WLBT: JPD Hires Violent Felon

WLBT reported JPD hired a criminal and wound up arresting him ten days later.  C. J. Lemaster reported last night:

Internal documents obtained by 3 On Your Side show a Jackson Police Department command staff conflicted over the hiring of a man with a violent criminal past.

The department’s background investigations report for Xavier Hill shows two members of JPD leadership -- Cmdr. Tyrone Buckley and Deputy Chief Tina Wallace -- rejecting the application in July 2019.

In August, Assistant Chief Ricky Robinson reversed the decision and approved Hill’s application.  Rest of article worth reading.   

Make no mistake, Assistant Chief Robinson is the Mayor's boy.  If he has a problem at JPD, he runs to the Mayor or uses the Mayor's name as protection.  If he disagrees with the Chief, he runs to the Mayor.  Make no mistake, the Mayor has no problem staffing JPD with criminals.  Same Mayor that took the crime reports off the website for a year and then changed them to less informative ones.  Same Mayor that holds crime press conferences without JPD Chief although Robinson was there standing right behind him.  Same Mayor that has seen homicides increase to top five numbers every year under his watch.

This crap at JPD is what the Mayor wants.

Abuse of Power. Time to start the impeachment proceedings! Seriously, the Council should start asking VERY tough questions and even discuss setting up an independent counsel for investigative purposes. If the Administration stonewalls at any point, they should call in the Feds. This is a public safety issue that possibly involves corruption.

And if the Mayor knew and withheld funding to Ukraine till his boy was hired...then get Adam Schiff and Nadler to come on down!

If you have a problem and call the Jackson Police Dept., you now have two problems.

Is this what you call Lumamba Detangement Syndrome?

Do a top years for murder in Jackson based on population. More telling.

If such essential services as state government and hospitals were not located in this cesspool this would be a lot simpler...just let nature take it's course. Unfortunately that's not the case and it grows more evident everyday that the state needs to step in and secure this third world hell-hole for the greater good of all it's citizens. It's time !

Actual murder rate:

1995 = 49 per 100,000
1994 = 48 per 100,000
2018 = 51 per 100,000
1993 = 44 per 100,000
2019 = 50 per 100,000

Adjusted for population, 2018 and 2019 have been Jackson's deadliest years.

Y A W N - the Highway Patrol has hired plenty of troopers with disqualifying offenses. There are plenty of felons, domestic abusers and drug addicts wearing that red stripe down their leg.

Is this what the talking heads refer to as criminal justice reform?

I wish I could say I am surprised, but I'm not. Hence, Jackson gets more of the same.

I hope this does not keep JPD and other city departments from hiring ex-felons that have served their time.

Lumumba Derangement Syndrome would be 2018 and 2019 were not even in the top 20 much less the top 5 deadliest years for Jackson. Also installing his own puppet to hire felons would not even be an issue.

This isn't new news, nor is it this current administration only. I went through the JPD academy in the early 90's with three people I knew for a fact had criminal records. I wasn't really even surprised then.

@11:06 you seem to be in denial of your lds. The first step to getting better is admitting you have a problem.

This blog is nothing but deep state apologists and never lumumbaers and it seems to be affecting a lot of you personally. Get help now before it’s too late and you all end up sharing a psych ward together.

This is what happens when a government is run by social scientists and professional visionaries (in this case, the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement). We wind up with a bunch of crap that doesn't work.

It really doesn't help when we try to excuse failures by noting that someone, at some time, has done something equally as bad. That's what I call rationalizing and minimizing a problem.

Cynical Sam said...

Baby Chocks fingerprints are all over the hiring of this thug. I wonder how many vehicles at the impound yard (where he worked) did he release to his thug homies without authorization?

Anonymous said...

To be fair, YarBro was the one who promoted the "ban the box" in hiring initiative, meaning some felons could work for the City, so I guess Choco LaDumba is just following his lead.

Never fear. Any day now Lumumba will announcing that Amazon and Google will be opening major corporate expansions on Farish Street. The Jackson revival is here and Lumumba's vision is vindicated!

These type of appointments have historical precedent in revolutionary movements. You need commissars willing to commit acts of violence. Others have mentioned the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. We all know about the elder Lumumba's role as a radical black separatist revolutionary in the Republic of New Afrikamovement. I recommend the book Days of Rage to anyone who is unfamiliar with the history of violent revolutionary movements in the USA on the 1960s and 1970s. If you don't know the history you need to know. Whenever history has been forgotten it will often repeat.

Oh yeah, the same surly and sassy customer service you receive locally is exactly what Amazon and Google are looking for. Expect Discrimination lawsuits within 10 years of any tech company opening up shop in Jackson.

It seems baby chokwe will leave a legacy after all. He lives a few houses down from me but I can tell you sure he's a nice guy but he's really clueless when it comes to policy or decision making. He's really incompetent. I don't mean that as an insult by any stretch. I mean it honestly.

White mayor set the record!

Good to get some eyewitness testimony, 1:17. Your measured comments concur with what I have seen and heard from a distance. The Mayor is a sort of life size cardboard cutout, a Potemkin politician. He looks the part, but he only speaks in abstractions and buzzwords. Where's the beef?

He needs to man up and show us that he has some grit. Right now he's fiddling while Rome burns, and even the fiddling is third rate.

Mr. Mayor, show some passion for the job. Raise your voice and make direct statements that focus on the fact that our city is under siege from early to late adolescent criminals and you are the Cop in Charge. We know that it's going to take time to pave streets and straighten out the water and sewer issues, but it doesn't take time to get some boots on the streets with clear orders from the Commander in Chief.

I assume you have encouraged the new Sheriff to be aggressive. Let's roll!

Do a little digging and you’ll find that there were many more homicides than reported. They don’t count the ones that died weeks after the fact.

So many people think there is a correlation between murder rate and an efficient police department? WRONG! There is a correlation between murder rate and the moral fiber of the community. Cops can solve murders; they cannot prevent them.

Anonymous said...

The mayor can simply assume that this citizen is another victim of the racist criminal justice system. To deny him an employment opportunity would only compound the injustice this man will endure. JPD must be a part of the solution not a part of the problem. Craaaaaazeeeee.

Why is this news ?

It's not surprising in the least.

Baby "Chok" has no clue about running a campground, much less a city.
(Large town is more accurate)

I only hope the poor animals that remain at "The Zoo" have enough fresh water tonight.

To the commentators that hoped this wouldn't stop the city from in the future hiring convicted felons who have served there time: (1) is there any evidence that he served his time - I don't see it, but let's assume for your sake he did; (2) the concept of giving convicted felons a job after having served there time is that they would be 'rehabilitated'. Obviously this POS wasn't, since within the first week on the job, he was committing another crime - while on the job and on the payroll.

Next question - what's up with paying the dude after he got fired? Anybody looking into that little gem? Not only the perp, but whoever signed off on the time sheets need to be paying back a few thousand dollars it seems to me.

Of course, if this was Baby Chock's hire, he probably made sure that the payrolls got signed and processed for his homeboy - gotta take care of those downtrodden folks somewhere, since that's the essence of crime in our city.

And to think, West Jackson . . . at one time . . . had had more money than Eastover and Woodland Hills.

( But that was back in the 1940's & 50's ).

The Lil' town Madison can't even be included in that fact.

I'm sure the overbys in fondren were glad to get $10 million for metrocenter. The rich get richer in woodland hills.

Didn't Mayor Frank Melton also participate in the city employment of ex-cons and other nefarious entrepreneurs?

SkyCopter WTF1 said...

"...hires violent felons..." indicates plural, more than one. Who are the others?

Meanwhile WLBT hires news-readers who never seem to die off or retire or get shelved. Please for the sake of Metro sanity reassign these two anachronistic dinosaurs, give them work-from-home senior status or give them a farewell party.

Well they hired Ron Nation who lied about his military service and education.

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.
