Oh hell kingfish,
I get my nails done all the time at this location and 1 person gets beat up and we act like the sky is falling. I am angry it happened and I sure hope the victim is ok. This happened at northpark long ago and no one there seemed to take any measures to prevent that again. I wonder what the CCTV security cameras show?

Under Tate’s new law there is zero liability for the premises owner.

The owner can fire all security (seems that’s done) and not face any civil liability.

You better show up armed to the hilt to shopping centers.... no security means more robberies and rapes.

Crime has a new home in Tate world.....

I am a independent voter but these Republican establishment candidates are the worst. Mississippi will have tater tot unfortunately for there leadership and this will be the new normal everywhere under him. It's solely to protect the business owner rather than those individuals on the premises.

Shoppers at Highland Village can fight back or give in to the criminals. Where can I purchase a bullet-proof vest?

I’m armed every time I shop anywhere in Jackson.

Just because you own a piece of real estate should not mean you're responsible for the actions of others.

Bums begging for money across the street from Highland Village. Sounds like a nice place to visit. Not!!!

Anonymous said...

I’ll shop there even more now.

This happens frequently in the surrounding suburbs.

Or we have elected officials who do it and no one cares.

Classy Mississippi.

How is this Tate’s fault? I’m at HV several times a week and there is always security roaming the parking lots on a golf cart.

Tate may have legislatively gutted premises liability with his landlord protection bill, but he made up for it by raising the thresholds for felony offenses so local governments would be forced to warehouse more criminals instead of sending them to the state. Stroke of genius for Tate and more money for personal driveways-n-shit.

Majority of the elected officials in Mississippi are worthless. Also, unless your buying a 1,200 dollar pair of shoes you don't need to go to highland village. Maybe unless you want to have conversation with some typical NE Jackson snot nose about there Oxford condo or beach house with there 3 kids in private schools. Or you could talk about there weekend golf or tennis game while a maid cleans there house in Eastover eastparke or Meadowbrook highlands in NE Jackson neighborhoods.

I don't get the "restaurant behind Whole Foods" reference. There is nothing directly behind Whole Foods. Are you talking about Aplos, Kingfish?

@6:30 Hello Mr Plaintiff Attorney I'm so sorry that you will now have to produce something of value to make a living like the rest of us instead of just be a parasite on the business owners in jackson whom you love to blame for the crime as if it is our fault. We know why you really did it - because you got half the money. What kind of shape is your back in? I would suggest maybe you could start flipping burgers or be a garbage man? Anywho have a good life you blood sucking piece of shit! Oh and I hope for your sake you didn't spend all that money as you made it as I have a feeling it's gonna be a *little* harder to make it from here on!

This won't slow the steady stream of Madison McMansion dwellers from trying to act fancy by shopping at the Whole Foods.

Even if there was a security guard on sight does not mean this can’t happen.
Been many many cases documented over many decades when a guard was on
the opposite side of a property when someone got mugged on other side.

honestly, this sounds like it wasn't random. and yes, we get the leaders we elect. too bad we get stuck looking at the R or D beside the name instead of the actual name and what they stand for..

Hey 8:01 AM:

Do you have something against possessive pronouns? Next time you want to bash people that are different than you, check your grammar. Your point is overshadowed by your apparent inability to grasp the difference between "there" and "their."

Aplos maybe? They have some pretty lazy employees.

Y'all really think an old Barney Fife in a golf cart is a deterrent to crime? And the constantly flashing blue light lets the criminals always know where they are. Put snipers on the roofs.

@ 8:20 Get your facts straight. Madison McMansion dwellers go to Fresh Market.

Jed Clampett CCJ said...

Madison types? Hell, sweetie, they placed WF square in the middle of Northeast Jerkson's pretentious, Johnny come lately conformists. The ones starting to wear Lulemon and eager to hand over extra cash for out of season seconds as they aspire to the Upper East Side.

Come on. Do better. The Richer Hicks Club is expecting more from you hillbillies thinking they are Hollywood. And, BTW, the number of "McMansions" along Eastover and Meadowbrook is considerable. Although dated. 1850s people in 1970s houses. Keep up.

No one thinks WF is fancy. Just stupid. And, pretentious. Like a leased black Range Rover. Think, the Grove South. Hicks in haute couture and high prices. Nouveau riche. You. Or, probably, you as an aspirant.

This beating is going to be a boom for real estate agents. The house near HV will be sold at a bargain price. Like it's been said a million time Get the Hell Outta Jackson! BTW- Beginning to see many black folks @ the Flowood & Pearl Kroger & Walmart. They are ahead of the curve!

I figured that this was the location as all the news reports I heard only said it was in parking lot in Northeast Jackson. I wonder who is so concerned that the location not be identified. City?developet, news outlets due to ad revenue? Kingfish is the only place that I have seen who told the facts.

The liability comments are way out of line for those of you who don't know about business. For you people not in the insurance industry, how would you like someone chasing a person into your yard and shooting them and the injured person sued you? That HAS happened to a business and homeowner, what is your responsibility? Guess how they sued? Based on the fact that you did not provide a safe environment. We have another legal climate issue developing and your bills, just like on auto insurance are beginning to reflect it. You can only do so much but it is very unfair to the property owner if someone gets out of an auto and beats the crap out of someone and you become liable.

Highland village would not survive if it weren't from people outside of 39232 & 39208. #facts

Anonymous said...

I live in 39211... highland village survives thanks to NE Jackson house wives and there tennis groups shopping all day and then eating at broad street across the street. Then drive home to JCC or Eastover Meadowbrook highlands etc...

Anonymous said...

It survives because families that have a condo or a beach house live in NE Jackson and the wives are bored and spend the husbands money or many of them have family money really. Also the CSprire family lives there many Sanderson farm family plus many others plus physicians wives live and shop in NE Jackson as well.

Madison people never fail to show up and show out. Kingfish, your site continues to be the place where old, white, miserable Madison men can sit behind their computers and spew negativity and false narratives. Meanwhile, I can't wait to hit up Whole Foods this afternoon before I head home to feed my family in my Northeast Jackson house. Seriously, their jealously is starting to ooze through my computer.

And the millenials are leaving MS in droves. Who will be left to buy all these supersized houses in Jackson and most of the rest of MS?

The only restaurant I can think of that is on the back side of Highland Village is Bravo's.

Micah Gober said...

Hey the roads are paved in Madison, and the water is drinkable too. Oh I live out side the gates so I'm a poor, evil, white boy who thinks Whole foods are for people who waste their money on over priced food that I can find at a Piggy Wiggly, or a Kroger. I guess Whole Food didn't save Jackson.

Your right about the roads and the water for the most part. These people near highland village look down on us because we send our kids to public schools in the burbs and rent a beach house rather than own one and we don't have large gates or full time guards at entrances of our neighborhoods. I do high end spraying of landscape and trees so I make my living off these people in these,areas but I can tell they seem to look down on me like I'm the help. Oh well.

What’s with the war between Jackson and Madison. You’re all living in a state that takes more from the federal government than it gives soshut up about who’s better because nobody wins in that state.

I can't remember a comment thread on JJ with this many run-on sentences in the comment thread.

Must be an intern at the JFP.

I didn't know the JFP was still in circulation.

... or full time guards at entrances of our neighborhoods.

The presence of full-time guards at the entrances to Jackson neighborhoods is nowhere near as pervasive as you allude it to be. Stop the hyperbole and do something about that chip on your shoulder.

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.
