Mayhem & Destruction in Brandon (Updated)

 The Brandon Police Department issued the following statement. 

Update (12:15 PM): The Pearl Police Department issued the following statement. 

Charles Lee Murphy, 33 from Gilbert, Louisiana is currently at UMMC under observation for a possible concussion after being evaluated by the Pearl Fire Dept. during the booking process. He will be taken back into custody and have an initial appearance in Pearl Municipal Court when UMMC police notify that he is released.


Murphy is currently charged with felony fleeing, suspended license, no insurance, and possession of meth. The investigation continues and additional charges are possible. Murphy is also facing charges from Brandon PD.


Summary of events:


Flowood tried to make a traffic stop on him Monday night but he fled down the east metro parkway to Airlane towards Pearl. Flowood terminated their pursuit and our officer saw his truck when he came to Old Brandon Rd and Airlane/Metroplex Blvd.  


Pearl PD pursued him all over the east side of town, Metroplex, service drive. Down Hwy 80  to Crossgates where Brandon PD took the lead. Murphy got back onto the East Metro Parkway that is under construction, down to Eldorado Rd.to Cross Park Dr.  Murphy got back on Hwy 80 east  towards Brandon Murphy hit at least one vehicle in the intersection of 80 and Crossgates and continued east.  Brandon PD pitted him near the Trustcare on Hwy where he lost control and flipped the truck. He got out and the truck caught fire. He was taken in to custody and thankfully nobody in the public or officers were injured through the entire ordeal.

Just couldn't resist.

Dumbass. You can tell he only has the mentality of a 5th grader, and it's instilled in his mind to smile for the class picture.

Watch the video folks. That’s how quick you could be gone. Watch the vehicle to the right of the videographer

There should have been some buckshot and 5.56 rounds put in his face long before this happened.

Law enforcement should have complete immunity during these pursuits and implement the use of deadly force without hesitation to stop these criminals.

No wonder so many people are leaving Brandon and moving to Jackson!

@10:38 Totally Agree

10:38, can we assume you are moving to another country, say Russia where folks regularly fall out of buildings? Undoubtedly the Rankin County “no blessings here” Justice System will handle the fella appropriately. Advocating complete immunity and deadly force without due process though is un-American. The Founding Fathers, however imperfect they may have been, would be appalled.

Thanks KF for the bonus Jame Bond clip form the under appreciated Diamonds are Forever!

Isn't that the PD that just had a bunch of those 'push bumpers' installed for just this purpose?

No way in hell this should happen. Only by the grace of God some innocent was not killed. I'm sorry, I have complete respect for LEO's, but when it comes to this cowboy shit, it's got to stop.

BTW, I live in Brandon and seen these cops use 80 as a racetrack too many times.

when you run from the police, and they have to chase you, i am completely ok with the police having a few minutes to absolutely beat your ass.

running from the police puts civilians, and innocents that have absolutely nothing to do with the myriad number of bad decisions you made in your life that lead you to getting chased.

there is no reason, whatsoever, to run from the police unless you are a criminal. i have zero patience, sympathy, empathy, care or concern with what happens to a criminal. criminals bring upon themselves all the bad shit that happens to them by making an untold number of bad decisions. endangering the public because of those bad decisions deserves an extra ass beating by the police once caught.

Brandon is doomed. I'm moving to W. Jackson.

@11:20. None of us want this to happen, well until something happens to you and/or yours.

It looks like he was driving a GM. Why not just call GM and ask them to remotely disable that shit-heap? If GM can remotely unlock the doors for LEOs, then they should be able to stop a hot pursuit as well.

Your Wal-Mart law degree isn't working.

The application of deadly force by police is not contingent upon due process.

Anonymous said...

Maybe he got the possible concussion when he flipped his truck? Not that he didn't deserve a beating, but why just assume that the police beat his ass? I don't have a problem if they did, but why rush to judgement without knowing the facts?

Awwww 11:12, it’s not? Actually it is, though depending on certain circumstances as defined by the U.S. Supreme Court deadly force in exigent situations permitted. Due process still applies but is trumped (you like that one?). If dues process didn’t apply, then how is law enforcement liable for any injury ever? The same analysis for skipping a warrant under exigent circumstances.

The fleeing fool is entitled to something other than “the use of deadly force without hesitation” and “immunity.” Neither the Constitution nor the U S Supreme Court have taken such a position. More importantly, the law-abiding public is entitled to something more than becoming collateral damage. Kudos to RCSO for arresting this POS in the manner they did.

And my law degree was from Costco, not Wal-Mart. You must have gotten your law degree from an in-state retailer.

@11:12 When someone is in the act of committing a crime that endangers the lives of the innocent they should be stopped by whatever means. If this same guys was standing in a shopping mall firing a gun at will wouldn't you want the cops to take him out. He's driving a 6000 lb vehicle at a high rate of speed. I don't see the difference.

While I'm extremely glad no one got killed and now that it settled down in my sleepy little town, let's review good videophone usage and start with the phrase,"...that's how quick you could..." and insert [flip the phone over to a landscape view] if someone were a videographer.

C'mon people, start practicing correct video camera etiquette, practice.

Maybe tomorrow we can start working on turn signals, you know, like what they are, where located, and the best practices for using them as well.

@1:46 Hey genius orator, I don't see where RCSO was involved in this matter. Where did you get that law degree again?

Anonymous said...

5:24, guess you are the genius for making a distinction without a difference. Lol.

Anonymous said...

I'm with 2:52. Shoot these people, rather than endanger innocent drivers.

Its a hard world now, and if you flee you should be the dead person. Not drivers that are obeying the laws.

Bet the number of folks that want to go all Dukes of Hazard drops after a few get shot, too.

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.
