Deputy Fights for His Life

Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker issued the following statement.

On behalf of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, thank you very much for your prayers, thoughts, emails and offers to help in any way possible. We are so very proud to work in Madison County where we are supported neighborhood by neighborhood. Your support means a great deal to law enforcement and we are a grateful family.

As you know, yesterday was a tough day for the County, law enforcement, families and friends due to two of our deputies being shot? One deputy is still in critical condition following surgery late yesterday and the other deputy was treated and released yesterday.

Once again, thank you for your prayers--that is really what we can all do right now.

Kingfish note: Deputy Brad Sullivan remains in critical condition at UMC.


Board of the First Responders of Mississippi is raising money for Sullivan. Pledge support by texting the word “BRAD” to 601-956-2877.

The shooter was Edgar Egbert.  He and his wife divorced.  The divorce petition was filed in 2016.  His now ex-wife cited several reasons for filing the petition:

a.         habitual cruel and inhuman treatment;
b.         habitual and excessive use of opium, morphine, or other like drug;
c.         habitual drunkenness

This is so tragic. Prayers for the deputy who was shot, the other deputy who was injured and all others on the force. Glad the shooter is in custody.

Anyone who is convicted of shooting an LEO should get automatic death penalty. Period.

I don't know Deputy Sullivan, but I know our donations will help his family. They need and deserve our support.

Anyone want to argue that a red flag law wouldn't be useful here? The wife might not have reported it, true, but if she had we wouldn't be looking at an officer in the ICU and a man being punished for something he'll probably both regret and sit in jail for, for many years.

So three years later and she still hasn't been granted a divorce. Something is wrong.

Not trying to speak for all gun owners, but as one for more than 50 years I would say that many would have no problem with red flag laws IF they were done in the correct way. For example a hearing before a judge in which the gun owner has a chance to put on a defense. Remember the right to own a gun is stated in the Constitution as strongly as is the right to free speech, religion, and the right to vote, and any rule allowing confiscation of guns must have a strong due process system attached...in other words law enforcement must have a court order before confiscating any firearms.

Possibly if it would help we as taxpayer should want officers in patrol cars with bullet proof glass. Instead of the many pointing fingers about training think about your souse, yourself, children or any family member waking up with no eye site, unable to walk and the many other disabilities that can come out of these situations. Now add alcohol and other addictions & health issues the public has come to say officers should be better trained. That is no excuse and a bypass of blaming the suspect who made a choice that day to leave Jesus ar home. With 911 fast approaching we should all donate to Lt. Sullivan’s fund as a thank you. Please post an address where we can mail donations too for those that don’t use PayPal. May God Bless each and every LEO & their families.

Smuggling is common in jails. Smuggle a piece of rope to this dude!

4:12 Yep. even in Madison County. Damn divorce courts here don't use common sense. Judges are in bed with certain lawyers.

Donations can also be made at any BankPlus branch to Brad. All you have to do is go in and tell them you want to donate to The Bradley Sullivan fund.

I just had to go through 7 different captcha screens to post about donating to Brad at BankPlus....that is rediculous

Why did the ClarionLedger remove their copy of the petition for divorce from their story? It was there, now removed. Seems odd.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
