Attempted Kidnapping or Drunken Confusion?

WJTV reported an alleged attempted abduction took place Thursday night at a local liquor store:

On Thursday, two children were frightened by a stranger and now the family of the two kids is urging everyone to be vigilant of their surroundings.

The two boys were approached by a woman while sitting in the car on Old Canton Road.

12 News’ Lanaya Lewis spoke with the aunt of the two boys, ages nine and twelve. She said her sister and her brother-in-law were getting ready to come over to her house Thursday night, but before they came over, they stopped by the store.

Cortessa Edwards said, “My brother-in-law stopped here at the store. He and my sister exited the vehicle and went inside the store. When they got in the store, they heard the children.”

When the parents rushed out of the store, they noticed both of the children screaming and the woman grabbing on the nine-year-old.

Edward continues, “Both of them were fighting off the lady as she was trying to get them. The 12-year-old did advise she didn’t say anything. She just had an evil look in her eyes and just came in the truck.”

After the incident, Edward’s brother-in-law was able to get the details of the vehicle the woman left in. The driver of the car was identified as a Hispanic male.

The aunt says the two boys are still shaken up from the incident.

“Keep your children beside you and in sight at all times… because people are just snatching our babies. All of this stuff is real.”

Jackson Police Department says one man was arrested for DUI in connection to this case, but the details surrounding the woman are still under investigation.
Naturally, the Facebook freakout began.  However, the might be another angle to the story.

Restaurant? Liquor Store? Intoxicated woman? Thought it was her car?

Where is all that crap coming from?

Drunk driving and publicly intoxicated illegals are becoming a too common public menace.

A hispanic male was urinating between cars in a parking lot and my young daughter was exposed. He was so short I didn't see him until it was too late. He fled and I called the police.

The Scott County license plate betrayed him as a likely chicken plant worker. This is ridiculous.

Why, pray tell, were the children in an UNLOCKED vehicle???

Head on over to NextDoor for an entertaining “dialogue” about this incident. The 9 months pregnant baby mama angrily attempts, with very poor grammar, to defend her decision to leave her kids in a running car at the liquor store at night while she dashes in with the baby daddy to buy wine during which time an alleged kidnapping occurred (or didn’t, who knows, it doesn’t seem like anyone was sober enough to know what was happening). There is supposedly video surveillance footage that doesn’t paint the angry baby mama in a very good light.

Hey the essence of the story is what it is. Did some lady try to snatch some kids out of a car? If so, that is f’d up.

This is why I rarely ever leave my house...unless it's to go to the liquor store.

In animals God plants the inherent instinct to protect their young. I guess he figured humans would be smart enough to know that on their own.

Why did both parents have to go in the store and leave children alone? If it were my husband and my child. One of us would have just stayed in the vehicle WITH the doors locked. Problem solved.

Imagine the liberal media shitstorm if one of the parents had shot the drunk illegal. I wonder how the media would spin the narrative for the sheeple that it is bad to protect your kids from criminal border jumpers.

All of this is very entertaining.
But let's not lose sight of the fact that child trafficking is a very real and serious issue in this area and throughout the country. There are many reports of people following parents and caregivers with children and trying to distract them so that a child can be snatched. Be alert and aware with your own children and keep your eyes open for others. Teenagers and women of all ages are also in danger.

Why is a pregnant woman going into a whiskey store anyway. So many questions, so little desire to axe them all.

Hey, 5:53. Most of those reports are total BS. Just hysterical, neurotic, over protective women with a complex that people want to steal their children. Google it. Traffickers don’t steal kids at big box retail stores.

11pm and 7:57am, we can be quite confident that you are alone and don't have loved ones to worry about. No need to Google or provide you with a link. Ask your local law enforcement and government officials. The problem is all too real.

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.
