Dr. Smith appeals to Supreme Court for bail

Dr. Arnold Smith filed an appeal of a court order denying him bail at the Mississippi Supreme Court on July 2. The Leflore County Circuit Court denied bail after indicting him on two counts of conspiracy to commit murder and one count of capital murder. Dr. Smith owns and operates the North Mississippi Cancer Center in Greenwood. The state alleges Dr. Smith hired two individuals to kill Greenwood attorney Lee Abraham.

Dr. Smith asks the court to set bail at $100,000. He argues there is no basis for a capital murder charge as the state admits its investigator killed Keaira Byrd in self-defense. The doctor also argues the investigator was not engaged in one of the underlying felonies to support a charge of capital murder since he allegedly killed Byrd in self-defense. Dr. Smith states it is not fair for the state to set bail for one of the alleged hitmen, Cordarious Robinson, who has a criminal background while he is held without bond.

He may be crazy, but he does present a decent argument for bail.

I call BS on him. Unlike the, ahem, 'alleged' hitman (you know, the one caught on video 'allegedly' committing the crime), Dr. Smith is wealthy and has a passport and could easily flee the jurisdiction. Under the felony murder rule he is as guilty as anyone for the death, so his first argument is crap.

Let him sit there where we know where this loon is until his trial.

If he had gotten a first time DUI or been accused by his partners of being drunk on the job, the medical board would have made him go to rehab or loose his license forever. But conspiracy and murder charges? Nothing. They would rather beat doctors with misdemeanors over the head with the cult of AA than take a paranoid delusional with homicidal tendencies out of practice. 12 steppers just haven't gotten around to murderers anonymous. Too bad.

Arnold's lawyers will rue the day when he gets out of jail. He will pester the living daylights out of them and is one of those people who is "never wrong." Prediction is that he fires at least one set of lawyers and takes his defense on himself. And if these lawyers make him mad? We know what happens when a lawyer gets on his bad side.....

I know a few doctors who are pretty mad at the board over this.

I have always thought this crazy would end up defending himself. He thinks he's just so damn much smarter than everyone else about everything.

So his wife is retired and is going to be sure he obeys the law while he's on bail? Sure she is.

What chance does this crazy have of getting bail? I hope NONE.

That's not dr. Smith. It is a clever imposter substituted by one of his enemies.

the state board for doctors is a public board. call them at 601 987 3079 or fax 601 987 4159 if you want your voice heard. they listen to the people. Ask for Vann Craig he is the head man there.

6:53; are you a friend of Bill's?

Shadow, it works if you work it, only your secrets make you sick, and no one gets here by accident. I just love the brainwashing sloganology of AA. Reminds me of Scientology.

Bill W, tripping balls to find "God" to stay sober. Makes sense to me.

Dr. Smith's wife should do an adequate job. That document is well written. Let the man go back to work and provide for his kids. Maybe then all the families involved can get back to their normal lives. He is the only man with 10 kids that can actually pay for them. Dr. Smith will go crazy in prison, and then the state has another expense.

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.
