Dang. I am so please “i woke up” and moved North a couple of years ago. I closing my 25 years old office by the end of May 2018 and moving it North too. Heck, I even closed my P.O Box and my new one has a 39130 zip code. Since I still travel 155 at Northside daily wish me luck.

This reminds me. Why doesn't somebody mention to Kenny that Percy King was shot and killed. You can't really argue with moving the zoo when literally the zoo board members are getting shot and killed in the area around the zoo.

Yea if you didn’t already know, stay out of west Jackson. Going to need a little more context on the supposed interstate shooter. Why hasn’t this been a in the media if it’s truly someone randomly shooting people on i55.

@ 11:34 AM....No uninformed visitor to Jackson should be fooled into going in to that part of town to see the "zoo". I drove through there the other day to refresh my memory and I'm here to tell you it is R O U G H .

Last week in a city council meeting about the Zoo, Nia Umoja said the following about West Jackson:

We also need to take command of the narrative that is perpetuated on our place. Folks that don't live here do not have the right to character assassinate our home or position a narrative based on their own fears and misconceptions.

Ms. Umoja, I present to you reports of two murders in West Jackson this weekend, one less than a mile from the Zoo. That's the JPD talking, and it looks like your fellow residents are doing a fine job themselves of perpetuating the narrative - a narrative based upon facts and documentation, not fears and misconceptions.

Lying about West Jackson and blaming those who don't live there does not change reality. You would be wise to learn that.

Jackson has its problems to be sure, but I'm not convinced that random drivers are taking shots at doctors in Porsches on highly trafficked streets at 2 in the afternoon on a Sunday, especially on such a beautiful day when a lot of people were out.

I'm not sure what happened, but did he call the cops, or merely drive home and post on FB? Is there a bullet hole in the passenger door or a slug somewhere in the vehicle? This is not a petty crime, for Pete's sake! If someone is shooting at drivers, then the police need to be alerted.

Don't know the guy and I'm not saying he's lying, but there's gotta be more to this story than what he's saying.

Reckon that's the same gyno doc who was jacked two years ago and killed one of the jackers? Maybe it's payback.

Regardless of how much 'more to the story' there is. Nobody deserves to have his ass shot at driving down the street.

Anonymous said...

Unless he can show a slug or another hole in the car, the window was not shot out. it would have been cracked and air pressure blew it out, or a rock/debris from a passing vehicle. Unless shooter was a KBG agent using ice bullets which subsequently melted, where is the rest of the story......

Messick said...

From where does this Umoji broad think that somebody doesn't have the right to criticize or form an opinion about an obvious problem?

"Changing the narrative" is a way the left wants all others to ignore dangerous, life-threatening problems.

PittPanther said...

The only "more to the story" we want is some kind of verifiable proof that things went down the way he says.
For example, Where's the bullet? Police report? 911 call? Wouldn't you call 911 in the hopes of police catching this guy?
After getting shot at, he just casually continued home?

Anonymous said...

Of course not! I'm not suggesting that anyone deserves such, but I will say that if he got shot at for whatever reason, he needs to alert the authorities immediately and prevent this from happening to someone else.

Funny there is no news report on this. I would think that a random assault with a deadly weapon upon a prominent citizen in such a public place in broad daylight would at least raise some concern among the local media.

Glad the guy is OK.

Anonymous said...

Wouldn't you call 911 in the hopes of police catching this guy?

If someone took a shot at me and blew out my window, I'd be lucky if I didn't crash the car in a panic! But the first thing I would do after composing myself and making sure I was OK and out of danger is call 911 and report it. As I said above, this is not a petty crime and I doubt many people would simply brush it off and continue home, coolly take photos of their shattered window, then post an "oh, by the way" warning on Facebook.

And there's gotta be a slug in the car. He only mentioned his driver's window, so it's a fair assumption that the other windows were not broken by an exiting bullet.

Would driving off after getting shot at constitute leaving the scene of a crime?

Somehow the Clarion Ledger wants us to get all emotional over Lil Lonnie cause he wanted to buy momma a house. It's a tradegy and senseless murder, but I would say his family and Callaway failed this young man a long time ago: His 'hit' Colors.

[Intro: Lil Lonnie]
I just want the money
I never met a bitch that I need
All I see is colors, blowing green

[Hook: Lil Lonnie]
One thing I never seen was a bitch I need
All I need is money what the fuck you think
Tryna sip away my problems with promethazine
I'm tryna make a way it's harder than it seems
I'm tryna stay low-key fuck tryna make a scene
No time for a bitch she either stay or leave
It one thing I never seen is a bitch I need
Cause all I see is colors nigga blowing green

[Verse 1: Lil Lonnie]
Fuck a bitch, get some money
I want them 20s and 100s
Run up a check and keep thumbing
All of the hate don't accumulate nothing
Turned nothing into something
Staying consistent, the money keep coming
I done been broke, and I ain't going back
So I'm chasing money from Monday to Sunday
Lil bitch say I need her
Hoe I'm here to please you
Fuck you thought lil bitch
I'm chasing after monifa
My bitch got you tripping
Told that bitch I'm bout to leave her
Pour up some muddy, blow my mind on exotic rifa
I'm tryna get it my nigga
I'm in them trenches lil nigga, that's like everyday
I move that micha lil nigga
Take your hoe on adventure, if she give me faith
You niggas pretending lil nigga
I'm seeing blue hunnids and that's why I flash in they face
I fit attention lil nigga
If you want problems, then I pull up right where you lay

Ms. Umoja - where do you think financial support for the zoo will come from? The residents of West Jackson that surround the zoo? No, it will come from those very people that you have condemned for voicing their valid fears and concerns.

About the rapper, supposedly there was a post on snapchat that said one down, five more to go. Wonderful.

Ever try to get a cop on the interstate to respond after getting shot at in traffic in Jackson? Going home and getting the fuck out of shitsville is the only option. All you racial apologists trying to make he victim a bad guy make me sick. Go back to St. James and suck each other off.

Anonymous said...

Keepin' it classy, 1:58. Such a command of the language!

"Racial apologists?" Give me one instance of where race was mentioned in discussions of the guy in the Porsche who claims he was shot at.

Other than yours, of course.

Rocks are flying in the area where the Porsche was damaged. I55 is being scraped up and repaved. I was at a glass shop that had 3 people come in windshields damaged from rocks on 55.

Maybe the shooter was upset that someone would buy a Porsche GTS with an auto transmission

I have found it safest to travel in Jackson by not traveling south of County Line Rd., east of Clinton, north of Siwell road and west of the Pearl river. I think you will be pretty safe if you follow this advice.

Burke said...

Y'all keep in mind that many comments on posts like this are coming from real estate agents.

Even so, we (Jacksonians) are well on our way to becoming the murder capital of the U. S. 90% of it is drug=related, I would guess. The Porsche Person would help us by providing details from the police report. Otherwise, what's to keep us from suspecting that it's another drug=related crime?

It's going to take a long time, if ever, to reduce such crime in West Jackson. I think we need to move the zoo somewhere else in the city. It is stupid to think otherwise. Many black politicians will posture in order to keep the votes coming in, but it's a matter of safety. Damn it, we want to be protected.

Louis LeFleur said...

Repeating comments from last week after talking about drivers on I-220.

An now with THAT said, what the heck has happened to JPD traffic details? I can't remember the last time I saw the formerly regular speed traps on I-55 at Northside or Briarwood, and the public knows it because people ZOOM past me while I'm already doing 65-70 in a 60 zone every morning and afternoon. There are also S curves on Manhattan and on Culley drive (between State and the frontage road) where JPD used to semi-regularly have traffic stops where they caught numerous people with expired/suspended licenses, no insurance, and/or expired tags, but almost always also someone who had an outstanding warrant who had evaded LEOs to that point. I haven't seen any of those stops since we got our new mayor or temporary police chief.

To 12:51 who posed the question: "Would driving off after getting shot at constitute leaving the scene of a crime?"

Good point. The police need to lock up every victim guilty of fleeing from the criminals instead of waiting for them to show up to shoo them away.

The Doctor chased the car all the way into Madison County. He did call the cops, but JPD did nothing. MPD pulled over the wrong guy.

I'm surprised he caught up with them considering it's an auto transmission

Maybe the bad roads and potholes are a crime prevention strategy to slow down fleeing criminals. Who said Stokes wasn't brilliant!

I do believe the good doctor was the victim of rock assault. They are not doing a very good job of cleaning up the loose rocks

@7:37. It was not a rock. He saw the shooter. I am a family member and can attest to that.

Modern auto trans out perform there manual counterparts but this is a Porsche. The auto trans is for the ones that dont understand how a rear wheel rear engine car performs. Maybe he should have bought the Porsche SUV turbo like the rest of the posers. Lol

I don't know how old most of you are but I'll assure you that for many decades when the weather finally turns warm in the early summer there has always been a flury of violence in the "hood". I can't tell you why but I can tell you it happens just like clock work. Now when we get closer to July 4th be ready for another round of violence accompanied by numerous robberies. It just is what it is.

This is the third person killed in the Capital city in less than 24 hours. So very sad.

It does seem like blasphemy to get an automatic in a Porsche, but the PDK (dual-clutch automatic) in modern Porsche's are faster than their 7 speed manual counterparts.

A while back my family was traveling after dark on I20. As we approached Ellis Ave the left passenger window violently exploded into the car, throwing glass all over my infant riding behind the driver seat as well as my other children. Believing we had been shot at we continued home as quickly as possible, as we were terrified. Upon inspection we could find no evidence other than a shattered window to suggest a gunshot and concluded that it had to be a rock that struck the window.

Chris Merck said...

yes, naysayers and doubters, i can happen. It DID to my father several years ago when he was headed south on 55 past pearl st. exit. he stopped at one of the jpd precincts where a jpd officer-an old friend/customer from his former gun store - was in charge. Officer said at time that reports of something similar had been reported recently.

LOL, @Mona Lisa for the win!!

Similar occurrence reported Monday morning, I-55 at Lakeland. "...very loud size hole driver's side window which then shattered." Owner states that they are not sure if someone shot or threw something. They mentioned the incident discussed here and wondered if they were related.

More bullets flying near Maywood Mart, according to a friends shared Facebook post. Is there some gang war or initiation going on!?

Not bullets. electrical fuse cut-out. A tree fell on Northside drive that caused a service fuse cut-out (often erroneously called a transformer) to blow a little after 7:00am. The same time the post on facebook was made

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.
