It's a shame JPD isn't made up of better marksman.

The Bold New City offers numerous opportunities for JPD personnel to practice their marksmanship. On-the-job training while chasing women. It's a win-win situation.

NO LEA is without its sins. Some I believe are certainly more published than others.

When should we expect statements from Jessie, Al, and the New Blank Panther party? Has Stokes started bumping his gums on this one? I supposed this guy was a good family man and out going to meet his preacher for coffee?

Ol' Tex the Law Man said...

Yeah? Well I'm a LEO with 70 plus years. Yup! Been on the job since Eisenhower. When I started these whippersnappers wouldn't dast cross a law man, lest we hogtie 'em, throw 'em across the saddle, and take 'em to the hoosegow!

These dang ol' millennials don't know what it means to empty yer Peacemaker into a desperate hombre who's makin' untoward advances upon Miss Lillie the schoolmarm!

Man was not armed . The blade was planted.

Minor Correction, If I may.. said...

Minor correction here: People don't get shot AFTER attacking a cop. They get show WHILE attacking a cop. Why do Kingfish and all other correspondents always say 'after'. A man died AFTER a car wreck on highway 80. He didn't die after the wreck. He died DURING the wreck!

A man was shot and killed after a bank robbery on PeeDoodle Street. No, during a bank robbery.

Three people were struck and killed AFTER a tornado hit Pelamoombo. No, they were killed WHEN the tornado hit Pelamoombo.

I'll pause now for incoming, while you're reading, or AFTER you've read.

PULEEZE; It's 'marksmen', not 'marksman'. How can you expect to shoot straight if you don't exist?

Thanks for the comments from the Grammar Gestapo. Don't you realize that if you make a typo while posting a comment on your iPhone, your entire thought is totally invalid?

And by the way, I lived through that Pelamoombo tornado and it was a doozy! After the storm cleared, a trailer collapsed and killed my dog Mavis, so he was killed after the storm.

I'm all messed up on cough syrup now so, like, never mind.

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.
