Clinton Arrests Suspected Burglar, Public Defender Squawks

The Clinton Police Department issued the following statement.

Clinton Police have arrested an individual wanted in connection to multiple burglaries in Clinton and the metro Jackson area.  Between February 8, 2019 and April 4, 2019, the Clinton police Department investigated nearly twenty (20) auto burglaries.  Of the reported burglaries, all thefts occurred as the result of unlocked vehicle doors.

The primary target of the burglaries were firearms being unattended in the vehicles being left unlocked. With the aid of the Flowood, Mississippi Police Department, Clinton Police detectives were provided evidence that linked 18 year old Quanneic “Quan” Phillips of Jackson, Mississippi to the burglaries. Photographic and video evidence depicts Quan in possession of several stolen firearms, believed to have been stolen as a result of auto burglaries in Clinton.

Armed with arrest warrants issued by CPD, the US Marshal Task Force located and arrested Quan on April 10, 2019 on Dixon Road in Jackson. Additional evidence gathered by the CPD detectives determined that Quan was responsible for a residential burglary in Clinton, just one (1) day prior to his arrest.

Further evidence linked Quan to residential and auto burglaries in Jackson, Mississippi. As of June 4, 2019, Clinton Police have Quan charged with fifteen (15) counts of Auto Burglary, one (1) count of Trafficking in Stolen Firearms, and one (1) count residential burglary. Bond is set at $320,000.00.

In each of these cases, the cars were left open and provided an opportunity for theft.. It is important to be responsible and secure firearms in residences, as they should not be left in unattended vehicles. These stolen firearms will ultimately play a role in a violent crime. Firearms left in vehicles are the primary target for would be thieves.

Clinton Police are seeking the partnership of residents in reducing the opportunity for theft by locking vehicles and securing firearms in residences when not utilizing a vehicle. 

Residents are reminded to lock doors at your residence or on your vehicle. Vehicle doors left unlocked provide an opportunity for someone who most likely wouldn’t have forced entry into a locked vehicle. Police Chief Ford Hayman noted that, more often than not, auto burglaries are the result of vehicles being left unlocked.

“An unlocked vehicle is an opportunity for a thief, especially if valuables are left in plain view,” Hayman noted. Aside from locking your vehicle, take a moment to remove valuables: wallets, purses, guns, electronics, sporting equipment, etc. from your vehicle. Removing and securing your property is eliminating an opportunity for a thief.”

Kingfish note: The Hinds County Public Defender took strong exception to the handling of this case and filed a petition for a writ of Habeas Corpus  on May 31.  There is a dispute between the city of Clinton and the Public Defender over the representation of criminal defendants in municipal court.

The Public Defender's petition stated Phillips was held in the Raymond Detention Center since May 3 without indictment.  He was charged with 14 counts of auto burglary and one count of trafficking in stolen firearms.  Clinton police charged him with another count of auto burglary and one count of house burglary after his arrest.

The Clinton Municipal Court appointed the Hinds County Public Defender on May 3 to represent Philips. However, the Court also scheduled his preliminary hearing for May 15.  The Public Defender squawked the Court did not provide timely notice until "late afternoon, May 13."  The Court postponed the hearing until May 22.  However, the Public Defender twice told the Court it would be unavailable.

The Public Defender tried to have it both ways as it argued it couldn't attend the preliminary hearing but then argued Phillips should be set free "due to failure to hold a preliminary hearing within 14 days of the demand issued by the Court on May 3."    The petition states he remains in jail due to his inability to pay a $320,000 cash bond.

The petition is assigned to Hinds County Circuit Judge Winston Kidd.

Morons! If you are going to leave a firearm in a vehicle:

2. Spend $11 at Academy Sports and buy a small gun safe made for vehicles. No drilling required!
3. Its people like you that make it harder for the rest of us to defend the Second Amendment!

If this defender was sincere, this defender would also be squawking about the dozens of detainees in the detention center in Raymond who have not been indicted but have been sitting there for 6 months to a year. The only difference is that this one dude is in Clinton and they don't like Clinton stirring the pot.

The public defenders in Hinds County have had things too easy for the last decade. Good for Clinton to assist Hinds' judicial system and keep the process moving.

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.
