What happened to the notion of shooting or bull-whipping a prisoner who started this kind of crap? Total lockdown? Sheesh.

I believe this is the first time this has happened. Did Mac ever lose control? I know there are not enough detention guards. Most of them were fired or they left on their own after pay cuts. It will continue to go downhill.

The family, on noon news, is saying they relative is not responsible cause he be a good boy who don't start no trouble.

There's Robert Graham, all buttoned down, behind Tyromes talking about SWAT and 'we swore an oath to control thangs'.

"We have to make sure that we can move in a effective manner as well as a timely manner to ensure safety". What the hell does that mean?

Maybe they should let them out on Friday nights more often for those Madison County throw-downs outside of Ridgeland, that way they could mingle more with their Madison County wannabe kid fans!

Did you see this lawsuit?

Lawsuit Accuses For-Profit College of Bias Against Female and Minority Students

By Julia Love

Virginia College, a for-profit institution with campuses in 11 mostly Southern states, is defending itself against a lawsuit asserting that it misled students about the value of their degrees and violated the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by strategically taking aim at female and minority students in its advertising.

The lawsuit was filed by the Mississippi Center for Justice on behalf of seven students who attended the college's location in Jackson, Miss. The center's lawyers describe the lawsuit as one of the first to accuse a college of unfairly directing its advertising toward women and members of minority groups, which would also violate the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the lawyers said.

"The targeting of a predatory product to a racial minority is a form of intentional discrimination," said Courtney Choi, a legal fellow at the center. "These students can't pay back their student loans because they weren't adequately trained to get jobs in their field."

A Virginia College official said the lawsuit's assertions were baseless.

The seven students were enrolled in the college's medical-assistant program. All are women; five are black and two are white.

Virginia College allegedly sought to enroll African-American students by featuring people of that race in its advertising and engaging them to work on its admissions staff, according to the complaint. The document also alleges that the college purchased advertisements in Jackson's African-American newspapers and on buses that disproportionately served residents of that race.

What a joke the Hinds County Sheriffs Office is. Might as well be called the Hinds County Police Department.

Of course they were. That slipshod news outfit doesn't broadcast anything not handed to them on a silver plate.

I believe Tyrone said he was concerned for everyone' safeLy! I rewound it to make sure I heard it right.

The Virginia College lawsuit, as phrased, is a stretch. I agree that the so called 'college' offers an inferior product in it's 'diploomers', but this is crap. Advertising on busses that travel predominantly in black neighborhoods? Recruiting blacks and women in violation of the equal opportunity mandate? Hiring graduates to work in their recruiting arena as a means of further discriminating against those they attempt to recruit.

The ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center are succeeding at flooding the market with these nutcase female attorneys. What level of discrimination was at play when they got their Esquire shingles.

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.

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.
