No More Blessings for Barak Patton

Barak Patton will get no more coddling in Hinds County after Hinds County District Attorney Jody Owens opened a can of whoop-ass on the little hoodlum.  The D.A. got indictments on everything for Patton after his cases collected dust for years.

Patton is the nephew of well-connected Hinds County Constable John Brown.  Brown is a public official who makes no bones throwing his weight around or playing politics.  Patton has been arrested for shooting people, robbing stores at gunpoint, beating clerks, and possessing stolen firearms with nary a day to face justice.  The police repeatedly arrest him only to see the former D.A. and judges work together to keep him out of prison.  Whether they do so through incompetence, negligence, or through intentional acts is known only to them. 

Police arrested Patton in January for shooting and robbing a man in Clinton. There is no indictment nor an order binding him over to a grand jury.  It is as if the arrest never happened.  He sat in jail with a high bond until May. Circuit Judge Tomie Green reduced his bond to $10,000 and placed him under house arrest on May 22, 2020.  Patton allegedly raped a 14 year-old girl a week later.

District Attorney Jody Owens said enough is enough and successfully got Judge  Green to revoke his bond on June 2.  Mr. Owens became aware of the earlier arrests, collected their files, and presented them all to the grand jury in July.

The grand jury returned indictments for no less than four separate cases.  It is easier to cover each case individually so for the reader's sake, they are posted below in such a fashion.

Forcible Rape

The grand jury indicted Patton for forcible rape  and sexual battery of a 14 year-old child.   Law enforcement sources said he was allegedly strangling her during the rape. The case is assigned to Judge Adrienne Whooten. The alleged rape took place just a few days after Judge Tomie Green released him from jail. 

January 2020 Armed Robbery & Aggravated Assault

The grand jury indicted Patton on July 10 for two armed robberies and aggravated assault that took place on January 1, 2020.  The indictment accuses Patton of shooting and robbing Clark Taylor.  The case is assigned to Judge Green.  Although arrested in January, he was not even bound over to the grand jury. 

2018 Clinton Crime Spree

 Clinton police arrested Patton and three accomplices for allegedly robbing several convenience stores over two years ago. February 2018 post on robberies. No indictments took place on the case until this month. 

(First Indictment) Patton and his posse (Javien Palmer, Robert Kelly, and Roderick Carter) robbed their way through Clinton convenience stores in early 2018.  The grand jury indicted him July 10 for armed robbery and conspiracy.  The case is assigned to Circuit Judge William Kidd.  

(Second Indictment) The grand jury indicted Patton on July 10 for armed robbery and conspiracy for  allegedly robbing two convenience stores at gunpoint in early 2018.  The case is assigned to Circuit Judge Adrienne Wooten.
Possession of a Stolen Firearm

The grand jury indicted Patton on May 16, 2018 for possessing a stolen firearm in September 2017.  The case is assigned to Judge Green.  The case has been continued numerous times.  It just sits there.... doing nothing..... doing its best impersonation of a Sopranos no-show. 

Aggravated Assault

Patton started his criminal career with a bang - literally.  The grand jury indicted him for aggravated assault in May 2018 after he allegedly shot someone  in September 2016 (Notice how long it is taking Patton to get indicted on these cases?).  The case is assigned to Judge Tomie Green.   The case has been repeatedly continued as it collects several inches of dust. 

Kingfish note: Some readers will want to blame Judge Green for blessing Patton and make no mistake, she deserves part of the blame.  A large part of it.  If she had not turned a man loose, a man arrested multiple times for shooting, robbing, and beating others, the young girl would not have suffered this rape.  That is something Tomie Green will have to live with on her conscience.

However, much blame goes to former District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith.  Several years passed before Patton was indicted in some cases while he wasn't indicted in others.  There is no reason why he should not have been indicted by now for the 2018 Clinton crime spree.

This thug is related to a well-known constable and the late Judge Houston Patton.  He has been repeatedly caught, blessed, and released only to commit even more savage acts each time.  If freed, it will be a safe bet that one day we will read about him committing one, if not more, murder.

Note #2: Blessing? What do we mean by "blessing"?

Jody Took campaign contributions from George Soros, that's all I need to know.

Judge Green is a joke! She should be removed and her law license revoked. She is one of the problems in Jackson and Hinds county. People will continue to flee out of Jackson as long as nitwits like this are judges.

I’m confused by this too. I thought Soros only funds DA who don’t put criminals behind bars. What am i missing?

Burke said...

You go, Jody. You've got the brains and the guts to make some big changes. This turnaround is particularly welcome.

I'll dream big: with a competent DA, the Judges may be able to improve their performance as well.

Green Acres said...

Yes, thank you, Jody. Enough is enough.

Thomas Gentry said...

As did Mississippi 16th Judicial District Attorney Scott Colom. Colom was a former staff member of the Commercial-Dispatchnewspaper and claims to have never heard of
George Soros.
The Mississippi Attorney General should force DA Colom to show the exculpatory evidence that convinced him to release the four defendants charged in the shotgun slaying of
a local gas station attendant. The 4-county-4 were held in the Noxubee county jails for over five years without trial.
Colom claims that cellphone Tower evidence puts the four defendants elsewhere during the murder.In a county that is 90 percent African-American, the victim and the four defendants are caucasian.

You can’t win in Hinds county unless you are liberal. Good for Jody for using Soros money to get elected and still trying to clean up this war zone.

If Jody wants to deal with non-violent offenders through programs or alternatives to sentencing, whatever. Go for it.

But as long as he'll go after thugs like this fearlessly, he's gonna have my and a lot of other people's support.

I'm giving him a chance.

"That is something Tomie Green will have to live with on her conscience."

Joke's oh you. Based upon Judge Green's current and former actions, she lacks a conscience.

My first thought was this is for Barak Patton's protection.

No doubt there are quite a few family and friends of the little 14 year old girl that will probably go beyond medieval on Mister Barak Patton should the find him on the streets.

Anonymous said...

So what's the story with Robert Shuler Smith?

Anonymous said...

i thought the new DA was supposed to be soft on crime.

he's looking like hes actually tough on violent crimes...just like he said he would be. and he's a Democrat. my, my, my. its as if the little R or D doesnt really mean that much...

i'm fine with 'smokey joe' not going to prison for 4 years for smoking a little weed if thugs like this actually serve time..

Kingfish said...

Showing up for work actually helps.

Barak, can you say, bye mama. I love you.

I'm pretty sure The Mississippi Commission of Judicial Performance wouldn't find enough to remove her from the Bench. Granted she has done many things any reasonable person finds objectionable, but she hasn't, that I can see and research, done anything blatantly illegal. We, and I am in this group, may not like her decisions and her use of the Bail/Bond system, but she is within her right as a Judge. I also do not see Master Patton being convicted on all counts, as the political system/structure in MS and Hinds County will play a significant part of the pending trial. Now I do believe that RSS should have been impeached and dis-barred for his conduct in not just young Master Barak's action, but that of others of his ilk.

I must agree with you on this issue. What I find, for lack of a better phrase, why has this not already happened to this member of the Youth Ministry of Jackson?

Fan Dango said...

There's indictments, and then there's convictions. I have zero confidence that a Jackson jury will convict him -- especially if the victims where white.

Now that's a great question.
Private practice I would guess.

(And I didn't say anything about eyebrows).

Fry this buzzard. What i don't get... all the cons have a reputation for laying out jailhouse justice for those who abuse children or women. Why is there no street justice for the same? He's obviously well known in the community for being a violent fiend...A rapist of a child wouldn't last a week in jail. Why do "the streets" let him continue on this path?

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.
