Madison Deputies Shot

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation issued the following statement.

 On Thursday, September 05, 2019, the Madison County Sheriff’s Department responded to a hostage/kidnap situation in the 100 block of Lelia’s Drive in Madison County. After making contact with the suspect, a pursuit ensued traveling westbound on MS16. Due to public safety concerns, stop sticks were deployed in order to end the pursuit. After making contact with the stop sticks, the suspect’s vehicle left the roadway and came to rest in a ditch at the intersection of Avondale Road and MS16. Upon exiting the vehicle, the suspect immediately opened fire with multiple officers sustaining injuries. Officers returned fire striking the suspect and were able to take him into custody. The injured officers and suspect were transported to local hospitals.

Mississippi Bureau of Investigation agents along with the MBI Crime Scene Unit arrived on scene in order to conduct interviews and collect evidence regarding this ongoing investigation. All investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney’s office throughout the process for consideration and review. As is our policy, MBI does not identify officers involved in these types of incidents, and instead refers questions of that nature to the respective agency.

Kingfish note: Two deputies were shot.

WAPT says head not arm.

The Deputy that was hit with shrapnel was in the arm. Another Deputy was shot in the head.

To stop this gun crime and these shootings, we should pass a law that says you can't shoot at law enforcement. Then criminals will stop shooting at law enforcement. It's really that simple.

There were 2 deputies shot. One was shot in the head and was airlifted to UMC.

May God be with the deputies. It's time for a mandatory death sentence if a criminal even pulls out a gun. And it's time to get rid of the residents on death row, and not by means of a Haley Barbour type pardon.

Well the suspect is alive so we don’t have to ask his ethnicity.

Wal Mart and Kroger just became sanctuary grocery stores.

On any day. On any call this can happen. God bless law enforcement.

I'm hearing the suspect was a marine that was a rifle instructor. Emptied several mags. Have no idea circumstances that brought this on. Hope the deputies are ok.

Remember the incident on Hoy Road two weeks ago? Law enforcement from all over several counties and jurisdictions converged on an overturned trailer and truck that had been stolen in Flowood. Cops everywhere. Cops reported suspect was no longer in area. Next day he was spotted and arrested right there in the area. Time for training.

Now we have deputies rolling out of their vehicles and being shot. Time for training.

Patrolling the roads is obviously different from responding in critical, life-threatening situations. Time for training.

Our hearts go out to these officers and their families. You are loved and appreciated everyday in many ways by most of the citizens of Madison County. Please keep us posted as to the progress of these officers.

7:37 Have you seen the photos of the incident? Might want to hold your comment till you see this one.

Just an off the top of my head thought.

Boondocks is for sale, is there a Southeast Law Enforcement Assocation that could buy it or long term lease it and operate is as the Southeast branch of Gunsite?

Officers do not usually have the training and mindset for these situations as they happen so infrequently and then they are more worried about prosecution than staying alive. This stuff happens in fractions of seconds and the one who has the advantage is the one who does what is not expected.

If you want to feel really sad about the state that we are in as a country/society, go read the comments on the WLBT facebook page regarding this incident. People aren't angry that the jerk shot a police officer in the head, they are angry that the jerk is white and still alive. Their first thought in all of this is that if he was black, he would be dead.

9:06 shut up!!!

Well 9:44, historically if he was black, not only would he probably be dead, also his name would have been released and charges filed before noon.

Shame on you 11:12. You are no better than the people on WLBT FB page.

The truth hurts, Godspeed to the Deputies.

I am so tired of the race card being played. There were LEO officers of every race & both male & female on duty that day. They are annointed by God in a calling that most people don’t understand. They deserve our love, support & respect every day,

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.
