Rather than share sparse oxygen with all those sweating bodies, I'd rather just read JJ's hot take on the event after the fact.

Hope Aaron Banks makes a meaningful contribution AFTER Lil Choke spins his worthless, twisted yarns of blame and excrement.

Will the blue ribbon commission be meeting there also?

If you are looking to steal a F150 tomorrow, be at the Fairgrounds between 11 and 2.

What a colossal waste of time! My prediction for recommendations; additional judges, prosecutors, public defenders, jail space, etc. Also, more mentoring programs, basketball courts, summer job programs etc. same old solutions that have never worked in the past.
Until our so called leaders recognize the problems are cultural and generational nothing will change. Government assistance programs which have rewarded fatherless homes, with undereducated teenage mothers having multiple children in order to receive benefits are now decades old and society is dealing with the results. Until the culture is changed no meaningful changes can be made. We have to accept that change will come slow. It has taken generations to get here.
Until then our leaders can have their crime summits and strategy meetings, meet with religious leaders,etc, to pretend that they are doing something in order to get elected.

Put me down for the breakout session on welfare fraud crimes (Brett Favre, Nancy New, Feel), stealing from farmers (Coleman family), or stealing timber (Madison).

They could make some money if they rented booth space in the vendor's area to the funeral homes and gun dealers. If it worked out wel, they could rename it "The Origional Crime Summit" and run it every month and put up little signs around town, advertising the event.

Will Brett Lorenzo Favre speak at this event? He did not mention it during his Tucker Carlson interview tonight on FOX. Probably get paid anyway.

Did they tell people in advance what Bible Verses the sermon will focus on?

I agree wholeheartedly with 5:59 p.m. This is purely a cultural issue, so you can rest assured, nothing substantive will come from this gathering. There's not a person who will attend that will be willing to address the ACTUAL source of the problem(s), because that would require being truthful, and truthfulness brings claims of racism.....which, of course, has heretofore been quite successful at killing discussion.

Quite a neat little circle where, ultimately, things just remain the same.....but the benefits of virtue signaling remain.

11am to 1pm........hummmmmmm...sounds like an extended ,long lunch break for government employees .

5:59 said it all.

And no elected official will ever have the balls to say it so succinctly, because they want to keep their job and you dont get reelected if you stop paying for all the unwanted babies that are hell bent on becoming criminals.

An unbreakable cycle and I see no way out.

Thanks LBJ!

The uneducated masses continue to vote for these charlatans who promise them more free money, while making sure they never climb out of poverty.

They are too dumb to see that they are mere pawns.

Hell, we all are I suppose.

Heard on the news last night that there is no need for the Crime Summit anymore. The city of Jackson has come up with a solution for the high crime. They are going to let the thugs play basketball. Crime problem solved.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
