Manhunt Ends in Capture

 Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement and mug shots. 


On Thursday evening, Rankin County deputies were dispatched to the area of George Warren Road near Shiloh Road for a report of an individual wanting to commit suicide or suicide by cop.

The report also stated that the individual, identified as RANDY GILMORE, had multiple firearms. Deputies immediately began searching the area to attempt to make conduct with GILMORE. Information was received that GILMORE may have obtained a ride and was soon thereafter spotted at Todd’s Country Junction at the intersection of Shell Oil Road and Highway 18. A Rankin County deputy quickly arrived on scene and attempted to make contact with GILMORE. GILMORE then fled to a wooded area near the store.

Additional Rankin County deputies were called to the scene to assist with the search. The initial search of the area was suspended, however deputies remained in the area throughout the night. A call came in this morning that an individual was trying to flag motorists down for a ride. The caller stated that the man fit GILMORE’S description. Deputies responded to the area and were able to quickly identify GILMORE and take him in to custody without further incident.
GILMORE was transported to the Rankin County Jail and charged with disorderly conduct/failure to comply. He will appear before a Rankin County Justice Court judge for his initial appearance.

New Gameshow for my fellow Rankin residents: Meth or Mental Illness?

Perfect example of someone who needs mental health care, not to be charged with a crime. "Failure to comply"? How does that help anything?

Whatever happened with the story about the Florence firefighter who was found in his attic?

Yes this is one of the fine examples of 21st century parenting. Kids are either crazy, communists or criminals. He seems quite happy to be under arrest. So there’s very little wondering why the country has turned into a shithole. Absolute nut jobs let loose on an unsuspecting nation. And to make matters worse the federal government has turned America into East Germany and Russia. Now rv eryone including the Postal Service spying on the public without probable cause or reason. Nobody seems to care much, because it hasn’t landed them in jail or they haven’t been stopped on the highway by armed thugs. That happened to some poor bastard in Portland today. He learned the hard way that the country’s coming apart like a cheap suit. Shameful.

What the man needs is mental help. What he doesn't need is firearms.

Were they allowed to pursue? In Chokweton, they wouldn't have been.

He was charged so they would have a reason to hold him for a mental evaluation. Without charges, he would have walked.

Take your meds and have a nap peepaw.

Glad this thug is off the streets

Good news is he’s very happy he was caught

Ouch @3:55 you hurt me to the core man. I’m sure you know I value your opinion tight. I don’t take meds but I may have to consider them now that you think I should. But when you get older and start paying taxes you may agree with me.... or not. Perhaps when you move out of mom’s basement and grow into an adult democrat.

2:56, I'm guessing meth, the side effects of which can be fairly characterized as various mental illnesses. But, once the meth is cleared from the system, most of the "mental illnesses" often clear up.

It’s gotten to the point where you can’t camp out in this country without being harassed

I actually know this dude. He’s had mental issues in the past but nothing serious. Praying for you brother.

If he were a black dude in Jackson this blog would punish his ass.

What if I told you one of his grandmothers is Dutch but the other one is from Kenya?

Let’s hear it peokkkple!

The boy done got hold of summa that Brookhaven weed. It's soaked in coal-oil and JW Dant. When you lite it up, it will lite YOU up.

Obviously the report of his plans was incorrect or he changed his mind.
If one thinks Jackson issues Blessings look at the mental health system. Did he commit a crime? Running from police, trespassing.

Why put the mugshot online to ridicule him?

Looks like he had the time of his life though

Paranoia seems to be rampant with many feeling that goblins and what not are everywhere,"kkk". Looking at you 606.

I never smile when I have mugshots taken, unwritten rule to look mean

KF—if no problem, could you report more about Jackson murders.

We only care about the bodies, that’s it.

Would there be as much ridicule if this poor fellow were suffering from cancer? He appears to me mentally ill -- but I'm no doctor. Let's say he's merely a drug addict . . . how big a charge can a normal Christian get lording it over some pitiful creature in even worse shape than he/she is?

I sincerely hope, for the sake of the more self-righteous amongst us, that the Second Coming and its attendant separation of sheep from goats is only a myth. All the better to avoid one-way passage to the place where the worm does not die and fire remains unquenched. Oh, that's right, you pitiful fux already live in Jackson. Sorry.

4:38 - I thought for a second that your post was from a Christian perspective. Then I realized how wrong I was.

His girlfriend dumped him and he beat her up, threatened her, and threatened to kill himself. There is more to the story than is being told but he is definitely nuts.

Anonymous said...

Thank God he didn't hurt anybody, and thank God he didn't hurt himself. Maybe this will be a triggering event so that he can get treatament. Unles you've had a family member suffering from mental illness such as what this man has (and I have), you can't imagine the absolute sense of helplessness and despair his family is feeling. I'm praying for him, and I sincerely hope everyone who reads this story will take 10 seconds to say a prayer for his recovery.

The rubberban between this guy's ears has snapped .

Reading in between the lines, this is a complex story. It is really encouraging and we are very very blessed and fortunate to have a law enforcement force willing to try and save a single life--it's amazing to think they had people on the lookout and ready for an entire day trying to find this person and stop them from committing suicide.

The afterwards--arrest and charged with a crime--that's the hard problem to solve. We need to give our law enforcement more tools to do great work in the community and save lives such as these--and think about how they can be a support mechanism for people in extreme mental distress.

That all depends on your societal view--and if you value rehabilitation and restoration of a fellow human as a core value.

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.
