Lumumba Bans Chokeholds

Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba issued the following statement. 




Kingfish note: Um, what if the "moving vehicle" tries to run over the police officer?

I would think generally the officer would be better served by getting out of the way of the moving vehicle than by standing still and shooting at it. It would be a completely different story if the vehicle were boxed in and the suspect was ramming the police cars to try and break free, in that case the police would likely have a decent shot directly at the suspect.

This is exceptional leadership by Mayor Lumumba.

However, the majority of the systemic racism is in the white havens of Rankin and Madison Counties.

We need to see the same competent leadership from the mayors of Flowood, Ridgeland, Pearl, Brandon, Florence, Richland, Madison, and most importantly Sheriff Bailey of the RCSO.

you will never get equality on police forces when picking police from these local redneck populations. It is time for a federalized police force so that only qualified, properly trained community helpers who are aligned with the civil rights of the colored, gay, and transgender communities will be employed.

For the poster at Juneteenth - If it's not a problem in the Jacktown Hood...why you reckon your mayor banned it? Just thinking out loud here. Can you say publicity stunt.

By the way, no mayor has any authority to ban choke-holds any more than foot chases and breaking out a car window with a club.

Over 80 homicides in jackson last year and 1 or 2 people justifiably shot by AA police officers.... the media really tells you how to think huh.

Lubumbay - while you're banning things, please go ahead and ban murder, shoplifting, carjacking, robbery, rape...and all the other crap we don't want to live with. C'mon mane, you can do it. Flick of a pen!

Black males are 35 times more likely to be killed in a criminal homicide, 20 times more likely to die in a vehicle crash, 21 times more likely to commit suicide, and equally likely to be killed in self-defense by a black citizen as they are to be killed by the police.

...FBI UCR data is the source.

2x as many whites are killed by police than black, 19 white to 9 black unarmed police shootings in 2019. AAs are much lower populations, however they are tragically and statistically (for a myriad of reasons) disproportionately represented in the number of criminal acts. He is deliberately ignoring statistics. Interestingly, over 4000 AAs are killed in criminal homicides yearly. 4000 vs roughly 120 total AA police killings (justified AND Criminal).

Community helpers? They will surely deter the criminals. Moron

Do both parties have to abide by the no chokehold law or just LEO?

The mayor’s body guards are intimidating. I think he needs to remove the systematic threat that they are to people who interact with him, and reassign these body guards to a more useful and less intimidating venue of service. Leaders should set the example and not surround themselves with threatening force and statues of intimidation (i.e. muscle). In this new world, this is just not needed. How about it mayor? I have not seen the mayors of the white systemic racist communities surround themselves with such muscle. Why do you, the mayor of the new Jackson, need such a show of force?

Just more Mayoral (Gum flapping) as usual.

How about don’t resist arrest?

Not sure how anyone is stating any numbers on police shooting deaths as there is no requirement for police to report any stats on this. It’s one of the main things the Democrats are pushing for in their reform proposals. It seems reasonable to me that police would be required to report when they kill someone, but maybe I’m in the minority here.

Surely we all, regardless of your political stance, understands that sound minds are not in control throughout this country today. We along with our children will pay the price for our lack of sanity.

I see a lot of snarky and cynical comments on here. I had to have the talk with my child: if you break the law, resist arrest, punch the officer, steal his taser, shoot his taser at his face, and run away, you could be shot. That's just the cold and simple truth nowadays.

An anecdote that has multiple takeaways: in the 4th grade, we had a D.A.R.E. officer at our school. One of the cutest girls in the class saw the officer's gun in holster and went to go touch it. The officer stepped back and said "Oh no, don't touch that." Ever since then, I've thought of an officer's gun as an extension of his person. It is beyond comprehensible to think of ever punching or assaulting an officer and hoping to get away "scot-free". No "talk" about police brutality required from my parents.

Anonymous 3:54 Do you actually READ FBI crime stats? If you did than you would get making these remarks about systemic crap! The mayor of Jackson CANNOT over rule STATE or Federal LAW. The city of Jackson does not have to ACCEPT federal funding and be on their own financially! Ask the citizens if they want all of their tax dollars raised to offset federal & state dollars! As for RCSD and MCSD keep your mouth shut; the residents LOVE & SUPPORT them. We are thankful for THE THIN BLUE LINES!

I can promise you, the cops don't want to be the social worker, mental health worker, therapist, victim's assistance coordinator, or any other hat society puts on them. Not one police officer went on duty and said he wanted to spend the day with a mentally ill person. It is the politicians, ultimately the citizens, who have put that job description on the police.

In Mississippi, it's the sheriff's deputies who have to take your loved one and stick them in a jail cell because you committed them for mental health/addiction issues. The jail isn't where these people need to be, but no one wants to pay for it. No one wants to pay to have the best people be cops. I know LOTS of departments that pay less the $15 an hour, which is BS.

Frankly, I've never seen a 'protester' who is or has been a cop. They all want to change a system they have no idea about, except by watching Law and Order - SVU, or NCIS. (Where do those Federal agencies get their really cool offices? The ones I've seen are just cubical farms.)

Anywho...

Down with the police, change the flag, erase history...the end is near.

Glad he is finally requiring police reports of some kind.

Is anyone keeping up with the body count in Jackson for the past week?

The truth is that most police officers are not very smart and have never been in charge of anything in their lives. Give them a gun and a badge and they become tough guys.

"Not sure how anyone is stating any numbers on police shooting deaths as there is no requirement for police to report any stats on this. It’s one of the main things the Democrats are pushing for in their reform proposals."

Totally untrue. What the dem leadership wants is a list publishing the names, departments, rank of any and all LEO who have engaged in any type of violent or restraint circumstance by race and sex. That allows the populace to get all angered up and torch a house and destroy a car and perhaps assault a wife.

Moreover, this will never pass the smell test but looks great in the 'pandering column'.

and for his next trick, chokee will ban pot holes and water leaks.

8:10 you say this from inside experience regarding Cops being “not very smart” and “never in charge”? I suggest you have nothing but superficial and, at best, anecdotal observations from the outside and have little if any idea of what you speak. I think you are butt hurt from having your beer poured out on a parking lot before being run off by the PoPo.

Jackson MS has always been a CESSPOOL from day one same political waste like back in the days same smell just a different color and keep living your sweet home town will be next.

I've done IT work for several law enforcement agencies, city, state and federal. I can assure you that an IQ test is not a prerequisite for a career in law enforcement. Combine that with a very low standard for leadership skills and you have the issues we are facing today.

Kingfish,

Will you please show some respect for the office and refer to Mayor Lumumba with the title and dignity deserving of his position? We all know it pains racists to do this for African-Americans who have been elected.

Thank you,
-The Citizens of Jackson

Kingfish said...

Oh shut up. I refer to Mayor Mary as The Queen. Mayor McGhee gets called Gene. I try to keep the headlines to one line only when possible. Governor's get called by their first names all the time on this website as well.

Go cry somewhere else, assuming this was not a troll job.

Hell, I couldn't get past the first "whereas" without laughing out loud. Baby Chocke states what his goals are and lists several --- ALL of which he has failed at and are getting worse rather than even holding their own. (And after the joke administration of Tony Yarber and what he left him, to say its getting worse is a mouthfull!)

Anonymous said...

Good to see Antard focused on the stuff that matters.

This certainly is not a priority:

Close to six billion gallons of minimally treated sewage made its way to the Pearl between January and March from the overflowed lagoons of the city's Savanna Wastewater Treatment Facility, reports show.

Another 476,541,680 gallons of raw sewage leaked into the Pearl River from the city's West Bank Interceptor, the primary wastewater collector for Jackson, according to quarterly reports.

This extraordinary Mayor needs to ban this.

I wish protesters would ride with a cop for a day or two & deal with the people that cops do. It would change some things. It looks easy from the outside, but I can’t imagine walking in their shoes.

@8:06. The Roman Emperors surrounded themselves with the Praetorian Guard. They feared reprisal from the citizens and even then the guard took out a few leaders as politic dictated.

Anonymous said...

3:45, the mayor has done absolutely nothing by issuing this order. Everything he said already exists in most police departments policy. It’s all covered in basic training at the law enforcement academy. Officers are taught to only use force when necessary. Hog tying and chokeholds have never been allowed. This not an example of leadership. It’s an example of ignorance. Idiots like you think this is new and creative. Its been common practice in law enforcement for more than 30 years. The problem we are seeing with a few bad apples in law enforcement are due to self control. Wake up and smell the BS.

Anonymous said...

My primary issue with law enforcement, is they do not get rid of bad LEOs. Those unions go out of their way to protect their own, pretty much like any other good ol' boy system in this country. If they would hold bad cops accountable, then we wouldn't necessary have these issues.

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.
