Don't be unkind, Kingfish. Maybe they were just planning to go shopping in Madison. You know we love those shoppers up in here.

Well it looks like you can't update these stats fast enough. Number 44 and that's just the start of today the 23rd. By the way you can read the tag number from the video.

Great job Jackson!

The bright-spark mayor baby chock told a CH16 reporter that the reason for the shootings is people seeking "long term solutions for short term problems."

That's all that he can come up with; a jingle.

Maybe selling more bonds will help.

LISTEN FOLKS, You haven't seen anything YET. Wait till the hot dry summer days of July & August get here & with a full MOON, there will be wholesale slaughter!!…..
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture
The ice we skate is getting pretty thin
The water's getting warm so you might as well swim
My world's on fire, how about yours?
That's the way I like it and I never get bored
Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid
All that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold.

Top Years for Jackson Murder:

2019 = 112 (Projection based on current murder rate.)

1995 = 92
1994 = 91
2018 = 84
1993 = 84
1991 = 76
2008 = 73
1996 = 67

Maybe if there were laws making it illegal to shoot someone this would stop.

WAPT refers to the Beach Street shooting as number 43. How are regular folk supposed to keep up with the correct body count around here??
Kingfish. That’s how!

Anonymous said...

The reason some are saying there were 43 homicides while others say 44 is because they’re not counting Celeste McDonald, who was killed in Jackson.

There have been 44 this year, not 43.

Anonymous said...

It's just the perception of potentially record breaking homicides.

Don't worry folks, the Mayor wants you to forget about the murders and his inability to get a handle on crime or filling potholes, and "roll with him" this afternoon on a bike for a pride ride through downtown.

Notice how we know NOTHING about these victims. WLBT or any others to my knowledge actually tell us anything about who just lost their life. If they were white and lived in Madison, they would cover the entire family tree. Were they a criminal? or No record? Living in Jackson? or not? It is really as if a stray dog got run over in the street at this point.

My long-term solution to Jackson's "short-term problem" was movin' the hell out. Suburban life is the way to go.

I was obliged to drive into Jackson today on a legal matter. Otherwise I would never have gone there. It was a frightening trip. I was looking for a lawyer's office with a Capitol Street address and was winding around various streets and looking at numbers on buildings, etc.

I stopped several times at the roundabouts and then on Roach and over by the EEOC building, unsure of where my destination was or which way the one-way streets were laid out. Frightening I tell you.

Was approached three times by three different bums holding a sack. And at the corner of State and Pearl, going into downtown, there was a bum leaning up against the concrete wall making motions at me and asking me to roll down my window. The JPD patrolman in front of the Governor's mansion said he had no idea where the 400 block of Capitol was. I'm glad I don't have to go into Jackson often.

Damn! A shooting on Wood Street. Do you think in might possibly be gang related?

Clarksdale mayor, Chuck Espy, is paying each of his criminals, drup dealers, and or gang bangers a $10,000 reward to leave Clarksdale. Says this bonus for being a thug will be paid out of his own pocket.

Says a lot about the commenters here that it's impossible to tell whether 6:07 pm is satire.

Anonymous said...

6:07 is NOT satire. Was that YOU leaning on the wall at State and Pearl?

I think it would be apropos at this time to recycle the infamous Marion Barry quote..............."Except for the murders Washington is a safe place to live!"

Suburbanites trembling with fear at downtown Jackson's roundabouts and one way streets.... You couldn't make it up. It's sad to imagine seeing the world this way, as if all the white collar professionals downtown go to work every day in a scene from Escape from New York.

Kingfish said...

I was on Capitol Street mid afternoon yesterday for over an hour and didn't see a damn thing he mentioned although there are bums.

Sounds to me like he just doesn't know how to get around. The 400 block is between the Governor's mansion and North State Street.

I see a great deal of homeless persons on Frontage Road headed North.

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.
