Put Up or Shut Up?

 The Jackson Municipal Airport Authority delivered an ultimatum to Jackson commentator Othor Cain: Put up or shut up and oh, save everything you got.  

Mr. Cain made some rather strong claims about JMAA two weeks ago on his Facebook page. The JMAA Board of Commissioners took none too kindly to his remarks so it sent a cease and desist letter on May 7.  The letter is posted below.



Mr. Cain blew off the letter in a Facebook video on May 12. He said something about how a hit dog will holler. Mr. Cain made it clear he will not stop commenting on the airport. 

Kingfish note: As Mr. Cain's comments are the subject of a possible defamation suit, they will not be repeated in this space.  So are the Commissioners really trying to shut up Mr. Cain or are they more interested in finding out who is talking to him?

Dorsey Carson....A friend the the Jackson status quo.

A public body cannot be defamed. That is black letter law. This letter is just a bunch of mumbo jumbo meant to intimidate him.

KF, you think Dorky Carson could help you procure those documents you requested, or advise his clients they should give you a copy? Just a thought.

A letter written for the sole purpose of trying to impress your client.

Why are you such a coward, Kingfish?
Just say JJ is a platform and our comments are free speech.
Grow a damn spine!

Keep it up Cain. They be a squirming. By the way, anyone know, Southwest still gonna control crash here in June.

There are several typos in this letter. "Sever" (they meant "severe") and "spoilation" just to name a couple.

Well the Kingfish and Othor have more often sparred than aligned over the years, yet both are targets of the JMAA. What does this indicate? A hit dog does holler - KF, you better be careful or you’ll get a Dorsey letter too!

JMAA brought such bi-partisan scrutiny on itself with poor (at best) management decisions. Seems as if the firings, contracting decisions, trips, withholding public records, runway debacles, etc. are coming home to roost. Hiring Carson as counsel almost in itself confirms what many suspect.

It IS telling that one JMAA board member with something at stake (a bar license, a CPA license) recently resigned. What does that board member know or suspect?

So, I can get a lawyer to send a letter "giving notice" to anyone to demand a person, or firm, "...not to destroy, conceal, or alter any documents, tangible things...relevant to the issues in this cause..." ?

Really? Somehow that seems to need a court edict to have any value. (Not a Cain fan)

Henley can't proclaim any innocence. He and Lawanda did their best imitation of the NWO for years on that board. Ask Carl Newman.

If they were doing what they were supposed to be doing, they would not be worried about the critics... Otha or Kingfish.

I didn't know there was such a thing a "liability in tort for spoilation of evidence."

I'll chalk the misspelling up to autocorrect. Unless I'm missing something, I believe the Spoliation Doctrine may give rise to an evidentiary presumption, but I don't think it actually creates liability.

Generally speaking, I'm more suspect of people who write 7 page letters than I am of people who receive them.

KF, next month you need to do a public records request for the billing records sent to write this frivolous garbage. As a Hinds County taxpayer, I'd love to know how much I spent on this chimeric masterbatory effort.

This is OUR airport.

If by "OUR" you mean the general public, I agree with you.

Last night I found the JMAA board meetings are now posted on the JMAA YouTube channel. Appear to go back about 3 months. I watched portions of the last 2 meetings and the commissioners seem a bit stressed....advising staff and the public that all is OK. It gave the impression that things are not OK.... God bless Paul Brown.

As a public entity, can they even claim defamation? Who is he representing? The board members, individually, or the JMAA entity?

Yeah, I definitely hope Mr. Cain preserves all of his “Lotus 1-2-3” and “WordPerfect” documents.

Jesus, Dorsey. This template is about 25 years old.

Mr. Cain is well within his 1st amendment rights to say whatever he’d like about the JMAA and the board as an entity.

Dorsey keeps taking on these questionable clients... first Rudy and now these guys.... hmmm
I hope y’all keep up the pressure. Can you imagine how well this airport could be if there was competency in staff and on the board? Since Hawkins is their “crown jewel” let the city of Jackson keep it. If I were the state I would give them 50m for the airport and move on. They would make it all back on economic development on the parkway property. Right now JMAA does not stand a chance to get any state economic development grants or any other state funds.

I used JAN for the first time in a year this month. Because the long term parking garage was closed, I had to park in the surface lot near the round-a-bout. Since I was at ground level, I entered the terminal at baggage claim only to find the escalator up out of service. Not wanting to lug a full-sized suitcase up a flight of stairs, I backtracked across the street to the parking garage elevators to find only one of two working. When the doors opened, 5 of the 6 lights in the one working elevator were out.

Just for kicks, I checked on the elevators on my return a week later. Still only the one working. Still only one working light bulb in the one working elevator.

I'm so tired of attacks that fail to specifically describe what mistakes were made and provide proof that evidence existed to avoid the mistake.

Add to that, the absence of better alternatives to whatever decisions made or policies taken are glaring.

11:12 AM - Can you please decipher your post. Thanks.

Libel hasn't been punishable as a crime since 1971.

I'm curious if that's how long it's since Carson's template has been updated.

Where state criminal libel statute did not purport to define the crime of libel but dealt exclusively with punishment, and where there had been no state decisions redefining the crime since the United States Supreme Court held that the First Amendment was made applicable to the states by the Fourteenth Amendment, leaving the law to be made on a case to case basis, the elements of the crime of libel were so indefinite and uncertain that it would not be enforced as a penal offense.  Boydstun v. State (Miss. 1971) 249 So.2d 411.

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.
