Halloween... We Should All be Scared!

Anonymous said...

This happened in Greenwood Walmart: Sunday afternoon I thought I would check out the Halloween outfits for the grand kids. I was deciding between two shirts when two black boys came beside me. One stayed behind and the other walked past talking about not knowing what size shoes his baby wore and having to call and find out. When he came back by, he grabbed my wallet from the crook of my arm and took off running. I took off after them hollering to the top of my lungs. I knew they were probably headed to the exit, but I did lose them when I got to the front entrance.

I was on the pay phone outside talking to the police when the one who actually took my wallet came out looking for his car. I told the dispatcher 'He just came out, and I going after him!'someone heard me hollering again in the parking lot and spotted the boy getting into a car. He stood by the car until I got there. There were 3 boys, the boy's mother and some other girl in the car. Of course, they denied taking the wallet, but I knew it was the one in the orange shirt. That same boy threatened to shoot the person if he didn't move. They all got out of the car and by then Walmart's management was there. They told them to just stay put because the police were on their way.

They began to walk back to the store, and we heard one of them say 'It's gone, just get in the car.' They jumped back into the car and sped off about the time the police came up.In the meantime, another associate found my wallet among some clothes. The little over $40 I had in cash was all that was missing.

When the police brought the carload of thugs back, the mother kept wanting to just give me the missing money and let her baby go, that he was sorry. I told her to forget it.

At the police station I found out he is a 15 year old Indianola resident, father of one, and an alternative school student. Sounds like he's on the road to being a model citizen.

He will have to face Kevin Adams, the new Youth Court Judge who I understand doesn't play.

They will slap him on the hand and send him on his way. Let us know what happens to him. Criminal parents should be first arrested!

Him?? How about Mom and the others involved? Sounds like the pack was traveling together on their crime spree and Mom was driving the get-a-way car. I call that aiding, abetting and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, as well as accessory! She most of all should have been arrested!With the cops giving her chase, seems like that alone should have gotten her some time in the jail!!!So where did this ball get dropped? The police or the laws? Either way, sounds like the kid and others may have to wait to do a bigger job, get caught and learn the hard lesson that crime does not pay....till does.

Oh, but crime does pay! It pays big in the Mississippi Delta, because we allow "youth offenders" to go free. Criminals have wised up as to how to avoid jail... just get some 15 year old to do the actual crime because if they get caught, we rationalize that "they" are only "children"! They are back on the streets the next week pulling the same scams and stealing from all of our "remaining" merchants.

Ask our Chamber why retail merchants leave Greenville. Most will tell you because of theft... employee theft to be exact. Sears has spent millions of dollars in store surveillance equipment and Greenville continues to be among the highest ranking stores for employee theft. Some are so bold that they are stealing appliances right off the delivery trucks, so they never make it to the store.

How do they get away with this you ask? Because "they" are in charge! They are members of the "entitlement club" which is a pseudonym for the Delta Mafia. As long as you don't blow the whistle on club members, you are allowed to share in the bounty.

Example: What happened to the missing $7 million dollars from the County Tax Collector's office? Anyone been prosecuted or answered for the missing funds? No, because they are club members and have protection from prosecution... as "silent" members in good standing.

The crime in Greenville is completely out of control. Cops are being arrested for domestic violence and DUI, violent crime is on the increase and our local "government" has decided to go "part-time". Wow, it just makes my head spin!

So, what's the answer? The answer is to get rid of all of the "club members" who view stealing and violence as acts of reparation from 100 years ago; to rid our community of those who who'd teach their children to steal to avoid prosecution themselves; to empower our community to stand up for what is right, rather than merely accept what Greenville has become!

The election is upon us, but regardless of whom we elect as President, we will still face the same local challenges and problems for the next 4 years. Neither McCain nor Obama can save the Delta... it is up to us!



you don't have to always bring race into everything said...

If those two boys had been white, (and yes, there are white teenagers who commit these acts as well) would the respondent have described them as "two white boys came beside me" ?

Just wondering.

Well, hell yes, if the boys were white, they would have been identified as, "two white boys". PLEASE??? If they were Hispanic, they may have been identified as "two Mexican boys". It infuriates me to no end to hear that rhetorical if they were purple polka dot - call it as you see it!!! I'm so sick of the race card!!

All I can hope is that the new Police Chief will turn at least some things around. I know that the PD has their hands full and that this can lead to a "it doesn't matter" attitude.

Before you jump on me about being optimistic...just try to be positive. Change can be good. Let's give our future chief a chance to root out these bad seeds to make a positive change in our community.

All Mexicans are Hispanics, yet not all Hispanics are Mexicans!!!

Race Card Victim said...

Who cares what color you are? The issue here is that parents are training their children to steal! What a sick community we have in the Delta.

Parents will train their children how to steal and commit crimes, but have no idea about the issues of this Presidential election.

Check out this site... These are black "VOTERS" in Harlem being asked about why they support Obama:

This could have easily been recorded in Greenville... from both blacks and whites!

to 7:12 and it did happen in Greenville one beautiful Sunday afternoon. My wife came out of Kroger and was slung down and her purse taken. Just at that moment a car with 2 more blacks drove up the assailant jumped in and away they went, only to be followed by a bystander. They were caught. The one that threw her down was sent to the "Boot Camp" program at Parchman, nothing for the other two in the car. It can happen anywhere anytime.

While you are on the subject of the Delta Mafia lets talk about the Crack dealing business. Now most everyone in Greenville knows you can go drive down Nelson Street and buy crack. Also that there is several crack houses and prostitute houses just north of highway 82 across from the McDonalds. You can see the prostitutes crossing the highway to go get breakfast and coffee at mcdonals. Now if we all know this, that means the police must know it too. But still it is allowed to continue. That is because the police and city government is in on the crack dealing. If they were not getting something out of open drug dealing and prostitution in this town, the police and city would run these criminals off. This is the real Delta Mafia.

Greenville's finest!! said...

Called job security!

Improvements needed said...

Until the Mayor and Council find funds to improve salaries, hire more personnell, offer better training and equipment for our GPD, they are limited in what can be accomplished. Beyond that look to the courts of the city and county to determine why many are arrested and back on the streets in a matter of minutes....the Police and Sheriff's office can only do so much!

Prostitutes? Can you give more detail? Like location and price?

Is it true that our new Chief of Police is coming to us from Heidleberg, MS a little town of 865 people with 5 officers.

There are ways to make life miserable for dope dealers and prostitutes. So what if they are back out on the streets again in hours? pick them up again and again. Sooner or later they will move on to greener pastures. Even if the court system is wrong or city is broke that is NO EXCUSE for city govt to IGNORE open drug dealing, crack houses, and whorehouses. Officers while you are on the clock do your best to make life miserable for the drug dealers that are destroying our community. Why do you think all these cars are broken into and purses snatch? it is to feed the drug trade. Do away with open drug dealing, crack houses, and crack whores and you will be amazed how the other crimes will go away.

Most of the police are on the take as well. You can bet that money changes hands to keep centain club members out of jail. Sure the police know about the crack houses and prostitution, but with a salary of $30K, you have to supplement your income somewhere.

When they seize all of those drugs and money on the TV raids, how much of it goes right into their pockets before an "official" count is made? Drug money is supposed to go back to the public, so they are just making sure they get theirs right off the top!

Everyone in our city and county government is on the take. How do you think Ray Humphreys has stayed in power for so long?

It is sad that our police force is only one step away from the thugs and criminals that they "choose" to arrest, but it is true.

Park in any convenience store parking lot along 82 after 7 pm. If you don't see a drug deal openly go down within 15 minutes, you must have blinders on. They don't even try to hide it, because they know that the Greenville mafia will protect (and support) them.

It is sad, but the reality is that they now own and run Greenville! The only escape is to get out of the Delta... quickly!

Victor MCteer is not right on his comments about Barrack Hussein Obama. He only states the lies Barrack has told as the truth. Evidently he did not do a very good job on his so called research. His article he wrote is very one sided. Barrack believes in a socialist country and if elected we will not recognize this country after he destroys our foundings fathers principles and constitution.
