 In case you were wondering why Xfinity suffered a major outage a few days ago, the company issued the following statement: 

We’re aware you experienced an interruption to your Xfinity services on November 25, when some of our fiber-optic cables in your area were severely damaged in multiple locations due to vandalism. Our Xfinity crews worked quickly to identify and complete the complex repairs along the line.

We know time without service can be frustrating and appreciate your patience during these outages. Due to the location and severity of the damage, repairs took longer than we anticipated, and we apologize for the length of the outage.

Why we can't have nice things, reason #_____.

It happened on the evening of the college football rivalry weekend and more specifically during halftime of the iron bowl (Alabama vs. Auburn)!

Now, I should think we are at least owed mug shots of these "vandals" behind these "acts of vandalism" once they are caught and a full complete investigation to insure the culprits aren't something more detrimental to society, such as Hallmark Movie Mercenaries.

Is there an opening for mercenaries against Hallmark broadcasters? Hallmark soap actors? Hallmark piano music? Hallmark camera lens greasers? What a target rich environment.

They probably thought they were stealing copper.

@5:05. JPS needs to teach the criminal class the difference between fiber optic and copper.

My question is, why? Multiple locations? Sounds very strange to me.

40 years ago, nobody had Internet access at home except for a tiny handful of computer science professors and their students. But try living without an email address today. 150 years ago, nobody had a telephone. Again, try living in modern society without one.

This is an attack on the basic infrastructure of modern life and should be punished as such. You don’t mess around with the US Postal System, and you shouldn’t mess around with the internet infrastructure.

Other than most inmates, who did not have cable TV ten years ago?

A friend in the business tells me that fiber optic lines are often vandalized by would-be thieves who think they contain copper.

they likely thought it was copper, when they saw it was not they went to a new spot to try again. to paraphrase "meth is a helluva drug"

ATT phone / internet outage in NW Clinton area this week. Some folks took approx 50 yards of elevated cable on Tinnin Road.

We all know the underlying cause of this is drugs and theft to purchase drugs. We have always had drugs and theft around, but within the past 30 years crime related to drugs and the type of drugs that are worse than humankind has ever known has changed our society immensely. There is no way to stop this. Every enemy we have is fueling this to promote decay to our society and especially the family unit. Just think what kind of nation this would be if you took illegal substances out of the picture. Don’t leave out alcohol and what bootlegging did to society, although, bootlegging helped fund our Continental Army during the Revolution and one of our favorite past times Stock Car Racing was born out of men who could tune their cars to outrun the law. Alcohol has destroyed many people and families so I want to at least say that, but illegal drugs that are so dangerous as they are today are making zombies out of people who some that I know were functioning contributors of society. Now that pot is legal for medical use that will open up a whole new can of worms because many will obtain that and proceed forth to stronger drugs. Our society is screwed and screwed up very bad. The mental health issue is a byproduct of illegal drugs. Just talk to an addict and you will see. Try to employ one and you will see. Just hold on folks, it’s only going to get worse.

I used to splice cable for the cable company and the phone company.
We have had to replace spans of cable because it was shot with a shotgun.
Thats one way to piss off the neighbors.

@7:57 AM - 100% true! Thanks to Biden for the open border that allows literally tons of fentanyl and other illegal drugs, gangs, and terrorists into the U.S. Also a big FU to the assholes who voted for him.

December 2, 2023 at 10:49 PM and December 4, 2023 at 10:31 AM are you the same person? Or brothers of a different mother?
Your "perception of crime" comment doesn't float as this outage went far beyond Jackson. And then you or your first cousin find a way to blame Biden? Go back into your hole.

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.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
