Suspect Arrested in Angel Destruction

Natchez police arrested a suspect in the toppling of the renowned Turning Angel statue in Natchez City Cemetery.  The Natchez Democrat reported:

A Crosby man was arrested in connection with the toppling of the Turning Angel monument at the Natchez City Cemetery early Tuesday morning.

Austin Petty, 20, was charged with malicious mischief over $25,000....

 Video from Tuesday shortly after 1 a.m. shows a white SUV pull up with Petty and other occupants. Petty jumped out of the SUV and went over to the Turning Angel monument. The front seat occupants remained in the vehicle. The rear driver’s side occupant jumped out and yelled at Petty not do anything stupid. The occupants state that Austin began to rock the Turning Angel when it fell over... Rest of article., Video of press conference.
The police department said the vandalism had nothing to do with any protest or national controversies.  The well-known Angel inspired the novel Turning Angel by Gregi Iles.

Kingfish note: This website brought up Shaun King's post in the original post Wednesday.  No apologies are made because it was reasonable speculation.  King made some rather inflammatory tweets Tuesday that received widespread coverage.  There is an epidemic of statute destruction in America right now and King poured more gas on the fire as he encourage people to tear down Christian statues and stained glass windows.   Perhaps he should be more judicious in his comments if he doesn't want to be blamed for encouraging such acts. Earlier post.

So it was a stupid malicious white boy? Very typical. And also typical of Kingfish to first blame then civil rights movement and then offer no apology.
Shaun King is a Civil Rights Leader and deserves respect.

What are you white boys so scared of? Don't you have enough power, attention, and wealth? Cant stand to share a little?

At least this POS is over 18, so he can face this like a man. He needs to serve a sentence that is appropriate to the dollar value in his crime.

As for any who would encourage desecration of Christian statues, etc., I hope only bad things happen to you.

Like so many others, lead astray by the BLM mob.

Not so fast, there, 9:06. I'm confident you're aware of the number of young, uneducated, unemployed white boys who participate in BLM and Antifa destruction. You SHOULD be; the rest of America is.

Are you talking about the 'civil rights leader' who stated on Fox two nights ago that 'We fixin' to burn this place down' or is that another 'civil rights leader'. That's leadership for sho.

Shaun King deserves respect? This guy is a grifter accused of improper use of funds by multiple charities he founded. He is notorious for making accusations that are not only unfounded but also directly disproven by videos of the event. He calls for the destruction of Christian statutes and stained glass windows that depict Jesus as white. He earned the name Talcum X from both white and black groups because his birth certificate shows both parents as white. His excuse is that his mother lied on the birth certificate while refusing genetic/dna testing. You may choose to respect anyone you wish but defending mediocrity begets mediocrity.

9:11, "As for any who would encourage desecration of Christian statues, etc., I hope only bad things happen to you." Is that your Christianity speaking?

Pretty reckless to blame this on “hoodlums” who were acting at the direction of Shaun King. Maybe KF will learn something from this. There is an epidemic of inflammatory and baseless accusations being leveled at the African American community and KF should be ashamed. The original title of his article was correct, this is shameful.

I don't understand why people in an identity crisis feel so qualified to lead everyone else, and why anyone would fall in line behind them. I think we need more/better discernment in selecting those by whom we would be led.

Hold my beer and watch this.

Shaun King is a racist douch bag.

11:09. Hey thumper, I think he/she was addressing your so called Christian attitude of condemnation.

Time for some Old Testament Christianity on this white boy.

All that good “Ole Miss” education down the drain!

Shaun King is representative of nobody and probably couldn't get past a psychiatric evaluation.

Sadly, the left and right are listening to such crazy people who are deliberately uneducated and emotionally damaged.

If his sentence includes community service, he should be required to mow the grass at the cemetery with a push mower and weed-eat around all of the tombstones and monuments during the heat of the day for the rest of the growing season. What a POS loser.

Old Testament "Christianity" you say? Are you high?

Speaking of Greg Iles. He's a liberal pos. Heard him do a national interview couple years ago where he called Phil Bryant and all Republicans kkk and white supremacist. Any conservative who buys his books should be shamed.

I too believe that "there is an epidemic of statute destruction in America right now."

Predictable. Black folks don’t mess around at the cemetery.

Those of you who blamed the actions of Dyllan Roof on The Confederacy ought to be willing to stand back until it's revealed what mindset precipitated this boy's actions. You can bet your ass it was not The Confederacy.

I just checked the Adams County Jail's inmate roster, and the punk Petty is still there - being held on a foreign fugitive warrant. So this is not his first rodeo - he's in trouble in another jurisdiction as well.

2:31 - What are the chances he's wanted in connection with Antifa efforts in another jurisdiction?

From what I understand from friends in Natchez, this Petty character is a board flipper at a local lumber company and likes helling around on his four-wheeler. Not exactly the Antifa type - just a stupid redneck.

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.
