Crime Stats? What Crime Stats?

The city of Jackson hasn't updated the crime reports on the city's website since February.   Posted below is the most recent report available on the website.   Jackson went nearly a year without posting the crime stats until November 2018.  One hopes the city will begin posting them again.

Since "UCR" stands for "uniform crime report", this is the "uniform crime report crime report"?

Well, duh! There have been no crimes since February, only the perception of crimes.

Pretty radical, huh?

De’keither Stamps suggestion to increase police presence to address noise complaints has apparently resolved ALL the crimes in Jackson. Here’s a thought, college age students reside in areas they can afford. Buy up the property and ensure your neighbors are of your own choosing. Perhaps Stamps can recommend increased presence in the areas where the murders are occurring because for awhile they where in close proximity.

Crimes that are happening as reported by the media but not Crime Stats are being addressed with road blocks and events in the park. I know I feel safer knowing that JPD will be able to keep crime low based on these road blocks and barbecue.

So tired of mighty KF throwing rocks at JPD and our city government. It’s easy to criticize from the sidelines. God forbid you highlight the positive going on in Jackson but that wouldn’t help your narrative now would it Sir Fish?

Ever since Baby Chok initiated "midnight basketball," there has been no crime to report.

I'm glad to see there is still full employment in The Department of Redundancy Department.

Layoff of KF. I heard a prominent AA attorney who has his practice in Jackson speak today. In a nutshell he said why would anyone or business want to invest in Jackson when it is a killing field. He blames Jackson's crime problems on the lack of parental control and the failure of the courts to incarcerate the criminals. He also touched on the problems at JPD. While there are many good men and women at JPD, there are a large number of bad apples that also contribute to the problem. When JPD refuses to acknowledge and release the crime stats, that is a sign of cover-up or of denial. Take your choice.

Oh look, it’s the author of the Uniform Crime Report Crime Report.

Actually, I think the reporting on the Dept. of Public Works and the lawsuit against Siemens, et. al., highlight very positive action undertaken by the city government. Everybody knew this junk was going on, but nobody was calling it out or doing anything about it.

Also, I think the reporting on JDP officers tends to show that they do their jobs, often in difficult circumstances. The consistent release of repeat, violent offenders, the failures to timely indict, and the repeated slaps on the wrists, do not reflect on the officers of JDP, and I think that is acknowledged on a regular basis. They just keep having to investigate and arrest the same folks over and over, which IS pointed out on a regular basis, as it should be.

Sometimes positive action takes the form of dealing with some ugly truth.

If the city government wasn't an abject failure the Siemens issue would have been addressed long ago. As for the crime reports, if I was in charge of them I wouldn't want to put them out there either.

So tired of Melvin C. Robinson hogging all the food.

They used to publish incident base crime data that was updated weekly.

View an example here

They haven't updated it since 2017.

I finally submitted a FOIA for this major crimes log in December 2018 after my emails to ask them to update it went without a response. They never responded to my FOIA request after following up with them multiple times. I submitted a complaint to the AG last week. Hope to have an answer by July 2.

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.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
