 A Northeast Jackson nuisance shut down two weeks ago. 

The store has been a magnet for vagrants and suffered more than its fair share of robberies.   Hopefully it will soon become a pile of rubble to be carried away but someone will probably reopen the store.

Isn’t the real problem with vagrancy in that area due to the abandoned Triad Office building on the other side of the interstate? It’s become the local vagrant housing. Even WLBT has reported on that building!

Countless crimes have occured there-

Access and egress are awkward here.

I'm guessing the Northeast corner of Briarwood and I-55. Risked my life there maybe twice in the last 20 years when running out of smokes. 40+ years ago it was a pretty nice Amoco station where we filled up with the high test 93 octane stuff for our foreign sports cars. Nowadays just another piece of land that's gonna get free'd up by any means necessary, right?

But convenient enough to rob repeatedly.

Awkward access indeed.

Pouring rain in rush hour a few years ago, and some kid going eastbound decided he needed to stop there just as I was passing westbound.

The westbound left lane of traffic decides to pause and let kid thru without telling me in the right lane so kid slammed into my drivers side door.

I was more worried about getting mugged (while waiting over an hour for JPD) than I was about the wreck.

Cursed area. Thousands of lives taken there, next door.

I wouldn't stop there for anything.

One business a day, the Chowke way. 500+ abandoned homes; abandoned hotels/motels everywhere; Detroit v2.0.

"Access and egress are awkward here."

Not if you're on foot or skateboard. Or taking a 'Magic Carpet Ride'.

Tear it down

Years ago, I was running low on gas and headed back to Madison. Thought I could make it and ran out of gas on the exit to this fine establishment.

Walked up there to get a gas can. Paid $40 for a 1 gallon gas can. I thought about refusing and the well-mannered attendant threatened me.

You paid the stupid tax.

They need to tear down the motel behind it too.

You obviously haven’t been to Detroit in 9 years. It’s rebuilt and doing well. This isn’t a racist comment due to there white mayor. But he’s done well. Also owners of little Caesar’s mgm and redwings all have done a huge part. Not to mention nba team owner Dan Gilbert pumping in a billion dollars in private redevelopment.

@7:16 AM - you obviously don't have a clue of what "v2.0" means.

4:55 -- I see your reference to the old abortion clinic next door....I'm from this area and live in this area. Its not safe, and I sadly plan on moving, but I don't think its because of the location of an abortion clinic once upon a time. Now, it could be the 3 hotels right there where JPD allows the continued drug and P^$$@ sales, and now the Triad building, but what do I know...

PS this was the beer store for all underage/HS kids in the area during the late 90s early 2000s...those owners were great! ha

Nearly every time someone shows up here to share the good news about Detroit they fail to provide even a passing mention that all the new found goodness BEGAN with Detroit's bankruptcy.

Jackson IS Detroit v2.0 as the city is making every damn mistake Detroit made before the BK.

fed up in Jackson said...

Unfortunately, since the city of Jackson’s idea of economic development is the building of gas stations, we will have a new modern version to take its place soon enough

Let me get this right. A building is causing people to commit crimes. I thought guns were the only thing that did that. If they tear down the building do you think people are going to quit committing crimes?

How many buildings has to be demolished before the people in Jackson will stop killing each other? Maybe we can even tear down the prisons as well and the streets will become safe enough to walk down.

I just can't understand why people are continually looking for something to blame for crime so they do not have to blame the criminals.

Ben Dover Taxpayers said...

What we have here is the taxpayers are going to pay for the demolition that the property owner is responsible for doing. Then the (new) owner can build anew without the demo expenses, thanks to the few taxpayers remaining in Jackistan.

Ahhhh... passed there today and it sure looked open to me...?

No, 9:04 - they still have some lighted signage going, but the store is closed, and has been for awhile.

10:24 Oh, I get it... "lights on but nobody's home"... just like Jackson leadership.

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.
