Idiot of the Day

Update: BPD charged Fulton with unlawful possession of explosives.  

The Brandon Police Department issued the following statement. 

On April 21st, 2018, a Brandon resident made contact with the Brandon Police Department Dispatch at 13:23 about a suspicious device located at a neighbor’s home. The caller believed that the neighbor possessed an improvised explosive device (IED) utilizing a propane bottle.

After arriving on scene, Brandon Police confirmed the potential that an IED existed and has evacuated the residents around the 100 block of Blackbridge Drive. Nathaniel Ray Fulton was taken into custody who admitted on scene to building the device. He claimed it was a fake.

Brandon Police reached out to the Jackson Police Department who has dispatched their EOD team. EOD technicians were able to determine the device was a very convincing fake and deemed the scene safe.

Brandon Police was assisted by Jackson Police Department Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team and the Rankin County Sheriffs Department, and the ATF in this matter.

Fulton is being held on a $250,000.00 bond.

Yeah, what’s the charge? This release leaves out some very basic details

12:00 Brandon, like most of the flourishing suburbs, takes crap like this seriously. If you want to terrify your neighbors by putting a realistic-looking fake bomb on a neighbor's porch, and expect to get sprung and have a judge write a poem about you, you know the jurisdiction where you need to commit your crime.

Have you forgotten the deaths in Austin about two months ago from bombs left on porches? Kudos to Brandon's PD.

He should have made the fake device look like a clock, then he would have been invited to the White House.

I think you misread the post. The defendant did not place the device on his neighbor's porch. The neighbor saw the device on defendant's property.

Ordnance, not ordinance, BPD.

Them folks from Rankin County sure do like to overreact and be drama queens. No doubt the Barney Fife LEOs in that area put on all of their tactical combat gear and rushed to the scene with lights flashing and sirens blazing

When this guy get out from underneath this charge he will still have to live next to his neighbor who turned him in. The neighbor should have gotten a disposable cell phone and called the police saying they were driving by this property & spotted a bomb on the porch.

1:18 is the champion of the internet for today, well played Tick Tock.

I read the media reports on this and have yet to figure out what he could have been charged with.

How much will Jackson charge Brandon for the use of their EOD team? Maybe Brandon should fund their own EOD team, since they think everything run by Jackson is incompetent (ie, the airport).

Please, Jackson airport is one of the most efficient airports I've ever used. No where else in America can you get through security so easily and safely. The airport is 10/10 in my book -- never once had a serious issue.

Wonder how long it will be before the suspect pens and publishes his memoirs "Aint Done Yet: The story of how my life radically changed due to an inconsiderate neighbor cooking burgers that ran out of propane"?

Unlike you they remember the deaths two months ago in Austin, TX when some savage started leaving bombs on porches and sidewalks.

Good thing the guy wasn't wearing a "pro-2nd amendment" shirt
BPD might have called Homeland Security thinking they had a terrorist

The fact that they found a Trump pamphlet and Bible in his living room explains the CNN remote-trucks at several Pearl motels and one Waffle House.

Shouldn’t the charges be unlawful possession of fake explosives? If what he had were explosives, every trailer in stankin Rankin is guilty. Yes, Bubba, I said it.

10:15 - Yeah, you said it. However, there is no law on the books regarding 'fake explosives'. Did you make that shit up?

Disturbing the peace. All those sirens and S.W.A.T. vehicles make a lot of noise.

Sorry, but I am suspicious of the IED...last year there was a suicide of a political candidate in Meridian...the local new reported a flame thrower was found at his home...the video showed a $19.95 4' pipe that connects to a propane bottle used to burn brush with...this thrower would propel a flame about 4 inches.

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.
