Unrest in the ranks?

This letter about JPD was sent to all members of the Jackson City Council.  It is not signed so take it with a grain of salt.

Signed or unsigned the writer appears to speak with, knowledge, authority and concern.

Any suggestions on what a citizen can do as Council people always say, administration is the Mayor's job!

It is legitimate, I heard several veteran officers gathered and constructed it. It’s unsigned due to the backlash and retaliatory nature of the Police Department.

Lee Vance is gone and it is falling apart.

It was falling apart before during after.. Regardless of who's in charge.

I am not bashing Jackson, but we must face the fact that if there is this much discord in JPD then there is little, if any, hope that the crime situation will Jackson will improve. I feel for the men and women on the streets of Jackson (the few that there are) everyday risking their lives knowing that they are in a no win situation. As drastic (and unlikely) as it sounds, the time is fast approaching when it may be necessary to call in the National Guard to control crime.

So let me get this straight a whole decade has to pass before any marginal increase in wages. Where other departments give wage increments yearly. I can sense morale is low have y'all not seen what they ride in. Beat up , exhaust popping vehicles. When people come to any City they look at education and crime. This department is deplorable. It to mention all the officers who have been arrested with Federal charges. And didn't the city council just approve a raise for there

And from the City Council comes a resounding "next".....

Remember when Mac was sheriff and chief at the same time? I would support Vance as chief, sheriff and mayor all at the same time. And throw in DA.

Anthony Moore is in over his head and his department is ready to turn on him and the Lumumba administration. There are rumblings of a “blue flu” coming soon. The rank and file are tired of the buddie buddie system. The recent appointments at the department all have relationships with the current Chief.

Think it is bad now? Wait until Antar kow-tows to Minka and Ladd once his select police shooting commission completes their rope-a-dope.

What a dysfunctional police and city administration. More and more officers will be moving on down the road.

Take a look at real estate listings - more and more middle/upper class homes are on the market. People have had enough. Crime is off the Richter scale; there aren't enough cops, but who would want to work there when they can have a real career across elsewhere?

The police administration is obviously cooking the crime statistic books.

I'm not a Jackson basher, but, Jackson is in Hinds county which has had 22 bridges closed down. Wow. It's getting worser & worser.

When a department is full of nepotism, power, sex and intimidation on top of that the Officers rightfully so don't fell appreciated because of the low wages. There's no unity within the department from supervisors on down. Once you've reach a certain status or clic, you're not held accountable for let's say a 5 year veteran. There's a lot of different punishment for different officers who violate their general orders.

The Mayor is under the impression by demoting some of JPD problem children with the still mysterious early retirement of Vance in which I'm still waiting in the true reason why he so abruptly "retired", he scrapped of mole off a piece of bread but is the bread still any good to make a good sandwich with half of the bread pieces are missing. Just throw the entire bread away and get some freash bread

I don't agree that everything that's unsigned should be 'taken with a grain of salt'. There are reasons legitimate letters like this are not signed. And there is ZERO reason to question its credibility. If there is a reason to think it might be bogus, please state your theory.

I believe the primary reason this department has remained stagnant through at least twelve chiefs of police is due to the fact that each mayor, in that progression, has had NO goal of attacking crime or using the department effectively.

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.
