Police & Jackson Residents Discuss Crime

 Jackson Ward 1 City Councilman Ashby Foote and Ken Wilson held a community forum on crime last night.  Sheriff Lee Vance and JPD Chief James Davis spoke and answered questions from the audience.  JJ estimates 80 people attended the forum, excluding media and police.  The video is posted below. 

I will have to write the post later.  I many not be able to approve comments for at least an hour.

Let's meet. Let's discuss. Let's have a roundtable discussion. Let's have an open forum. Let's do a study. Let's hire a consultant.

I don't want people who discuss and study. I want people who accomplish, do, work, succeed.

Talking about this stuff doesn't fix it. We all know what needs to be done. Quit talking and do it.

Did they end the meeting with a group hug while singing kumbaya?

Congratulations! Another meeting... another attempt to solve an impossible situation. Murders take place due to lack of various moral basics that value life and truly punish those who refuse to follow set moral standards. Too much of "leadership" wants to blame others for low community standards when the standards were lowered in the 1960s and 1970s. Rather than call for forgiveness of past wrongs and push for personal responsibilities, these "leaders" continue to hold future communities responsible for the stupidity and immoral actions of previous generations.

Don't try to improve yourself. Don't strive to be a hard worker and valuable part of society. Just continue to be an animal without an education and work experience. Take your drugs and pump out new kids without parental oversight.

In science we know a creature that does this -- it's called a parasite. And just like in science when parasites kill the host, eventually the social parasites will kill this society -- and it's not just one race, a parasite is colorblind.

The only press conference that would make a difference...

The City of Jackson and the Jackson Police Department are proud to announce that we have partnered with Omni Consumer Products to Deploy 500 units of the ED-209 to patrol the streets of Jackson!”

80 people in attendance. Wow. That’s just sad. Nothing will ever change when apathy by the residents of Jackson rules the day.

Okay 2:03, share with all of us "what needs to be done"?

Just passing through with a VW Microbus full of garbage said...

I'll need the owner of the M-Bar to tell me where to dump the garbage on his property so that a clean up effort will enhance the safety of his patrons. The 2 instances of "Kingfish Color Commentary" are hilarious. The first one with the cop trying to explain the crime reporting sounds like an absolute "administrative gap" to me. Look folks. It's simple. 39211 is the remaining "Crown Jewel" of the dying City of Jackson, and what you are seeing going on with the escalating crime---in that part of the City---falls directly under Mayor Chokwe's "any means necessary" part of his FREE THE LAND Marxist mantra. Right.

You are absolutely right @2:03 PM. I'm so fucking tired of going to meetings (in person and virtual).

I guess perceived beats real problem. Agree, only 80 showed up, shameful. Will never listen to these self destructive people anymore. Apparently love getting their asses wupped by their own people.

So the Soros backed Jody Owens is saying we're not arresting/prosecuting enough people.

Meanwhile, the Koch backed Empower MS- Russ Latino and Grant Callen- just shoved parole reform down our throats to put more criminals back on the streets.

Republicans need to wake up and realize Jody Owens-JODY OWENS- is doing more for putting criminals away than libertarians like Empower MS.

Think about that.

Where was our lamebrain mayor?

The community had a meaningful "dialog".

Gawd, what a joke.

A Jackson "Prayer Vigil" may have more effect.

Let me guess, plaques were awarded, streets were renamed, and everyone ignored the true cause of this thug culture.

Yet another societal problem solved by a meeting. Great job guys!

King, from what you could tell, were any staffers from the JFP/MFP and/or Barksdale Today in attendance?

@6:15 Sorry, you've confused a symptom with a cause.

"Meanwhile, the Koch backed Empower MS- Russ Latino and Grant Callen- just shoved parole reform down our throats to put more criminals back on the streets."

True. Although Latino denies any Koch association. This is Gerard's baby. He single-handedly brought Latino back to Jackson from where he belongs....Up north.


Forums, meetings, discussions, white boards, black boards, flip charts, convocations, round-tables....Every swingin'-deck knows none of those work....unless you have breakout sessions. Breakout sessions are what's missing.

Call the peeps together and immediately populate breakout sessions. Problem solved.

@7:52 AM - Your ideas would only work if there were powerpoint slides presented.

Latino denies Koch association? His salary was almost entirely paid by the Kochs through Americans for Prosperity for years and years when he worked there.

They claim to be conservative and for the people but in reality they're for left wing woke corporations and for letting criminals back out onto OUR streets. Not their neighborhoods, not the neighborhoods of Koch or Soros or Latino, OUR neighborhoods are harmed by these reprehensible policies.

Why the meeting? I thought all parties in the war had agreed to a cease fire....

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. 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.
