Killer Gets a Green Blessing

Kill someone, get out of prison in ten years.  Hinds County Circuit Judge Tomie Green once again gave a convicted murderer a light sentence.  Catch and release on the deferred plan.

A Hinds County grand jury indicted Robert Decatur for first degree murder and shooting into a vehicle in 2015.    A witness testified Decatur fired into the rear of a vehicle. Video showed Decatur shot the victim in the back of the head.  Decatur confessed to killing the victim but claimed it was done in self-defense.  The case finaaaaally went to trial in August.  A jury convicted Decatur of second degree murder.

However, this being Judge Tomie Green's courtroom, it was Decatur's lucky day.  Judge Green sentenced Decatur to serve thirty years in prison but suspended twenty years of the sentence.  He only has to serve ten years in prison before he is sprung.

Almost reminds one of the Eric Hambrick case.

I was an assistant DA, before my children came. Most of my $20 rock, drug sale defendants did more time.

Few people have done more to increase crime in Jackson than Tommie Green. VOTE HER OUT!

For the people saying "vote her out" --

She was a member of the House of Representatives for years before being elected circuit judge.

Do you people really think the people who keep re-electing her want he to do anything differently?

Going easy on thugs and murderers is just sticking it to the Man, people.

Wake up.

Judges like Tomie Green make a great case for vigilante justice.

Judge Green sounds like the typical Trump supporter. No worry about murderers or rapists as long as their skin is the right color. Sad.

You would think the judicial performance board would get her off the bench. Before you yell she's an elected official, they took an elected JC judge that slapped a kid in Canton off the bench. It took the about a year to get it done but they did it.

12:36 - I've been asleep for six months. Can you tell me the names of murderers and rapists your president has excused from their crimes. Thanks. RS

What was the basis of his self defense claim? Was it truly self defense? Did the DA make a recommendation of ten years during sentencing or did they leave it to the judge’s discretion?

Citizens of Jackson and Hinds County get what they deserve by continuing to elect the likes of Bennie Thompson, Judge Green, Baby Chock, Robert Schuler (sp?) Smith, and Victor Mason.

The courts don't work.
The water system does not work.
The police are understaffed and unsupported.
The HCSO is a joke.
JPS does not work.
The streets are a mess.

You all are doing great. Keep them in their government jobs with no accountability. If just one or two would be turned out of office maybe there would a slim chance of a turn around.

Just sayin'.

@3:40 - Its hard to imagine the basis of a self-defense claim when the victim is shot in the back of the head!

To add to what 3:55 posted: Yesterday I had occasion to take some items to the Salvation Army headquarters on State Street. My God at the roads! Had not been in that area for a year or two. County Line south all the way to Northside, several miles of bombed out infrastructure.

When I left Salvation Army, I headed south on State to Northside Drive in order to get on the interstate. My Lord! The streets are worse than in Iraq or Felusia. Negotiating orange cones, one way lanes, potholes deep and wide, barricades. The whole place is a mad house of crumbling inattention and neglect. Third World! Is there any such thing as 'fourth world'?

3:55 -

The courts work EXACTLY the way a majority of Jackson’s citizens want them to work.

Otherwise they’d do something to change it.

They want criminals freed. Jails and laws are inherently racist.

When I win the lottery Tuesday, I intend to buy an island & leave Jackson.

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.
