If, by chance, they substantiate the "dope boys" relationship with Chok, please update to this blog.

You're going to bring all those people together for ONE HOUR? You'll need at least three if you're going to let each of them speak for five minutes and then open up the floor to questions.

I would really like to know what this forum intends to accomplish that they’ve been unable to accomplish in Baltimore, Detroit, Atlanta, St. Louis, Cleveland, New Orleans, Chicago, DC, Memphis, and all of the other cities that top the list for crime and murder in the USA?

10:06 AM, agreed. 45 min if you subtract the pleasantries. 30 min if you subtract the farewell bidding at the end.

So, dedicating 30 min to solve the world's problems.

Arranging deck chairs on the titanic long enough for the richest residents of his ward sell their property for the least amount of loss.

Jackson is like a gangrenous foot. You Leftovers and Fondrenites need to cut your loses if you want to survive. You can’t save it Jackson. Do it now before you end up like the holdouts in South Jackson. The re-election of Antar should be the final wake up call.

Waste of time. I guarantee the same words will be spoken as we have heard before. Nothing anyone in that group can do will change anything, unless one is willing to say what the root cause is, This is a decades long problem beginning in the 1960s with LBJ’s great society and the welfare state. Too many fatherless homes, a breakdown in the family structure, children having children, which leads to all of the other problems, poor education, decaying social fabric of the community,I could go on and on. When children are raised with no structure, not learning the difference between right and wrong, no one that really cares about them, the results are what we have now. This is a problem that is generational and will take generations to change. So unless this group is willing to speak the truth they are wasting time.

I commend him for trying to do SOMETHING, for once.

Headline written by the same person who engraved "Chowke" and designed the mayor's letterhead (Officer of the mayor)?

Should be: Join us for a community conversation with local businesses about crime.

Step one get the gun shows out of Jackson. These gun shows have destroyed the city. The only place these guns can be purchased is at a once a quarter swap meet where guns are sold for 50% more than normal and ammo is sold by the once like gold. It would make no sense to knock out windows and steal the guns. I bet all the car burglaries are stealing CD's and Cell Phones. Thugs want their guns for a premium and documented.

The obligatory Powerpoint will show:

Mayor's Real Time Crime Center in action (file photo)
White flight (false narrative)
Trump's fault
Gun shows

Missing will be:

Judge what's her name handing out blessings to violent felons
Kids raised by auntie/grandma
Drag racing while JPD officers smoke and joke on the sidelines
JPD officers with hands tied due to Chowke's progressive mandates
Racist city council attitudes towards white-owned businesses

This is just playing Mister Rogers Land of Make Believe.
Why? Because you can’t say or do anything meaningful about the crime without being “offensive” so everyone will just pretend to do something that is really nothing and so nothing will change.

What it will take is drastic measures -- criminal profiling and stop-question-and-frisk tactics would go a long way. But, no politician has the stomach for it, and the media would fuel public crucifixion for any proponent. And, what LEO wants to approach a gang-banger's thumping car, knowing he's probably armed to the teeth?

A reasonable crime discussion in Jackson would need more than an hour.

Anonymous said...

What Jackson needs is one of those "common sense" crime discussions. "Common sense" is one of those progressive buzz words that means "we know what's good for you, so STFU."

In other news, Jackson has again been named #1 in America's list of third-world cities.

Jackson's crime problem is deeply rooted in it's "court" system. All one has to do is look at the existing "rap sheets" of the perps committing the violent crimes to find the real issue. Jackson voters apparently just like living in the debacle they've created.

I wonder if Virgie will participate ?

After all, this also an issue for the Fondren and the Belhaven.

The meeting was held where no adjacent neighborhoods are affected one whit about what happens at the MBar,or much east of I-55.
If you'd held it at one of the hotels near the M-Bar, you might have gotten better attendance and a few ideas from those with enough personnel knowledge of the MBar to make cogent suggestions.

Frankly, we've too many guys who think packing a gun makes them more" manly".

A real man can use his brain better than his other body parts to solve disputes.

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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
