Help Deputy Sullivan

Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker issued the following statement: 

Anyone wishing to donate to our Deputy, can do so by going by any Bank Plus location and donate in the name of Bradley Sullivan. Deputy Sullivan has a long road to recovery and needs our prayers and support! I can not say enough about the outpouring of support we have received. Together we will overcome adversity and prosper! God Bless you all!

As a tax payer and resident of Madison County, I beg the Sheriff to keep this man employed until he gets full retirement unless medical retirement is just as good. I do not believe anyone in this county would object to such a thing.

I second 3:52's comment. It's crazy to me that anyone in this line of work would need to depend on fundraising. The guy who shot him will have free medical care, food and housing for life. At the very least, Deputy Sullivan should have the same. He should also get every dime the shooter was worth.

I agree. We own a business and a home in Madison. It’s the right thing to do. Praying for this man and his family, as well as the other officer that was shot.

I can’t understand why in a republican led state with a governor that started his career as a sheriff deputy, that law enforcement would not have more protection in these instances. Anytime law enforcement is injured in the life of duty, they should get their full salary until retirements kicks in. If they die in the line of duty, their spouse should continue to draw their salary or receive a substantial insurance payout. Additionally any medical expenses incurred by a first responder as a result of their work should be paid in full by State if it’s not covered by insurance. Simply the right thing to do.

Don't they have insurance, and workman's Comp. I feel bad for the guy, but it I got shot at my Job...will you passed the hat. I work in a C-Store. Fortunately I have only been robbed twice in five years, but each time I wondered if I would make it home.

You people must not be familiar with Workers' Compensation. His medical expenses are and will be covered by Comp for as long as he lives. Comp over-rides any insurance program in Mississippi, including the coverage of state, municipal and county employees. Additionally, if he is ruled to be disabled (later) he will be retired on SS as if he had fully retired. His PERS account is his and his survivors.

Non-governmental first responders are covered by the same Comp laws. This applies to ambulance personnel, for example, with private company coverage. Comp over-rides.

The same people who bitch about the PERS program are now suggesting that a spouse continue to receive salary and retirement benefits for the rest of her life. Why limit that to first responders? What about highway workers, front line service employees serving the public, workers in municipal water departments and tax collectors offices - any and all of them are candidates to be shot or injured in the line of duty. Non-LEO government workers are shot or assaulted across this country every day.

Doesn't the W/C wage and salary replacement end after just 8 years in Mississippi?

Then I would guess ObamaCare would kick in.

Actually it's 8.65 years. Here's a link to basic Q&A but there are comp attorneys out there who should be contacted for further information. The main point here is that there will be ZERO medical expenses that he or his family are responsible for. Of course medical expense is the least of concerns at the moment.

note: I'm not Jay Foster, have never heard of him and have no affiliation with his firm.

The Mississippi Attorney General's Office administers the Law Enforcement Officers and Firefighters Disability Trust Fund which provides benefits to law enforcement officers and firefighters injured in the line of duty. Benefits provided pursuant to the Disability Trust are separate and distinct from workers compensation. The workers compensation benefit is 66 /23 of the average weekly wage and are not taxed. Medical expenses are unlimited.

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.

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.
