ACLU's Favorite Place Has a Homicide

A homicide took place at the Canton Estate Apartments in Madison County. WLBT reported:

Madison County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a fatal shooting.

Deputies say an 85-year-old security guard was on duty at Canton Estates when someone approached his car and shot him just after midnight.

The security guard died at the scene.

There’s no word on a possible suspect at this time.

The deceased is Davis Herring of Richland.

Shame the sheriff up in them parts is not allowed to patrol that particular area for fear of gettin' his ass drug into court. Will we hear from Mayor Truly? Of course not. Will the MadCo Journal decry this and editorialize? Of course not.

Meanwhile: Mike Espy is OK with this sort of thing and will recommend the sheriff settle with the ACLU if anything comes of this.

Looks like
Mr. Herring was executed ????

I'm sorry Mr. Herring.

That is not in the city limits, just outside of city limits and Truly has no say so like when the Feds hit the chicken plant outside the city. He doesn't care anyway, it was a white guy from what I hear.

The hell you talking about @2:45pm, it’s right in the middle of Canton.

2:45...Wait til those 600 new units are completed WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS of Cantonia, on 55 just south a bit. Truly will need at least 120 more cops. And Academy will have to add another ammo aisle.

A good attorney needs to jump on this & sue the hell out of the ACLU.

@3:34. The hell YOU talking about. Canton Estates and Canton Family Units are outside of the city limits. This is solely the MCSO Jurisdiction. Same argument you guys were having about Zip Codes a few days or so back. Patrolled by MCSO and NOT the Canton Police Department.

@ #;#%. Almost guarantee that the CPD will not grow much more than it is. Having a hell of a time keeping folks. The Links and Greens are two stories high. The Trails of Madison (name of the new units) are three stories high. One way in off of Old Jackson Road. Ought to be neat.
By the way, that poster at 2:45 is right about Canton Estates being outside the city limits.

@3:44 it not in the city limits . Next question?

If it's named Canton Estates why isn't it in the city limits of Canton. It should be called Madison County Estates. ;-)

@4:25 PM Yo Mr. Bright Spark, or is it Mr. Brain Trust. There are 1,000s of parcels with a "Canton, MS" address that are in the county.

There are 1,000s of parcels with a "Madison, MS" address that are in the county.

You voted for Hillary, didn't you? Admit it.

The sheriffs department is a joke. The real department left town in 2012, but y’all keep voting the sheriff in. These days it all about politics.

A white man and very likely a black man involved in this crime. By sheer luck, the white man was the victim and not the killer, and therefore we avoid becoming the center of the nation’s attention.

Does it get anymore heinous than executing and 85 year old man just sitting in his car. Hope I’m on the jury. I’m sick of this shit. God have mercy on our children. This shit gets worse every year.

7:29 "left town in 2012" you mean that Drunk?

2 sperate older white gentlemen murdered in Mississippi in a week by thugs and barely a blimp on the national radar. We should riot and burn down the apartments and Region 8 according to the latest trend in justice.

This whole area will, if annexation goes as Truly wants, will become Canton PD jurisdiction. They are already just running about three cops a shift. The department cannot recruit from certified officers with the exception of previously fired cops from other areas. Gonna get interesting and don't envy Chief Brown at all.

Anonymous said...

It was a stroke of genius, whoever the mayor was back then, to carve that trailer park out of the annexation in Canton. Operative word - Genius.

Obviously it was not anybody of Truly's calibre...note operative word.

The same with the sawmill quarters

Operative word - Genius. Should never be associated with Truly. The trailer park next to Peco and Saw Mill Quarters will also be under Canton Jurisdiction with annexation. They would like to get the Oil Mill Quarter as well. Truly see's lots of tax money coming from these areas.

6:57 - The county has refused (not failed) to do anything about the 3rd world trailer park since the late seventies. That's when the place was established following the tornado. What do you think Truly will do about it.

If you really wanted to feel your jaw drop and your stomach sink, take a drive through the place. Have the name of a front-end alignment shop in mind before you do.

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.
