Woo Hoo! I made the list! I figured if I lived in this town long enough, I would finally get some recognition! (dammit)

Two Dogs said...

This is not looking good.

Anonymous said...

something seems odd.

I'm probably way wrong, but it feels that many of the same crimes and locations were also on the report the week before

Anonymous said...

505. Umm yeah. Notice the patterns. Shocking ain't it. Kind of like me knowing and predicting that week in and week out the eggs and milk are going to be located in the same places at Brookshires.

Anonymous said...

That's why many informed Jackson folks aren't really scared about crime. We know that it happens, but it generally happens over and over in limited locations between people who know one another. Now if I was in those areas, I would live in fear.

Two Dogs said...

912, you obviously did not pay close attention to the list. These are totally spread over the whole city, maybe the armed robbery is somewhat limited, but property crimes are mostly in the wealthier areas. The addresses are listed.

Lots of problems downtown. Reports of cars being broken into on the uptick.

Anonymous said...

If you consider 5 incidents "lots", then maybe...

Two Dogs said...

I counted 16 on the list south of Fortification, just saying. That does not include Belhaven NOR Fondren.

But, it just must be my perception.

Anonymous said...

Quiet TD. The downtowners don't want the news to get out that their special precinct set up by their special police chief isn't working.

Anonymous said...

Well, Two Dogs, according to KF, just last week (maybe the week before) he considered downtown as south of High Street, north of South Street, west of I-55, and east of Gallatin. And no, Fondren NOR Belhaven are part of downtown. So yes, it is your "perception" that is the problem.

Two Dogs said...

My favorite part about Jackson bringing back Harvey Johnson is that he is talking about revisiting the Maple-Linder study based on a population almost DOUBLE of what it was ten years ago. Cute.

Why not just hire one police officer for every person in Jackson? Wouldn't that work to reduce crime?

Anonymous said...

Now go back and try counting again Mr. Architect - y'all never were very good with numbers anyway.

Two Dogs said...

Anon, 1223, like I stated, that is south of Fortification, there is only ONE of those that I counted between High and Fortification.

I was WRONG, 15 then. That is only three times what Anon 1118 stated, using KF's standards. Math is hard. Reading is FUNDAMENTAL.

Two Dogs said...

And I missed the KF reference to what he considered to be "downtown."

Anonymous said...

If you want bad with numbers then look no further than current and former Jackson city council members.

But we've got some damn nice artificial turf at Smith-Wills.

Kingfish said...

It was a couple of weeks ago but generally speaking I consider downtown to be I-55 to Gallatin and High Street to South or Silas brown (behind the P.O. ). If someone wants to consider Fortification the northern boundary I'm cool with that because I dont' consider Belhaven Heights to be DT but the part where Byrd's office, Two Sisters, etc to be downtown however.

Two Dogs said...

KF, your description is about like mine, I generally consider the old Hilton to be in downtown since they moved the HHS in the building.

I would not consider Fenian's to be downtown though.

Taylor39211 said...

PLEASE. You MUST stop. We're going to LOSE another CONGRESSIONAL district if you keep talking about CRIME.

Two Dogs said...

HA! Do we really want those people from Jackson VOTING?

Disclaimer because of the litigiousness of this conversation: I want to state that I included two blocks west of Gallatin, because a maintenance facility of JPSD is there. I do not want to be UNCLEAR in my personal assessment and conception of the "downtown" area. (I hereby take ownership of comments made only by ME.)

Kingfish said...

Besides, downtown is not a set of boundaries but is rather a place, a mindset, a paradise where all your problems just fade away, its a type of wellness, a state of being, something you can't find anywhere else, a place where the rapper and the lawyer can lay down together in peace......

... and blow smoke up people's asses guided by their zen proctologist Master DJP Po.

Anonymous said...

Yes, it's nice to define boundaries differently on a week-to-week basis to fit the argument at hand.

Anonymous said...

5. That's wearin' it out. Suprised the National Guard hasn't been called in. 9:39 sleeps with a nightlight on.

Hilarious!!!

Probably the same guy that is afraid of County Line Road... LOL

Anonymous said...

the county line guy was priceless

Taylor39211 said...

I KNEW this would HAPPEN. If y'all don't STOP we're gonna lose TWO congressional seats.

Fresh bank robbery inside the boundaries of the special precinct which includes downtown Jackson, Mississippi.

Two Dogs said...

Does anyone still have a branch bank open downtown? I thought that was why the LAWYERS started robbing the ones just north of Northside Drive.

Wait, is it the lawyers or the rappers that rob banks? I get them confused.

Anonymous said...

That's not downtown. go learn your jackson geography and then get back to us. and no, typically the branches aren't downtown although there are exceptions. the headquaters are downtown. can someone provide a link to the new hotel downtown they broke ground on today? thanks.

Correct, that bank is not downtown, but I would like to address a bigger problem...

That bank has bulletproof plexi, over 1" thick, that separates the tellers from the customers. So how did a robber with a knife convince the teller to fork over the cash? Hostage perhaps?

Anonymous said...

TD when the downtown cultists want to take credit for, say, something like the new City View condos (btw a stones throw from this afternoon's bank robbery) then lines between midtown and downtown get suddenly blurred beyond recognition. BUT when they want to mislead the public that downtown is safe and secure then they spin like hell to be sure that the public understands that downtown and midtown are seemingly two distinctly different areas.

Anonymous said...

4:32 = spin

Kingfish said...

I didn't even know there was a mid-town until some DJP peeps started referring to it as such.

Anonymous said...

@4:36 = Denial

Anonymous said...

@4:32 the Fondrenites do the same. All the gun holdups @ Meadowbrook @ State businesses are conveniently not Fondren crime.

Anonymous said...

@4:40 the suburbanites do the same. All the crime in the entire metro area are conveniently not metro crime. "My cat is stuck in the tree... it's Jackson's fault I'm sure."

Two Dogs said...

Cat stuck in TREE = Bank Robbery. Awesome.

Anonymous said...

The difference between down-town and mid-town only exists in the mind of the denier. The public at-large considers mid-town and down-town as one in the same.

Anonymous said...

And the out-of-state visitor/businessman/passer through considers Madison, Ridgeland, Clinton, Brandon, Pearl, Byram, Terry and Richland all just to be... Jackson. You may want to think about that next time you trash talk your capitol city to a visitor ;)

Anonymous said...

@4:31 I'm interested in that as well. Any thoughts?

Anonymous said...

Sure doesn't look like it from the picture on the CL, 4:55. Probaly standard procedure to hand over the cash in that scenario for many reasons.

Anonymous said...

You mean to tell me that you don't see the thick plexi and screws/bolts in that picture? I guess it is possible not to see that if you've never seen it in person, but you can take my word for it (or go see for yourself).

Anonymous said...

Zen proctologist Master DJP Po very unhappy about bank robbery. He know it prominent feature on all newscasts tonight.

Wonder if they'll run the grand opening of the hotel in downtown first or the robbery that is not in downtown.

Anonymous said...

Tongue tied after trying to make a mountain out of a molehill over a goofy pocket knife robbery?

Jane said...

Seeing stories on the news about home invasions off Meadowbrook on the East side of I-55. I'm on the other side of I-55 but am glad I'm armed.

Anonymous said...

@11:12 PM = Spin of a Denier

Anonymous said...

8:34 - let me know where to leave the replacement nightlight for you. I'll buy it for you and drop it off.

edo said...

This is a little dated since the original post was last week, but I was able to convert the pdf file to a excel spreadsheet. Makes for interesting sorting. I created some tabs in the spreadsheet that break the crime down by type and precinct. Link to download is here

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
