Slumlords Fight Back

 The owners of two dilapidated hotels are fighting the city of Jackson's efforts to shut down their hotels. 

Jackson Municipal Court Judge Jeff Reynolds closed the Regency on Greymount Tuesday.  The Court said mold is pervasive throughout the hotel.  The roof is in a state of disrepair and in danger of collapsing.  The plumbing needs major repairs as well.  The hotel has tenants even as it deteriorates.  

Baka, LLC owns the Regency.  Ketan Patel is the managing member of the company although Ping claimed in court she was the owner.  Judge Reynolds ruled manager Zhu Juan Ping was in contempt of court and sentenced him to serve thirty days in jail. No one appeared in court for the Regency. The Court gave the hotel 72 hours to close and eject the tenants. 

However, Ping got a reprieve as she was never arraigned on the charges. Judge Reynolds set aside the order and arraigned her yesterday.  Trial is set for September 29 at 3 PM. 

The Oyo hotel on I-55 frontage road by Northside Drive suffered the same fate.  The site has been the scene of shootings and is a known drug haven. Judge Reynolds found the owner, Bharat Parchal to be in contempt of court.  Judge Clay ordered Parchal to bring the hotel up to code a month ago.  The Court said the hotel was missing fire extinguishers, the elevator had not worked for years, six rooms were not secure, and there was excessive debris in rooms.  The building did not meet the electrical code and is a major fire hazard.  

Judge Reynold sentenced Parchal to serve thirty days in jail for the contempt and ordered the removal of all tenants within 72 hours.  The defendant appealed the case to County Court yesterday.

Chowke's dope boys need venues to ply their wares, right?

Most of the Dope Deals go down in the parking lots of Kroger and Walmart in Madison!

An appeal of a Jackson Municipal care? Good luck hearing that one in the next 2 years.

If that's true (and I don't think anyone reading JJ believes that except ol' Joke's cheerleaders) then they're dumber than I thought.

1:07, proof? Your participation? Photos of others?
Kroger and Walmart corporate legal teams would not appreciate your accusations.

Attn 1:07 I think you are getting the Kroger on I55 north where the young child was kidnapped and murdered confused with the two (incidentally two really fine stores) in the city of Madison.’

It’s safer in Madison, the dealers follow the money and nobody especially the dealer wants to get robbed !

Two mules fighting over a fuckin turnip

Why does anybody, White, black, brown or yellow give a fuck what happens at either of these shitholes? Dope should be legal and so should paying $30 to shack up in a slum

Just visit the outer parking spaces at the Walmart in Madison.

Lots of activity.

Last only a minute or two and then both cars leave.

Excuse me, but aren't some of you showing your ignorance about race? And, in doing so, can no longer deny being a racist.
These slum lords are not African American and would in all likelihood feel as you do... superior to any African American and to most Caucasians.
Indeed, they would not want their children marrying anyone of any race not theirs.

Indeed, they might actually live in Madison or Rankin counties and their children have attended private school.

And, by the way, we have white slum lords who live in Madison.
And quite a few out of State you will find out when they abandon your new cheaply built faux commercial buildings in the future.

Note: Unintended consequences. Residents forced out, employees fired, and then the homeless/vagrants will move in along with the rats.

9:22- What the hell are you ranting about? Nobody mentioned 'African American' or marriage outside of one's race. Get your meds changed.

10:16 I don't think anyone got "forced out" I think you have a lot of people that could not afford to leave, did, and rented their properties to anyone so they could make some money and now everyone suffers.

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.
