I think that's a good statement - just the facts.

Nicely Done RPD... simple statement of the facts, and leave it at that.

Burke said...

Thanks for the update. Confirms that the "Shouting Guy" was incorrect in his assumption that the cop was doing something besides his job. It's regrettable that there is good reason for such assumptions, but for now there are legitimate efforts being made to address the problem.

However legitimate those efforts, real change will likely take several more generations. Tribalism runs deep.

Was he wearing a mask?

Me thinks this thug should have committed this act on the other side of County Line Road. Chances are that the Ridgeland court will sentence this fella to more than a couple of years for assault on a LEO. No blessings to had for this one.

The officer involved is a super nice guy that has been very vocal against police brutality and the killing of George Floyd. Glad no one was seriously Injured.

Running from a cop always arouses the suspicion of "why." If you don't want to be treated like a criminal, (a) don't act like a criminal, and (b)comply with the requests the officer is legally allowed to give.

It's actually pretty simple, and if you'll do those things, you're almost guaranteed to avoid any unpleasant interactions with the police.......even if you ARE a criminal.

KF, please let us know if it turns out Mr. Luckett was wanted and/or had a prior criminal record.

Expired license late? How did it evolve into physical conduct by officer and driver. Not a good look for RPD.

It is unfortunate that the police are now being scrutinized as criminals, and criminals are being made to be the victims.

Prayers for all law enforcement. Everyday things are getting more dangerous for them because of the mob mentality that now exists against them.

When did it become ok to defy authority? When did it become ok for crowds to get involved and to interfere with the work of law enforcement?

Expired tag and no proof of insurance = citation with a fine (which will most likely be dismissed once evidence of the new tag and proof of insurance is produced)

Aggravated assault on a police officer and all of the other shit he did = life ruined (rurnt for those in Niknar) serious prison time, because why??

How about quit acting like assholes???

I know the officer involved in the fight very well. He is very much against police brutality and is not a racist in the least bit.

He is a good young man that was doing his job.

"Expired license late? How did it evolve into physical conduct by officer and driver. Not a good look for RPD." I assume that since you wrote this drivel you can read. If not, get someone to read it to you.

Charges of Expired License Plate, Careless Driving and No Proof of Insurance are treated a moving violations with the driver being released to continue on. Now, the acting out like an ass is his problem. Oh well, guess he had nothing better to do that night, or at least for the next few nights.

3:13 Read the report. All your questions will be answered.

2:57 It's like Chris Rock said, if the police have to chase you down you know they're bringing as ass whoopin with them.

A busted skull and six staples from a local medical clinic over a damn expired tag ?

Typical Ridgeland Police.

Don't get me wrong. I have to buy a tag, and so should everyone else.

But still . . . all this shit over a damn tag ?

Hell, I'm a late 50's White man that got pulled over by a smart ass "20 something" white Ridgeland Cop a few years ago.

I was the only vehicle traveling north on Old Canton north of Lake Harbour. (Around 7 AM on a Sunday morning).

Lil' cop didn't "think" I was wearing a seatbelt.

I was.

It was tan colored, and I was wearing a camo shirt. Guess what . . . all the damn colors blended together.

No wonder he didn't see my seatbelt.

Lil' ass hole didn't give me a ticket, but he had to turn on all his (blue lights) . . . activate his "yelp" siren . . . and embarrass the hell out of me.

I'm all for supporting Law Enforcement, but Police reform needs to start in Ridgeland, Mississippi.

Well the good news is that a new state flag is on the way and all this behavior will end. These type of criminals will start behaving now that the old oppressive flag is gone.

Also announced today, the SEC is having their football championship here in Jackson Memorial Stadium in 2023!

5:07 - cool story bro, but it smells like bullshit to me.

How come you don't hear more about Chief Neal...because he does his job like the thoughtful, quiet (quite, for y'all in Niknar) professional he is.

Think of what he and his officers have to deal with...apartments jammed full of illegals, transitional neighborhoods, $30,000 millionaires (look it up), entitled wannabe socialites and thugs on their way to and from Jackson/Canton.

God bless him and his officers.

Isn’t there a grace period on car tags due to Covd-19?

Well 8:27, it might smell like fresh fried Penn's catfish to you, but whatever.

The RPD created their reputation without any help.

An expired tag was about a $200 fine.

Add six staples for the cop's skull and the cost of incarceration for the thug, and the citizens of Madison County have spent thousands since Saturday.

All over a damn expired car tag.

Kingfish said...

It was not over an expired car tag. The suspect fled the traffic stop. That put him on the police radar.

For example, we had a chase recently in Rankin County. It turned out the suspect was a killer recently released from prison. He had several years left on his sentence, thus he was probably scared of going back.

The cops don't know who this guy is or what his history is when he flees. Might be a guy who freaks or as in Rankin, he might be a released killer.

They saw him at the Shell and tried to arrest him. He knew damn good and well the police were looking for him. He started throwing down with the officer immediately.

This was more than just an expired tag. His behavior put him in this position.

Anonymous said...

This officer used incredible restraint. When the thug was choking him and slamming his head in to a brick column, the officer would have been justified in using deadly force. 100 percent of the blame for the predicament the suspect finds himself in is his own fault. Had he simply complied with the commands of the officer, like anybody with sense would have, he would have been given the tickets and been on his way.

Anonymous said...

So, to recap 5:07's thought process: The suspect was blue lighted for a chargeable offense - an expired tag. Instead of pulling over, the suspect fled the scene at a high rate of speed. Since the only known violations at this point were expired tag, ignoring a police officer's intent to detain, fleeing, speeding, reckless driving and endangering the public safety...the officer should have just said, "What the hell...it's just an expired tag" and backed off.

Does that about sum it up, 5:07?

@9:52, so which laws would you like to stop enforcing? Just letting these infractions go emboldens the criminal element; take a look at major cities that have decriminalized minor offenses, they are literal shitholes (lookin' at you San Fran) and have become incredibly unsafe.

I visit New York very often for work, and in the past 6 years I have seen the rapid decline of the condition of the city, and I attribute this to Warren Wilhelm Jr's systematic dismantling of the building blocks of law and order in the city.

"I attribute this to Warren Wilhelm Jr."

Yet another Dem pol who has a Communist-leaning family (many of whom have or had public-sector careers), an expensive liberal arts education, and never held a private-sector job. Nobody of any political leaning seems surprised when members of the second and third generations in a family of farmers, plumbers, builders, lawyers, doctors, etc., follows in the family profession and yet, when De Blasio turns out to be a far-left-wing incompetent kook who wants a public tit to suckle, it takes many by complete surprise.

PS - take a hint, Jackson voters...

Expect instances like this to become common everyday occurrences-

6:43 and 8:33, yes and Chokwe is following Comrade de Blasio's playbook nearly to the letter. He even gave his wife a pile of money like de Blasio did (not quite the $900 Million Chirlane got) for some bullshit social program that has no mission, metrics or accountability - show me the money Comrades!

9:52 They got a criminal off the street. Priceless.

3:13 you know exactly the responsible party for this encounter escalating to where it did and it ISN'T the police officer! Defending a criminal places you in question.

Everyone seems to be missing the point.

By all means, issue a citation to every driver in violation of state/local laws.

But the RPD has a long history of being overly aggressive.

Just saying RPD might need to change their methods before they become the spotlight of MSNBC, CNN and such.

Such publicity is sure to interfere with Mayor McGee's latest bicycle trail plan.

Anonymous said...

Right on, 8:34. It's overly aggressive to pursue a vehicle that's already broken five municipal laws. And it's overly aggressive to practice restraint in a ground battle with a hoodlum who has fought and injured a police officer.

What methods, other than standing down would you suggest the PD put in place?

If you are not a criminal, don’t act like a criminal, and the police will leave you alone.

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.
