Who's going to get this stash first to redistribute amongst the trailer Republicans of Stankin' Rankin? The Banditos or the Booze Travelers?

Pearl PD Officer made a bust near Pelahatchie?

No mention of the cash haul. Smart.

You never mention 'cash confiscated'. If you were to do that, it would have to be accounted for and possibly released.

Note to Hispanics. The police, dep. sheriffs, and other law enforcement agents will stop you for some reason and suspect and search for drugs if you look hispanic and have Texas plates.. Drive through Mississippi anywhere but over the Vicksburg bridge if you have drugs. By the way the technical term is called "profiling".

@3:38 there is an interdiction task force made up of officers from several law enforcement agencies that work Rankin county

@ 3:38 Most all municipalities share I-20 responsibilities through the Rankin corridor. Its part of the ICE "agreement" or whatever it is that patrols the interstate through here.

@4:23 Is it called profiling if its pretty much the truth? Just about every drug bust on I-10 is a Hispanic with Texas plates. I mean its so common place it happens once a week at minimum. There are other things you can pick up on, like DOT & MC numbers not matching trucks, tags not matching vehicle registration, tags being in the computer system scanning tag...but I wont elaborate and mess up your little "Mississippi is racist" post.

This is 3:38, I get the 'legalities' of it...I just think it's absurd. If you ever want a chuckle, look at the map of Morton. They annexed a road so they could rob folks driving 20. It's a shame they can't confiscate property for murder, rape, or theft; we'd have a 100% solved rate in the metro. Keep applauding the policing for profit.

texas is a 2 tag state. one tag on the front of the vehicle and one on the rear. they sit out in the median looking at eastbound traffic with binoculars waiting for a texas tag. and yes, it's is purely profiling.

the dope travels west to east and the money travels east to west.

But to what end?

As you can see, it's not stopping the flow of cocaine. All it's doing is helping to fill our jails. Not one person who actually brings drugs into the USA is ever arrested. Not one person in charge is ever arrested. Just an endless stream of little fish. Yet the River Hills Club set has no problem getting what they need, whenever they want it.

What a friggin waste of time and cop energy.

You gotta have the balls of Buford Pusser to walk up inside a Winnebago on suspicion.

A lot of these busts are from tips down the line.

Profiling does happen but there is more to this.

What's silly is to stop the drugs before their destination. Nothing gained.

@3:38 not only is Officer Johnson a Pearl Police officer, but he's an integral part of the Narcotics Task Force that operates along the I-20 corridor as well as other locations where drugs are being bought, sold or trafficked.

What a waste of time. Maybe someone can give the Rankin County Task Force some tips on the difference between its and it's.

The trafficking business is so busy and successful that the suppliers don't bother to warn the thousands of Hispanic "mules" about Rankin County Mississippi. Any Hispanic with Texas/Arizona plates is subject to being stopped and searched since there is no effective anti-profiling movement in Rankin. The suppliers and distributers get so much dope through the state they hardly notice a few million dollars worth and who cares about the mules. The suppliers are still rich and happy and Rankin County gets their cut. Everybody's happy.

Pitt - the intent is not to stop the flow. The local law types are happy to keep the drugs, and more importantly, the cash, flowing. It's a profit center. Imagine the difference a multi-agency task force directed at cleaning up violent crime in Jackson could make, but there's no profit to be made in that.

Makes you wonder why they're not getting stopped in Louisiana. sent

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
