Double Homicide

Was deceased a murder suspect free on bond? 

JPD issued the following statement. 

Jackson Police are investigating a shooting that occurred around 1:00am this morning in the 3800 block of Bailey Ave. 24 year old Richard Tannner and 20 year old Cleophus Walker III we’re shot  and succumbed to their injuries at the scene. Suspect information unavailable at this time.

 Kingfish note: Was the deceased Walker the same Cleophus Walker indicted for murder and free on bond? 

JPD arrested Cleophus Walker on October 4, 2019 for the August 31, 2019 murder of Michael Hopson at 905 West Northside Drive.  JPD also charged him with the shooting of Juliano Wells on the same day. A Hinds County grand jury indicted Walker for first-degree murder and aggravated assault. Circuit Judge Faye Peterson reduced his bond to $200,000 in January. 

Walker's birthday is November 22, 1999.  The press release states he is 20 years old but it is not uncommon for such mistakes to be made in press releases.   The indictment just states he is Cleophus Walker, no "III" is included.  However, the Hinds County website does not show a Cleophus Walker in custody.  

So..... was this deceased gentleman free on bond for murder and if so, could this be a case of street justice?

Back to back record years for homicide and we are blowing past it in 2021
And 85% of Jackson said bring everybody back for 4 more years. Plus we got lead in water. This is Improvement from four years ago i don't think so. Whatever we get from The Feds better be put in infrastructure every dime. Fix everything. If One Diem is spend on parties or consultants, or planning sessions or weekend junkets the entire council and Mayor should go to jail.

Lumumba said after Friday's triple murders that he was "saddened to learn about today's events". So now murders have now become events. Unbelievable.

Isn't Lumumba's sister getting a bunch of grants to reduce violence?

A triple, a single, and now a double. Is that in 24 hours or nine innings? Sounds like past time to change "Pitchers" to me, right?

Where is the "Credible Messenger"? On vacation? Working overtime down at the water billing department? Just where is/are this/these person/peoples? Right?

There's a whole lot of succumbing going on. Or is it just the perception of succumbing?

We need a quad murder, and we will have killed for the cycle!

It seems to me Jackson has a very high shooting-to-kill ratio. It's like people actually know what they are doing when they decide to take somebody out. Gone are the days when bullets are sprayed everywhere and nobody gets hit, or some dumbass shoots himself in the leg with his own gun. I'm thinking probably gang members who are used to handling firearms.

Sure glad the village idiot Kenneth I. Stokes asked for a "cease fire". What a clown.

People are being murdered in Jackson and the best you can do is crack jokes?

Forty singles, a triple, two in the batter's circle is a grand slam. Oddly, nobody walks.

Before he became a liberal democrat, Michael Bloomberg as mayor of New York, showed how serious policing can seriously tamp this down. Somehow, Jackson has to get past the idea that arresting the people who commit crimes and more heavily policing the areas where most crimes are committed, is somehow "racist".

Jackson is now 2 months ahead. Last year marked 46 at 6/14/202 and 48 at 6/20/2020. I believe we'll be at 150 this year.

47 = No. of murders since Jan 1. (4/18/21)
108 = No. of days since Jan 1
0.435 = Avg. murders per day
365 = Days per years

108 * 0.435185185185 = 158 by end of year.

I was going to comment on the triple murder but this double murder happened before I could write it. I would comment on this one, but I think I'll wait until Monday and comment on that one(or two). If I forget there's always Tuesday. Stand by.

@2:39 AM - 3:22 PM here - yep, and if you are going to visit this blog you need to put on your big boy pants, snowflake, or slither back to your safe space, bucko.

2:39 a.m. - What do you suggest that might be more beneficial? And, if not worrying about a bullet coming thru your front window, why the hell are you awake at that hour?

What do you suggest Lumumba say that might be more beneficial?

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.
