New poll

Which police department/law enforcement agency is the worst. Fire away and don't forget to vote early and often.

Has to be JPD, hands down. It's just a reflection and extension of a seriously broken and corrupt city government.

Darryl said...

See, I disagree. When considered as a whole, you can make a case for JPD. With leadership hobbled by ineffective city leaders, no police force can be effective and respected. Don't know if I would go so far as to say they are the worst, though... With suburban PD requiring 2 and 3 cruisers for traffic stops, and apparently shit else to do, my money might go on Ridgeland PD

JPD all the way!!!

Darryl....you obviously have no law enforcement experience and you obviously have no idea what goes on outside of your narrow, little world. The reason ANY police department uses more than one cruiser on ANY call, if at all possible, is that they have no idea what they are getting into when they make an encounter.....and their first priority is safety; for themselves as well as for the public. They have a responsibility to their families to make it home safely after their shift.

In all fairness to JPD whats the use in arresting people when they just get let go on a low bail and get to stay free for 475 days???? if the DA and the court system collapse first (oh yeah the jail system too) then it just trickles down to the attitude of the street officers. Who by the way can only make minimum wages. You pay for what you get.

Now with that being said the majority of these clowns in JPD are just riding the clock.

The poll might be more interesting if "police dep't OTHER THAN the JPD" were the category.

I'm with Anderson; although I have to admit that JPD's effectiveness is not limited by policing, it is limited by prosecution and judgement. Although, I thought the worst PD would be Ridgeland. Too many muscle-heads looking for a reason to bust anyone and everyone regardless of the law.

Soto is a clear example.

Anon @ 2:12...Nope, no law enforcement experience here. Just grew up in Jackson and lived in the surrounding communities since. Just basing it on my personal, professional experiences in dealing with individual officers from the various agencies. The individual professionalism exhibited by most JPD officers are to be commended and I would stack some of them against others in the metro area. Just as there are some in all departments who couldn't care two shits about whatever.

have had experience with JPD, Ridgeland PD, Madison PD, Canton PD, Flowood PD, Hinds SO and Madison SO. Not all bad, but experience. Would have to say that Jackson PD is by far the worst. Disagree with all on Ridgeland PD (guess that is the folks that are working for Madison SO candidates!!). Ridgeland PD and Flowood PD are the most professional and curtious officers around. Hinds SO is mixed - depends on the question. And the Flowood PD has been quite competent as well.

In order of bad: Jackson PD, Madison SO, and all the rest.

It is a Two Lakes conspiracy.

The agencies that are perceived as the worst, have really poor support and leadership. JPD and Canton PD are prime examples as horrible leadership, liberal judges who make the system a revolving door for the criminals. This destroys the morale of the good men and women who are serving the citizens these two cities. Unfortunately, their leaders are very underqualified for their positions, and much like Washington, are suffering from a spending problem and NOT the income problem that they would have the public believe.

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.
