DPS Issues Alert for LEO Threat

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety issued the following statement.

On Thursday, June 13, 2019, Commissioner of Public Safety Marshall Fisher responded to questions about a threat made to law enforcement officials concerning an incident that occurred in Memphis, Tennessee this week. A bulletin was issued by the Mississippi Department of Public Safety to law enforcement officials advising them to use extra caution and be on high alert when they are in public. "We received credible intelligence that a threat had been issued on law enforcement pursuant to the events that occurred in the city of Memphis on Wednesday evening," said DPS Commissioner Marshall Fisher. "I felt it was necessary to get that information out to law enforcement."

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety is responsible for dissemination of information to law enforcement officers and agencies through bulletins released by the Mississippi Analysis and Information Center (MSAIC) also known as the Fusion Center. These bulletins are intended to support local, state, tribal, and federal government agencies in developing/prioritizing protective and support measures relating to existing or emerging threats to the Mississippi Law Enforcement Community. MHP Colonel Chris Gillard stated, “The safety of our law enforcement officers in this state is of utmost priority. The thin blue line protects our citizens everyday and their safety must not be compromised”. Commissioner Fisher added, “We currently have an environment nationwide where it seems that law enforcement officers are increasingly under threats of violence. It's incumbent upon us to get information out as soon as possible."

Thanks you, Valerie, Barry, and Eric.

Sounds like fake news. Probably some wannabe gangster posted some random crap on twitter and now the cops need some publicity so they make a big deal out of nothing.

It is too bad the intelligence gathering operations of the "Mississippi Analysis and Information Center (MSAIC) also known as the Fusion Center" has been unable to detect the threats to the public from the corruption within law enforcement departments around the state. Multiple county Sheriffs have been indicted on drug and felony charges in the past year and multiple police officers have been arrested on felony charges. Who works at this agency, who has been hired by Phil for these high paying "intelligence" jobs?

Law enforcement officers, firemen and assorted other first responders have long been targets for nut cases. This reality increased dramatically when the previous president slung Coleman Fuel on the campfire and suggested LEOs around the country were racist, bigoted thugs. He opened the gate to various angry groups like BLM and Antifa and emboldened the racism of multiple mayors (like Baltimore) and other democrat elected officials. No telling where this will wind up but it ain't gonna end.

I have a relative in a high profile LEO job and we pray he can get to retirement age with time in the trenches.

7:16 PM Obama was correct many are racist, bigoted thugs. Some law enforcement agencies identify and get rid of those types of people but many just help cover up their crimes.

If only the internet could be censored to keep hidden the videos of law enforcement officers brutalizing and murdering people. We don't need all these easily excited people watching such videos. Now when someone is shot in a seemingly justified situation all hell breaks loose due to all the Rodney King and Tamir Rice and Eric Garner killings seen on the www. We need to keep all that police violence covered up.

There is way too much anti- law enforcement media coverage. While so many good deeds go unreported by our law men and women, the media will put countless stories out over a few bad cops. That fuels the flames for more hate for the men and women who serve and protect. And it's a tough job already without that. If you don't think so, try it.

It’s quite easy to see the disparity between the outcomes (although not always the guaranteed end result). For the most part violent whites become docile when LEOs show up, and upon surrendering they are taken into custody. If the violence ensues then the threat is terminated for the most part.

On the flip side of that coin violent blacks become more frantic when LEOs show up again for the most part, and for good reason. Again if violence ensues the threat is terminated. I’m on the other end of the spectrum as I would protest that LEOs exterminate both threats equally.

The mix up is that the media is attempting to lump this in with the nonviolent blacks that have been executed by LEOs. Nowhere near the same. The excessive force argument is valid, but it’s easy to say what is excessive force from the outside looking in.

to 7;20...well maybe you cowboys can get out there and try to control the media the same way you try to control everything else.

George Orwell said "people sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf".
Has been attributed to Churchill too.
Nonetheless, it absolutely true.

Some roughness is not only necessary, but required of those armed on our behalf, whether police or military.

Are any of you stupid enough to think that the average criminal wants to sit down and discuss world hunger or anything else? Or is on their way to give a violin concert?

This criminal in Memphis supposedly shot a citizen multiple times, stole his car, rammed the popo with said car when cornered, emerged from that car waving a firearm. What the hell do you snowflakes think the response should be to him? Counseling? A federal grant to understand his angst or difficult life?

The only thing worse was the community reaction which was typically tribal.

And yes, a true legacy of the obama cult. Consider them when assigning blame to such tragedy.

Rod Knox said...

And here's another video that needlessly(?) makes law enforcement tougher.

Maybe law enforcement officers needs throw out their trash...... But no that would be disloyal. They all must hold that 'thin blue line' even in the face of obvious abuse of the public.

Far too many cops are worse than the street thugs they are sent to protect us from.

This is just more fake news developed to stir up the base from a little man, with a little gun, and a little pecker. It’s the same effort attempted by Tate to stir up the base and unite against the mythical “outside liberals,” blah, blah, blah, blah. It’s the same effort that Donald uses to stir up the base against the illegals. Unfortunately, the average Mississippian has an IQ around 70. They drink the kool aid and start the mythical “fight.” They then run to the polls and vote for these mythical fighters to SAVE them from the devil! And what does our state get in return? We stay dead last in every category, except, of course teen pregnancy, drop out rates, illiteracy, etc. This is the sad truth.

8:17 - We all love it when people like you talk out their ass. You have nothing to back up your bullshit other than your bad attitude, your contempt for authority and your unwillingness to live in a society with rules and order.

Obviously 10:23 has not seen this thugs facebook page or the video by another black man describing this piece of shit. Little man, little gun my ass.

Despite videos of outrageous police brutality piled high and too numerous to catalog law enforcement officers insist that their past misdeeds be excused due to their presumption of innocence, often supported by reams of official reports filled with lies by their buddies. Talk about a swamp.

All these wannabe Dirty Harrys and Chuck Norrisses hit the streets every day looking for a chance at a starring role. I wonder how many practice yelling "Get on your face punk" on their way to work.

Law enforcement has been equipped with military grade equipment. Many of them are on steroids, and many are definitely trigger happy. When they have the opportunity, they love to show their strength by abusing innocent people. Give an idiot a gun and some authority, and stay out of their way. I don't think most agencies have a drug testing program for officers. I don't call cops;we take care of our own. Yes, I believe in the second amendment...

When seconds count, the police are minutes away. Why? Because they are too busy scanning license plates for lucre from asset forfeiture and trying to write speeding tickets.

Today, with MRAPS and plate armor, they are just the armed civilian wing of the MIC police state. I will never lick the boot trying to crush my throat.

I've known a few LEOs in my life, from local officers to county sheriffs to high-ranking feds, and most are decent people trying to do a difficult job but a few have been totally unsuited for the job for a variety of reasons. I've also known quite a few folks in a number of other vocations and in every vocation I can think of, most of those people are decent people trying to do their jobs but a few have been totally unsuited for their profession for a variety of reasons. I would suggest that my experience with human beings and their respective professions is mirrored by every rational, objective person out there. Put another way, if LEOs were bad as a group, there would be a lot more "questionable incidents" than there are now - I would offer that LEOs are a nearly perfect example of the exception proving the (opposite) rule.

Rod Knocker must have been a real outlaw in his younger day. He said on an earlier post that he's in his 70s. What happened in this man's life to make him so mean-spirited, anti-authority and piss-angry?

Anonymous said...

I see you didn’t print my retort to “Rod Knox”. Interesting that you will print all the garbage that derogatory of LEOs by his ilk but when a real cop pushes back, you filter. I now get it.

Kingfish said...

Well, when the first word in your comments is "shithead" , I probably won't approve it.

Rod Knox said...

Every time this issue comes up I am reminded of Chris Hughes whose long, highly decorated career as an MHP came to an end when one of his victims hired a good lawyer. Once faced with a victim and her lawyer the officer rushed to plead guilty but what about the dozens of charges made against him over the years that were ignored because the victim couldn't afford a good lawyer?

And all these tough talking officers are wimps when it comes to cleaning up the dirty officers they work with if they aren't dirty themselves of course. A badge has become a license to kill in many states and some of the most unqualified people rush to get a badge and a gun for all the wrong reasons.

My primary issue with cops is this - Why do good cops not eradicate the bad cops in their midst? I am not talking about questionable matters amongst cops, but full blown dirty cops. It only appears that dirty cops are only protecting and serving a certain sector of their "communities", while endangering the lives of good cops who are doing the job the right way.

4:18, I was a state LEO in Mississippi for about 8 years and got hired by a federal agency; the answer to your question is easy - the bad cops are usually connected to and protected by internal and external political figures who pressure agency leadership not to embarrass them by exposing unethical or illegal behavior.

Bad cops ruin it for those of us who signed up to do the job honestly and, as idealistic as it sounds, serve our country here at home and make a difference in our community.

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.
