I bet Larry David could make a funny joke about this. *cue theme*

8:35 AM, Larry David opens his mouth and spews garbage, and somehow people call it 'humor'. No humor is needed in this situation with the death of a young man.

Why is his Facebook page being displayed?

What type of horrendous person are you?

There IS no FB page by that name.

I will never understand why thugs and wannabes love Tony Montana so much. The movie Scarface was a cautionary tale. He was a psychotic imbecile that lost everything he loved.

Pretty sure that is Pacino in Godfather II.

10:11, I bet you wouldn’t have been calling him a thug if he were white. But sure, you’re not racist.

I was beggining to think that Baby Choks anti-crime initiatives were kicking in, but alas, it's more likely that the thugs were at their annual convention in Nola on Bourbon Street.

Just a guess.....but I think this may be DRUG related. Bad debts or territorial encroachment. Folks have to learn that the guys do not play. They are lethal. Al Capone instructed his henchmen to shoot them twice in the head, twice in the heart, and then cut their throat so if they lived they could not talk and put the finger on him. Baaaaaad Men!

In response to your comment, a white thug is what the "wannabe" was intended for.

Pacino was nothing less than stellar in "The Godfather " along with "The Godfather, Part II".

Jauan Tolbert (RIP) may have admired Al's role in "Scarface", but every time I try to watch that film, I get bored.

Just me.

Not really a bad film, just too long without a compelling story (IMHO).

But movies, will always be subjective.

options, 1) random victim of late night, bad area violence? 2) Rule out Klan, he is a nobody and those days are gone. 3) Hundreds of FB friends, most are of color and use the 'N..ia' word very much, us 'bitches' also. 3) A hit over drugs, rap, women, money owed. More than one person knows what went down.
Regardless of his lifestyle hope their are some leads and a arrest(s). Statistically we are more likely murdered by own race. I go with option 3.

6:51 - Again, there is no Facebook page by that name. Check your spelling.

What # is this?

A few nights after this shooting, there was a random shooting behind the Whataburger on County Line. However, reports say right after that, other areas around Madison heard gunshots. The victim supposedly drove himself to Canton to the hospital. Was he being pursued and shot at?

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.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug.
