Shootout on Oakland

 JPD tweeted the following statement.

 JPD is investigating a shooting from last night in the 1600 block of Oakland Ave. One male was fatally injured and two others were wounded after an exchange of gunfire that occurred just after 10:30pm. A stolen vehicle and several firearms were recovered at the scene.  Suspects in the stolen vehicle fired shots into a vehicle at a residence critically wounding a male. Gunfire was returned fatally wounding a second male and injuring a third male. Incident is believed to be retaliation stemming from a prior incident. Charges are pending.

Kingfish note: #71.  Already surpassed the homicides during any year of Mayor Yarber's term.

RoboCop was set in 2028. Think Jackson can wait 7 more years?

Most likely a simple misunderstanding

I hope none of the zoo animals were hit by stray bullets.

well, That's 70 YTD, .38 per day or 45 per 100,000 if my math is right. That's pushing 3rd place in the U.S.

The Zoo should be Ok unless they were using rifles. Quite a few churches nearby -- maybe it's not too late to try and save the perps.

I didn't read where anyone succumbed, things must be improving.

10:38??? 45 per 100K sounds about right but what cities are ahead of Jackson???

"fatally wounded" means they succumbed. Scratch 2.

If only Jackson had conflict resolution classes to stop this type of violence. Oh, wait ... it does.

Chokewe's Statement "We as a collective community must come together and have a taskforce of volunteers to organically stop the crime that is invading our neighborhoods as a result of years of oppression and white flight out of our capital city. This gun violence that is plaguing our streets must be fought with a holistic approach that centers around community engagement and opportunistic meeting to resolve these violent situations"

How close am I?

Curfew and National Guard are both required and that’s after SO runs more patrols through all of Jackson daily.

12:26, please stop. I didn't bring my migraine meds to work and just reading what he has said or hearing his voice make me physically ill. Thank you in advance.

Attn 10:38 who are the cities killing at a higher per capita rate than the capitol city of mississsippi who ashamedly reelected an incompetent mayor by historic margins?

Clarion Ledger had another story about 60's civil right era on the front page today.
It's more important to regurgitate other's sins of the past instead of today's atrocities.

Chokwe Antar Lumumba is the Mayor of Jackson, Mississippi.

Asking for a friend !

Top Years for Jackson Murder:

2021 = 144 (Projection @ current rate.)

2020 = 130*

* Chowke Antard Lumumba Yearly Average = 99

1995 = 92
1994 = 91
2018 = 84*
1993 = 84
2019 = 83*
1991 = 76
2008 = 73
1996 = 67

1:37 PM — Those rankings I believe are from 2019 and Jackson didn’t report their 83 murders that would have put us in third nationally. 2020 we appear to have climbed to 2nd! Might make number 1 this year if St. Louis let’s up!!!

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.

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.
