Bully Indicted for Murder

A Hinds County grand jury indicted Greta Brown-Bully for the murder of Larry "Caveman" Lee on April 24.

The indictment includes counts of first degree murder, drive-by shooting, and evidence tampering.  Bully is co-owner of Bully's Restaurant and co-owner of the Toast & Sip Package Store in Jackson.   Lee was a local neighborhood bum.  She is the daughter of Hinds County Constable John Brown.

Will justice prevail or is this simply for show? Those are the only two alternatives.

I have a serious question, since I've never been on a Grand Jury and am not an attorney. Are the race and name of alleged perpetrators known to members of the grand jury at the time of presentation and deliberation?

If they are, would it not make more sense to simply have them decide based on the alleged facts in the case and the charges?

to 10:35................a DA will advise a grand jury of anything if he wants an indictment bad enough .

I’m under the impression that, on the night in question, Mrs. Bully feared for her life.

Anyone else under the same impression?

10:35 Not quite sure what your question is, but I'll give my experience as a member of a grand jury.

The district attorney got up and presented the charges and went over the evidence in the case. In most instances a law enforcement officer got up to testify as to what their investigation had uncovered. Sometimes the alleged victim told us direct what they had experienced.

The name of the accused was provided as that is how the case was titled (State of Mississippi vs. John Doe), but things like age, race, sex, etc. weren't deliberately given to us. We could figure it out sometimes from the evidence (surveillance pictures for example) or from the testimony (the officer might say "I observed a black male, approximately 6 foot tall, that matched the suspect description").

In none of the cases I participated in did the accused appear before the grand jury. We were told we would only hear from the prosecution, this was not a trial, and all we were to do was decide if there was enough evidence to go to trial. Race was not a factor, but identifying the accused's race was in some cases inevitable.

to 10:35....................10:55 is right..........add to that mississippi grand jury proceedings are not transcribed as they are in the federal system and some states so there is no way to prove who said what.

Constable Brown seems to have a few broken limbs on the old family tree.

As a lawyer, I can say this would be a fun case to defend. Stopping a conviction through hung jury or acquittal is definitely possible.

This reminds me of the case Tom Fortner got an acquittal in several years ago. A convenience store owner shot a fleeing thief who had stolen beer. The thief died. Tom's primary theme was self defense as the thief allegedly turned to point something at the owner, but his other goal was jury nullification. People were sick and tired of businesses in Jackson constantly getting robbed. Tom's plan worked.

Same general themes could work for defending Ms. Bully.

Good luck finding a jury of her peers that doesn't patronize her businesses.

"I have a serious question, since I've never been on a Grand Jury and am not an attorney. Are the race and name of alleged perpetrators known to members of the grand jury at the time of presentation and deliberation?" At most Grand Jury presentations all facts are read including race/gender, etc of the suspect and victim, unless decided prior to reading not to do so.

"I’m under the impression that, on the night in question, Mrs. Bully feared for her life." The one problem is that it was recorded, I believe, that after the initial shooting, she retired from the scene, then possibly reloaded returning to continue the shoot. Leaving the scene would indicate, to a reasonable person (love that phrase), the threat was gone at that point and she could retreat safely. Returning to the scene, with a supposedly reloaded weapon then shooting the now victim, brings up the question of an assault on her part.

Did she make sure one of the two witnesses couldn't give testimony? Inquiring minds want to know.

12:28, I’m a white guy from Clinton. I patronize her business. Food is really good!

@1:51. My bet is that you'll be able to go back there after the Covid fright is over.

I live in Jackson and have never set foot inside Bully's. Pick me for the jury! Good luck convincing me that you inside of a car, needed to shoot someone. Just drive away.

Tommi Green will be the judge, John Browns friend and she will walk away, and will kill again.. The intrested part is how could Green take it, when she is always with the Browns at social events.

@4:44 PM - you don't know that about "let 'em loose" Green. Circuit Judge Faye Peterson has already recused herself, likely due to a conflict. That will put the other judges on notice.

Wooten recused herself as well.

Constable Brown does not have the same power that he once had.

If he did, this would have never made "the news".

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.
