Man Killed on Clinton Blvd.

Update: JPD arrested Jonathan Hawkins and charged him with vehicular homicide and felony leaving the scene  of an accident.


JPD issued the following statement.

Officers responded to the 5000 block of Clinton Boulevard where they found an unresponsive black male suffering from severe injuries.  He was later pronounced deceased at the scene.

Does this count as #49 in the 2019 Jackson Murder Race?

When they can't get a gun, they use a car. I don't hear any demands from the anti-rights people to abolish cars.

When cars are outlawed, only outlaws will have cars.

Cars don’t kill people....

Apples and oranges. Guns are a huge problem in America and continue to enable senseless violence. Get’m off the streets of Jackson and homicide rates will plummet. #FACT

As WLBT announced last night " this accident may have Ben intentional." You've got to love our local TV news outlets!

6:37 pm A citizen has to have a driver's license and a license plate to drive a car. That makes it easier to identify the " murderer" . And, no one has ever argued that the blind or drunk or crazy or even too old, should drive a car!

What are you compensating for? said...

@6:37 PM
Nice strawman. Automobiles are not designed specifically to be killing machines.

Assault weapons on the other hand are designed for killing as many people as efficiently as possible. Designed for fast reloading during warfare.

If you think you need to possess
Assault weapons designed for war to maintain your supremacy then you are too mentally ill to possess any guns.

So no guns = no crime?

Fucking idiots.

@8:23 then let's ban all automobiles that can exceed the maximum speed of 70mph. Now who is the strawman?

In 2018 there were 40,000+ deaths by automobile. In 2018 there were 14,600 deaths by guns.
Apparently automobiles are a much more efficient killing machine.
Islamic jihadists have mowed down quite a few people with trucks and cars. They see the superior killing ability of a large truck coupled with a crowd of innocent tourists.
If you think you need to possess your Prius to maintain your moral superiority then you are too mentally ill to possess any vehicle.

@8:22. Can you list the last murder in Mississippi, that was committed using an “assault weapon”?

How do you propose "get'm off the streets"? BE SPECIFIC.

I've heard it all. I've even heard gun nuts claim more people are killed by hammers than as salt rifles.

Your ranting doesn't contradict my claim that cars (and hammers) aren't made specifically for efficient killing while firearms are, in fact.

And I wouldn't be caught dead in a Toyota. I drive a Tesla.

No more assault weapons comments. Really? A post about someone killing a man by hitting him with a car brings on a full-fledged debate over assault weapons?

I have seen way too many people look directly into on coming traffic (that has a green light) and wade into traffic regardless. And this is on Gallatin street when turning onto Capitol street. I also saw an obviously mentally ill man standing in the middle of High Street and Larson Street having an animated conversation with nobody this past Friday during 5PM traffic. I also saw someone walking in the street headed west on High Street near the Woolfolk building when there was a serviceable sidewalk not five feet also during rush hour. So to hear of yet another person hit and killed does not surprise me. It would not surprise me to learn they were also mentally disturbed.

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. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
