Proud for Brad. The Dude hung in there as attorney for Pelahatchie at a time when lesser men would have just resigned and told that incompetent mayor to go f*ck herself.

What does Pelahatchie Mayor have to do with the appointment of Brad Mills? Confused. Sounds like a bitter person.

Good guy. Proud of him.

"The Dude hung in there as attorney for Pelahatchie at a time when lesser men would have just resigned and told that incompetent mayor to go f*ck herself..."

...the same attorney who told the mayor that it was proper and legal for the town to be using the drug seizure funds the way they were? And I'm not sure how he "hung in there" when he resigned just over a year into his position, but ok.

The same month he resigned from Pelahatchie and began a part time position as a public defender for the circuit court, Rankin County paid him nearly $7,000. Hm. Good for him, though.

As far as your disrespectful and bitter comment about the mayor, you may as well give up on that. People know the truth now. She's a far more competent and determined leader than most people would be in her position. Pelahatchie did something right when they elected her.

Good for Mills for this appointment, though. Seriously.

Couldn't be more thrilled. It's about time we get someone who is not a prosecutor/cop in that position.

There are dozens of more qualified experienced people to serve in this role.

He won’t win an election to this seat imo as other more deserving people will run to fill this seat.

"...working hard to protect the rights of Mississippians." OK, Tate, if you say so.

to 4:28....permit me to post a translation to your comment............''..there are dozens more qualified loudmouth ,fat-ass, ignorant, neo-nazi , red-neck members if the rankin county republican party political machine to serve in this role.''

back in 2010 a certain rankin county circuit judge allowed a criminal defendant to be prosecuted for burglary by his own former defense lawyer whom had met and discussed the case with the defendant a dozen times. the jury convicted and the supreme court reversed the case on a unanimous opinion. unanimous opinions are a very rare occurrence . dont take my word for it. read all about it in state v kevin d. ethridge.

this is the sort of thing that usually happens in iran, cuba, or red china, but it happens here all the time but its covered up by the republican party




bosses to save the judge from embarrassment. that certain circuit court judge was on the cusp of retirement at the time, so this matter was kept very quite so as not to sully his media-manufactured reputation as ''a quiet man''.

A ambulance chasing personal injury lawyer will now be hearing tort claims in Rankin County. What a horrible appointment.

Southern Scrutiny @842, bless your heart. No one from Pelahatchie thinks she is competent. Even the black folks. You’re trying to fight a battle that will make you look like an idiot in the end. So thankful the Ryshonda era will be over soon. Can you answer this question? Was Ryshonda living in Pelahatchie before she ran for mayor, or after she was elected? Whatever happened to her private counsel Bellinder? Haven’t heard much from him lately. He give up on her antics too?

Congrats to Brad!

@8:51 I don't even have to look it up to know it was Chapman. One of the worst judges to ever sit on the bench. He never seemed to understand, as most judges in Rankin type counties don't, that his job description and true justice demandsed he protect the rights of the accused just as fiercely & fairly as those of the state. And I'm certainly not saying he should have been soft on real crime but he was over there sentencing people to 20 years or more cause someone accused them of eating their hamburger without their permission and im only slightly exaggerating..

People regurgitating corporatist propaganda "ambulance chaser". You are buying into what the socially far left woke corporations are selling you so that they can get away with hurting people without losing money. lIbErTaRiAnIsM rOcKs!

Abortion, BLM, transgenderism combined with depriving poor/middle class people of ACTUAL JUSTICE when they are hurt by a corporation. What a combination.

I am as conservative as they come and cannot stand when people are stupid enough to buy into this "ambulance chaser" nonsense. Do you realize that without the "ambulance chasers" you would never be able to hold a corporation accountable if they severely injured you or your family?

Open your eyes.

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.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
