I'm not trying to start stuff, but I don't need an explanation of where stuff is or how stuff works. I already know that. I have over 90% of one half of my family scattered in MS. I know all the counties, and what's going on there. Where are you getting you're statistics? Have you lived there? Have you visited? Or are you going whatever you read about the Sheriff's posting? I'm just curious. Everyone knows Hinds County (Jackson) has the highest crime rate in the state, and Madison County is one of the most aesthetically appealing counties in the state. Maybe I should've put "as of late" at the end of my previous post. I'm talking about very high crime rate as of late (recent news). If you're talking about all-time crime rate, yes it's low. But if you've been keeping up with recent new's it's been very high, as MOST of the crimes go unreported. (Outskirts of US-49 leading to Jackson which is still Rankin County=very high crime rates)
However, in the interest of full disclosure...and for the record...during the time period when I didn't live here...yes, I visited.

Yes, we can can respectfully disagree.
I have lived there many years on two separate occasions and as a civilian who doesn't work with LEOs I know much crime isn't report, but there is more that goes on behind the scene more than you or the LEOs know. Crime is Crime. Whether it's stealing a pack of gum at a convenience store, or murdering someone in cold blood.
Just like that story in MS last year about a judge having to desegregate some schools
Segregation in Mississippi Public Schools in 2010? - ABC News
That is old news, and it took how long for the public to pick it up? People knew about it for years but somehow no one came out and said anything about it until how many years later? My point is, us "common people" who don't work with or around LEOs know more about what's going on in our community than LEOs. And most of the crimes go unreported. But I do see where you're coming from.
Respecfully, I have no idea what the link you posted has to do with the crime rate in Rankin County. I cannot see any connection at all.

I don't drive in from somewhere else either. I live in Mississippi (for now), but I'm a Florida resident. So I'm not an outsider.

i did not see the previous thread. Please delete this one.
These asshats are coming here to protest a funeral this weekend.
As much as I would love to do more than just block their view, remember that the protest is a cover for this groups real job which is extortion. The "minister's" wife is a lawyer, what they do is provoke a confrontation and then sue the city for failure to protect them They also sue individuals. They then get a settlement to stop the suit and avoid costs of defense. This finances their operation.
The bottom line-as hard as it is, leave them be. The Patriot Guard Riders will make sure the family is shielded.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
I wish these goofballs were from a different state. They give Ks a bad name. The folks in Rankin County have their stuff together.

Brandon, Mississippi will go down in history as the town where the Westboro Baptist Church met its match.
The lunatics showed up to protest at the funeral of local hero Staff Sgt Jason Rogers who was killed in Afghanistan, but left town without making a peep. They may have made a few moans and groans, but no peeps.
Westboro Baptist is really more of an asylum than a church
The Hayride has the righteous report:
A couple of days before, one of them (Westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed. Police were called and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to remember anything about what had happened.
Rankin County handled this thing perfectly. There were many things that were put into place that most will never know about and at great expense to the county.
Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking lot. It seems that certain Rankin county pickup trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was over. Police were called but their wrecker service was running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they could tow the trucks so the Kansas plated cars could get out.
A few made it to the funeral but were ushered away to be questioned about a crime they might have possibly been involved in. Turns out, after a few hours of questioning, that they were not involved and they were allowed to go on about their business.
No lawyers. No judges. No counter protests. Just a good old fashioned ass kicking.
That’s exactly what the Westboro lunatics have been asking for, so it’s only fair that the good folks in Rankin County gave it to them.
Next time, put it on pay per view and make a fortune for the widows and children of the military heroes. We know we’d pay to see it
Ha! That makes my day.
Seems there was a movie, cannot recall the name, where a town bully got his finally in much the same way; someone shot him dead instead of allowing him to bully everyone some more, and the sheriff couldn't find anyone that saw who done it, so that was that.
Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.
I hate that I share the name baptist with those jokers. What bible are these people reading? Sounds like they got what was coming.
There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.
Every dog has his day. Hope this is their last. What's needed is more Sonny Barger tactics with these idiots.
