Life for Accused Coin Shop Killer

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

Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney John K. Bramlett, Jr., announced that Joshua Garcia pled guilty, July 30, 2019, mid-trial, to attempted escape as a violent habitual offender. Yesterday, August 5, 2019, Garcia was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of early release or parole.

Garcia is also currently charged with the homicide of three employees of a Jackson pawnshop that occurred in December 2016. He fled the Jackson area after the murders and was located by US Marshals in Kansas and placed in the Leavenworth Correctional Facility. There, guards found a handcuff key located in Garcia’s rectum.

He was then returned back to the Jackson Metro area where he was housed as a federal inmate at the Madison County Detention Center. On July 1, 2017, a detention officer at the Madison County Detention Center observed Garcia attempting to climb through the razor wire at the top of the recreation yard inside the jail. Garcia was unable to get through the wire and quickly taken back into custody by officers. Garcia had torn the sheets from his bed and tied his jail issued flip flops to his feet. He had also padded his socks with strips of his jumpsuit and placed them on his hands in his attempt to get through the razor wire. He was indicted by a Madison County grand jury for attempted escape as a violent habitual offender.

July 30, 2019, after the State rested their case-in-chief, Garcia opted to plead guilty as a violent habitual offender. A violent habitual offender is someone who has been convicted at least two times previously to a felony offense, served more than one year on each offense, and one of those prior felonies is a crime of violence. The Court sentenced Garcia Monday, August 5, 2019, to life in prison without the possibility of early release or parole.

He still has to face the three murder charges through the U.S. Attorney’s Office where there is a possibility he will face the death penalty.

Bramlett stated “Joshua Garcia is a very dangerous person. He is accused of killing three innocent people in Jackson, evaded law enforcement after the murders, attempted to escape in Leavenworth, and then tried to escape from the Madison County Detention Center. Thankfully our detention officers are well trained and were able to stop him from escaping. He will now spend the rest of his life in prison.”

Bullet in head is a lot cheaper than him sucking up food and ac for the rest of his life.

@1:00, so is letting him go free. How about we follow the laws instead?

When is she up for re election?

I suspect this scumbag will attempt murder in prison, or perhaps attempt to escape. Maybe that's when the bullet will find him. He is a dangerous animal. And for ever one they put in jail there are 5 more on the streets searching for prey. Protect your loved ones.

He seems nice.

He's already attempted to escape, this is why he is now facing life without parole.

Really, KF? You let an inane comment like “He seems nice” grace your comments? Maybe you should do as the New Yorker did, and publish “The Rejection Collection,” featuring cartoons that were too awful (or delightfully un-PC) to be printed. Another good book was put out by the National Lampoon publishers, called “Cartoons Even WE Wouldn’t Print.” Excellent stuff. I imagine the comments you prissily reject would make far better reading than the utter dreck you do let through your golden portals. Oh, Mr. Fussypants, come on and let racists have their little free-speech fun, too!

Life for attempting to escape? What about the three who are resting in their graves? Why is this fucker still alive?

Anonymous said...

Oh...sorry; He still has to be tried, eventually, for the murders, at which time he will be sentenced to three concurrently served life sentences. He will never fry, which should be his fate. This is why our system of justice has no element of deterrence.

Sorry 3:39 hes not going to approve the N word for your gratification. But you are free to say it in public if you want to swallow your teeth. Go ahead, we will watch.

He'll find a number of proctologists in the big house ready to search him for contraband.

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.
