We have had a white sheriff for a long time. people say, who cares what color? Normally it doesn't/shouldn't matter. But this is Jackson! McMillian has done as good a job as anyone could be expected to do in Jackson... that said, the hinds county voters elected a new sheriff. Tyrone Lewis.

Tyrone has had some issues of his own. He allowed his son to use the JPD training facilities for profit http://kingfish1935.blogspot.com/2007/12/so-did-tyrone-lewis-break-law.html

Tyrone was busted for lying in court http://kingfish1935.blogspot.com/2010/09/fire-tyronne-lews.html

Tyrone's son is pretty funny:


Tyrone was backed by very important people:
"The People‘s Assembly of Ward 2, with the support of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement of Jackson, conducted a candidates‘ forum last Saturday (June 11) open to all candidates for elective office in the 2011 cycle. Despite the open invitation, only Sheriff’s candidate Tyrone Lewis, Jackson’s former interim police chief and retired deputy chief, engaged in the give-and-take of the assembly.

The assembly, a public interest community activity that was a part of Ward 2 Councilman Chokwe Lumumba’s election campaign of 2009, styles itself as “an informed group that does not take well to politics as usual.“ Lewis repeated the assembly‘s longstanding mantra of “Free the Land.”

Here is McMillan's (old sheriff) letter conceding the race:

http://www.clarionledger.com/assets/pdf/D0178015811.PDF

In this election, my opponent’s advisors and supporters, Chokwe Lumuba, Tony Yarber, Constable Jon Lewis, and others chose to campaign on their view that Hinds County now needs a black sheriff – a requirement I obviously could not meet. I have lived my adult life and my professional life dedicated to being colorblind – and my department for 20 years has reflected my commitment.


TL;DR
STAY FAR AWAY FROM JACKSON, MS.

Buried my Aunt and Uncle in Jackson. They seemed to like it there, but that was back about 20 years ago.

I'm downtown.

I have lots of mags and about 10k rounds of ammo. Hopefully I will be ready if any riots decide to break into my home.

Enjoy your new Sheriff, that you picked solely on the color of his skin, regardless of intelligence or moral character. Most importantly, remember this is when things went downhill.

Patrice Lumumba

More like this. There was a college in Soviet Russia named after this gentleman. World reknowned for its hell raising.

And Jackson becomes yet one step closer to being a shithole because yet another incompetent borderline criminal black man is elected because he is black. He should have been fired a long time ago when he was letting his thug son use the JPD training center for profit.

Link for those not from Jackson for the story.
