Strip Club Owner Murdered on McDowell

 Jacktown Bud was shot to death at the Southside Barber & Beauty shop on McDowell Road.  

This is not the first time Laramie "Jacktown Bud" Collins was shot.  WAPT reported in 2016: 

Laramie Collins and Kamesha Brown were shot sometime around 6:30 a.m. on Bent Tree Drive. Collins suffered gunshot wounds to the chest and arm while Brown was struck in both legs.


Update: The street chatter is a man, hooded and masked, waited behind the building. He walked up to the vehicle and we'll, lit up Collins.  He left without taking a large sum of money in Jacktown Bud's possession.  

Collins is the owner of Pops, The Daquiri Bar, and several strip clubs.

Someone had a hair trigger?

Damn! Was afraid that the slackness over the past few days was gonna cause the city to fall below a new record for this year. But no fear, the gangs are still at work, we will certainly reach a new record for Lumumba's goal of creating a new city for all, based on his (and the controlling sister's) new community outreach.

Hate it for the family, but wonder how they all voted in the last election.

That must have been a hair raising experience for the customers.

Public Union said...

Jackson need a new mayor and police chief because all the mayor do is talk a good game but not doing anything to back it up

Public Union said...

Vote the Mayor our he ain't doing nothing to move Jackson forward from the day he was elected he was a major set back

The high murder rate is not the fault of the Mayor. It’s irresponsible parents who have children and then don’t teach them anything about right and wrong. It’s the media who tells them they are hated and will never have a chance in life. It’s the government that enslaved people with the addictive drug of dependence.

A lot of comments about on social media about this guy being killed. Saying things like “they fixing to tear Jackson up. For real”. So I assume a lot of retaliatory gang crime is about to happen. Never know when you will get caught in the crossfire.

Chowke's perception of murder has only reached last year's record of 128. With only a month to go, 150 is not likely. Maybe in 2022.

May be better stated by saying "was" the owner of those fine establishments!

Public Union… are you trying to sound uneducated or not an English speaker? While I agree with your points your English and speaking skills are such of a child! have you had any education in your past?

Thugs killing thugs. Allegedly, ‘ol Bud funded his ventures with dope money. There were killings at Aces club downtown, kept quiet by the city. Drug dealing in the club.

The joke is that his Facebook friends are babbling on about how he was trying to good things and his efforts were bringing Jackson up. Really? These people are the product of a terrible education system. They are the racist reality of low expectations by the black ruling class. Real shame.

Reminder that just like the previous 120+ Jackson murders, this one won’t garner national media attention either because such crimes are endemic.

Now if the shooter turns out to be white…. lord help us all they will riot from Toledo to Timbuktu.

I must agree with 10:02, and would ask Public Union, can you remind us for the record about the part where he "talked a good game"? That speech escapes me.

Anonymous said...

The comments on his Facebook pages make me wonder if any of his supporters/friends ever took English grammar. My God. Can you spell "run on sentences"?

I guess this means he won’t be able to open a club on Highland Colony!

Anybody in the 'nekkid bidness' is lucky to live past the ripe age of thirty-two. Nothing but crime, unGodly conduct and meanness exists inside and emanates from these dens of iniquity.

At least Harvey Johnson outlawed the sale of dildos at the toy-shop on 80 under the stack.

5:49, you seem to be an expert in all of that "smut stuff".

5:49 here. Nope, I just pay attention to my surroundings. If you disagree with the post, state your argument instead of chirping from the bleachers. Wait, don't tell me...Two wives divorced you for hanging out in the titty-bars.

10:44 - 5:49 is old enough to remember when strip club lawyer Matthew Moore was shot and killed.

Another life was stripped from a Jackistan resident. It was a close shave for those around him.

I remember when The Memphis Mafia brought the 'nekkid bidness' to Jackson. It was embraced and became a destination tour for local executives who had clients and business associates in town for a day or two.

Whether we're talking about the 8mm film strips available on Capitol Street 50 years ago or the VCR Skin-Flicks at the intersection of North State and Northside a decade later, the outcome should have been anticipated.

Why are the Strip Club Chairs sticky said...

"Strip clubs" What could go wrong?

OK, I’ll admit I’ve been to a few in Atlanta, Dallas and Houston. Once in Jackson years ago to please an out of town client.
The difference in the first three cities and Jackson was similar to watching a Major league game and a bad semi pro team.

I saw someone in the comments speak of the murder of attorney Matthew Moore, who represented the strip clubs in Jackson, in 1995. I tried and found little info online. Did they catch the suspect or figure out the motive?

a thug who runs a rat joint strip club and a cheesy bar gets dead and the know- it- all- keyboard cowboys of JJ go to work and show off their expertise about the adult entertainment business.
5;49 really needs to go home to his mother .
he seems a little insecure
you clowns sound like frank melton who blamed strip clubs for all of jacksons problems in order to divert attention away from his totally failed administration and the fact melton could not even get out of his own way.
i guess this crowd here on JJ still believes him.

Zatchu Ben? said...

One minute you pretend to be a psychologist and the next you're an expert on Municipal Public Administration. Keep bouncin' off them walls, 9:39. One day you'll make sense.

No one was arrested for Matthew Moore’s death. There was a rumor at the time that it was suicide. I have no idea.

Anonymous said...

9:39 makes plenty of sense. you don't know much about the history of the adult entertainment business in jackson, now do you zatchu ben??

to 9;14........if you only knew the about of money a well run, professionally managed strip club makes you would not be such a wise ass.

If this passes for a prominent businessman in Jackson now wonder that city has gone to shit. I never knew a strip club owner/night club owner would be considered important.

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.
