Baptist Hospital Killer was Catch & Release Grad

Surprise, surprise.  The man who killed two Baptist Hospital employees yesterday is a graduate of the Hinds County catch & release program. 

A grand jury indicted Holmes in 2014 for strangling his sister in 2013.  This being Hinds County, his sister told Assistant District Attorney Greta Mack that she wanted to reduce the charge to a misdemeanor.  The ADA and Circuit Judge Winston Kidd acceded  to the request. Judge Kidd reduced the felony to a misdemeanor, sentenced Holmes to serve 6 months in jail, and then suspended the sentence. 

Greta Mack? Where have we heard that name before?  JJ reported on December 16, 2019:

21 years if the question is asked in Hinds County.  Hinds County Assistant District Attorney Greta Mack and Circuit Judge Winston Kidd approved a plea bargain that will allow  Marcus Mallett to only serve 21 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to 2nd Degree Murder in the death of Shanitra Ramsey.

JPD charged him with allegedly killing 21 year-old Shanitra Ramsey on February 5.  JPD also charged him for shooting Ramsey's friend several times as he fled the scene.  Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries agents arrested Mallett the killer a week later during a traffic stop. Earlier post.

A Hinds County grand jury indicted Mallett for first degree murder for the death of Ramsey.  It also indicted him for aggravated assault, carjacking, and shooting into an occupied vehicle.  Ramsey and Joshua Ledbetter were in the vehicle when Mallett began shooting.  He shot Joshua Ledbetter as he fled.  The indictment included a classification for Mallett as a habitual offender....

Mallett pleaded guilty on December 3 to second degree murder.  The District Attorney accepted the plea.  Judge Winston Kidd sentenced him to serve 40 years in prison but suspended 15 years of the sentence and gave him credit for time served.  25  years thus becomes 21 years.  Mallett will be 51 years old when he is released from prison for killing Shanitra Ramsey.  Rest of article.

WLBT reported Holmes faced a murder charge back in 2007 but it is not known what happened to the charges.

What a monster. It is unfortunate that society has devolved to tolerate such savagery.
Seventy years ago his neighbors would've given him what he deserved had justice not been served.
But now it's catch and release and he left so many victims.

Horrible, horrible. I think this is a reason to protest. This guy shouldn’t have been out to kill again. Prayers for the families that lost loved ones yesterday.

The Baptists pride themselves on concealed carry members providing "security"on Sunday mornings.

But at the same time, they prohibit trained security from carrying a weapon until they're "on the clock" ?

Shaking my head

This might (and should) bite a big chunk out of the Southern Baptist Convention's checking account.

I am an attorney and I know Greta. She is a good attorney. It's so easy for people who dont practice to get on a website and stay what should happen. But you all dont know all the facts. If the victim says they dont want a person prosecuted and will not show up for trial, what is the DA supposed to do? Things like that happen in every county.

Once again the Hinds County D.A.'s Office strikes again along with Judge Kidd. Until that office hires ADAs with some guts and backbone (and who live in Hinds County), this will never change. The judges are rubber-stamping the recommendations of the D.A.'s office for the most part. The judges who are giving blessings, including Kidd, should be un-elected.

Sounds like the folks at Baptist will probably be dealing with Morgan & Morgan soon.

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.
