Gas Station Robber Gets 20 Years

Rankin-Madison District Attorney John Bramlett issued the following statement.


Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney John K. Bramlett, Jr., announced today that 51-year-old Dion Lamont Summers, of Wisconsin, was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the armed robbery of a gas station in Rankin County. Five years of his sentence have been suspended.

On November 13, 2017, the Richland Police Department was dispatched after a customer witnessed the armed robbery of a gas station. He provided dispatch with a description of the assailant, the clothes he was wearing and a description of the vehicle he was driving.

In route to the gas station, officers observed the vehicle that was described and turned on their lights and sirens for Summers to pullover. However, he accelerated to speeds close to 100 miles per hour and a chase ensued. Other Rankin County law enforcement officials were notified as Summers was crossing into other towns and cities. Summers lost control of the vehicle which then struck a curb, a red light pole, then another curb and a street light pole before coming to a rest in a ditch.

Officers approached the vehicle, with their service weapons in hand, and ordered Summers to exit the vehicle. Summers declined to do so forcing officers to assist him out of the car. While exiting the car Summers began fighting with law enforcement. He bit one officer on his hand and attempted to bite others before officers were able to safely handcuff him.

Summers admitted to the robbery, the gun used during the robbery was found in the car he was driving and the clothes he was wearing matched the description the witness provided. Officers also found money in the car.


District Attorney John K. Bramlett, Jr. stated, “Summers is a very dangerous criminal who ran from law enforcement officers at high speeds, injured one of our officers and robbed a gas station clerk at gunpoint. He deserves every minute of his sentence in prison.”

Bramlett added, “Summers’ arrest is an outstanding example of how law enforcement place themselves in harm’s way daily to protect and serve. The Richland Police Department did an exceptional job and their efforts do not go unnoticed by this office. We are thankful for their commitment to our citizens.”


Kingfish note: Summers will probably qualify for 50% treatment.

"District Attorney John K.

He deserves every minute of his sentence in prison.” So what happened to the remaining 2,000,000+ minutes. Good behavior?

It's a blessing, but not for the perp.

Yo Hinds County jackwagons, you may want to save this article to see how justice is supposed to be served!

That's over $600k (not including inflation and cost increases) that we taxpayers are stuck with to keep his worthless ass locked up for 20 years. Put em in tents and feed them MREs. If it's ok to require troops to live like that, why should criminals e treated any better?

Predators hunt where the picking off is easiest. High speed chases get lots of attention as they are so dangerous to us, the regular folks on the road. Agree from reading JJ there is a disparity in bonds and sentencing with Hinds and Rankin County, but he would be a criminal regardless of county lines on a map. Thankful the the store employee and others were not killed or maimed.
Good job on getting him out the vehicle, methinks with the rush of a chase would be tempting to pull the trigger.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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. 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.
