JPD Suspends Officer

JPD announced at a 1:15 PM press conference that an officer accused of sexually assaulting a minor has been placed on administrative leave.   At a press conference this morning, attorney Lisa Ross accused (now-deceased) officer James Hollins of repeatedly having sex with a 15 year-old girl for six months.  Ms. Ross represents the victim's family.

 Sergeant Roderick Holmes said internal and criminal investigations of the allegations will take place.  He said the officer in question was placed on administrative leave as is standard procedure for such cases.   Sergeant Holmes said he became aware of the allegations yesterday.

Sergeant Holmes said he did not have any information about whether the suspect officer committed suicide.  However, he did say there was a "deceased victim" on I-220 upon a direct question by yours truly.  He said there was a deceased person there who died of what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Kingfish note: The Kingfish got a tip about the suicide on I-220 right before the press conference started.  JJ stands by the earlier post about the suicide.  JJ has the identity of the officer but will publish it after the families are notified.  It was rather surreal.  The phone is receiving tips about the suicide, Dave Kenny is showing the traffic stopped in both directions on I-220 on his iphone, meanwhile, we are having a press conference about the subject being under investigation.

It's only the perception of sex with a minor and a suicide.

Car wrecks cause 45 minutes to an hour stoppage on this road if the vehicles are in the road. Why does a suicide which I assume is on the side of the road cause the city of Jacktown to close the interstate for 2 hours?

Something is surreal, alright. What's surreal is continuing with the announcement about suspension of an individual who they know for a fact has committed suicide. WTF?

This POS will go to hell, straight to hell; he will not pass go, and he will not collect $200. So goes his game of Monopoly.

9:10, that's not your call, but there are plenty on here who assume they are God.

After the lawyer and the news reports mentioned the city was slow to respond to the complaint, the city wanted to be on record as having responded. Thus the rush to announce they were suspending a guy who was dead.

The chief of police needs to be fired. He is responsible for his officer. Let's see if Lubumba has the balls to do this.

I agree 10:06

If the chief was made aware on Saturday at the very least he has to step down. The fact that he committed suicide in a patrol vehicle on duty with a service weapon makes it even worse.

I feel bad for my hometown, and even worse for the victim. Jackson doesn’t deserve this, and more importantly the victim was failed on multiple levels.

On the news this morning it was said that the investigation is continuing. Why waste the resources on an investigation? I feel bad for all involved. The guy committing suicide is pretty much an admission of guilt. That coupled with the videos, to me, is an open and shut case.

Between Victor Mason and JPD, the city and the county are going to be broke, broke, broke. Didn’t your mom and dad teach your the morals of keep it in your pants son?

This will not end well for JPD or the Lumumba administration.

See for example:

This was a black cop with a black chief (and a black mayor) and that cop apparently had at least two black "baby mommas" and was getting freaky with a 15 year old black girl. And to cap (pardon the pun) it off he put one of the baby mommas into a situation by stealing her service weapon and giving himself a lead headache. Long story short, he shit down both legs and all over the floor. Some black women will put up with a lot of BS from a brother and some won't put up with much at all but damned few will put with this kind and amount of stuff. A whole bunch of righteously angry black women could easily be a political career ender for any target(s) of that group anger.

Was this man suspended before or after he took his life? I suspect "after" due to the hesitance this administration has exhibited in previous scandals.

I have a problem with this and no, most of you won't agree. I don't know the whole story but the first thing that came to mind was "set up." First off, Lisa Ross. Enough said. Secondly, why did it take 6 months for this to be reported. Thirdly, have y'all seen 15 year olds today? They look 25. They act 25. Their manipulation skills are extraordinary. Sounds like they were both in this and something didn't go her way. Lets run to Momma and Daddy and get some money. Meanwhile, a man who made a stupid decision took his own life. And before you get started, I am female.

The law is clear. 15 year olds cannot legally consent.

It’s rape.

He’s a cop and he knew how old she was.

He raped a citizen he should have protected.

Lisa Ross has zero to do with this.

9:10 you don’t think that her mother gave her too much freedom, and put the pieces together when it was too late?

InsertSarcasmHere said...

9:36 I get that but this continuation of the #metoo moment is about to get on my last nerve. When do we start to hold the people in the situations accountable to a degree? Where did the recordings come from? Obviously you've never had the "privilege" of working around Ms. Ross.

to 9:10 ..........your post proves that no one can hate a female , even a 15 year old minor female, more that another female.

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.
