Killing on Colonial Circle

JPD tweeted the following statements today.

JPD is investigating a shooting on Colonial Cir. near Old Canton Rd. occurring just before 10pm. Reports are that an individual has been wounded. No additional info is yet available.

UPDATE: Victim is male and is deceased. An unknown male exited a white sedan and fired several shots into the victim’s vehicle while he was stopped at the intersection. Suspect then fled west on Colonial Cir. Currently there is no motive.

Kingfish note: In front of Precinct 4.

This NEVER happened 15 years ago. THANK YOU FOR RUINING 39211.

Literally in view of Precinct 4, as you note. Makes it pretty clear that more police presence isn't always the solution. In many cases the problem is the Judge Green/Kidd catch and release special that puts these guys right back out on the streets. If you get caught and released, not only are you out there doing more crime, but you think (correctly) the consequences will not be severe if you do get caught.

NOTHING will change until we get these and the other incompetent judges OFF THE BENCH in Hinds County and replace them with judges and a DA who are competent and tough on crime.

I'm so glad I sold my home on Colonial Circle over 15 years ago. I saw the downward direction the whole neighborhood was headed toward and got the hell out while I could minimize the loss.

The lack of any form of description of the alleged murderer and victim leads my imagination to conjure up a kilt wearing scotsman shooting a ronin samurai delivering some late night cuisine from Thai Time.

But.....but.....that’s the ‘nice’ part of Jackson.

@12:42 that aint the nice part. Hasn't been for quite some time.

@1:15 then where is the nice part? The shooting happened on old canton road intersection with colonial. What area do the elites consider nice now? Most likely a five block radius that is an island.

It's the north end of Colonial Circle. Most folks call it Atkins. So not directly in front of P4

Sounds like a gang execution!

No motive? Ah....a sack of Krystals. Krystal is less than a half- mile north.

" Shooting on Colonial Cir. "

Never in a million years would I have expected such a headline back in the 70's.
( When we would ride our bicycles all over that neighborhood . . . even at night )

Oh well . . . times change.

If only I have my free guvment money and my cameras put up, this would have never happen. It is the state's fault.

years ago a friend from the middle east owned a home at that corner....he was so proud to have come to America and worked hard, married an American woman, had a daughter with BLUE EYES (yes he said that) and that he lived in the "rich section"....cancer got him a while back, glad he's not seeing this.

And yet another circlejerk...I wonder where Mayor Jackwe he the master of his domain or is that just perception?

Cynical Sam said...

This is only a few blocks from Baby Chok's home, but not to worry, as this is only a perception of a murder.

Well I see the deterioration of Jackson MS has no limits. This area has gone down hill for the past 10 years. The Northeast area of Jackson still looks nice but there are now boarded up and condemned houses. This is what happens when you have social justice warriors in politics. Police officers on desk duty because they are enforcing laws the mayor deems wrong. The new Hinds county DA and board of supervisors will turn Hinds county into a third world country. Rankin and Madison counties are the last hope for a safe environment to raise your family.

What's the # for the new year so far?

What was the final total for last year?

1:47pm In any city or town that has existed for decades, you can veer off a block or two and be in " the wrong section". If the houses are 2000 sq ft and haven't been well maintained or renovated in a long time and are near or abut commercial buildings, that's a hint.If they are larger homes that have been sectioned into apartments and look like they haven't been renovated in a long time near commercial areas , that's also a hint.

Many cities protect residential areas, even smaller, starter home communities by putting " buffers" like green spaces or high end retail shops and restaurants between the homes. Being near highways and high traffic commercial areas with no buffers so that liquor stores/ and fast food and gas places etc. and warehouse type stores can be built is not a good long term buy ever. It won't be in the " burbs" either.

Reports on Nextdoor of 3 shots fired this morning at 10:35 under the waterworks bridge. They captured an image of a silver 4 door Acura but couldn't get the tag.

The majority of Jacksonians and Hinds County residents have the government that they demanded over 20 years ago. Consequently, without the civic pride and support that keep other communities from breaking down, the whole city is in a downward spiral with no bottom in sight.

4:03 PM here. Let me correct that last statement:

Consequently, without the civic pride, competent leadership and respect for law enforcement that keeps other communities from breaking down, the entire city of Jackson is caught in a downward spiral with no bottom in sight.

4:40 pm There's an element that you miss in communities that thrive.
For lack of a better term, it's "noblesse oblige".
The people of wealth invested and continue to invest in their communities, particularly in the neighborhoods and insist that those in government protect the residential tax bases.
The towns and cities that continuously revitalize use laws that prevent the deterioration and commercial encroachment. They have strict building codes and the legal ability to prevent owners from abandoning property or allowing it to deteriorate. They have strict zoning regulations and do not allow commercial development to threaten residential communities.

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.
