After 3-4 nights in the county jail he won't be so tough, but he will learn how to squeel like a pig while wearing his jail issued knee pads.

Not a hate crime and won’t ever be investigated as a hate crime.
It had nothing to do with the victims race or where he was.
Unlike if the situation were reversed, it would be a hate crime and the FBI would already be involved.

This tragic incident did not happen inside the city limits of Raymond.

But glad an arrest was made though. Seems like good police work on the part of HCSO.

What are CID investigators? Thank you.

Anyone heard of a motive? The teenagers now days seem to be case-hardened in the wrong way. The killers are getting younger, and younger.

12:01, what about this makes you think it’s a hate crime?

Because the general election is over, the sheriff won't be holding any pressers. Right Tyree?

Now it’s in Jody Owen’s court, expect nothing to happen, he’ll drop it in a year.

CID = Criminal Investigation Department/Division

7:30 am on a Monday morning is mighty early for teens to be involved in a confrontation that result in a death. Unless he was shot earlier and found later!

Good job investigators! Just make sure you have the right person. These cowards don’t travel alone! They can’t think for themselves and listen to some fool to tell them to shoot!

Then they look real stupid!!! Dummy!

Prayers to both families for your loss.

"12:01, what about this makes you think it’s a hate crime?"

He didn't say or suggest it was a hate crime. He suggested that if the races were reversed, it WOULD automatically be considered a hate crime, and the FBI would descend right away.

He didn't mention, that if the races were reversed, Sharpton, Jackson and the NAACP along with Crump and three other black lawyers would be circling like buzzards, but that's reality as well.

Agree with 3:22.
Seems there is always "evidence" to support hate crime when the races are reversed. I'm not implying this case was, just pointing out the absurdity, over use and misapplication when the races are reversed.

The real crime, if you ask me, is THAT HOUSE! Doghouse Gable Ends are bad-enough, when they're regular-sized. But to exaggerate them? the giant zipper flies on last year's women's pants? (worn beltless, no less, so that the effect was even more clownish: I bought no pants, last year...)

And why even have gables, when there are no windows or vents in them? More surface area for the stuck-on rocks? I know we're talkin' South Jackson, here, but really! I know that if you go to Hinds, and major in Drafting, you become an AIBD-certified "professional". (as I remember it, the second thing they teach new members in Chi Omega and the Junior League, is to NOT hire people like that) But truly, the Hinds Crowd should try less to earn the 'American Institute of Bad Designers' moniker.

And speaking of Doghouse Gable Ends, what's with the Madison Chipotle? It looks like a 1960s FHA-minimum-standards Colonial-style spec house (complete with doghouse gables), repurposed as an eatery. I know that Mildred's (specializing in Fried Chicken, like most eateries in Madison), in 'Mildred Pierce', was a repurposed 1940s Colonial Saltbox. But that was the movies, and Mildred's, once remodeled, shared nothing with the original, except white paint (and had the entire Set Department at Warner Brothers, to make it look not-totally-ridiculous).

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.
