No big deal. It's part of a culture.

I'm on the East side of Ridgewood near Briarwood but didn't hear the shots. I did hear, what sounded like, 2 quick explosive sounds between 11:30 and 11:45. Almost sounded like a car accident on the interstate or something.

Must have been a riot at Hinds County Jail this morning

The ER staff determined that it was only the perception of a gunshot wound.

How many more of these shootings till you people stop parroting NRA talking points and seriously consider gun control legislation? There are reasonable solutions that should be considered in my humble opinion.

I’m with you 4:11, we need to seriously consider gun control legislation to stop these shootings. We can model our legislation after the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation—Chicago......

So just what are these reasonable solutions that should be considered?

@4:11 PM - you don't have a clue, but you are parroting the left wing progressive party line.

The NRA has little impact on pro-gun issues, but they want people to believe that so their collection plates will overflow.

There are some very effective pro-SECOND AMENDMENT (Bill of Rights) organizations that aren't giddy with getting rich, but are very focused on protecting our RIGHTS!

Maybe you should turn some of that anger inward towards your own city and culture there cowboy. When was the last time you read an article where a couple were walking down the street in Madison and the boyfriend pulled a gun, shot the girl multiple times, then left her in the road to bleed to death? Some cultures do think that is acceptable and would be shocked if it happened. But in other cultures, it's just another day. Take a shot at someone? No big deal. Kill someone and go to prison? No big deal, they know lots of people there and have probably already been there before. It's not the guns a**hole, it's the culture. Why don't you use that racist anger you have to make changes to where one day, when someone gets shot the neighborhood will be shocked and upset instead of ignoring it

Hey dummies? You think more laws are the answer? Guess what, shooting people is against the law but they are still getting shot. Get over your leftist liberal selves and elect some qualified people, administrators and more especially judges. You created the problem and you need to fix it.

@ 9:44 - which one ☝️ of those would have prevented this shooting?

Anonymous said...

We should outlaw shooting people too!

Anonymous said...

Bumper sticker philosophy (but a good one): When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.

A gun doesn’t walk out of the house on its own and begin shooting. What type of gun is never an issue, it’s the person holding it. Gun laws? We have gun laws, but the problem is criminals end up with them

Read this then tell me what we need to do. You lefties need to wake up.

Steets Flowing With Blood said...

So, this "poor woman" would still be with us if not for bump stocks, clips that hold over five and so called assault weapons? Gotcha.

Never mind that the thug-boy who offed her grew up in a culture where life has no value and the way to settle disagreements is either 'you cut somebody or you shoot somebody'.

The sad reality is that none of the above proposed gun control reforms would have had any impact on the shooting in issue (or the many others in Jackson). While gun control may create the perception of action, it won't change anything concerning Jackson's crime crisis. The problems are deeper. They are social, spiritual and practical problems: Lack of commercial activity and tax base, loss of the family unit with engaged fathers in the black community and an persistent sense that the problems are someone else's fault and not those of the leaders in the community and the people themselves. Wealthy cities can mask these problems better. Jackson simply can't.

I’m also with you 9:41. Past time for needed reforms you outline, and the Never Reasonable Anytime (NRA) is headed for Bankruptcy.

8:42 hit it on the head. What was not said is that this situation will most likely NOT change. It just won't. So - barring federal intervention with a long term federally funded education campaign (highly unlikely) stories like this will simply continue to be part of living in this city. A gradual downward spiral. What's at the bottom I wonder? State takeover of the city? How bad does it have to get before that happens? How long will it take to get that bad? How many humans will need to die before real change takes place?

This was a Letter to the Editor many years ago. Leftist libtards will not understand this! Go ahead and try to put a spin on this Gun Grabbers.

My Gun:

Today I swung my front door wide open and placed my Remington 870 right in the doorway. I gave it 4 shells and left it alone and went about my business.
While I was gone, the mail gal delivered my mail, the trash man picked up the trash, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few of my neighbors drove past.
Well, after about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was still sitting there, right where I had left it. It hadn’t killed anyone, even with the numerous opportunities it had been presented to do so. In fact, it hadn’t even loaded itself.
Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the media hype about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people. Either the media is wrong, and it is the misuse of guns by criminals, or I have one of the laziest shotguns ever made. I must hurry off now and check on my spoons. I hear they are making people fat.

One has to wonder just how bad can Jackson get. It’s not going to improve any time soon. Can you imagine what it will be like in ten or twenty years, once the last little tax base has either died or left.

Anonymous said...

Was there a connection between the victim and shooter, or was this another random firing on a vehicle on I 55?

Anonymous said...

@11:26, I see why you saved that amazing story all these years. It probably belongs in a museum, that’s how inspirational it must be to the better educated such as yourself. Unfortunately, just as you amazingly predicted, it is far too deep a thought for me and my leftist libtard friends to comprehend. I guess we will truly never understand the greatness of the anonymous philosopher who so poetically deconstructed an entire political system in an anonymous letter to the editor.

Ghost of Charlton Heston said...

11:26 I have experienced the same with my guns.
Neither one of my two pistols have done squat since I bought them 16 and 23 years ago. They just sit there looking nonchalant. Their little minions, hollow point rounds in a high capacity magazine, still number exactly the same as the day I last returned from the range. My girlfriend and I walk 2 miles a day in our neighborhood. Not once have these guns of mine shot her; much less killed her and left her in the street. My guns have never discharged into a vehicle with small children occupying the back seat. These slothful pistols haven’t even gotten involved in a road rage incident on 220, robbed a Dollar General or made a cameo in a music video.
What makes our guns so unlike the ones we keep reading about in places like Chicago, Baltimore and JACKSON MISSISSIPPI? I wish the Congresswomen Lucy McBath or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would figure this out for all us owners of unproductive firearms.

Why are your leftist libtard friends arming themselves?

You know. I was just thinking. If only we had restrictions on drugs, we wouldn't have a drug problem. Everything would just fix itself.

Do people really think gun restrictions would help anything? Geeze. Facepalm.

Anonymous said...

People who do not favor reasonable restrictions on gun ownership are hopeless, brainless rednecks.

Anonymous said...

Thank you 4:06. Totally correct. Brainless rednecks indeed.

Anonymous said...

Using the term ”redneck” to attack people you disagree with is racist. It should be considered hate speech just like other racially insensitive/inflammatory words. Shame on you.

Hadn't seen many hoodrat rednecks... but, I don't go in that part of town much. Sounds appalling.

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.
