Oops!

The Madison Poh-lice Departmetn issued the following statement.


Over the past several days, Madison City Hall has received numerous complaints from citizens alleging the violation of State of Mississippi Executive Order 1477, issued by Governor Tate Reeves on April 24, 2020, particularly alleging that the Family Barber Shop, located in the City of Madison, was conducting operations prohibited by Section I(h)(ix)of the Executive Order.

Consequently, on April 28, 2020, at 1:20 PM, the owner of the Family Barber Shop was served written notice by the City of Madison that such allegations had been made and that further violations could result in penalties as set forth in Miss. Code Ann. Section 33-15-43.

No official charges have been lodged against the owner of this business at this time.

Kingfish note: Do I need to spell it out for this knucklehead? Take your tools of the trade home.  Call your regulars.  Go to their homes.  Charge extra for the convenience and risk.  This is not hard.

Remember when people were afraid they might get AIDS from getting a haircut?

Every person I see who says keep it shut down is still earning an income because if you had been without a pay check for a month or so you have to work. If it’s risk health or feed my family I would be beating the door down to work. I have been there and it’s a terrible place to be. This will negatively effect people for years to come.

Madison should be ashamed. Let the Gov Send in the highway patrol as they are State police and he issued the order. I can go to Kroger and Walmart and ACE hardware without any restrictions. If people have to work and people need the service it’s time to let it happen. If your are scared stay home.

Shut the F up Kingfish. People only trying to make a living and feed their families. It's no more damn dangerous than going to the grocery store or Lowe's with a hundred plus people there on top of each other walking around. It's naive or stupid to think you would be less protected at a barber shop with one person around you than the dozens of people walking and standing around you waiting 15 minutes or more to check out. It's asinine.

This is so stupid and such overkill. Let those that want and need to work do so. Those that want to stay home or do otherwise,,,that’s their choice too. This guy was 100% within his right to open up and serve and keep his employees working.
Kroger is right across the street from his shop with thousands of people going through there each week.

Love all these comments from folks who are normally law and order, conservative individuals now saying that if one wants to flout the law, he/she should be able to do it at their own will. When folks on the west side of Jackson decide they can shoot their guns in the air (not worried about where the bullets land when they come back to earth), or run around with their pants at their knees, they scream and holler about where is the law to put a stop to those individuals doing what they want to do.

No, this isn't about one's health and risking what they choose to risk - the shelter in place order wasn't meant to stop people from getting sick but to try to control the spread.

And anyone that can't see the difference between going into a big box store and purchasing some lumber and sitting in a barber chair inches away from the one doing the cutting - for 15 or more minutes, you probably don't care to open your eyes. You would just rather bitch.

And - by the way - the MS Highway Patrol is not the "State Police". That was set in place back in the 50's and remains the fact today. Highway Patrolmen have no authority to arrest someone in the city of Madison, unless they are driving on Highway 51.

KF is right. if the salon is open, perhaps someone could take the virus home to family that does not approve of a family member getting a haircut. if the barber goes into a home, everyone is ok with any potential risk.

otherwise--you might unknowingly infect someone else.

in a few weeks the reward will outweigh the risk, but for the next two weeks its not worth it.

or cut your own hair. suck it up snowflakes.

People can lose their license for doing hair in their homes during the quarantine, apparently. I’m sure Family Barber thought about that option before you did.

Karen out here turning folks in while she and the girls have drinks, swim in the pool, play tennis, and the children roam the neighborhoods in packs. This is unconstitutional and I bet he could fight it as shaving beards and cutting hair was one of the first things the cdc said would help prevent the spread and contraction of the commie cough. I would have told them where they could go. This is a major overreach.

I go there once a month. I know Mike personally and he is a great man. When did we become such a nation of pansies and snowflakes. Kroger and Walgreens is open. Walmart and Costco and sams are open. I’m sure we can still get haircuts without dying. Hell, I’m sure I could even open carry there if I wanted to.

This is so dumb. What a waste of energy and concern!! If there were “less than 10” gathered (also dumb) then WHO CARES!!!

My husband’s barber came to our house and cut his hair in our garage 2 weeks ago because of these dumb rules.

We have a son who lost his (good) job. The company he worked for went bankrupt, with no financial reserves and he got two weeks severance. He has a wife and two kids, Jr High and Junior in College.

I have a hard time criticizing anyone who wants to stay in business and provide themselves (and perhaps their family) with enough money to pay their house payment.

I'm already sick of people asking "Doesn't he get unemployment?" Trust me, that check won't touch their bills. Thank goodness, he has 401K money he was setting aside to supplement Social Security in about 20 years. That is disappearing, both for bills and as the stock market crashes.

Perhaps our country will make it by giving young people Trillions in debt to pay in taxes. As for me, I see nothing but pain for the next 100 years. Assuming we don't all die from Corona, or the next viral mutation.

I think the lockdown was appropriate but also applaud this man’s decision to open up. Didn’t act like a protesting fool at the capital. He just said, “if you want to challenge my right to earn an income, come stop me.” I hope he opens back up if he feels strongly for the cause. He’s not infecting unwitting customers.

KF, it's a $5,000 fine and loss of license for barbers/stylists to do what you are suggesting.

How about people take responsibility for their own lives. If y'all don't want to go to a barber, DON'T FUCKING GO TO A BARBER!

KF makes a great point, and the lady who cuts my hair has already started doing this. Just had mine cut last week. I didn’t mind paying her a little more for her to come to my house. Plus, I extended more of a tip to her than I usually do, and it was well received. She mentioned that other stylists, barbers, etc. are doing the same thing, and some believe that it will change their business practice post-corona. “If you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you.”

People should mind their own damn business and get on their knees and ask God what they should be doing to prepare for the real hell that is coming.

Wake up people...it's obvious none of us know if anything we hear from our government or media is true. Right now we're facing food shortages - they're slaughtering hundreds of thousands of cows, chicken and pigs, not to mention plowing under fields of vegetables (which you have to dig around a little bit to find this information because MSM isn't reporting on it.) Why is our country (and the world) systematically being broken down...what is the real reason behind it? The answer is spiritual - there is a cosmic war taking place and we're caught in the middle and will have to choose sides. We have entered the end days.

That being said, if you don't know Jesus and He is not your Lord and Savior, it is not too late to remedy that problem. We all die, the question you should consider is what happens with you after that?

I pray you all come to the knowledge of the Truth.

Ask the governor who is cutting his hair!

He should have waited a few days just to keep him and the employees from fines/harm from violating the order. Yes, it stinks. It makes no sense to be able to open up retail and be able to go buy something trivial, rather than go get a haircut. I disagree 100 percent with how Tate Reeves has handed the "safer at home" thing. How can those in retail that have gone back, keep 6 ft away? You can't. We should be open or closed not a little here, a little there.

Anyway, in all seriousness, there are mobile dog hair cut business that do "quite well" financially in charging for cuts. This would be great for someone to do with hair and go to the customers. I have never heard so much people fussing about no haircuts, roots, or coloring, long hair, etc. Your choice is wait or buy a pair of clippers/scissors and do it yourself. When life gives you lemons make lemonade. Someone could make a good living right now doing mobile haircuts and delivering items to people's doors. There are still some folks staying home, especially the seniors/compromised. If I was a barber or cosmologist, I'd be going to them if it was possible.

10:57PM, unfortunately the trillion or so in student loans you “young people are already paying” is nothing compared to what’s in store for you years from now.

If enough in your generation ever do wake up and realize what my, and the generation before mine has done to you, please remember this:

Just as we do not want to stereotype every millennial as lazy, entitled and still living with mommy and daddy in their late 20’s and beyond, since every millennial certainly is not……

Not everyone in my and the previous generation was on board with the kick the can down the road total screwing that awaits yours.

The likely good news for the generations that have created the unfunded liabilities and print money as if there’s nothing at all wrong with doing so…is that the sheep public are far too ill-informed to understand basic mathematics, and almost nobody these days understands the laws of nature.

Isn't that why the nanny state requires barbers to spend thousands on schooling and licensing? So they know how to sterylize combs? I think a licensed barber knows how to give a haircut without catching a virus.

It is illegal for a hair stylist to work from home. Who is to say the same people will report them also for this! If safety done. Heck Juicy Seafood on Riverwind Drive in Pearl has lines of people each day within 6 inches of each other waiting on food to pick up. Why are these businesses being cited! These people must feed their families or can also be liable for child neglect. Shame on all of you so instead of reporting why not offer food and money to pay bills for these employees!

This amounts to an illegal taking of this man’s business by the government. He should sue the state government for his losses. After all, that is what the former Secretary of State is doing to the federal government by suing for the taking of 16th section land in southwest mississippi.

@7:16 I am sorry for your loss. Every death is sad, and I truly wish they all could be prevented. The truth is we will all die at some point unless Jesus returns before we do. The virus is here and here to stay. Keeping businesses closed and shutting down every aspect of life is not going to eradicate it. We have to allow people the CHOICE to open back up and get back to normal life KNOWING there are risks that we choose to take as individuals. Nothing is risk free in life- it's just part of it. If you do not believe we are taking huge risks to our way of life and standard of living by shutting everything down, you need to re-evaluate. No person was forced to go to work or forced to come get their hair cut as each made a conscious decision and choice to do so knowing the risks.

Law has made it a crime to cut a head of hair in a barbershop.

Law is whats wrong, so many that have a working mind have decided the risks from the this virus is BS and hold the whole thing in scorn. People will die from all kinds of things, this is no different. None

The economic impact is on the way and it will hit like a loaded freight train hitting an econobox full of drunks.

I don't have an opinion either way about the barber shop up in Madison, because I decided about 15 years ago to stop throwing my money away for a haircut. After getting a bad haircut and waiting entirely too long for it, I learned how to cut my own hair and have been doing so ever since. I have save thousands of dollars and cut my hair whenever I get good and ready. I've had 2 haircuts since all this woohan virus shit started. Heck, I may cut my hair today. It ain't that hard folks; give it a try.

The bottom line is that Tater doesn't feel like "these folks" are shit and less than. Think about it, when you get a haircut or get your nails did you don't pay and you aren't charged state sales tax...Sure, they have to pay for their license and all that but that's it..I would be pissed if I was told I wasn't shit because I cur hair or whatever....

The Governor's reasoning for keeping barbershops closed is that the barbers are in too close contact with their clients and thus a higher risk. But yet doctors can touch their patients and even cut them open for surgeries, yet that's ok. I understand that doctors can use PPE and take precautions, but so can the barbers. They can wear gloves and a mask when cutting your hair, just as a doctor can wear gloves and mask to cut you open during surgery.

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.
