Wendy's Employee Kills Fellow Employee

The Pearl Police Department issued the following statement. 

Pearl Police have charged Edward DeLawrence McWilliams, 42, of Richland, with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of Herbert Redmond, 25, of Jackson, at the Wendy’s on Pearson Road Thursday night.

Officers responded to the restaurant just before 8:30 p.m. after a report of a fight between two employees in the kitchen area.  Redmond had been stabbed in the neck and died at the scene. McWilliams was taken into custody at the restaurant without incident.

Investigators recovered the knife, which belonged to McWilliams.

McWilliams is being held at the Rankin County Detention Center without bond.  McWilliams is a convicted felon that served time in the Mississippi Department of Corrections for armed robbery and manslaughter.

The case has been turned over to Rankin County District Attorney Bubba Bramlett for prosecution.

And there are legislators (at the state and federal level) who want to outlaw criminal background checks. (Not that this employer paid to have one performed.)

It was HIS knife. It wasn't Wendy's kitchen knife. Knives must be outlawed!

"Without incident." Must be how he got that swollen eye - those racist cops who work for Pearl PD must've gotten in a few licks before he got to the jailhouse. Gotta wonder how this all least he'll be prosecuted by the Madison/Rankin DA instead of the fools across the river.

Why do killers EVER get out of jail? Heck, given the price of a bullet or some form of gas versus the cost of incarceration for life, why should a killer even be still alive?

Probably fighting over a frosty.

@12:54 PM, I'm certain the fight he was in with the guy he stabbed had nothing to do with his black eye. I mean, had to be the cops, right? Not the fight where someone got killed.

Try harder.

Pearl has become a magnet for Jackson's troublemakers. I hope Pearl PD polishes their jackboots and cracks down hard on this scum.

12:54 - Can you read or did you just overlook the part that said the two employees were in a fight? Surely you're not just another goober quick to suggest police brutality.

Armed robbery and manslaughter? Why was he out of prison?

1:09PM You celebrating the fact that it is oozing out of the bold new city?

Bullshit. Pearl is the most diverse city in the state. The officers at Pearl PD reflect that diversity. Just like Pearl School District, Pearl PD remains top because the city and the citizens hold them to the highest standards.

Don't bring your crime to Pearl.

Obviously never intended to stab anybody. Must've left his gun at home.

It's illegal for him to carry a gun @3:14. He's a convicted felon.

I’ve noticed little things in Pearl that are concerning. Very aggressive driving is just one sign that suggests core problems. Lots of stop sign and red light running. I don’t even live in Pearl but travel through it regularly going to and from work. I make it a point of looking at the tags of of the offending vehicles. Guess what county most of them are from???? Not Rankin. Pearl has a daunting task. Because they have tried to create an environment where businesses, safe neighborhoods and good schools are the norm, the bad element has followed either in permanently relocating or just daily incursions into the area to work their hustle. They are following the money and hard working folks both black and white that just want to raise their families safely, are the targets.

Love all the Pearl comments and the convenient amnesia about Pearl's history (criminal, political and cultural).
Those living in glass houses really ought not throw stones, even when the glass is now Plexiglas.

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.
