Just got word inmate stabbed to death at Parchman on U32 today. I think that is death row which would be maximum security.

Update: Now reported by all media outlets. Leaving this post up due to good comment. see below.

I feel the reason behind all of this is due sacrifices. Chris Epps has allowed more tax payers money to go down the drain. He has spent tons of it refurbishing this unit and that unit for the sake of accreditation from the American Correctionaal Association, which ammounts to nothing when it comes down to it. Those units that have been refurbished have since been closed down. Which makes NO sense. It is all a "smoke screen". He has sacrificed funding for professional Correctional Officers for giving other employees at headquaters raises. He creates positions with top salaries and the people he ensures to get those positions, bottom line, have little or no responsibilities. Mr. Epps spending habits make the "Beef Plant" seem very!! small. That given has created more morale problems within the agency anyone could ever imagine. I feel sorry for the true and good employees of the agency. He also "ran off" wonderful employees for no other reason than the fact he did not like them and did not go along with his unethical methods of running the agency.

It was Hargon. If there was one prisoner in the entire penitentiary system I wouldn't shed any tears for, that's him. Maybe that makes me a monster, but anyone who would murder his brother, sister-in-law, and 4-year-old nephew under any circumstances, much less for money, is a walking argument for capital punishment (which I do oppose).

There should be an investigation so people who aren't quite down to his level of Hell don't get hurt, but I feel slightly more sorry for Jeffrey Dahmer getting killed in prison than I do for this guy.

As an interested observer and native Delta resident, I have to wonder, again and again, what is happening at Parchman? Incident after incident, even in maximum security areas during lockdowns. I am baffled as to how this can happen. A Mr. Crocker just commented, on television, that "...it's just in the nature..." of prisons for these things to happen [my interpretation]. I think the public deserves an explanation.

O man!!! If epps would only give up his "expense account". Jeez he could be using that money to feed a few officers, who make nothing and have to feed families. heard epps takes "certain employees" out for so called "working lunches", which last nearly all afternoon long.

RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!! heard National Institute of Corrections is coming to investigate gang activity. Epps has known about that for years. Least since 1995. They had some kinda gang validation going on up there at Parchman. Could have been other places too.

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.
