Dawg-Pound for Gilmer

Attorney Barry Gilmer was convicted of disturbing the peace and discharging a firearm towards a dwelling in Madison County Justice Court this morning.  Deputies arrested Gilmer on April 16 after he fired a rifle in the direction of his neighbor's house.   Justice Court Judge Lloyd Spivey, Jr., sentenced him to serve twelve days in jail for discharging the firearm.

Gilmer argued he was protecting his property from his neighbor's vicious dog.   He said the hound-mix got out all the time and was on his property when the incident took place.  He admitted in court he fired at the dog with his shotgun.  The pellets shattered a kitchen window.  Two small children were behind a window adjacent to the one that was shot.   Gilmer claimed a tree blocked the view of the complainant. 

Judge Spivey ruled Gilmer was guilty of the two charges.  He fined Gilmer $500 and sentenced him to serve six months in jail for disturbing the peace, but suspended the jail sentence.  He fined Gilmer $1,000 for the firearm charge and ordered him to serve twelve days in jail.  Gilmer must pay court costs.  Judge Spivey delayed the sentences for thirty days so Gilmer can appeal to County Court.

He should be in jail. He could have hurt those children.

Barry, Barry, Barry, you can now be a real "jail house lawyer." Just be careful not to drop your briefs in the wrong spot.

This is nuts. Gilmer is a fine man. We sometimes make a wrong decision when animals from adjacent properties are involved and are nothing but a menace and nuisance. I have three feral cats that have taken up residence on my property now and am considering shooting them.

We will all be dead before this is over. Gilmer going to sue everyone... if he hasn’t already.. disgrace to the Bar.

Gilmer probably thought that since he was an attorney going in to justice court and a non-attorney judge that he would skate away on the charges. Who knows, Gilmer may have popped off to Spivey and that's why he got the penalty he got.

I personally think shooting towards an occupied dwelling should carry more of a penalty than it does.

2:48, two or three feral cats will have 10 to 20+ cats on your property in short order if you don't do something about it now. A woman that lives down the road from us let feral cats virtually take over her place until she tried to sell it. Out of curiosity I started counting the number of cats at her place, I quit counting at 40 grown cats. She had to hire someone to come trap cats and clean up and deodorize the property.

Feral cats are just as bad as feral hogs just a different type problem.

Who represents him? (Please don't tell us that he is rep'ing himself.)

Feral cats carry bad diseases, and when bleeding hearts feed them they breed more feral cats.

Yeah. Just shoot over in the general direction of the problem with a shotgun. That's always a good solution. I hope the attorney doesn't have a concealed carry permit.

Whoever says this guy is good , how bout you put your children in front of a window and let someone shoot through the one next to them. Let’s see how you like that you dumb idiot. What happened to shooting into a dwelling? All I know is he wouldn’t of shot into another window

Judge Spivey is an uneducated fool. I heard this all started because Gilmer would not allow the so called victim to park his tow truck out of sight of the neighborhood who was going to enforce covenants. The guy got fired. Either way the Gilmer father and son duo will retaliate and I'd hate to be on the end of their money and wrath.

Keep us posted KF on the appeal.
Shooting into a house is just like drive by shooting.
The victim better ring his house with video cameras.

I wouldn’t shoot towards a house but I can understand the frustration of being accosted by someone’s unrestrained dog constantly and getting fed up.

Understand what you are saying about dogs. However, there is one fundamental rule of shooting above all others save for assuming the gun is always loaded. Know what you are shooting at.

Judge Spivey is not the "undeducated fool", you buncha' gun totin' REDNECKS! You should stop marryin' your own kin and quit shooting innocent animals and children. There are responsible ways of handling pet overpopulation. I'd be wasting my typing by explaining it to you...

You 'wasted your typing' attempting to spell uneducated.

@2:37 First, Spivey does not have a legal education and is a fool. Second, everyone knows that Pammi Hancock and those idiot judges over there are in cahoots. Don"t forget about the joint victory bash they had together where they sold tickets. LMAO. Third, I highly doubt Gilmer would just ride over and randomly shoot up a house. I heard the same story, the guy got pissed at Gilmer because Gilmer would not let him park some kind of truck on the property. My friend lives in that neighborhood and confirmed the dog is a nuisance and the truck story is legit. He used to see the two truck parked on the street.

Its not the dog's fault. Bleeding heart irresponsible pet owners are squarely to blame. Gilmer was totally wrong to shoot in the direction of the dog owners home and deserves more than that what Spivey gave him. When you ask a pet owner numerous times to contain their animals and they don't, the owner should be fined as well. I feel Gilmers pain.

@ 10:14, your an Idiot! First Gilmer shot a gun in the direction of the house plan and simple! Second Pammi Hancock never had a Joint Victory Bash with the Judges. It may be best if you learn the truth before you open your mouth! Gilmer broke the law and was Prosecuted! He actually should have received more charges.

I’m afraid if someone fired 00 Buckshot at my house with my kids inside I would have to return fire. The punishment he received doesn’t seem sufficient for such a reckless action.

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.
