If you own a building downtown and wonder why your insurance keeps going up, up, & up, see above. They keep up with stuff like this. That is why crime and the 3rd world county feel is a compounding effect. Not only is it dangerous, your insurance goes up, people start moving out and taxes and fees go up to cover the loss of revenue. Look at the West Rankin utility pulling out and the garbage fiasco. It may all be in the the Jackson-KUSH Plan handbook to create chaos and turn it into what it is becoming. I'm inclined to think Lumumba knows exactly what he is doing driving the tax payers out and making it a "black ran city". Whatever it is, the suitless mayor refuses to address it, which makes me believe he enjoys it.

Was this a shootout between groups/individuals or just someone shooting at a building?

Just yesterday the mayor was on the local TV news touting improvements to West County Line Road as opening up new economic frontiers for Jackson. Sorry to tell him, but there won't be any economic development anywhere in the city until he gets violent crime under control.

Did they put a hole in the window of the federal building? If they did that may actually get them charges Hinds county can't bless away or judicially fumble.

Jackson is an insult to 3rd world countries.

Stop picking on Lord Farquad. He's a dreamer -- not a doer. His job is to inspire and motivate others to act. Just 4 more years to get the plan implemented. It's radical; you'll see!

Just imagine how many dead people there would be in Jackson if they were not such poor marksmen. They were shooting at a car. That is a pretty large target. And they missed by so much.

You ain't seen nothing yet. Bidens agenda hasn't even kicked in good yet. War zone will not even begin to describe what is coming to us. And let me also send a special thanks to the 13000 voters . You represent that special group around the country who have somehow managed to take us all to hell.

fed up in Jackson said...

it's not that he refuses to address it, it's, me thinks, what a holistic approach looks like. We just are blinded by ignorance to see how it is building up steam to work one day.......right?!?!?

I commented on the other post. In charge of maintenace at Southside Assembly. Another instance of wayward youths they shot one of the fron windows out of the church and two bullets landed in the wall. It is also a constant battle with bullets landing on the roof and putting holes in it. Our roofer said he could make a decent living just fixing bullet holes in roofs throughout Jackson. Not only does your insurance go up, but your roofing budget increases 10 fold.

I have a friend who owns a type of repair company and after a few scares, he now requires 2 employees (for safety) to be on each call in the city of Jackson.

Someone is going to have to pay the additional cost he incurs to send two people on a 1 man job.

The ripple effects of this insane lawless land are far and wide.

But by all means residents, keep the status quo.

The Mayor couldn't manage a lemonade stand let alone a city that needs a police department makeover. But, hey, I'm just glad he's woke, so I can continue to vote for him.

@12:49 you joke about poor marksmanship, but the murder rate would quadruple if the state’s only level 1 trauma center was not in Jackson. How many Jackson shooting victims does UMMC treat a year that survive potentially fatal wounds?

Serious Question for Y'all said...

No takers to my question in the other thread, so I will repost it here.

Serious question: Instead of ranting on here, Nextdoor, FB, etc., why aren't the honest taxpaying citizens of Jackson organizing and having peaceful, well attended protests in front of city hall, weekly?

Who's taking odds on whether the owners of Landmark Center will get that window repaired before or after they eradicate the black mold from the burst water pipe and get the elevators working again?

I'm in shock !

Shock I say !!

I'm shocked this happened within 48 hours of the latest
"peace Parade/prayer rally"!

Much less ... within 48 hours of the highly effective JPD crime prevention tool: (3 on 3) "Peace basketball" game.

I have NOT been downtown in almost a year or more but while I was using the Pearl Street exit going into and exiting the city I was totally SHOCKED at the amount of trash and how horrible the city's entranced looked! Of course the fair is in town but still entrance to the city must be maintained to look presentable as well says a lot too!

Can't protest in front of City Hall, too dangerous to park, then risky to walk to and from the car. Mental case beggars down there are aggressive and threatening.

I'd like a higher quality slate of candidates to vote for.

Somebody did something.

The chase should have happened in front of city hall! Maybe the bullet holes would let the hot air out of the mayors office!

The only place in Jackson I'd feel relatively safe is Eastbrooke, but bullets do fly.,. I love old neighborhoods and am not thrilled with new-ish Stepford developments, but they are safer. i got no place to go unless i can drag Oxford here, wall it in and cut the prices.bigly.

I need an armed Mayberry, and I don't mean Canton.

Stupid is as Stupid Voters Do said...

@3:51 PM - that is a lame excuse. Then protest SOMEWHERE!

Does this mean that the balloon release didn't stop crime? That Real Time Crime Center should kick in anytime now.

The simple answer is there's not enough outraged citizens.

3:10, that is both creative and funny!

The real simple answer is that the majority of people left in Jackson makes their living by unlawful means or has a family member that does. Of course they care more about the thug than they do other people who are dumb enough to remain in the cesspool.
It will take several generations before the people of Jackson become law abiding citizens. First the parents have to care enough about their kids to demand a school system that actually teaches the kids. That will not happen anytime soon. Second they will have to instill in their kids a desire to become something better than a drain on society.
Don't expect that to happen since there isn't any parents left in Jackson that will make the effort.

I thought the Tindell Department of Public Safety was supposed to have the Capital secured.

Thanks for the belly laugh.

Hollywood Sean Tindell, Tater's buddy, out to pull the wool over everyone's eyes. He's done nothing for public safety.

For years the promoters of downtown Jackson have fed the woke a line of BS about how safe downtown Jackson is. They say it is the safest part of town. What say they now?

Anonymous said...

"The simple answer is there's not enough outraged citizens." I don't believe that what is left in Jackson actually fits the definition of citizens. Sure, a few do, but overall.....

Just curious, but am I the only one that actually see’s humor in it all. I know it’s really not relevant but I’m now 65, grew up in south Jackson and sadly even invested in Jackson real estate back in the day. Needless to say I’m no longer paying taxes there but I actually see humor in what is taking place not only in Jackson but Hinds county as a whole. It’s like watching a constant train wreck on a daily basis and you can’t turn away.

Head down Capital Street on any Sunday afternoon after 4 pm and observe the mayhem. It has been this way for quite a while.

Now some vacant buildings have broken windows. Meh

The only citizens that are actually outraged by this constant criminal activity and violence are too busy going to work and running businesses to waste time “ organizing protests” in front of city hall! Protesting and demonstrations are tools of the Left and WOKE! Leftists are the only citizens who have time for that. The real answer is for concerned citizens to sell their property in Jackson for whatever they can get for it and leave Hinds county ASAP!

Anonymous said...

Holy crap @8:38 are you forgetting the nearly decade long harangue about the creative class and how hordes of 'creatives' where poised to move downtown as soon as (if only) housing was available?

The ONLY Mississippi media outlet that detailed the massive disconnect between that spin job garbage and reality was JJ. ONLY.

More urban renewal in the radical third world city of Jackistan.

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.

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.
