Victim's Attorney Objects to Treatment of Alleged Child Molester

A Jackson Municipal Court Judge finally issued a no-contact order to a JPD officer arrested Saturday for child exploitation. Attorney Lisa Ross stated in a press release:

I am pleased to announce that Municipal Court Judge William Walker this morning entered a no-contact order prohibiting Jackson Police Department officer Mark Coleman from contacting the minor child and her family while he is being investigated by multiple agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Mark Coleman was released Saturday, May 9, 2020, on an unsecured $50,000.00 bond. No provisions were made to protect the minor child and her family from Mark Coleman in the initial order setting bond.

After being retained by the family of the minor child, I asked Judge Walker today to revisit his order and he did. In addition to asking Judge Walker to enter a no contact order, I asked the judge to require Mark Coleman to be placed electronic monitoring like other defendants in Hinds County, Mississippi, who have been charged with sex crimes against children.

I object to the manner in which Mark Coleman's arrest was handled by the Jackson Police Department and hope JPD will not seek to cover-up the unlawfulness of any individuals, especially law enforcement officers, who prey on minors in this jurisdiction.
 Coleman has been a JPD officer for 28 years.  He is a patrolman in Precinct 3.

Lisa Ross is a darned good attorney. Knew her years ago before I retired from law.

She fails to say what the judge's response was to her second request, so we can assume it was denied.

Can we finally get some idea of the age of this 'minor child'? I would hate to think she/he is 6 or 8.

Don't tell me to go look somewhere else and seek out the answer. Just provide the damned facts. Thanks.

WLBT reported:

Ross said the child only knew the police officer because of his role as an officer. She says Coleman bought the child a cell phone and would text her on it looking for sex.

She says the family contacted JPD weeks ago after they found out and JPD contacted the FBI--"the one thing JPD did right," she said.

Ross claims there was an attempt to cover up the crime within JPD because there’s no record of who he called to be freed on bond.

“Who in your department called the judge and asked the judge to release this man on an unsecured bond?” she asked. “...Why was that call placed?”

Ross argues there is overwhelming evidence for JPD to fire Coleman. She says the cell phone records led them right to him.

The minor was 16 years old

I'm sure termination is on the way following procedure to avoid litigation against the department by the Officer.

What was the need for a televised public press conference in obtaining an order to "protect" a minor. I assume his/her identity will remain confidential.

If this child is not being guarded, she will be just another statistic.

Cops and Poon-tang are at least as old as tin-stars and boots. Sadly it's a fact of life. Maybe public hanging would have driven it underground.

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.
