The Wire meets Mississippi

Check out this post from the Facebook page of the Pike County Sheriff:

Almost reminds one of this scene:

The old bait and switch. Worth a try.

Surely no one (other than some really dumb heroin addicts) seriously thinks the Sheriff is testing heroin. A very obvious trap. If you can even call it that.

Apparently this ruse has actually worked elsewhere:

Saw this on one of the local new stations. According to the sheriff it wasn't for the purpose of catching a drug dealer or used. One overdose victim dies. The sheriff is just helping out the druggies.

All jokes aside, this heroin overdose problem has become an epidemic in other states. If our legislature tries to address it by tightening down on prescriptions, they will force those who are addicted to turn to heroin and we will have a real epidemic on our hands here. This is one of those situations where the "simple fix" exacerbates the very problem it was trying to solve. I pray that wisdom will prevail.

Prohibition works!

So Pike County residents have switched from meth, apparently. I knew a volunteer fire fighter out in the rural county near Holmesville and he used to tell me horror stories about meth labs exploding and the team having to put out these fires.

Heroin doesn't blow up your trailer.

It all stems from over prescribed pain meds. I told the doctor to cut my script from 120 to 60, he insisted that I needed 90.

One of the disadvantages of taking out the taliban. They kept the growing of poppy down to a minimum. Now, it's growing like wildfire over there and it's being brought here in ungodly amounts.

Years ago the cops put up a large sign on HW 55 South announcing a traffic stop/drug search in 3 miles. There was a highway exit between the sign and the 3 miles mark. Vehicles with drug issues got off the highway at the exit, only to find the actual traffic stop was located out of sight at that exit. I recall all shades and makes of folks were caught. Clever and effective.

Manufacturer recommendations! EPIC!

"I'm sorry, I can't accept this heroin shipment. It doesn't meet our minimum standard spec."

8:11 you are CORRECT! And it's being assisted by a certain US Govt Agency. It' all started when China entered the Korean War and each Chinese soldier had a small canteen of opium syrup on their side. When the bugle signaled an attack, each would take a sip and a mass human wave would ensue. Dad was 1st Cav and saw it with his owns eyes. When the fighting stopped he would see certain individuals going through the dead bodies and scavenging the Canteens. Officers told him it was the CIA.

Never know how stupid dope heads can be. A couple of lifetimes ago I was called to HQ for a bad check complaint (report) by one of our resident idiots. I was dumb struck when he told me the check was for cocaine he had sold to idiot #2.

7:13, I drove that stretch of the highway twice each day. The signs were a joke. Everyone knew it was a joke. You seem not to know about communication. The first two or three cars to go through the imaginary road black passed the word.

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.
