He ain’t hurting nobody

It’s a set up. No reason to be doing this at a busy intersection other than to film it when the cops show up and then post it on the internet

What in the hell was he thinking? He'd better move to the Jackson side of County Line Road for his performances, like the panhandlers do.

Before we get the yelling of Racism if the cops did ever show up:
§ 97-35-23 - Obstructing public streets, etc.; intentional obstruction of, or interference with, vehicle or pedestrian

Universal Citation: MS Code § 97-35-23 (2013)

(1) It shall be unlawful for any person or persons to intentionally obstruct, or interfere with the normal or ordinary free use and passage of vehicles of or on, any public street or highway provided for use by vehicular traffic, or for any person or persons to intentionally obstruct, or interfere with the normal or ordinary free use and passage of pedestrians of or on any public sidewalk provided for foot travel by pedestrians, and any person or persons who so do shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine of not more than four hundred dollars ($ 400.00), or by imprisonment in the county jail for not more than four (4) months, or by both such fine and imprisonment.

He's being doing this all over the area including Rankin County. The only thing I see wrong is this is a dangerous intersection and not safe and/or if he interfering with someone. Otherwise, move to a safer area and sing and dance on.

Usually the other God Squad sets up across the street at the Wendy's corner during the PM rush. More drivers coming through then.

This is the corner where the former Highlands Church, Word of Life Church is. Do we know that this isn't affiliated with them? Or, did they randomly just pull up and setup this equipment?

If the latter is true, then this is why we can't have nice things...

All this stimulus money & unemployment money is why you are seeing more of this. They get paid to sit at home so they think of this weird s**t to do than put it on streaming video; Tik-Tok, Youtube, facebook, instagram.

"Yeah Ridgeland police aren’t gonna let that go on like Jackson cops do". Yeah they do let some obstruction by pedestrian go on. There is a pleasant but probably mentally disturbed gent who, I believe, works at the Crawfish Shack next to Walgreens that feels N Old Canton Rd is his personal sidewalk. I always worry about him getting hit.

@9:21, they're not on the street or sidewalk. Where's the violation of that code section?

I support this. Do your thing.

What the bloody hell?!?! How long did it take the Ridgeland PD to shut down that freak show??

Kingfish said...

Um, no. Its in front of Walgreens.

Shut it down. More than a few people don't want to hear that crap cranked up.

Don't be so sure JPD won't shut that down either. Some woman tried to do that a few months ago at Parham Bridges. JPD showed up and put an end to it as it should have done.

... like the panhandlers do.

Six panhandlers, er, dignity economy workers, collecting tithes at I55/Lakeland yesterday morning @ 10:30 AM.

Shirley he must have to get a permit to let his freak flag fly?

I may go out there and do da butt

In response to 9:21 comment, "they're not on the street or sidewalk. Where's the violation of that code section?" It sure does appear that these folks are on the sidewalk and common property of Ridgeland. Then we have our dancer, overtaken by the power of something dancing and twirling in an active roadway with traffic going around him to avoid getting a dent on the hood and bumper.

Stated this would come up: "And dare I add how many of you are pure dee ol' racists?"

you ignorant hillbillies need to get out of this boring state more often. This is a common occurrence in states with actual growing economies and real tourism.

Kingfish, supposed lover of New Orleans, can’t stand street performances? Good grief!

Mental illness takes many forms. There are thousands of people who were born outside love and raised in hellish environments, now they just want to be seen, recognized. Violence is next. Get ready.

You can keep your 'urban culture' thanks. If you love it so much why don't you live in New Orleans?

Stopped and requested Huey Lewis' "The Power of Drugs." This great artist was intimately familiar with it.

"you ignorant hillbillies need to get out of this boring state more often"

Let's see, we've produced Faulkner, Elvis, Grisham, Welty, Faith Hill, Oprah, Morgan Freeman, and Donna Tartt.
We've done pretty well in the arts, especially music.

Maybe you should open YOUR ignorant eyes, Bub.

The guy is a nut. He thinks he is Michael Jackson. I saw him at the corner of Clay St and Mission 66 in Vicksburg a few months ago. Lip syncing to Michael "show me your butthole" Jackson is not a talent.

Oh hell, I thought this was the sign of Pepsi Pops on the Rez was coming and life is getting back to normal after the covid scam.

This is not a race issue from my perspective--- its a behavior and quality of life issue. This type of activity is a slippery slope ---crime and other anti-social behavior tend to proliferate when there is lax enforcement of laws and ordinances. Litter on County Line Road has increased significantly, and is making its way to Old Canton and into Ridgeland. The recent brawl at the restaurant in Ridgewood Court is making the whole area less attractive. Lets not surrender the city.

How many of the names on that list stayed in Mississippi?

Checkmate, Hayseed.

Jed Clampett said...

Well doggy, just exactly what area of the great state of Mississippi do the "hillbillies" come from? It has been mostly flat where I have been.

Anonymous said...

12:07 Exactly. Jackson is experiencing a cultural shift that, in every other instance, has led to a disorderly, crime-ridden society. That cultural wave is just propagating in all directions (such is true nationwide, unfortunately)

Anonymous said...

@12:13 half of them, Faulkner, Grisham, Welty and Mr. Freeman still has a residence here. Which I believe would move remove one from Checkmate.

Dancing on a sidewalk isn’t a crime anywhere in the United States. Who are you people, the Taliban?

Anonymous said...

I dare say the Mississippi resident that has the potential to do good things in this state, but does the least of any celebrity from here is Oprah. She has a big ranch in Maui though.

Somebody needs a lot of attention. How ignorant to dash in and out if traffic.

Anonymous said...

I don't care if it's New Orleans, Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago, or Jackson, It All depends on What Part of Town this bullshit happens. In some places it would hardly be noticed, in fact since it's peaceful, it would probably be welcome. In other parts of town it's completely inappropriate.

Hell, there are parts of Jackson where gunshots aren't even noticed. Really.

Anonymous said...

12:13, let's just quote Morgan Freeman, 4th highest ranked actor by pay, with gross box office returns of 4.135 Billion Dollars, when asked.

"The big question was, 'My Lord, you can live anywhere in the world you want, why did you choose Mississippi?' " said the 68-year-old actor, who agreed to play tour guide during a recent visit.

"My glib answer was, because I can live anywhere. But the true answer is that of any place I've ever been, this feels most like home. When I come here, when I hit Mississippi, everything is right."

Sorry you hate yourself and Mississippi. Do us a solid and move.

Actual checkmate, checkers player.

At least he's not a rural preacher from Tennersee with a bullhorn yelling at people eating a chicken salad.

If he wore a yellow KC vest, a fireman's hat and held out a boot, while stopping traffic, he'd be good to go.

@10:02, if you heard what the crawfish guy is yelling about White people when he’s roaming, you wouldn’t.

@9:56am you better check your maps. You on the wrong side of 51.

"This is a common occurrence in states with actual growing economies and real tourism."

I'm lost as to how this might help grow an economy or foster tourism. Can you elaborate? People are pissing on the streets and sleeping, en masse, under the I-10 bridge in New Orleans, too. Looking forward to your follow-up post.

Around the mid 2000's, parents of the Northwest Rankin High School Band started using the same gimmick on East Spillway Rd.

Traffic back-ups forever !

I found abut 2000 washers in my father-in-law's workshop, and started dropping a hand full into their goofy "collection" boots.

I would smile and say, "here's about $15 dollars worth of quarters".

It worked so well that I started doing the same thing with the professional homeless in front of St.D and the Jackson side of County Line at Ridgewood.

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.
