ’s Great Society was the genesis of the culture we find in the news today. 20 years to make the required legislative changes and another 40 years before the changes will have an appreciable effect.

TheClintonscantsuicideusall said...

"Yet you drive through Jackson neighborhoods and see no police cars at all". Hopefully due to a probable lower officer count than previously posted and hopefully not associated with unacceptable behavior as noted in another article.

Seems to me that the Wild West and frontier towns of old were much safer places to live then many neighborhoods are today. Very sad.

It’s unbelievable the folks that live in these communities put up with this from their elected friends. They just don’t believe they have a choice because that’s what they have been told

I would not have gotten away with the post at 10:32. Kingfish would have shit-canned it immediately. He's often selective in his radar enforcement and indignation.

Now, a curfew is indeed a good idea. What else is there that can be done?

9:14am....we arent at the halfway point just yet. Through May is only 5 months down. Still have 7 to go.

Oh I am so disappointed that my post didn't make Sam's list of spot on entries. Dayum!

10:32 "The Great Society" programs were not the genesis of today's problems. They were a response to the larger problems of that time. Those problems were much deeper and historic. The answers of LBJ's regime were at best temporary fixes for long term problems which required much more than the larger society was prepared to render. To say the "Great Society" is the root cause of this crap is like saying the Civil War was caused by John Brown.

And yes I am a Madison County Republican.

Ian Word said...

1:32pm. Can we agree that fatherless homes are a huge cause of today’s problems? If so, what else would drive the fatherless, unwed mother numbers up over 70% today? I am sure it was not the Civil War.

1:32, 10:32 here. Let’s agree to disagree.

It's the state flag's fault.

The Mayor has very little control over most of these shootings in Jackson. And neither do the police. But every Jackson citizen, the churches and neighborhood associations do have the ability to monitor their neighborhoods and report those youth who are carrying guns and causing trouble. If you see others up to no good, report the police, your neighbors and others of authority. If citizens will rise up and let it be known that their neighborhood is not going to allow this foolishness and depravity, it will make a bid difference. Organize, organize, organize....and let your voice be heard!!!!!

1:32 PM is correct. LBJ's War on Poverty reduced the numbers of poor in the country to its lowest level in history. It was highly successful and LBJ was a great domestic whose reputation is forever tarnished by the fiasco in Vietnam. He will never be given the credit he is due beach use the prosecuted and deepened an unwinnable war.
The reasons that American society is so base and indifferent to human life is that everybody wants to be respected but not to earn that respect and because the USA has become Balkanized into "communities" whose chief reason for existing is that they hate the other communities. Just my opinion!

Cynical Sam said...

2:27 PM - exactly, but we will rarely hear a politician say that, let alone the media, both of whom want to throw more money at the problem.

Anonymous said...

The State, the Governor needs to declare an emergency and take over Jackson. Jackson is beyond repair as long as voters and politicians continue the racial divide.

Mbrookes said...

3:49 is right. The only ones who can improve the neighborhood are the ones who live there. I think part of the reason people don't report the thugs is fear of retaliation, a very real possibility. The lack of police is in direct line from the lack of taxpayers. I live in Jackson and will not be leaving, but I can certainly understand why so many do.

You say that when you drive through some Jackson neighborhoods you don’t see any police cars. Those would be good places to stay far away from. You don’t see police there because some neighborhoods are too damn dangerous for the police to go into without a large number of heavily armed officers.. Jackson has become a lawless ghetto and it gets worse every day.

So is Antard Ladumba going to have a full court press conference with his pda introducing him?

He acted like a complete jackass on the last one.

So hows that conflict resolution training going? Oh and all that grant money for his wife. Just follow the mo eye.
Oh yea I'm an American negro living in this shithole so I can say it.

Anonymous said...

Lumumba is following the Komrade DeBlasio model...get rich by giving your wife millions of dollars to grant to most favored community action groups to execute some nebulous conflict resolution program for which they have no expertise and where no metrics or solid outcomes are captured. DeBlasio's wife and her ilk will walk with nearly $800 Million; let's see how much of YOUR cash Jackson's First Family gets away with. I don't give a rat's ass, I got out of that shithole several years ago.

@ 8:26, I don't know if I'd trust body armor purchased on EBay - several years ago some shithead sold a bunch of knock-off North American Rescue Tourniquets with windlasses made of inferior materials and someone nearly died because the tourniquet failed. Just like body armor, when you need a tourniquet, you need it to work as intended. Spend a little money, and get an in-person fitting from a reputable dealer. That said, if I ever get back to Jackfranistan, I'll be rockin' my chicken plates!

My neighborhood association is too busy trying to figure out how they can soak me with a CID to hang up stupid banners and "beautify" street intersections.

We are on our way to a record folks

In 2015 we had 53 murders with 170,508 citizens

Those numbers made us the 6th most deadly city in the nation.

There are 285 cities in the US that have over 100,000 citizens

Murder rate in 2015 was 31.08 per 100k

We now have fewer citizens and more murder. I think Baby Chokes wants an award

I feel like everybody commenting on this thread is white. Which is fine. It’s like going to my family reunion some of you are a little racist and some of you are overblown liberals. Some that should be happy are angry and some that should be depressed have no worries. But I would be interested to know what real black folks think of this situation, not rich ones on tv from my but ones who live in JACKSON: why do you think things are this way? What do you think should be done to stop it? Do you think this is a tolerable or intolerable level of crime?

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.
