The Scrum for Sheriff

 It's time to focus on the Hinds County Sheriff's race. Posted below is the debate held last Thursday night at Jackson State University. It is a good opportunity to become familiar with the two candidates who want your vote.


all the plans are nice, but it's time to inject a little bit of reality into this mess. The sheriff's office simply does not have the manpower to fight crime in Jackson as it once did thanks to the consent decree. It will not be surprising if the jail is placed under receivership. The Sheriff has to dump manpower and money into the black hole that is the Raymond Detention Center. Conceived in the original sin of graft and incompetence, the jail has born some poisonous fruit indeed.   The Sheriff is the only law enforcement protection for the unincorporated parts of Hinds County. Thus, the Sheriff probably only has two dozen or so deputies to spare for fighting crime in Jackson.

Free the inmates. Problem solved.

The fact that people are seriously considering Crisler at this point really makes me sympathize with the men and women of the sheriff's dept

Who cares?

Hinds County and Jackson don't even exist anymore. It's just a geographical label referring to a literal black hole full of crime, corruption, violence and death.

I am writing in Chowke's sister for sheriff. She is just as qualified.

Not that I fully understand all of the nuances to running the Raymond DC, but wouldn't it make more sense to pay other jails to house the worst offenders and use the penal farm for the lite weights? Then regroup to come up with a real long term solution? All the while, the deputies that the department does have can be used for LEO work.

All of this is predicated upon the BOS and new sheriff actually using their brains, so it probably will just be business as usual...

I have been amazed that an investigation concerning the bid process & construction of the jail under the leadership of then supervisor Bennie Thompson was never conducted. Out of state contracts were awarded and then the contractors/architects sublet to local firms to complete the work. I am told that currently county and city elected officials brazenly demand kickbacks on contracts awarded.

I'm writing Leon Seals name in... That Tyree guy seems to be on steroids or something and sheriff Crisler seems sleep.

So let me guess, the jail was in perfect condition when Vance was in office and they’ve magically become bad overnight since Crisler was appointed. Spare me…..

So let me guess the jail was in perfect condition when Victor Mason was in office but became bad overnight after Vance was appointed.

It's being rigged as we speak. Crisler wins. Sorry folks.

The warden Kathrin Bryan at RDC has done nothing but claim to "not know" or point fingers for her failures. All while doing illegal things like telling contractors to come in and do work "and she will handle it" before the county even has a quote or PO ready. Shad White could have a field day with that. Employees resigning as sky rocketed under her and her "leadership" but that of course never her fault.

Guess runnin RDC isn't like runnin the small 100 bed jails she has before.

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.
