I don’t know Colonel Maxwell but now MBN has bonafide LEO in charge instead of that idiot John Dowdy who never graduated from any law enforcement academy. I hope Colonel Maxwell can clean up Dowdy’s mess.

Maxwell is a good pick. He was never ruined by Dowdy and has competence, job knowledge, sincerity, and humility. Necessary qualities when leading that rogue agency back to the light.

Not a word in all that regarding his stance regarding racial injustices committed by law enforcement. How will he be any different from the rest of the tentacles of institutional white supremacy?

1:24 - There's only one thing that breathes life into the theory of white supremacy - And that is the feeling of black inferiority that has been taught and coached for generations - and that is based on a lie. Nobody is inferior and those who have told you (in church, school, training, employment or the home) is either misleading you based on their ignorance or is outright lying to you for personal enrichment.

Did you bother to check the color of his skin or are you just being an internet tough guy?

@1:24, really? Not EVERYTHING is about race, this is simply and appointment announcement.

Give it a rest...and best of luck to Col. Maxwell.

Looks to me like the era of Feel B and his lackeys may be over; with this replacement at MBN, following the two great appointments to head DPS and MDOC, (not to mention the end of Feel's corruption at MDHS) it appears that Tater intends to clean up those messes and stop them for the future.

Wish him well, but I wonder exactly what good they have been doing lately.

Feel said, on Gallo, yesterday, "My job now is to stay out of the way, but, I used to be a deputy sheriff and it's a good thing I wasn't there when they harassed those people at the convention".

He's Bad-Ass, I'm tellin' y'all!

"He's Bad-Ass, I'm tellin' y'all!"

Don't underestimate the former Guv.
He caries two chainsaws in his truck.

One never knows when a tornado might touch down in Yazoo.
Or at least that's what he told Gallo back in 2009.

Lack of accountability, greed, corruption, incompetence, and generally-bad government seems to flourished mightily on Pheel's watch. Screw him and the horse he rode in on.

And yet Philbilly was given 8 years to govern, despite the "lack of accountability, greed, corruption, incompetence, and generally-bad government."

What does that say about us?

Isn't this the same guy that's been the acting director since Howdy Dowdys been gone? Isn't MBN a total shit show? Same director different day.

Does anyone think this is going to make any difference? Drugs run the County I live in, the 2 counties above, on each side and below. Every Sheriff knows what is going on in his county. Some dealers thrive, some keep getting hit, until they move on. The Tallahatchie Sheriff only got 6 years in a plea deal. Pretty good odds for how long he was in business...

JACKSON, Miss. — Federal authorities say a Mississippi sheriff gave protection for years to a drug dealer who robbed other dealers and kicked back stolen money and drug profits to the lawman.

The illegal partnership began about 15 years ago when Tallahatchie County Sheriff William Brewer — who resigned Tuesday — began helping a then-teenage drug dealer, federal officials allege in a sworn statement .

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
