Interim Chief.

He hasn't been -- and likely won't get -- confirmed by the deadline next month.

If only the city could fix potholes as fast as firing cops who beat up thugs

He'll be back in a uniform somewhere like Canton, Bolton, Vicksburg....

As a citizen and a tax payer in NE Jackson I really hope this guy is never named chief. He obviously lacks leadership and has no backbone either. I bet he's in hazelhurst or Bolton before you know it.

Back in the day a thug would have taken the beating and that would be the end of it. They don't make thugs like they used to.

6:21 I have to assume by “thug” you mean black. He was pulled over a beaten by a cop who had a beef with him. But we don’t live “back in the day” when this was acceptable.

And when your type die off society will be a better place.

somebody got fired...... so what. happens everyday. people think that because somebody got 'fired' thats end of them and the last they will ever hear of them, WRONG. he has already probably been hired by another law enforcement agency.

7:08, do you think there was more violent crime in the schools and on the streets of Jackson prior to 1960's or after after? Was there more respect for the rule of law and the institutions of education? Has time proven that the people in the 'bad old days' were truly wrong? I was born in the 1980s and I missed out on seeing those days. I just know what I've been taught my whole life.

The officer was fired. He was not allowed to resign. It will be much harder for him to find work again.

I know a particular officer who has worked with Jackson, Byram, and Clinton and has been allowed to resign each time he has been in trouble. That's the problem...when law enforcement agencies lack the backbone to terminate employment and allow a resignation instead.

7:05 AM - Well, I am not white, and I have no idea of the color/race of the man that was allegedly beaten. Your comments seem a bit racist at worst, and very presumptive at best.

Thug? He's a good kid. Doing well in college. Has a good reputation. Yet you just call him a thug. I wonder why?

Oh, here's a little tidbit. Lampking was making an arrest outside of his precinct. Word on the Street is the Olive Garden security camera video wasn't favorable to the fired-cop.

It's good to know that the City of Jackson under this mayor doesn't reward cops who engage in excessive force with continued employment.

It sounds like the Chief did the right thing. Cops have no right just to beat up people unless the person does not comply or is threatening.
Curious, was the cop black or white?

Funny thing is that when the cops had more liberty to beat em like a yard dog there was more peace and law and order, now that we cry foul every time the police hurts our feelings there is violent crime rampant everywhere...may be time to start doing things the old way

@11:00 AM in 2018 if the race isn't mentioned in these type cases, it is safe to assume that both are the same race. If this officer was white, you would be hearing it from all local media, and possibly national media. White on Black crime is statistically lower thab air plane crashes and lottery winning.

The race of all individuals involved in this case is relevant. Just because corrupt media sources overlook it, doesn't mean it's not important. Politically correct media is destroying this country.

It's sad when we as a Society can't use the Facts of the Case to make decisions about Young People whether they or the Police happen to be Good or Bad. Facts are Facts, let's not assume anything.

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.
