Sheriff: Monitor Infected Jail with Covid

Hinds County Sheriff issued the following statement yesterday about the Federal takeover of the Raymond Detention Center. 


Kingfish note: Sheriff Jones accused the monitor of infecting his jail: 

 The RDC was COVID-free for several months until one of the Court-appointed monitors came to the RDC while experiencing COVID symptoms. The Court-appointed monitor roamed around the facility talking with detainees and staff without wearing a mask and then tested positive for COVID later the same day. 

The incident took place during Memorial Day weekend this year.  Such negligence and government arrogance is disappointing.  The jail suffered a severe outbreak last year.  Sheriff Lee Vance reported on July 20, 2021 there was 70 Covid-19 cases in the Raymond Detention Center.  The infected included the top leadership of the Hinds County Sheriff's Office.  Sheriff Vance tragically passed away due to Covid-19 complications two weeks later.  

A shame the monitor doesn't take precauations seriously.  One dead Sheriff is apparently not enough for the feds.

The sheriff has to blame someone and something.

...Or the Monitor contracted Covid at the facility from an untested convict/staff/guard with mild-to-low symptoms. Does Jones test every inmate/staff/guard daily to lend credibility to his boast?

Wouldn't have tested positive that quickly

@9:35am - If the monitor was already exhibiting symptoms during the visit and tested positive the day after, it would not be possible that they caught it at the jail. Get your head out of your ass.

Sheriff with respect! This correspondence has nothing to do with the present! In reality the Feds will take over! Work with them for a smoother transition. Many Hinds County Sheriffs and Board of Supervisors in the past 20 years say they tried to fix the problem. Let the big boys have a try at it! With your expertise and help I’m sure working together we can get this Jail in order.

Sheriff get your staff on board and work together with the Feds.

I know we want our little kingdoms, but lives are at stake! Put on you big big boy pants and quit wasting time writing these letters, you had your chance!

If you really want to help, you and your staff work random shifts in the jail and help your fellow Corrections Deputies. Be hands on!

Remember the phrase “ on the outside looking in” the Feds will get it done!

Hold your head up, it will be alright!

Sheriff, you and the board of supervisors have done a great job trying to fix the jail. (Just pulling your leg) However in order to fix the problem you can’t keep putting sugar water in the baby’s bottle. The Feds will put in whole USDA milk!

Sheriff, you get where I’m coming from!

The Feds took your pacifier! Let them fed that baby.

We are going to get some real results now. Sheriff, we love you! And that’s Real talk.

"The RDC was COVID-free for several months" because the inmates were not being tested. See no evil and pass the buck.

So this CYA drivel carries about as much weight as the mayor “objecting” to the boil water notice. Doesn’t change a damn thing except further piss off a federal judge who had already had enough of the county’s bullshit, incompetence, and ineptitude.

Couldn't possible have come from a thug that was arrested as they do not arrest thugs. I really do not see any reason they need a jail. They do not arrest criminals in Jackson. It is a sanctuary city. Criminals go there to hide out between crimes.

Just "veto" the jail covid. It worked for Chowke, right?

Sheriff, please don't use the gumflapper's playbook. Take responsibility and lead.

So, what he had said was, it don't be like they say it do.

Or in other words, the sheriff objects.

Always somebody else's fault.

This is Mississippi.
Covid isn't real. Right?
It's just a cold. Right?

The current jail is not fixable, not by the Sheriff or a federal monitor. Without tens of millions of dollars going to repairs and raising salaries of detention staff, nothing will change. Sure the judge can order the county to pay up, but they don't have the money. The county could raise property taxes, but that money takes time to be collected.
The judge also should force the Hinds County court system to work at hyper speed to relieve the backlog of cases which is a huge factor contributing not only to the disfunction at the detention center but also the problem of crime in Jackson.
Jackson/Hinds County have many issues to deal with that none of the current elected leaders have the ability to solve.

This thing called Hinds County-

The sheriff has stated that it takes a village to raise a child, (which is not true) but objects to a government running his jail. All democrats are the same, it's always someone else's fault, they cannot accept blame for their own failures. Nothing new here, same ole blame game, too bad the federal judge in the case is black, otherwise they could play the well worn race card.

How in the Hell can Tyree Jones pinpoint the source of a health related "outbreak" of any kind ?

Seems he didn't tell us about his infectious disease qualifications during his campaign.

@ Pitt Panther

Yes, Covid is literally a cold, like the hundreds you have had over your 70 years. Literally JUST a cold that hospitals treated with a deadly drug known for shutting down kidney function.

Get the fuck over it.

The government you cowards worship killed a million people in the US alone due to the guidelines offered by psychopaths who want us dead because we are “useless eaters.”

How many people died at home of Covid? None. How many were dropping dead in the streets like those propaganda videos from china? None. And this was all done to get mRNA technology through the FDA without the usual time and money required. The ring leaders are on camera with the Miliken Institute admitting to it. Video fucking evidence of motive.

You are a gullible idiot.

With the fraudulent PCR test, the "virus" can be made to appear and disappear as needed. The lab-created spike protein causes the harm. It doesnt take a PhD or MD to figure out that reprogramming a person at the cellular level to internally produce the spike-protein, transforming the "building blocks of life" into the "building blocks of death, and making the recipient into a bio-weapon factory, just might not be such a great idea. Combine that with the intentional disabling of the innate "front-line" immune system so it doesnt recognize the synthetic mRNA as "foreign" and destroy it and what do you have? A recipe for disaster. Death and disaster. FYI, Bill Gates, the vaccine king of earth was a convicted criminal monopolist and bloodline intergenerational eugenicist before he re-branded himself as a philanthropist. I suppose whether or not the vaccines are effective depends on one's perspective.

Alex Jones at 3:22 and 4:45 - Aren’t you supposed to be in a courtroom in Texas right now?

Since the toll is slowly but surely coming due, as high school athletes, European soccer players in the prime of their conditioning, college kids, young actors and comedians drop dead by the dozens, I want you to come back here in 6 months and:

1: Say “you were right and I should have listened”
2: Apologize for calling everyone you disagree with “Alex Jones” (though the Alex Jones was right tip-jar is filling up quick)
3: Kiss my ass publicly and invite anyone you want to watch

Fuck you.

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.
