KF just loves posting all this negative news about Jackson. Crime happens everywhere but for some reason Jackson gets special coverage on his little blog. Thanks a lot for all of your “help” stirring up the angry white folks against our capital city.

Yes, crime happens everywhere, but not like this. This is something else entirely. Watch the news. Multiple people get shot in Jackson EVERY day. It just seems normal to those of us who grew up here. Talk to people who live in similarly sized cities nearby. Shit, talk to people who live in MS, but have never lived in Jackson. They all think it’s the Wild West....EVERY FUCKING DAY.

Another messenger shooter @ 2:29 PM.

Every Day? You sure?

Yes, KF, I’m sure. I did t say killed. I said shot and multiple. Talk to an ER doc or nurse at UMC. EVERY DAY.

What will shock the lambs is how many shot do not get any medical treatment from a facility.

The 'Crime Happens Everywhere' yappers make me sick.

Crime Happens Everywhere.
Teen pregnancy is rampant in all communities.
D and F school districts are simply the norm.
Drive by shootings are common in all neighborhoods.
Every town is plagued by infrastructure disaster.
Businesses are folding and leaving all towns.
Drugs and gangs are big business in every community.
Every mayor and school supt runs an employment office.

If you think there is no crime in Madison or Rankin County, murders included, take a day off and sit in your circuit courthouses. The number of guilty pleas will SURPRISE you, but the number of sexual assaults on children will SHOCK you.

So was the deceased the poorer marksman? Seems like a real gunfight.

Mayes Street? That's getting awfully close to The Fondren. We are no longer accepting applications in Madison, so keep your powder dry. Lock and load.

You can always have a fire sale on your home and move closer to the CCJ. I hear they have some openings.

8:05 seems to be the dullard in the room. Nobody has claimed, EVER, that 'there is no crime' in ANY city. The claim, and let me repeat it for the dullard, is, There is no town in this state where per capita crime comes halfway close to approximating that which occurs year after year in Jackson, MS.

We love living in a third world city. If we didn't we would change it. We would elect judges to put more black men in jail. We love poorly performing schools with no moral compass. If we didn't we would change it. We love racist illiterate and totally unqualified city politicians. If not we would change them. Jackson is lost.

The homicide rate in Jackson is in most years four or more times higher than the rate for the state of Mississippi, but of course the state rate also includes Jackson homicides so that is still not a true representation of how bad it really is compared to the rest of the state. Somebody with more time than I have could crunch the numbers and we would see how abysmal Jackson really is. The last comparison I saw was that the Jackson rate was a little higher than even Birmingham (long notorious for its high number of murders), and the highest of any city in the U.S. with a population between 100,000 and 250,000. It's bad. Some of the rural counties sometimes go years without any homicides at all, and no other larger city/town in Mississippi comes anywhere close to Jackson.

Don't be a hater, 11:13. None of us wants to hear facts like those. It upsets our dream and our talking points. Please go away. Far, far away.

Wise Owl - spot on. I am shocked that JJ allowed your comment to be published, as however un-PC it is, the truth hurts (because it should).

Please excuse me KF. I know this is a Jackson Site. We lived in Meridian before moving back here at retirement. I served on the grand jury there once and went through 2 1/2 days of "this drug case" and "that drug case" I was sick of them and then suddenly they were over and we moved on to a mixed assortment of sexual pervert crimes against children and wife beaters. 20 minutes later I was praying, "I'm so sorry God. Can we go back to drug cases?"

It has been almost three years and there is one that still makes me sick. We had one where a lady sold her 18 month daughter to a 72 year old man for sex - she got enough money from him to supply her drug habit for about a day. They arrested her and then went after him. He heard they were coming and they found he had hung himself in his garage when they got there. I guess he saved the county some prison money.

There are sick-sick people out there. Jackson and Hinds County might be worse (you'll get no debate from me), but it isn't any different anywhere else.

Your concluding comment is nonsense, 11:21. See the post at October 27, 2018 at 6:43 PM - above. Educate yourself. This level of crime does NOT happen 'anywhere else'. Not even in most major cities. Learn to calculate per capita events.

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.
