WLBT questions Crisler shooting

WLBT story and video, includes copies of original news stories

Well, well, well. WLBT investigated Ward 6 councilman and mayoral candidate Marshand Crisler's claim about being shot in 1993. Jackson Jambalaya first questioned the circumstances surrounding his shooting. WLBT did a decent job in covering the story and was able to get Crisler to admit he was the unidentified deputy mentioned in news stories regarding the incident in 1993:

"Crisler says authorities arrested Anthony Dixon and charged him with aggravated assault.
Hinds County Sheriff Malcolm McMillin never released the name of the deputy who was shot.
The incident was one of three cases that were under investigation after reports of evidence-tampering.
Former Hinds County Sheriff Officer Scott Turner, who pled guilty to charges in a separate case, testified about the April 2nd shooting. He said "I stated the evidence was found in the defendant's right, front pocket. The defendant in that case did not possess crack cocaine. All he did was shoot my partner in the chest."
Crisler confirmed that he and Turner were, in fact, partners.
Crisler told WLBT news authorities later recovered 14 kilos of cocaine in a highway stop that they believe were headed for Metro Manor Apartments

Actually Mr. Crisler, not so fast, because there are still a few questions that need to be answered.
1. You state Mr. Dixon was charged with aggravated assault. The April 1993 Clarion-Ledger story said he was charged with a drug charge and attempted murder. Which is it? You managed to leave out the fact the drug charged was dropped because the evidence was fabricated. Which leads to the second question.

2. What exactly did happen to the attempted murder or aggravated assault charge against Mr. Dixon? Was he prosecuted? Did he serve any time? If not, then why not?

3. Reliable sources have told me the raid was conducted on the wrong apartment. What Crisler stated was drugs were headed to the complex, not that particular apartment. Make no mistake, the guy who shot Crisler was probably a scumbag and a p.o.s., however, Crisler is the one who decided to use his shooting for political gain. So the question must be asked: is the address in the warrant the same as the house that was raided?

4. Was Crisler present or did he have any knowledge of his partner, Scott Turner, planting drugs on Mr. Dixon?

Crisler can use his shooting to his advantage all he wants (never mind how tacky and cheap such a trick is). However the fact remains he does not get his story straight on what the shooter was charged with, the fact no drugs were found, and that his partner admitted planting drugs on the shooter.

There are a couple of internet trolls that are eating crow right now as they accused me of smearing Crisler and fabricating most of my story.

TIRED said...

1. I am not supporting Marshand Crisler, I am supporting Senator Horhn.

2. The lowlife piece of shi# that sent the scum bag bottom feeding piece of crap NE Jackson "gotcha" on Marshand's "sex life as police chief" , whether true or not, needs to be de-nutted.

3. This is EXACTLY WHY good people don't run for office. The wierdos with no life, that spend their day spreading crap on the internet and anonymously, meaning only to hurt, and never making the world a "little bit better", in a word....SUCK.

Kingfish said...

On 2, I know exactly what you are talking about and its crap. It was shopped to several radio talk shows and they all turned it down.

As for questioning the shooting, he is the one who decided to use it so its fair game.

TIRED makes no sense. They must be tired. Blaming anonymous people on the Internet as the barrier keeping good people from running for office is quite lame.

TIRED said...

It may be "lame" in your view, 11:04, but get your head out of the sand and join the real world. Good people DON'T RUN for office due to the unwarranted and seedy inquisition thrust upon those simply trying to make a difference.

Don't believe it? Ask around. Then break your arm patting YOURSELF on the back for the "good" that some mindless anonymous bloggers give the world.

Kingfish said...

Excuse me? It was Crisler who brought up his shooting and decided to use it for his own benefit? There's not a damn thing wrong with questioning it when he does it.

TIRED. Name one person, just one, who decided not to run for office because of bloggers. Just one. You won't, you can't. Keep grinding that grist. Someone, somewhere, somehow will step up and commiserate with you.

Kingfish said...

Tired, stay on point. What exactly is wrong about questioning Crisler about his shooting since he decided to use it for his advantage?

Who knew that the KF wanted HJJ as mayor! Way to go, four more years of do nothing in Jacktown!

Regardless of the circumstances, crisler did take a bullet and he was out fighting crime. Soldiers die from friendly fire all the time and they are still heros fighting for America. Can't say that much for any other candidate.

Kingfish said...

Crisler was a member of a rogue unit that was planting drugs on suspects. You can spin that any way you like.

I'm not endorsing Harvey for Mayor either. He had his chance.

and Crisler also sponsored the motion to let Jackson get into these suicideal interest rate swaps a few weeks ago. that alone is enough to disqualify him.

I've not seen KF indicate anywhere that he planned to vote for Harvey Johnson. Good try.

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.
