Aren't there leash laws in Ridgeland... I don't blame the guy. Cats get all over your cars and shit. They suck.

Way worse "animal cruelty" going on at the Jackson Animal Shelter.

Mr. Hardee has changed addresses. He is now residing with MDOC on a parole violation. Took just a few hours to pick him up. Don’t play in Madison County.

Thats a very old looking 54 year old.

People who abuse animals truly deserve a harsh punishment. But I think we all know what animal cruelty is around here. I agree with 1:36 on this one. Dude was probably frustrated with his neighbor's cat crapping in his yard, getting paw prints on his cars, killing his birds, whatever it may be. He dealt with the situation quickly and humanely. This is not some dog fighter or hoarder of animals.

I am an animal advocate...love cats and dogs. I will say that one particular cat(wifes) about 5 years old who is about to go to visit the big sleep by firearm. He's an idiot.....sneaks food from open grills...raw meat from countertops...lunch sammiches in ziplocks. This guy was likely at his wits end with SOMEONE ELSE problems coming into his yard. Seems they met a quick death.

1:36 and 1:50 there is a really special place in hell for you and others of your mentality.
You do not kill domestic animals. PERIOD.

Anonymous said...

2:04 : Ok. So what if these were feral ? You sing a different tune ? What if this lady is feeding 60 of these cats ? Do we know ? Does it matter ?

Anonymous said...

1:57 - You are NOT an animal advocate by anyone’s definition. You and the others speaking out in support of killing domesticated animals need lessons on living in a civilized society.

Anonymous said...

If it's a pet, keep it at home.

I remember when dispatching roaming, stray, feral cats was considered a public service and civic duty, and for good reason. The reason still exists.

Hey 2:04 - so what do you do if the next door dog starts mauling your kid? It's a domestic animal. Do you talk nicely to it, pet it, let it finish? Take your pedestal and go somewhere else. Oh, and don't say that's different now that I pointed it out.

Post at 2:04 can add 1:57 to the list of insanity.
If you mess with wife's cat, you yourself might find yourself in the "big sleep", big talker.

20,000 bond for killing a cat in ridgeland. What's bond for killing a human being in jackson?

Anonymous said...

So the animal lovers jumped off the cliff on this one. 2:42 goes off the deep end and says if you shoot a cat you get the same fate. Poor fella can't even see the crazy in that statement.

I have facilitated a marriage between a cat and a tire: brief ceremony but they were inseparable.

Remember "The Cat Hater's Calendar" of 25+ years back?

Yikes. Not what I expected based on the headline. Keep your cats out of his yard, and you won’t have this problem! Wouldn’t convict him if I were on the jury.

Any idiot who supports leash laws for cats has obviously never met a cat.

Amazed at some of this crazy comments on this page. Boardwalk yards are smaller than small. He shot these cats from a distance. Growing up I played and walked through people yards and so did every other kid, dog and cat. No one got shot over it. This guy has a rap sheet a mile long. Has no job, no car and living off some woman. He is in jail and will stay there for some time over a parole violation. Anyone who shoots dogs and cats and defends such actions are sick.

Anonymous said...

I hope he rots. And, if any of the commenters defending his behaviors were to take the same actions, I would say the same for them.

If memory serves me correctly, Gipson publicly advocated against the “hard work of the Mississippi Legislature during the 2020 session” relied upon by RPD in this case. Just wanted to bring this back up.

Domestic cats kill more than 2.5 BILLION birds each year in the US. Electricity lines, pesticides, window strikes, traffic, and windmills TOGETHER kill only one billion. Sorry, two cats less is not that bad. I think cats roaming streets should be neutered and should wear a bell around the neck. If not, they should be picked up by animal control and should be neutered and “belled”.

Nothing to add but I hate stray cats as well. Sorry that guy got caught.

When I was a youngster my daddy used to feed stray cats that were dumped on our long rural dirt road, to his pigs.

domestic cats kill thousands of federally protected wild songbirds every year and no one seems to give a flip. that's why you don't hear mockingbirds singing at night like they did back in the 70s and 80s.

Reading the comment section, there are more current and future psychopath serial killers than WE thought. If you are an advocate for killing these cats please list you name, address and phone number so that the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit can have you on file. Thank you for your cooperation and enjoy your time in prison. PS: I don’t want to hear any whining when the animals owner beats your ass or shoots you.

Sorry that these cats met this terd. With that said, did they have Covid ?

several years ago there was a guy, i think in texas, that was being brought up on animal cruelty charges for shooting a bag of kittens with a shotgun. he was let go cause the judge determined that although a shotgun may have been a little excessive, there was no suffering on the part of the animal.

Good. The only good cat is a dead cat. But crushed up tylenol mixed with a can of tuna tossed out the window is a much safer option.

It's the owner's fault the damn cats got shot. If he/she/it would have kept them on their property, ol' "puss n boots" would still be breathing.

If they were feral, good riddance.

OMG I saw a raccoon, squirrel, rabbit, cat, dog , my neighbor cut through my yard. I have to shoot. I have to kill that invasive nuisance. Such big bad people. So strong and intimidating. Leaders of our communities. The rocks that keep America’s shores safe from the tidal hoard. Thank you brave men and women for protecting us with your strength and warrior spirit. I sleep better at night knowing you stand watch and ready to defend the rest of us from these dangers. God bless you all.

4:04 wins the troll award. That’s funny

Anonymous said...

As a psychopath myself I can’t blame the guy. The people two houses down from me have a literal cat city in their yard there’s at least 20 cats hanging out or running all around. They’ll get in your garage and scratch things up. get into your garbage, drive the dogs wild, etc. Jackson or Hinds County ain’t got time to deal with them. Some of them need to come up short for roll call.

Did the cats refuse to make sammiches for their owners?

While we are discussing this for Black lawmakers to walk out on CRT discussion shows the heart of how backward our State & Nation has become. Guns & law of enforcement of young people being held accountable is ruining our country NOT CRT as being pushed by media! There are more opportunities today than ever before to succeed such as Student grants, loans, scholarships than ever before. Stop putting children against children as the laws in place already protect from discrimination!

The cats were probably pissing on everything. Cats are awful to be around. And Ridgeland has a major feral cat problem. I’ve lived in Ridgeland for 22 years. Maybe Ridgeland will hire him as animal control to help clean them up.

Years ago we had a crazy cat lady in our rural neighborhood who fed dozens of feral cats every day. She created a public nuisance. The cats reproduced at an alarming rate. Then she moved away, leaving all the unvaccinated and non-neutered/spade feral cats starving and roaming everywhere seeking food. After a month or so, the men in our area decided it was time to kill the damned feral cats. They shot them, quickly and painlessly. It took awhile to eradicate them.

I love cats, own two of them, but DAMN! don't feed feral cats or some homeowner is going to get rid of the problem. And don't suggest humanely trapping them. We tried that, all we ever caught was neighbors' little dogs and one raccoon.

He will get more time for this in Madison County than for murder in Jackistan.

His only crime was doing it in such a way to get caught. There are much more discreet and effective ways to rid the world of useless domestic and feral cats.

Not sure yet, but I promise you it is less than they have spent humanely putting to sleep permentantly, the dog & cats they take to MARL in the last quarter alone

Don't forget to mention Barb Blackmon and Joel 'Orange Tie' Bomgar in your prayers. They fought hard against tougher penalties for animal cruelty.

And what about that legislator who several years back rounded up and gassed a bunch of ducklings (or was it geeslings). Is he still 'law-making' or did Feel appoint him to a judgeship somewhere?

Anonymous said...

to 1;42..............that legislator was mike gunn. he rounded up a bunch of canadian goose goslings out at the reservoir that were eating up his lawn and crapping all over it, and turned out their lights.
that act got the attention of a federal agent with the u s fish and wildlife service.
you see canadian geese are protected under federal law by the migratory bird treaty act of 1917
mr gunn got ticketed by the federal agent and ended up paying a five figure fine in federal magistrate court in jackson.
but there is is a difference here.
canada geese are native wildlife , unlike cats that are nothing but one more invasive species, brought here from europe, with about half of them being feral, out killing songbirds and other native wildlife.

the wacked out ''cat lover'' waterheads on this thread will never understand the distinction between native wildlife and feral animals.
they think they are all the same. well they are not. you didn't know that?
well, now you know.

Yes, I did know that. The whacked out melon-heads who advocate the shooting of neighborhood animals pretend there are distinctions where none exist. And thanks for the red herring.

What you might not know is that the law makes no distinction between native wildlife and feral animals in the neighborhood (who says the cat was feral?) when it comes to protections offered and law enforcement. Whether you or I like that is beside the point. Gunn violated federal law and this man has violated municipal and state law. I'm no cat lover, in fact do not like cats, generally. I'm only commenting about the law, which seems to fly right in one of your ears and out the other.

If you don't like the law, that's your problem. There's a lengthy, but available, process for you to get it changed or neutered.

6:13 : But CRT will take us over the edge. CRT lacks accountability for actual black slave owners and black slave traders. You get that FACT into CRT studies then we can talk.

I am fine with anyone if you apply cat and dog rules equally.

I loathe my neighbors escape artist dog.

Gets in my trash, digs up my flowers, watched him assault a baby rabbit last spring...could be feral for all I know.

I suppose the consensus here is that I should be able to murder him with out consequence.

Sign me up.

Anonymous said...

"Gets in my trash, digs up my flowers..." you should dispatch that animal, not unlike a large rodent or possum.

"murder" is the killing of a human. Murder should never be without consequence. Dispatching a nuisance animal, sure, no consequences.

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.
