 The Mississippi Department of Public Safety issued the following statement. 

Today, Commissioner Sean Tindell announced James Ivory III as the Lieutenant Colonel of the Mississippi Highway Patrol (MHP). Effective March 1st, 2024, Ivory will take on the role of Director of the uniform division.

“I congratulate Captain Ivory on his promotion to Lieutenant Colonel of the Mississippi Highway Patrol,” said Governor Tate Reeves. “Captain Ivory has worn the badge for nearly a quarter of a century and has distinguished himself in multiple roles with DPS. His wealth of experience and expertise makes him a perfect fit for this new role, and I know he will continue to honorably protect and serve the people of our great state.”

Captain James Ivory has served with the Mississippi Department of Public Safety for 24 years in a variety of roles. Most recently, he has served as the Captain at Troop K (Biloxi), the second- largest district in the state, since September 2020. Prior to that, he was Captain at Troop H (Meridian), a Special Agent with the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, a Deputy with Harrison County Sheriff’s Department, and a Second-Class Petty Officer in the United States Navy.

"Congratulations to James Ivory on his promotion to Lieutenant Colonel of the Mississippi Highway Patrol,” said Commissioner Sean Tindell. “With over 20 years of law enforcement experience, plus service in the United States Navy, I have full confidence in his ability to support Colonel Charles Haynes in leading and advancing the men and women of the Mississippi Highway Patrol. I look forward to witnessing the continued growth of MHP."

Throughout Ivory's career, he has completed many hours of training in multiple courses, including, FBI crisis negotiations, conflict resolution, intentional leadership, officer-involved shootings, and federal motor carrier safety inspector. His wealth of experience and leadership background have built a notable career within the Mississippi Department of Public Safety and

Mississippi Highway Patrol.

DEI has been successful in the agency. If I'm not mistaken, this puts black officers in the top two positions under the Commissioner.

All of the citizens of the state look forward to improved and increased discipline among the troops, including termination where warranted.

I think they should have given this job to E31.

The more things change, the more things stay the same. Wonder if E-31 will ever get terminated and what about that FINE UPSTANDING(yeah-right) LadyTrooper that passed around a video of her and her girlfriend/friend/non-consensual drunk participant doing the wildthang. Yeah, a state agency at its finest. and the way they fill out their shirts with their steroid enhanced biceps, yep an agency that is to be look up to, not.

Maybe he will take Trooper James Young off the road and put him behind a desk.

More and more seems to me there is a growing set of Americans spending their entire working lives working this and that government agency, never producing anything of value.

As long as MHP continues to remain silent on the blatant violation of constitutional rights that was perpetrated by trooper E31, they have no credibility. This is just another state government agency that has run amok. Too many citizens wake up everyday and put in a hard days work, pay their taxes, etc. to have some 2 bit tyrants run rough shod over our freedoms. All of the leadership should be fired and have to reapply after undergoing intensive constitutional training, they should be held to a higher standard. MHP will continue to be a stain on our state. We deserve better folks.

There should be a limit to how much money a government employee extracts from the citizens before they have to get a real job and start adding to the economy. We have far too many lifer parasites running around the state.

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.
