Dispatch from Pelahatchie (Drama Edition)

Update (1:15 PM): Former Town Clerk Tommy Lyle tells police he placed the twine on the door 6 months ago during cleanup.


Did a hate crime take place in Pelahatchie? The Mayor seems to think so.  Mayor Ryshonda Beechem posted this photo and message on Facebook:





Uh-oh.  Naturally, the Facebook crowd got fired up and made some rather um, colorful comments. However, the Kingfish did some digging.  Apparently Town Clerk Tommy Lyles was cleaning out a closet several months ago.  The "rope" is twine used to hang banners.  He placed it up there and never removed it.  The "rope" has been there for several months and was just now noticed? Hmmm.......

She's a drama queen. Her sole goal is to stir up drama. I wouldn't be surprised if her and her attorney placed it there just to stir up stuff. That's been their goal the whole time this fiasco has taken place.

KF, did you know she was in court a week or so ago for unauthorized use of someone else's credit card? Or that her husband was arrested for a DUI. The Beechums think they are above the law.

Oh noes!!!!! Such hate! Call Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson!

Is this what our society has come to? According to this story https://www.wsj.com/articles/hate-crime-hoaxes-are-more-common-than-you-think-11561503352 fewer than 30% of hate crime allegations are proven genuine.

Too much time on her hands. Immature, no place for Facebook! I’m a 65 year old black retired veteran, what has the world come too. Let’s stop the nonsense and quit posting on social media children!
In need of attention, too many kids in your community need it. I’m praying.

Wonder if it's the same group doing this that did the noose's in Jackson a while back. You know, the ones that have never been solved and seemed to disappear from news coverage after a while. All this ruse is stirring the racial pot and a whole lot of "look at me".

She is so dramatic. There are cameras that she had installed in city hall. It was the topic of one of the town meetings that went live on FB. She also just had a judgement entered against her for $2,700.00 for using someone’s credit card without permission. She’s just trying to take focus off the fact that she’s a thief! She stole from someone. If she would steal from an individual you can bet she would steal from the town.

mmmm... this whole time I've been under the impression that it was the peckerwoods giving her trouble but this makes me seriously question my position on who is stirring up trouble. She should have at least tied it into a noose before taking the pic.....

Kingfish thanks for posting what really happened here. The Mayor is just trying to stir things up to keep the heat off if her. She was in court last week for using a friends credit card and not paying it back. She plead guilty and has to make payments for the next six weeks. Bet she gets some church probably in Brandon to bail her out again. Husband gets a DUI ticket and she trys to tell the cop that she was driving. Kingfish check on her address now. Where is she living. Pelahathie might be the only town that allows their mayor to live in Jackson or Clinton to be Mayor.

Lastly Mayor if you can't pay your bills get a job. You are an accountant?

She is the worst person to ever represent Pelahatchie in the history of Pelahatchie if her actions so far haven't proven it, tonight's Board meeting will.
Be ashamed Ryshonda

This is really sad for all the comments posted concerning this, this lady has been under attack every since she has been in that office. Before anyone speak out of hatred ask yourself would it be different if it was your family under all the drama that’s going on? Also would it be different if another candidate won instead of her? Have watched many of the meetings and wondering what effect they have on the town because that’s who suffering, she seem to be concerned about the town but can’t go forward because it is more personal than anything. It is so out of content to put her and her family through what they are going through because the truth be told no one has a squeaky clean history or background but her’s seems to be the only one that is in the spotlight one thing for sure we all have to answer to a higher power and with that being said just be ready.

There's an Okey-Dokey sign in the ball of twine. Just another example of the white power structure trying to undermine the mayor's attempts to make Pelahatchie a shining star in Mississippi. There is so much racism in that ball of twine and it is representative of the sad history of our state. Smdh.

What is the comment about Tommy Lyle(not Lyles) about? He was cleaning out a closet a couple of months ago? Is this a jab at him? WTF does cleaning out a closet a few months ago and a wad of string on a door hanger on June 28th(months later) have to do with the price of rice in China? That's like saying I was target practicing with my rifle a few months ago and someone died of a gunshot wound today(month down the road).

When she first took office I was behind her 100%. But now all she wants to do is stir up hatred. I have never seen one person spew so much hate towards white people. If anyone is a racist it is her. She goes on social media just to spew her hatred and stir things up. How can you call yourself a Christian and hate so much??? Ummmmm?

Has Beecham paid the judgment that was entered against her in the Rankin County Justice Court about 2 weeks ago?

I wonder just how many of you sick bigots have family history of white males lynching a relative?

Until you knoww the pain of having a great uncle lynched for looking a white man directly in the eyes, or of allowing a gaze to linger a little too long on a passing white woman, you need to shut your racist mouth and go spend a day at the civil rights museum.

@12:59 the only dignified response you deserve is that there is an entire Mississippi Civil Rights museum you need to visit.

This board and mayor are made for each other. Equal incompetence and racism that balance each other out. Of course there's more of them that there is of her, but it seems to be a balance.

3:49, Do you realize that the Board is not made up solely of white people & that the all of the members of the board are generally in agreement? Mrs. Beecham has had several disagreements with African American Board members & their family members. Is that racism?

It’s time for her to step down as mayor! She has done nothing but destroy our town. She doesn’t even live in Pelahatchie!!! I used to be for her and felt sorry for her... but this is just way over the top for me. Leave Ryshonda you have done enough!!!

The reason the board keeps blocking her ludacris ideas is because she has absolutely no idea how to be a mayor. Mayors actually have very little say in what goes on in a town. It’s all ran by the board. They aren’t being racist they are trying to run the town properly. Furthermore, the reason they voted to decrease her pay to $250.00 a month is b/c the town is broke! They are having to pay out for numerous legal proceedings due to her! This has nothing to do with the color of her skin. It’s the fact that she has no clue how to legally run the town. She has single handily ruined a beautiful little town. I’m not saying she’s a bad person or that she’s even stupid. She’s just in a position that she has no clue how to do. The town has had several attorneys b/c she can’t get along with any of them. She claims that anyone who is white that doesn’t agree with her is racist. Racism is not an issue to be taken lightly. You don’t go around proclaiming it constantly when that’s not the case. It undermines those who have and are truly experiencing it. If she truly loves the town as much as she says she does then she needs to do the right thing and resign. Let someone who knows what they are doing come in and try to fix the mess she has created. It doesn’t matter what color someone’s skin is. This is 2019. We have to leave the past behind in order to move ahead. She has played the victim card one too many times. She’s not the victim here- the good taxpayers of this beautiful town are.

Why are all three local TV stations still reporting this as a racial hate event and not reporting that the Pelahatchie Police Chief says it is not? Could they be thrilled that the mayor (not capitalized for a reason) is saying it is a hate crime?

So, somebody cleaning up six months ago hangs a wad of good twine on a coat hook and six months later it brings back memories of great uncles being hung 90 years ago for looking at a white woman? I'm trying real hard to understand that connection.

Oh...1:49 - Sorry you can't figure what one has to do with the other, but, let me help: Lyles said he found the perfectly good twine in a closet six months ago and hung it on the coat hook on the door instead of throwing it away. It didn't have (then or now) a damned thing to do with rope or lynching or racism.

But, let's all gather at the civil rights museum. Bring a sack lunch.

They literally displayed the tool of murderous racist lynching to terrify and humiliate her. It isn't playing the race card to defend her. It is what they actually did to her. And when the local media reported it you all came to the defense of the racists.

Stay classy, Mississippi.

Actually she is lieing as she has been since her election. Trying to gain sympathy by playing the victim and she has victimized the town and it’s poor people on a personal vendetta. I came to realize some while ago that she is keeping this mess going no one but her . She points her fingers and bashed everyone and when they respond she acts like it’s the end of the world. The rope has been there for quite a while and she knows that but in wake of her personal mishaps unfolding she is trying to divert attention from her to others. Now none of this is ok but my question all is, how would you feel if you were on the other end of her wrath and lies. She committed identity theft, vandalized a building used someone credit without permission among other things and these things were done to Black people who are afraid to speak out for fear that they will be ostracized by their own race for publicing admitting that she is rotten. Way too long have we allowed this to go on because we want to uphold her blackness. Wrong is wrong. Call it what is is. Now she blames the board for her media attention but she put the media in this not them. She blames the board for her personal business being air but she committed the crimes not the board. Look at the facts and stop judging on personal emotions and hate. You all know the truth but do you want to accept it

The Chief has released the results of the investigation by the police department. The string ( It was a cord used to suspend a banner was not a rope) was put there about 6 months ago. Ryshonda will want to fire the Chief now for not going along with her bull$hit. She absolutely loves playing to the news media with her made up racist crap and the media eats it up.

6:23, obviously you did NOT read my post very closely. It says that the Board is NOT made up solely of white people. The post also goes on to say that the mayor has had disagreements with the African American Board members. So, in answer to your question, yes, I did realize that Board is not made up of just white people.

Ryshonda (Mayor HAHA) only won by 8 votes and came in like Hitler on the Jews. I’m going to call her a angry black female because that’s exactly what she is. Half started businesses that all fail before they begin tells what kind of person she is and she’s supposed to be Mayor?? lol Has everyone opened their eyes now to see she’s the one causing all the drama. All of city hall employees have quit twice! Two police chiefs have resigned. Town attorneys have resigned 4 times! That’s never happened in the history of the town!!! One person caused all of that. Ryshonda Beechem is that person. It’s 100% her fault the town has went to crap! Two more years and we can finally send her back to Jackson to live where she really belongs. Please run for Mayor again Ryshonda so the residents of Pelahatchie can kick your ass to the curb. How’s your husband doing after his recent DUI? How about yourself since you were caught using your “friends” credit card without permission? Two years and BYE BYE!!! It’s just plain funny you’re standing by your “rope” racial Facebook post? Just so you know, you’re Nation of Islam is being watched as they stand guard. We are not intimidated!

Why don't you investigate the $ 20,000 check that the mayor wrote from the special fire fund account and what was paid with that money?

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.
