Idiot of the Day

The Justice Department issued the following statement.

Newton Wade Townsend, 52, of Brandon, Mississippi, was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury and charged with making a threat against public officials, announced U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst and U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund.

On June 1, 2020, Townsend placed a phone call to the office of a Member of Congress and threatened to kill the Congressman and his African-American staffers.

Duuuuuhhhh..... I'm Thtupid.

“A violent threat against a public official is a serious federal crime. The United States Attorney’s Office will continue to protect victims, prosecute those fueled by hate who seek to intimidate and terrorize others, and always ensure that justice is done,” said U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst.

“The mission of the United States Capitol Police is to protect the Congress, the U.S. Capitol, and all who work and visit here. Our special agents did an excellent job in investigating this case, and I appreciate the partnership of our law enforcement partners and the U.S. Attorney’s Office throughout this entire process,” said Chief Sund.

Townsend will be arraigned tomorrow, June 25, 2020, at 2:30 p.m. before U.S. Magistrate Judge Keith Ball. Chief U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan, III has been assigned the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan M. McCalla is prosecuting the case.

The public is reminded that an indictment is merely a charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt. Every defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Kingfish note: No mercy for this $*@(@* idiot if convicted.

Yes, the Congressman was Bennie Thompson.

i'd be willing to bet that somewhere in the concern he voiced there was mention of "tax dollars" which is perfectly ironic. it'd be a REAL shame if he disappeared before becoming a burden of the MS justice system. it's so frustrating that assholes like this guy create the type of headlines that will undoubtedly bring more negative attention to our state.

he doesn't strike me as a proponent of changing the flag.

That looks like the face of a man who thinks he has all the answers, and not someone I wish to follow.

This was on WLBT 3 days ago. You didn't add any extra information. You are almost as bad at Clarion Ledger. I was hoping when it made it here that you would would name the congressman. But you added nothing to the reporting.

That is the face of a man who is saying "do what you must, for I have already won"

Public officials have more protections against threats and harm than do the people who put them in office.

Equal protection under the law? Not so much. The ruling class is just special, and this specific Congress-critter also gets to check two boxes.

If you poked that dude with a pin Budweiser would come out.

Where are all the stories of people threatening our President!?!?!?

I wonder if he will get a harsher penalty than the guy that actually put Senator Rand Paul in the hospital? From Wikipedia
Boucher was sentenced to 30 days in prison, one year of probation, 100 hours of community service, and a $10,000 fine;
Im guessing it was Bennie so they will make an example of thisbguy.

Why didn't the po po let him shave before the photo shot. Police Brutality!

@3:54, in case you haven't figured it out, multiple outlets have reported the congressman that was threatened and it is who you thought it would be based on the Rankin county origins - Bennie Thompson.

I saw the WLBT report a couple of days ago. The CL had a report this morning. Howard Ballou said the "report identified the Congressman only by the initials BT" Seriously. The producers at channel 3 must all be junior high school journalism students.

They rely heavily on their decoder rings that came in the box of cocoa puffs.

He’s back home, out on a signature bond.

with rights, come responsibility.

To June 25 @5:17, They had to plead that guy out. No jury would unanimously convict anyone for assaulting Rand Paul.

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
