The Return of the Clown

Carlos the Clown is at it again.  Sarah Fowler hit the daily double today as she busted not one but two damn good stories in the newspaper today.  The Clarion-Ledger reported:

An outspoken attorney known for seeking media attention in high-profile cases posted photos on social media Tuesday night of a man hanging from a tree, demanding a full investigation into the death. On Wednesday morning, he admitted to the Clarion Ledger that he did so without contacting the family of the man or authorities who are investigating the death.

In a Facebook post that has since been shared almost 2,000 times, attorney Carlos Moore posted three photos of the deceased man, named him and used a hashtag with the victim's name, calling for "Justice." Moore also tagged his law firm in the post, despite not representing the deceased man's family.

Moore shared the photos on Twitter, as well.

 Private citizens on Sunday reportedly discovered the man's body hanging from a tree in woods near the Luxapilia Creek in Columbus, approximately 100 miles from Grenada, where Moore practices law.
 The Columbus Police Department posted May 6 on Facebook:

 Regarding the death investigation of an African-American male found Sunday, May 5, 2019, in the afternoon near the Luxapilila Creek, the Columbus Police Department has found no evidence indicative of a homicide. The investigation is still ongoing. Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant has ordered an autopsy. No other details on this case will be released by the Columbus Police Department.

Can someone please point out the last time an African American was intentionally hung in Mississippi? Was it before Carlos was born?

The truth will come out. The trend now is to livestream suicides. I've stumbled upon a half dozen in the last year. Quite disturbing. Especially when it is a young girl.

Carlos is going to appear as an even bigger race baiting charlatan if this poor soul also used his smartphone to share his last moments of writhing at the end of a strong cord.

Finally, for anyone considering ending their suffering. You need to drop at least six feet so that you snap your neck and end it quick. The goal is not to strangle yourself.

I’m sure there have been intentional hangings of black folk since he was born. This is Mississippi....never mind. I

Hermit King, where the heck do you hang out on the internet? Dang.

So, Sarah following Facebook is considered "journalism" / "busting a story"? Pitiful.
And thanks for the tip, Hermit at 1:38 PM. Good question 1:57!

Saw this story at lunchtime and just laughed, not about the dead man nor means of death, but about Carlos's handling of it. For years now I haven't been able to read his name as other than Carlos the Clown.

Hermit King said...

It's not a question of where I hang out. It's all about internet protocols and unencrypted video streams, of which there are billions.

I saw the James Woods sci-fi movie Videodrome when I was far too young. Today the idea of random video streams is a reality.

You people need to learn how to encrypt your cheap CCTV cameras and DVRs.

When did they actually start selling law degrees at WalMart ?

Carlos knows that in the world he wants to occupy there is no bad publicity, no bad notoriety, no bad big reputation, it's all about the name recognition.
It doesn't matter if he's right or wrong as long as he's in the picture. What a waste of nerve and determination.

@3:54 so true...could not have said it better.

He should try to get on a reality show and maybe make a run at the presidency. He's on the right track!

KF - I searched for other stories on Carlos the Clown on JJ. Why has the TV footage been deleted? i.e., the $500 fine handed down by Carlton Reeves.

Theca Jones of the Roguish Gent Podcast said...

Hermit King, you're "stumbling" onto live suicides THAT often?! That's... Yeah....

I looked at the clown’s Twitter account. This guy is an unapologetically race baiting ambulance chaser.

His LinkedIn posts are cringe-worthy as well. Again, where is the MS Bar? You have an attorney who has been repeatedly sanctioned by Judges, and now this wretched conduct, and yet again, not a peep from the paper tiger.

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug.
