Jailhouse Justice in Raymond

It appears a case of jailhouse justice took place in Raymond last week.  WLBT reported last week:

A murder suspect died in a Jackson hospital after he was assaulted at the Raymond Detention Center on December 6.

Dominique Martinez Griffin was transported to UMMC for treatment. He died Friday afternoon.

Griffin was charged with murder of Rastafian Beasley. Beasley was shot and killed on Fontaine Avenue on December 2. Article
Jailhouse justice?  Well, Rastafian "Fats" Beasley was a Vice Lord.  Needless to say, Fats' peeps were waiting on Griffin by the time he made it to Raymond.

"Jailhouse justice"? How is this any different than the lynchings you've decried on previous posts? Any "justice" outside the law is only just depending on the eye of the beholder.

I am guessing there wil be no comments about lynchings, but what is the difference if an accused person is hanged or assaulted to death?

Like a lynching, a jailhouse murder before trial will leave a lot of questions about the underlying crime unanswered. No matter how bad the inmate may have been, and no matter how heinous the crime of which he's accused, the process has been perverted. It is not justice, not by a long shot.

Who said it wasn't any different? You seem to mistake the headline for approval. That is what it was, jailhouse justice. He allegedly shot a vice lord and got whacked in return.

Come on folks! Regardless of the label, KF did NOT use the term "lynched" or "lynching". I think everyone's underwear is on just a little too tightly these days where everything has to resort, in one way or another, back to the days of old when these evil acts occurred because of someone's race.

America needs to grow up and stop getting offended and crying racism, discrimination, etc. every time someone says anything. Its gotten real old.

Turn the dang news off. They are programming everyone to be divided.

Keep reporting KF.

I didn't see you (Kingfish) calling lynchings 'Countryside Justice' or 'Tree-limb Justice' or something cute like that.

The law enforcement people who threw this guy to the wolves should be held criminally responsible. They knew what they were doing.

Hey 10:01 you are the only person who alluded to race. That's your problem. Anytime someone is killed by a mob, or murdered before he can be legally tried for a crime there is an obvious parallel with lynchings. Maybe not in your dream world, but here in Mississippi it's fact. Sorry.

It seems as if some of the respondents think that "jailhouse justice" was served by the jailers and not the Jail population.
Regardless of what the media reports and perception, Mississippi is no more racist than any other state in this country. Whether the racism is against Asians, Hispanics, Native Americans, Blacks, etc. (I'm certain this statement will generate much hatred, but, it's the truth.)

"Jailhouse justice" is a commonly used slang term for what happened here. Stop trying so hard to be offended. Get a life.

“Will no one rid me of this troublesome...” fill in the blank, nod nod wink wink at the right subordinate (or helpful thug in this case) and zap! Problem solved without the tiresome machinations of “justice.”

I read just today about 3 to 5 LEO being suspended while Mississippi authorities investigate the death while in custody of a detainee. Whether the boy dies in the back of a Crown Vic or after being tossed into a cell with hungry gang's well known who the guilty are.

Too damned many Bubbas in uniform.

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.
