Wife-Beatin'? Firm but Fair Strikes Again.

This post is a re-post from 2017. 

Wife-beatin' apparently is a-ok in Jackson.  Jackson Municipal Court Judge Ali Shamsid-Deen didn't fine nor imprison one David L. Archie for domestic violence. Jackson police arrested Mr. Archie for domestic violence on September 7, 2016.  His wife contacted JPD on September 3.  The report states:

Officer Juliana Chisholm IBM 1789 met the complainant in the driveway of her home. The complainant gave the officer a statement she had already typed, dated and signed. The complainant stated the incident happened when she walked into the house after returning from a party on S

September 2, 2016 at 1145 hours. She stated the suspect jumped up yelling at her about a photo that was sent to his phone. The complainant stated the suspect refused to show her the photo and then the suspect wanted to see her phone. The complainant stated she told the suspect no and he began to punch her multiple times. The complainant attempted  to get her phone  from her purse and the suspect put her in a choke hold. The officer observed heavy bruising scratches and red markings just behind her left shoulder. The complainant did not want AMR and the children were at home but asleep in bed. The complainant said she waited until the suspect went to work and then she went to signs charges on him. She didn't know she had to have a case number.
He was arrested on September 7:

Mr. Archie was booked but Judge Shamsid-deen released him without requiring a bond. The case went to Judge Shamsid-deen a month later.  The Judge Shamsid-deen did not fine nor imprison Mr. Archie but did order him and his wife to participate in family counseling.  The court abstract is posted below.

Kingfish note: This case is a perfect example of why Mississippi is a horrible place for victims of domestic violence.  Mrs. Archie comes home, suffers the abuse, and calls the police.   It takes courage for a woman to do that because she has to live with the abuser, he controls the finances, you know the drill.  This woman comes to the criminal justice system for help.  The police did its job. Then Judge Shamsid-dunce gets his hands on the case.  The abuser is turned loose- he doesn't even have to post a bond.  Call it a Get Out of Jail Free Phone Call.  Mr. Firm But Fair then convicts him of a misdemeanor but imposes no fine or incarceration on Mr. Archie.  Of course, this is the same judge who gave a $50,000 bond to Deryl Dedmon after he killed James Anderson.

Firm but fair indeed.

One of the biggest problems people have today is that they have all come un-slapped and don't show know how to show anyone respect. It only takes a second to remind them. Of course they immediately call the police. But the police can't un-knock you out. Don't square up if you can't throw down. And if you do decide to test your might then don't be a bitch and call the cops just because you couldn't measure up.

That includes women. They demanded equality. Chivalry is dead.

David Archie is a worthless human being. His family will tell you the same thing. Wasn't he also arrested in canton a few yrs ago.

She's not the one who might be a Hinds County Supervisor next week. Ole Ali might be a clown judge but he ain't stupid.

How ignorant! Family counseling is contraindicated in cases of partner violence. This is an issue of power and control by the abuser, NOT a relational issue. We have known this for years! That’s why anger management classes don’t work for abusers. I would have incorrectly assumed that a judge would be informed about the dynamics of partner violence if he/she is passing judgement in these cases. How ignorant!

First of all “JJ”, referring to the man as wife beating is very offensive to WOMEN who have been subjected to DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, so please reference him to another name other than offending women in general by calling him that! I don’t care for this man but I do care when you “JJ” insist on on a nick name as wife beater! Consider how all women feel, Hell” we, don’t wanna hear the word!! It’s like saying the word “ RAPIST” ! Do you understand!

7:40- Its people like you that make other not want to have discussions about social or criminal issues. You are a sad clown. Chill out.

I appeared before Judge Shamsid-Deen once, as a favor to a friend. I got the distinct impression he does NOT like white people.

A misdemeanor or felony DV conviction is a disqualifier for purchasing a firearm. The judge has allowed a criminal to not only escaped with no punishment but also to remain able to purchase firearms at any gun store.

So, this is the guy who Stokes and Bennie are trying to get on the board of supervisors because they are jealous of Darrel McQuirter? And people might actually vote for this criminal? Dear lord.

@7:40 PM - Please get back on your meds.

Anyone who has ever listened to this man knows he is not able to serve as County Supervisor. His statements are incoherent in simple forums. If our honorable congressman and Stokes want him, he must be controllable by them. Sheese....... Can't Hinds County overcome Bennie and Kenny? David Archie needs mental help for many reasons, not the least of which is domestic violence. I pity his wife and family and I pity anywhere he may be elected.

When we know better, we do better! We cannot continue to allow our so called leaders to influence our votes via a fish fry or a speech on what the white man is doing or not doing. We must look at what we are doing to improve ourselves and the area we live. If we continue to live in the past we stay in the past. Look around and vote you conscience. Don’t let a piece of fish influence your vote!

Chivalry did not have to die with feminism. Feminism is about meritocracy which is no more than a level playing field for competition. If I can do a job as well as a man, I want to be considered and paid equally for that. If I can't do it, fine.

I want to be in charge of making decisions for myself just like you get to do. I am perfectly capable of getting expert advice and spiritual guidance without strangers who don't know me deciding for me.

Those goals do not require me to abandoned good manners or to be discourteous or lose my temper over nothing. I open doors when I get there first and am polite to all people. I pick my battles.

By the way, for capitalism to work as intended, it requires a level playing field where competition thrives and the most capable and innovative win.

Domestic violence wouldn't exist if males who have only brawn in their favor didn't continue to insist that women are less capable in every way.

7:40 pm As a woman, I understand that what your objection to " wife beater" is based on the culturally supported idea that a wife must be submissive to and obey her husband no matter how idiotic whatever he wants to do might be. This man is a violent abuser as is anyone who attempts to dominate others through physical violence when alternatives exist.

You lose me on rape. Rape is rape and males can be and are raped by other males. While it is more rare, a woman can use objects to rape a male. Female predators as well as male predators can use grooming and seduction.

I would kindly suggest that you aren't helping bring about change. No one changes their minds when angrily confronted and/or insulted. They simply gain support from those who already agree.

I would say to every man, if someone is better at a skill than you are, shouldn't you let them do it? In those areas that require physical size and strength, if I have more than you ( and some women do) shouldn't I be allowed to compete? Don't you want the best to win and the game to be fair? Do you really feel proud of who you are if the system is rigged? Do you want someone less skilled than you are in charge of your life?

The love of my life is brilliant at many things, but I can paint a wall and do wood work and repairs and know more about cars. My Dad taught me, his didn't teach him. He's smart enough to let me and I'm smart enough to let him help me and I'll help him.

Come on guys, you know it's not smart to have the least capable person do anything. Please just think this through people in a larger context that one event.

should he be elected he will vote for the county will sell bonds to build a new jail so that all of Bennie's people can get contracts for the construction and of course there will be kickbacks too.

The reason people like Malcolm Johnson and Toni Johnson and David Archie are on the ballot is because the Jackson crew (Bennie, Lumumba and Stokes) are jealous of all the credit the supervisors are getting for paving roads and things like the continental plant. Jealous!!

Anonymous said...

@9:19, But how well can you take a right hook? Would you need a man to defend you? Perhaps you would require the help of the police or the state? What if that police state disappeared tomorrow, would feminism survive?

Did this incident take place in 2016 and is just now being heard/ruled on in 2019? How does the victim of a violent crime hold out for justice for three years???

I was surprised when I was told my simple assault case in The City of Madison may take from 6 months to over a year to ever come before a judge...

Is this long wait for justice normal in MS? This is all new to me....

Wow, there are some real philosophers on here doing their best to dilute the message....which is that Jackson's so-called "leaders" are gunning for McQuirter and McGowan because neither is from Jackson and they are making the Jackson political class look bad with the progress they have made.

There's nothing in Jackson left for Socrates to plunder, so look out Hinds County. Socrates and his cronies are coming for your board.

Read the post. Start at the beginning. Actually read it.

Malcolm Johnson is bragging on the Hinds County Stump FB page that "Big Feet Media" has endorsed him and David Archie. All of 19 people follow Big Feet Media. HAHA.

Can't believe people fall for such junk. Hopefully they won't.

11:04, there was a video post several days ago of a brawl in the street. The skinny girl in the white dress took a clean shot to the mouth/chin and she didn't budge, all while her man got thumped by windmills and he could barely stand up. You may want to re-examine your assumptions.

Any man who physically beats up his wife is a "wife-beater," by definition. If the allegations are true, David Archie is a wife-beater. Any man who physically beats a woman who is not his wife is a woman-beater, by definition. These are pejorative terms that I use to let people know what I think about that.

Has anyone noticed the commercials for those running for judgeship? Very few, if any, advertise the candidate being tough on crime, applying the law fairly and impartially. Most everyone is against "mass incarceration", and for more rehabilitation programs. Why? Because so many of their constituents are in jail or soon will be. It used to be that a strong deterrent to committing crime was the shame it would bring to you and your family. These days so much of our society is prone toward lawlessness that the new attitude is that our laws are too tough and if you do go to jail we need to make it as easy on you as possible.

11:04 , 9:19 here.
My father also taught me to defend myself and how to be physically fit. I don't run like girl, throw like a girl or hit like a girl.
At 5'4" and 103 lbs, I defended myself from a would be rapist who was 6'2" and weighed over 200 lbs. You guys have vulnerable spots.
Like you, I'm subject to ambush but if I'm with a man who is ambushed, I won't be wringing my hands on the sidelines.
Unlike you, I use my a brain I as well .

Turned on the radio to the Kim Wade show a few years back and I heard this David Archie saying , "All these low down dirty white folks". I thought to myself wow,!!

As soon as you mention David Archie most people stop listening. He's a gas bad and anyone that knows him will tell you he's a waste of space.

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.
